What's the best dash cam for the money?

Episode 1223 (1:05:34)

Ivan from Fontana, CA
Thinkware x500 dash cam

Ivan wants to get a dash cam for his car. Leo suggests looking at Garmin and Cobra dash cams. PC World just released their roundup that looks at cameras ranging from $100-400. In fact, most of the GPS companies are now looking at making dash cams.

Leo says Ivan will want one that can set the time via GPS, and has night vision. According to PC World, the best is the Thinkware Dashcam X500 for $280. It records both front and rear (rear camera sold separately) and it warns of speed traps. WireCutter also has reviews of them.
