The Top 7 Dual Dash Cams in 2019
Our pick of the best all around rated front and rear car camera setups on the market.
#7 AUKEY Dual Dash Cam
The AUKEY Dual Dash Cam really stands out, especially at its price point. Coming in at $140 on Amazon, it’s the second cheapest camera on this list but still manages to deliver a quality experience. This camera records in 1080p with an option for in-car audio that also records at night. There is also a preview feature in the car itself to view live footage while in the vehicle. It has a 170° front angle view and a 152° rear camera view, covering as many as six lanes of traffic at once. An interesting feature that you get with a higher quality dual dash camera is its ability to perform in extreme temperature. The manufacturers claim that the camera can operate from -22°F – 167°F and has a longer lifetime than cameras with standard batteries. The AUKEY manufacturer also has a 24-month warranty service on all of their products.
Benefits to this camera include its weight, allowing portability and easy installation. The small size also makes the camera hard to see which could be helpful in confidential situations. One large drawback is the limited night vision. Poor lighting affects any camera and the AUKEY is no different. Another drawback is the lack of mobile interaction. The user can use a SD card to connect it to their computer, but there is no mobile support. The rear extension cord may also be a bit short depending on the vehicle it is installed in but seems to work in most instances. Overall, this is a great option for a small dual dash camera with a high recording quality and an easy setup.
#6 Veckle Mini 0906 Dual Dash Cam
The Veckle Mini has a high recording quality of 1080p for the front and back cameras and can even record as high as 60 frames per second using only the front facing camera. It has the leading Sony Exmor sensor that can record license plate numbers even in the dark. GPS location and driving speed can be stamped onto the video and the camera has a File Protection system. If the car undergoes a collision, the camera will save the footage for maximum protection.
One of the side effects of this camera is that it tends to run hot. People living in hotter climates might have trouble with parking guard due to the extreme heat. Make sure to take this factor into account but this issue does not tend to happen with the mass majority.
Overall, the quality of this camera really sticks out. Often times dual dash cams sacrifice video quality for the front and rear simultaneous vision, but the Veckle Mini is a dual lens dash camera with the video quality of a single lens camera, an impressive feat. There’s even an anti-glare filter included with the camera, which increases the video quality even more. The menu system is a bit tricky for first time dash camera users but installation is easy and operation is intuitive The whole package provides everything you need for a great experience. This is the best budget front and rear dash camera, especially for $132.99 on Amazon. Cheap, high-quality, and dual dash cameras are hard to come by and the Veckle Mini is one of the best models out there.
#5 Rexing V1LG Dual Dash Cam
As is the norm for these types of cameras, the Rexing V1LG records in 1080p at 30 frames per second. The front camera records 170° and the rear camera records 140°. Some additional features are collision detection, loop recording, and a lightweight and discreet design to prevent detection. This camera can be placed high on the windshield and close to the rearview mirror, limiting the driver’s view as much as little as possible. Both the front and back camera lenses are adjustable allowing more flexibility in the setup and installation process.
The pros to this camera are much like other cameras at this price point: easy installation, extraordinary video quality, an easy to use user interface, and a small image viewer on the camera to see the footage it’s recording while in motion. Like many other cameras, the Rexing V1LG has additional computer software that can track the route taken using Google Maps for additional verification. One major plus is that unlike other cameras that are 5 volt USB based and have limited power sources, the Rexing V1LG is a 12 volt camera, allowing it to connect to virtually every power source in the car without an adapter.
This camera lacks some features evident in other cameras, like a motion sensor feature while the car is parked and an anti-glare feature. These features have variable importance depending on the person. If these features are not as important as video quality or weight or size of the device, the Rexing V1LG holds up.
#4 THINKWARE F200 Dual Dash Cam
The F200 front and rear dash cam from THINKWARE is one of the most stealthy full HD dash cameras on the market today. Because of it’s small and discrete design, it does not have an LCD screen to view video or make setting changes. This all needs to be done through your smartphones WiFi connection while using the THINKWARE APP. The F200 uses a capacitor rather a battery, making it perform better in high heat locations.
The F200 comes with a 16gb microSD card, which will provide hours of recording time, and when the camera fills up, it will auto record over the last files and start over. If you would like to store more video files, it will take up to a 128gb microSD card.
