    Default In-car camera, advice and recommendations?

    Hi, I'm planning of getting one and thinking of spending not more than $300.

    Any good models I should consider and what other factors do I also need to consider?

    Sorry for the newbie questions cos I'm relatively new to all these ...

    Thanks in advance!

    Most importantly must be 1080p resolution recording at 1000 Frames Per Second (FPS).

    Or you can simply use one one the many free Android apps such as MyCar Recorder Lite, DailyRoads Voyager etc. etc together with a car kit or car mount.

    iOS should have similar apps also.

    Some of the features, day n night colour recording, inside and outside view recording, motion detection auto recording. Autobacs, Giant @ Tampines, petrol station, IT show, downtown east carpark car wash etc are the places I saw selling ranging from $90 to $300. Prices drop a lot recently 120-200 get get a very good spec recorder now.

    Go for HD (1080p) if possible, currently mine is VGA with front and back camera but serve the purpose if only I am close enough to the vehicle.
    GPS is a nice to have but not crucial to have if you are not going to spend more than $300.

    A good place to read on is mycarforum, look for "In Car Recorder" and you get your all questions answered there
