Cheap dash cam by calibrax

Bought this the other day from Amazon for under £15 delivered...

It's a cheap Chinese version of a dash cam. Another £15 got me a class 10 32GB SDHC card, so for under £30 I have a dash cam that can record over 5 hours of footage.

Here's a sample video from my commute tonight...

The camera comes on and starts recording when you plug the charger into the cigar lighter socket (or when the ignition comes on if you wire it into an ignition switched power supply), and it switches off when the power goes off. It records in AVI files of 2min/5min/15min length (you set it).

It's not fabulous HD quality, the sound is pretty poor, but for the money it's well worth it. Could be very useful in the event of an accident to show what happened!

Have the resolution set as high as you can as number plates are unreadable on lower resolutions, Also don't get micro sd cards in 32gb I've had 2 now and both have failed in a short time.
