Where should the dash cam be installed for your car?

Where should the dash camera be installed for your car

Now depending on what sort of dash camera you have based on the previous section, hopefully this section here will provide you further insight onto some of the popular areas to install your dash camera.

  1. The front windshield

The first aspect that you might remember when you decide to buy a dash cam is where it should be mounted. The most common places are the rear-view mirror or the windshield. If you want to enjoy a complete picture of what is happening outside, mounting it in your front window is the best option. This is a popular option for those with a single-channel dash camera who wish to see where they are driving and what is happening in front of them.

We believe that the dash cams mounted on your windshield are very useful as they provide an unobstructed view of everything happening in front of your vehicle, great for those long trips. Whether you are on a road trip to the snows or simply want a front-on shot of the scenery in front of you for some marketing material as a social media influencer, the choice is yours with the landscape shot.

  1. The rear window

Similar to the front windshield dash cam installation, the rear window is also another popular option, especially those who opt for the Dual Channel edition, which also happens to be the most commonly installed setup. Applying it to the rear window allows you to capture what is behind the car, in the case of rear-end accidents which occur quite frequently on the road. At least by having 2 sets of eyes for both the front and rear, you are in a good position to capture any unexpected events.

  1. Inside Your Car

If you have a 3-channel dash camera, then we would highly recommend the 3rd camera be set up inside your car, to give allow full visibility of the car interior. This is particularly an excellent option for those who are involved in share-riding, carpooling or taxi services where there are passengers in the car. You would have most likely read it over the internet or heard on the news of various assaults and theft charges occurring whilst driving passengers. Installing a dash camera inside would allow you to extract footage to ensure that your interior surveillance is well monitored. For many, driving other passengers is the only source of income and employment, installing an interior camera would be a worthy investment, especially if you are considering a BlackVue dash camera, which is amongst the best out there.
