Need a New Dashcam

Recommended Posts

My Papago! dashcam started acting up a while ago, and now completely busted. Had it for about 5 years and it wasn't cheap back then...

I am looking for recommendations for a new one. What I liked about my Papago! was the option to have the screen + the green "on" light turned off so it doesn't distract me while driving at night.

Any recommendations for a reliable and reasonably priced cam?

 

Thanks

Just buy a cheapo chuckaway from Lazada.

If you're in Bangkok go to Fortune Town, that's where we got ours from. Cheap as chips and came with memory card and all the accessories, works really well. There are dozens of shops selling them.

Yeh, the sting comes when yer chum asks you to playback on your PC And the repro is much the same as your Bacview recommended by You Tube experts and costing much less. 825 me chum paid, i fell for You Tube!

Yes, I had a look. So many choices it is confusing. That's why I posted here asking for any recommendations...

The subject has come up many times on the motoring forum, there is no clear cut which is best. I have one I bought from Lazada over 5 years ago for around 700 baht, it's still working fine.

Looks interesting, but for this price no GPS?

Can you tell which make / model?

Try the Viofo A 129 Duo. It has front and rear camera, wifi and GPS, full HD video and costs only about 3700 Baht. I ordered it at Lazada, was shipped very fast and is working very well. It has only a small screen, which gets turned off after a while. If you like you can stream it on your smartphone or later on download the sequences to your smartphone and watch the clips there. Check it out on YouTube.

Buy from lazada at your peril, bought a cheap Chinese one, dead battery and the date would not set. Not a good enough reason to return it apparently, turns on but that's about it, does not record any longer either!

Morestech G1W, not sure if it's still made. No GPS.

So you think you thing they are a novelty. I don't happen to think so, I can remember when I did an 8+ trip to Surin my phone satnav was playing up so relied on the wife. Got lost. N/B all the signs around Surin are in Thai.

Eventually got there but took some 2+ hours more than it should have taken.

 

Might be that you don't know how to use one that could be your problem. Having seen a lot of your post that wouldn't surprise me.
