    Hi. I want to avoid messy wiring. Can anyone recommend a non-fancy phone that has decent quality video front and back? Grateful for alternative thoughts. J

    You'll have just as much wiring with that as you'll need to keep it on charge. Also unless there's an app already you'll have to find something that can record from both cameras at same time, overwrite once memory is full, maybe date/time/speed stamp the recordings and a nice way of mounting it. In all it would be almost as cheap and much less hassle to get something that is designed for the job.

    T F R. I understood that some of the modern phones had 'on times' of some hours, but perhaps that is not in recording mode?
