Currently don't have a dashcam, would love one though as we do a bit of road tripping during holidays etc and having  a dashcam would give us that extra bit of coverage should any incidents occur. When my wife hasnt ripped off the phone mount from the windscreen I use my Microsoft 640XL......... otherwise its the good old standby of wife and this......

I don't currently have a dashcam, but have been looking into them recently, so winning one would be great!

Oooh, I'd love to win this one. Have been mulling a Dashcam for a while now and the Navman would be perfect.

 

Currently, nothing in the car for recording misdeeds of myself and/or others.

Would very happily put one of these on the dash. Got a lot of driving coming up over the next few months so one of these would be superb

I dont have a dashcam either. 

 

One would have been handy when this happened to Himself a few months ago...

 

 

He survived and is now very happy with his brand new Ford Ranger Wildtrak.

 

I think he crashed on purpose but I cant prove it!

 

Anyhows, I do fear for him on those windy back roads out to Port Waikato where he goes everyday for work.

 

Meanwhile, I have to follow one of these guys around if I need footage of my travels.

My current model is getting a bit old now:

Sadly, the memory is showing signs of age, and isn't as reliable now.

 

Would love an upgrade - but maybe not quite this far:

 

 

So, the NavMan would be a good step in the right direction!

My dashcam also needs updating. My sister wants to retire. (This is also not a picture of my sister.)

Looks like you don't need a dashcam so much as a car to put it in.

I currently use my eyeballs - bit of an issue with the replay though! Would love one of these :)

I have a teen about to get his restricted licence, so having a dashcam in the car could well avoid problems in the event of a prang. It could also be a not-entirely-subtle reminder that dad is always watching...

Would love one of these, being an Auckland based commuter = near misses are a daily occurrence

 

Over the course of a week I could probably gather enough footage to create a weekly 30min program :P

No dashcam here sadly. Closest I get is my wife, but she isn't very reliable. Has a tendency to fall asleep, talk at inappropriate moments or just plain does not remember anything. Also has an aversion to being mounted in the car innocent.

 

 As she would probably not like any photos of her splayed across the internet, here's a great pic of a cat on the dash...

Yep - old manual system here.

The system is getting past it's use by date, I'm running out of memory and often I get black screens. Also not very good in low light. Bright lights are manageable with the addition of optional filters but have to manually activate those.

 

Playback of recorded trips is voice only as well.

My old but trusty S3 doubles up as a dashcam and gps. A proper one would be nice
