    That camera looks good. I’m tempted to buy one. Why the swearing while fitting?

    OK locally uploaded images, so the rez is even worse.
    Sorry I can't find a way of including the google photo ones.
    What are people using for including high rez images?

    What are your thoughts on the dashcam and fitting it? I just ordered one from the link you posted. Any tips/advice?

    I've never had a dash cam before so have nothing to compare it to, it seems fine.
    Fitting was just a little fiddly it wasn't helped by the fact that the metal clips on my mirror were really weak, once I'd bent them in a bit so it held on better, it went on fairly easily.

    I tried to fit this. But the automatic dimming sensor got in the way. Did you have the same problem?

    Ah ok. After doing some research it’s the humidity sensor, maybe your car doesn’t have it. I just shoved it in loose. Not an ideal situation but works.

    I’m very impressed with the dashcam though, it was quick and easy to fit, just plus right in, easy setup, good quality for £60.
