Video camera help needed

Thinking it's time to get one. What works good? Which is reliable, easy to operate? Used OK for price break. Thanks in advance, Andy.

Mine is neat which you know already, but it ain't cheap.

I would like to have a rear view video camera as well, just haven't got around to getting one.
Dave and I both bought a cheapie that neither one of us use anymore.

so, best to get one that comes with good reviews.

What I think is neat about mine, is that the viewing software shows a moving map to the right side of the screen depicting exactly where you are riding as you view the movie.

I do use mine but it's not the best. It does pretty good video but it picks up a lot of noise and things look about twice the distance they really are. Looks like it's not available anymore, this is the upgrade. https://www.ultraprox.com/shop-now/A...lite-p72444389
Good chance everyone will recommend the one they have, like oil and tires.

For $300 I would expect it to be a really good one. Maybe Dodge will chime in on his, I haven't seen any video from it.
