The road in HD
Pioneer packs everything you need into their ND-DVR100 dash cam. The camera will start loop-recording in 1080p at 27.5 frames per second once the engine is turned on, and it'll go into sleep mode when the engine is turned off. Use the cam's adhesive-backed mount to secure the ND-DVR100 to your windshield, and Pioneer gives you a vehicle charger for power. You're good to go!
A detailed account
If you're involved in an accident, the built-in G-Sensor will detect the collision, then save the critical footage. Pioneer chose the 27.5 fps frame rate to accurately capture LED traffic lights, giving you the best presentation possible if you're in an accident that involves a traffic signal. Built-in GPS geo-tags your files with latitude, longitude, date, time, speed, and direction of travel, and Wide Dynamic Range image processing gives you clearer video when you're driving at night.
Pioneer has your back even when you're parked. Depending on your settings, a built-in motion sensor wakes the camera when your vehicle is disturbed to record what's in front of it. If someone hits your parked car and runs, and they're within view, you'll have something to show for it.
This dash cam records video files up to 1080p in a continuous loop, using the included 8 GB microSD card. The included card will give you hours of video at 1080p, but to increase storage, you can add a larger microSD™ card.
Warning: The use of this device and/or a windshield mount may be restricted in some states or jurisdictions.

Joggle the power cable and the unit turns off. The screen is quite dark, and I fear that most pictures will be too dark.
Pros: Seemed to be solution for having a small camera
Cons: Quality totally lacking. It even comes off the windshield when it warms up!!!

The dash cam is great. Works very well for what I want it for. My only suggestion would be to include several replacement 3m backing with it. I'm using the dash camera on a Jeep Wrangler and the windshields tend to break a lot. I don't want my windshield breaking and being replaced to hinder the functionality of the dash cam.
