Every driver has experienced moments on the road where it would’ve been helpful to have a camera on your dashboard. Whether you’ve been in an accident, seen other accidents happen in front of you, or simply wanted to capture surprises and unexpected incidents while you’re behind the wheel, there’s now a technology that allows you to do that: dash cams. Easy to install and affordable enough for any driver to own, today’s dash cams can capture absolutely everything that happens while you’re on the road. Especially handy when you need to report an accident or figure out who’s at fault in a fender bender, dash cams can be incredibly useful whether you’re running errands or heading out for a long drive. Check out our picks for the best dash cams right here.

The Best Dash Cams

Looks like something James Bond would use, right? The Rexing V1 Car Dash Cam is discreet, it’s powerful, and it’s got a few kinks we’ll get to in a moment. Rexing crafted this ultra-high durability dash cam with discretion in mind. If you get into an auto accident and you’re recording the outrage of an altercation with another individual, you don’t exactly want them to know that you have a dash cam.

Apart from the design and sturdy chassis, you get loop recording for your older videos to be erased with new videos put in. This one is unique in this regard—you can select five or three-and-a-half minute blocks of time to be recorded instead of a continuous loop. While you can support up to 128GB in an SD card, this model doesn’t come with any standard memory, not even a little 8GB SD card like most of the other models come with.

 

Key Features
  • Discreet design; perfect for those who don’t want to advertise the fact that they have a dashcam
  • HD 1080P
  • Six-layer lens for optimal recording
  • Best dash cam for the money

The Rove R2-4K dashboard camera offers excellent value for the money. Sure, it’s not the cheapest, but it’s packed with features that are typically found only in high-end cams. With 4K ultra HD recording and a 150-degree wide-angle lens, the R2-4K model captures most of the road around you and produces crisp clear footage (216p resolution!). Thanks to its Super Night Vision technology, it also provides great video and image quality in low light conditions.

The camera comes with built-in WiFi so you can use Rove’s app to view and control your dash recordings via your phone (both Android and iOS are supported). This also allows you to download 4K videos to your smartphone and share them with whomever you like. There’s also a built-in GPS that records your driving location and speed – super useful if your kid is driving the car.

Garmin makes killer electronics, and it stepped into the car space with this excellent dash cam model. Like any Garmin product, there are a few kinks, but the high-performance and unique features are bound to impress. This is the first dash cam we’ve seen to include voice commands—tell it to start or stop recording, take a picture, or begin and end the travelapse photo capture feature. It’s all up to you.

You get a magnetic mount for this ultra-small camera, giving you full discretion and a unique way to grab and go. Its 3.7 megapixels still rival the quality of your phone, while the forward collision and lane departure warnings keep you stable when you’re on the road. It may be enough to help you realize you’re tired, pull over, and avoid an accident altogether.

The Apeman C860 comes with a front and rear camera that will help keep you and your vehicle as safe as possible. Both cameras have 1080p dual lenses that monitor the road ahead and behind you with clear video definition. The front camera records in 1440P; however, this is only possible when it works by itself – if both rear and front cams are used simultaneously, then 1080p resolution is automatic. This is still very good as the definition is crisp clear. Night vision is also great as the camera automatically adjusts exposure in low light conditions, capturing even smaller details easily.

The C860 has the ability to take up to 12 mp images and also record audio inside the vehicle. There’s also a mute function in video mode if you don’t want to hear what was said at the time of recording. More importantly though, there is a built-in G sensor, which detects the sudden vibrations around the car, locking the collision footage that you can use as proof for preventing disputes in emergencies.

Key Features

The Crosstour CR900 is a reliable, capable dual dash camera that is more than reasonably priced. It’s small and compact, so doesn’t take up much space, yet it has a nice and clear three-inch screen that you can use to view videos on the go. Video quality is good as the cam records in 1080p – this goes for both the front and the rear one. As for night vision, while the not the best you can find, the footage quality is solid, showing license plate numbers even in low light.

