Our favorite dash cam is the Rexing V1P because it works in extreme temperatures and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. It includes all the basic features you’d expect from a dash cam and nothing more. Whether you want footage to file with insurance claims or you’re hoping to record a viral clip, the Rexing V1P gets the job done.

If you do want a bunch of extra features, there’s really no “all-in-one” dash cam available. Each one has a unique selling point. We’ll break down the differences to help you make a decision.

Don't forget a card reader

It’s much easier to transfer dash cam footage to another device with a card readerthan with a mobile app.

Best car dash cam reviews

1. Rexing V1P: Best overall

The Rexing V1P clinches the top spot thanks to its affordable price, ultra-wide viewing angle, unbeatable temperature tolerance, and optional suction mount. If you’re looking for some extra features, you’ll want to skip down the list; the Rexing V1P is affordable because it’s “just” a dash cam.

Pro Heading

Pros

Pro BulletFront and rear dash cams
Pro BulletG-sensor
Pro BulletAdhesive with optional suction mount
Pro Bullet in. LCD screen
Pro BulletUS-based customer service
Con Heading

Cons

Con BulletGPS logger sold separately
Con BulletSD card sold separately
Con BulletPoor app performance

Like most of the dash cams on our list, the Rexing V1P features both a front- and rear-facing camera. Both record in p at 30 fps, have a ° viewing angle, and use wide dynamic range (WDR) technology and a Sony Starvis image sensor for improved night vision. The front camera also features an LCD screen.

The G-sensor automatically locks clips when it detects an impact—a standard feature to prevent important video footage from being deleted or overwritten. But we love that the Rexing V1P also allows you to manually lock footage by pushing the “OK” button on the camera while recording. So if something unexpected happens while you’re out and about, you can save that clip.

Necessary and optional accessories for the Rexing V1P

The Rexing V1P’s low price comes with a caveat: you’ll need to purchase some accessories for full functionality.

A microSD card isn’t included with the camera kit, so you’ll need to purchase one separately. The Rexing V1P accepts cards with up to GB of storage, like the SanDisk High Endurance MicroSD (about $38 on Amazon).

These accessories are optional:

  • The Rexing GPS logger (about $27 on Amazon) pairs information about your location and speed with all of your dash-cam footage.
  • The Rexing Smart Hardwire Kit (about $30 on Amazon) allows you to activate Parking Surveillance Mode and automatic ignition recording.
  • The Rexing Suction Cup Mount(about $10 on Amazon) may provide a sturdier grip in hot weather than the standard adhesive mount.

You’re looking at a total of about $ if you purchase the Rexing V1P, a GB microSD card, and all three accessories. That still makes it the second-cheapest option on our top five list.

Light Bulb

Just want one camera?

You can get just the front-facing Rexing V1 camera for $

The Rexing V1P’s supercapacitor makes it far more temperature tolerant than lithium battery-powered or hardwired dash cams. That’s one of the main reasons we love it so much. It’s rated for a jaw-dropping °F to °F. To put this into perspective, parking your car in the sun on a °F day for just one hour causes the dashboard to reach °F.1

It’s not always practical to park in a garage or in the shade to keep the internal temp down. It’s also pointless to remove the camera when the car is parked because you want the camera to record an accident when you’re not around.

Let’s just put it this way: temperature tolerance is important in dash cams, but it’s not as common as you might think.

Thumbs Up

Unique feature alert

The Rexing V1P boasts the highest operating temperature of all the dash cams on our list.

Rexing Connect app needs an overhaul

The Rexing V1P won us over with those temp specs and wooed us even more with an industry-leading ° viewing angle. But as much as we hoped the Rexing would be the dash cam of our dreams . . . its mobile app isn’t quite perfect.

This free app lets you adjust a few settings like G-sensor sensitivity and the date stamp on videos. You can also use it to look at video clips and transfer them to your device via Wi-Fi. That’s where, according to most reviewers, the app just doesn’t work. 

