Dashboard camera owners/connoisseurs: please share your recommendations for the best available. I'm looking for automatic operation and superior image quality.

There is no shortage of cheap dashcams available, and the ones that automatically record when the engine is running (and overwrite the memory card as needed) are pretty much all I need. However, even on the ones that advertise as HD, the quality is still terrible. Is no one making a dash cam units that have cameras as good as the latest smartphones? Money isn't really an object. Extra features such as GPS and motion detection/G-force sensors aren't really required, but won't be shunned.
Bonus if you know of a custom shop in Texas who will install cameras integrated into the dashboard or headliner that require little to no user input to function. I'd love something that was hidden or hard to see.
