Dash cam recommendations

So I want a dash cam but I dont know where to start. If anyone here are using any good quality cameras that shoot at least 720p or higher. Please let me know what you have.

This is the model that reddit constantly recommends. You’ll probably have to do a firmware update, but other than that its fantastic. I’ve had my eye on one of these for a long time.

I use my phone when I feel the need.

Techmoan has quite a few comprehensive dash cam reviews on his youtube channel:

My parents have had a rexxing in both their vehicles in the hot South Carolina summers for two years and they still work great. I bought a highly rated Viofo with a capacitor and it quit working in three days. The replacement lasted a week. I will be going with the rexxing soon, their customer support is pretty good too.

My step dad gave me one that I’ll be installing in my car tomorrow after I do some wiring as I only have one outlet. It’s a Pilot CL-3000wk has loop recording auto motion detection etc etc. Basically all the stuff you want in a dash Cam. I’ll report back with how it does.

Edit: apparently it’s way cheaper than I thought. This could really go either way lmao

@strykerzr350 the results are… pretty meh. functionally it’s great but the video is like an 80’s episode of cops. cant read license plates but it’s functional… I will probably be upgrading myself, can’t complain though. I got this for free. apparently it’s $24 now.

Also my video automatically got a copyright claim LOL
