Progress report on the POV by MobileSpec. As I mentioned previously it was blowing fuses in the included power adapter(the in vehicle one). It was only two fuses and hasn't blown another one since. After the second one blew I took a while to scroll through the on screen menu and discovered a "Frequency" setting. It was a choice of 50hz or 60hz and was on the default of 50hz. I set it to 60hz and haven't blown a fuse since, is it possible that the 50hz setting was causing fuses to blow in the in-vehicle charger? Other than this little glitch this has been a very cool accessory.

A very useful comparison of dashboard cameras (in German)

Mentioned here.
(Almost) all models can be found on ebay.

Since I have a dash-mount for my smartphone (Nexus 5), I've been using CaroO Pro as a dashcam app. I also got a Bluetooth OBD-II device so CaroO can get the diagnostic data for my car.

It was a fun little project. The primary downside is I wish those videos could be tagged in such a way that Google+ would ignore them and not make stories about my drive home, etc.

As far as I know there are options in market which are easy to install and can be bought online.
One good option is Garmin Dash Cam TM 20 Standalone and other is PAPAGO GS11-US Dash Cam GoSafe from PAPAGO. These dash cams cost around CAD$150-$200

And there are several benefits of installing a dash cam like:-
1. Dashcam Can Prove of Value within Court
2. Dash Cams Can Decrease Your Insurance Premiums
3. Safeguard You From Insurance Scams
4. Provides undeniable footage proof and also works as a silent witness in the event of an accident
5. Produces a good defense from hit-and-run and theft
6. Provides GPS monitoring with vehicle speed (if equipped).
7. Minimizes the time to resolve a claim by the court of law or by the insurance company.
8. Has been proven to enhance a driver's driving behavior.
9. Provides employers with security that employees are following company rules when driving fleet vehicles.

This is 2019 and a lot of these dash cams have been produced and upgraded. People now see the benefits. If you looking to install one, you should go for Blackvue Pro or Thinkware F770. I use Blackvue DR550, but the latest version in the market is Blackvue DR750S-2Ch. The cost is around $300 on amazon, you'll love its features. The App is excellent.
