...so i'm not the only person that wants it for the same reason.
Yeah... I've always wanted to have this setup ever since some douche backed up into my stopped car and then claimed I rear ended him.
But now that I'm in Japan it's more for recording play with my jgirl than actual driving.
Used to drive 40-60k km a year in Canada, but here... not. Lucky if I get past 15k here.
I am planning to get some shaping plastic (sheet form) and heat it up and mould it into a passable phone holder for my xtrail (hanging from the ceiling, passenger side a bit behind the rear mirror).
I can just picture it now.... dude runs red light, xtrail vs typical japanese car mass... then dude claims I ran red light. blah blah. THEN, after i've safely made 3 backups of video footage, I produce the goods. all dudes money are belong to me then baby.
I actually used my phone to record a fight between 1 elderly taxi driver in shinjuku and what eventually became 10 (TEN!!!) Jsatsu (Japanese Police). The one cop was literally screaming 2 cm away from this old guys face. All because he wouldnt show him his drivers licence - at least from what I heard over the screaming. Nice big croud gathered around and were watching and taking pictures too. I get shaky hands when I have adrenaline rushes so I propped the phone up against a pole to get a clear shot.
