Does anyone have a dashcam in their Jag?

Any recommendations?

I have Blackvue DR900S

Check my previous posts and you’ll see photos of how I fitted it.

Got a nextbase brilliant kit and saved me over 5K from a hit and run this week! Had it professionally wired in for £30

Who fitted this and how much was it in total?

There's also a topic in "Faults and technical" which shows the fitting plus links to other member's who have done it or had it done.

Just ordered a Blackvue DR-750s 1ch for my car through the official Blackvue site. As the dashcam is £225, including a power magic pro, with the install at home the cost is only around £40 more than the cost of Halfords, so it's a no brainer to have it professionally fitted at my home address.

I'll second that I had a DR900S fitted to the XE inc the rear camera - its a very good setup and latches onto the Wifi when parked at home so you can remotely access footage. I would recommend the Power Magic Pro as that stops the camera draining the battery by switching off the camera if the battery gets too low.

Both my wife's car and my XE have Blackvue cameras, fitted by me, on the front screen forward of the rear mirror. The power leads go along the rubber trim above the screens, down the passenger door inside draught excluders, then across below the dash, and alongside the centre console tucked under the side plastic. I haven't fitted rear cameras, due to extra cost, but I think if you're rear-ended it will be pretty obvious from the front camera that you're either stationary or moving forward.
My only negative feeling is that if I'm ever called to use it as a witness then it's going to show my speed too, which might be just a tad above the limit. Please don't reply saying I would be fine if I always kept to the limit. I may be forced into foul language and hate crimes. :o
