Best Dash Cams

Dashboard Cameras are an increasingly popular way of recording what happens in and around your car, and can be of great assistance in insurance claims or police investigations. Read through this guide to find the dash cam that’s right for you!

Dash cams continuously record while driving. In addition to helping in accident investigations, they can help identify the number plates of cars fleeing an incident, and be a simple way to record a road trip or the interior of a car. Many can capture incidents (like hit and runs or break ins) when the car is parked. Most dash cams are an affordable and effective way to give you peace of mind on the roads.

You can buy a single channel (1-CH) or dual channel (2-CH) dash cam. 1-CH is a front-only camera, easy to D.I.Y install and is generally the most popular choice. 2-CH records out of both the front and rear windshield, good for recording tailgaters and collisions from behind, and has a more complicated set-up process (in order to connect and power both cameras).

The quality of the recordings is very important, since identifying finer details is the whole reason for having a dash cam. 720p Full HD is thought to be a bare minimum standard though 1080p is definitely safer. Higher frame (minimum 24fps, ideally 30fps and above) and bit rates, as well as larger lens apertures, will increase the clarity of the image. HDR/WDR features may also help with the quality of recording at night, but be discerning when products claim to have a ‘Night Vision’ mode as this isn’t always a noticeable difference.

There are some important features you should consider when buying a dash cam. First, automatic motion and impact detection means your camera will start recording after being hit while parked. “Pre-buffered” parking mode recording will also provide footage of a few seconds before the incident. Some models come equipped with GPS that records location and speed and attaches it to footage, which may help with insurance and police investigations. A built-in display will also help you align the camera when setting it up.

Most dashboard cameras are powered via your car’s 12V cigarette lighter. Some also come equipped with an internal battery to power it when parked, the duration of this battery depends on the manufacturer. Some models can be hardwired into the car’s power supply. Other dash cams use an internal capacitor instead of an internal battery, and will only work for a few seconds when the car isn’t running, meaning this type of power source isn’t suitable for automatic impact detection.

Finally, consider the storage capacity of your prospective dash cam. Most models use loop recording, which will record until the memory is full and then rewrite the oldest files to always give you the last few hours. The size of your Micro SD card will determine how much footage you get. Also note that the higher the resolution of your image, the more space the recording will take up. Be sure to check the maximum Micro SD Card capacity of your dash cam to make sure it’s right for you.
