I would like to have a dash cam that mounts on top of my car roof with a 360-degree view, that records all the time, even when the car is parked and off. It would be useful for recording the full perspective if I am ever in a wreck, and it would have identified the fuckers who broke into my car, and the dickhead who dinged my door. Also, if I had it, I would have already had some good videos for Youtube.

Ideally, it would be a simple, nondescript black dome, permanently installed, so it would take some work to steal it.

Does such a thing exist yet? I was considering buying one of the 360 cameras and going to one of the local custom auto shops to get it installed. Probably cost a fortune, though.

Google makes one.

Yeah, something like, perhaps a little more discrete.

This looked promising. I think it crashed and burned.

I've been flowing dashcam for a while. Never seen one that's 360*

Best Buy has a number of 360 degree cameras on sale, but none of them come in a roof mount. You probably wouldn't want a 360 camera inside the car.

Best bet is one of the two channel ones (fore and aft facing), like a Blackvue DR650GW-2ch.  Add a Power Magic Pro to it to allow it to record for a pre determined amount of time after shutting the ignition down, and you're good.

Love mine.  Set it and forget it.

Seems like ever since I've been using dash cams, nothing cool ever happens anymore.

Not as a single camera, think of  3 cameras in one housing.

I have one front and rear.

I was interested in this one about 5 years ago, but it was too big.

Gopro just came out with a new 360 camera. Or you could get 6 GoPros and a 360 mount.
