1-Channel dash cameras are perfect for those who just want to keep a record on what’s happening whilst they’re on the road. This would be for protection and verification if there’s an accident or issue whilst driving.
Typically, these are the most cost-effective dash cameras you can get, they’re a great place to start, however, for a fuller protection, opt for 2-Channel, or 3-Channel options.
Adding a rear channel to your vehicle’s protection, 2-Channel dash cameras are becoming the most popular option when purchasing online.
For those who drive for a living, be it commercial, or ride sharing like Uber, having the ability to see what’s happening in-front, behind and in-cabin can be amazingly helpful. These new 3-Channel dash camera solutions build on a traditional 2-Channel dash camera system by adding an internally facing Infrared (IR) camera to keep an eye on what’s going on inside the car during the day, and during the night.
Having a level of protection and record for trucks is also a great idea. Combining a standard front facing camera with a heavy duty, utility camera for the rear of the truck, you can get the same level of vision and protection in a 12V or 24V truck.
Dash cameras online now come in two qualities, Full HD or 4K. in most cases, the features and capabilities of the units are the same. The difference being the quality of the image it’s capable of recording.
The Full HD models record in 1920x1080p, which is the quality of a DVD movie. The 4K models record in 2,160x3840p, which is the quality of a Blu-Ray movie. The benefit, or difference with 4K is when replaying the footage back, you’re able to ‘see’ up to 4 car-lengths ahead of you with the aid of digital zoom. On the other hand, Full HD will give you 1-1.5 car-lengths.

Need to record your vehicle whilst it’s parked? Need to see who hit your car in a carpark? Park mode is what’s required in your dash camera installation. This mode enables the dash camera to monitor your car’s battery and continue recording until your battery drops below a certain level (otherwise your car’s battery will drain to the point you won’t be able to start it again).
In some modern, European and EV vehicles, an external battery will need to be purchased and installed to enable this feature. Please have a chat with Bankstown Sound & Marine to find out if your car needs an external battery or not.
