    Dash-Cam

    My wife and I have been wanting to get a dash-cam for her car for quite a while now.

    Does anybody know of a decent one for a pretty low price, we don't have a lot to spend at the moment.

    I think everyone should have one in their car. When you have no witnesses it's your word against the other persons word unless you have some form of proof.

    Another reason is we see a lot of crazy stuff when we're driving, I wouldn't mind capturing it on film :)

    If you already have a smart phone like a Droid, you can download an app like Daily Roads Voyager. Just need a dash mount for your phone. Download is free.

    That's not a bad idea. We each have a droid 2, and we are about to switch phone companies in a month and get new phones. Can it still be used if you don't have any service on your phone?

    Yes, still works with no service. It's just like the camcorder feature being internal. The videos are saved and you can upload them to their upload server right from the phone too when you do get in service that is. There's all sorts of settings that you'll want to go through but one thing I like is the GPS coordinates and vehicle speed that is also recorded and shown on playback. The screen looks just like on that first page in the link.

    Something like what Harryball posted may be better depending on the memory that those have. I don't have any experience with those. And there may be a setting that I haven't tried too hard to find but it will record your video in 30 sec. clips. (yes clips, not magazines) I think you can set them for different times like up to a min / clip but I can't remember.

    If you want to double your investment you can give this a try but it requires you reset every 4.75 hrs of record time. I quite enjoy it.

    New Toy Doubles as Excellent Dash Cam

    ETA: Since I posted the original GoPro has released their Wi-Fi back pack. You can control up to 50 cameras, watch and stream live. SO where ever you have smart phone you can stream. So one option could be to stream the dash video bag to larger storage... testing would be required.
