Default Dash Cams

Looking for a one stop shop for advice and fitting of a dash cam front and rear cameras in a T6 California in or around Bristol. So damned many to pick from and I want a good one and a careful wired in fit. Any ideas?

After much looking around I have opted for a Thinkware F750 rather than F770 as I don't need / want the the rear camera that would interfere with the rear window blind.

The system seems to offer the features I want including the ability to video the journey and download to iPad / iPhone.

Jason @ Absolut5 is going to hard wire it in for me when he does the ICE.

Thanks! Great review.

Friend of mine has recently done a hard wire install front and rear so will have a look. His is in a T6 Cali and I believe he's mounted camera on cupboard in rear to avoid issue with the blind.

Thanks for all the information which has kept me entertained for the afternoon.
Very impressed by the quality of your reviews and given me much to think about.
Still hankering after the Thinkware F770 for its dual camera and was wondering if you have done a review on it. Couldn't find it with a search.
I'll keep an eye on your site for updates

Its not my site I just thought you might be interested in the reviews that guy does, theyre about the best there are and if nothing else theyll help you learn what you need to expect from a dashcam.