The CR900 model features Novatek Chip Car Camera as its CPU, which determines the basic performance of a recorder, including frame, resolution, etc. Both cams adopt F1.8 aperture and high dynamic range (HDR), which is great news. And with dual 170-degree wide-angle, both cameras provide comprehensive vision, covering up to six lanes.

Thorough folk and filmmakers alike are going to fall head over heels for this model. A contender for the best front and rear dash cam, this device allows you to record your windshield activity and your cabin, mounted perfectly to also record what goes on in the rear windshield. This is essential if you’re the victim of a rear-ender fender bender and you need some concrete evidence.

We can’t say enough good things about this camera—for one, you get 2.5K quality, while your front and rear lens sit at 170 degrees and 140 degrees, respectively. Plug it into the cigarette lighter, and you’re good to go. The odd placement of this, while convenient, means the cable dangles a little bit and has been known to be knocked out. Use with caution.

There are a few seriously epic features about this dash cam—we are shocked at how inexpensive it is. Between the superior suction cup mount and quality build of the zinc alloy chassis, you get stability on and off the road. Flip this into night vision to continue your ventures, but just know that higher res quality recordings really eat up memory. You get a 32GB SD card in this model, so be certain to utilize that.

A 170-degree angle lens allows for a wide range of recording, while the accident lock/emergency mode secures your video from being overwritten when an accident occurs. Playback is a sinch to view on the three-inch LCD screen, and for once, we’re actually happy with the way the adapter wire hangs down.

If you’re looking for an affordable but reliable dash camera, check out Apeman’s C420 model. Similar to their C860 model, only smaller and cheaper, the C420 camera can be perfectly hidden behind a rear mirror. It produces 1080p recordings, which is pretty solid overall, including the night vision. High-definition and a wide-angle camera of 170 degrees is what allows both day and night footage quality to be good.

Despite its low price, this dash cam comes with various useful features, including emergency accident lock and motion detection. The built-in G sensor tech automatically locks the footage in the emergency events, preventing deletion and tampering. There is also 24-hour parking monitoring for protection and loop recording that ensures the SD card is never filled up and you’re always able to record the latest footage.

The Toguard CE35 is a seven-inch touch-screen mirror dashboard camera that can help double your safety with simultaneous recording in front and backup cameras. The device records in 1080p resolution, producing solid, clear footage no matter the light conditions. The display for video recording, photo taking, playback and general settings are on the mirror, which makes the whole adjustment process convenient and easy.

The CE35 model comes with a number of features, including a reversing camera kit for safe parking, G sensor or emergency recording, and loop recording, which will help keep you safe at all times. There is also the parking monitor feature and motion detection, which further add to the security of your vehicle.

Budgeters, you can breathe now—this handy little model comes with a lot of the rivaled features of its more expensive counterparts and is probably one of the best dash cams for those looking for a cheap option. An enhanced G-sensor allows you to lockout your videos and keep them from being overwritten, while the 165 wide angle captures just about everything that’s going on.

The 2.7-inch LCD screen gives you a good look into what’s going on around you, while the dashcam app helps with everything else. While the night vision mode is there, the color balance can take a few extra seconds, giving you glares and issues with streetlights. HD video capture supports up to 64GB SD memory, although this unit doesn’t come with a standard card like we see with most. You have to buy all of your removeable memory separately.

If you’re after a cheap but reliable dash cam, the Crosstour CR300 is a fantastic option. With a 170-degree wide-angle lens, 1080p HD video resolution and 12 mp image resolution, this camera produces great quality footage and images, plus allows a large viewing angle (4 lanes). Thanks to big aperture and wide dynamic range, the night vision is also good, showing smaller details like license plates with no issues.

The CR300 model comes with a built-in G sensor, which means it automatically detects sudden shakes and collisions, locking the footage to prevent it from being tampered with or deleted. Despite its low price, the camera boasts many great features, including loop recording, motion detection, time stamp, screen saver and others. It also comes with a micro USB cable, car charger and easy to understand user manual.

