Dash cams are becoming more popular every day and when a product becomes popular, you start seeing a lot of brands from the very inexpensive (some would say cheap) to very expensive (some would say spendy). Today I am taking a look at the Thinkware F750 dash cam which lands in the expensive category with an [...]

We've reviewed a LOT of dash cams over the years, but I think this new dash cam from Pyle is the first one I'd seen that has two cameras. The Pyle Dual Camera & Monitor DVR System fits over your vehicle's existing rearview mirror and has a camera to point out the windshield and one [...]

Dash cameras have historically been more prevalent in many other countries than in the US.  (remember the endless dash-cam footage of the Chelyabinsk meteor in 2013?) Recently, dash-cams are becoming more popular in the States, either to have as an archive in case of an accident or to record a drive you rather not have your insurance company know about. [...]

I have been reluctant to step into the dash cam market because I felt it was too much effort to install one and run the wiring through the car.  Also, I didn't feel like having a camera hanging from my window. When fellow Gadgeteer, Dave, asked if I could review the Papago! GoSafe 268 dash [...]

Dash cams are the type of gadget that once you setup, you hope you never need to use it. That's because they are typically only used after you've had an accident or witnessed some other unusual event while driving. I like having a dash cam in my MINI Cooper because I never know when bigfoot [...]

The other day someone asked me to name my favorite dash cam. I said that it's currently the Magellan MiVue 658 HD dash cam because it has WiFi, GPS and a touchscreen. These are all features that are lacking on the majority of dash cams that are currently on the market. I then followed up [...]

Dash cams are the type of gadgets that you setup and then forget. They are more of an insurance policy than a gadget that you can enjoy on a daily basis. A good dash cam can potentially save you money if you get in an accident. Video footage might help you prove that the accident [...]

About a year ago, I was in a collision caused by a driver who suddenly turned in front of me. I took a lot of pictures, one of which eventually proved that I was not at fault, but a dash cam such as the Yada Dash Road Cam HD would have given the insurance company [...]

Let me start by saying that until I had this system installed, I had never once thought that I would ever want or need a Dashcam.  After several weeks using this ZeroEdge Dual-lens Car Camera , I am very happy that I accepted this opportunity to review this item (and had it professionally installed).  The [...]

Dash cams are one of those gadgets that you setup and forget about until something happens that makes you glad that you have one.  Why would you be glad to have a dash cam? They can be useful for insurance purposes if you have an accident. They might capture something that you would ordinarily never [...]

Dash cams can be pretty useful, or even capture some interesting footage, but consumers are faced with a motley assortment of brands you've probably never heard of before.  Garmin is a name synonymous with quality GPS units, so this time I get to check out the Garmin GDR33 Dash Cam.  Does the Garmin name live up [...]

"But officer, he caused the accident, not me. Really, I swear!" Although you may be telling the truth, you need evidence to back up your claims when it comes to traffic accidents. One way to do that is with a dashcam. Dashcams are windshield mounted cameras that automatically record everything you see out of your [...]

It's a cloudless night with a full moon and you're driving along a deserted road in the middle of nowhere with thick forest on both sides of the road. With the windows rolled down you can hear your tires crunching over the gravel as you drive slowly. The sound almost puts you into a trance but [...]
