    I would get this one again(Auto-Vox A118C) since that it has a cover for the wires. Pretty much the same as the Apemen camera. No back camera though.

    If you wanted to get all angles then you would have to get a camera for every window. I found for the cost of that it's not worth it, even if the camera's were cheap. The back camera quality isn't that great but I didn't have any expectations of it either. A lot of back camera's(like mine) had holes so you could drill. No way I was doing that. The thing is that the body of the car sits higher with black stuff(not sure what it's called) around the window. There was a small gap between the top, back of the window and the body so I had to put something in there to make the camera lower to see out the window and not be covered by the black stuff. If you get close enough to the back you can clearly see I have a camera. If you're going to coming that close to my car, car or person then more likely then not you're not suppose to be there.

    I did spot this Micra behind me today. I think a guy in a truck seen the camera and rod my ass because he thought it was funny, or he had somewhere important to be. Either way, not cool.

    i feel naked if i dont have a dashcam. and it is not that hard to install, you dont have to remove the a pillar covers, just "push" the wire into the gap between the windshield and the a pillar cover. i did hardwire mine by tapping into cigarette lighter, but you could just run a adapter into the lighter (a bit unsightly... a cigarette lighter plug).

    PS above link deosnt work ?

    I have one of those dual 12v plug-ins with usb-plugs. I find that it's okay, I found that a lot of time the it doesn't always connect.
