We looked at the most popular dash cams on the market to find the best dash cam for your situation. Since dash cams can range between $50 and $500, it's important that you prioritize features that meet your needs so that you don't overpay or underpay. While all dash cams provide an objective witness to an accident, our pick for the best dash cam overall is the BlackVue DR650S-2CH because the dual camera design sees more than other dash cams and the Wi-Fi feature makes for easy tracking. However, while the high-end price and advanced features mean it's ideal for professional drivers, it may be more than a casual commuter would ever need.
Editor's Note: The Papago GoSafe 260 has been discontinued by the manufacturer but they continue to sell numerous other dash cam models. We will consider reviewing them for our next round of product updates.
