Do I need Night Vision capability on my Dashcam?

Watching some of the Youtube channels and reading this forum, I decided I need to get a dash cam. I found a couple I like but they dont have night vision. Anyone have an opinion on this? Also anyone using the dash cam that clips over your mirror that looks like a mirror? Those I think mainly seem to have a separate cam for the cabin view.

Any comments are appreciated.

Not to come of as totally cheap, but I DO drive for Lyft. Is there a sub $100 camera that is even half decent? Thanks.

Also, are we allowed to have a camera in NYC? Must I post some silly warning?

No warning needed, you can record audio and video in NY without passenger consent. The state is a "one party consent state" which means you can record video AND audio as long as one party consents to it (i.e. you).

I like it. Hey, are you guys removing the camera when your vehicle is not in use?

The camera is designed in a way that you can set it up and forget about it. You can easily run the cable through your car's trim and hide it. Unless you're worried someone might break into your car to steal it, I wouldn't worry about removing it everytime.

As far as a warning sign, nj2bos has answered your question.

How does the nightvision recorded video look, quality wise?
Like watching an HD black and white video.

I got two Vantrue N2 Pros, absolutely love them.
Make sure you'll get the *pro* version.
And if you can, wait for a Deal to come up on Amazon or Newegg.
They should go for $149.00 and not $199.00.
:wink:

No. Keep your Money until you can afford the real Camera.

One more thing:
Make sure you'll order the "GPS Mount" with the Camera.
The Vantrue N2 Pro usually doesn't come with it.
That Mount sets you back another $22.00

Is the GPS Mount necessary? I cant imagine using it.

The kind that go over your mirror, the Falcon F360, has infrared lights for night vision but it is not that good.

Should a situation arise where you absolutely positively must have a good recording just turn on the interior lights.

I use vantrue N2 pro
Night vision is sharp in black and white.
If not safe parking neighborhood, remove the camera when parked.
$200 on Amazon, + Samsung evo 32 card about $14
Copy necessary files to your computer, otherwise it records in a loop forever.
