Basic dashboard video cameras (dashcams) record video from a single lens and are typically placed in your front windshield to capture footage from in front of your vehicle while you drive. This classification or category of dashcams is best for those desiring a "plug-and-play" single camera angle solution.
Basic dashcams are often the easiest to use. They might not have all the bells and whistles of some of the more advanced dashcams, but they perform their main task well: that is to provide an irrefutable record of the events and act as your backup eyewitness.
The dashcams listed below do not offer GPS position logging, however they do still of course record audio and video, and have standard features such as loop recording and file protection functions. If you would like to record video footage from inside the vehicle (to see what the occupants are doing) at the same time as outside of the vehicle, please see our dual lens dashcams.
