    Budget Dual Cams:

    Just to complicate things a bit more: BlackVue 1CH dash cams can not be upgraded to 2 CH. They will lack the rear camera port, as the 1CH dash cams are physically different than the 2CH versions.

    Thinkware dash cams which have 1CH/2CH versions can be upgraded from 1 CH -> 2CH.

  • Thinkware FA200 WiFi ($130-190 USD) - Lacks IR cam, has Micro SD card option, Hardwire kit option.

  • BlackVue DR590W-2CH WiFi ($240-260 USD)

  • BlackVue DR590W-2CH IR WiFi ($280-300 USD)

    Look around for the best price. - Standard copy pasta.

This is why I'm glad I just picked up a dashcam.. Columbus idiots out in full force this morning...

Edit.. because some asked.. It's a VIOFO A119S with a Transcend 32gb card. Mounted to windshield.

I found it in the OP's thread that this is crossposted from, he said it was one of these:

I just bought mine from here Amazon Prime Link

u/sirernestshackleton · 9 pointsr/nova

I use this: https://www.amazon.com/VIOFO-A119S-DashCam-included-Novatek/dp/B01MFAK888

Tucked away behind my rear view mirror and automatically turns on when electronics turn on in my car. I have it plugged into USB though I might plug it into a fuse. I never think about it until I want to grab a video off of it.

/r/dashcam has good suggestions.

u/aiu_killer_tofu · 7 pointsr/cars

I have one of these wired to come on with the ignition. I've only had it in for a couple of months. Works great so far. I probably should have a rear facing camera too, but I figure front facing context is better than nothing at all.

Check out /r/dashcam for conversation about cameras and /r/roadcam for footage.

u/I_Love_McRibs · 6 pointsr/indianapolis

It's a Viofo A119S. It records 60fps @ 1080p. If you choose this model, make sure you get Version 2. The version 1 had problems with getting sufficient power from USB, causing GPS to not work and spontaneous reboots.

u/oldsock · 4 pointsr/IdiotsInCars
u/cspjohn · 3 pointsr/Dashcam

Sure, just search for Viofo A119V2. But here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01MFAK888/ref=mp_s_a_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1505078708&sr=8-1-fkmr0&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=viofo+119v2

I would go with eBay though (but I am not from the US) as you get one of the best warranties out there. Literally any issues? Full refund or a brand new one shipped. But I am biased, I had very good eBay experiences and Amazon service was always a bit more cumbersome.

Then again, that's just my experience. Good luck!
You will also need a "high endurance microsd card". I would go with 64gigs minimum, and just Google "high endurance microsd" and pick a brand you prefer. I went with Sandisk High Endurance. Basically cams write data all the time and normal SD cards die way too fast under them. Don't sweat, the price diff between high endurance and regular is pretty small.

u/coopdude · 3 pointsr/Dashcam

Viofo A119S V2. I had the V1 and used my credit card's extended return policy benefit on it due to issues with the GPS mount that were only fixed in the V2 (V1 pinout inconsistent/gets stuck, lead to movement in mount [movement of cam while driving] and power loss). I also have a CPL filter on it.

u/FortunateHominid · 3 pointsr/preppers

A119S. I did a lot of research when I purchased mine a few months back. IMO it's the best bang for the buck. Capacitor works better than batteries in the heat as well, which is a bonus in hot climates. You can plug into USB or purchase a hard wire kit which plugs into your fuse box (takes 10-20 minutes to install).

The GPS is worth it as well if you wish to verify location and speed. Can also be easily disabled if for some reason you don't want it showing, same with the mic.

Make sure to get a good micro SD card as well.

u/_Keo_ · 3 pointsr/Roadcam

Viofo A119s. It says at the bottom of the video ;)

I got this particular version as I think it has a Sony sensor which is better at night. It's done pretty well so far but the detail drops of pretty quick. You can only read plates up to about 2 car lengths. Still damn good for $100.

u/homegrowncountryboy · 3 pointsr/JusticeServed

Make sure you get a dash cam with GPS attached to it or built into the camera, I have this one and whats great about a GPS dash camera is it will have your speed but it also will always have the correct date and time since it always gets updated by the GPS.

u/kalmah · 2 pointsr/Edmonton

Haha no way I got the A119S too with the gps module that records your location and speed. It records audio very well too.
I bought it last August, worked fine in the winter when it was super cold out because it doesn't use a battery.

For storage I got a Transcend 32GB High Endurance microSD card. From the little research I did they cost a little more than a normal SD card but are better for dash cams and such.

I'm satisfied with the purchase myself for $158 total it was a very fair price and the quality is good enough at 1080 60fps, wide enough to see drivers next to you, catches enough light at night or during snow/rainstorms to see license plates I have no complaints. Would be nice to have one facing out the back now though in case someone rear ends you or something.

u/CrispyNip · 2 pointsr/vancouver

This one : https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B01MFAK888/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Just look up A119 and you will get a ton of info.

It was pretty affordable.

I did my research on sd cards too, make sure you get one that works for dashcams.

u/mouse1010 · 2 pointsr/Miata

I have one of these in both of my cars and they are great but make sure that you get the second version. The earlier version had problems with the gps mount loosing contact with the camera and caused it to power cycle. https://www.amazon.com/VIOFO-A119S-DashCam-Updated-Novatek/dp/B01MFAK888/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1501651592&sr=8-1&keywords=viofo+a119s

Which one do you have?

u/beth6han · 2 pointsr/Dashcam

Welcome, Saleroso. Nice to have you on board. You seem to have a pretty good understanding of dashcams, you certainly have picked out some of the most popular models. As it happens, I have the Viofo A 118C and the Viofo A119S models. Please note the name Viofo before the model number. Viofo is the manufacturer, so when you see the name with the product you can be reassured it's the real thing.

