Is there any rumblings about OEM car manufacturers including dash cams and even rear cams in their options in the future? My ideal dash cam would be one built in to the vehicle, using the dash touch screen for settings, etc. It seems like a natural transition from the current backup camera systems, dash touch screen systems and collision avoidance, lane departure warnings, etc., etc.

Is this is the near future?

One of the things I looked for, when looking at dash cams, was the ability to plug in to the existing video system of the car. Obviously it wasn't a deal breaker, because I ordered the M6+, but it would be nice to connect the dash cam video to the touch screen. That way, if I wanted to, I could navigate to the A/V section and select external video input and view the camera.

I really don't like the dash cams that have screens. It makes them too bulky and hard to hide, and the need to view realtime video just isn't there. Review is what interests me. If I could do that through the screen, it would be more easily viewed than through my smartphone or a tiny 3 inch screen.

What I want to see is the vehicles like new F150s that have 4 cameras to give a birds eye view to have a parking or surveillance mode. Anybody approach it from any angle and see it.

Eager to see this, because hopefully the OEM dash cams won't be so unreliable and I can buy one for my vehicles!

Could you imagine the incessant repeated trips back and forth to the dealer if OEM dash cams were as bad as what we have now??!
