[clug] Recommendations for 'Drive Recorder" or "Car Video Event Recorder"s

There's the occasional great video broadcast from helmet-cams (cyclists)
or car-cameras.

I'm wondering if all you need is a smartphone + App (battery, camera,
storage, GPS, Screen, Gyroscope/force sensor, ...)???

Or just windscreen mount a normal small digital camera & record in video

Why do you need Yet Another Compute Device (YACD)???
They seem to take up to 32GB SDHC cards.

What do people out there use or know that friends/family use?

Thanks in Advance.



Dick Smith has 2 Navman models $149/$199.
Advantage: may not be cheap, may not be much of a range, but easy to buy
& exchange if NOP.
