There is every reason why this dashcam is on top of the list. Designed to be a dual-channel dash cam, it has both rear and front cameras. And mind you, its cameras feature Full HD Sony STARVIS image sensors, giving you the best image quality at any given light. You also have access to a GPS Logger, Cloud and Wi-Fi connectivity, impact, and even motion detection. Above all, you do not need a screen as it comes with an app that you can connect whenever you want. All these sophisticated features in a stealthy design, the kind that never gets in the way of driving.

#2. Viofo A119V2

This one here is basically the upgraded version of the Viofo A119. It is still equipped with the same features such as heat-resistance, functionality, and video quality. But what makes it a stellar product is its ability to automatically start while giving you significant error notifications if you encounter recording issues. This allows you to have full video coverage on the road.

#3. Yi Dash Cam

For the past few months since its release, the Yi Dash Cam has continued to impress car enthusiasts with its rock-solid stability and performance. For instance, it records at a stunning 1296P and thus gives a video quality that is over the top. And since it can be connected to a Wi-Fi, you can always stream, download, or save videos on your smartphone. With its affordability, this dash cam gives you a lot of bang for your buck.

#4. Transcend DrivePro 200

Transcend intelligently designed this dash cam for drivers in hot environments. Backed up by the company’s two-year warranty (you cannot just get that warranty rate at any store!), the 200 version has a successful history of working efficiently in hot climates.

It comes with a 16GB card and a Wi-Fi video playback. This heat-resistant camera is absolutely worth every penny spent.

#5. Viofo G1W-S

If you are still using the old-fashioned A118C and A118C2 series, it is time to replace them with Viofo G1W-S. The designers upgraded both of its hardware and quality control.

Although it races close to Transcend DrivePro 200, this budget-friendly dash cam is still ideal for places with warmer temperatures.

#6. Vicovation OPIA1

The OPIA1 version is basically an upgrade to the OPIA2. The former has an improved video quality powered by a Sony STARVIS sensor and adds a larger aperture of f/1.4 lens. Its download/stream record video feature can now be powered by Wi-Fi connection, too. The upgraded version is also equipped with a heat-resistant feature, with a resistant power of up to 75°C/167°F. This is perfect for both hot and humid environments. To put it simply, this dash cam has every feature a motorist would want for his vehicle.

If you loved Thinkware’s F770, then the F800 is an easy one. It now boasts a brand new processor and a STARVIS sensor for better low-light quality. Interestingly, the company is working on another version called F800 pro. Although its release date remains unknown, this version will reportedly support larger SD cards (128GB). Moreover, it will be equipped with live-tracking features, energy-saving modes, and a stealthier look.
