    My head say no.... It worth something so someone might want to steal it.

    My heart say it's time consuming to unplug it everytime.

    What do you think????

    Do you want it stolen?

    OP don`t give him your address

    Personally I would not leave it in plain sight or in the car.

    My sat nav is worth a fiver but I wouldn't trust a thicko petty criminal to know that.

    For a camera it depends how well hidden it is and where you park.
    Don't harass a hippie. You'll get bad karma.

    Never trust a newbie with a rtb tale.

    I never bother, and I sometimes have to park the car in some less then desirable places. I also have a child's car seat in there that cost over 100 - never remove that either.

    I've got a Nextbase with a magnetic mount which just slides out but I was forever forgetting to put it back. Sod's law says that's when an incident will occur.

    So I've wrapped the camera loosely in black tissue paper we had lying around with just a small hole for the lens. It sits behind the rear view mirror and with the shape blurred, it's really difficult to spot amongst the rain and pedestrian sensor gubbins.

    Oh and thinking about it I also took my locking wheel nuts off 5 years ago - yet to have the alloys nicked.

    I leave mine in the car as it would be too much hassle to do otherwise.

    I've had a dash cam stuck to my windscreen for about 2 years now and no one has ever seemed interested in it.

    I would much prefer the wheels than the dashcam, far more useful. Dusting the cobwebs off the aluminium melting furnace and await the offers

    Dashcams and child car seats are just a sideline, you have to diversify in the current market conditions.
