Those Nextbase cameras are very popular,
But I find them a bit on the big side and a bit intrusive.
I bought a well regarded mini cam on Ebay and you could hardly see it from the outside,
No screen to distract me either, it just sits there doing what it is supposed to do.

Bought mine in Halfords and had it fitted by the Bedford branch. Great service and no issues.

I have a Mini 0801 in my current car, sometimes called a Bullet, it’s been really good, it’s so discreet I can leave it in the car, picture quality is 1080p , night time video is excellent, I paid £80 for it 5years ago. I was thinking of having Halfords fit a Nextbase 512 (I think that’s the right number), into the Ateca, which.co.uk rates Nextbase camera as best buys and I have good things about Halfords installations on more than one occasion.

I had an 0803 for years, It was great while it worked, but sadly it would only record at times so decided it was time to replace it with the one linked above.

Someone told me that if you have a dash cam and you have told your insurance company, if you were involved in an incident and your camera wasn't on or attached the insurance company won't cover you because they always expect the cam to be attached and switched on.

It sound like a complete load of boll&%ks to me.

If they gave you a discount because you had one fitted, that could apply. It's the same with house insurance if you fit an alarm and get a discount.

Best not to bother to tell them as it is not a significant modification. You wouldnt tell them if you stuck your phone in a holder to use as a satnav.
