    Looking to buy a dashcam.. Like to have night vision and be able to download it to my iPhone when I need to. Any help would be great. Want good input before I buy one.

    Night vision? How often will you be driving without your headlights at night?

    I have a vicovation, sp?, dashcam and I like it. Was a gift, so I really don't know much about it....but does have a nice picture

    Cobra with wifi. GoPro with wifi. Chinese knockoffs with wifi. All the wifi dashcams I've seen have iPhone apps so just look for one with wifi. They use a direct wifi link so you don't need a router

    i'm not in the market for a cam so i haven't been looking at the market.

    do they not come with bluetooth?

    there's been talks of what everyone is buying but as for night vision. don't think i've seen a review for any specific model yet.

    I don't recall any with bluetooth.

    As far as the night vision, some have the infrared lights around the lense, however wen they come on you get a bad reflection off the windshield. Most are decent with the headlights but you will never see nightvision quality unless you pay night vision prices.
