So what your saying is that if you have a video with a license plate of someone bashing into your car and leaving damage, you can get them to pay for it? Hit and run if they damage and leave?Lasareath wrote: The only difference for me is I want the ability to keep the cameras on while parking on the street in NYC. So I'm going to run a separate line from the battery with a kill switch in the CD holder under the center arm rest.
Then I can get video if people bashing into me while they attempt to parallel park. On the 3rd day I owned the LEAF some a-hole put a dime sized gouge in my back bumper. I filled it in with paint but it's still noticeable.

I ran an extra long cable along the headliner, down the A-pillar, across the dash, under the steering console, and into the cigarette lighter (using USB adapter). The only place you can see the wire is along the dash, but only if you are looking.
Shameless plug: The Mini 0801 did not come with Mac OS X compatible player software, so I wrote my own (I develop software in my "day job"). It's called Dashcam Viewer (http://earthshinesw.com/mac-dashcam-viewer/).
Here are a couple of movies showing Dashcam Viewer in action with this camera:
Lasareath, the software will help you isolate which 1-min clip the event occurred on but it does not do video editing. For editing like you described the best results will be with a dedicated editor, such as Quicktime Player (Pro).Lasareath wrote:Thanks John for posting these Videos and Links to your software, I have a mac as well and I will check it out!
Does the software allow easy cropping of the 1 minute segments?
Or does it have the ability to scale down the file to a lower rez?
I needed to clip out a 25 second segment a couple weeks ago and it was a royal pain.
