Our daytime video clips had good color accuracy and a wide dynamic range, and we found that license plates and street signs were easier to read than in video from the other models.

The rear-facing camera footage was also clear and sharp, although at night it could be contrasty and dark (which is typical for this group).

In response to reader comments, we’ve added a paragraph in the Competition section about why we didn’t test our previous top pick, Zero Edge Technology’s Z-Edge Z3, or the upgraded Z3P for our latest update.

The Papago Go Safe 535 features 2304×1296 resolution at 30 frames per second, and in all the lighting conditions we tested, this model produced crisp images that made seeing details and license plates easy.

After spending more than 40 hours researching 150 dash cams, and driving more than 100 miles to test 12 of the most promising models, we recommend the Papago Go Safe 535 as the best dash cam for most drivers.

Its video quality ranked among the best of the models we tested, plus it’s compact and easy to use.

It’s also more expensive than our top pick typically, though we’ve seen this Magellan model’s price drop to as low as about —you should get the Mi Vue 420 if it’s less expensive than our top pick, as long as you don’t mind its narrower field of view.

While testing dash cams for this guide, she captured all sorts of drama on the road, and realized that her neighborhood is chock-full of red-light cameras that don’t seem to be much of a deterrence.
