    discrete dashcam 28th Sep 19 at 10:24 PM
    Hi any recommendations on a decent discrete dashcam? Looking to get one hardwired.

    Don't really want it in your face so discrete preferable, just want it to function as it should with features worth having.

    Just looking to the mse community for any advise or if there is one you went with after narrowing down done options and are quite happy with.

    Many Thanks

    Hi,
    I have the Viofo A129 Duo. Very discreet & great quality. Or the A119 just for the front.

    Which makes this and most other erroneously posted dashcam threads not fine at all.

    Do you mean a discreet dashcam?

    Most dashcams are mounted on your windshield, the camera lens faces forward and records the road ahead of you. To be more specific, these dashcams are known as single-lens dashcams because they only have the one lens.

    I purchased one of these prime day last year, not had any issues with it. You can stream direct to your phone whilst in the car but I just leave it running and if I've needed anything from the footage just downloaded the section I've needed. With having no screen it's nowhere near as noticable.

    They do go on sale for around £40 every so often.

    Thanks for that informative post Richard, where are you based as this is a UK website and we usually use windscreen rather than the American version of windshield.
    I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.
