You DO have a dashcam, right /o/?

Nextbase 312GW. Probably better ones out there, but it records and that's all I really need it for desu

Nope, my car is worth less than a dashcam, if I leave it unlocked its still there the following morning
>>
>>19424407
Take it out of the car when you park it? It's not that difficult
>>
>>19424414
that's a lot of work

Nah. Status as court evidence is still disputed. Insurance fraud is virtually a non-issue. Generally reasonable drivers; disputes or fantasy medical claims are rare. I'd buy one if I lived in a lying, cheating third world shithole like Russia or America.

Not yet but I have been thinking of getting one cause of all the stupid driver's I've seen and would love to share it with the world

I unironically hope you rear-end a suburban and get a trailer hitch through your chest.

Also Scosche magnet mounts are the only phone mounts worth using, anyone who doesn't have one get your goddamn shit together. And mount it anywhere but the windshield glass you degenerate cunts.

My company gave me a Rexing for the truck. Pretty cool and nice quality. Records sound and disconnects easily. Hooked it up to the wires that you use for a CB.

>>19424883

Jesus christ this. How the fuck do you see anything?

Also the scosche magnetics are the best mounts. Been using them for probably 5 years now.

so much asshurt in one post. the smartphone holder works great and I only have it up when I'm going on a long trip.

I used to work retail and whenever someone asked me for a phone mount I would go into full salesman mode about the magnetic ones. I have no problem shilling something that's actually good.

Dashcams can get you some good footage that you can share on the Internet later, like when a concrete truck barrels toward you [the truck did hit the car, but had lost enough momentum that it only smashed the front]

Good sir, I'm afraid I have to inform you that a high number of lying, cheating, subhuman shitskins have made their way into your residence area. I strongly advice ethnically cleansing them but until then I suggest you purchase and install a dashcam for your personal safety.

I agree that the big crappy phone mounts most people use are garbage, but I would recommend gravity x mounts (pic related). easy in/out, stays in place, works with any phone and doesn't require an extra magnet thing

Once upon a time I was of the mind
To lay your burden down
And leave you where you stood
And you believed I could
You'd seen it done before
I could read your thoughts
Tell you what you saw
And never say a word
Now all that is gone
Over with and done, never to return
I can tell you why
People die alone
I can tell you I'm
A shadow on the sun
Staring at the loss
Looking for a cause
And never really sure
Nothing but a hole
To live without a soul
And nothing to be learned
I can tell you why
People go insane
I can show you how
You could do the same
I can tell you why
The end will never come
I can tell you I'm
A shadow on the sun
Shapes of every size
Move behind my eyes
Doors inside my head
Bolted from within
Every drop of flame
Lights a candle in
Memory of the one
Who lives inside my skin
I can tell you why
People go insane
I can show you how
You could do the same
I can tell you why
The end will never come
I can tell you I'm
A shadow on the sun
Shadow on the sun, shadow on the sun
Shadow on the sun, shadow on the sun
Shadow on the sun, shadow on the sun
Shadow on the sun, shadow on the sun
Sun, sun

after some faggot road crew parked their truck in the passing lane on a corner of I-5 I'm getting one

>nobody was in the truck
>the hazard lights on the truck weren't turned on
>there was no signage on the highway warning of this
>forced cars to slam on their brakes because you couldn't see it until you rounded the corner
>>
>>19426873
>recommend gravity x mounts
I don't like anything that puts force on the glass front. If something firmly touched the phone with a downward motion, there would be a pressure spike on the glass.
>>
>>19424953
Really doubt it's legal having all that shit obstructing your FOV.
>>
>>19428386

honestly it'll just fall out before you put enough pressure on it to do any damage. there's plenty of padding on both sides touching the phone, and although it stays in pretty well, it's really loosely hanging. You'd have to deliberately push hard on it, and even then the adhesive holding it to the dash would probably go first.
>>
can't you just use your phone?
>>
>>19424398
yes, it's great as a new driver if any cunt tries to blame me, but it sucks as it's got GPS so it kinda shows that i've got a heavy foot.

>>19424398

>>19424398
No but the only accident I've ever been in I was at fault anyway so it wouldn't have helped me.

The one where people still have privacy rights even in public and can't be recorded in their movement for no good reason.
