Yup! and a good 'un will record speed, time, GPS position etc.

Following a 'near miss' on Saturday and after checking out Pikey's link I've just bought one of these bad boys which is apparently the upgraded version of the DOD430W that's no longer stocked. Bring it on motherf.....

Looking for a recommend for a D-cam for the F-in-Law. Simple to use and robust would be good. Cheers
