The dash cams in this category are some of the best quality you will find. If you are looking for fantastic video quality, a wide array of features, and superb reliability, this is the place to look. As most of these cameras are manufactured by established brands, they will rarely be faulty, as quality control is much higher. A top level dash cam should last many years, and for this reason we advise using good quality microSD cards to match the reliability of the camera. Recording high quality footage in low light can be very difficult for most cameras, but these high end dash cams should provide clear and crisp video in all situations.
Remember, unless you are using a Parking Mode feature, take the dash cam with you or hide it somewhere in the car while parked. These cameras often appear far more attractive to thieves.
