Top 3 Best Dash Cams in the USA

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Dash cams have become a staple in cars thanks to their wider availability and more affordable prices. Drivers who prioritize security on the roads buy them as essential tools for enforcing accountability of all participants in the traffic, accident recording, and keeping driving records.

Yet, the mainstreaming of the dash cams has made it harder for the customer to pick out the best ones for their needs. To help you out, we prepared a list of the top three best dash cams available in the USA. Fasten your seat belts and let’s fire up those cameras!

Nextbase 622GW

If you are going for an upgrade or a first-time purchase, this model will get you covered in both cases. Getting your hands on Nextbase 622GW means getting a broad range of best-buy features any driver expects to see with these devices nowadays. For starters, you will get an excellent 4K operational resolution that comes packaged with superb night vision capabilities. GPS tracking is supported as well and if you prefer to keep an eye on your car at all times, you’ll soon learn to love its parked car monitoring system that runs around the clock.

Now, this model also markets its durability, particularly if you are driving in regions that are known for their temperature extremes. Supported functionality at -30 °C might appear as an almost unneeded feature, but with the volatile climate, you never know.

If you get in trouble, the emergency calling system will be your best ally as it will automatically ask for assistance in case of an accident. You can also be sure that the included support for Alexa will make your driving experience easier, while the smartphone app and Bluetooth connectivity are a part of the deal here.

Now, paying a bit of a premium price for the model is compensated by an array of features on offer. Just bear in mind that the model runs on a lithium-ion battery that can suffer if the heat gets too extreme, but this is hardly a blemish on an otherwise excellent car dash camera.

Vantrue X4

Similar to its above competitor, Vantrue X4 will do everything to charm you with a dazzling range of features it packs. First, let us say that your recordings will be as sharp as to cut your eyes on them, with supported 4K/UHD definition, i.e. 2160p. These will look great in both daytime and nighttime thanks to supported night vision. Now, this model also wants to spoil you with its parked vehicle monitoring system that stays alert 24 hours a day. GPS tracking will also become available as soon as you mount this model on your windscreen.

Speaking of the windscreen, Vantrue X4 will not require too much space on it or obstruct your vision. Its general measures and 3-inch screen put it more in the category of a standard compact camera. The visibility of what happens on the screen is also great as the images are both crisp and brightly lit. Add to it a highly intuitive menu and you get a clear winner for those who want to make their dash cams operational immediately.

Also, thanks to being powered by a capacitor instead of a battery, Vantrue X4 will perform admirably even on the hottest days or in generally warmer regions. If you want to look for weaknesses with a magnifying glass, you can say that the lack of app connectivity is one of these, but at this price/performance ratio it would be nothing but hairsplitting.

Garmin Dash Cam Mini

The main selling point of this dash cam is indicated in its name – yes, it is a mini model and it can mean at least two things: it won’t get in the view of the landscape and, more importantly, others won’t notice the camera either.

So, if you are after discretion, Garmin Dash Cam Mini is your new best driving pal. The discreteness is achieved by removing the display from the device, which means that you will have to use a dedicated app to configure the camera and check what goes on in the field.

Video does not suffer from the compact design, thankfully, as it will easily charm you with its 1080p resolution. Paired with an easy mounting system that combines magnets and an adhesive surface and a reasonable price, you have a great model that will serve you reliably.


Choosing a dash cam today can be both a chore and a challenge because you can have too much of a good thing in the market. You can use our above recommendations to end your search now or as a reference point for getting the dash camera after your own heart.
