Things to Consider Before Buying a Dash Cam

Before purchasing your dash camera, there are a variety of features to consider to ensure you choose the best unit for your needs.

Video Quality

Like other types of cameras and video cameras, dash cams offer a variety of video quality levels. While lower quality video dash cams often offer significant cost savings, higher quality options can offer enhanced end results, which can be helpful when those videos are shared with police departments or insurance carriers.

  • Video Resolution: some dash cameras offer Full HD, Super HD or VDA options
  • Frames per Second: higher rates of frames per second, such as 60 fps, offer smoother live-action video results than lower quality choices like 30 fps.

Viewing Angles

Dash cams are available with both single and dual viewing angles, all of which capture forward images. The advantage of dual angle dash cams is they offer a rear view of your vehicle.

  • Single Viewing Angle: Dash cams with 1 channel face forward to capture images outside of the vehicle and can be less expensive with a reliance on a smaller memory card.
  • Dual Viewing Angle: Although more expensive and requiring a larger memory card, dual channel dash cams capture more angles and thus provide more protection.

Storage

Although some dash cams feature internal memory, most rely on removable memory cards. Most dash cameras use either a SD or microSD memory card and it’s best to purchase at least 64GB of memory space.

Screen vs. No Screen

Dash cams come with or without a LED screen, each having their own pros and cons.

  • Screen: Monitor video in real time, enabling drivers to change angles or settings as necessary, for a slightly higher cost than no-screen options.
  • No Screen: Avoid distractions while driving and conceal video recording capabilities from other.

Wi-Fi Capabilities

Dash cameras with Wi-Fi capabilities allow you to download videos to your smartphone, which is ideal for those who want a dash cam without a screen.

Mounting

Dash cam sets can connect to your dashboard in several different ways, allowing you to choose the best mounting option for your vehicle and usage needs.

  • Suction Cup: A portable option that easily transfers from vehicle to vehicle as well as easy repositioning on the dashboard
  • Tape Mount: A less conspicuous option that offers a more permanent mount

Other Dash Cam Features

Different dash cam options can also provide built-in GPS, parking assistance, social media connections, automatic video launching, wider angle views and motion detection.
