The screen should have a screensaver mode that blacks it out as driving with the screen showing is also illegal. Noticed there’s a lot of people that don’t realise this
Indeed however on some nextbases like the 512 and others, you can enable a GPS based speedometer which helps. If it's on the front passenger side, it's out of the way so not visible.

Iv got the BlackVue cameras so no screen on them thankfully, all done with Wifi if i want to see anything from the camera.

Anyways's its getting a bit carried away on a different topic, anyone used them with the OBD port?