Since you want to remove the dashcam on a daily basis you can't go wrong with any of the models you listed. They remove very easily and I have been removing my Viofo A118C on a regular basis for over a year. It's a real workhorse, and has never let me down. I am not going to suggest you get that one because the newer models (A119 & A119S) have better quality components and produce better video.

I think you should buy The Viofo A119S Version 2 from the link that I am going to provide.

If you want to shop at another store these are the vendor that are considered reliable and trustworthy:

  • Viofo

  • Baikov

  • eStore009

  • BlueSkySea

  • FoxOffer

  • SpyTec

  • CaptureYourAction

    The GPS on the Viofo A119S Version 2 is optional so you will not order it.

    I don't think you need to buy any additional cables but you will need of course a memory card.

    Here is the link to the dashcam, and this shop ships worldwide. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MFAK888

    Good Luck.
u/dannymb87 · 2 pointsr/phoenix

I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/VIOFO-DashCam-included-IMX291-Novatek/dp/B01MFAK888?th=1

It's been through 1 summer and have had no issues.

u/Woddeh · 2 pointsr/Dashcam

When it comes to long wires, I come up broke. But the A119s is both discreet and has fantastic recording capabilities. However, you do pay a bit of a premium.

The Thinkware F50 again, is a premium camera. However you can rest assured that the video quality is going to be solid, the audio will be... acceptable (however this is typical of dash cams, they're all equipped with poor microphones) and it's relatively discreet.

The XiaoYi is a little cheaper still and offers what the other two contenders do, albeit sacrificing a little video quality.

Are these still too expensive? Then you need to look at a cheaper brand, such as Rexing or Vantrue. These products typically offer good protection, but the reliability, quality and customer support is typically not as great as the other three brands.

u/Sigma-42 · 1 pointr/dashcams

I recently purchased the VIOFO A119S for $120. I can't comment on durability at this time, but the installation and use is easy as pie. Clear picture, I have no issues seeing signs and license plates in the day or night-time.

u/qqg3 · 1 pointr/cars

Go buy this already: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MFAK888

u/fire_fune · 1 pointr/infiniti

>> which has very little visible in the windows so it doesn't ruin the look of the car

we are on the same track. 3 of the cars in my family are currently running blackvue 650 dualview. The image resolution and bitrate are not the best, nor their price. But I found it has high quality and slim body design. And I don't need a display on it as there is no need for it in my opinion.

For my current car, I have two VIOFO A119S one in front and one in back. First, their resolution and bitrate is very high, yet not the best. Second, they are only $100 a piece. Third, I didn't go single system dual setup is that all dual camera system sucks on the rear one. I found it equally important on the rear as the front. Forth, no longer need to run the power cable and video cable from the rear windshield all the way to the front. Last, it is designed so that to can still hide behind the rear view mirror even though it has a display.

If you choose one, don't forget to get the polarizing lens that designed for this camera.

amazon links (the price went up to $120 but still good)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MEI10I4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

btw, the difference between 119 and 119s is that 119 has wider view, but 119s has better low light image quality. I think both of them has already good enough viewing angle, so I went for 119s for better night image.

VIOFO A119S V2 Stock headlight on a 2002 civic. Would of been a bad day if I hit it!

u/Zowkaiii · 1 pointr/Dashcam

Alright, thanks again.

Can you see what the difference in this $120 A119S and this $100 A119S is? They seem nearly identical to me. They both have GPS, and they're even sold by the same company. The only difference I can see is that the cheaper one has "compact" in the title and looks curved near the camera.

A few more (hopefully final) questions: should I go for the CPL? Is this a good hardwire kit?

u/Sparkstalker · 1 pointr/rva

Just got one a month or so ago - a Viofo a119s. Nothing noteworthy has happened yet, but the quality is good from what I've reviewed. The shock sensor definitely works...it accidentally triggered when my wife was driving and got to the end of a repaving project.

u/noonches · 1 pointr/nova
u/sri745 · 1 pointr/Dashcam

This is a really noob question, but how do you hide the cables? I want to install one on my '17 Subaru, but that's the only thing stopping me from doing this. This is the dash cam I'm going to buy.

u/happypolychaetes · 1 pointr/legaladvice

Check out /r/dashcam and /r/roadcam for recommendations and tips (and videos!). I have this one and have been very happy with it so far.

u/Satsumomo · 1 pointr/mexico

Yo uso este: https://www.amazon.com/VIOFO-DashCam-included-IMX291-Novatek/dp/B01MFAK888

La razón principal para usar ese es que no trae batería. Para el pinche calorón que hace aquí en México, ya había comprado otro y terminó por inflarse la batería y pues eso es un riesgo muy cabrón de incendio en el coche.

El que puse trae un capacitor así que aunque pierda corriente, tiene suficiente tiempo para guardar el video y apagarse por sí solo. También es muy fácil de quitar/poner así que no siempre tiene que estar a la vista.

u/LordTekno · 1 pointr/Charleston

Viofo a119s. I've had mine for a year and so and it's amazing. 1080p with a good night mode. Easy to use.

Pricer, but good. 100% worth it.

You can get cheaper ones but it's worth the extra money to be headache free and just set-it-and-forget-it type of ownership.
