    Korean cameras like the Blackvue brand are "known good quality". Can't go wrong with those. Taiwanese ones are not bad either such as the Papago. Chinese cams you have to be careful with. The shells can be easily procured so stick with known good sources. Dashcamtalk.com will have links to every camera they review with different sources like amazon, ebay and aliexpress.

    here is a link from Aliexpress
    https://www.aliexpress.com/store/pro...ceBeautifyAB=0

    keep in mind they have a few version, 130 degree and 165 degree, the 165 degree one can do 1080p60fps as well (also 1296p @ 30fps) and also make sure you are buying an international version, otherwise, u will be reading simplified Chinese in the interface

    I’ll also be moving to where heat could be an issue. Do most people just leave them mounted? I also really like the low profile versions.

    You would want something with a capacitor rather than a lithium battery. Those don't expand with heat.

    x2 for the Yi here. Leave it installed 24/7 and videos are transferred via a WiFi connection. Super easy install I just added a 12v plug behind the glove box and ran the plug behind the headliner and a-pillar trim. Very stealth.

    I used to use capacity base Blueskysea G1WC, while i don't have to worry about the battery, the sensor is way better on the Yi since its a Sony sensor, my brother use the Yi in some hot Asian country, no problem so far
