    With a recent spate of rash and aggressive driving here, I am inclined to install a Dash Cam to record any untoward or unfortunate accident that could occur with me. Or for that matter, record some awesome videos of me drifting into corners.

    Requirements -

    - Should be able to withstand the high temps. I will try and keep it inside the glovebox whenever possible, however temps will still reach 65 Deg c + inside.

    - Mounting should be easy and durable - Easy for quick installation/removal, Durable to handle the heat

    - Should have 2 Cameras/Lens - Front and rear video ability.

    - Wide field view.

    - Value for Money and not too expensive - Since I'll be buying two of these, one for each car.

    Thanks in advance!

    Already did, he's super busy with some work and not online much. I'm seeing a lot of these on ebay going for about 40$ each, however their recording ability is equally shady. I need something that'll last a daily grind for 2-3 years.

    A dual view records rear and front video simultaneously. So that in the event you have to brake suddenly because the car in front did, and you manage to stop well in time but the person behind you crashes into you, it's his mistake.

    Well TBH, due shortage of funds, purchase has been put on hold.

    I was initially interested in the Blackvue DR550 Dual Channel (Best current HD Dash cam out there), but got put off by one flaw only. Unproven high temperature durability. It would stand 60-65 Degrees easily, but temps here (car interior) go 75 easy.

    So there is one made by a Korean Company Lukas that can withstand 75 degrees easy and has a shut off temperature of 80 degrees

    It's going to be this one, but since I need 2, I'm still searching for something cheaper.

    An el-cheapo though good option is the GS8000L recommended heavily online.
