Hello

Anyone using a dash camera ( either front or rear ). Have been doing some research and the Korean flavors seem more evolved than the Chinese offering currently.

Recommendations on who is using what?

I have one of these;
Garmin Dash Cam 20 review - CNET

It's note the cheapest but the resolution is good, even at night. Date, time, speed, gps location are all recorded with the video. When you look at the video on a computer, the app shows your video on one side of your screen, and brings up google maps on the other side with a dot showing your location and it moves as the movie plays. Quite impressive.

When there is an impact, the amount and direction of the G-Force is recorded and shown on the screen.

There are cheaper ones if you want just video, but I like this one.

Thanks for the response. Researching the variables. Couple of the advance/complex units will interface with the trucks computer port so will have that data also at time of "change" in dynamics.

Again thanks.

Wrinkle possibly?

Let us know which one you decide on.
I will let you know. I have found a possible problem or not. Reading my manual I find reference to a auto dimming sensor on the rearview mirror which is where one often places or position near aforementioned mirror a dash camera.

any clue if this is built into the mirror mount or the back of the mirror, need to step outside and see if this is subtle or glaring obvious. On my mirror it looks to be on the left of the mirror logically to sense on coming headlights and do what it is designed for.

Taping power for the camera is also an issue with routing to the fuse corral. More research. This is like job security.:)

Auto dimming rear view mirror sensor usually is on the face of the mirror housing facing the back of the car. It needs to sense someone elses highbeams from behind.

You can put your dashcam on the windshield in front of the rearview mirror.
