I'm contingent IT work - that is, I'm the guy that gets called for the once-in-a-blue-moon.

I also travel. Used to travel a lot in a 150 mile radius - have done over 40,000 miles in a year before.

And due to where I live, there's spots that have only AT&T service, or have everything but AT&T; have only Verizon, or anything but Verizon; have Sprint, or anything but Sprint.

So I carry three of them.

And have used all three at the same time before - one call on AT&T, the Verizon as a hot spot, and another call on the Sprint phone. Oy vey!

BTW - when my phone rings, it's normally paying the bills

Hey Ralph, not meaning to get too far off topic, but I would like to hear your thoughts on dash cams....

I have one that runs all the time the ignition is on. That good enough? *grins*

Hrm ... I've been through several cheap ones; the BIGGEST secret seems to be "Don't skimp on the microSD/TF card you use".

I can't find the ones I'm using now.

I have a friend who swears by his set, which set him back like $300. OTOH, he can record when I can't ...

But yes, I've grabbed a few nice videos with it. So far it's been unneeded; again, so far my seat belt's been unneeded

Hey Ralph. I looked at Crutchfield and they have a section on what to look for. FWIW last year I had a tractor trailer back in to me.... One of those cameras would have been nice!!

I have a friend who swears by his dashcam ... https://www.blackvue.com/dr900s-2ch/

Here's two videos off of mine, which is forward facing only:



*dry* I spent a whopping $30 on the dashcam, and $45 on the high speed MicroSD card. But today's dashcams tend to be much better.