Rexing Connect earned just out of 5 stars on the Apple App Store and a meager out of 5 stars on the Google Play store. Most complain about transfer/download issues. We’re concerned that Rexing has amassed so many poor app reviews and still hasn’t released an update, fix, or troubleshooting tip.  

Rexing dash cams also work with a third-party app called TimaCam, but its ratings aren’t much better: on the Google Play store and on the Apple App Store.*

One reviewer did mention that you have to turn your phone’s cellular data off in order to download the videos. If that’s all it takes, the app developers should make that clear. If you’re among the unlucky users who can’t get the app to work, you can still transfer videos from the Rexing V1P to a computer with a card reader or USB cord.

New for Rexing V5

We also like Rexing's new V5 dash cam, which includes an in-cabin camera, voice control, and 4K resolution. It costs around $ to purchase the front, in-cabin, and rear cameras.

2. Thinkware U Best for driver assistance

The Thinkware Uis the bulkiest dash camera on our list, but we can easily overlook that thanks to its high video quality (4K/2K) and advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS). The mobile app also sounds promising, but we question the practicality of its Wi-Fi-dependent features.

Its price also jumped about $ since we initially wrote this review, but we think it's still worth the investment.

The Thinkware U does its primary job very well: it records clear footage day and night, catching important details about car accidents, including license plate numbers. The front-facing camera records in 4K at 30 fps or in 2K at 60 fps. The rear camera records in 2K at 30 fps. 

This dash cam also includes driver-assistance features:

  • Forward collision warning system to alert drivers before they rear-end the vehicle in front of them
  • Urban forward collision warning system to alert drivers to road hazards in low-speed environments (such as snail’s pace traffic jams)
  • Front vehicle departure warning to tell drivers that the car ahead of them has taken off. (It’s the friendly version of getting honked at by the driver behind you.)
  • Lane departure warning system to help drivers avoid drifting into another lane

And, if that’s not nifty enough, the Thinkware U also warns you about upcoming red lights so you don’t run through them. It will even give you a heads up about speed cameras lurking in the distance.

The ° front and ° rear viewing angles on this camera aren’t bad, but they’re also not the widest you can find on the market.

The same goes for the Thinkware U’s temperature tolerance. It can be stored in temps up to °F but has to cool down to °F before it operates. If you live in a hot climate, this could be a dealbreaker. 

Thinkware U accessories

The Thinkware U is a high-quality dash camera by itself, but these accessories can boost it even more.

  • Up to GB microSD card (about $22 on Amazon) for additional clip storage. The Thinkware U dual dash cam comes with a 32 GB card, but some users have found this to be insufficient; 4K UHD video files are quite large.
  • Thinkware U Radar Accessory (about $90 on Amazon) for enhanced protection in parking mode. This device detects “car-sized” motion and signals the dash cam to turn on and start recording, thus conserving its energy and allowing it to remain in parking mode for a longer time. Unfortunately, it’s incompatible with the mobile app.
  • The Thinkware iVolt Mini External Dash Cam Battery(about $ on Amazon) allows both front and rear cameras to stay in parking mode for 16 hours. It fully recharges in 45 minutes once the car’s ignition turns on.
Thumbs Up

Unique feature alert

The Thinkware U is the only dash cam on our list with lane assist and other advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) alerts.

The Thinkware Cloud app doesn’t deliver

A smartphone app called Thinkware Cloud acts like your LCD screen on this screenless dash cam, allowing you to review video clips, create geofence alerts, change settings, and even remotely view the cam’s live feed. 

There’s one major catch: you can’t view the live feed when the camera is parked. In fact, connecting the radar accessory disables all of the app’s functions. Huh? 

The dash cam also has to connect to your phone’s Wi-Fi signal (or hotspot connection) to send notifications to your phone. That means you’ll only get notifications if you’re near the car, and that isn’t convenient at all. Surely a cellular connection makes more sense. 

We’re not the only ones scratching our heads. Thinkware Cloud has received just out of 5 stars on the Apple App Store and stars on the Google Play store.*

*Ratings as of 8/24/

This Chortau dash cam retails for about $ and, as you might expect for that price, offers basic functionality. It supports memory cards with just 32 GB of storage, but the camera locks footage that coincides with an impact for overwrite protection. If you end up with a lot of locked footage, you'll have to download it often to reset the memory card.

