Hi,

I'm looking to buy a new dash cam, and with my relatively cheap, off-brand camera crapping out after a year of light use, I decided to increase my budget this time around.

At my current price range, I narrowed my choices between DOD's LS460W and Transcend's DrivePro series, and I'm finding it difficult to pick a model.

The things I'm looking for in a dash cam are:
* Good video quality at all times of the day and night.
* Very good audio recording quality.
* Support for 32GB memory (or higher).
* Indefinite, non-stop recording while the camera is connected (reliable power feed).
* High heat resistance.

Things I don't care about:
* Wifi.
* Noticeability (burglary potential).

The price equivalents I can get these cameras for are:
DrivePro 100 - $150
DrivePro 200 - $175
DrivePro 220 - $197
LS460W - $229
DrivePro 520 - $237

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to forum !

I have a good experience with DP-200.

I recommend to buy dashcam model which have good local warranty support.

Welcome to DCT. Avoid battery-reliant cameras, which are almost guaranteed to fail within 18 months or less. Choose a capacitor-based camera for long term reliability.

From your list, the DrivePro 200 is possibly the best bet, though better DashCams are available.
