What is VAVA?


NVM - I figured it out.

people everyday U-Turn poorly into oncoming traffic and/or cut across lanes of traffic after stopping on the opposite side of the highway
median to get into the entrance of a mall. I have to do an avoidance turn pretty much every time I dirve.

But if I focus more on the parking dings and vandalism, the cameras I have seen for both driving and parking are the BlackVue, VICOVATION OPIA2
and the Thinkware F800, which recently came up as an upgrade to the 770. I want the camera to have motion detection to capture the hit or vandalism and it's best if
there is the ability to buffer the first few seconds before the event, but not required. I assume field of view is an issue because even with
two cameras, there doesn't seem to be a 360 degree view.

It seems single channel cameras are better for images and 2-channel cameras are better for parking - is that right? So for parking and driving, with an emphasis on
parking, perhaps a 2-channel solution is better but I'm not completely sure and would appreciate any additional feedback.

If you don't mind me asking where in SW Florida. I am building a home in Naples and didn't think I would have this worry.

How well do these systems work with tinted windows? My rear windows are dark...seems like they would only really be effective looking out of the front windshield...thanks in advance!

The lens is very small...at least on the 650..you may consider a slight relief in the film for then lens to see through...like 1/4" or so

I recommend buying the polarizing filter for the 650. Makes a huge difference in windshield glare.

Does anyone know what wire is constant 12v up in the head liner?
