It puts a focus on simplicity and has a useful set of voice control commands, a handy smartphone app, while the camera is easy to swap out if you own multiple vehicles.

Was Black Friday really the best time to buy a dash cam?
As a general rule, Black Friday and Cyber Monday is a great time to buy a new dash cam, but not every deal is as good as it may initially seem – which is where TechRadar comes in.
In some cases retailers mark up the prices of cameras in the run-up to Black Friday, in order to offer a seemingly bigger discount during the actual sales event. This doesn't necessarily make them a bad buy – on many occasions, their prices still drop to record lows. But in the grand scheme, the percentage saving may not be quite as large as advertised.
In these situations, we will make sure it's a genuinely good buy by looking further back on the product's price history. Many dash cams do simply drop to their lowest-ever price for a brief period over Black Friday, particularly in Amazon's Lightning deals, and these are often among the best dash cam deals of the year.
The good news if you have missed this year's sale is that a number of the deals live on in the days after.
