We review dash cameras and give recommendations based on our hands on testing.
To quickly learn what we think is the best budget and premium cameras for 2017 see our two video guides:
Z-Edge S3 and S4 – There Are Better Choices
February 21, 2018
We were initially excited by the great video specs and the strong reputation Z-Edge has for customer service but ultimately we ruled both cameras out as viable options. They have limited availability outside of the USA, are more expensive and less heat-resistant than other options on the market.
Viofo WR1 – A Small and Heat-Resistant Dash Cam
January 19, 2018
After fully testing the Viofo WR-1 we think it’s a good choice for people who want a small, heat-resistant camera that can rotate 360°. However, the WR-1 isn’t our first choice for most drivers unless you want it’s compactness and full coverage. Find out what we think of this camera.
Yi 2.7K – Not Great Value?
January 5, 2018
We took a deeper look at the Yi 2.7K Ultra Dash camera. It has one of the highest available resolutions in dash cameras right now. It also has voice control functions and great app functionality. Unfortunately, it’s not a good pick for warm weather because of the battery. Overall it’s improvements don’t justify it’s $100 price tag.
The Best Dual Channel Dash Cameras
November 7, 2017
We have tested a number of dual channel dash cameras and came up with our TOP 3 choices for most drivers. These cameras record not only the front, but also the rear of your vehicle. Having a rear camera could prove to be very useful as it is a great extra insurance if you get in tailgating accident or you are a victim of road rage. Read the Article Here
Anker Roav Reviewed – Not Good in Hot Weather
September 28, 2017
We tested one of the most popular cameras in the market – the Anker Roav. The Roav is not a bad buy for those who live in a cooler climate. It has a unique parking mode which is handy for people who don’t want to hardwire their camera. See our video to learn what we think about this camera.
Best $60 Dash Camera for Warm Weather
August 22, 2017
After testing many budget dash cameras we think the Viofo G1W-S is the best option for drivers living in warm enviornments and don’t have money for our $100 upgrade pick the Viofo A119.
Dash Cameras for Uber, Taxi, and Lyft Drivers
July 10th, 2017
After 100+ hours of research and testing we came up with 4 cameras for taxi and ridesharing drivers we recommend from budget to premium models. If you move passengers professionally, these cameras are for you.
Dash Camera Problems & Solutions
July 4th, 2017
After reviewing 20+ cameras we get many questions on common problems with the cameras we recommend. We’re launching a new resouce to hopefully answer some of the questions on how to fix your camera and get it running.
Thinkware F770 Dual Channel Review Launched
Nov 24th, 2016
We think Thinkware’s F770 is a pricey, albeit great front and back dash camera. Great for parked recording and a new body made specifically for North America to be more stealthy. Read more here.
Parking Mode Guide Released
Sept 14, 2016
I get a lot of questions about capturing vandals or hit and runs in parking lots. Here’s a guide on which dash cameras to pick, hardwiring equipment and installation.
Viofo A119 Review
August 1, 2016
The Viofo A119 is now our top value dash camera for it’s combination of stealthiness, capacitor design which increases reliability and great video quality. If I could only pick one camera to recommend, it would be the Viofo A119.
New SD Card Guide Launched
July 11, 2016
Choosing the right SD card for your dash camera can greatly improve reliability. We let you know what’s important.
Yi Dash Camera Reviewed
May 29th, 2016
We review Yi Technology (XiaoMi) first dash camera and we’re a big fan. It’s a great camera for most drivers.
Garmin 20, Papago GS200 and Transcend DP200 Reviewed
February 22, 2016
We looked at 3 name-brand models: Garmin 20, Papago GoSafe 200 and Transcend DrivePro 200. You’ve probably seen them at places like Best Buy.
These aren’t new cameras but are still popular and will serve as a good comparison for future reviews.

Ran into this gentleman on Christmas evening (ignore date stamp). Nice guy but clearly misguided on the rules of the road. I couldn’t believe his explanation! Read more below on damages and the camera used.
Total accident damage – $1500 in parts, $1500 in labour. Overall glad there was no injuries and everyone returned to their family dinners that night shortly after this video was taken.