We like the industry-leading ° lens on the front-facing camera, but the ° angle on the rear-facing camera is relatively narrow compared to competitors. You can see footage from both cameras simultaneously on the three-inch LCD screen. Both cameras record in p and can tolerate temperatures up to °F.

Chortau GPS logger sold in separate bundle

One of the reasons the Chortau dash cam is relatively affordable is its lack of a GPS logger. Without this accessory, your videos won't have coordinates or vehicle speed stamped on the footage. 

We couldn't find the GPS logger sold on its own. It seems the only way to purchase it is to buy it as a bundle with the front and rear dash cams. 

You may also need to purchase an extension cable to connect the rear dash cam to the power supply in larger vehicles.

Keep looking if you want a dash cam that connects to your smartphone. There's no companion app for Chortau dash cams. Don't forget to grab a card reader to download clips.

4. Rove RK Dash Cam: Best for voice control

A front-facing dash cam, the Rove RK records in 4K with a ° lens. It has built-in Wi-Fi for fast video uploading. But if you'd rather use local storage, the Rove supports a whopping GB microSD card, which you'll have to buy separately.

Top 10 Best Car Dash Cams

Want to know which is the best dash cam? Well, good news, we've tested dozens of dash cams to find the best, and give you the most reliable recommendation out there. There's also a short answer and a long answer, so strap in and come along for the ride.

The short answer is that the Nextbase GW is the best dash cam you can currently buy. 

The GW is a hugely impressive dash cam, which not only nails the basics (such as recording outstanding image quality and solid smartphone connectivity), but also offers features never before seen in a dash cam, such as Alexa voice control and What3Words integration. All in all, it's a very compelling dash cam package!

The Garmin Dash Cam 66W is a very close second, offering a slimmer, more stylish design than the Nextbase, but inferior image quality and less useful safety features, or, if you're looking for an invisible dash cam, which sits discreetly behind your rearview mirror, check out the Thinkware F

If you're looking for the best budget dash cam, try the Nextbase

The long answer involves how you plan to use the dash cam, what specific features might be useful to you, and different options to suit your budget.

Whichever dash cam you choose, you'll want to also read our guide on fitting a dash cam, as well as checking the best cheap dash cam deals available out there.

If you're looking for dash cams that specifically record rearward-facing video as well as forward-facing video, then you should read our guide to the best front and read dash cams, which record 2-channels of video.

How to choose the best dash cam for you

You want at least p recording, p doesn't quite cut the mustard, and while 4K is a nice option to have, the file sizes are very large and older computers will struggle to play them.

Next, you'll have to decide whether you want a dash cam with a screen or a model without. Dash cams with screens are easier to set up and view footage on, but ones without screens are a lot less intrusive. Both are useful, but we'd choose one with a screen for occasional recording (track days and scenic drives), but one without a screen setup and forget about for everyday driving.

Mounting type is also important. Most stick on the windscreen with a suction mount, the same a sat nav, whereas some more permanent cams have sticky 3M mounts. 

The key feature to look out for is a Wi-Fi smartphone connection, this makes it so much easier to view, download and share footage. 

There are also gimmicks such as lane departure and forward collision warning – while these are potentially interesting inclusions, in practice, they don't work very well, so shouldn't sway you're buying decision.

One feature which isn't a gimmick is GPS – this allows the car to record your speed and direction of travel, which could be used as extra evidence in an insurance case.

It's also important to note, that while these are battery-powered, we've found they all have minuscule, sub-thirty-minute battery lives. That means they're going to require a power cable. 

All companies include a charger that plugs into your car's cigarette lighter, while some offer kits which allow you to hardwire the dash cam into your car's fusebox.

