Dash cameras or dashboard cameras are small cameras that are placed on the dashboard or windscreen of a vehicle by use of the suction cup. They are used to record continuously any view or activities while someone is driving. They provide solid video evidence if an accident happens as they record all that occurs on the road while driving. They can also be used to analyse your driving performance and also capture the routes as you drive. The dash cameras can be used by people who own private cars, bus drivers or even police to record evidence at traffic stops.

Lots of Complex Features
There are different types of dash cameras with different features and capabilities which help drivers and car owners in various ways. Some of the key features in a dash camera include:
- Wide aperture which makes it possible to record clear videos even in low light situations. Some have dual cameras, i.e. front and rear cameras so as to shoot a wider range of vision.
- A microphone which records all the audio inside your vehicle.
- They have GPS, and this is to record your locations you go to, the speed and also track your position and display it on Google maps.
- A G-sensor that records force, direction, impact, accelerations and turns as you drive. You can retrieve this information in case you have an accident and use it as evidence.
- You can take photos with the dash camera which can be very useful in case of any incident.
