Action camera

I hope this hasnt been made before, couldnt find it anywhere,

Could anyone recommend a good action camera for the car like a go pro? It has to be withing a resonable price as a go pro is far to expensive for an apprentice like me lol

I have a Hero 3 HD. Silver edition I think.

Picture quality is great, sound is rubbish, ease of use without an iPhone app is rubbish (even then it's ok at best), battery life is pretty terrible. The supplied software is crap.

It's rugged though but for in car use at least, I use my iPhone on a decent mount.

The nextbase range are pretty good (I have a 302g) and reasonably priced.
They are aimed more at anti insurance scam but do a good job as a go-pro alternative.
NB A nexbase records multiple 3min segments by default. This can be changed.

Not bad quality coming from it. apart from the face that you tube keeps putting it to a lower video quality rather than the 1080p it was shot in

I have just bought a NextBase 402G iN-Car Cam at 130 (20 off at Maplins) and very impressed with the results so far.
