Loooking at getting a dash cam for my car, ideally looking for one that will fit behind the rear view mirror ( so its not to obvious ). Dont want to pay through the roof for it. Is there anywhere in the Wirral that sell these, I have looked on ebay but would like to see what the fit would look like before I buy.

Have a browse through the following link, he does a comprehensive review with youtubes for many dashcams CLICKY

The main problem with the cheap ones is their reaction to light eg dark picture because of bright sky, slow reaction to change of light under trees, dark picture at night.

I've been using this one for the past few months:

http://tinyurl.com/nphp89j

(scroll down to see the listing details and picture)

Lots of different sellers seem to be selling it, expect to pay around £20.

Its been an absolute godsend and a pleasure to report some terrible van driving on the M53! There was a great one last week where a company van pulled out on me without indicating - driver giving all kinds of abuse for HIS mistake.

So I reported it to his company. Got the usual "sorry for this, out driver disputes your claim". So I send them the camera footage.... laugh

I use a 32Gb card which is more than enough to hold several days of one hour drives before it overwrites. You can modify the settings of the camera to not overwrite, split up recording times and so on.
