Maybe it’s just a guy thing (actually, it isn’t), but there are very few things out there that can beat showing off your car and all of the insides and outsides of it to your significant other. We all love our cars, and one way to safeguard them is to install a dashcam. Not only can dashcams be used when you’re driving, but if wired right, some of them can record incidents even when the car is turned off and parked. When it comes to safety and claiming insurance, or even preventing insurance fraud or scammers who fake accidents, a dashcam is the easiest way to prove your innocence. Check out the following four wide-angle dashboard cameras available on Amazon. We’re sure that at least one of them is likely to capture your eye.
This dashcam records three views simultaneously: a 170-degree wide front view; a 120-degree wide in-cabin view; and a 120-degree wide rearview. The front view allows you to record details from more than 3 lanes, while the rearview can act as a reversing assistant. Images are captured in Full HD, even at night. The cam switches on automatically when the car starts and switches off when the ignition is turned off. Its Emergency Recording feature enables the locking of recording (which is non-erasable) when its in-built G-sensor detects a collision ahead. The compact 4-inch display does not interfere with the driver’s view and easily enables him to switch between the front and rearview. Finally, the Parking Monitoring feature automatically records when motion is detected while the car is stationary.
The 70mai captures video in Full HD resolution, even in the dark, at a 130° wide-angle range. It supports 8-64 GB micro memory cards, automatically recording over the oldest footage on the card when it is full (Loop Recording). It features the all-important Emergency Recording, which faithfully reproduces an accident scene. It has 6 Voice Control functions enabled, particularly regarding recording, which makes driving with both hands on the wheel easier. Finally, using your Wi-Fi connection, you can operate this dashcam on your smartphone.
This dashcam has a 5 MP camera and 6 sets of full-glass lens which allow it to capture 1600p videos even during hot, steamy summers. It has a super clear night vision and displays all the basic driving statistics. Its inbuilt high-precision GPS feature allows you to view your driving route and gives full details of rapid acceleration, sharp turning, hand-braking, etc. Its other features include Loop Recording, 24 Hours’ Continuous Parking Monitoring and Emergency Recording. Finally, the dashcam’s inbuilt Wi-Fi feature allows you to connect to your smartphone and access the dashcam’s footage.
This dual dashcam comprises a 1080p front camera and a 720p rear one that continuously record in conjunction with one another. Its features include Day/Night Vision, Loop Recording, Emergency Recording and a Reverse Mode. It supports up to 64GB memory, and the front and rear cameras’ respective ranges are 170 degrees and 120 degrees. This camera can also be wired to conduct 24-hour surveillance. Still, it won’t kill your car battery as it goes into sleep mode and immediately starts recording for 30 seconds if it senses any vibrations when the car is parked, and the ignition is off. This is useful if someone tries to break into the car when parked at night.
