A dashboard camera can let you share holiday road trip high-lights as well as record evidence useful in case of a collision or insurance fraud.

There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a dash cam.

The first is size. A smaller dash cam will be unobtrusive but you may sacrifice features like a large screen for a low profile.

The numbers represent how many pixels or image units make up the picture. More pixels means more detail and a larger picture size.

A bigger picture gives you great quality, but also more detail which could be important in case of an accident.

Another useful feature is the quality of night time recording. Accidents don't just happen in the daytime.

Both of these cameras offer night time recording capability and this camera has Infra-Red Assist in case the headlights are off.

Both of these dash cameras offer a Loop Recording function that lets the camera record over old footage if your memory card gets full. The camera won't stop recording, so you will always have the most recent footage on the memory card.

Both of these cameras include 8GB removable memory cards. Recording time varies depending of the video quality selected.

Each are expandable up to 32GB of memory.

The Auto On/Off feature starts the camera recording when you turn the ignition on. You won't miss something important because you forgot to turn the camera on.

Both cameras have a G-Sensor collision detector, which is an important feature. When the G-Sensor notices an impact, the camera will automatically mark and preserve the current footage for safekeeping.

The Motion Detector feature will start recording if your car is damaged in your absence so you can see who hit your car.

The date and time stamp on both cameras will make your footage useful if it ever has to be used as evidence.

On this dash cam, a GPS or Global Positioning System function will embed more information in the video footage such as location and speed.

By using additional software with both cameras, you can add moving maps as well.

Both cameras are able to be connected to a compatible television so you can playback your videos at home.

Regular dash cams have one camera facing forward. 

This multi-camera dash cam has both a wide angle and a telephoto camera. Either camera can record looking forward or rotated to be a rear-ward facing camera that records activity in the passenger compartment or through the rear window.

Most dash cams are powered by an adapter plugged into the cigarette lighter. Make sure the cable is long enough to be tucked in around the window rather than hanging down the middle of the windshield.

Most dash cams also have an internal battery that will let them record if the adapter is unplugged. This also allows them be taken out of the car and used as simple cameras for still images or video so you can record collision damage or add even more interest to your road trip videos.

Whatever your needs, you can see a wide selection of dash cams and accessories at Canadian Tire.
