If we were to recommend one accessory for your vehicle, without thinking, we’d always opt for a Dashcam.
Whether you purchase one from Amazon and fit it yourself or you have one professionally installed by a company such as Road Angel, it’s a “must buy” car accessory.
We’ve tested many of the units on the market today and have listed our top 3 favourites below.
We have considered budgets and features for each model.
Best Budget Dashcam
The Orskey Dash Cam proves excellent value for money at around £50. Offering Full HD (1080p) footage and a nice 170 degree wide angle view.
Night time footage is really good thanks to it’s built in infared LED. It will also accept an SD card upto 32gb.
Easy to set-up and install.
Best Top of the range Dashcam
Blackvue, in our opinion offer some of the best dashcams in the marketplace. But the units as well as the prices are premium.
We’d opt for this front and back camera system offering 4k Ultra HD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 4G LTE Capabilities with always-on cloud connectivity.
Better to get this unit installed professionally.
Best Mid-Range Dashcam
We’ve had more than one of the Garmin dashcams, even the earlier versions offered a 1440p capture with ultra sharp footage.
Additonal features include driver awareness alerts such as forward collision assist, lane assist and camera location alerts.
Very easy to install and will accept and SD card upto 256gb.
Best Wildcard Dashcam
Not all of us will have a spare GoPro Hero hanging around, but if you do and it supports GoPro Labs then use the functions to turn your old (or new) GoPro camera into a high quality dashcam.
The newer the unit the better quality the picture, with some units offering up to 5k footage and stabilisation.
