    Hi everyone - I am looking for opinions on dash cams. Which are your favorite; what hasn't worked? The trucks are within a 100 mile radius but I still see the value in having these cameras. I'm not interested in paying a monthly subscription.

    Here is a night example of a Vantrue camera. I have had:
    G1W
    OldShark
    Zero Edge
    Vantrue which is the one I like best. I purchased all of mine through Amazon. Many users on here use Garmin and they do have a good image. They seam happy with them. I have points to use at two truckstops and will eventually end up using points to obtain a Garmin.

    Watch out for Vantrue. The one I have won't hold the date. Keeps reverting back to some incorrect date. This is a known problem. Maybe an update would fix it

    I found out after I bought my Vantrue that I'd have to buy an upgraded mount in order to see MPH. Do your homework. Wish I had lol
