Here are the top 5 dash cams according to truck drivers.
WheelWitness HD PRO Dash Cam with GPS
Description: Combining the exceptional Ambarella A7LA50 processor and a 170 degrees super wide angle lens, the WheelWitness HD Pro model is the perfect witness, recording everything in front of you in ultra-clear Super HD 2k, in crisp 2304x1296P resolution.
User Review: I have been using this Dashcam for a few months now and I am really happy with the performance. I drive trucks for a living and it has been working for me. The user interface is very easy to use and setup is easy also. Software for viewing recorded data is awesome, very informative and many features. Purchased 3 more to put in my other cars. Also, Have contacted customer support and response was very quick and prompt. they answered all my questions and concerns
Vantrue N2 Pro Dual Dash Cam
Description: With a 170° front facing OV4689 sensor camera and 140° rear facing sony sensor camera(80° rotatable) in one body, N2 pro shots both front and inside the cabin simultaneously in full HD 1920x1080P 30fps. Provides drivers and passengers with optimum protection.
User Review: Lots of features for the price. 1080p front and interior video, you can even up the resolution and frame rate on the front facing camera as well. The IR light is a must if you want clear (black and white) interior video in the dark. One of the neatest features is that it separates front and interior videos on separate files. It also has an accelerometer so it protects files when there’s an abrupt jolt or stop, like in an accident. It also has parking mode, although it should be turned off unless you wire the camera to constant 12v power. The size is quite small, people can see it’s there, but it’s not an eyesore.
ROAV by Anker Dash Cam C1
Description: Advanced Sony Exmor CMOS sensor with Nighthawk Vision technology captures perfectly exposed, full HD 1080P video at 30fps. DashCam’s f1.8 wide-angle aperture lens captures 4 lanes of traffic, giving you footage of the whole road. Compact frame installs onto windshields to be discreetly concealed behind your rear-view mirror. Equipped with a shock sensor to instantly start recording when suddenly jolted.
For the price, this camera turned out to be AMAZING. The video is very smooth and high definition, and on a nice phone, you can zoom in and see quite a bit. License plates can easily be visible in the right lighting circumstances, but it is not a guarantee. Using the software on your phone is very easy too. It connects easily while you’re in the car and with just a button or two, you can download a video clip of your drive right to your phone via wifi VPN.
OldShark Dash Cam, 3″ 1080P HD
Description: OldShark GS505 dash cam is equipped retardant metal material and a shock absorption design. The premier sensor is able to produce highly-detailed recordings during both day and night driving. Composed of zinc alloy metal shell for greater durability and heat dissipation protection.
User Review: I’ve had the opportunity of using the product for more than a year. So far, it’s been reliable and does the basic job of recording video and audio. I’ve been able to determine license plate numbers in the footage when the sun is down and can hear audio pretty clearly. I had no issues in Arizona desert summers but they can get warm during recording. The menu UI is ok but for the price, it does the job. You’re able to have loop recording times, turn on and off the microphone, record when it senses movement or parking aka recording when it senses shaking. It really is the best bang for your buck product when comparing to more expensive competitors.
KDLINKS X1 GPS Enabled Full HD Wide Angle Dashboard Camera Recorder
Description: The X1 Dash Cam records Full HD videos (1920 * 1080p) at 30 fps. The use of six-glass F1.6 lenses and an extremely sensitive AR0330 sensor ensure excellent quality. Built-in GPS module precisely records GPS data into video clips, and you can check vehicle location/speed/route through the native software.
User Review: I am a truck driver driving 400 miles a night for a major package carrier I drive through New York City, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Connecticut every night. I wanted a Dash Cam that is easily mounted in and removed from the vehicle. Having used it for approximately one month, about fifty hours a week, I must say that it has not let me down. The instruction book was well written and easy to understand. The unit also comes with two suction cup mounts. I have had no issues with it falling off of the windshield. The included power cord is of high quality and has not fallen apart by the repeated plugging in and unplugging. Additionally, the cord is long enough to wrap around the windshield of my truck if I desired.
