    In Germany is legal to own and use a dash camera FOR PRIVATE PURPOSE ONLY that means not to publish anything recorded without permission.In special cases as I had,you can show to concerned authorities your recordings IF otherweise you can not prove your innocence.Used 2 times to show to police officers and one time to insurance company,which buy the way turned the case 100% in my advantage.

    Thanks, was getting a bit worried the other day i drove across the border for some cheap sodas. Well, now i know that it's permitted to have it running while driving on the roads..

    I read somewhere in a danish car-magazine that the usage of dashcams in GER was "not recommended", but no answer as to why, was given.

    I was in a traffic control yesterday (germany) and the police officer disliked my dashcams. But as they are not prohibited yet he couldn't do anything about it.
