I think it is. Blackboxmycar is selling it for $489.99 so you're still ahead by $75 even after conversion and shipping.

I am using this dashcam, my suggestion is to email Blackboxmycar about price match. Much better to buy local should you come into any warranty issues.

On the topic of dash cams, can anyone recommend me a fairly cheap dash cam that's good (relative to its value)? Being a student, I currently cannot afford anything expensive but still want a sense of security.

A year ago the G1W was a popular budget 1080p dashcam with decent night vision.

Not sure if there's better ones out there now but that's my recommendation.

G1W is cheap and pretty good video quality, reliability isn't great though lots of people have bloated batteries and even the capacitor version has build quality issues/glitches

My friend bought this one not great at picking up license plates but reliable and very sleek

Thanks! G1W is well in my budget and looks like it'll do for now. Been hit and run twice now in the past 3 months and although minimal damage, would have been nice to catch them.

Is it important to update your home address on your passport? I moved about 8 months ago and I've got all my other documents/cards switched but my passport is still my old address?

There is a section in your passport where you can write in a new address.

If the space in the passport is insufficient, write the new information on a separate piece of paper and insert it into the passport.

Most likely cause 99.9% of barista's there don't know how to properly make it. It will be different everytime. Get used to it. That would be the last drink I would ever order at a Starbucks, and i'm a store manager of a location.

i gave it a shot...sent em a pic of my license with everything blacked out but my face and my birthday.

They gave me my account back but adjusted it so it now shows my full last name...my original one only had my first name and the first letter of my last name so maybe that's why they deemed it fake?

Which was pretty fucking stupid in the first place cus i've had FB since 2005. If they rejected my blotted out license i would've just given up.

Pretty weird that they now have policies like this though.

Hey guys,
Just got scammed on a craigslist deal.
I haven't bought a camera in awhile, like most of everyone here I just used my phone to take pics. Just had a baby and wanted a better quality camera
Anyways, bought an advanced point and shoot off someone which i now think was stolen or found somewhere.
Seller told me that it charged thru usb, thought this was a convenient feature. battery still had a little juice when I tested it out so I bought it. It does not charge thru usb.
Anyways still have her number, she's no longer replying back.

What can I sign her up for? Help me get even RS!

Maybe I'm misreading/misinterpreting what you're trying to get at but you're looking to get some sort revenge or karma against the seller?

Yet you're openly willing to continue to use a camera that is suspected of being stolen?

I'm not sure who's standing on a higher moral ground here.

Me and some buddies had a similar idea after 9/11, personal parachutes you keep in your office

However shortly after searching we found several companies had actually developed the product, some of them were pretty blatant in their advertising lol
