after a couple of recent incidents I have decided it would be a good idea to invest in a dashcam, so any thoughts guidance and recommendations would be greatly appreciated, many thanks.

Hi mate

See my thread here:

http://thealpinaregister.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=18833&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=dash+cam&start=0

I purchased the Transcend 220 from Halfords, it often goes to 100 in their deals:

http://www.halfords.com/technology/dash-cams/dash-cams/transcend-drivepro-220-dash-cam?cm_mmc=Google+PLA-_-Dash+Cams-_-Dash+Cams-_-165005&_$ja=tsid:60494%7Ccgn:GoogleShopping%7Ckw:165005&istCompanyId=b8708c57-7a02-4cf6-b2c0-dc36b54a327e&istItemId=lxlmppawq&istBid=tzal&_$ja=tsid:35522

Coupled it with this hard wiring kit (also available from Halfords) that piggy backs into the fuse board for auto on/off and its been good for over a year.

Just a cautionary note, ones speed could easily calculated using objects that might be recorded on a dash-cam, as several motorcyclists have found to their cost. Obviously we all stick to the posted limits and only press the loud pedal on the autobahn!

I've had a blackvue for 4 years and I'm more than happy with it.
Pricey and I'd probably buy a cheaper halfords type ( better than you'd think ) one for the wifes car

It's a big point to consider, however, with two incidents in a couple of weeks when I have not been in the car I think the trade off may be worth it!
