Buying Guide: How to pick the right Dash Camera for your Car

A dash camera is slowly moving from the stage of being a simple accessory to being a security necessity. In this buying guide, we will be looking at all the factors that are important and crucial and thus will be helpful to you in choosing a Dash Camera for your car. 

1. Video Quality

A camera is defined by the quality of video it provides and a dash camera is no exception. A typical Dash Camera should be having a good 1080P recording capability. There are a lot of cameras in the market which promises you even 4K HD recording but end up giving you a meagre 360p video which serves no purpose. Look at the reviews and ratings before you buy. There are a lot of models which DO offer you 4K recording but it is just a matter of finding the trusted one. 

2. Wide Angle Capability

As we have already mentioned before, the Wide Angle Capability of a dashcam refers to how far and how wide the camera can look and record video at. A rule of thumb is that the camera should have at the very least a 140 degrees wide angle. 

There are a lot of models (mostly models that integrate into the car) which provide even 160-degree angle as well. Look before you choose.

3. Screen

The screen on a dash camera is very helpful when you are reverse parking or parallel parking ( in case you have a multi-channel side cams as well). You would either be placing them on the dashboard or on the windshield. 

In the case that you would be placing the camera on the dashboard or in the gearbox area, a large size can do the trick and even be helpful. In the case that you are placing the screen on the windshield, it is suggested that you go for a slightly smaller screen. This is to ensure that the screen will not obstruct your view of the drive and thus be safe.

Small or large, one thing that sticks commonly, in either case, is that the screen should be able to support 1080p or 2k or 4k video resolution.

4. No of Channels

The number of channels in a camera refers to how many lenses are active in a single go. While if your goal is to have something monitor the rear area ONLY, then go with a single channel with a single camera. If your goal is to watch both the front and back, then 2 channels. If interiors of the car are also included, then you would be looking for a multi-channel version. 

But here, you need to consider costs as well. As the number of channels increase, so do your costs so choose wisely depending on your need. If you are looking for more security, then go with Multi-Channel versions without a second thought.

5. App support

This is actually very common. A lot of dash cams come with app support. Apps are central stations where you can view all the recordings, set custom commands and control your Dash Camera. Different cameras come up with different app configurations and no two apps are the same. 

While choosing the camera, you will be looking for what all the features the camera’s app comes with. Can it record at night, the custom settings, remote views etc.,

6. GPS and WiFi

GPS and WiFi are the two most important things when you look at this camera from a security point of view. With Cameras that have GPS, you need not worry about your car getting stolen. Through your app, you can easily control and pinpoint the exact location of your car too. Furthermore, you can also use the GPS for navigation purposes as well; a feature that is present in advanced cameras.

7. Loop Recording

A cool feature that comes with a lot of trendy dash cameras, loop recording is particularly helpful in maintaining the storage capacity of the camera. If your dash camera has a loop recording feature, you can leave the camera in a power-on state and leave it. When the memory fills up, the loop recording feature will automatically delete old videos and start recording new ones. As most of these models come equipped with Apps and WiFi, you can configure the camera to automatically send in the video files to the cloud to save memory as well.

8. Night Vision

Another key important feature, cameras with night vision recordings are particularly helpful not just in the evenings but also while you park your vehicles in dark cellars etc., 

Night vision modes in these cameras refer to the camera’s ability to record in very low light by using the lights of the car or light from any feeble sources in the surroundings. It cannot literally view things in Infrared.

9. Warranty

Finally, we come to the most important aspect of cameras; that is the warranty part. While Cameras do not come with hefty warranties, good choices do come with a 1-year warranty at the least. There are a lot of good products with just 6 months of warranty as well. After you have looked at all the features and offerings the cameras provide, you can finalize on your choice by comparing the warranties of those products and pick the one that gives you the best deal. 

10. Customer Support

Apart from the warranty, you also need to look at the customer service and the brand reputation for the product that you are picking. There are a lot of products that give out a wide range of wild features with a good warranty but if their customer service fails, nothing else matters. Similarly, there are a lot of products that may not give you cool features (just the important basics) but offer superior customer support that makes you actually helps you in tough situations.
