    Well then it's worth getting if it lowers your insurance rate. Don't think it does with mine but who knows.

    Also read that not all insurance companies recognize and/or will discount insurance to people using them. For those people who buy the cheaper ones, insurance companies don't think the video, sometimes fuzzy/grainy, isn't reliable enough for court purposes.

    That's California. Maybe some other states, which have no-fault insurance. In Maine, you wait for the police to come even for a scrape in the paint.

    I have a dash cam, but I haven't set it up yet. I didn't buy it for accident purposes though, but to record tours of places that I might go. Actually, I didn't buy it. My wife bought it for me as a gift, but I hinted about it.

    Yes, each state is different.

    This video shows an example of a rear view mirror camera that is simple to install.
