Dash Cam/12V Socket

12 October 2013 - 09:24 AM

Hi Guys,

 

Somebody at work recently bought a GS1000 HD dash cam - http://www.ebay.co.u...=item51af2a81fa

 

He seems to think its good and I was wondering if anyone else has a dash cam of any sort and could recommend one as a lot of them are chinese jobs and i don't want to get a rubbish one. I have recently started a new job which involves some business miles and I've just got a new car so that's why im looking into getting one.

 

Also - I have a 2010 Focus which I believe is the Mk 2.5? The 12v sockets seem to be permanently on which is great! Except it isn't very useful here, since most of the dash cams out there rely on ignition switched 12v supplies for their auto on/off feature (I'm 22 and male so I WILL forget to turn it on/off manually). I have looked at a few forums where other people have asked this and there seems to be mixed answers about it. Someone mentioned some sort of "bridging cable" which can be removed to change the 12v circuit into ignition switched?

 

Can anyone offer any help with either of the above? I would be really greatful!

 

Thanks,

 

Matt.
