Prices range from well under $100 for a budget dash cam with the basic features to several hundred dollars for a premium model with all the bells and whistles.
Nice Features To Have
- 1080p resolution or higher – the higher the resolution the better the video image will be. We recommend at least at 1080p model as license plate numbers and other small details will be more identifiable. Some newer models are starting to offer ultra hd 4k resolution which is 2160p. Look for these models if you want the highest video resolution available.

Types of Dash Cams
- Rear view mirror dash cams -These models replace your stock rear view mirror and have built in front facing cameras and sometimes a rear facing camera as well. These are perfect for those people who want to keep their vehicle looking stock and to be more discreet about having a dashboard camera installed.
- Window mounted dash cams – These attach to the front and sometimes rear windows with the use of suction cup or adhesive mounts. These are suited to drivers who may want to use the unit in more then one vehicle or are looking for the easiest installation.
Most dash cams are supplied with a cable that plugs in to your cars charging socket. Some people prefer to hard-wire their dash cam into their car’s electrical panel and hide the wires under the panels so that it has a more built-in look.
- Suction cup mount – Mounts on front windshield. Preferred method if ease of removing is important, such as if you need to move dash cam between different vehicles.
- Adhesive mount – Attaches to front windshield with use of adhesive tape and clips. This method provides a much more secure method of attachment then using a suction cup mount.
