I'm currently using Street Guardian cameras in my vehicles - very reliable and great customer service, but they're a bit pricey.

Before buying any camera you should educate yourself on what specific function and features you need/want and the various products available. Recommend you visit www.dashcamtalk.com to start that process. Good, unbiased, product reviews and one of the most active, and helpful, user forums you'll find.

I just purchased a new dash cam that I'll be installing in my daily driver, a 2017 Equinox. I had a cheap one in my last car, and while it was a bit janky and unreliable, it was great for learning which features I liked and which I did not. After lots of research, I bought a Rexing V1P Max. It has front and rear cameras along with built in GPS. Along with the 256GB card I bought for it, it should work quite well.

I plan to install it with a discrete 3 way switch in the vehicle, which will be wired so one side has switched power (on when car is on) and the other side will be constant hot (always on). That way I can chose whether the camera runs when the car is off. At my house on a regular day, no need to record the inside of the garage door 16 hours a day. Parked at the mall or somewhere where it is parked in the street, it would be nice to have both cameras rolling the entire time.

+1 for Rexing (I've had 3 of them, for 2-3 years now).

The biggest challenge, for me at least, was to find a proper power feed. I went with an OBD-based interface, but it occasionally cuts out on the Acadia, for a minute or two. The same interface works flawlessly on the Porsche. I do like your idea of a 3-way switch...
