      I have got 2 of them shipped to India. One escaped duty while the other was not so fortunate...some 800 odd rupees came as duty.

      I'm unsure how SmartCam HD2 will be but there are lots of look-alike DashCams (Ex. CarCam) which didn't fair very well in reviews. To avoid clones, please make sure you buy directly from their eBay store.

      EDIT:
      Here is one of the SmartCam HD videos I found on Youtube. IMHO, it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of picture quality, motion and light change handling.

      Garmin's New Dash Cam

      Finally a dash cam from a reputed brand, albeit a bit pricy at $250 Garmin's New Dash Cam
      Waiting for some real reviews of the same. I'd have preferred if they had integrated the cam to their new navigation device itself. Hopefully other big players too will jump into the market.

      Garmin rolled into this year's CES with a ton of stuff, including a brand new camera which can be mounted on your windshield. Dubbed Dash Cam, the device can take WVGA, 720p or 1080p video, and the idea is to have it capture footage of daily drives and use that as evidence in case of an accident -- "It is fully automated and gives drivers peace of mind knowing any events that might occur will be captured," Garmin says. The Dash Cam, which features a 2.3-inch display, also comes with a built-in microphone, microSD card slot and a GPS receiver that makes it possible to have time-stamps and geo-tags on all recordings.

      I have been looking at this for some time now and its cheapest at 103 dollars including postage and a 32 GB SD-card from AliExpress. I have read a few reviews on it and they seem ok.

      IIRC, Garmin has been trying the DashCam market since mid-end 2011 or so, but for reasons unknown, there wasn't much traction even in the DashCam crazy Russian market. And I don't think the reason was the price since much higher priced cameras were doing quite well in the market.

      May be Garmin's name is "struck" with GPS and map based devices and consumers' minds are not registering Garmin and Dashcam in a single sentence

      Digital Vampire, I just received my Livue LB100 today. Ordered it on eBay from the same seller you suggested. Price was $120 including shipping. I got a further $20 discount thanks to an employee coupon.

      Installed the cam half an hour back and did a small drive around my office campus to test it. The videos have come well. Smooth and without any vibration. Need to check how it is at night while going back home. The only issue I feel is it is not as wide angle like the GoPro. But I guess its ok for the price it is offered.

      I am looking for something of that sort since long. Said you the same during our Pondy Meet GoPro Hero3+ audition.

      The LB100 has a 150 deg lens whereas GoPro offers 170 deg (in the highest setting). The coverage as you figured out is a bit less, but the upside is lesser barrel distortion on LB100.