Other addon options with the F200 are a hardwire kit that connects to your cars fuse box and allows the camera to be on standby 24/7 for parking mode features that can help capture a hit and run in a parking lot, and a GPS module that displays your speed and GPS coordinates among other things.
THINKWARE is one of the most reputable dash cam manufactures and backs up their dash cams with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty.
With it’s low price, the THINKWARE F200 is a great dual dash cam package to consider for your car
#3 Blackvue DR750S-2CH Dash Cam
The Blackvue maintains the excellent video quality as other more expensive dual dash cameras but has a couple additional features not available at lower price points. Proximity sensors in the front and rear cameras allow for parking mode which guards the car without a driver inside. This camera does not have a display, which is good or bad depending on the person. Some people like watching the capture footage while driving, however this tends to make the camera size larger and more conspicuous. The lack of display allows for a smaller camera that can fit in smaller more discrete places. This camera does not support 4K video yet but might in future models.
In regards to storage, the Blackvue supports up to a 128GB micro SD card but only provides a 16GB card in the package. This card does not provide much storage so purchasing an additional high-quality memory card is highly recommended. The camera claims to have a built-in WiFi connection as well as cloud storage, but both of these features have mixed reviews. Some claim that the WiFi connection is spotty and works intermittently and some are unable to use the cloud service.
Overall, this camera performs its core functions well. It provides stunning visuals with the front and back camera, it’s easy to install, and has collision detection technology. It might be a bit expensive for what’s offered, especially for the shakiness of the WiFi and cloud storage, but the camera itself is stable and dependable.
#2 Street Guardian SG9663DC Dual Dash Camera
Visual quality is enhanced a bit with the Street Guardian. This camera records in 1080p and 30fps on both the front and rear camera. File protection and night vision are also included along with a complementary one year warranty. This camera was made a bit more recently in late 2017, so it is compatible with a 256GB memory card. The SD card provided by the manufacturer is 128GB but seems to work with no problems.
One aspect of the Street Guardian products that stands out from the competition is the amazing customer service. People who aren’t the most tech-savvy can just install the software included and forget about it, but those who want to go the extra mile will be happy to discover that there are continuous firmware updates. Any issues or bugs reported on their forums are usually fixed extremely quickly, as well as any questions asked on their Amazon page. Their comments are much more articulate than other dash cam companies and they seem to genuinely care about the product and the customers using it. Additionally, the company chose to delay the release of their hardwire cable to ensure that it was a quality product. Although this camera is a bit more expensive than other dual dash cameras, the cost can be justified due to its superior visual quality and excellent customer service. In many instances, you get what you pay for, and the Street Guardian Dual Dash Camera is no exception to this rule.
#1 BlackVue DR900S-2CH
Our number one pick for the top dual dash cam in 2019 is the DR900S from Blackvue. It is the only 4K dash cam on our list and it is one of the few real 4K dash cams being sold today, as nearly all the dash cams claiming to be 4K, are just 2K or lower and resized as the video is being saved (you need a 8MP image sensor to get real 4K video, which the DR900S has).
Along with the 4K video that the DR900S offers, Blackvue also offers cloud storage and remote access by pairing their dash cam with an in car internet connection or a mobile device by using the Blackvue APP. Using the Blackvue Cloud gives you the ability to view the GPS location on a map of where your car is at all times, view videos that are saved to the cloud and communicate with the driver.
The small size and all black color of the DR900S give it the “stealth” like appearance that can help prevent theft and car break-ins. It does not have any screens on the actually camera unit, instead it has built in WiFi, which allows you to access the DR900S with your smartphone and review saved videos, delete videos and change various camera settings.
Unlike many other dash cams, it comes with built in GPS, so you don’t have to buy a GPS addon module like some of the other dash cams, that are not only costly, but take up more windshield space.
Supporting up to a 256gb microSD, this will give you more than 24 hours of record time on both the front and rear cameras, in mid range video quality, while capturing almost 15 hours in total video using the highest video quality mode.
If you spend time browsing online communities where the question is asked: “What is the best dash cam”, the Blackvue DR900S is often cited as “the best” dash cam currently on the market today.
