    I too have been looking for one for my vanpool van. Been leaning towards the Garmin 55 although the other riders think it's too expensive.

    Thinkware F800 here. The wifi to smartphone interface is useful for reviewing an incident but the startup notifications are a bit annoying. Video quality is excellent and helped alot when someone ran into me back in March. Will probably add a rear camera in the shell at some point soon, would have made it alot easier to catch the guy that hit me since he was in a rental vehicle and not the driver that rented it.

    You should throw the Rexing V1 on there. It seems to be a pretty popular lower-cost option and gets really good reviews. I'm between that and the Garmin 55...

    I will look into that one as well. I cannot justify the cost of the Garmin 55 for a vanpool van but would for my own personal vehicle.

    This “random” guy on reddit knows his stuff depending on your budget and what features you want.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Dashcam/comments/7vc5tf/best_dashcam_to_get_2018/

    The tricky part is for those of us with the full slide down rear window (I jammed a Yi in the corner, pics in one of our threads posted up). I’ve also seen some of us wedge a dashcam bracket in the overhead.

    OP is a n00b. Should have used re-directs instead of long links. :blahblah:

    Here is a write up with photos of the VIFO install on my 2015. (there are lots of guides like these on the forums for our trucks)

    I have the VIFO A119 and have been happy with it. I liked it so much I bought two, and installed on another of my DD's. i forget its there, nothing to fuss with. biggest draw back, no rear monitoring which prob is what matters the most.

    If I get a winch on my 2WD, can I overland with the BASTRDs and SGU?!
    Most of us are n00bs. :anonymous:

    Good job, [OP], asking what we all need to know! :rolleyes:

    To everyone using a Kenwood head unit, have you tried the Kenwood DRV-N520. I'm not interested in the forward collision, lane departure, and departure delay warnings, just how it works as an actual dash cam.
