Yes. Or you can tell it to stop when its full.

The audio recording part is great when the officer tells your kid that he ran a red light and of coarse the gps and video when they were at that stop light for 6 seconds. The same video and gps are great to show the judge just how some officers treat young high school drivers! They are also a great tool to use for teenage drivers because you can review their driving habits.
I like the small size of the one in the video. Mine was in the $400. range and is bulky and doesn't have all the cool features. Looks like we are going to be getting a upgrade soon.
Those are all excellent reasons why to own a dash cam! Thanks!

Great Idea. I would love that, put a usb connector on the back of the mirror. I’m pretty sure I saw a post here on MNL with someone who has done this already.

Glenn, the problem with those is that you are not buying from Amazon. You are buying from somebody with 1 feedback. The eBay seller I bought from emailed me as soon I paid and also when they shipped out. They have 1151 feedback with 98.8% positive. Usually I wouldn’t buy from somebody with feedback like that but TECHMOAN suggested them and I had to take into account that people selling stuff from china always have issues with buyers giving them bad feedback because the item usually takes 3 weeks to arrive. The 2nd email made me aware of exactly that. Which I already knew because I buy lots of stuff from all over the world.
Right now I would buy from this guy: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dl ... 1062684569 100% feedback and is located in CA.

In Russia, dashcams are commonly used for protection against insurance scams. Here in the US, they are good for protecting innocent people from police that lack integrity, and for capturing general stupidity (either my own, or other people).
That’s a Great idea, front and rear camera saving to one card. I want 4 way cameras!
