    Yes they are mate. You need to make sure that you abide by the highway code rules for making sure that your visibility isn't impaired when mounting the camera - like for instance on your windscreen.

    I have 2 of these fella. One mounted in the front, and another yet to be mounted in the rear.
    There are others with a lot more sophistication (GPS inbuilt etc) but for around £10-£12 and able to record on an SD card up to 32gb, they are cheap enough to have them all over your car lol

    These are the cameras I have, not bad at all for the price, I never bought them from this seller, I paid a set price rather than auction.

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : Z19DTH

    these are the ones to go for, just plug it into the cig lighter or a permanent ignition live and it records away... For what they cost ive been giving it some serious thought

    Thats the same as the one I have and I'm really pleased with it. Mounts just behind the rear view mirror on the passenger side and ive run the power lead behind all the pillar trims and glovebox to the cigarette lighter.
    Only critcism I have with it is the zoom on startup is a bit far out for my liking but it can be adjusted. The sound quality and resolution is spot on though.

    Does it auto record with the ignition when it's in the cig /aux socket ?

    Have you had to buy a bigger memory card ?

    I havn't unpacked it yet and read the de-structions , Can you tell , L.O.L.
