Looking to invest in a dash cam feel it's something to protect me as a driver, any recommendations on one, went to Walmart and seen one for $30 but I feel you get what you pay for lol....

There are several good reviews on YouTube. Try searching there. It also may be possible to use your cell phone.

So did a little bit more research and went with the garmin dashcam 35 ran about $175. I'm very happy with it now just have to find a portable mount because the mount it come with has two sided tape the only flaw it has

Your employer may be willing to purchase one for you, so it doesn't hurt to ask! If not, I would highly recommend buying the best one you can afford.. You get what you pay for. A dash cam will save your butt and prove your innocence! Don't put off getting one and check a few websites or truck stops to find the best deal.. I found that sometimes truck stops have things even more cheaply, believe it or not. Here is a video to check out, pretty darned good one at that! http://www.livetrucking.com/this-frustrated-truck-driver-uses-this-dash-cam-video-to-prove-he-had-the-right-of-way/

Funny you said that lily's momma, went to a truck stop and asked a few truckers and I went with the garmin dashcam 20 after realizing the garmin 35 had no sound bummer it was a nice cam, when I did the research on it told me it had sound but that was the European version. Your right it will save my butt if anything God forbid happens on the road!!!! Thanks for the video
