I understand the video card is filled it automatically re-writes starting with the oldest recorded first.

My question is, if you wanted to keep something that was recorded. Can you transfer it to a computer or iPad for future viewing?

The one I linked to earlier does have GPS, and it has a removable card that you can use their software to make a video or you can just view like any video. you can set the length of the recording before it starts a new one (3 or 6 minutes) etc, very nice.

Thanks for your information.
That is similar to the one I have. I do have the GPS add on.
The problem is how it mounts to the flat rv window. The lens points down as it won't go 90 degrees.
If you decide on this make sure you go with the capacitor one as the battery one has had issues with the heat on the windshield.
I do like the video quality and the gps features is neat if you like that stuff

Hi Kenn209,

I just watched a video on the KDLINKS X1 and it looks like a good unit. One thing I like about the Viofo A119 is you can move the viewing aperture.

Lakebuster, you posted "mounted low on drivers side window. Catches side mirror and all of the front." Does anyone else do that? I've always pictured it in the middle of the windshield.

"WyoFree"......You can spend from $40.00 to $400.00 on a dash cam. You need to decide what features YOU want and are willing to pay for.

You can buy one that just video tapes and rewrites over the old footage after a certain time. You can buy one that adds GPS to the signature, verifying where an incident occurred. You can buy one that sense an impact and saves that portion of the recording.

Lastly, you can buy one that films in poor quality video, up to HD video.

I felt that if I was going to buy a dash cam, I wanted one that filmed in HD, so while driving through a National Park, I could save a high quality video of the drive. I bought a larger SD card so mine would record for 8 hours before writing over the older video.

I wanted a GPS unit that identified where I was at and what speed I was going when/if an accident occurred.

So.....you need to decide what things are important to you. Each item boosts the cost. I bought a DOD brand and it fits nicely in the lower left corner of my windshield. I ran the power cable into the side of the dash and to a keyed power source. I bought a spare cable that I mounted in my daily driver. I move the camera when not camping.
