I'm thinking of buying a cheap dash cam for the van. Being a tight git I'm only looking at up to £30 (plus cost of memory card). There's a few on ebay that look reasonable. Has anyone got any experience of these budget dash cams and could recommend one?

They absolutely work. They have been around for ages. Might be worth you checking on Amazon so the product is reviewed rather than the seller, then check the reviews?

This has a Sony camera sensor in it and is about 30 quid. Can get new and used for 25ish (link in the listing).

I got a nextbase 112 on special from Lidl for 30 quid.... same one is 50 in Halfords.
Another £8 for a larger memory card than the one that comes supplied.

Halfords price match and are good with returns.

Something to bare in mind!

I've just been Lidl, or Aldi. I get them mixed up even when I'm in there. And they had one that was around £33 I think and it looked pretty good.

Some these days even come with a rear camera to stick in the back.

And I had one that was a rear view mirror, that showed you what the rear camera was picking up in it, but was a mirror at the same time. And it recorded both front and back. And had impact detection and stuff. And it wasn't that expensive either.
Post automatically merged:

£36 and hundreds of good reviews.


Check that out.

Chinese are on this tech lark. These have been around for decades over there. We're slow to catch on.

In Russia some insurance firms don't even give you insurance without one because police could be bribed so easy years ago. So they've also had them for decades.

I use my GoPro cos I'm a posh pirate!
That'd get nicked around here. Or you'd have to keep hiding it when you get out, and that's a maul and makes a quick shop trip a right effort. Apparently you crash most local to home because you know the area so well you ignore some signage etc. Driving instructor told me that. And then I kept crashing close to home and thinking, hmmmm I should know better. :D :D

Thanks for the suggestions. I should get home from work sometime Thursday so will take a loom first in Aldi & Lidl on Friday.

I went for the Motorola mdc150. £39.99 from Argos. I had a £10 off voucher, so cost me £29.99 Already had a 32Gb card. I've just chucked in the van so I'll see how good it is on my trip to work on Sunday. I think I had better turn off the sound recording. I don't want to record myself singing along to Planet Rock ;-)
