Best Uber/Lyft Dash Cams (interior + front camera) 2020

Our pick of the best dual dash cameras on the market with interior facing and exterior facing cameras for rideshare drivers.

We’ve noticed a lot of other websites posting about the best dash cameras for Uber or Lyft drivers, however many of the listed cameras are not designed for capturing the inside of your vehicle and passengers, which is a needed feature for any rideshare driver. You can use a “dual dash cam” setup, which is 2 separate cameras and mount them both on the front windshield, with one facing in and one facing out, but the main problem with this is that it’s often more expensive and you will have 2 camera units and 2 sets of wires to direct to a power source.

Reviews of the Top 8 Uber Dash Cams:

Here is our list of the best 2 in 1 dual lens dash cameras that capture the road outside, the inside of your car and records the audio of passengers with a builtin microphone.

#8 Pruveeo C2 Dual Lens Dash Cam

Pruveeo C2 Dual Lens Dash CamWhile Pruveeo’s C2 may look like alien technology, the camera remains fairly discrete thanks to its unique and unobtrusive placement at the top of your windscreen. Unlike most dash cams, the C2’s dual camera setup is completely rotatable, allowing you to face both cameras in one direction or one in either, providing an unparalleled level of flexibility.

1080p HD recording at 30fps in dual channel mode and 2196p/1440p recording in single channel mode ensures a crisp and smooth picture both inside and in front of your vehicle. Both lenses have wide viewing angles of up to 150 degrees and can display both feeds simultaneously on the 2.7 inch LCD display. Loop recording comes standard, along with a built-in speaker and mic setup to handle audio of your passengers.

Check PriceA 320mAh battery allows you to continue recording footage for some time if the power is cut, otherwise the C2 will remain plugged into your cigarette lighter. With high resolution video support on both camera units, a large microSD card will make maintenance a less frequent task. Luckily the C2 supports up to 128GB of microSD storage.

WDR, date-time overlays and global support is included with the Pruveeo C2, making it a comprehensive and considerable option in its price range.

Blueskysea B2W Uber/Lyft Dash CamWith its relatively unique shape and design, the B2W offers dual cam recording for the inside and outside of your car.

#1 Vantrue N4 Uber Dash Cam

Vantrue N4 Dash CamIt’s finally here! The dash cam that many Uber and rideshare drivers have been asking for: a 2 in 1 dash cam WITH a rear camera as well.

Our Number One Pick for the Best Uber Dash Cam of 2020 is the Vantrue N4 Dash Cam!

Vantrue has released their 3 channel dash cam that features a front facing road camera, an interior facing cabin camera and rear road facing camera all in one unit that stores video on one memory card. All 3 cameras can record at the same time in full HD video, with the front cam recording at 1140p and the interior and rear cam recording at 1080p. The N4 dash cam uses Sony STARVIS image sensors, which are known for their crisp day video and clear night vision video.

Audio recording can be be easily turned on and off with the push of a button. The microphone is located on the main camera unit and should be able to pick up all audio coming from passengers in your back seats.

Check PriceThe N4 does not have WiFi like many other high end dash cams, so you will not be able to remotely connect your smart phone to the N4 to view or download videos. You will need to use the 2.45″ LCD screen to make dash cam setting changes, which should only be once when you set it up. With the included USB computer cable or a microSD card reader you can download videos on to your computer.

While many dash cams offer parking mode features, the nice thing about having an interior cam is that you can capture the face of a car prowler. When the parking mode feature is on, the N4 can automatically start recording when it detects motion. It also has impact detection in parking mode as well which would start recording if someone ran into your car in a parking lot. You should get the optional hardwire kit if you plan on using parking mode on the N4. Read full Vantrue N4 Dash Cam Review

PROS

  • 3 cameras in 1 unit
  • Good parking mode, with inside recording
  • Uses capacitor, better for high/low temperatures
  • Uses Sony STARVIS image sensor (crisp/clear video)

CONS

  • No WiFi

Vantrue N4 Specs

  • Video: 1440P front, 1080P cabin, 1080P rear
  • Sony STARVIS image sensor
  • Lens angle: 155° front, 165° interior, 160° rear

  • Parking mode with motion & impact detection
  • GPS, with optional module

Vantrue N2 VS Vantrue N4

Should you get the newer Vantrue N4 Dash Cam, or the Vantrue N2 Pro?

Comparing the two different Uber dash cams from Vantrue, the first obvious difference is that the newer N4 dash camera has 3 cameras in 1 one main unit, while the N2 only has 2 cameras. This is a huge difference for any driver who wants a rear camera and to have it all part of the same package.

The newer N4 model shoots at a higher 1440p (which some call 2K) on the front camera, while the N2’s front camera has 1080p resolution. Both cabin cams on each model shoot 1080p.

The older N2 model has a wider front camera lens angle of 170°, while the N4 has a front lens angle of 155°

N4 is better for high heat, as it uses a capacitor rather than a battery, which the N2 uses. Note, a battery or capacitor in a dash cam is not meant to power the camera like a battery on a GoPro would, it is only there to provide power for a few seconds to save the last video clip when you turn your car off.

Overall, we think it is worth paying a bit more for the N4 to get full 360 degree coverage around your car and have the 3 camera setup.


Common Questions about Rideshare Dash Cams

Can Uber drivers use a dash cam?

Yes, it is not against Uber’s terms of use to have a dash camera installed in your car. This includes having an interior facing dash camera that records audio. You do need to follow your state laws about recording audio and notifying your passengers that audio and video is being recorded.

From the Uber website:

Drivers may install and use video cameras, dash cams, or other recording devices to record riders for the purpose of fulfilling transportation services…Local regulations may require individuals using recording equipment in vehicles to fully disclose to riders that they’re being recorded in or around a vehicle and obtain consent.

As long as you’re not posting videos on Youtube, Facebook or other social media sites without the passengers consent, you shouldn’t have any problems.

Can Lyft drivers use a dash cam?

Yes, Lyft takes the same approach as Uber in that they don’t restrict their drivers from using a dash camera, but they do caution drivers to follow their local laws and not to post videos online without the riders permission.

From the Safety policies section of the Lyft website:

Depending on local regulations, the use of dashboard cameras and other recording devices during rides may not be allowed. Some cities or states may require signage making known the presence of recording devices, while other regions may not allow recording devices at all…Broadcasting another person’s image or recording without their express prior consent is prohibited and may result in your account being disabled.

Why Uber, Lyft and Taxi Drivers Should Have a Dash Cam

While we feel it’s important for all drivers to have a dash camera recording the front of their car at all times, we think it is especially important for rideshare drivers to have video and audio documentation of their paid passengers. Just how many companies have surveillance cameras in their businesses for protection and liability purposes, the same should go for a car conducting business. Having a dash cam recording the inside of your car could save you from a false harassment or assault charge from a drunk passenger for example. It’s no longer your word against the rider who might make a false statement to Uber or Lyft, getting your account terminated or banned. Protect your job with an inside cabin dash cam.

Where to get Dash Cam Warning Stickers/Signs

If you’re a rideshare driver using an interior facing dash cam that records video and audio of your passengers, it’s probably best that you have warnings posted in or on your car letting the riders know.

There are a number of these warning stickers and signs for sale on Amazon, you can view them here