Durable, classy-looking, easy to use, with crisp clear footage, the Z-Edge T4 dash cam checks (almost) all boxes. This model comes with a four-inch touch-sensitive screen with intuitive design and a 1080p rear camera. The front one? Even better – with a 2560x1440p video resolution and a 155-degree viewing angle, the camera captures most of the world around you. Thanks to the WDR technology, the night vision is almost equally good, so the dash cam captures even the smaller details in low light conditions (car license plates are always very clear).

Z-Edge T4 comes with a G sensor, which monitors and detects unusual shakes and vibrations, triggering the emergency video protection in case of an accident that cannot be overwritten. Loop recording allows for seamless overwriting of oldest footage upon filling a card to its max (up to 256 GB card). There is also parking monitor feature that is powered by the internal rechargeable battery.

The better the quality, the easier it is to make out license plates and your surroundings in the playback. The 2-Edge doesn’t hold anything back—parking mode, 2K quality, and a G-sensor that gets the job done. Mount this simply, and let the quality video flow in. This unit runs out of space fast on the 32GB SD card, so an upgraded storage space may be in order.

The 2-Edge is your essential witness to any auto accident or vandalism. Color CMOS image sensors are specifically designed to make license plates clear and easy to read, while the 3.0” LCD screen is scratch resistant and powered via USB cable to your adapter, though it can run just off the battery without needing a constant power supply.

If you’re not happy, you have a month to get your cash back, and an 18 month warranty for parts and hardware. Supports up to 64GB maximum, and the built-in G-sensor works like a charm to lock your videos down when you get into an accident or collision.

A hare’s breath above the cost of #8 on our list, the Fliiners mini LCD dashcam gives you excellent mounting capabilities, while including all the major features that you’re looking for in a dashcam.

Night vision mode gives you a surprisingly fantastic color balance for such an inexpensive model, while the loop feature continuously overrides old data to keep you mindlessly recording with no worries to be had. The LCD screen takes some squinting to look at, but it’s all part of the low cost of this model. If you’re looking to reduce insurance premiums, this is the way to go.

You get full HD 1080p recording, however, this unit only supports up to 32GB SD memory. It doesn’t come with a standard card, so you’ll need to purchase removable memory separately. We do have to applaud their warranty information and customer support here—24-hour support via email, a year on quality-related issues, and a month to send it back for a full refund if you wish.

The features you want, the hassle-free mounting you need, and the ability to keep most of your green in your wallet. What else could you ask for?

Excellent resolution and a three-way mounting feature await you. For any dashcam of any brand, this is the highest res you’ll be able to get at 2306 x 1296P, transforming your dashcam into 2K definition. It goes beyond the quality, however—this camera captures everything from high-speed incidents to the lettering on a newspaper dispenser 300 feet away. This thing’s got some serious power to it.

Swivel 170 degrees for your preferred view, while reaping the rewards of HDR technology—you get seriously crisp night shots, and a fully-balanced exposure for even viewing and video capture. Light and dark spots will be balanced accordingly in each frame.

You can mount this three ways, but this is where we get into a little bit of the issues with the model. Camera’s great, quality is great, but the mounting appears to be an afterthought. The first mount—the suction cup to the interior of the windshield—is beautiful, works as intended, and so on. They give you two additional sticky mounts to move this around as you please, but they don’t hold well, or for long. Couple that with the charging wire hanging from the dash into the cigarette lighter being an issue; the wire’s too heavy, so it rattles around and runs the risk of coming unplugged.

You do get GPS enablement, capturing your location when you’re on your drive, which is great for accident reconstruction should you need. You can also allow your loved ones to tap into this feature and know where you are if you’re on a long car drive. The continuous loop recording is essential—it rewrites over the old data, ensuring you constantly have a fresh stream of (roughly) four hours of footage on the included 16GB micro SD card. Warranty is for one-year on party only.

Best Dash Cam Buying Guide & FAQ

Electronics of any nature require an in-depth approach to how they work, what they’re used for, their durability—basically, anything and everything you could think of. To find the best dash cam, we’ve done all the legwork for you; read on, and make an educated decision based on the products we’ve provided, and you can’t go wrong.

Dash Cam
A dash cam makes parking your car way more convenient.

How do Dash Cams Work?

