.....$60 worth car camera can do the job liao. got g-sensor, motion sensor all. enough already....
Agreed. Recent Xiaoyi car cam is as good. Can connect via WiFi too. Less then S$90 and easy enough to self install.

an accessories shop in jb quited me iroad, 2ch at like 900rm with installation. cant remember its v7 or something. seems like its quite worth it?
you have to check with them whether the installation include the 24/7 recording one. They will be another step in the installation process for those done in sg and of course it will cost more.

Last pricing I saw online was $568 for the Thinkware F750 front and rear camera +installation.

Is this still valid? Anyone know of a reliable installer?

Online reviews seem to point to ZMC Automotive. Appreciate any advice you guys might have.

Thanks for the introduction. Just called them and they are quoting $658 for the F750 front and rear, including installation.

Seems a bit pricey based on the other quotes on the forum.

Got another quote for the Thinkware F750 front and rear. SGD 700 including GST and installation and a 64GB memory card.

Anyone know if the price quote during the recent promotion ($568) includes a memory card?

dashcam with parking mode

HI

Can someone share their experience using dashcam with parking mode for 24/7 ?

I am trying to get a dash cam for my car.Most important is that it can support 24/7 during
parking mode.

It seem that most is using Blackvue, Iroad and Thinkware. It either connect directly to
your car battery or use an external battery.

I see some post that both method is bad for your car battery and it will shorten the
life of your battery to less than 6 month. Is this truth?

Another problem is that your cam running 24/7 will not last more than 1 year?

My friend also advise the cam need to does at least 64G memory because
resolution today is high and it cannot record 24hr with 32G memory.

I am not sure how truth is all the above?

Can someone share their experience what car camera you using for 24/7 parking mode?

This is my first time buying dash cam and not much experience.

Thanks

Ken

I'm looking into these as well. Hard to find information and data on this. I have to point out that, if using external battery like Cellink, I think it does not touch the car battery. But to spend $200 to $300 for external battery, I am tempted to just test the limits I am comfortable with and if needed, just change car battery should be same or cheaper?

Any advice on these thoughts very much welcome.

Newbie here too

i am also thinking of using external battery to connect to parking mode, but i see the speed my phone is being charge up inside my car, i don't think the external battery will be charge up alot unless you drive like 45mins a trip?

Anyone using external battery can share your experience?
