So, you’ve heard a lot about dash cams but are new to the market? You also don’t want to spend the Earth on some unknown piece of new tech for your car, right?
There are suddenly so many dash cams out there these days since they’ve been introduced in the West after making an impression in Russia as well as other Eastern European and Asian countries, that choosing the right one can be a daunting job. A car accessories company named Streetwize has made a nice entry level dash cam – model number SWREC1 – which features respectable specifications and is ideal for the price conscious that might just give you an idea of what these new in-car gadgets are all about and what they are capable of.

Sounds like a pretty neat bit of kit for the novice dash cam owner – especially considering the price. But a few long-term downsides about the Streetwise SWREC1 may be that it features no rear camera or option to add one, which you may find an attractive feature to have when you start looking around at the other products available. There is also no GPS location tracking and no G-force protection protecting recordings from an abrupt or sudden stop. Bearing in mind the main reason that dash cams were invented was to capture any incidents then this is really something that should be considered when buying one. However, if you just want to hop on the dash cam trend but aren’t taking it too seriously, for less than £20 we think you can’t really go wrong with this one.