Basically, their main function is to provide you with visual feedback on your auto adventures. You’re going to hear a lot of arguments like, “Just get a mount for your phone and use that.” There’s a bunch of reasons why they’re not the same thing, including:

  • Dash cams are designed for faster movements; your iPhone isn’t
  • Your phone mount won’t necessarily hold; dash cams have a specific mounting protocol
  • Dash cam power sources are sturdier than standard lightning or micro USB charging; you don’t want your phone to die when you need footage the most

Apart from that, they provide greater detail to get information such as license plate data and allow people’s profiles to show up better. All the things that you need with a dash cam. Now, for how they work, it’s rather quite simple:

Plug in your dash cam camera and position it using its specific mount, and you’re done. They capture high-speed visuals and decent level audios. Dash cams are either plugged-in through a USB into the cigarette lighter (sturdier than phone wires) or they’re hardwired into your electrical system. This can be done yourself, or you can hire a professional to handle it for you.

They operate just like a standard video camera. They record information, storage fills up, and you eject the SD card when you need it. Which brings us to our next topic: what are you doing to do when your dash cam’s virtual memory fills up?

Don’t worry; creators have already thought of that problem way ahead of time. While you’re mostly going to see this in built-in models, your dash cam comes with a feature that rewrites old data. If you can get three hours of recorded footage, it will start rewriting that first minute, moving forward and so on. Either way, you’ll have X amount of previous footage to reflect on. If you need that footage ASAP, such as after getting into an accident, just pop out the SD card, put it somewhere safe, and put the alternate SD card in.

Do I Need a Dash Cam?

They’re quickly becoming a necessity among drivers. Doesn’t matter if you have a compact car or a rig—they’re invaluable when the SHTF. There are zero instances where you’ll stop and say, “Damn, I have a dash cam,” and a hundred occasions where you’ll think, “Thank God I bought that dash cam.”

They’re exceptionally good for:

  • Recording information for playback regarding pedestrian incidents
  • Car accidents to decide who’s at fault
  • Police interactions (we’re all a little sketched-out by them)
  • Spotting random crimes
  • Gathering footage for the amateur filmmaker

There are a bunch more reasons, including keeping you alert as a driver. When you have that constant reminder that your actions behind the wheel are also being recorded, you’re more likely to remember to follow the rules of the road.

Dash Camera
The best dash cams come in all different shapes, sizes, and models.

Features to Look For When Buying the Best Dash Cam

Front-Facing vs Dual-Facing Cameras

Most basic dash cams are front-facing, which means they’re equipped with one front camera. A front-facing camera mounts on your windshield and captures everything that happens at the front of your vehicle. Dual-facing cameras, which are also called 2-in-1 dash cams, capture more area. A dual-facing cam features two built-in cameras: one that’s mounted on your windshield to capture the road ahead and one that captures either what’s happening inside the vehicle. This can give you an extra layer of visibility and safety if anything happens on the road.

Resolution

While this one may seem obvious, people actually overlook this quite a bit. Resolution isn’t just about having a prettier picture—you need to be able to make out details on license plates, facial profiles, and your general surroundings to better determine what happened, no matter what your needs are for playback. When we’re in the car, the camera sometimes has to see pretty far in front of us, whereas when we use a phone or video camera, our target is generally pretty close to us.

Night Vision

This is by no means a “small feature.” Accidents happen more frequently during the day on average, but 54% of all car accidents that do occur at night, are alcohol-related. You can picture it now—messy, messy crashes and a lot to look at. A dash cam without night vision is essentially useless; it’s like having weekend insurance (is that still a thing?)—it’s just not a good idea to go without it.

Wiring

Bit of a car guru? Following the car bible? Depending on how comfortable you are with the electrical components to your vehicle, this decision will be impacted. You have two basic options: hardwired, or charger wired (USB into the car lighter adapter/USB slot in the dash). If you’re comfortable with wiring or you know a professional that won’t rip you off, hardwired is a better option, in our humble opinions. No fear of coming unplugged, and they generally come with rewritable data for continuous video capture.

