    Thanks

    How is your rating now that you've used it a while, whats you opinion!

    I also am looking at the Thinkware 800 because I like that the Thinkware and Blackvue both have the front and rear cams. I also like the Garmin 55 but it only has the front cam!

    Thanks brother!

    Yeah, you need 2 channels. I like the compact size of the Blackvue. The video quality is pretty good. Their firmware can be buggy so I learned not to upgrade unless I have to. Overall I'm happy with it and would recommend it. I would buy the DR900s that you mentioned if this one died. This is their latest model so I would not be in a hurry to buy it though. Wait a little bit and let them work out some of the bugs first.

    How are you guys mounting the rear camera?

    The camera came with sticky tape so that's what I used. My truck has a shell so I just mount it to the rear hatch. For the Tundra with roll-down rear window that would not work though. Probably need to mount to the roof somehow.

    I’ve been wanting to get a 2channel dash cam but I’m still trying to figure out a way to mount the rear cam.

    Ive used there dash cams for the last few years really happy with them. I like that I can remote into my dash cam from inside my house if I hear something outside. I have mine hardwired to stay on all the time. The only issue I have had is after 4 days it will run your battery dead if you do not drive the vehicle.

    This dash cam is out of stock and unavailable. Seems like there's already issues with it? Or just supply?

    After all the research that I've done, I still went with the cheaper brands. Seemed like Blackvue was all hype

    Does anybody have a good location to mount the front cam that doesn't interfere with all the stuff up by the front mirror?
