What makes a good dash cam?
The quality of the footage, determined by the lens and the camera’s resolution, is paramount. It should at least be able to capture a number plate.
Because we spend so long in our cars and because dash cams have a finite memory capacity, a dash cam will record over existing footage. However, a good one won’t record over potentially important video. It does this using a g-force sensor that detects a collision and protects the footage recorded at the time. You can manually save footage for use later on, too. Contact Us now for a FREE quote.
A good dash cam should be easy to set up and operate, and be compatible with a variety of software platforms. Dedicated smartphone and tablet apps are a good idea, too.
How much is a dash cam?
They go from £20 for a budget model to £400 for a premium model such as the Road Angel Halo. This records in high-definition and has a Google Maps-based GPS, so it knows precisely where the footage was taken. However, around £150 will buy a perfectly good dash cam.
Best dash cam for clarity
A dash cam that resists the glare of the sun is as useful as one that can film clearly at night. Only a few have polarised lenses to combat glare, but it’s worth finding one, because your insurer may not consider the film as evidence if glare prevents a number plate from being read. Systems worth considering are the Nextbase 512G and 402.
Best dash cam-related apps
Companion apps such as iOn’s let you see footage without connecting the camera to a computer. Consider the dash-cam mount, too. The Transcend 200 and 220 both have good mounts located behind the rear-view mirror instead of below it, so your vision isn’t blocked
