We’ve all heard the horror stories about the people that back their cars in to a different car then claim they were rear ended. A great thanks to protect yourself is by installing a dashboard camera. In dashcam reviews these item became common accessories now with the everyday driver. Fortunately, the cost of these cameras has dropped where they are affordable for most everyone now. Below I have listed a few dashboard camera reviews for selecting the best dashboard cameras.
The last thing you want to do is spend your time going through and deleting videos where nothing important happened. Therefore, it’s best to choose a camera that comes with a feature where once the memory is full it will start back at the beginning and record over old videos.
The best dashboard cameras leave hard wiring to the vehicle’s battery. This prevents the need to plug it in each time you go for a drive. It also allows the camera to start recording when the car’s cranked. I particularly like this because it’s just my luck that an accident would happen the day I forgot to plug the camera in.
Public parking is treacherous to a person’s car. I’ve been on each side of the fence here. I’ve had my car sideswiped while parked and i have accidentally backed in to a parked car. A good dashboard camera will have a parked mode where it’ll start recording when it detects motion no matter your car running or not. If someone backs in to your car in a parking lot, the camera will record their license plate if they take off from the accident.
No matter which camera you get, confirm that it records HD quality video. This is the only way to know that you will consistently see license plates or street signs in the recordings. Also, if you find yourself needing to use the recorded video as evidence you won’t have a questionable image.
