To add - there are apps that easily let one download and string together segments to create "trip" videos. They all record in segments. They also continuously re-record over the card. The G1 has a push one button and it will save that segment until manually deleted. I forget what size card I have either 16 or 32, but it takes around 20 hours to start overwriting.
Hardest part is running power. I have mine discretely mounted behind the rearveiw mirror, just below that black windshield strip. Routed the wires up the A pillar and wired into an on with ignition wire under the dash.

Although I am not the OP, I have some personal experience with two different dash cam models. I did some research on them a few years ago and came up with these two. I bought them both from "http://www.spytecinc.com/" in NYC and was completely satisfied with their service.
the "G1W" ....... http://www.spytecinc.com/g1w-1080p-hd-car-dash-camera.html is as simple to use as a "point & shoot" camera. Built in viewing screen. Very good quality video. I've used this camera for 1.5 years in my personal vehicle with no problems with the camera itself. The suction cup has had some problems but is still functional.
the "mobius" .... http://www.spytecinc.com/mobius-1080p-hd-action-camera.html is smaller than the G1W and is very capable. It's not as user friendly and requires a computer to set up. I've used this camera in my work truck daily for 1.5 years with no problems.
