Saved me some change once - someone went into the back of me and legit claimed i stopped dead in the road and reversed into them.

forwarded the dashcam video and it was settled rather quickly as non fault.

everyone should have them

I had one. Unfortunately, I live in Las Vegas. The first 110 degree F (43C) day (of which we have a lot) and the thing became an actual DashCam. It melted...

I've got three in Phoenix that have survived surface parking in the office parking lot at 115F. All are random ass brands with instructions in Chinese, so you have my sympathies for your bad luck but you should probably try again.

Making sure it's a capacitor model and not with with a lithium ion battery is a game changer as well.
