How many of us here have a dashcam installed? if so what model have you got and what do you think of it? I bought a DDpai M5 off ebay just before christmas, as a gift from 'tother half, I did orignally want a Nextbase 312GW which seems to a favourite generally, but I couldn't quite stretch to that at the time, my parents have one, and they say its really easy to setup. The M5 I have at its core is actually not too bad, the video quality seems quite good and clear, especially I think the night performance is good, and once you spend 10-15 minutes working out the chinese instructions it has a nice fleet of features. It does have two major flaws though, the "remote control" that came with it needs repairing everytime you power the cam on, and it actually went faulty within the first week of using it, if it worked as intended it would be brilliant, recording a picture and 10 seconds of video at the click of a button which can be attached to you keyring or affixed in the car permanently. the second issue is the chincy microphone, which just gives awful sound quality, not essential in a dashcam maybe, but if its gonna be implemented, at least do it right? at the moment mine isn't hardwired, mainly because I found out quite quickly if left on it does drain the battery! but I do have intentions of hardwiring it in with a power switch in future. it is also quite compact and light because it lacks a physical screen on the unit, if you would like to view live video of you driving (as opposed to actually watching the road?) you can hook up your smartphone wirelessly and view on that, the app also provides the funcionality of scrolling through all the past video and editing clips, posting to social media and downloading footage, alongside tweaking all the options like G sensor settings and quality. here's a little compilation of clips I have on youtube, inspired by the vids that Vio does
