I just heard today on the show that you already purchased a new dash cam, however for anyone else that stumbles upon this thread I’d like to recommend Wheel Witness brand.
WheelWitness HD PRO Dash Cam with GPS - 2K Super HD - 170° Lens - 16GB microSD - Advanced Driver Assistance - For 12V Cars & Trucks - Night Vision Dashboard Camera Ambarella A7LA50 Car Security DVR https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OTZWJE2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_O1aZzbBH8RP10
I bought this one on sale from newegg about 6-8 months ago and haven’t been disappointed. The company even sent me a free 64gb micro sd card for an honest review on amazon after I had the cam for a couple weeks. High definition record has the clarity to read license plates which was a major factor for me. Night vision is also great. That specific model doesn’t have super fancy features but the wide angle lens captures 170 degrees and also has a gps dongle that can be used to record location as well as speed imbedded into the video. Overall great so far and plenty durable considering it fell at least twice while trying to remove my windshield sunscreen. Sorry about the format of the link if it came out bad I don’t computer at optimum efficiency!
