Default Anyone with car video camera

Looking for more security for the F. Any good video camera that alerts you on your phone. I found one by owlcam.com pricey about $349. One year is about $99.

Oh yeah, I had a thinkware cam before this and like the owl better. I park in a parking garage at work, and depending on how fast the other car is moving. Youíll almost always get a ďpossible damage/bump alertĒ. No hidden fees, unless itstime to renew. First year of cellular is included. Picture quality is supurb. You might read reviews of ppl complaining about how loud it is, I donít care as I usually have music playing loud enough to cover the fan noise. Another comapliant I read was always looking for cell connection, I live in Austin, TX and no prob there.

Why not get a regular dash cam and save your videos on an xd card? Been running a streetguardian, 1080p for 3 years now. Works wonders.

Here in US they don’t have the OEM dash cam for purchase. I’m looking for a video camera where you can check on the car anytime by phone on video when the car is parked. Also that has motion detection. Thank you for help.

Anyone check out BlackVue? They seem to be nice as well. Wondering how hard the install would be. Is it as simple as just tapping the power in the rear view mirror?
