I have one of those A119. Its been really good for the past year. I don't upload footage as im not one of those people.. 

 

I got the one with the capacitor so that when I turn the key off it has time to shutdown and you wont get broken media. https://www.ebay.com/p/VIOFO-A119-2-0-LCD-Capacitor-Novatek-96660-2k-HD-1440p-Car-Dash-Camera-DVR/2281375095?_trksid=p2047675.l2644

I purchased a couple of Transcend dashcams last year. Both work well.

Picked up a Viofo A119s V2 w/ GPS for NZ$98 in November.Keep an eye on OzBargain as it's usually on special around the US$65 mark.

When I wanted a dash-cam, I found this website https://drivercam.co.nz/ 

 

Not only did I order a device for my car and had it properly installed with all the wiring hidden and connected, but I had another fitted to the rear windscreen.

 

Both installations were carried out at my home so I didn't have to leave my car a some garage for half a day. 

 

 

@rogercruse What model did you get? Does it work well?

I've got the Dashcam 55 and I must say I am quite impressed with the quality and some of the features (eg - speed cameras, notifying if the traffic starts moving in front of you, collusion detection). One of the poorly executed features is the voice command as I would often have it trigger with music or talking in the car. The built in WiFi is handy as I can just download footage straight to my phone.

 

Here is a video I've recorded today of an idiot tailgating people and aggressively lane switching to give you an indication on quality. Note, since I've turned off voice commands near the end you see me "save" the video but it is simple to do. Also gives you an indication of audio quality.

 

 

 

Tailgating is not on, but I have some empathy for the 'rusty truck' driver as the car in front of him should have moved into the left lane on completion of passing. I was in Spain last year and was amazed at how effectively this rule (in their case 'keep right') was observed by all drivers. Motorway driving there was a pleasure unlike the debacle of NZ motorways.

This turned out to be a useful thread!

 

I think I am going to bite the bullet and go hard - get the BlackVue 750S wired in professionally from https://drivercam.co.nz/.

 

Yes it is more expensive, but the camera quality on front and rear is excellent, the FOV is about perfect at 140, I like the smaller form factor without the screen and I like the idea of potentially being able to capture car-park miscreants who ding and dash...

 

Will update as and when!

My wife and I got rear-ended this past weekend, luckily we are both okay, but a fair bit of damage to the car (it's being checked over now).  Luckily the driver admitted fault immediately, and to our insurance company. But I'll be getting a dash cam soon, with both front and rear cams.
