Looking for a dash cam. Any recommendations?

I'm looking for a decent das cam for under $100.
I was thinking of this one


If I could get one with a backup cam, even better.

Any suggestions?

That's extremely helpful. I imagine you're the idiot that downvoted the thread?

I have two of these (my car and wife), as well as two more used by family (parents):

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01LXLCWYF/

It goes on sale often, I've never paid more than $80. I'm sure it'll be on sale again around Black Friday.

I know there are ones with better quality, but this one is still 1080 with wide angle, it's pretty small (about 2x2"), it has a screen so you can easily change settings directly on the camera and aim it better, and it's a capacitor version so can be used year round in hot/cold weather without issue. Has an easy button as well to save certain clips manually if you see something, as well as motion detection if you're in an accident.

Also very easy to set up. Insert the SD card, format it (you'll get a prompt), set the date/time and whatever other settings you want (eg you can have audio on/off, motion senitivity, length of clips at 3/5/10 minutes, etc), and you're good.

Also includes suction cup or adhesive patch, and adhesive clips for where you can't tuck the cord into the vehicle interior (eg around windshield or running it under the glove compartment).

These things always go on sale during Black Friday so I would wait a few weeks if you can.
