👉 #2 Street Guardian SG9665GC – $200
The camera to pick if you want something stealthier that has been proven to work in very hot environments. While the OPIA2 has gone through a summery without problems it doesn’t have the two years of solid performance the SG9665GC has.

BlackBoxMyCar is our recommended retailer for the OPIA2. You can also buy it directly from their website. Use coupon code “CarCamCentral10” to get $10 off the price.

👉#3 Thinkware F770 – $400
Our choice for two channel parked recording. It’s energy efficient with best of class video quality. Full review:

SD Cards: Thinkware is VERY picky as to what SD cards work. Transcend // High Endurance cards do NOT work with the F770. We suggest buying Thinkware’s brand or the Transcend 400X cards if you want to save money.

Our recommended retailer for the F770 because they have extensive experience in hardwiring luxury vehicles. For example, some BMWs will spit out an error message if you tap the wrong circuit. I’m happy to admit where I’m not an expert, go ask them for hardwiring advice. Check out their Instagram to see some of the vehicles they’ve worked on:

As disclosure, we got the Blackvue DR650GW and the Thinkware F770 rear camera for free from them. Our recommendation is from watching their actions with customer service and dedication to the dash camera market over the years, not from the samples.

Use coupon code “CarCamCentral20” to get $20 off an order of $399 or more.

Street Guardian SG9665GC was borrowed. The OPIA2 was received from the manufacturer. The front Thinkware F770 camera was shipped by a marketing company in San Francisco called Liberty marketing. The rear camera was provided by BlackBoxMyCar.

Thank you for your support!
