While most American drivers are just getting familiar with dashcams, the next generation of those devices is already arriving: smart dashcams. As with many categories of tech, the “smart” label is a bit generous but the features it signifies are important to consider before you buy. Your main decision will be whether those features are worth the monthly service fees they often require.
Before you can appreciate a smart dashcam you need to understand what a basic one does. A dashcam constantly records the view out your windshield as you drive, sometimes including a second camera that also records the interior of your car simultaneously.
