What Dash Cam Should I Buy?

If you’re looking for a dash cam there’s no need to spend a lot of money to get something with good video quality and high reliability. My list of recommended dash cams includes cameras with solid rebiews and proven reliability. My advice: if you’re looking at a cam not listed here do some homework and look for reviews on Youtube, Dashcamtalk and other enthusiast sites. If you can’t find any chances are the cam is a generic and not worth your time.

General Recommendation: Viofo A119 V2

Why: This camera has excellent video quality both day and night, with 1440p resolution. The camera is wedge shaped and hides easily behind the rear view mirror. Viofo has a great track record for delivering quality products at a budget price. If you’re in the market for your first dash cam or just need an upgrade from a G1W look no further. This camera features the best combination of price and performance, coming in at under $100 with GPS.

Super Budget Recommendation: BlueSkySea B1W

Why: It’s a basic 1080p cam with decent video quality. It has a capacitor for reliability in hot and cold weather. The video quality is nowhere near the A119, but you could buy almost 3 of these cams for the price of one. Check it out:

Another viable budget option is the Yi Dashcam from Xiaomi. This camera shares many features with the more expensive dash cams including a slightly higher resolution than 1080p and wi-fi capabilities, but the tradeoff is that it is based on a battery and not the most discreet camera. With a current list price of $49 USD it is a great deal.

Best Dual Cam: Viofo A129

Why: Viofo has a good history of reliability. This camera features 2 true 1080p streams and Sony sensors which work quite well in low light. The camera also has many features found in high end cameras, such as parking mode. The resolution may not be as good as the A119, however, the video quality is overall excellent for a camera of its style and price.
