3 Tips to Buy the Best Affordable Dashboard Camera

L.A. Car Accessories Store

Road safety should be one of your top priorities as a driver. Over 30,000 accidents occurred in 2020 in Metro Manila alone, causing fatalities, injuries, and property damage. Installing a car dashboard camera is more important than ever!

Why you should use a dashboard camera while driving

Dashcams are small cameras mounted on your car’s dashboard, recording sounds and images while you’re on the road. However, their use goes beyond capturing videos, they can also serve as evidence when you need it the most.

For instance, what if you encountered an unruly driver speeding on a busy highway? Taking out your phone takes time, and it’s dangerous (not to mention illegal) when you are driving. Instead you can rely on your dashcam footage to report the driver and take note of their vehicle’s details.

Three tips to help you find the best dashboard cameras in the market

If this is your first time shopping for a dashboard camera, the selection can be confusing. With so many cameras with different features and specifications, which one should you choose? Here are few tips to keep in mind:

  1. Look for dashcams with a built-in GPS.

The GPS will automatically record your location and speed, matching this information with your video recording. As a result, you’ll have a video stamped with important data to help you and the authorities document the accurate time and place of an accident or crash.

  1. Choose a dashcam with high-quality video recording.

It’s usually not enough to use a dashcam that only offers up to 480p video quality. The resulting footage will be grainy, making it difficult to decipher the details needed for an investigation.

Fortunately, most dashcams these days record at 1080p full HD, ensuring that your footage is crisp and smooth. This makes it easier to see the plate number of the erring vehicle to other important information.

  1. Find dashcams with night shooting modes.

Are there barely any streetlights on your way home? You never know when you might accidentally run into an obstruction, damaging your car in the process. A dashcam that supports night recording can help you avoid these obstacles in the future.

Ensure your road safety and invest in a quality dashboard camera now!
