Adding a dash cam to your car, truck or SUV can help increase the overall safety of both you and others while on the road. A dash cam can be used by insurance companies to prove you weren’t liable or at fault in an accident. Although the benefits of dash cams have been proven repeatedly, there are still a few myths that we wanted to clear up.
So, to that end, here are a few myths we’ve busted about dash cams and the role they play in road safety.
Myth: Dash cams are difficult to install.
Fact: Most high-quality systems are both universal and can be installed in your vehicle a matter of minutes. All of our dash cam systems come with easy-to-follow instructions and a comprehensive user guide, so you can become a pro at using your new system right after it comes out of the box.
In the event you’re pressed for time, or have trouble with installation, our knowledgeable staff can help you get set up, and on the road.
Myth: Dash cam systems are notoriously expensive.
Fact: As the adage goes, “You get what you pay for.” This means if you want higher quality tech, you’re going to have to pay a higher price for it. That doesn’t mean the dash cam system you end up going with will be expensive, though. Most popular dash cam prices run anywhere between $175 on up, and can include a full setup and customer service option. If you want to go hi-tech, look at cameras built into your rearview mirror or dash cams with GPS.

Myth: Dash cams are illegal in the U.S.
Fact: This one’s just flat out false. Granted, there was a time when dash cams were limited to just private car services and police departments, but the industry has opened up tremendously over the past decade or so. Now, motorcyclists, boaters, and other recreational vehicle enthusiasts outfit their machines with dash cams for an added layer of security, safety, and sometimes fun.
