Dash cams - FREE memory & P&P, UK legal video dash cameras, DVR's crash evidence
vCam is the only 100% UK legal budget dash camera because it does not obstruct any of the windscreen.
As such, Patent protected vCam has been recognized by one major car insurance company who now offer up to 15% discount off their premiums if you use a vCam (full details of insurer provided to purchasers).
Please note; our car "dash" camera conforms with UK law, namely Regulations 30 & 109 of The Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986
Other dash cams that use windscreen suction mounted cradles do not;
If you use a suction cup mounted car cam inside the wiper clearance area of your windscreen and / or if the driver can view an active LCD screen, it is a UK motoring offense (you could end being prosecuted / with points on your license), the video you take can be rendered useless or work against you in a court of law, and your vehicle will fail its MOT!
Can be mounted on sun visor or rear view mirror
Again, our car camera vCam is 100% lawful, because it mounts unseen onto the front of your passenger sun visor (in down position) or rear view mirror (see caveats below, under the photos).
What is more, the video evidence it takes can be used safely with your insurance company and / or police to prove your innocence.
vCam continually video records the road ahead and provides video evidence when you need it.
Great also for recording bad / crazy driving of others for YouTube; easy to move from vehicle to vehicle, take it on holiday with you!
Protect your No Claims Bonus; save £1800 per accident!
Many insurance companies believe in shared liability; that all drivers share blame and insurance liability when they have accidents, unless there is evidence a person is innocent.
If you have an accident that is not your fault, hopefully with vCam you can prove it.
If that saves your No Claim Bonus, that can amount to £1800 No Claims Bonus protection on average.
With the average insurance cost around £1000 and maximum NCB at 60%, an accident will cost you an average £1800 if you are held at fault / partly responsible, as it takes you 5 years to claw back lost NCB.
Free* £20 RRP Memory Bonus Offer With vCam:
Currently we are giving away a free* balanced memory card (needed for camera to function) (*conditions apply - see details below) - most car cams sold on eBay require you to buy this on top of your camera purchase; we are giving the memory card away FREE*!
Why buy a car camera without the memory? It will not work until you buy a memory chip, and what if the memory you buy from someone else doesn't work? vCam currently includes the memory!
Free UK Shipping:
We are currently offering FREE UK shipping - Yes, we deliver from within the UK (we pay UK taxes that pay for UK schools and hospitals)
UK Insurance Companies are beginning to offer discounts to vCam users!
Ask your insurance company if they do / will.
More Protection / SavingsIf you are involved in a traffic accident, road rage incident, auto insurance scam, or witness a crime, you have video evidence to replay to the police and / or download onto your PC and send to your insurance company.
Why face prosecution and / or loss of your Insurance No Claims Bonus if you are not at fault? You do not need to if you have vCam video evidence, because vCam is 100% UK lawful, it can be safely used in a UK court of law.
Also perfect for rental cars, driving holidays, recording bad drivers (perhaps for YouTube), etc.
We offer a solar power / battery pack option which you can add to your vCam; please see our other listings
vCam makes a great anti-vandal night-time security camera using the above optional dual solar charger / battery pack; it does not drain your car battery. Simply set vCam to motion detect mode and connect to a fully charged battery pack, and you should catch any vandals at work while you sleep.
Good Night Time Video Able
Forget cameras with LED night time lights; your windscreen will reflect light back to distract you and advertise the fact to the police; having lights in your windscreen area is also a driving offense in the UK.
vCam does not have night vision lights because it does not need them; vCam has one of the most sensitive (1 LUX) lenses available and takes night time video suitable for insurance, etc. purposes (in combination with your headlights and street, etc. lights).
vCam can also be used as a spy cam (as it is so small) and / or as a back up still / video digital camera, when you are caught out and about without your normal digital / video camera.
Easy to install / usevCam takes seconds to install and moves from vehicle to vehicle with ease. vCam even comes out of the vehicle so you can record damage to the vehicles, other persons and their apparent injuries.
vCam connects to your cigar lighter socket, starts recording when you turn the ignition on, and turns off a short time after you switch the ignition off.
vCam is designed to continually video record the view out of the front windscreen, replacing old video with new, so that if and when you have an accident, you should have sufficient video evidence of that event.
vCam includes a 4 meter long power cable for its cigar lighter connection; this is essential to avoid air bag areas and hide the cable.

Rear View Mirror Mounting Caveats
VCam is designed to mount onto the front of the passenger sun visor but can often be attached to the front of the driver's rear view mirror. If the suspension loops are too small / unsuitable for rear view mirror mounting, they can be removed and the cradle which holds the camera can be affixed to the front of most rear view mirrors by using double sided sticky tabs. We recommend UHU Patafix Pro Power, which is more like a plastacine than sticky tabs; some people have reported using "151 Adhesives Exterior Sticky Pads" with success (please search for both products on eBay or at other good retailers). Again, we do not provide sticky tabs with this product; if you want to affix the cradle onto the front of your rear view mirror, you need to source these separately. Further, if you affix to the front of your rear view mirror you must make sure the camera / cradle does not project out and block any of your view through the windscreen area cleared by the wipers. Also, please note, that some rear view mirrors sit opposite a section of windscreen that is often blocked by vehicle sensor mats and / or an area of the windscreen not cleaned by the wipers. Please inspect your own rear view mirror and the windscreen in front in order to assess how viable this alternative mounting location is. Please remember that if you affix onto the front of your rear view mirror, you need to ensure the cradle is fixed securely. Also be aware that if the camera's view is partly or fully through an area of the windscreen that is not cleared by the wipers, the quality of video will likely be affected by dirt and / or rain on the windscreen. We recommend where possible to mount to the front of your passenger sun visor.
About vCam Ltd. (England).
vCam Ltd is a registered English company and part of a group based in Spain. When you order a vCam DVR from us, it will come from our UK distribution center, NOT from China or outside the EU; please, if you ever order something from anyone who claims their product is in the UK and then it comes from China or wherever, please file a PayPal "Significantly Not As Described" dispute; items shipped from outside the EU circumvent UK duty / taxes (which pay for schools and hospitals) and cost British jobs. When you buy a vCam however, you are supporting the UK as we have paid all due UK duties and VAT / taxes on our cameras, taxes that benefit the UK and its residents.
vCam is Patent Protected
vCam is protected by UK Patent PCT/GB2011/051503. Our Patent basically protects the invention of a) flush mounting a video camera onto the front of a sun visor where it can not be seen by the driver / does not block any view ahead of the driver (not already blocked by the vehicle's sun visor which would have been approved by the vehicle manufacturer) so as to be legally usable in the UK, b) the connection / use of a solar panel to provide power for such a car camera, plus c) some other technological improvements to car cameras generally. Anyone else selling car cameras that incorporate any of these Patented areas are in breach of our Patent and their product is thereby unlawful. At the end of the day, if you like what the vCam does, you need to buy a vCam.
