Hell yeah! I hope I never need to use my dash cam but it is nice knowing its basically an automatic win in cases like this.Insurance company came back to me. Dash cam evidence was crucial because it was front end damage and no one came up as witnesses. All deductibles are waved and my insurance company is going after this guy.
Right now I'm sitting (un)comfortably in a Dodge Dart complements of progressive waiting for my car to be done.

I'm running a thinkware F770. Kind of pricy but totally worth it. It records when parked (has a voltage cutoff so it doesn't kill your battery), auto saves incidents, has duel save features and will save the footage to the unit in case your SD card gets compromised, has the best camera sensor available, and has a good app. I downloaded this footage from the camera to my phone via the cameras built in wifi.this....this makes me want a dash cam asap, what set up are you using.
Exactly! My insurance agent said they get so much front end damage fraud, e.g. people running into things then claiming damage for the EXACT reason I did. It is really difficult for them to waive fault for front end damage without either a witness or other evidence. Especially if the suspect runs, is absent, OR denying fault. This dash cam saved my ass. If the dude that hit me lied and said that I rear ended him it would be very difficult for me to prove otherwise.Been on the dash cam fence for a while now, I am officially sold.
Unfortunately it just seems to be a necessity owning a nice new car, getting ****ed in a scenario as this would cost way too much.
You can definitely get cheaper ones. I just wanted all the bells and whistles.duuuude, that dash cam is awesome, but damned expensive! about as much as my pulley kit.
That's the real crime here. I ran across what must have been a Dart SXT/Rallye owners club cruise on the highway about a month after getting my ST. Maybe all the stickers and Autozone-grade accessories were weighing them down, but it was a hilariously slow pack of "sporty" cars.Right now I'm sitting (un)comfortably in a Dodge Dart
If you are looking for something to do the job but not break a sweat opening your wallet for, look at the G1W cams. There are a few different versions but they are all around $60 or less and I have had several without issue. Just look for the 96650 novatek processor and you should be good.duuuude, that dash cam is awesome, but damned expensive! about as much as my pulley kit.
Just found this for those whom are interested. Searched for the cam mentioned in Jstump2490 postIf you are looking for something to do the job but not break a sweat opening your wallet for, look at the G1W cams.
