Dash Cams

I'm looking into a new dash cam since my G1W-C decided to be junk.

I'd like to have one that mounts to the rear view mirror and doesn't act whacky with a subwoofer going


What do you guys have?

I've been telling myself to buy a dashcam for about a year now, but I'm a techno noob so I don't know what's what. I looked into the GoPro range and it's supposedly the Cadillac of dashcams. The Hero 4 Black looks real good to me, but it is a bit pricey. Silver is a bit cheaper and it has a touch screen, which is always nice. Basically you can't go wrong with GoPro. Even the entry model is better than most other brands it seems.

I'd steer you away from go pros because they don't have the functions of a true dash cam. (Loop recording, motion detection, etc)

I've been using a Hero 3 Silver, but I eventually put it on drone duty and upgraded to a Hero 3+ Black. I'm starting to use the loop recording function on it now to save space.

Check out road hawk. Pricey but that is a true dash cam. Don't know about the US but apparently courts and insurance in the UK accepts its footage as evidence as it is full proof. roadhawkusa.com

I got the Dome G90 A7LA30 and so far it's great.
