I'm picking one of these up when they go on sale tomorrow. 1080P with GPS, reviews are average but the price point is good.

Did you read the reviews on this product? They did not look good to me

I did check on several sites and the reviews ran from poor to average. I'm hoping they have made improvements in it. I seen it in the Costco ad for 79.95 starting tomorrow, it's 139.00 plus on Amazon and 149.95 at Target. Guess I'll take a chance and give it a try.

As I previously stated, RoadHawk cameras are the best. I've been using my cameras daily since buying them several years ago. The RoadHawk HD is now available directly in the US.

I have the "4Sight" dashcam in my car and TV. Not cheap, but has every bell and whistle you can think of. Audio, front AND rear simultaneous video, GPS, speed, KML Google map tracking, 32GB card, loop recording, impact recording, both front and rear cameras are adjustable, etc. I've had both units since 2012 and no problems. Video is crystal clear to the point you can read the tags of cars near you and identify faces of drivers.
Cost about half of most high-end dashcams. I think I paid $220 for mine AND it does front and rear at the same time.

How about a GoPro? I've used mine as a dash cam as well as a dive camera for video and stills. It's so versatile. If your going to spend the money that has been mentioned in other posts, get a camera you can continue to use after you park.

Just a thought.

Sounds like it may not be long before these become factory options, if they aren't already on some high-end cars.

Although the GoPro camera is probably one of the best cameras available, be aware that most, if not all, GoPro Cameras do not have 'true looping'. It will loop until the camera is shut off, at which point it saves the video to the card and will not write over it. Eventually, the card gets full and the camera shuts off ... not good for a Dash Cam.

I moved my GoPro into a different job and replaced it with a SJCAM SJ4000:
SJCAM SJ4000 Action Camera (Black) SJ4000B B&H Photo Video

It's no GoPro, but does have 'true looping', fits GoPro mounts, and does a good job as a 'one-direction Dash Cam'.
