Dash cams have become almost a necessity in Australia, since they give you the evidence you need if you’re in a car accident or need to contest a speeding ticket. They can also help to capture everything that goes on if you’re unfairly treated by law enforcement and can help to reduce your insurance premium.

But as with anything in the world of tech, some dash cams and in car cameras will be better than others, which is why we’ve sorted through the huge selection to determine the best dash cams Australia has to offer.

What to look for when buying a dashcam

Dashcams are constantly evolving, which is why you need to know what features to look for before buying one.

Viewpoints

Some dashcams offer the extra protection of a rear-facing camera, along with the forward-facing one on the front. This can help to provide evidence if someone rear-ends you, and they claim you slammed on your brakes, for example.

Image Quality

You’ll also want to make sure your dash cam has HD (High-Definition) recording as a minimum for clearer images. Some dash cams have 4K recording for even clearer images. You also want to make sure your dashcam performs well at nighttime, just in case you get into a car accident when the sun goes down.

Viewing Angle

The viewing angle is also important to take note of: the larger the field of the view, the more area the dash cam can record.

Storage

The majority of dashcams will store video data on an SD card, so be sure you know which type of card you need when buying your dashcam. Naturally, the higher the amount of storage, the more video content you can record. You’d hate to run out of storage, only to then get into an accident and have no evidence.

Smart Features

Some dash cams now have the ability to work via voice control too, meaning you can ask it to play music, read the news or check the weather, with results returned on your smartphone. It might seem a little gimmicky, but could be a genuinely useful feature.