Warranty

This is essentially on parts and rarely on anything else, so don’t expect to have the warranty put into place if you get into a wreck and the camera gets totaled. However, when electrical parts fail you, having at least a one-year warranty on your dashcam (most come with one year of standard warranty coverage) can be a real saving grace when you need it.

Best Dash Cam FAQ:

Q:  Will My Dash Cam Record Inside my Car?

Nine out of ten dash cam models are mounted to your windshield (on the interior) with the focus looking outside of your car. Imagine that your windshield was a camera, and you were always looking through the lens. Reversal dashcam models are usually for vloggers and filmmakers. Either way, the presence of a dashcam helps improve your driving.

Q:  Is a GPS Function Important when Buying the Best Dashcam?

Your GPS tracking is able to look at where you are, where you were, and what happened following an accident. It uses Google Maps (most models) to track your location as you drive, allowing you to pinpoint the exact location of a car accident or event on the map. This isn’t a crucial feature, but it is a convenient one for the models that do possess it.

Q:  Can a Dash Cam Be Used to Incriminate Me?

Short answer: yes. If you possess a dashcam, that information could be used against you. Even based on front-facing video only, your dashcam shows enough information to be damning. One perk of this is that you’re a lot more responsible behind the wheel, which can help avoid accidents altogether.

Q:  How do Dash Cams Help Reduce Insurance Premiums?

Some insurances can offer up to 12.5% of a discount on your insurance premiums. If you’re a new driver or you’re under twenty-five-years-old, your insurance usually starts off pretty damn high. 12.5% can be a real lifesaver when it comes time to pay the tab.

Since your car dash camera can usually determine who was at fault during an accident, it could help you keep discounts for “No Accident” or whatever your current car insurance calls it. Furthermore, it’s able to settle a claim a hell of a lot faster. You get your money, you fix your car, and you’re on your merry way—sealed and over with.

Our good friends at carinsurance.com have a nifty database of no-fault and at-fault states in America, allowing you to prioritize having a dashcam based on your state jurisdiction.

Q: What do you do when your dash cam’s virtual memory fills up?

Don’t worry, creators have already thought of that problem way ahead of time. While you’re mostly going to see this in built-in models, your dash cam comes with a feature that rewrites old data. If you can get three hours of recorded footage, it will start rewriting that first minute, moving forward, and so on. Either way, you’ll have X amount of previous footage to reflect on. If you need that footage ASAP, such as after getting into an accident, just pop out the SD card, put it somewhere safe, and put the alternate SD card in.

Q: Which dash cam has the best night vision?

The Rove R2-4K Dash Cam is an excellent choice for night vision.  With quality 4K ultra HD recording and Super Night Vision technology, this little camera can deliver clear, reliable video and image resolution even in the dark.

Q: How long do Dash Cameras record for?

A dash cam’s recording capacity depends on a few different factors, like the size of the memory card and whether the camera is battery-powered or wired to your vehicle. Wired cameras can record continuously, turning on and capturing video any time your car is running. Battery-powered models will be limited. However, your memory card also determines how long your camera can record for before it begins looping or recording over any older video footage. For example, a 128 GB memory card can get up to 18 hours while a 16 GB version will capture only 3 hours.

Q: Can you get a dash cam without wires?

Most dash cameras get their power from your vehicle’s ignition, which means they need wires and cables. Battery options do exist, but they cannot run for as long as wired cameras — you will only get a few minutes or hours of capability from a battery-powered, wire-free dash cam.

Our Top Pick

While all dash cams on our Top List are excellent, reliable products, the Rexing V1 Car Dash Cam takes the crown. Why is that, you ask? For one, this camera is incredibly durable, guaranteed to last for several years. It also comes packed with great features, including a parking monitor, loop recording, G-sensor, motion detection, WiFi connection, and others. But what sets this model apart from all others is its ability to withstand extreme temperatures (-20 to 176°F) for long periods of time – and this is exactly what allows it to be so long-lasting and reliable. The REX-V1 model supports memory cards up to 256 GB, which is quite a lot, especially when compared to 32 GB models. All in all, one of the best dash cams on the market, hands down.
