Dashcams

dashcam in a car

If there is one car accessory we have seen a rise in popularity in the last decade, it is the dashcam. It is unbelievable how these pieces of electronics have existed for more than a decade now, and yet in some countries such as the United States, we are just beginning to appreciate the technology’s utility.

We have documented accidents through them. Felons have been punished due to the irrefutable proof provided by dashcams. Users have also been creative with them, just like they did with police scanners. There is a hefty library of unusual and occasionally funny events, so much so that people have been inspired to compile hilariously and even fail videos recorded with a dashcam. We suppose there is not enough time to see them all.

You’re probably not here for that, though. What is more likely is that you are pondering on taking a few bucks off your budget to install one on your car. There are circumstances specific to you that might have pushed you to look into these cameras — a prankster in the neighborhood, an added insurance for your vehicle, a youngster just learning to drive, and so on. Some even double as radar detectors, so if avoiding expensive speeding tickets is also a goal for you, then these are even more enticing.

Well, you have come to the right place!

Recent times are very exciting for technology. While ten years ago, dashcams were too bulky to be worth the trouble, and not to mention expensive, they have come a long way since. There are different competitive models to choose from, prompting manufacturers to bring down the price points. Users are coming up with more ways to maximize the nifty equipment, and making do even with occasional interference from radios. Different features are also being jam-packed into the compact electronics that some have had a hard time keeping up. While the last fact is generally a good thing, it makes choosing the right dashcam all the more challenging.

We are here to help! We have reviews, top lists and comparison pages for more smooth-sailing decision-making. For those who already own dashcams, there are tips and beyond to get the most out of your purchase.

Descriptions of the different kinds of dashcams, as well as the extent of what they can do, are also detailed. So stay, look around, and read — we have your back!
