 Dash cam holiday videos - legacylad
End of September I’m returning to Spain for 6 weeks pre hip op. Flying as usual, renting a car, limping around the hills best I can, if they’re not scorched earth by a large fire currently raging where I often walk.

Next Spring I’ll take the Yaris to Santander/Bilbao and stay en route with friends who live in the foothills of the Pyrenees, also visit the Picos, then drive down to the Marina Alta.

I’ve never had a dash cam, but it would be nice to make a video of my journey...a holiday momento. Currently the Nextbase 622GW seems to be gaining all the plaudits. It’s larger than the Nextbase 380GWX ( front & rear set up) which Toyota dealers install, but my local Toyota Service Dept tell me they’ll install any dash cam which I can buy independently.

Anyone any experience of doing such a thing ?....there will be lots of mountain roads, and the 4K high def of the 622GW could capture some great mountain scenery.

Advice appreciated

Dash cams not good for holiday vista videos. Too wide angle gives little distance clarity, no perspective - Ok for the primary function of recording the accident 50 feet in front of you.

Consider a go-pro and windscreen mount.

Thanks Z.
I’ll research that option...hopefully connect to the Gitanes lighter.

Also means of course you can take the go pro on your hikes.

I still have a dashcam video collection of my American holiday including driving down to Hoover Dam. Then going from the Freeway to, a couple of turns later, driving down the Boulevard in Vegas and hearing the kids gasp at the sight.

Just make sure you have the means to download / upload the clips you want as the dashcams just loop over and over.

Finally, don’t wait till then, get and start using a dashcam now!

Or get one of those new 360 cameras that appear to act like a drone in front of you!! Very impressive!

As I always think with video, when will you ever watch it again, unless it's a real "occasion" like kids birthday etc.
