Posted by The Dashcam Store on 24th May 2017
There are a ton of dash cam options out there with a multitude of features to consider. Do you want a one-channel dash cam or a two-channel dash cam? If you want a two-channel dash cam, do you want the second lens to record out the rear windshield or do you want it to record inside your vehicle? Do you want your lens or lenses to record in Full HD or Super HD? What is your budget? The list goes on and on.
When you begin your research, you may start by Googling “best dash cam.” While this may be a good place to begin your dash cam investigation, keep in mind that there is no universal dash cam model that’s perfect for every single driver. As you make progress in your research, focus on which dash cam is the best fit for you: your needs, your preferences, your budget, and your car.
You have unique reasons as to why you want to buy a dash cam, and you should look for reviews, buyer’s guides, and other resources that speak to you and your lifestyle. For example, if you stumble on a rideshare blog that says the BlackVue DR650S-2CH-IR is the best dash cam out there, that recommendation would be irrelevant to you if you’re a first-time dash cam buyer looking for an affordable, simple, one-channel dash cam… and you don’t drive for Lyft.
That’s precisely why we created this interactive dash cam selecting survey!
If you’re at the very beginning of the dash cam research phase, the short, 10-question quiz above will help identify which features matter the most to you and will give you our top recommendation tailored to your responses. You should be able to finish this quiz and find out which specific dash cam model is best for you in two minutes or less!
If you take our quiz and want to investigate your options further, here are our top resources to help you with your dash cam research:
