The best dashcams you can buy in South Africa

Dashcams have become a popular car accessory among drivers and can prove invaluable in an accident or robbery.

The dashboard-mounted cameras can be powered by a USB charger or connected directly to your car’s electronics, and usually have a few minutes of standalone battery life.

Dashcams record constantly, overwriting previous recordings in a continuous loop – unless they are interrupted, for example, by an accident.

Using a built-in G-sensor, dashcams can automatically save a video of an accident and will not overwrite the data with further recording.

This makes them extremely useful for insurance purposes and providing evidence in road accidents.

An important factor to consider when purchasing a dashcam is resolution and recording quality, as this could be crucial in identifying events or objects surrounding an incident.
