    Has anyone got one and would you recommend it?

    I've been looking into them and there's so many options, I'm having a hard time deciding if it's worth spending £50 or going up to £100 to get one?

    I have one but annoys me having to keep charging it and having the cable running.

    Had a nextbase dashcam fitted at halfords for 140 pounds. wires all hidden and highly recommend it, especially after being involved in a crash for cash scam. No charging as its wired to the fusebox.

    you still have to buy the sd card though, and i did pay to have it fitted so no wires hanging about, all looks very tidy.

    Ahh I was looking at reviews of this one earlier. Seems decent during the day, but a little sketchy at night. I'm guessing you could fiddle the exposure to get it a bit lighter.

    I have an Abeo, wired in. It clips over the rear view mirror so very discrete. It is wider than the existing mirror, so may affect your view depending on the car. Had it 2 years and recommend it. Occasional issue, it says problem with the sd card. Take card out and put it back in again solves that.

    The Abeo looks a little over what I'd like to pay.
