Re:


Anyone looking at blackbox recorders of any brand do your research. I have a DR400G HD and a ITB80G, both a decent units. Some units by some manufactures the data is stored in its own way that can only be read by PC's not mac (not saved as video files), GPS tracking is all over the place and other issues. I currently have including the ones above mentioned, either on my desk or in friends and families cars and trucks on trial 17 different "Blackbox" recorder untis. These vary from a full HD, GPS, G sensor dual camera unit right down to a simple cheap recorder to just record whats going on infront.

I have been in interstate truck driving for nearly 11 years now and for the last 6 years I have had a constant recording device installed. This up until recently has been very expensive. My first setup was just over $2000 but it saved my license on two occasions and prevented myself from being sent to jail for neg driving causing injury due to the evidence I was able to provide putting myself in the right. Now you can get similar quality video for as little as $100, less for lower quality video.

I am able to supply a unit for $50 that will be sufficient for court capturing an event infront of you. The video quality is not High Def but you do not need to see the colour of the dust on the other vehicles panels. To get the video file off it you just pull out the SD card and plug it into your computer. On the other hand I have a multi camera unit to be installed in the truck I drive on my days off that has full HD, GPS, G sensor and records sound inside the cab that is going to be tested for me.

Any questions fee free to ask.

Note: 12 months ago I gave up the interstate truck driving to work in the mines to have more time at home. I still do the odd run here and there for !@#$ and giggles but I still am a strong supporter of the trucking industry.

Re:


A bit too bulky which means you gonna have to take it down everytime you leave the car or risk someone breaking-in and try and pinch it thinking it's a GPS.

Re: Black Box Car Camera Recorder


Not sure yet if I'll use it as the "Accident Cam" or just the "4WD Cam" I originally bought it for.
Here it is mounted behind the rearview mirror away from my line-of-sight.

Don't need the screen folded down for it to work, just if you want to review any of the recorded files.

Re: Black Box Car Camera Recorder


Haven't tried the battery life yet but it comes with a car adapter and can be setup such that it starts recording when the dc is on and stops recording when the dc goes off.
Recording can be set to blocks of 2/5/15 mins or continuous when button pressed and will record for the whole space on the sd card upto 32GB. With the block recorded files, when the card is full it writes over the oldest file to give continuous recording capability.
Search ebay for "In Car Video Recorder" and read all the specs there.

Re:


In today's market Jalal the cost is a bit much for me at this stage and will watch what happens.

This is a great idea to have in today's driving climate.
