This is why I have a dashcam.

I've been using a Waylens for the past few years but starting to wonder what to do with it when I get my Wrangler. It's a pain to constantly put up and take down but there's no chance it'll last long when the Jeep is open. Trying to come up with some ingenious way to conceal it.
Where did you find to mount it in your JL.... Is it a 360 model and will it work on the roll bar upside down.

Has anyone mounted a dual camera like the Vantrue N2 Pro on the roll bar.

“Most” States means a majority. So, in 26 states or more, they are illegal? Can you cite me a reference in, oh, 3 States, that Dash Cams are illegal? Now, if you go with the “windshield obstruction” argument, you MAY be correct that SOME dash cams may be considered an obstruction. However, some of them are smaller than some state-toll-road-authority EZ-Tag thingies. Hard to make an argument that a Dash Cam is an obstruction when it is actually smaller than the toll tag.

Can you explain what you mean by “Data privacy laws”? Better yet, can you cite me an actual example that a Dashcam, that takes pictures only, is in violation of “data privacy laws” at either the State or Federal level?

I am aware of entire fleets of commercial trucks owned by huge companies that have Dashcams in them. Hard to imagine that these companies are in violation of state laws in at least 26 states. There are several companies that sell solutions to commercial fleets. LyTx is one. Their clients include huge trucking companies as well as government entities. You should write to them all and tell them that they are illegally operating.
You can film “ANYTHING” in public, ANYTHING, children, Air Force One, Clergy, Cops, Military Bases, ANYTHING, there is no privacy in public.

I'm using a Mobius Max with an under the rear view mirror mount so the police don't arrest me for obstructing a windshield. And as long as I'm not in California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsssssssylvania, or Washington I can record whoever I want because everywhere else is an 1 person consent state.

Power is a difficult one. I'm in an 1 person consent state, but it's a hot 1 person consent state so a lithium battery is a bad idea in the summer. Instead it's a super capacitor with a USB cable running up into the rear view mirror base, along the windshield, down the A column, tucked behind the glove box, and popping back up through the trim around the gearbox. From there it plugs into the Jeep's USB port, but I use a right angle adapter so it's stays flush with the plastic. If anyone's curious, that is 10 feet of USB cord.

Jeeps provide power for one hour on that port and I'm paranoid about battery drains so I have an on/off USB switch just to be sure. I'm usually good about turning it on and off. I'd be better off wiring it directly to the fuse box, but I'm not good with electricity.

The only cool thing I've ever captured was a double rainbow.

You guys are confusing wire tapping laws with free speech and right to film, you do not need anyone’s permission to video or audio ANYONE is public, that is the law in all states and has been upheld in the Supreme Court

Wow, very mature response there buddy...the point is that dashcams are illegal in almost half of all states and their footage / usage is not even admissible in court.
Bullshit, they are LEGAL in all states and are used everyday in court
