Top 3 Dash Cams For Uber And Lyft Drivers
Any rideshare driver knows that driving without a dash cam can have serious consequences for themselves and their vehicle. Dash cams are safe investments that protect rideshare drivers against insurance fraud, false passenger accusations, and unruly passenger behavior. While there are numerous dash cams out there, we’ve made a list of the top 3 dash cams with important features that are best suited for rideshare drivers.
Pros: It features 2 cameras, one for recording the road ahead of you and another for recording the inside of your vehicle. The dual 1080P cameras are class leading with a 170-degree viewing angle in the front and 140 degrees in the cabin. Rest assured if you will be driving at night because this dash cam contains night vision with excellent nighttime footage. Other features include Motion detection with Parking Mode, Auto LCD OFF, Loop Recording, and a G-sensor that auto locks the footage during a collision and emergencies to prevent the recording from being overwritten.
Cons: GPS functionality requires a separate mount and it doesn’t come with a SD card
Our Take: This is hands down the best value for the money. It’s an excellent dash cam that has all of the necessary features that rideshare drivers need to feel safe and protected while driving. Make sure to purchase a suitable SD card along with a hardwiring kit, and a GPS module.
Pros: It features 2 cameras, one for recording the road ahead and another for recording the interior of your vehicle. The dual 1080P cameras capture a class-leading 139-degree viewing angle in the front and 149 degrees in the cabin. It has arguably the best video quality of any dash cam we tested. In fact, it’s IR functionality is the best in the industry and really captures great interior footage especially during low lighting conditions such as at night. It’s built-in GPS, functionality, included SD card, and built-in wi-fi makes this a superior dash cam to the Vantrue N2 Pro
Cons: Very expensive compared to other dash cams with similar features. Doesn’t support 4k
Our Take: At $459.99, it’s pretty expensive but the features that are included in this dash cam justify the high price tag. This is the best dash cam that any rideshare driver can buy currently.
#3- Rexing V1LG
Pros: It features 2 cameras, one for recording the road ahead and another for recording the interior of your vehicle. While the front camera captures Full HD 1080p recordings with a class leading 170-degree viewing angle, the rear camera records in 720p in the cabin. It comes with a built-in GPS logger, loop recording to automatically overwrite the oldest recordings, and G -sensor to prevent recordings from being overwritten in a collision.
Cons: Only the front camera records in 1080p, while the rear camera records in 720p. The interior quality is not the best and it doesn’t come with a SD card.
Our take: It’s a pretty solid dash cam for the features it offers at a decent price point. The wide viewing angle is helpful, and it comes with a GPS logger built in. So, as long as you are okay with the interior recording quality being 720P, it’s a good dash cam under $200.
Make sure to get a durable and reliable SD Card with your dash cam purchase. While some dash cams include a SD Card, others require you to purchase it separately. We recommend you only purchase SD cards that are built for rideshare applications and designed to withstand numerous hours of recording and overwriting. We recommend purchasing a SD Card that’s 64GB but if that’s not available, you can get a 32GB.
