I concur 100%. I was a bit hurried in my original response as I got interrupted in the middle of it and didn't take the time I should have in responding. One of the hazards of written communication is one cannot ever hear the inflection or tone intended. What was meant as constructive can be equally taken as smug. Had I had the time, I would have posted the links for him. At least he has them now.

Effectively searching these forums can be a bit daunting, and I think requires skill in "searching", period, which everyone doesn't have....me, included.

I still have a great deal of difficulty finding a particular subject matter here, and, that said, there are a lot of redundant threads started because folks don't know how to effectively search......or, simply want to connect with others here, which you don't get from the search function.

And, we all have our impatient moments.

There are also some amazing brainiacs here , who so overflow with information to share with others that it is good to tap those minds and give them the exercise they need.

Those who search well, providing links to those who don't/won't, seems a happy medium.

I tend to give posters the benefit of the doubt where repeat questions arise. This forum template falls way short of ideal... there have been many times when I have attempted to do my due diligence and look for existing threads before asking a new question, and when I put in a keyword I will get either 0 hits or about 508 hits, neither of which represent search outcomes that can be productively drilled.

Plus there are common topics spread across different subforums and it might not be intuitively obvious that a cross-search might yield results.

Aaaand there have been times when someone asks a question, everyone jumps on it without prejudice as if it's a novel thread, and then a month later I'll stumble across another historical thread with exactly the same content that apparently nobody knew about.


Repeat questions are a good opportunity to summarize the bottom lines from previous threads, if someone feels up to the task of doing so. And to provide linkposts of previous threads.

Back to the subject of this thread - I'm adding a dash camera to my van for security purposes. I've chosen the BlackVue DR650GW-2CH dual channel camera system. One camera will look forward through the windshield and the other will provide and inside view mounted above and behind the driver seat.

I have the single channel Blackvue model and can attest to its' quality. I hooked it up to the same power source as the backup monitor. HD video. It's fun to see all the bad drivers later in review and it sure makes it easier to prove who was at fault in case of an accident.


As for searching, the best way I have found is to use Google, type in "Airforums Interstate [topic]" and it should list every thread that had those terms. Admittedly the search tool on this forum is more difficult to use than it needs to be.

Completed the installation of BlackVue 2-channel dash camera. Here are a couple of photos of the camera installation and screen shots of the front and rear cameras taken on my iPhone using the BlackVue Wi-Fi interface.

I wouldn't consider it that portable. The two cameras could be moved to a second vehicle, but you would need a second set of mounts and video cable installed in the second vehicle. Maybe even a second power cord depending on how you install it. The camera come out of the mounts easily, but the mounts are attached to the vehicle with 3M VHB tape.

I installed my power cord and video cable behind trim panels so they are now part of the vehicle.

The big advantage I saw in the BlackVue is the small size that creates a very inconspicuous installation.
