No. Dashcams are very simple and reliable devices. They consist of basically of four pieces—the dashcam itself, which is typically mounted ahead of, or underneath, the rear-view mirror; a removable SD memory card that slips into the dashcam; The dashcam power cable which plugs into the cigarette lighter or a 12-volt power outlet with which many cars are now equipped; and the dashcam mount itself. The recording process starts automatically as soon as the car engine is started. When the engine is turned off, the cam automatically shuts down. There is no excuse not to buy a dashcam—they are extremely affordable and provide incredible benefits. Our expert customer service team is standing by to find you the best deal on the dashcam you need.
