This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in January of 2019. A dash cam is one of the best things you can buy to protect yourself on the road, which is especially important for truckers. In the event of an accident, they can capture video footage that proves you weren't at fault, and some of them have a parking surveillance mode to guard your vehicle against thieves and vandalism. Our list includes both basic and full-featured models to fit any budget. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

May 16, 2019:

The Street Guardian X2Pro has a variety of useful features to help you capture high-quality footage, including a powerful processor and image sensor and a seven-element glass lens. It logs time, speed, and GPS coordinates with each video file, and it's designed to be user-friendly and easy to install. If you're on a budget, the Rexing V1 is one of the best models you can find for under $100. It records high-def 1080p video with an ultra-wide 170° lens, and its accident detecting G-sensor automatically locks footage of collisions to prevent it from being overwritten. The Vantrue N2 offers a high degree of protection, with infrared night vision and a 24-hour parking mode that automatically starts recording when it senses motion near your vehicle.

If you do a lot of driving in extreme temperatures, you may want to invest in a dash cam that's powered by a capacitor rather than a lithium battery, like the VicoVation Opia2, Thinkware F70, or Street Guardian X2Pro. These models tend to be a little pricier, but you won't have to worry about leaving them in your truck on particularly hot or cold days. The only downside is that they have to be hardwired, but they're typically not difficult to install.
