What is a rear-facing dash cam?

If you’ve only got a dash cam that points forward, then you won’t be recording what goes on behind your vehicle, which could be important if you’re trying to prove to insurers that you’re not at fault.

Some dash cams have an additional rear-facing camera that keeps an eye on the road through the rear windscreen, but it may be worth looking at an additional dash cam that faces out of the back window if you want to capture the most detail.

There are also dash cam kits that feature both front and rear cameras that work together (known as a two-channel system). These are typically the best dash cams and allow you to have all angles covered should anything happen.
