Things To Consider Before Buying a Dash Cam
Now that we have begun to crack the surface of why you need to get a dash cam for Uber, yesterday! Let’s take a look at the necessary features to consider when purchasing and installing a dash cam in your rideshare ride. (1
This will depend largely on your style and type of rideshare driving. If you are a part-time driver, you might want to consider a more cost-effective dash cam with fewer features. However, if you are a full-time driver, you might want to spring for every single bell and whistle there is on the market, today.
Interior or exterior video recording
The majority of dash cams offer one-way video recording capabilities. This can provide you with a clear view of either your windshield or your passenger. Whether you are more concerned with recording your passengers or in capturing potential accidents, you’ll need to determine whether or not you want front or rear facing cameras. There are, of course, dash cam models that feature a two-way recording capability, however, those models tend to be more expensive.
Determine your budget first and see if a one way or two-way camera is worth the initial investment. Many drivers get by just fine with a single directional camera, though they know which direction is important for them to record. If your primary concern is passenger-related, a single direction camera can help you.
Interior Audio recording
Another great feature to think about is an audio recording feature. The overwhelming majority of dash cams that won’t break the bank do not offer audio recording. In the event of a dispute between a passenger and yourself, an audio recording to accompany the video recording can be incredibly useful. Keep in mind that audio recordings can be distorted in accidents or if sound rises above the appropriate decibel levels. If you spring for a model that has audio recording capabilities make absolutely sure you have calculated the need and the return on your investment.
Infrared or Night Vision
If you drive in the wee hours of the morning or during the night rush an infrared or night vision feature can be beyond helpful. Night Vision can be the difference between catching a passenger in the act or being hamstrung by low-level light. Accidents are also illuminated by this simple feature, even though it does cost extra. If you are a night-time driver you will want to find a dash cam with a night vision feature.
Motion activation is a feature that might not seem to be helpful, but in the event of a hit and run when you are parked, it could save you both time and money. Not all rideshare drivers have a cushy garage to store their vehicle in and I know first hand that living in an urban setting comes with certain dangers. If you’ve been the victim of a hit and run while you were parked then you know how much you wish you had video evidence of the driver. With motion activation, you can increase your chances of catching the thief, hit and run driver, or the vandal that keyed or egged your car.
Memory is one of the biggest features you need to consider when choosing a dash cam for Uber. If you are a full-time driver or even if you are a part-time driver, you will need a certain capacity to record the events of the road. If you plan on driving full-time, you will need a dash cam that features an enormous storehouse of memory capabilities, or at the very least, one with expandable memory.
Most dash cams feature a micro or USB memory slot or port. This allows you to choose or upgrade the amount of video and audio you can record. Some of the lower-end models do not contain their own memory drive nor do they feature expandable slots, so keep that in mind. You will want to be recording as close to full-time as you can and if you run out of memory right before an accident or incident you could be up a creek without a paddle. (2
One of the more common features that exist in the realm of dash cams is the loop recording feature. Everyone knows that recording video requires space as we talked about above. But what if you had a feature that automatically recorded and deleted information stored on your memory card?
The majority of dash cams feature what is called a loop recording. This allows drivers to continuously record and drive without losing a second of valuable footage. It works by deleting the oldest data in favor of recording the newest data. This can be quite useful, particularly once you have swapped out memory card after memory card. The only catch is, that if you aren’t careful, you could record over important information. This is not a major concern as major incidents and accidents would automatically prompt you to secure the footage as soon as possible, effectively eliminating the chance of overwriting the pertinent information.
Accident Detection and Image Stabilization
One of the things I am sure you have considered is what does footage look like when you get slammed into? Well, if you choose a dash cam for Uber with accident detection and image stabilization, you are far more likely to get a clean shot. While these features are not foolproof, they do give you a stronger possibility to capture the events that have sidelined your ride.
One of the key considerations in your dash cam is the viewing angle of the camera both front and back. Viewing angles range from 90 degrees to 180 degrees, but the primary question most drivers have is which angle is best? The common answer is: the larger the angle, the more potential to capture an event.
90 degrees is commonly considered to be one of the worst angles available on the market. Inversely, 180 degrees is often considered to be detrimental to image clarity due to distortion. Some models are capable of getting around this limitation, but overall, it is best to find a dash cam for Uber with a 150-degree angle.
One of the less attractive or tech-savvy features of a dash cam is how you mount it. I can assure you that no matter the features you end up settling on, few will be as important as how it mounts. Some feature a suction cup model, others feature adhesion methods. The general consensus is that suction cups are the best available method. That might seem counter to your history with suction cups, however, I can assure you that most suction cup technology has dramatically improved. Whatever method your dash cam has, you will want to make sure that it is both durable and sturdy in its construction. A cheap mount will do you no favors.
Record GPS position and speed
One of the features you might want to consider exists on most of the higher-end model dash cams. GPS and speedometers are critical pieces of information to record, particularly when you’ve been in an accident. GPS data is difficult to fake and can dramatically increase your chances of winning a case.
The smaller the camera, the better!
One feature that not many figures into the decision is the actual size of the dash cam. A bulky dash cam could obstruct your view, therefore increasing your risk of receiving a ticket. Also, it is important to note that the less noticeable the camera is, the less likely you are to be confronted by riders or officers about your dash cam. Considering the strange legality of dash cam utilization, it is a feature that is of particular importance.
