Dash Cam Reviews - Top 9 Picks

#1. Vantrue N2 Pro - The BEST Dash Cam of 2019

Kicking off the #1 spot on this list is the Vantrue N2 Pro dash camera. THIS is the camera you buy if you want the BEST dash camera for a reasonable price. I’ll explain in details why this one made it so high.
 
This camera has dual lenses which give you 310 degrees of viewing. That viewing would be pointless if it wasn’t for the high resolution, which this dash cam has. Both the front and back camera have 1080p resolution at 30fps. The front camera has the capability of being set as high as 1440p at 30fps.
 
Vantrue N2 Pro is the perfect camera for those who drive for Uber, Lyft, or other taxi services. This camera does an excellent job at giving you clear video when there’s little to no light. It’s all thanks to the Sony IMX323 infrared sensor that allows the camera to operate in low light.
 
Some of the other notable features with this camera are 24 hour parking mode, loop recording, g-sensor, GPS, and up to 256 gb of video storage.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Dual Cameras at 1080p Resolution
  • Front Camera Resolution Goes up to 1440p
  • Good Night Recording Thanks to the Sony IMX323 sensor
  • Loop Recording with up to 256gb of Storage Space
  • Parking Motion Sensor to Auto Detect Collusions
Coming in as a very close second is the Rexing V1. I picked this dash camera because it met all criteria for being an affordable unit.
 
Being only half the price of the #1 above, Rexing V1 is a discreet camera that can mount anywhere on your windshield. Its small size allows it to blend in with the background, making it less of a target against theft.
 
The video recording runs through a wide-angle lens in 1080p at 30 frames per second. Adjust this camera to point forward and you’ll have 170 degrees of viewing area on a 2.4″ LCD screen.
 
Due to its dynamic range, it can perform quite well in any lighting situation. Thanks to the Sony IMX323 image sensor, you can get decent quality video at night.
 
A few other notable features this unit has are: Loop recording using 3, 5, or 10 minute intervals, up to 256gb of storage, and a G-Sensor to detector impact (when parked).
 
This car dash camera is the most popular and well-known on this list, with over 7,000 reviews!

KEY FEATURES:

  • Adjustable 170 degree Lens
  • Records Up To 1080p at 30fps
  • G-Sensor for Impact Detection (when parked)
  • Great Price Point
  • Low-Profile Design

#3. ROAV AK-R2241311

A small package and a ton of features awaits you. The ROAV windshield mounted dash camera is a budget friendly option for everyone. While many can claim to be “budget” friendly and “full of features”, few can deliver on both at the same time. ROAV seems to have delivered a product that can impress for a lot less.
 
The design of this dash camera is simple by its front facing camera and rear LCD screen. When you turn it on, you’ll have the ability to pair it to the ROAV app and see current saved video clips. In addition, the camera also has built-in WiFi which lets you transfer and download files between the device and your computer.
 
Recording quality is reasonable with 1080p at 30fps. You can store up to 128gb of video using an external SD card (high-class cards recommended) in looped intervals.
 
In the even you park your car and someone bumps into you, this dash cam got you covered using the built-in G-Sensor.
 
With all its features, this is one of the best value dash cameras you can buy. The #3 spot is well deserved!

KEY FEATURES:

  • Compatible with the ROAV app
  • 1080p 30fps Recording Quality
  • Very Affordable Price Point
  • Integrated WiFi
  • Up to 128gb of Video Storage (SD card)

#4. AUKEY DR02

For something that looks like #2 on this list, its the AUKEY DR02 dash cam. This small windshield mounted dash camera has an easy layout. Unlike with others which use suction cups, this one mounts using double sided sticky tape.
 
Once mounted, you’ll see the adjustable lens which can give you a leveled view of the the front of your vehicle.
 
While its not the most expensive unit on this list (far from it), it does have reasonable specs such as 1080p HD recording, 170 degree field of view, and more.
 
Like any other dash cam, it will record in loops and store up to 128gb of video. When I mentioned the video quality earlier, you can choose between 1080p (30fps), 720p (60fps), and 720p (30fps). It’s recommended that you use the highest quality setting possible to ensure in an emergency, every detail is visible.
 
In a nutshell, it would be a great choice if you want something to be “low-key” after installation. There’s good enough specs where it’s worth the price.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Can Store Up To 128gb of Video
  • Recording Quality Up To 1080p (30fps)
  • Reasonable Price
  • Low-Profile When Installed
  • Can Be Compatible with GPS
  • Adjustable Front Lens

#5. BlackVue DR900S-2CH

This is by far the most expensive dash camera on our list. The BlackVue DR900S-2CH is like the BMW of the dash camera world. This is exactly what you need if you want FULL coverage of your automobile, from front to back… in EXCELLENT detail.
 
Immediately you’ll notice the front facing camera that is bigger than the rear one. The main camera can record at up to 4K resolution at 30 fps, while the rear one can do FULL 1080p HD at 60fps.
 
Aside from the front and rear camera setups, you will also get the FULL package which makes it one of the best car security cameras on the market. Things such as GPS, which enable you to tag videos and know their exact locations upon recording. Wi-Fi for when you want to connect pair-up your phone and check your recordings. Built-In Impact and Motion Detection for when you aren’t in your car but still need absolute insurance.
 
Those are the highlights of this camera system. While you are paying hundreds of dollars, it can pay for itself quite fast in case you have an emergency. The great video quality and cloud access to videos the camera recorded make it one of the more convenient kits.
 

