the win­ner Tran­scend

Fan­tas­tic value – and a sec­ond cam­era, too!

Mac Format - - AP­PLE CHOICE -

Good­ness, this was a tough choice, but in the end we had to look to­wards two fac­tors that make the Tran­scend DrivePro 520 such a great buy. Firstly, its price; it’s the sec­ond-cheap­est dash­cam here. The other rea­son is it’s great value be­cause it’s got a sec­ond, rear-fac­ing cam­era with LEDs for night work, in ad­di­tion to a 32GB Mi­croSD card, Wi-Fi and a dis­play (even though it’s the small­est one here).

If your in­ten­tion is to set and for­get, and you want the whizzi­est iOS app, look at the Asus cam­era. If you want a large screen and crys­tal-clear menus, go for the Garmin. If you want the high­est res­o­lu­tion, go for the RAC model. In­deed, each and ev­ery cam­era here has some­thing to of­fer, and all are bril­liant value for money. But there’s re­ally no rea­son you shouldn’t plump for Tran­scend, un­less you re­ally have no in­ter­est in hav­ing that sec­ondary cam­era. There are far cheaper dash­cams avail­able, but it’s around this price point that the fea­ture set and qual­ity re­ally stand out. The ca­pa­bil­i­ties of all the cam­eras fea­tured here are re­ally quite re­mark­able.
