Which of the motorists has nev­er thought about pur­chas­ing a DVR? This use­ful device in the event of an acci­dent will help you prove your case in court and in a dis­pute with the insur­ance com­pa­ny, and you may also acci­den­tal­ly film an unusu­al acci­dent on the road, which will become a real hit on Youtube. How­ev­er, the vari­ety of mod­els and the dif­fer­ence in their cost will con­fuse not only a begin­ner, but also an expe­ri­enced motorist. How to choose a DVR in 2021 — let’s fig­ure it out togeth­er.

The best reg­is­trars — our rec­om­men­da­tions

UPD-2022. This rat­ing of the best DVRs remains rel­e­vant at the begin­ning of 2022. If we were com­pil­ing it now, then most like­ly we would add a mod­el from Road­gid — for exam­ple, Pre­mier or X9. But you can safe­ly trust the infor­ma­tion from our selec­tion today.

Why should I buy a registrar?

In many ways, DVRs gained their pop­u­lar­i­ty thanks to Youtube videos with var­i­ous inci­dents on the roads (from acci­dents to the fall of the Chelyabin­sk mete­orite), but, of course, the func­tions of these devices are not lim­it­ed to the pro­duc­tion of viral con­tent.

The main goal of the reg­is­trar is to resolve con­flict sit­u­a­tions on the road. This is an extreme­ly use­ful thing for all motorists. DVR:

  • Will help to doc­u­ment the acci­dent for the use of video evi­dence in court
  • Pro­tects against mis­con­duct by law enforce­ment offi­cers
  • Will pro­vide a weighty argu­ment (video record­ing) in case of con­tro­ver­sial issues in com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the insur­ance com­pa­ny
  • For taxi dri­vers — it will record ille­gal actions on the part of the client

If you already have a recorder, the arti­cle will help you under­stand if it’s time to upgrade it — over the past few years, these devices have not only seri­ous­ly “pumped” the qual­i­ty of video record­ing, but also acquired new fea­tures, and some Wi-Fi chips have even begun to appear. in bud­get mod­els.

Choose a registrar in five minutes

If you do not want to deal with all the char­ac­ter­is­tics in detail, in this part we will give an easy algo­rithm: by answer­ing four ques­tions in sequence, you will quick­ly and cor­rect­ly choose a DVR for your pur­pos­es.

1. Single chamber or double chamber model?

Most dri­vers will be fine with a sin­gle cam­era device, but you can choose a recorder with an addi­tion­al park­ing cam­era. For taxi dri­vers, pub­lic trans­port work­ers, you will need a two-cham­ber mod­el in a sin­gle hous­ing — the sec­ond cam­era will film what is hap­pen­ing in the cab­in.

2. How much are you willing to spend on the device?

We rec­om­mend not pay­ing atten­tion to reg­is­trars cheap­er than 3–4 thou­sand rubles at all: it will be mon­ey thrown to the wind. And if such a “bud­get” mod­el fails you when shoot­ing an acci­dent, the con­se­quences can be much more expen­sive.

For sin­gle-cham­ber mod­els, a quite decent device can be tak­en in the region of 5 thou­sand rubles, how­ev­er, most like­ly, it will be a work­horse with­out any bells and whis­tles. The gold­en mean is DVRs in the range of 5–10 thou­sand rubles: in addi­tion to the decent qual­i­ty of the cap­tured image, pleas­ant bonus­es are pos­si­ble in the form of Wi-Fi and night mode.

Xiaomi 70mai A500 Dash Cam Pro Plus

Despite the “humane” price tag, the char­ac­ter­is­tics of Xiao­mi 70mai A500 are at the lev­el of many more advanced mod­els. Pho­to: miodessa.com

The bud­get reg­is­trar (5,850 rubles) Xiao­mi 70mai A500 takes a high-qual­i­ty pic­ture both day and night, has a res­o­lu­tion of 2592 x 1944 pix­els, as well as a uni­ver­sal view­ing angle of 140 degrees. Read more about the mean­ing of these char­ac­ter­is­tics in the next sec­tion.

For 10–15 thou­sand you will find recorders with the high­est video qual­i­ty. There are also pre­mi­um devices from 18 thou­sand rubles, with bells and whis­tles like cloud stor­age.

A decent two-cham­ber mod­el with a basic (640 x 480) rear-view cam­era costs around 5–8 thou­sand rubles. If you want it in Full HD, be pre­pared to shell out 10–15 thou­sand. Pre­mi­um devices cost $20,000 or more.

Which DVR mod­el is bet­ter to choose in dif­fer­ent price cat­e­gories, we will tell you in our rec­om­men­da­tions at the end of the arti­cle.

3. Do I need a radar detector or speed cameras?

A DVR with a radar detec­tor (police radar detec­tor) or speed­cam (built-in data­base with the loca­tion of sta­tion­ary radars and cam­eras) is called a hybrid. Decent options in this seg­ment cost around 10–15 thou­sand rubles. Cheap­er devices often don’t know how to iden­ti­fy “dan­ger” types and rarely receive updates. More expen­sive devices (from 15 thou­sand) often have addi­tion­al options such as Wi-Fi or very advanced radars.

4. Are additional features important?

They will be list­ed in detail below, here we only note that auto­mat­ic on and off (they are present on almost all mod­ern mod­els) and Wi-Fi are real­ly use­ful. The rest are pure­ly option­al.

What characteristics to look for?

Video quality

1. Permission (very important)

Res­o­lu­tion is one of the main para­me­ters, but it is quite dif­fi­cult to make a mis­take with it. Mod­els with HD 720p res­o­lu­tion are almost non-exis­tent even in the low­est price seg­ment. How­ev­er, even this pic­ture qual­i­ty is enough in most sit­u­a­tions. On the oth­er hand, the bet­ter the res­o­lu­tion, the eas­i­er it is to rec­og­nize the num­ber of anoth­er car.

The stan­dard for DVRs today is Full HD 1920 x 1080 pix­els. You will find this res­o­lu­tion in both cheap and expen­sive mod­els. Super HD is also quite pop­u­lar, it is slight­ly larg­er than Full HD — 2304 x 1296 pix­els. There are even more fan­cy options, up to 4K, but here you need to spec­i­fy two points.

First­ly, increas­ing the res­o­lu­tion leads to an increase in the size of video files, and there­fore the mem­o­ry card will fill up faster. You will need a larg­er and high­er class mem­o­ry card (more on this below).

Sec­ond­ly, the res­o­lu­tion is not the same as the final qual­i­ty of the record­ing (below we will look at a num­ber of oth­er fac­tors that affect pic­ture qual­i­ty), so good Full HD will some­times be bet­ter than bad 4K.

In gen­er­al, stick with Full HD or Super HD mod­els, and oth­er things being equal, it’s not worth pay­ing extra for a high­er res­o­lu­tion.

AdvoCam-FD8 Red-II

Advo­Cam-FD8 Red-II: high-qual­i­ty pic­ture in Super HD for 7,500 rubles. Pho­to: yamobi.ru

DVR Advo­Cam-FD8 Red-II shoots Super HD video with high detail. The mod­el is equipped with a night mode and a built-in mem­o­ry of 256 MB, thanks to which you can cre­ate a back­up copy of small clips. The device does not have many addi­tion­al fea­tures such as Wi-Fi and GPS, but the price (7500 rubles) does not bite at all, espe­cial­ly giv­en the good pic­ture.

2. Frame rate (very important)

Per­haps even more crit­i­cal para­me­ter than res­o­lu­tion. The recorder records video while mov­ing, there­fore, in order not to skip frames and avoid motion blur (the so-called motion blur), fre­quen­cy must be at least 30 frames per sec­ond. Even at 24 and 25 fps, you can get blur­ry images at night.

A fre­quen­cy of 60 fps will give a smoother pic­ture, but here with the naked eye you are unlike­ly to notice the dif­fer­ence from 30 fps. But the file size will increase notice­ably, so there is not much point in chas­ing such a fre­quen­cy.

3. Viewing angle (very important)

Anoth­er essen­tial para­me­ter of video record­ing. The DVR should cap­ture as wide a space as pos­si­ble in front of the vehi­cle, includ­ing adja­cent lanes of the road and vehi­cles (and peo­ple and pos­si­bly ani­mals) on the side of the road. The view­ing angle of 120–140 degrees can be called opti­mal — three lanes of the road will fall into the frame. Tak­ing less is def­i­nite­ly not worth it, tak­ing more is a mat­ter of per­son­al pref­er­ence.

Housing and interface

1. Camera size (very important)

All obsta­cles to view while dri­ving can be dan­ger­ous, so mod­els with a large body / cam­era should be avoid­ed. If the glass is already cov­ered with air puri­fiers, key fobs and transpon­ders, the recorder will block the view even more. All in all, the small­er the cam­era, the safer. The size of the device direct­ly cor­re­lates with the form fac­tor.

2. Form factor (important)

The most com­mon type is the clas­sic box. The case size in such recorders depends main­ly on the diag­o­nal of the dis­play (more on that lat­er).

Clas­sic case in the form of a box. Pho­to: powerplanetonline.com

Sig­nif­i­cant­ly save space on the glass reg­is­trars with a remote cam­era. As the name sug­gests, the cam­era is placed on the glass and the rest of the elec­tron­ics, dis­play and con­trols can be mount­ed in a con­ve­nient loca­tion where they do not inter­fere with the view. This option is also great for motor­cy­cles and scoot­ers.

Mod­els with two cam­eras in one hous­ing (one direct­ed to the road, and the sec­ond direct­ed to the salon) are most often used by taxi and pub­lic trans­port dri­vers. Such reg­is­trars are also con­ve­nient for mon­i­tor­ing the per­son­nel of com­mer­cial vehi­cles.

AdvoCam-FD Black DUO

Two cam­eras in one hous­ing make the Advo­Cam-FD Black DUO the right choice for taxis. Pho­to: autodela.ru

Advo­Cam-FD Black DUO is a fair­ly bud­get mod­el with two cam­eras in one body, which is suit­able for taxi dri­vers and pub­lic trans­port. Both cam­eras shoot in Full HD, while the cam­era aimed at the inte­ri­or is equipped with an IR light that auto­mat­i­cal­ly turns on in the dark. Now the mod­el can be found for 8,000 rubles.

An inter­est­ing and con­ve­nient option is the reg­is­trar in the form of an over­lay on the rear-view mir­ror. Thus, the rear-view mir­ror turns into a screen if desired, which is con­ve­nient for con­trol­ling the recorder. When choos­ing this form fac­tor, it makes sense to con­sid­er options with an addi­tion­al rear park­ing cam­era. The pic­ture from it is auto­mat­i­cal­ly dis­played on the screen when reverse gear is engaged. At the same time, for the con­ve­nience of park­ing, a mod­el with even the sim­plest rear cam­era (for exam­ple, 640 x 480 pix­els) is suit­able.

Xiao­mi 70mai Dash Cam Wide dis­plays a pic­ture in the entire width of the mir­ror, it is pos­si­ble to con­nect the rear cam­era via a microUSB con­nec­tor. Com­plete with a night rear view cam­era Midrive RC05, the mod­el can be pur­chased for 6,890 rubles.

There are also cylin­dri­cal recorders, they take up lit­tle space, but they usu­al­ly do not have a rear dis­play.

Bul­let recorders take up lit­tle space, but they usu­al­ly don’t have a dis­play. Pho­to: forbes.com

Anoth­er option is reg­u­lar recorders that are inte­grat­ed into the car and con­nect­ed direct­ly to the on-board net­work. They are select­ed indi­vid­u­al­ly depend­ing on the mod­el of the car and are installed through the ser­vice.

3. Display (important)

Most DVRs have a dis­play of 1.5 to 3.5 inch­es diag­o­nal­ly. Dis­plays as small as 2 inch­es make it easy to quick­ly adjust set­tings and pre­view footage. In mod­els with­out a dis­play, you will need a smart­phone or com­put­er for view­ing and set­tings, which is not always con­ve­nient.

4. Controls (worth noting)

It is bet­ter to give pref­er­ence to mod­els with clear­ly labeled and eas­i­ly acces­si­ble con­trols. Even if the basic set­tings are made via the touch screen, the but­tons for quick func­tions can come in handy in unex­pect­ed sit­u­a­tions.

5. Mount (important)

The video recorder (or rather, its brack­et) is attached to the glass using ZM adhe­sive tape or a vac­u­um suc­tion cup. Scotch tape is more reli­able, but it is dis­pos­able. Using a vac­u­um suc­tion cup, you can rearrange the device on the glass, but if the glass is not wiped well before mount­ing, it may fall off. If this is your first recorder and you do not know where to attach it, you should take the suc­tion cup option.

If this is your first recorder, it is bet­ter to choose a suc­tion cup mod­el. Pho­to: dixnews.ru

Accord­ing to the method of attach­ing the recorder to the brack­et, the best option would be a mag­net­ic mount — so you can quick­ly dis­con­nect the device when leav­ing the car.

As for the pow­er sup­ply, it is bet­ter to pay atten­tion to mod­els in which the wire is insert­ed into the brack­et, and not into the recorder itself — this way you will get rid of the need to remove the wire from the recorder every time you take it out of the car.

Other specifications and additional features

1. Memory (important)

Mod­ern DVRs use the loop record­ing func­tion (if it is not avail­able, you should not pur­chase such a DVR) — if there is not enough free space for a fresh video, the old record­ing is erased, so the same amount of mem­o­ry will be stored on the card. This means that it is not worth chas­ing reg­is­trars that sup­port huge mem­o­ry cards. The opti­mal card size for sin­gle-cham­ber reg­is­trars is 16 GB, for dual-cham­ber reg­is­trars — from 16 GB.

The opti­mal amount of mem­o­ry for a sin­gle-cham­ber mod­el is 16 GB. Pho­to: ichip.ru

The write speed of the card is also impor­tant, it is deter­mined by its class. If you use a card of an inap­pro­pri­ate class (low­er), mal­func­tions may occur. To record in Full HD, you need a card of at least class 10, for Super HD and 4K — from UHS Speed ​​​​Class 1 (U1).

Some DVRs (most­ly mid-range and above) come with a small amount of built-in mem­o­ry that can be used to back up impor­tant videos.

2. Processor (optional)

There is no point in chas­ing the best proces­sor when choos­ing a reg­is­trar. Even if you have the most advanced proces­sor, but the rest of the hard­ware and soft­ware fall short of it, you will not get any­thing good. Ambarel­la proces­sors are con­sid­ered a reli­able option, but in any case, look at the rest of the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the device. In gen­er­al, we can say that the proces­sor does not deter­mine which DVR will be the best. But, if you buy an unknown brand DVR with an unpop­u­lar proces­sor, it is bet­ter to check its spec­i­fi­ca­tions or read reviews on the Inter­net.

3. Automatic turn on / off (important)

Check that your DVR has the func­tion to auto­mat­i­cal­ly turn on when the engine starts. Oth­er­wise, the well-known law of mean­ness may work: some­thing hap­pened on the road, and the reg­is­trar was turned off. Today, most mod­ern DVRs (not just the best ones) for cars are equipped with this fea­ture.

4. WiFi (useful)

If the recorder is equipped with a Wi-Fi mod­ule, you can remote­ly con­nect to the device from a smart­phone or tablet. In some mod­els, thanks to Wi-Fi, the option is avail­able to view videos from a smart­phone with­out first down­load­ing the entire video. This can be handy in sit­u­a­tions where the video needs to be watched imme­di­ate­ly. Using Wi-Fi, it is also quick and easy to set up the recorder via a smart­phone.

5. Cloud services (optional)

High-end reg­is­trars have a per­ma­nent Inter­net con­nec­tion. You can use the recorder as a GPS track­er and view the loca­tion on the map, as well as con­nect to the recorder’s cam­era remote­ly from any­where in the world. A use­ful fea­ture of reg­is­trars with a cloud ser­vice is the abil­i­ty to send noti­fi­ca­tions that some­thing is hap­pen­ing to the car: an attempt­ed theft, a tow truck has arrived, etc. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the need to pur­chase addi­tion­al devices for con­stant Inter­net access, such as a 4G modem, fur­ther increas­es the cost of the DVR (with all the nec­es­sary acces­sories, it will cost 30–40 thou­sand rubles).

6. GPS (optional)

The­o­ret­i­cal­ly, a GPS tag can help prove that the acci­dent hap­pened exact­ly where you claim it, in case the record is fuzzy. GPS can also cal­cu­late your speed, which in the­o­ry is use­ful when chal­leng­ing ille­gal speed­ing tick­ets, but we have not heard of real cas­es. GPS will also be use­ful for trav­el­ers who ride in remote places with­out a con­nec­tion and want to remem­ber their routes.

7. Speedcam (optional)

Speed­cam, or GPS infor­mant, pro­vides infor­ma­tion about the loca­tion of police cam­eras, radars, etc. This is not an active radar detec­tor, but an infor­ma­tion sys­tem sim­i­lar to that found in pop­u­lar nav­i­ga­tors for mobile devices. If you rarely get out of the city, speed­cam is more jus­ti­fied than a hybrid device with a radar detec­tor.

8. Radar detector (optional)

The radar detec­tor can detect the oper­a­tion of the police radar (speed detec­tor) and warn the dri­ver in advance of the dan­ger. How use­ful this option is is up to you. In some coun­tries, the use of radar detec­tors is pro­hib­it­ed (in addi­tion to fines, both the device and the car are often con­fis­cat­ed; and some­where, for exam­ple in Swe­den, you can even go to jail for using radar detec­tors). The cost of a reg­is­trar with a decent radar detec­tor starts from 10–12 thou­sand rubles.

AXPER Combo Hybrid

AXPER Com­bo Hybrid uses a radar detec­tor with sig­na­ture tech­nol­o­gy. Pho­to: axper.ru

AXPER Com­bo Hybrid com­bines a DVR and a radar detec­tor in one hous­ing. The device detects radar mod­els and blocks false sig­nal sources, which sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduces the num­ber of false pos­i­tives. The recorder records a clear pic­ture with a res­o­lu­tion of 2560 × 1440 pix­els, and thanks to the GPS / GLONASS mod­ule, you can get accu­rate data even in dif­fi­cult recep­tion con­di­tions. In addi­tion, there is a mod­el vari­ant with an addi­tion­al rear cam­era and Wi-Fi.

Check list

  • Decide if you need a sin­gle-cham­ber or two-cham­ber mod­el.
  • Choose the form fac­tor you like best.
  • The body of the recorder and / or the cam­era, which is mount­ed on the glass, should not inter­fere with the view — pref­er­ence should be giv­en to more com­pact mod­els.
  • If this is your first recorder, it is bet­ter to choose a suc­tion cup as a mount.
  • Decide if you need a radar detec­tor or speed cam­eras.
  • Shoot­ing res­o­lu­tion should be at least HD (1280 × 720), bet­ter — Full HD (1920 × 1080).
  • Opti­mum view­ing angle: 120–140°.
  • The reg­is­trar must have a func­tion to auto­mat­i­cal­ly turn on when the engine starts.
  • The opti­mal size of the mem­o­ry card is 16 GB. The class of the mem­o­ry card is at least 10th.

The best registrars — our recommendations

We did not begin to col­lect the rat­ing of the best car DVRs — 2020–2021. But let’s talk about those mod­els in each price seg­ment, which, in our opin­ion, best meet the cri­te­ria list­ed above.

Budget models

Our choice: Advo­Cam-FD Black II (5 420 rubles)

A new ver­sion of the super pop­u­lar bud­get reg­is­trar. Pho­to: root-nation.com

The first ver­sion of Advo­Cam-FD Black earned peo­ple’s love: the com­bi­na­tion of a low price and excel­lent shoot­ing in a com­pact body is a uni­ver­sal recipe for a great device. The updat­ed ver­sion received a new Sony IMX323 sen­sor with improved night shoot­ing, which cre­ates video with a res­o­lu­tion of 1920 × 1080 pix­els at 30 fps. From the pre­vi­ous ver­sion, Black II inher­it­ed a com­pact body that does not inter­fere with the dri­ver’s view. The view­ing angle of the cam­era itself is quite wide — 170 °, while the fish­eye effect is per­fect­ly cor­rect­ed by the built-in soft­ware.

Alter­na­tive option: Playme TAU (3,990 rubles)

Thanks to the mag­net­ic mount, you can instant­ly remove and install the recorder. Pho­to: www.habr.com

An even cheap­er ver­sion of the recorder with decent Full HD. The mag­a­zine “Behind the wheel” at one time called the device the best bud­get mod­el on the mar­ket. The TAU fea­ture is a mag­net­ic mount, which can be found in much more expen­sive reg­is­trars. The neat dig­i­tal cam­era-style body fea­tures a large 3‑inch dis­play. As for the qual­i­ty of the record­ing, for your mon­ey you get a fair­ly good pic­ture both day and night. The 170-degree view cre­ates a lit­tle dis­tor­tion in the cor­ners, but this is not a par­tic­u­lar prob­lem for him.

Average price category

Our choice: Advo­Cam-FD8 Gold-II GPS + GLONASS (7690 rubles)

Advo­Cam-FD8 Gold-II: high-end fea­tures for an aver­age bud­get. Pho­to: topradar.ru

Quad Full HD res­o­lu­tion (2560 x 1440), speed cam­eras, Wi-Fi, GPS + GLONASS — all this is in the reg­is­trar, which costs less than 10 thou­sand rubles. Thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi, you can watch videos from your smart­phone with­out down­load­ing first. The speed­cam cam­era data­base is updat­ed month­ly, which will help you avoid fines while dri­ving around the city (the data­base is updat­ed not only for Moscow and St. Peters­burg, but also for oth­er Russ­ian cities).

Alter­na­tive option: Xiao­mi 70mai A800 4K Dash Cam (9490 rubles)

The A800 shoots 4K video and can help the dri­ver avoid acci­dents thanks to the ADAS sys­tem. Pho­to: lifehacker.ru

This mod­el, brand­ed by a well-known Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­er, shoots beau­ti­ful 4K video. The uni­ver­sal view­ing angle of 140° cap­tures the traf­fic sit­u­a­tion across the entire width of the car­riage­way with­out dis­tor­tion. There is also a mod­i­fi­ca­tion with a rear view cam­era, which will cost 11,490 rubles. Like a num­ber of oth­er mod­els of the man­u­fac­tur­er, Xiao­mi 70mai A800 is equipped with an ADAS dri­ver assis­tance sys­tem, which, by ana­lyz­ing infor­ma­tion from the cam­era, helps the dri­ver avoid an acci­dent. The sys­tem includes a motion sen­sor, col­li­sion warn­ing and lane con­trol. Addi­tion­al­ly, this DVR has a built-in GPS mod­ule.

High end models

Our choice: Playme P600SG (17,990 rubles)

Three in one: recorder, speed­cam and radar detec­tor. Pho­to: pvsm.ru

The flag­ship com­bo mod­el from Playme, which com­bines a radar detec­tor, a video recorder and a GPS informer, can right­ful­ly be con­sid­ered one of the best com­bo recorders on the mar­ket. First­ly, the mod­el has the high­est res­o­lu­tion among com­bo devices: the pic­ture in Super HD looks good both in day­time and at night. Sec­ond­ly, an advanced radar detec­tor using sig­na­ture tech­nol­o­gy effec­tive­ly sep­a­rates real “threats” from false pos­i­tives. It can also iden­ti­fy dif­fi­cult-to-detect low-pow­er radars. The data­base of cam­eras and radars is con­stant­ly updat­ed, so in the city you can turn off the radar detec­tor and rely on speeds. The mod­el has a built-in mem­o­ry of 128 MB and sup­port for mem­o­ry cards up to 64 GB. This is a real top among com­bo mod­els.

Alter­na­tive option: Trend­Vi­sion aMir­ror 12 Android FUTURE (12,499 rubles)

Trend­Vi­sion aMir­ror 12 runs on Android — you can install var­i­ous appli­ca­tions: from a nav­i­ga­tor to an anti-theft sys­tem. Pho­to: drive2.ru

This recorder com­plete­ly replaces the reg­u­lar rearview mir­ror, and you do not need to con­tact the ser­vice to install it. This mod­el pro­duces a beau­ti­ful pic­ture in Full HD, plus a rear-view cam­era (640 x 480) with a park­ing assis­tant func­tion is includ­ed in the kit. aMir­ror uses Android as an oper­at­ing sys­tem, thanks to which you can install the nec­es­sary pro­grams your­self (for exam­ple, choose a GPS infor­mant that you like). In fact, instead of a rear-view mir­ror, you get a full-fledged tablet that can be used as a mul­ti­me­dia sys­tem — movies, music, speak­er­phone, nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem and anti-theft sys­tem in one bot­tle. The device works as a 4G modem, it has GPS, Wi-Fi and Blue­tooth.
