Any link for that product?
I want to see the specs of it mate.

If you are referring to roadhawak and black vue, then Black vue has a in-built battery.
In normal circumtances it is powerd by cigarette lighter / hard wired, but in the case of accident when/if the power is interupted, Black Vue still records with the help of the in-built battery.

Just found this: http://www.mi-witness.co.uk/
I've just emailed them to ask if it's fully Mac compatible and, if it is, this is the one I'll be getting.

What is special about this?
I can see that it can support the second camera. Any thing else which I missed and other products cannot do?

As I said, the possibility of Mac compatibility. Not an issue for Microsoft users, but significant to those of us who have Apple Macs.
Other benefits, as I see them, are UK design, phone/email contact direct to company base in Nottingham, plus a dedicated discussion forum: http://forum.mi-witness.co.uk/forum.php
Only had a brief look so far, but it looks as if there's a wealth of information.

Did you go for the BV and, if so, how are you getting on with it?
You might be interested in this favourable review: http://dashcamtalk.com/blackvue-dr500gw-hd/
I remain undecided, but still favour the MI-Witness - a lot of info on their discussion forum.

Bomber,

Is it easy to install so that you can watch via idrive?

I'm more concerned about fitting it so that every scroat in the area isn't tempted to smash your window to pinch it!
