Would love to see 2 channel dashcam reviews for convertibles with the... rear unit on the front windshield Blackview or Thinkware or any with cloud access.
It would help decide which cam has better coverage through rear window.
Thanks again for your efforts.read more

I currently own 2 Max 360, 1 Max 360c and lastly my favorite,... Uniden R3. By far, the R3 out performs all the Escort product and is a very reliable product when it comes down to picking up the accurate threat.read more
