Best dash cam for night driving.
September 18, 2018 7:46 AM   Subscribe

Hi folks; I work nights & do a lot of driving. I need to buy a dashcam. I don't want wifi, or GPS--just a front facing cam. Small,discreet,and really good for nights,and removable.All for city driving. Any suggestions? Thank you all :-)

Have you browsed Reddit's /r/dashcam?

There's a box on the right side that tracks their latest recommendations. They even have recommendations for removable/rear-facing night cameras if you're doing something like driving an Uber.

I have been using an i-Tentek B40C since July 2016, and I'm reasonably happy with it.

Make sure you get a dashcam with a supercapacitor providing shutdown power rather than a battery, especially if you live in a hot climate. (I live in Houston, Texas, US and had two dashcams die during two consecutive summers before I learned this lesson.)

I'd also suggest getting a dashcam with a GPS receiver, even if you don't care about geotagging your footage. The reason for this is so you'll always have accurate timestamps without having to worry about manually setting a clock.
