I love my A119S.Bought from the right seĺler on AliExpress, you do get what was advertised. It's tiny, sits on a small GPS containing base, has a normal mini USB port to connect it to the PC and power it, display I find useful for setup and verification, can be turned off and you can get a polfilter for it.Vid quality is good.

As previous I have an A119s and have fitted 3 others, one in the father in laws car and 2 in friends, all working fine with no issues over the past 6-12m.

Aesthetics play a big part for me so the suction mounts are a no no. I have a mobius in the rear and and a transcend 200 in the kids car, the Transcend is good but bulky, the mobius are great size wise but the night vision is not as good as the A119s.

I've had many dashcams over the past 7-8 years across all budgets (I bought one from China for less than a fiver that shares the casing with the Transcend as a punt for the rear side window, it's truly shocking and not as advertised @ 1080p etc.)

Was so anti dash cam but coming round to the idea...

I know you get what you pay for generally speaking l, but being on the fence I don't want to blow a wedge at this point.

From what I can see though I do want one that has parking mode as that's as important to me as what goes on when I'm driving. From what I can make out that's going to mean a hard wired set up? Good night vision as well as do a fair bit of night driving.

What sort of budget am I going to need for something with that kind of functionality?

Basically I want a Blackvue DR750S-2Ch don't I but not for that money

I've had a transcend drivepro 200 about 5 years. It's been good.
It's on a suction mount so it's not a faff to move.

I have a Thinkware F770 installed by Chameleon Codewing. No screen, front and back cameras and parking mode - all hard-wired in and senses the battery voltage to cut off when needed. Apart from the start announcement I forget it's there, as it's sits very neatly up and behind the rear view mirror. Its controlled by my mobile over a p2p wifi connection. No cloud stuff, but the the newer F800 pro does that if you want it.

This thread has got me interested in a dashcam, I did have one a while back but do like the sound of these ones with parking mode, the thinkware is tugging my rug but think it may be more than what j want to pay

Why do people prefer dual cams products over simply using two cams independently? Since I never interact with my own cams (they just start on power on of the car and record), why would I go for a usually expensive product, that also makes me install the cable between them, which is usually more complicated than just have 1 cable to handle in the front and one in the trunk. Plus the advantage to go for the best single cam products?
