The Best Dash Cam

The Best Dash Cam

A dash cam is useful for drivers who want to record what’s happening on the road in front of their car. It’s especially appealing if you’re concerned about being the victim of an accident and want documentary footage that you could provide to an insurance company or the police for use in a lawsuit or criminal trial. You might be considering one because of a past collision, or because you’ve had too many near misses. You might also want to record footage as a matter of course to help others (if you spot something happening nearby), to help improve road conditions by having graphic examples on hand, or to monitor the driving habits of someone else (with their knowledge), such as an inexperienced teen driver. (This video we captured during previous dash-cam testing shows an unsafe intersection, and we forwarded it to the local township.)

Dash cams are appealing if you’re concerned about being the victim of an accident and want footage for an insurance company or the police, but they’re also useful for monitoring driving habits.


Dash cams are also becoming more popular for people who want to share (say, on social media) anything from on-the-road incidents to striking landscapes. You’ve probably seen the YouTube footage of a meteor in Russia, and video from police cars. You might enjoy passively filming something strange, amazing, or funny on the road, and want to share it for entertainment or even a taste of viral fame.

Once set up, every camera we tested operates as a simple plug-and-play device: It starts recording automatically as soon as you power it up, either when you turn on the car or (on models with an internal battery) when you press the camera’s power button. Similarly, recording stops when you power the device off. All the cameras “loop” their recording, so when the memory card fills up, the camera erases the oldest files to make room for what it’s currently recording.

To record accidents, all of our test cams use an accelerometer (also known as a G-sensor) to detect a sudden change in speed, which could indicate the car being in a crash. When this occurs, the cam automatically saves the currently recording footage and protects it from being overwritten. Most dash cams also have a save button that, when pressed, protects the current segment against deletion so you can retrieve it later. In addition, most dash cams can capture a still photo, if you desire, and some of the ones we tested do that well.

1920×1080 @30fps resolution at 30 frames per second, and in all the lighting conditions we tested, this model produced crisp images that made seeing details and license plates easy. It accept cards up to 128 GB. The camera’s 140-degree field of view hits the sweet spot—some cameras cut off the edges, while others offer a view so wide that cars in front of you look farther away. And with  DPai mini dashcam high resolution, you can zoom in when examining footage later and still make out important information. The  DPai mini dashcam is easy to mount on the windshield, it has buttons that are easy to reach, and it provides reliable, automatic operation each time you get in your car. Other cameras tick those boxes too, but nothing as affordable hits them all, and none of them performed quite as well across the board as the DPai mini dashcam.
