Default Dash Cam

I was wondering if anyone is running a Dash Cam in their car. I was in the market for one and wanted to hard wire it through the ignition switch.

The features I'm looking for are size (smaller the better), good resolution / video quality and has a good motion detection for security purposes.

I was looking at Aukey dash cam since it has really good reviews and seem like the video quality is very good. But my main concern is that the motion detection only works if the cars accessory ports work without the car being on since it doesnt have an internal battery. Any suggestions would be useful.

I linked a review of the Aukey Dash just incase.

This is by far the best Dash Cam available out there at this time. If you read the information you will understand why.

I was looking at the owl cam but for me obstructing the window like that is unappealing to me.

Did you wire it up yourself?

Do you recall which are ignition positve and negative wires?

I am wanting to wire a camera and a detector to it.

Get a BlackVue front/rear camera, best dual cam setup and it already paid for itself.

I know these are available in Canada. Would anyone know if they are available for our LC's here in the US?

2) how often will the battery die if set @ 12.5V
