Reddit's Dash Cam Benchmarks

In the rest of this post we will review the above dash cams more in depth to get a better understanding on which one will fit the best.

Here are some of the things redditors cared about most when they were looking for a dash cam:

  • Video Resolution
  • Size
  • Price

Let's see how each dash cam measures up for the above benchmarks! Starting with Redditors favorite least expensive dash cam. 

Reddit's Favorite Dash Cam for Uber and Lyft: 

Garmin Dash Cam 55

Video Resolution

Out of the 5 cameras we are reviewing the video resolution on this camera is about average, at 1440p.


Being the smallest camera we are reviewing it is roughly 2 ounces and less than 2 inches tall. 


This camera costs around $200. 

There are several versions of the Garmin Dash cam: the 45, 55, 65, 65 plus UHS-I card with adapter and the speak plus with Amazon Alexa.  We have chosen to review the Dash Cam 55 due to the amount of feedback on reddit.  Redditor's have said that the 55 is their favorite.  It is small, includes a memory card and has many different features. 

If you are driving late at night (or in the middle of the day) and start getting tired this dash cam will actually set off a warning letting you know that you are straying too far out of your lane.  It will also let you know if you are driving too closely to the car in front of you. Like the A119 this camera also has the G-sensor, so when an incident is detected it will record the entire thing and not let the loop feature of the camera record over it.  

One of the reasons it is a more expensive dash cam is because it has built in Wi-Fi so you can sync the videos directly onto your smartphone . After downloading the correct app.  Which makes it easier to share with insurance companies, authorities and even your friends. 

Quotes from Reddit About This Dash Cam

"This is a very compact dashcam which will lend itself to a stealth installation. It records in super high definition at 1440P, has voice commands, driver alert warnings, and has a very good parking mode feature."


"After much debate over getting the A119 or something else, I decided to splurge and get the Garmin dashcam 55...First impressions: Very high quality. Well designed mounting system, Includes SD card, Lots of settings to mess around with including voice controls. I would definitely recommend this camera as a good option in the $200 price range."


Overall rating :  4.1 / 5

Reddit's Favorite Budget Dash Cam: 

Mobius Actio​​n Camera

Video Resolution

The Mobius Action Camera has the ability to record full HD video in 1080p. 


This dash cam is very light weight and portable.  IT is roughly 2 inches tall.


This dash cam is the cheapest out of the 5.  Coming it at right around $80. 

The Mobius Action Camera has gained a lot of attention online due to its price.  It is a mini camera that has lots of potential uses.  Several uses that Amazon lists include: skydiving, being attached to a RC vehicle, being on the dash of a car, and even being on someones helmet at the race track.

In order to use this particular camera as a dash cam you would have to find the best way to mount it.  There are many inexpensive ways to do this that such as an adhesive pad or a saddle mount. 

Depending on the size of the memory card you put in the camera will determine the amount of video footage it can take at one time.  It does feature loop recording so if the storage is used up it will record over the oldest video. 

One downside to this particular camera is that the battery lasts up to 120 minutes.

Quotes from Reddit About This Dash Cam

"Versatile: Mobius ($80-100 USD) (Requires separate purchase: Power cable or hardwire kit + Micro SD card + adhesive Mount) + Recommended purchase Super capacitor"


"Also, i'm reading reviews saying that the mobius is better, but just a bit more expensive."


"Mobius has worked wonders for me. Depending on options you can buy cam and mounting accessories for $100-$150."

Most Mentioned Dash Cam on Reddit: 


Video Resolution

The A119 has HD recording with 1440p. 


This dash cam has a two inch LCD screen so you are able to see exactly what the camera is recording, but as a result of the screen it is one of the larger cameras. 


The A119 costs roughly $90. Making it one of the cheaper options on the market. 

This dash cam looks a bit different than the others on our list.  It comes with a 2 inch screen so you are able to see exactly what the cam is recording. Due to the size it is able to clearly see both sides of the road.  But it is still hidden enough that passerby's may not recognize or notice it. 

This camera is able to plug directly into your car so you never have to worry about whether the battery is fully charged or not.  Just make sure to keep an eye on your car battery.  Because it is the capacitor model it does better in hot and cold weather. 

The storage capacity of this camera fully depends on the size of the SD card you choose to purchase.  If you purchase a 64GB memory card it is able to store up to 7 hours of footage.  Because of the build-in G-sensor if it detects your vehicle has been hit, the camera will protect that footage so it is not deleted.  You can of course manually delete it once you have it saved elsewhere.  Once the SD card is full the loop recording comes into play and it will record over the oldest footage.  Just make sure to save anything onto your computer that you want to keep before this happens. 

It is very easy to instal, use an adhesive pad and attached it directly to your windshield, or anywhere else that you want it. 

Quotes from Reddit About This Dash Cam

"I have an A119 Good picture quality and a decent price."


"A119 all the way..."


"I've had my A119 for 8 months now and it's been flawless for me - I haven't had a single problem with it. It never leaves my car, either - it stays out in the cold NY winter and the hot summer.

For the price, I'm very happy with the video quality, too."
