    As Mr Ashanti said... the Nextbase Duo dashcams are great... two cameras covering both front windscreen and rear, the view through the rear window is amazingly good...

    I had a Transcend Driver pro 550 fitted on the XF before the Next base duo came out. I had the Nextbase duo fitted to the wifes Lexus later. They are both good cameras the Transcend is fitted with a front facing lense & an interior facing lense good for Taxis or filming road rage inside the cab LOL! or use for extra wide vision from the front.
    The Nextbase Duo on the Lexus is my preferred though it gives good rear vision from just the one camera. Both were fitted by Halfords who did a decent job for hardly any additonal cost.

    I did however take the XF back and had the hard wire kit removed and the cable run under the centre console with a lighter attachment fitting to plug into the accessory socket, this enables me to plug the camera into my Tacklife T8 Max. Battery power pack so it can be left on for long periods when parked up without using the car battery. They didn't charge me for that lol!

    Nextbase supply f.o.c a replacement black suction mount as the original clear suction mount was prone to falling off when the screen gets hot. Make sure it comes with the black one, Halfords keep spares to swap over now. They can also supply an adhesive one but are not allowed to fit them (don't ask) so that is a diy job
