This low-profile dash cam sits behind your rearview mirror, meaning it won't obstruct your view. The mounting process is quick and easy as well. Just stick it up with the included 3M double-sided adhesive pads. The camera captures 1080p video for excellent clarity, even at night. It's powered via your car's cigarette lighter outlet, and the adapter features a USB port so you can still charge your phone while using the dash cam.

The 170-degree wide-angle lens captures six lanes of traffic so you can get every incident from start to finish. The camera also features an automatic Emergency Recording Mode that uses a built-in gravity sensor to capture incidents and protect that footage from being overwritten.

Note that the camera does not include a microSD card, and you'll want to be sure to have one installed before you start driving around. This option from SanDisk should do the trick, and it's even discounted right now.
