    As per the title really. My friend is going to hardwire one in for me at the weekend when he also fits the Scorpion :smiley:

    What do people use? Budget up to £120 (reluctantly!) and would like to see if I can grab a good deal today.

    I think I recall @nutnutwelshman saying he had a Mio on some random CSOC thread on Facebook.

    Looks good, do you have both hardwired? or regularly charge them both before journeys?

    they are very discreet..cant see them in the car..some dash cams are way too big and thats great opportunity for thieves..
    they can be fitted into the inside fuse box but i got an usb cable and they are plugged in my cig lighter....

    Some legal info was recently circulated at work on the legality of where the dash cam is located in the windscreen. Fairly common sense but worthwhile making sure you don't fall foul of this.

    Yeah, very good post. Common sense as Pav has said, but it's amazing how many people you see driving with sat navs on the windscreen, right in their field of vision...

    Such a shame all these health and safety regulations are preventing the progress of natural selection
