It didn't have a noticeable effect on video quality. In fact, the Blendmount is a little bit shorter than the EDR-AUTO mount and sits a little bit further from the windshield. However, the EDR-AUTO mount visibly moves up and down when driving over a non-smooth road. The Blendmount is solid and you can even buy an extension segment for it to move the Blackvue closer to the glass.
Me too. I have two sets of 2 channels Blackvue's. Simply put, you can't have too much security. If you can do it, do it. Even if they are inexpensive ones, some/any are better than none. We have no way of knowing how many would be thugs see an extra dash cam and walk away.
The most important reason is that a dashcam should constantly record and save videos.
This is the main issue that I have with the Tesla dashcam.
When you experience a close encounter situation you will almost always forget to save the event.
In a recent Tesla software update, the last 10 minutes get automatically saved if you hit the horn but this is not sufficient.
I think pressing brutally on the brake pedal should also save any recorded videos.
Note: I don't understand why the Tesla dashcam don't constantly save recordings like any other dashcam?
In the case of constant recording, when the memory is full, the videos should automatically overwrite old ones,
unless marked as saved or because an event was detected during the cording.
I used the bracket included with the Blackvue dashcam and use the 3M tape to stick the dashcam to the windshield.
Later on, to make the dashcam even less noticeable, I attached the dashcam to the rear mirror mount using two small screws.
The two holes are very small and almost not noticeable, in case I remove the dashcam when selling the car.
I liked the Blendmount aluminium mount, but I find it a little bit pricey.

I almost been in a T-Bone hit at a traffic light when the light went green, lucky me I was able to stop in time.
When I checked my recording, I noticed that there would have been no way to read the license plate of the other vehicle.
I am since considering adding some side cameras in case of a hit and run in a T-Bone accident.
