  1. At we see a lot of people coming in with bumper problems due to reversing so this is a great aspect for cars along with sensors, suppose it is down to the indivual on what they can afford and prefer best. Great post though.

    That is an application for which it could be used, there is however points to be taken into account such as what size storage you require, this is determined by how often you wish to back up your recorfings.

    • Agreed, it is down to the individual to decide what suites their budget.

    Sensors are better. I recently spent nearly two months driving a car with cameras, they give no indication of distance. I’d say they’re only good for detecting pedestrians.

    • It is personal preference, the better cameras will have a distance scale built in.

  8. If you can record even when it’s not on the screen, then you can potentially give yourself proof in case of an accident, theft, or anything really! That is pretty cool, I must say.

    I am not great at reversing/backing up whenever I park my car so this is going to be very useful. This is perfect because I use the exact same model, Nissan 350. Thank you so much for this.
