Thank you, also once done could you let me know which dashcam you got (I'm dizzy alreayd looking at the different dash cams)
No problems, I've had mine hardwired for a few months now - just never got round to editing the video! Maybe this weekI’ve a BlackVue front and rear . Currently just plugged into the 12v socket so no parking record. Im also wondering about wiring it to the fuse box but don’t want it to cause problems so I’ll stick as is for the time being
Can't be too careful I suppose, would rather that than it not pick up an incidentIn the end I got myself a Nextbase 322GW, which had 'parking mode' without the need for hardwire. It has a small internal battery good for 15 mins worth of function or about 2 weeks (if fully charged) worth of parking cover. It is quite sensitive though, and gust of wind rocks the car and it turns itself on and records for 30 secs.
Yup, luckily I know the two that park on either side of me at my home car park, so they park socially distanced from me (eg...it's impossible to hit the other's car as we can't reach each other's cars even if the door was open at it's widest setting). I have turned the G-meter down though, from high to low, as previously, any speed hump or 'enthusiatic' driving would trigger it and 'protect' the 2-3 min file from erasing. Now only really hard braking and 'unseen' speed humps would trigger it.Can't be too careful I suppose, would rather that than it not pick up an incident
