Wondering if anyone can post a good deal/reasonably priced Dash Cam?
Am thinking of getting one. Thanks! :)

I wouldn't think it too hard to find one at a "reasonable" price. Internet searches are wonderful things and good luck.

What ever one you buy make sure you remove it from your dash when you park the car .the sun and heat will ruin the ll-ion battery inside

a side note , every one i bought on E-bay had a problem , some freeze up . the one i use now records sound for the first min of each 5 min clip, strange but i keep it because it's better than the one before that kept freezing up and the one before that ,that kept freezing up and the one before that ,that started smoking on the freeway @75mph , and the one before that, that the battery went bad because i never removed it from the dash

yes i know , i have a pile of dead ones , all from e-bay

Try googling dash cam.

Dash Cam

The one thing I would be concerned about is the mounting on the windshield. Some police will give you a ticket for that.
