Dash-Cam Talk

What you need to know


Technology has come a long way since the start of motoring. Cars can now help you to avoid traffic collisions, take phone calls without handling your phone and thanks to cruise control we can drive long distances without them being a chore. Dash-Cams are the hottest piece of technology to provide you with peace of mind in the event of a collision. Providing you with true footage of what really happened if you were to have an accident. Not only that, they could improve your driving. Assessing the footage allows you to review and make improvements to your driving.

So, you have decided to purchase a Dash-Cam and there are hundreds out there to choose from. We have picked out some key features to look out for when you are deciding on a Dash-Cam:

  • Quality - if your recorded footage is dark and fuzzy it may become unclear to what you can see of the accident. Look for a camera that has a higher resolution and if possible a polarised lens (to help to prevent headlight glare).
  • Reliability - it is important that the camera doesn't fail on you as you could potentially require evidence to make a claim. Do your research and get advice from a professional as well as reading up on reviews.
  • Night Time - an accident can happen at any time so make sure that your camera can record footage during the day and night.
  • Loop Recording - as your camera will always be recording when you are driving, space on your hard drive will run out. Loop recordings will automatically over-write the oldest files once the memory card is full.

Whilst a Dash-Cam won't prevent you from having an accident, it will help you in gathering evidence which helps to give you peace of mind when you are out and about on the roads.
