    These mainland 4 wheelers get more crazy by the day.

    I'm thinking of saving my ### and buying a dash cam, but there's about a million of them out there.

    Does anyone currently have one with audio/night vision?

    One that can read license plates without pixels would be ideal.

    I've been thinking of the same thing... isn't "Gopro" the standard?

    Yeah from what I've been reading that might be the best choice... Very good quality but expensive..

    Here is an up to date (ish) list. GoPro is not your goto option. You want good night recording if you want an accurate record.

    Don't recommend the GoPro. Whatever you get make sure it is 1080P.

    Look at the dieselboss site and look at the db4. He has posted some of the pictures from it.

    I like mine. I bought it with the 32 gig card and bought a spare 32 gig card.

    I have MIO Mivue 358, its 1080p. Can read plates with no issues. Came with a 16gb card.
