Which Type of Dash Camera Suits Your Needs?
Not every dash camera will be right for you, and it’s important to do a bit of research before you buy. Single lens dash cameras are mounted on your dashboard and record front-facing footage. They are the easiest to install and are often the most affordable option, but they don’t cover incidents that occur to the side or rear of your vehicle.
Multiple lens cameras cover several angles – front, rear and side – so you’ll have evidence of incidents occurring no matter where your car is hit. Front and rear dash cameras come as one or two units, but can be more difficult to install.
More cameras mean more battery power required, meaning that it may need to be wired directly into your car. These can also be used to record footage from inside the car, useful for ride share services.
