Buying a dash cam.

What is a dash cam?

A dash cam, also known as a car camera, continuously records the view of the road or inside of the car (depending on where it's pointed), traffic conditions and more. Many cams have built-in microphones to record audio along with the video. With a fantastic selection of dash cams, Best Buy is a go-to source for these devices. Dash cam footage can be copied to a removable storage media like a microSD card. As the name suggests, the dash cam is mounted to a car's dashboard, or occasionally the windshield. Mounting the camera is usually not difficult. Dashboard cameras are attached by suction, adhesive or a magnetic mount. As for powering the unit, some dashboard cameras run on a battery, generally rechargeable via USB. Others include a power cord that plugs into your vehicle’s accessory socket. Still other models can be wired directly to your car battery using a hardwire kit. This gives you the option to record 24/7 for maximum vehicle security. If you choose that option, Geek Squad can provide valuable dash camera installation assistance.

Dash cam features.

Finding the best dash cam for you depends on how you intend to use it. A dash cam equipped with G-sensor includes motion detection. This function saves and locks the current video if the car camera detects an accident or a hard-braking incident. This will provide valuable evidence to an insurance company. If you drive a lot at night, a camera with night vision mode can provide quality recording in low light. You can also choose a system that includes a rear camera, or you can get a separate back-up camera. You also have the option of choosing a dash cam with GPS. If you don't want GPS, a portable GPS could handle your navigation requirements.

Uses for your dash cam.

In addition to providing details of an accident, a car dash cam can also serve as personal security. A dash cam can also provide a record of how young drivers are handling their new-found responsibilities. Dash cams are also a hassle-free option for creating a record of the family road trip. In that case, you may find it convenient to have an external hard drive at the ready to save your footage, especially if you’ll want to edit it down later to create a video travelogue.
