Default Dashboard Cameras?

Anyone running a dashboard camera? You can get these pretty cheap these days:

Just wondering if this is a thing yet. From what I've heard, in Russia it's very common.

I have a friend running that one and he really likes it. I opted to go with the Mobius due to its smaller physical size. Even with the battery instead of the capacitor installed its been working well on my trip. FWIW.

I'm amazed these haven't already taken off within the club. (if they have, nobody seems to chat about it). Not only does it make sense for the legal end on the road, but if you can pop a chip out at the end of each trail ride, you would have pretty awesome video captures of all the runs. Everybody complains about gopro battery life, but if it's plugged in all the time, doesn't it negate that issue?
Seems like one of the cheapie gopros off clist, or even the new lowest level hero, would work pretty well for this.


There are some guys on the Porsche forum that use dashcams that have integrated GPS & G meters on them too. Bitchin. They will even turn on and start recording while parked if they sense vibration or movement around them. Couple guys caught trolls messing with their cars.

Oh, and dedicated forum to that junk: https://dashcamtalk.com/
