Can anyone recommend anywhere that installs the dashcams (front and back) so they are neatly hard-wired ? If so do they supply the cams or should I buy from UK and bring over when I come ?
Thanks

I'm not sure of anyone who does this in Hua Hin, but if you have a minimum of practical skill you should be fine doing it yourself. I did this myself, buying the below camera from Amazon, and followed the installation instructions from the video on the same site (DR650S-1CH/2CH Installation)

Dash cam is a good idea. I have one and not been stopped by police since....none of them want to end up on YouTube.

Also, it gives you ammo when some local moron does something silly and everyone expects you to fix it. Show it to the insurance guy that shows up very quick (ironically when money is at stake) and they will sort it.

Seems like you might soon get a 5-10% discount for having one in your car if you agree to supply the footage in case of a claim.

I've been stopped several times, but I just turn the cam straight on them -works every time, not that I doing anything illegal. However, it prevents their imagination taking over.