1. Nextbase GW

Quite simply, the King of Dash Cams in

Specifications

Camera: 4K

Field of view: °

Screen: 3-inch HD touch screen

GPS: Yes

Reasons to buy

+Outstanding image quality+Alexa built-in+What3Words integration+Compact mount

Reasons to avoid

-App is clunky-Relatively large unit

Don't view this as merely a replacement for the previous range-topping GW, the latest dash cam from Nextbase boasts much-improved video quality, improved stabilisation and the inclusion of some rather clever What3Words geolocation services and a bunch of Amazon Alexa Skills.

Plump for the 4K at 30fps video resolution and the resulting footage isn't too far off today's leading action cameras, proving incredibly detailed, vibrant and smooth when viewed on a laptop or PC.

Even in poor lighting, it's easy to pick out details and features, while a special Super Slow-Mo mode (p at fps) means it is now easier than ever to read registration plates on fast-moving vehicles. 

A built-in polarising filter on the front of the camera can be rotated to reduce glare from windscreens, while digital image stabilisation is another first for the dash cam market and helps smooth out those bumps and shakes caused by potholes and poor road surfaces.

Like its GW sibling, this model can be controlled via the voice with Alexa Skills, but it requires the accompanying smartphone app to work, which isn’t the best. Despite new dual GHz + 5GHz Wi-Fi, it still has trouble connecting with phones to transfer images and video clips.

Thankfully the 3-inch rear touchscreen is crisp, clear and very easy to use, while the inclusion of What3Words is clever, as it can alert the emergency and breakdown services of an exact location, even when there is no Wi-Fi or mobile data available.

Easy to set up, sleekly packaged and a doddle to operate, the Nextbase GW is our top pick, doing everything that's required of a dash cam and doing it well, but also offers some useful additional features.

2. Garmin Dash Cam 66W

Sleek design, high-quality video and a wide-angle lens

Specifications

Camera: p

Field of view: °

Screen: 3-inch HD touch screen

GPS: Yes

Reasons to buy

+Subtle, compact design+Good video quality+Easy to mount+Extra-wide field of view

Reasons to avoid

-Video and app can't match Nextbase-Runs quite hot-Voice controls inaccurate 

This fantastic little dash cam from Garmin earns second place on this list with good image quality, a number of extra features, and actually quite attractive design. It's one of the most compact cameras here (so takes up less windscreen space) and resembles a GoPro, making it the most attractive as well. That might seem like a funny thing to say, but it won't look out of place in a Range Rover or Mercedes, while others on this list will.

Despite being small the Garmin 66 manages to pack in plenty of extra features, such as GPS and smartphone integration with the Garmin Virb app. There's also Lane Departure and Forward Collision warning, as well as Speed Camera warnings. The former two are somewhat less useful than the later. 

The video footage is great as well. Recording in p with an ultra-wide degree field of view. The video quality might not be as good at the Nextbase GW, but it's good enough.

The mount is excellently designed, with a small 3M magnet mount making removal and placement of the dash cam incredibly easy. The downside is the slightly fiddly menu system, which is controlled by four buttons on the side, and the inconsistent voice control.

3. Thinkware F Pro

Almost invisible design, video quality good, and night mode very impressive

Specifications

Camera: p Full HD

Field of view: °

Screen: No Screen

GPS: Yes

Reasons to buy

+Non-intrusive design+Parking and Night Modes+Cloud features interesting

Reasons to avoid

-App and connectivity issues-It's there almost permanently

The Thinkware F is probably the dash cam that we've used for the longest amount of time – mainly because it's so low profile you just forget about it (which is kind of what you want with these devices).

The F is fixed to your car windscreen with sticky 3M tape, and, as there's no screen, you can essentially hide it behind the rear view mirror. We think that's the best place for them.

The F comes with GPS tracking, lifetime safety camera and speed alerts, as well as Safety Warnings such as forward collision and lane departure awareness. Although, while these are marginally useful on dash cameras with screens, they are zero use without a screen.

The HD video quality is good, and the night mode (now on its second generation) is very impressive (it's surprisingly sharp and there's next to no noise). There's built-in Wi-Fi so you can connect to your smartphone, although, we did experience some connection issues, and it looks very dated. 

