Has anyone try to install any video camera on your 2014 accord? I want one to record the traffic situation while driving, just in case of accident, I could be able to justify myself if it's not my fault.

I was told I should be able to hide the wires inside of the frame but I don't know how to do that exactly on accord. I dont' want that device to visible and become appealing to somebody :).

Please advise?

I think digital might be a better route than VCR.

Have you looked into a gopro camera with a removable mount?

I don't want those removable ones as I have to take it off every time which is quite inconvenient. Not to mention the wires hanging in front of the window.

I know some can be attached to the rear mirror and have the wire hidden but just don't know how to do it.

I heard there are other types which are directly installed in the front grille which is even more invisible.

I have two dash cams, the Lukas LK-7900 ace and the DOD LS430W, installing them is very simple. You can find more info here. Personally, I like the DOD LS430W more than LK-7900 ace because it shows a more detailed picture.

Do you dismount it every time you leave the car?

For safety, I dismount them sometimes when I park my car at the mall or outside at night. It is your call really, I don't really like the mount for the Lukas lk-7900 ace but both dash cams aren't that easy to spot from outside looking into the car.

Not only in these cases. Sometimes there are funny and interesting situations on the road, you can share with the forum members, colleagues. Generally, it's useful.

It'll help you in all sorts of situations where potential fraud may put every asset you own on the line. It's better to protect yourself, as people get desperate and will try anything to screw you over for a buck.

If you have Tmobile and extra iphone laying around, you can get the 200Mb/month for free for that iphone w/o voice. Use it as a GPS tracking device. That's what I am planning to do. I just need to find a cheap iphone.

In some European country's insurance providers require a camera to be installed facing forward and backwards, and the ones that don't require it give you a discount if they are. Why doesn't the US adopt this? BS claims would be thrown out even if they did get rear ended :thmsup:
