Test 3 Ease of use

Asus’s Reco Smart is un­usual in that it doesn’t have a screen. In­stead, it just sits there record­ing and you can view the footage, if you want to, in its iOS app. This makes quite a bit of sense, since most of the time you don’t need to see what’s hap­pen­ing un­less it’s to down­load a par­tic­u­lar seg­ment of footage. You can also use the app as a con­troller to do things like burst shots or time-lapses, or change the video set­tings. It’s the ideal cam­era if you just want to set and forget. Like the Nextbase cam­era, the RAC’s de­vice has con­trols ei­ther side of its screen, and these two cam­eras are prob­a­bly the eas­i­est to use in-car. Mind you, the Snooper cam’s touch­screen (the only one here) is fairly straight­for­ward. Garmin’s in­ter­face is also a piece of cake to op­er­ate, with clear and sim­ple menus, helped by it hav­ing the largest screen among the group.
