What is a Dash Cam?

Dash cams are an extremely popular car accessory, whether they are used for safety purposes, protection, or just to relive your journey (hence the name journey recorder). Dash cams have multiple beneficial factors and are more than affordable. 

Although the concept seems relatively simple, you may be wondering exactly what a dash cam is, how dash cams work, how dash cams are even installed or if a dash cam can really protect you and your car. Well, that’s why we’re here - to offer some insight on the topic and show you some of the best dash cams we have to offer.

How to install a Dash Cam in your car

With our USB dash cams, installation is easy. Simply plug the dash cam into your car stereo via the USB port and position the camera on your dashboard. Our DVR’s work on a plug-and-play basis so, now that you’ve got your camera where you want it, you’re good to go!

Most of our dash cams have extended fields of view, meaning no matter where you choose to position your cam, you will still benefit from wide-angle coverage. This allows you to ‘hide’ your dash cam, out of your view, whilst still being able to capture plenty of the action.

How does a Dash Cam work?

Once installed, your dash cam will capture all footage in HD video (may vary with product) and record sound, simultaneously. Both video and audio are automatically recorded in an endless loop and saved on a memory card, providing easy access to all video files. (Micro SD card is not included). 

This can be extremely helpful in the event of an accident, for example, one that was not your fault. You will have pre captured footage of your safe driving and in turn easily provide proof you’re not to blame.
