    Dash cam

    Anyone thought about this? Or has one fitted?

    I ideally want to fit one that looks as OEM as possible, not an obvious camera sticking out like a sore thumb.

    I've looked at mirror style dash cams but I don't know what's good and what's not.

    Any advice/information on this, please?

    I've got the A118c dash cam,
    complete with rear camera.
    The main front camera is roughly 8 mega pixel,
    and the rear facing one is roughly 1 mega pixel, the rear one is pants really, it's ok if you're stuck in traffic as you can clearly see the car behind then, again at night it's even worse it just looks like you have a load of UFOs behind you

    The front camera is really clear during daylight hours or at night.
    It fits behind your interior view mirror so does look fairly OEM. The rear camera you have to attach to the rear window or head lining trim, or possibly it can attach to your rear bumper but if you do that you'll have to keep wiping it clean.

    I think they cost from £38 up to £65

    I think it's A118c or A119c Novatek, the one I have.

    Plus when I was looking for a dash cam about 18 months ago, there was a good dash cam that attached to your interior mirror, it had loads of apps built into it, including Bluetooth for hands free calling.
    It was on Ebay a while ago.

    I've had the miwitness front and rear kit for years, is a good bit of kit, the original one was a smooth piano black and looked nice which is why i got it. But the latest model doesn't looks as simple/clean
    Just like a golf................But better!!!

    I’ve got a Nextbase fitted in my daily driver which is a Touareg, so the fact it sits to the side and behind the mirror is not a problem - bought it cos of the good reviews. Think it may be a little more noticeable in a Corrado, perhaps best to google some reviews for mirror mounted cams and see from there.

    I've not got one in my Corrado but in my A4 I have a Ddpai M6 plus. It's quite small and the picture quality is excellent

    I've had one of these for a year or two and although cheap they are excellent and very small, good picture, wide angle and number plates are easily readable, just leave it on the out of the box 2 minute recording and old file overwrite, easily hidden out of the drivers view to the side of and behind the rear view mirror, more expensive cameras like the Nextbase have nice magnetic fixings but I've been quite impressed with this little cheap one.
    about £32 when I got one but a bargain currently for £22.99!
