Good idea what make is your unit? Supplier?  confused3
Sorry, I don't know the make, simply a nice quality unit I got on e-bay from China, & I wired it into the sat-nav, works great, made the cover myself.

Not mine, sadly! Mine doesn't have a GPS module built in. I could probably connect one, but TBH I'm not that bothered. I suspect that in most cases the cause of the accident will be clear-cut, and where it's not, GPS data probably won't make any difference to the outcome (i.e. it will just be counted as equal blame for both parties). As we know, the insurance companies prefer to find equal blame, because it means that two policy holders lose their NCD instead of just one...

Hard wired, but nothing is seen anywhere, all fed through behind panelling & voids under lockers etc.cab roof liner, screen pillar, then under the dash!!

Thanks for info. I have yet to investigate where to run wires and try removing panels to do so.  confused3

Blimey....someone likes hard work!  hugegrins

I've been looking at the Mio Mivue 538D which comes with GPS tracking. http://www.avrmobiles.co.uk/acatalog/mio-mivue-538-deluxe-in-car-dash-cam.html#a908254
Not cheap but i've already had a Hong Kong 15 quid job which is absolute rubbish (only decent thing about it was the sucker mount!).

I've seen the images from the Mio range and they are very good but study the tech specs of each as the one below this, Mivue 538 comes in a bit cheaper.....but has no GPS tracking. See the full range 'specs' on the chart at page bottom of that website. Also noticed it's worth shopping around as prices do vary.
