CAR EXPERTS have revealed the best three dash cams on the market that could save drivers thousands of pounds.
A good dash cam is capable of producing high-quality video to help prove what actually happened in the case of a crash or to protect drivers from false claims.
Handily, car experts at Auto Express have revealed the top three dashcams for your vehicle.
They say that the most important feature of any dash camera is to capture clear footage in a wide variety of weather and light conditions.
To test this, they drove in bright sunlight and at night, while each dash cam had to capture registration numbers clearly in all conditions.
Before thinking of purchasing any of the following dash cams, drivers should bear in mind that some have an SD card included in the package which will save you between £10 and £20.
1. Ring RSDC3000
The best camera according to Auto Express is the Ring RSDC3000, which costs £85.
They say that it’s their top choice due to its low price, the quality of the footage – and because it also includes an SD card.
2. Nextbase 622GW
In terms of footage quality, the Nextbase 622GW is still the benchmark for dash cams as it has the clearest images in all conditions.
The 622GW also has interesting – if gimmicky – extra features included, such as What3Words location data and Alexa voice activation.
However, its price has increased by £30 and now costs £250 plus the memory card.
3. Kenwood DRV A601W
The Kenwood’s range-topping 4K camera almost matches the Nextbase 622GW for footage quality.
But, it can’t repeat the image stabilisation in darker conditions, especially on rougher roads.
It doesn’t include the Nextbase’s Alexa and What3Words functions, but in exchange, it costs less than £200 and includes a 64GB memory card.
And a free app turns your smartphone into a dashcam and can report 21 driving offences to the police.
