140 degree operating temperature, 160 degree storage temperature. I measured the temperature of the windshield of my closed car yesterday with an outside temperature of 72 degrees and it as 160 degrees. Previously with an outdoor temperature of 104 I measured 196 degrees at the inside windshield.

Why do these dash cam makers not make their products to work in the environment they are going to be subject to?

Your readings don't sound right at all. Why would the glass be almost 100 degrees hotter than the ambient temp (even in direct sunlight)? And lets say it is, you're talking about the temperature threshold of the mount not the unit itself as the unit's internals are not attached to the glass. The unit is going to function at the same temperature that you would be subjected to inside the car so unless your car is getting to 160 in the cabin under direct sunlight, I don't think your concerns are warranted.

Use a real mercury thermometer (or digital ambient thermometer) and test what the cabin is up by the dash board, not the surface. Thats going to give you what you'd be at under storage and operating temps. The dash cam is suspended from the mount.

Now 100+ degrees I could see it definitely reaching past 160 ambient if the car is left in a parking lot for several hours in direct sunlight.

I don't know either. This is a great dash cam. I don't have any complaints. I'm thinking about getting their other model with the high def rear cam for $169.

Sounds like you don't know anything about science because you dropped out of high school.

I tried a digital thermometer rated for 150 degrees F and the display blacked out due to the heat. No one makes mercury thermometers that go over 120 degrees F.

I used a meat thermometer that tested accurate at room temperature and outdoor temperature. I did not measure the surface of the windshield. I measure the air temperature just inside the windshield. This is with reflective sun shades up and the sun shining directly at the windshield. The glass seems to magnify the heat of the sun and the reflective sun shades reflect it back to the windshield and you have a green house effect.

The inside of the care get to 120 degrees and possibly less with the sun shades up but at the windshield it is much higher. My temperature measurements were accurate. Maybe you live at the North Pole where the sun doesn't shin directly down.
