A dashcam is an enticing buy and smart thing to have. It’s tough with so many no name brands popping up. Very sketchy market. (CarsofFortLangley)

At this point, new cars pretty much all have cameras installed in them, and backup cameras will soon be required by law. Heck, my own car has cameras all around for the 360 bird’s eye view thing. So why aren’t integrated “dash cams” offered as an option? Dash cams are becoming wildly popular, and I’m sure that buyers of at least premium cars would snap it up. It’d be a trivial thing to add and put a slot for another SD card in your dash or glove box. Then, we wouldn’t have to stick things to our wind shields and have 12V adapter cables dangling.
