The Mi Vue 420 also includes an integrated GPS receiver, which records your car’s location and speed along with the video.Like the Go Safe 535, the Mi Vue 420 provides a number of safety alerts that can be useful, although we found some to be overly active and annoying.The rear-facing camera footage was also clear and sharp, although at night it could be contrasty and dark (which is typical for this group).The forward-facing camera has a suction mount and a ball joint that allows you to quickly reposition it, while the rear camera uses a sticker mount and can pivot to the appropriate angle.The Vantrue On Dash N2 Pro has two cameras in its housing to record both the view in front of your car and the interior of your vehicle.
Its video quality ranked among the best of the models we tested, plus it’s compact and easy to use.
The 65W offers 1080p resolution and a 180-degree field of view that covers a wide area—great for scenic vistas—but makes cars in front look a little farther away.
It also comes with GPS, Wi-Fi, voice control, and a number of safety alerts, including forward-collision, lane-departure, and safety-camera warnings (the last only with a subscription).
Among the three dual-channel dash cams we tested, the Mi Vue 480D’s front cam provided the best overall image quality, with sharp, 1296p resolution and a 140-degree field of view.
Our daytime video clips had good color accuracy and a wide dynamic range, and we found that license plates and street signs were easier to read than in video from the other models.
