The Sunday Times Driving section last Sunday gave an excellent review for: http://www.nextbase.co.uk/products/iN%252dCAR-CAM™-402%252dG-Professional.html

I am not too sure how you could fit one to my T31, as the recommended position behind the mirror does not have a clear view due to the 'hatched' area of glass and some sort of sensor. (I am guessing the rain sensor?).

Then how would you get the power supply to the cigarette lighter socket? :confused:

wiring into the roof then down the A pillar to the fusebox by the right knee,

mine was a 12 volt camera so tapped into the brakelight fuse with a piggy back adapter
and cut off the cig lighter part, but this will not work on the adapter that drops
it to 5 volts,

Have you considered the Mio MiVue 538D Deluxe?
You get the SD card with it and lifetime safety camera alerts.

Getting 12.5% off Swiftcover insurance makes the iN-CAR CAM™ 302-G Deluxe an even more attractive proposition.. :thumbs:

Hi,
Just to let you know that a number of our insurance schemes offer discounts for a wide range of approved in-car cameras.
Regards,
Dan.

If insurance company's are giving discounts then why aren't car manufacturers fitting them as standard (or are they). The/T32 comes with something like 6 cameras and I would have thought that one of the front ones could be configured to record to an SD card without to much trouble.

Or is this just another way of insurance company's bumping up the premium if you don't have one :headbang:

Best regards
Milton :biggrin:

Dan, you are quick to pop up with these 'exclusive offers' but very elusive when you are asked a simple question?

Apart from the day you wake up and forget to switch it on or the fuse goes and sods law says thats when it will happen :bigcry:

I think they are great, but as always insurance will find a way to get out of paying up

As for Adrian Flux I am still awaiting a call back after speaking to an adviser from last Oct!

and if the camera happens to be faulty at the time and not record the incident,
will this be an excuse for not paying out, ?.

EDIT, should read fully, before replying, :biggrin:
