I added a Blackvue 650 dashcam to my car recently so that I could capture that pack of wolves that runs across the road while heading North to Alaska. Heck, I’d even settle for a video of a UFO. Modern dashcams record in HD and will record both the events out the windshield and those taking place behind me. The dashcam remains in hibernation mode when parked, ready to start recording if the car is moved and thereby record the source of the movement to the car (vandal, grizzly bear? I want to know).
Here’s a 2 minute video I took passing by the rock climbing areas near Donner Pass during a pre-trip shakedown cruise. Enjoy! Note: click on the name of the video in the upper left-hand corner to display the video in the full size of your browser’s window.
