Still going through the insurance process.
The Dashcam model I got was http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HMN ... _pC_nS_ttl
When you receive it, make sure you the recordings are recorded as .MOV files. I previously ordered from another vendor what I thought was a high-quality camera, but it turns out they were selling older generation internals, which recorded AVI files. The quality was far worse and blurry. I know that .MOV and .AVI are just video file containers and aren't indicative of video quality, but it is an easy way to clue in on the chip included in the DVR.
Mine has been performing flawlessly.
I also got some additional pieces to make the camera appear less visible.
I used these clips to clip the cable running from the rear view mirror against the top of the windshield. I place a few of these directly on the windshield and also near the power supply unit.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SLJ ... _pC_nS_ttl
I used this USB cable instead of the included cable. More than a few of my friends who bought DVRs for their cars stop using them because they rather charge their smartphones. Why not both? I use this cable along with a dual port USB charger so you can plug both the DVR AND a smartphone into a power supply. Just get any that provides at least 2.4 amps.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007NL ... _pC_nS_ttl
Lastly, you can use the included suction cup, but I recommend this mirror mount which reduces the footprint of the DVR. This particular mount fits the DVR perfectly and doesn't leave an unsightly suction print from the outside of the car.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JWG ... _pC_nS_ttl
