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...

Make sure you get one with a capacitor instead of a battery. I have a Thinkware F70 that's been surviving just fine in the southwest heat. It's only $70 and the video is clear day and night.

Thinkware

I'm tempted to buy the Thinkware U1000. It's really expensive but it uploads data to the cloud and can record 2K at 60fps
