Best Front & Rear Dash Cams

Discover Our Best Front & Rear Dash Cams of the Year

Best Front & Rear Dash Cams

This refers to a set of dash cams that can record both the front and rear exterior of the vehicle. This setup uses a front camera as well as a rear camera, connected via a connecting cable, and mounted on the front and rear windshields.

Front and rear dash cams offer much more protection than the regular 1-channel setup, as it provides a lot more security for users on-the-go and during parking mode. They are, by far, our most popular sellers.

If you're interested in learning more about the differences between dash cams, take a read over our What is a Dash Cam guide.

The best dash cams that we carry right now at BlackboxMyCar are the Thinkware U1000, the BlackVue DR900S-2CH, and the VIOFO A129 Pro. These high-quality dash cameras will offer the best video quality at full HD at a minimum and will be complete with built-in premium features including g-sensor, parking mode, video quality, form factor, GPS / wi-fi, night vision, front view and rear view protection and more!

Thinkware U1000

Voted BEST ALL-ROUND by Dash Cam Experts

If you are looking for the best of the best parking mode dash cams, look no further than the Thinkware U1000. It is the latest and greatest from Thinkware that features 4K UHD recording from the front-facing camera and 2K QHD from the rear camera. It is currently the highest-resolution 2-channel dash cam on the market. The nighttime video quality is very impressive with the Sony STARVIS sensors (front and rear).

Energy Saving 2.0 with the optional U1000 RADAR sensor drastically lowers power consumption in parking mode, making the U1000 one of the most powerful yet low power consumption 2-channel dash cam system on the market.
