Looking for recommendations from people who actually have a dash camera in use???
We drive predominately a Tahoe SUV which is taller than sedans of course--
I would like a model that has good wide angle view since I worry about t-bone accidents
And would like to know about features that are more desireable/useful---
We have a nav-system package w/rear camera
Is there any type of system that records rear and front simultaneously??

As long as the driver's field of vision is covered, the primary purpose is served. If someone T-bones you, it is pretty obvious that they are going to be at fault unless you ran a stop sign. Most dash cams are low-res enough that it is a good idea to read aloud the tag number of any vehicle you think might be a danger. A wide angle view would just make that resolution worse. Buy inexpensive, get two or more in case one gets stolen or breaks. I NEVER drive anywhere anymore without a dashcam recording. They are cheap insurance.
