Can I use my DX as an automated dash cam?
I have the motorola car dock, and have set the custom app to be the camcorder. Since the camera is not obstructed by the car dock, I have positioned it in a way that gives me a clear view of the road. So when I get in my car, I press the camcorder button, then the record button, and record my drive. Does anyone know of an application or way that I can set it up to automatically start recording once my phone enters car dock mode? Also is there a way to run the camcorder in the background, so I can still use the GPS at the same time and/or receive calls? Both actions seem to immediately close the camcorder application and stop whatever recording was being made.

And I'd like to use your app. A little more info would be helpful. Believe me, I understand start-ups and the like, I am just asking for a little clarity is all.
Thanks, and best of luck with your new app.

I don't want to sound as I am defending our disclosure policy, quite the contrary. I want to learn what people expect to see about our startup, and thanks again for bringing this to my attention. It seems we failed to extract the most important piece from other sites' "about us" and similar pages, namely who we actually are.
It is no secret that DailyRoads.com is registered to a company from Romania, a simple whois lookup reveals this. But, the team is international, and haven't yet decided where to actually establish our "official" headquarters. Wanted to first see what traction our Android app gets, and lately have focused our efforts on improving this app, leaving the main site as "a test environment" - as it is clearly stated on the header of every page.
The upload feature is disabled by default in the Android app, and users have to confirm two options to allow their geotagged files to be visible for the general public. This is because we value the privacy of our users.
But, as you point out, some users may want to know more about us than what is currently available on the main site. We'll work on this aspect, too, after the more pressing Android issues are sorted out...
Thanks and regards,
