      *If this is not appropriate, mod..please let me know and I will delete it ASAP*

      Hello Guys
      I am just wondering how many of you know of dash cams
      I realize that there aren't much information on dashcams in America
      so I started a blog translating some of the dash cam reviews from Asia.
      I just started doing review and unboxing of my own.
      Please pardon my voice..muffled mic and bad English don't mix together

      My first attempt on Abee V30.


      If you are interested, you are welcome to check it out. it's called dashcamsworld.com
      It'd be even better if you can give me some suggestions or what you'd like to see more
      in my blog.

      Thanks for reading. I really appreciate it.

      Sorry, couldn't watch the video you posted, at work and they block everything. My buddy just picked up this camera and he appears to be a decent gadget for the price he paid for it. However, he does not use it for a dash cam.

      I don't, but I've been starting to wonder how many people do. I see crash videos posted all of the time anymore and I'm often left wondering "wow, am I the only one who doesn't have a Go Pro stuck in my car?"

      If you are paranoid enough, I guess they're worth it - it all depends on what/why you are going to buy it for. I'm into motorcycles (even though I'm motorcycle challenged at the moment) and TONS of those guys/gals have them to document their rides/travels, etc. I don't think I would ever spend the money just to hook one up in my car for evidentiary purposes though

      has anyone tried any iOS apps for this? Thinking of a benefit of live wireless uploading.

      Black Box Recorder

      DriveMate Rec
