Dash cam recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hello all. Can anyone recommend a front/rear dashcam pair for my Vellfire? I’ve never used a dashcam before so I don’t really know what I need.


I don’t want bells and whistles, just something that will provide evidence in case of an accident, including if someone hits me when I’m parked with the ignition off. Ideally they would be as small and discreet as possible and not drain my battery much. No need for a screen (can’t see the point of them - are they useful?)

I have a Garmin DC56 fitted behind the rear view mirror and a Garmin DC 46 on the back window, they are powered off a piggy back fuse plugged into the front fog fuse No.3 and are switched on/off, for parking,  via a small round switch fitted in the dome light at the front. they can be voice activated to record video or take a picture, there is also an app for use with your phone. nearly all dashcams come with a screen so that the angle of view can be set other wise it could be too high or too low to see the incident, hth