Time Lapse Mode which records your parked car for hours. That's great if you're worried about the vehicle being vandalised while left at night.

That final feature requires the camera to be hardwired into the car. We think that's what you'd want to do with the Thinkware. It's not too difficult and also the neatest looking option, freeing up the 12V port.

The most interesting capability bundled in with the F Pro is Thinkware's new Cloud service. This includes the ability to get notified when your car leaves a geofenced area, or when an impact occurs to your vehicle. You can also use it to locate your vehicle when parked.

These are potentially very useful features, but we found it very difficult to get them working, and from reading other online reviews, we're not the only ones.

If you like the low profile design of the F Pro, but require even better video quality, then you should read our review of the Q Pro, which records at 2K resolution.

4. Nextbase GW

An amazing dash cam, especially considering the price

Specifications

Field of view:: °

Screen:: 3-inch HD touch screen

GPS:: Yes

Reasons to buy

+Outstanding image quality+Alexa built-in+Emergency SOS+Compact mount+Good price

Reasons to avoid

-Menu UI looks dated

The GW is a massively impressive dash cam, which not only nails the basics (such as recording outstanding image quality), but also offers features never before seen in a dash cam.

It’s the first dash cam available in the UK with Alexa built-in, so you can play music, find parking, control smart home devices and make calls whenever you want, without taking your eyes off the road. We found it surprisingly useful.

There’s also impressive safety features, such as Emergency SOS, which will alert the emergency services to your location in the event of an accident. This feature is potentially lifesaving, and is one of the main reasons we rate it as the best dash cam in

That's not all, however, the GW also packs an 'Intelligent Parking Mode' that records any bump or physical movement on the vehicle when left unattended.

It's not just the impressive list of features that means this is the best dash cam, however, as we previously mentioned, the Nextbase GW is also a master when it comes to the basics. It records incredibly crisp, perfectly lit p video, the Click&Go mount is a really neat solution, and its smartphone app, MyNextbase, is the most polished experience we've encountered. 

5. Mio MiVue J60

A discrete dash cam with an impressive feature set

Specifications

Camera: p Full HD

Field of view: °

Screen: No Screen

GPS: Yes

Reasons to buy

+Compact mount+Can be hidden behind mirror+GPS+Affordable

Reasons to avoid

-Mini USB power

The Mio MiVue J60 is a really neat little device, with a compact body which manages to squeeze in a lot of technology. 

It's the sleek design that's key here, as the shape of the camera and small mount means it'll sit discreetly behind your rear view mirror. Despite its small size, the MiVue J60 has a sensor capable of capturing sharp p footage at 30 frames per second with a wide degree viewing-angle.

It's got a dedicated night mode as well, which ensures registration plates and small details are captured in most lighting conditions.

The J60 not only captures clear video; it also features Wi-Fi, for video playback and updating camera settings via a smartphone app; as well as GPS, which tracks your vehicle's location and speed.

The MiVue J60 is packed full of safety features (although, you know what we think about those) including Advanced Driving Assistance System, Lane Departure Warning System, Forward Collision Warning System and Fatigue Alert.

If you decide to have these on (they can be turned off through the app) the dash cam will emit a beep if you start to drift over road markings or go over the speed limit.

The device also comes with safety camera data, and free data updates for the lifetime of the device, so drivers can avoid any dreaded speeding fines. That's potentially very useful, depending on your driving style.

6. Garmin Dash Cam Mini

Without doubt the smallest dash cam we've reviewed

Specifications

Camera: p Full HD

Field of view: °

Screen: No Screen

GPS: No

Reasons to buy

+Tiny design+Quick release mount+Distraction free+Affordable

If you’re looking for the smallest dash cam possible, then you'll want the Garmin Dash Cam Mini, which really is tiny, and will fit comfortably out of sight behind you rear view mirror.

Of course, the small size does mean the Garmin Dash Cam Mini is a pretty barebones device, it does exactly what you expect it to, and no more. There are no extra features here, and it lacks GPS, but it does record excellent p footage, and it's very simple to use.

