    Hi All

    I'm looking to get front and back dash cam. The front camera with a screen preferably to see what's going on behind. Any advice? What are you using? Wifi or wire?

    Do you mean two dash cams or a dash cam to record what happens in front and a rear view camera to supplement mirrors?
    The dash cam screen shouldn't be live when driving unless it can't be seen by the driver, as it would be a distraction.
    For rear view I would definitely go for wired - see note here.

    Ideally I'm looking for a front dash cam and a rear view camera to supplement mirrors but I want the rear camera to be able to record and store footage too. Can this Camos Tilt Camera do it?

    As far as I know the Camos doesn't have a record facility, ours certainly doesn't. I'm not aware of any rear view cameras which do record/store but other people may be.

    I did some researching and it seems that the Blackvue DR750-2CH can record and display the video from the rear camera simultaneously. The only thing I'm concerned is the size of the display – it's only 4.0 inches. Not sure if I will be able to see everything clearly on the display. Has anyone used this camera? Is it possible to connect the camera to a larger screen?
