What are the thoughts on this?

Anything I would need to know if I did something similar?

You can but these cheap now on ebay, and could just run it off the lighter and either place it on the dash like a sat nav or run the wire under the gator to the back box like your post, 10 minute job if even

what a great idea wish i had of had that two years ago when a guy in van tried to make it to exit off round about at same time as me. ended up I hit the side of him he was at fault he gets out van and says he was in front of me. I said well then how is the damage on side of your van. gaurds came made us move the cars. would not mind few weeks later adds on tv show how to use round abouts correctly you prob seen it. insurnace quinn made us both pay our own but i was in right gaurd even said it.gaurd told him he had no right bing where he was unless he was going right. I am thinking of using phone as car cam on craddle.the only problem I can see with the cam in the images above is having to screw things in to panels. suppose you could mount it some other way. great idea.

Yeh i got one last year off ebay, think it cost me €40 & about a tenner delivery, it recorded in 5 minute takes and you can put as big as 32gb sd card into it so would in theory recorded non stop for about 10hours before it starte dlooping over the old footage, would turn off 30 seconds after you tunr you car off and it had Night vision aswell! but I must off dropped it at some stage and it was constantly on night vision, it still recorded fine but the tree etc looked pink, I'd say you could get them cheaper now

mind you handing the gaurds a usb key with video of some local scumbarero,they prob already know, would be as useful as an ashtray on bicycle. they seemed not too impressed, last time I called them out when again the streeing lock and dash where damaged.
I do like the idea a friend of mine had, of putting on his seat everynight after leaving his car a piece of wood with rusty nail. But i just know that after heavy session I would end up giving myself a second ass hole some morning.

I have not seen one, but I like those hidden cameras that the American police use to trap car thieves, they must be really small. That way you know what the scumbag looks like IF you get your car back.
