I went with the Panorama X2 (front and back cam). I did a little research and found this to be one of the best for video quality and features. Cant wait to get her installed, ill post some pics when its done!

I've owned a Lukas for well over 3 years but they just keep coming out with tweaks and new models. They keep things at that $300 price tag. I said no thanks and bout 2 KDLinks X-1. They have amazing lenses for dim, stormy weather and bad lighting. I've been impressed that they are made in USA and have Mac and PC software. The Chinese importers tried to scare people about a battery problem they had on initial release last year but they redid the whole camera late Winter of 2015. It only effected people in really hot climates. Dash cameras are great. I've caught so much bad driving on video. It helps track your driving too. I hope you enjoy your panorama.

Getting the dash camera was the absolute best after having a deer jump over the center concrete divider on the NY state thruway at 2am on the way home from a mini-vacation. Luckily covered by comprehensive I had State Farm previously that would try to say that it should be under collision. I have since switched out the sport sedan for a Jeep Grand Cherokee but have dash cameras working in all of the cars. Now when something crazy is caught in video I don't hesitate to pull the SS card and upload the video. Amazing what crazy stuff you will get on video. It's a Godsend if you have a lot of animals and idiot drivers. The police actually give you a better pass as you only help them with their jobs filming the road at pints where there aren't traffic cameras. I need to see if my insurer will give a discount like many do in the UK. Congrats.
Mine isn't the Panorama but mine sticks to the windshield to the right of the rearview mirror. It has the GPS antenna above it. The power line goes up over the passenger visor and down the arm between the wind shelled and door, through the underside of the passenger side dash and into the cigarette power adaptor. I could wire it into the rain sensing wipers but this works for me. It goes on with the engine and off when I power down. It's out of the way but if I choose to leave the screen on I can see the view but normally it shuts down after 2 minutes. Out of sight out of mind. I use the mute feature all the time. Don't want to record loud music or me cussing bad drivers. I've used a dash camera going in 4 years in Summer. Have them in all the cars. Set up is super easy as is pulling the micro SD to view in the Mac through a USB or SD adaptor. Great software shows almost everything I could want.
