Miofive dash cam deals Prime Day 2023 (US)

Miofive 4K Dash Cam: was $149.99

Miofive 4K Dash Cam: was $149.99 now $112.49 at Amazon
This single 4K dash cam received top marks in our full Miofive 4K dash cam review thanks to its easy setup, sharp 4K video, internal memory, and slim form factor.

Building on the Miofive 4K dash cam, the Miofive Dual Dash Cam adds a separate second 2K camera that can capture the rear view of your car, or ride-share drivers might opt to position it as an internal facing camera instead. 

The camera is super easy to set up, has a slick UI and logical file storage that makes locating those all-important moments a breeze. You'll struggle to find a better dash cam system for less than $200.

Vantrue E1: was £149.99

Vantrue E1: was £149.99 now $99.99
The single-camera Vantrue E1 got a glowing TechRadar review, thanks to its compact design, 160-degree lens, and 2.5K video recording with an option to double the frame rate at Full HD 1080p. It also benefits from GPS, Wi-Fi, decent smartphone and computer applications, a magnetic quick-release windscreen mount, and an included remote control. You'll need to purchase a microSD card separately, while we recommend the £20 polarizing lens filter, too.

Vantrue N2 Pro: was $199.99

Vantrue N2 Pro: was $199.99 now $118.99
The Vantrue N2 Pro is a refreshingly simple dual-view dash cam designed for taxi and rideshare drivers. It records the road ahead and the interior of your car in 1080p Full HD. There’s no Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, but we would argue that these, and the smartphone app they usually connect to, are often unnecessary additions to dashboard cameras. The N2 Pro isn’t the best-looking dash cam around, but it records clear, sharp video and is very easy to use. It lacks GPS, but that can be added with Vantrue’s optional windscreen mount.

Vantrue E3: was $359.99

Vantrue E3: was $359.99 now $229.99
Built to the same look and design as the highly-rated single-camera Vantrue E1, this three-camera dash cam can simultaneously record the front (2K) at a wider-than normal 160-degrees, rear (1080p) and interior cabin (1080p), plus it features GPS, 5GHz Wi-Fi, voice control and a parking monitor. Top stuff. 

Viofo A229: was $234.99

Viofo A229: was $234.99 now $179.99 at Amazon
It may not be the biggest name in dash cams nor produce the most attractive models, but Viofo has shown us its cameras can record decent video for their respective price points, and the A229 is a case in point, with dual 2K cameras, 5GHz Wi-Fi connection and generous 2.4in LCD display. 

Viofo A139: was $308.99

Viofo A139: was $308.99 now $239.99 at Amazon
The Viofo A139 has not one, nor two, but three cameras and is the ideal choice for pro drivers clocking up the miles in particular, covering front, rear, and cabin interiors simultaneously. The 1440p front camera and additional 1080p cameras aren't to the same standard as class-leading dash cams, but this is a good value dash cam, especially on Prime Day.

What is a dash cam?

If you’re not familiar with them, dash cams attach to the windscreen of your car and constantly record footage of the road ahead. Then, if a collision is detected, the most recent footage is securely saved to the internal storage / microSD card. These recordings could help show what happened to cause the collision, and who is to blame.

More advanced dash cams also record footage while parked. Some can be hardwired to the car for a constant power supply from the battery, instead of plugging into the 12V lighter socket, and others even have driver assistance systems like speed camera and forward collision warnings.

We've tested many dash cams over the years and put the top models – including the Miofive 4K Dash Cam – in our guide to the best dash cams, where you'll find even more info about dash cams, too.

How to choose the best dash cam for you

Video quality is by far the most important consideration when buying a dash cam. Ideally you want a camera that records in a resolution of at least 1080p, also known as Full HD. Some also record in the slightly higher 1440p, and more expensive models shoot in 4K for extra clarity.

Also important is the inclusion of HDR, which helps to retain details in harsh lighting conditions, and a wide lens. Ideally, the lens should be at least 140 degrees, while some dash cams have a 180-degree lens for recording footage that stretches right across the front of your car, and to the sides slightly too.

Driver assistance systems won’t be for everyone. In our experience they don’t work as well as those fitted to most new cars, and can become quite annoying. But if you really want these, then expect to pay a little more for your dash cam, and for it to be larger than other, simpler models.

The vast majority of dash cams are powered by a cable connected to either the car’s USB port or 12V lighter socket. Some dash cams like the Miofive models in this page make use of a supercapacitor, which holds a few seconds’ worth of charge when power to the camera is cut and safely save the most recent footage before switching off – an action that could be crucial if the camera’s power is lost due to a collision.

Most dash cams have the option to record audio, but we imagine most drivers would opt to switch this off in the interest of passenger privacy. Voice control is also a feature that some dash cams have, but which in our experience is rarely used. Garmin dash cams have this, and while it is useful for saving footage manually (when there isn’t collision for the camera to detect), we don’t consider it a must-have.
