Paul,

It depends on several factors.

Passive use w/ recording in case of incident/accident?

Continuous record ?

Front & rear record ?

I was in Costco & they had a nice unit that had wide angle view for less than $200

I've used a GoPro in my Ford with no interference what so ever.

Except for that annoying TV ad for the Dash-Cam Pro with the two girls in the back seat nasalizing some unrecognizable song! AUGH, not this ad again!

I think magneto interference is highly overrated. I've shot video close to the mag with no problems, and I use bicycle speedometers in a couple of Model T's, also with no trouble. In the past some have asked about mag interference with a pacemaker. If I remember correctly, that was OK too. But on that last one I'd check with a doc just to be sure. :-)

I have cheap car cams in all my vehicles. The one in my truck mounts to the back window and records front and back.The ones in the wife's car and the model T both have an extra camera that mounts to the back. On the T I have the back one mounted to the spare tire. Can't really see if your not looking. Most of them use a mini SD card and will record for about an hour and then just go over the old recording. I got all mine from Ebay. The one in the wife's car last spring saved my bacon, This person cut me off and side swiped me and he claimed that it was my fault. When the police viewed the cam footage the other guy got the ticket and paid the repair of my car. But remember, It can also prove your at fault also.

I have $60nz (about $40us) delivered from China off Ebay units on two of my T's and there is no interference at all. Both are the same units that record front and rear, the rear camera is cable attached and one is located inside the back window and the other beside the number plate outside and both location work great. I think the more expensive units will most probably give you higher quality footage but I'm pleased with mine for the price.

Here is a pic Gene, being Chinese no labels but if you look up Ebay you should find several of these. They come with two different type of screen mounts (that are very good to use), a small backward camera and a remote control.
Here is a link to a video I took in my work ute with the sound turned off which gives you an idea of picture quality.
