    Strangely I never checked. So I just pulled my memory card and watched the video. Cars and scenery came in very clear, but plates not so much. I can see a plate on a car a few feet ahead of me while stopped, but cannot make them out on the cars passing by. Probably the camera, but I'm not sure what the resolution is on my 2012 macbook air.

    I run this one:
    https://www.amazon.com/Dashcam-Dashb.../dp/B07DF8MQX1

    It takes great pics...except for in low light whenever someone breaks into your vehicle, pulls it off the windshield, and somewhat passes by their face while they're in your back seat stealing your stuff. Or so I heard.

    Anyways, the videos are great while driving and it does pick up plates.

    Oh, and I have an extra one (NIB) and a 64GB memory card. Anyone who wants it is welcome to PM me with an offer.

    Edit to add: I bought one for the GF and then decided that convincing her that she needed it in her car wasn't worth the headache.

    I would suspect it's the camera. I've handled quite a bit of surveillance video over the years. 1080p/30fps should be good enough to catch the stationary plates but I don't think I've seen that resolution/frame rate pick up a plate on a moving car without a bit of tinkering.

    Noob, that looks perfect. Thanks for those pics. Does the screen stay lit up the whole time it’s on or recording?

    Austin, that one seems large and noticeable, I’d be afraid that would give someone a reason to break in in the first place.

    I have this in my XJ. Works great and adjusts well to all light settings even with a tinted shield. I wired it in to the ignition-on hot wire on my overhead console and hid all the wires within. Came out super clean and now I know everytime the key is turned it will be recording automatically.

    I got one of the amazon universal mount kits that clamp on the goose neck for the rear view mirror. The suction cups dont hold up to heat as well as a clamp. Also you cant use that on tint.

    I like guns because they're f*cking awesome.

    I like the idea of the clamp.
    It gets hot down here, I’m sure it could melt the adhesive on the sticky pad.

    How it looks on the computer. The video doesn’t actually look dark in the corners like this cell phone pic makes it look.

    It's not. You can't even see it from the outside. I have the top of it next to my rear view mirror behind my very dark tint line.

    The only visible part is the little camera lens sticking down.
