Dash Cam?

Hi. Can anyone recommend a dash cam, and how to mount it?
I'm thinking, not a cell phone.
I have a garmin gps mounted on the MINI stalk already.
Maybe a gps/dash cam combo?

Thanks.

Go to ByteTroniks site, they have an awesome one that mounts on the mirror and connects via the OBD port. No wiring

$20 for shipping is to much.

Although a little more expensive, I like BlackVue https://www.blackvue.com. Mine is the 650 which I don't think is made anymore. They are small, capture a high quality image, and have a variety of configurations. Experience has taught me that they require a high quality memory card. IMHO, dash cams are one of those things you get what you pay for, especially in image quality. Think the ability to read a license plate number of the car that just sideswiped you and took off.

Good luck on your search.

Ive installed Owl Cam, www.owlcam.com

It has front/rear HD cameras and also acts as security/anti theft/break-in/car damage prevention as well. Installation less than 10 minutes as it connects to OBD2
