Default Dash cam

I drive about 40,000 miles a year. Have had a few close calls that would be questionable who is at fault unless there was proof. Anyone have a recommendation for a dash cam around $100ish. I was at target yesterday and saw a cobra for about that. Thoughts?

G1W is a decent cam for under $100. If you don't need features like parking mode it'll do the trick. I have a Blackvue and have caught a person hit and run my car while parked, I'll always have one in every car I own now.

I have had one for about a year and had several close calls that it would have been very helpful in proving the other person was at fault.

A couple of weeks ago I was driving behind a car on the highway in the left lane that swerved for no reason into a jeep driven by a teenager in the middle lane. The car that swerved went sideways into the tree and the jeep side swiped a tree that ripped off his rear wheel. The female who was driving the car that caused the accident ended up having internal injuries and was taken to a hospital.

I stopped to help while waiting for the paramedics. Afterwards the police asked for a witness statement so I just got my laptop and memory card from the dash cam and played it for the cops. Both cops said they wish everyone had a dash cam and had no problem seeing who caused the accident. They downloaded the video onto the laptop in the police cruiser for the case. I sent the video to the parents of the teenager in the Jeep and they later told me that it helped get a full replacement cost for the Jeep.

I'll always have a dash cam in my car. I have the gw-1c dash cam from amazon. I has a capacitor instead of a battery so the battery doesn't get fried in the sun.
