The Top 7 Dashcams for Truckers and Drivers of 2020.

The Top 7 Dashcams for Truckers and Drivers of 2020.

Last year, we outlined the top dashcams of 2019. But that was a whole year ago and look at how things have changed since then!

Jokes aside, dashcams have come a long way in a short space of time. So, we thought we’d venture back into the world of dashcams and give you the top-rated ones of 2020. From touch screens to an enhanced frame-per-second rate, this updated list has got it all. However, just because they’re the best of this year, doesn’t mean they have to break the bank. As there are a few entries in this list that might surprise you in terms of cost, whilst still providing truckers and drivers with security and peace of mind on the road.

So, let’s stop waffling and get into it. Here are the top 7 dashcams for truckers and drivers in 2020!

APEMAN C750.

RRP: £99.99

Features: 1080p Recording, Extra Large Display, Touch Screen.

Delivery: Free for Prime Members.

This dashcam shows off just how far these pieces of kit have come recently, and what they’re capable of in 2020. What started as just a simple camera is now a touch screen, wide-angled and multi-view device, perfect for helping drivers. With a waterproof rear camera with parking assistant capabilities, APEMAN really knows what they’re doing when it comes to designing dashcams. With a perfect 5-star review at the time of writing, the C750 is easy to install, retractable, and rotatable. What’s better is that it includes a 32gb SD card, meaning this device is ready to use straight out of the box.

Aigoss J307.

RRP: £33.02

Features: In-Built G-Sensor, 170° Wide-Angle Camera, Easy Use.

Delivery: Same-Day Delivery for Prime Members.

Who’d have thought you could get an almost 5-star rated dashcam for around 30 quid? The Aigoss currently has nearly 300 review scores, giving it a 4.8-star rating on average. With its ability to lock footage when detecting a collision (to prevent losing video proof of any accidents) as well as its loop-recording ability, we’re not surprised at this high rating. However, the price point can’t be taken lightly. With these features, as well as a handful of others, this dashcam comes in at just a fraction of the price of others on this list. If you’re a driver or trucker looking for some added safety on the road, but perhaps can’t afford some of the high-end models, the J307 is a more than capable alternative for your road trips this year.

ThiEYE FCV3BEN-1.

RRP: £107.99

Features: 2.5k Resolution, Right-Side Front Cam, Super Night Vision.

Delivery: Same-Day Delivery for Prime Members.

This confusingly named piece of kit boasts a full range of special features. 2.5k resolution, (optional) external GPS, G-sensor, parking monitoring, reversing aid system, and more. With duel and loop recording, 10” touch screen, and a whole heap of physical accessories, this is arguably the ‘all the bells and whistles’ entry into this list. Granted, not every trucker is into the bells and whistles, but the added safety and security this dashcam provides for those on the road are truly outstanding. So, it’s no surprise that, as of 2020, this dashcam has an average rating of 4.8 stars. So, if you want one of the best devices on the market in your cab to protect you on the road, you should seriously consider the ThiEYE FCV3BEN-1.

APEMAN C860

RRP: £79.99

Features: Front and Rear 170° Lens, UHD Resolution, Seamless Recording.

Delivery: Same-Day Delivery for Prime Members.

No, we haven’t doubled up an entry, this is another APEMAN model dashcam that has made it into the best of this year. Which, if nothing else, speaks volumes about the quality of dashcams APEMAN makes. This model, whilst being slightly cheaper than the C750, also contains some fantastic features for drivers and truckers. From 30FPS recording to the ability to rotate 360°, this dashcam is not to be laughed at. Another nice feature is the ability to display a screensaver to avoid distracting the driver or trucker operating the vehicle, whilst also consuming less power on the road. Additionally, although it’s not included, this small dashcam can support an SD card of up to 128GB, meaning you won’t have to worry about filling up the storage any time soon.

APEMAN C370.

RRP: £29.99

Features: Small Size, 1080p FHD Resolution, Easy Installation.

Link: https://amzn.to/34vSVQp

Delivery: Same-Day Delivery for Prime Members.

It’s a hattrick, APEMAN officially has 3 entries into the Flexistaff top 7 dashcams of 2020. With nearly half of the entries into this list being taken by APEMAN, it’s no wonder they’re the leading dashcam manufacturer in the USA. However, this model is more bare-bones than previous entries. Measuring at just 7.4cm high, 4.8cm long, and 2.6cm wide, it’s a bite-sized dashcam that still provides all the safety measures you’d need on the road. With a screensaver to save power and easy installation, the C370 is the perfect dashcam for truckers and drivers on a budget this year. If dashcam’s in 2020 belonged to anyone, they’d more than likely belong to APEMAN.

Z-Edge Z3D.

RRP: £109.99

Features: 30FPS for Both Front and Rear Cameras, GPS Tracking, In-Built G-Sensor.

Link: https://amzn.to/2HxESRl

Delivery: Free for Prime Members.

The final dashcam on this list is more on the pricey end, but for good reason. Full HD 1920x1080p at 30FPS for both the front and rear cameras? You’ll struggle to get a clearer picture at this price range in a dashcam. Alongside this, the in-built GPS not only your location to be tracked, but also your speed, the time, and the direction you’re travelling in. The G-sensor detects collisions, locking the footage away to avoid corruption or damage. With loop recording and external storage support of up to 128GB, this dashcam is up there with the best of 2020.

Conclusion.