KEY FEATURES:

  • Dual Camera Setup with 4K in Front and 1080p in Back
  • Built-In GPS and WiFi
  • Built-In Motion and Impact Detection
  • Has a Compatible Cloud Storage Service
  • Includes a 16gb SD card (supports up to 128gb)

#6. Z-Edge T4-001

When I first came across this brand, I didn’t know what to think of it. I’ve never heard of Z-Edge anywhere, yet this dash camera is a great hit. Coming in as #6 on the list is the Z-Edge T4-001 dash cam.
 
Much like #5 on the list (above), Z-Edge managed to “on-up” BlackVue by the much more affordable price. Aside from not needing an app to view videos, Z-Edge made it super simple to navigation throughout your existing ones. The large 4″ inch LCD display is an actual touch screen which makes it a breeze to swipe and select.
 
The front and rear facing cameras can record videos (combined) in 1080p at 30fps. When the rear camera disconnects and only the front one is working, the quality goes up to 1440p at 30fps.
 
Mounting both is quite simple. The front one uses a suction cup, while the rear one uses double sided tape.
 
As a package, you get front and back cameras, good video quality, easy to use controls, and everything else you’d need for an installation.
 
A complete package in every sense!

KEY FEATURES:

  • Records Videos in Front and Back
  • Video Quality Can Go Up To 1440p
  • Large and Easy to Use Touch Screen
  • G-Sensor Built In
  • Impressive Video Quality at Night
  • Includes a 32gb SD Card

#7. VAVA Dash Cam

For one of the most user friendly and featured packed dash cams on the market, I picked VAVA. While strange in its name, it’s far from strange when it comes to doing its main function.
 
RECORD VIDEO.
 
Upon first viewing this camera, the design was off-putting. After coming across it a few times, I decided to look deeper to see what the fuss was all about. It had excellent reviews, the price was reasonable, and there was at least a few useful features.
 
It’s NOT a 360 degree view camera, but it does swivel 360 degrees to record 150 degrees in any direction. It has an impressive 1080p at 60fps camera which is reported to have good night vision.
 
If you download the VAVA app, you can transfer videos/photos and see a live feed from the camera.
 
Unlike 99% of cameras, VAVA provides you with a “remote snapshot button” which can be mounted anywhere in your automobile. Any time you want to snap a photo or record a video, place this button where convenient and click.
 
Since gaining popularity over the last few years, it has become a great value. While it may only be #7 on this list, it’s STILL highly recommended!

KEY FEATURES:

  • Unique Design
  • Camera Swivels 360 Degrees
  • Recording Quality in 1080p at 60fps
  • Wi-Fi Compatible (with App)
  • Supports 128gb Max
  • Good Night Vision Quality

#8. AKASO Trace 1

When the term “all-in-one” is used with technology, it’s almost always a good thing. In the case of the #8 best dash cam, it’s no exception. Have you ever heard of AKASO?
 
I most certainly did not, but from the dozens of dash cameras on the market today… it stood out!
 
Looking just like an action camera (e.g. GoPro), it has a unique design with a front and rear facing camera… on ONE device. This puts it ahead of the competition by not requiring you to hardwire to get 340 degree view of your vehicle.
 
While small, it features high quality cameras capable of recording 1080p at 30fps (rear) and 60fps (front). The infrared night vision lets you record videos at night in great detail.
 
While it doesn’t include an SD card, you can buy one with up to 128gb of space (get class 10 or above).
 
I recommend this unit because of its ability to have so many features in one small package. Grab one of these, you won’t regret it!

KEY FEATURES:

  • Records Videos in Both Directions
  • Video Quality Up To 1080p at 30fps and 60fps
  • Storage Space Up To 128gb
  • Infrared Night Vision
  • G-Sensing for Impact

#9. TOGUARD CE35

Coming in as #9 on this list is a dash camera that takes a different approach. At first glance, almost everyone could get fooled to think you have no recording device in you car.
 
The TOGUARD 7″ mirror dash cam is unlike all the other ones. It disguises itself as a rear-view mirror while at the same time, recording the front and back.
 
While the front looks for action, the rear camera has back-up lines which can give you a rough estimate of how close you are to hitting something.
 
Since it mounts over your factory rear-view mirror, installation is minimal.
 
The unique design of this unit makes the mirror not as reflective to ensure the 7″ LCD touch screen can shine through.
 
You can touch the screen and select between seeing the front, back, both, or none. Record video at up to 1080p in the front and 480p in the back using class 10 Micro SD cards (up to 32gb).
 
For the price, it’s a great alternative to standard dash cameras.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Mounts Over Your Rear-View Mirror
  • Front and Rear Recording Cameras
  • Giant 7″ Inch Touch Screen
  • Reasonable Price

Let's Close, Bottom Line?

You’ve come to the end of this guide, I’d like to say thank you for getting this far. What you read were the 9 best dash cameras that you can buy for your car.
 
From all dash camera reviews, #1 is the one I’d recommend you get over all others. It has the best cost and features of them all. On the flip side with #9, I’d not recommend it as much… but it still made it to this list, so look at it as an alternative camera.
 
Everything in-between is also fair game. Compare them all and see which one works best for you. At the end of the day, buy one if you are certain about and see how it works for you.
 
If there’s one thing to remember, it’s that video resolution is one of the most important aspects of a camera.
