What to Look For in a Dash Cam
Types of Dash Cameras (Cam) Here are three very “catch it all”, types of Dash Cams that view and record
- Dash Camera Only, viewing and recording forward scenery and events (like fender’s love with another vehicle)
- Dash Camera with viewing and recording forward and GPS enhanced road mapping system of where you would like to go, just put in a destination into your Auto Dash Camera and catching it all as you go.
- Dash Camera with forward and reverse camera viewing. I could use the back camera one, maybe next time around. This records all forward scenery and events but also allows you to see objects behind you when backing up. Like when someone has pulled up too far in the parking stall behind you that you are backing up into. I never have and will never like that little bumper bump action behind me. Should make an Eye Appointment, that wouldn’t hurt me to do so, just saying.
Dash Cam View Points
- Power Supply of 12 volts, either by plugging into your cigarette or (cigar) lighter or USB port located inside the cockpit of your vehicle. Now just keeping in mind that most USB ports may shut down 12 volts to your device when the ignition key is shut or turned off. I am thinking there will be a cure for plummeting power issues, soon from the big-boy manufacturers.
- Incident Recordings, triggered by an impact or motion detection to your vehicle while parked at rest, by alarming the impact sensors within the Dash Cam. Rock and Roll is caught all the time.
- Continuous Loop Recording will save video recordings for specified intervals before being overwritten. You can use the save information button to hold video recordings you don’t want to be overwritten. The normal, with Dash Cams, is they will overwrite older recordings when they run out of space.
- Self-Powered Recording will allow you to set the dash-cam, to how long you want it to run on the 12-volt power supply before shutting it is self-down.
- A Decent View of Field Width, you will catch more action and what’s happening around you, If one goes for the 120 to 140-degree fields of view.
- Day and Night Video Recording, watch for nighttime quality that is available in various brands and models. Not all Dash Cams are equal in performance. Just speaking out of the dark here.
- Cloud Storage is also available with some dash cams. Allowing you to upload to the cloud your recorded videos to be looked at again later
- Dash Cam Boasting Features, like front and rear multi-lens coverage, 720 HD up to 1080 HD and beyond to the 4K capturing it all mode. I have already mentioned the night vision feature, well how about the installed WIFI and Blue Tooth perks to some models of Dash Cams? Hey, that’s hands free-no phone in hand and no ticket from highway patrolmen/women.
- Voice-Activated Technology, not sure I need another voice to be present in my vehicle cockpit, Good at times, and maybe not so good at other times, depending on the crowd control within one’s vehicle at a given time.
- Dash Cams are Providing to be that extra set of eyes that ride along with you on your journeys, that show the truth when a driving incident happens during the daytime and in the evening and also while your vehicle may be just resting at the curb or in the confines of a shopping mall. Shop on, your GPS – Dash Cam, Recorder is catching it all.
Is left with your decision. Research to find out what your needs will be, from simple use of Dash Cams for rear-view mirrors to high-tech units. They are out there waiting to be installed on your Dashboard or Windshield – to catch it all. ======> Dash Cam Review Here