We found it very easy to set up and use, and for under £ / US$, we think it's difficult to fault.

This dash cam from Nextbase represents excellent value for money

Specifications

Camera: p Full HD

Reasons to buy

+Low price+Full HD p video+Parking Mode+Compact mounting

The Nextbase is a well-priced and smartly designed dash cam which gets the basics right. It is small enough to fit neatly behind your rear view mirror, has a good-sized screen for adjusting settings and viewing recorded video, and comes with a smart magnetic mount.

Those wanting more from their dash cams - like Bluetooth, GPS, driver assistance features and a more useful parking mode - will want to look elsewhere, but in doing so they will invariably spend more. If you want a simple, no-fuss dash cam with Full HD video recording, the Nextbase is a solid option.

8. Mio MiVue C

A great Full HD dash cam with GPS for super cheap!

Specifications

Camera: p Full HD

Reasons to buy

+Affordable+Small+Fully featured with full HD video

Reasons to avoid

-Large mount-Not so good at night

If you want to test the dash cam waters before jumping in, this affordable model from Mio is a great place to start. 

The MiVue C will begin filming in p at 30 frames per second as soon as you start your car. Video quality is good, although, obviously not as good as the more expensive options on this list.

The C comes with plenty of extra features, including safety camera warnings and built-in GPS tracking. That's particularly impressive, given the price.

The only thing that really lets this camera down is the night mode – it's not great, so if you a lot of night driving this one isn't for you.

9. Viofo A Pro Duo

A superb value 4K front and rear cam package

Specifications

Camera: 4K

Reasons to buy

+Long lasting batteries+Night vision+Parking Mode

Reasons to avoid

-Small screen-Relatively unknown brand

It's highly unlike you've heard of Viofo but that's no reason to dismiss it, because its 4K resolution Pro Duo model represents phenomenal value for money. It's no way near as sleek as some of its more recognisable rivals but this package comes with both front and rear cameras.

That does mean plenty of trailing wires  to stash underneath headliners but it also adds further peace of mind for all-round coverage. There's the option of glorious 4K ( x p) video recording up front, with the resulting footage offering a great amount of details and Wide Dynamic Range for rich colours in all weather conditions.

The fact that you get night vision, a parking mode, motion detection, automatic emergency recording, GPS tracking and dual channel p for under £ / US$ makes this a package well worth considering if you cover a lot of miles and want total camera coverage that doesn’t cost a small fortune.

Reasons to avoid

-Fiddly to use-Lots of setting up

Much like the Viofo that precedes this camera, the Zenfox T3 is a little-known name in the dash cam game but it claims to have professional drivers covered by its excellent three-channel recording.

This consists of an interior camera mounted to the standard windscreen camera unit, as well as an individual rear camera to cover everything that is going on behind the vehicle.

Easy access to awesome Sony image sensors and the latest video processing chips means the resulting footage is largely excellent and on a par with many cameras on this list. Crisp, high-quality 4K footage can be selected at 30fps, with resulting imagery featuring plenty of detail and good colour handling.

An infrared interior camera is also a neat touch for those professional drivers wanting to capture the cabin but it is the peripheral bits the Zenfox doesn't quite get right. The buttons are fiddly to use and the overall build quality is very bulky and cheap to touch. Still, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

The Garmin 55 is a fantastic little dash cam which is more compact and stylish than most others on the market. It offers good video quality, voice control, and convenient driver assistant features.

It's slightly older than others on this list, but that means you can get an excellent dash cam for a great price.

Footage is high-quality and saved in one-minute chunks. Time, date, speed and location are included (each of these can be turned off), as is a microphone, providing you vital screechy information. There’s also Bluetooth, and driver-assistance features such as lane-departure and forward-collision warnings, while Go Alert tells phone-gawpers that the traffic’s moving.

The degree, 5MP camera gives a great view of junctions – most are degree – and its images are crisp. Constant-loop recording means you never miss a thing, and ‘event’ clips are saved to a folder on the 8GB card.
