i live in Edmonton Alberta and if you also live or have visited Edmonton you know the drivers are terrible! i have had so many clsoe calls i wanted to have video to prove i was not at fault if i am ever to get into an accident. this camera is awesome, cheap and easy to use. not so good things: i don't know now if the newer ones have been updated but you can't use SCHD cards and if you have windows 7 you can't change the date. the suction cup it comes with was dryed out and would not work. so i made my own from a sat radio mount. *pictured by rear view mirror* im going to get one of the HD cams too.
I drive a lot of long distances and have ended up around lot of bad drivers and other incidents where having a camera running would have saved me a lot of grief, this camera works quite well for this application and is easy to mount and pretty simple to use. I transfer it from vehicle to vehicle and even in my classic car, the piece of mind I get from having it has reduced a lot of my stress while driving! The only issue I have had with the unit is that even if the unit is straight and level, it will record on a slight angle and off to the right, but by placing the unit more to the left side of my windshield the curve of the glass has fixed that. (maybe it was made that way because of the curve of modern windshields) I recommend this camera to anyone who drives, it could save you a lot of money and headaches in the long run!
