@bootyluvr - You just get that? Let me know how it is. I've been contemplating one for a while. I used to use my gopro but I got stick of having to take it down and put it up every time. It seemed like something people would steal too easily.
you should post a sample clip of how it looks in day/night from your car
I have it high up, right under the middle of the rearview mirror, with the suction cup below the dot matrix I do see the widow peaks from the wipers.Sorry to bump an old thread (I did search a bit but this seemed like the best old thread to use), I was just curious if anyone had any pics of their dash cam install locations they would like to share (I saw some from bootyluvr on page 2, just looking for more detail).
I have a Thinkware F800Pro installed in my Stealth and I'm pretty happy with the unit; but, while that car is down for the count for a bit, I am wanting to install the camera unit (or another one, still debating that) into my Civic. However, the issue I'm seeing is the damn widows peak from the windshield wipers which prevent from having the camera unit installed high up by the mirror mount in order to be centerline with the car. A few inches to one side or the other won't bother me if it keeps the camera high and out of the way; but, looking at the area not swiped by the wipers, that doesn't seem possible. Anyhow, just curious what others have done.
As long as you keep the window wipers on. When rain builds up it'll be harder to see. (kinda like your eyes). When it comes to windshield, I believe less is more, that is, I like to use the wiper being used on the lowest setting comfortably possible. Since the camera is seeing the windshield through at an angle and with rain builds up it will make it hard to see.It looks like where you have it mounted actually works out pretty well. Even with the non-wiped part of the window showing in the photo, it seems that it doesn't block much since it is offset from center; only concern is if something comes at you from that right side, it may not be easy to make out details. What about in the rain, any issues there?
