    Seeing threads on vans being nicked and camcorder accident recording and alarms and all the attendant posts, is there such a thing as a camera that can be positioned out of sight say inside the radiator grill or in the case of motorhomes somewhere in the overhead part that starts up with the van and can then send pictures to a computer or phone or something, so if the van is nicked you can see where it's going as it happens or later if recording, don't know anything about such things myself but with technology we have now , it must be possible.

    Not sure what there is to gain from a video of the road surely a map reference or real time map tracking would be far more help.

    Yeah agree, but if you are having a camera for accident recording anyway might as well have one that would do both, and if robbers had another car in front or something you would see both and the ones I have seen on eBay are cheap enough anyway, if they would do the job, also if it was sending a signal to your phone it would have a map reference as well.

    After looking around this one does the lot for £100 , tracks ,photos , sound direct to your phone and you can switch the motor on and off remotely as well as other stuff
