Can anyone recommend a cheap dashcam

Recommended Posts

Hi

I would like to buy a cheap dash cam but one that wont break down in a few month.

Some idiot clipped my side mirror luckily the mirror went flying on my lap while driving. Mean reason I want one is as I will be driving daily and I don't want to get one that breaks or records s**t. I already know maplin ones always fail. Use to work there so I know lol

This one any good?

I know of quite a few people I know that have fitted one of these:  

 I have been thinking of getting a DashCam, and if I did this would be the one I would personally choose.

I have heard of no complaints about the ones that I have known to be fitted.

There are loads on Ebay ranging around the £40.00 mark - which is really quite good considering the quality of reproduction!

I know Bob personally, (when I had an R75) and if he says it's good, it's good... :) His Fitting: http://www.the75andztclub.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=214247&highlight=Dash+Cam

I don't see the Camera in question on that review...???

Also you asked for a cheap Camera that won't break down. Well to start with that is a pretty tall order.

I think you better raise you budget if you want perfection I'm afraid - and even then there's no guarantee that it won't break down.

Also if you start to look at every review, there will always be bad apples - it's the nature of the beast...

Good luck. ;)

If you can still get hold of them, the G1WH are a decent cheap and cheerful dashcam. I had a G1W which lasted just over a year before it stopped powering on, but the G1WH I replaced it with seems better built and has been working perfectly.

Here is a demo video for quality. Bear in mind YouTube will drop the quality slightly:

Not bad...

The only downside personally is the size and the type of holder, which was the main thing I liked about the A118 - quite unobtrusive and hard to see from the outside. ;) Also they tend to flip upwards in the event of an impact.

I found a link: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Novatek-Detection-Recorder-G-sensor-Technology/dp/B00HMNFWYW  Good price!!

I've just bought my a wife the RAC one from currys to replace the cheap Ebay one she had in before. 

Only had it in for a few weeks but it seems well built and has a good clear video. 

I think I cost me £37.

The camera in question is in that review a118 and  it looks like this is nice size and no one can see it. last think i want is someone trying to steal the camera or people asking  why i have a camera.  i have a look at currys but might get the a118

Daz - been looking at getting one of these. How's your experience been with it? Can get a new one from a decent shop for £82 now.

the capacitor one looses time and date on some reviews

good  link to use 

I've been using the capacitor version (A118C) for 18 months now and it has never lost the time, never broken a recording, never failed to record. A very well recommended dashcam from me.

I also recommend the Nextbase 312GW. Easy to use, easy to download footage, and love the fact, its easy to clip in and out. Also nice clear footage. The only downside is, although it records other drivers who may have caused an accident or drive like a tw*t, it also records your driving!
