The Best Dash Cam For Truckers (Record Everything Outside The Cab)

Best Dash Cam For TrucksDo you live on the road driving from state to state in all types of weather and road conditions?

Never knowing when an idiot in a small car will pull out in front of your rig from a blind spot…

It wasn’t your fault!

Wouldn’t it be great to have a camera rolling when it happens so you have a video of the incident?

Multipurpose Dashboard Cameras

Many truckers already have dash camera gear that they use in their pickup or car. Then all they have to do is remount it on the dashboard or windshield of their rig and plug it into the 12v accessory power outlet.

The best dash cam for truckers is the one that’s mounted and turned on, even a cheap kit is better than nothing.

How do I pick a dash cam?

You may not need a dual-lens kit with front and rear cameras but you definitely want a good wide angle view of the front of your cab.

And you’ll probably want something nice with GPS, Night Vision, 32GB Storage, Motion Detection, HD Video and Audio Recording. For more information about camera features check out our dashcam beginner’s guide.

BTW, motion detection and night vision will monitor what’s going outside while you sleep…

Below you’ll find a list of 10 cameras for you to review. The prices are low, medium and high, to fit every budget and use case – even to record a trucker vlog for posting on YouTube…
