Approximately 1 in 5 Australian drivers have a dashcam installed in their car. An important investment on the road, we’ll explain 5 reasons why you need a dashcam in your vehicle.

Dashcams are small cameras that records the road when you’re driving. They are usually powered by the cigarette lighter cable or can be hardwired into the fuse box. Dashcams are mounted onto your windscreen inside the car.
Often dashcams record footage of an accident, road rage incidents or when a pedestrian crosses in front of you. The dashcam records automatically once you have started the car and records in a loop onto an external memory device such as a micro SD card.
