Done some research, the BMW option doesn't look so great, Going with the Thinkware F800PRO. Available from Blackboxmycar for under $500

I am leaning towards Blackvue. I would like to hide it behind the rear view mirror. Thinkware appears to be larger.

It just arrived and is surprisingly smaller than I thought

Can you direct me to what you mean by "The BMW option doesn't look so great."

Thanks,

Mike

I'm going to get one but I'm confused. Like, there are so many of them and I don't want to choose a bad one. I read various article and reviews. You can see here one of them. It helps to narrow down the choice but still, there are too many options. Maybe you can recommend me one? I better trust real drivers than such websites.

I have a blackvue dr900s-2ch. It records really good only issue is when downloading a video on my phone, sometimes it loses wifi connection to my phone.
