FTypes already have front and rear cameras, a gps and a hard drive. Surely it cannot be too hard to use what is already there to record driving footage alongside reverse parking and identifying speed limit signs?
Front (or more correctly "forward facing") camera is an option - I don't have one so my car doesn't nag me about speed limits. ;)
Not sure I have a hard drive, either.

Ok, I don’t know when they were fitted as standard but surely there must be a solution for those cars that have all the hardware already, rather than obscuring more of the screen with additional cameras.

PS car doesn’t nag about speed limits, just shows what the limit is next to the digital speed readout, although not 100% accurate.

Just heard from Sturgess, the Jaguar dash can won't fit an F Type and they have cancelled the fitting. Well at least we all know now. Can anyone help, which Blackview will fit a convertible?

After I was told the Jaguar dash cam will fit and then won't fit an F type I went in the end for a Blackvue 4k UHD with battery backup. I ordered a two channel in the hope that my auto electrician would be able to fit it on my convertible. After several tries we concluded the rear camera would either struggle to pick anything up or would look out of place. So I have a rear camera with leads left over. No use to me so if anyone has a Blackvue 1 channel and wants to try it on a coupe PM me and you can have it for free.
