    Dash cam recommendations please 7th Jul 18 at 10:24 PM
    As above, along with justification for same, or desisting.

    I'm heading off on another reasonably long haul in a few days - France>Mediterranean Spain backblocks, then back into France and old Var stamping ground before rtn>UK.

    My wheels are entirely familiar with France, barely register in Spain :-)

    Pro's and con's of dash cam would be appreciated, along with simple choice advice from this range, before MrT Direct closes down on 9 July.[hence finessing>'In Stock' items].

    I'm not desperate about it, but increasingly, as a widely-travelled, experienced driver femme of biblical span, find myself wondering if it's now wise to have. I'll have a full trailer both ways; no idea if dash cam would have part to play in front and rear vision, which I see some offer.
    Thoughts?

    Any Nextbase dashcam, depends on how much you want to pay they all work well.
    I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

    Techmoan recommended the Aukey DR02 as his best for affordable front/rear combined

    Apologies for tardy thanks to you all, which I have now re-pasted 3 times.
    Power outages have been daily events over last week, in what is already a notspot.
    I appreciate your replies and will consider the info. therein.

    No complaints from me so far, works like a charm and video quality is excellent.
