2020 Christmas Dash Cam Gift Guide

Christmas is fast approaching so get in early and buy that special someone a much needed Dash Cam. Most likely the receiver has probably been contemplating buying one so why not beat them to it.

Dash Cams make a perfect functional, practical and exciting gift that the receiver will actually use, DAILY. The Dash Cam will most likely be installed and driven around before Christmas lunch is put on the table!

With an increase in road rage, poor driving practices and lack of ownership on our roads, a Dash Cam makes a thoughtful gift that will provide the receiver a more reassuring drive in 2021.

So how do you know which Dash Cam your receiver might like? We understand this can be difficult to find out, especially if you are going to surprise them, so we have put this guide together to assist you making a choice.

If you are unsure about which model to buy, take the pressure of and grab a  Dash Cams Australia GIFT VOUCHER and let them choose!


If you want to play it safe and buy a Dash Cam that would appeal to most customers:

If you are really unsure about which Dash Cam the receiver would buy for themselves, and you want to go a safe option, look at the following:

For a front recording Dash Cam, take a look at the Abee V57Gs

The compact Abee V57Gs Dash Cam boasts a SONY STARVIS sensor, a supercapacitor for heat reliability, in-built GPS to imprint speed on the footage and generous included accessories.

For a front and rear recording Dash Cam, take a look at the popular FineVu LX2000-2CH

The FineVu LX2000-2CH is a top seller this year and boasts the longest 30 month Dash Cam warranty which is a testament to its quality. The FineVu is hands down the easiest Dash Cam to set up and use having an LCD touchscreen.

The FineVu also has an excellent parking mode feature to record in car parks and offers the best bang for your buck with great features and premium reliability.

Both models are excellent all round performers and have all the essential features you need in a Dash Cam like plug and play operation, easy to install, high quality sensors, GPS and excellent daily reliability.

Either Dash Cam model is a safe and trusted option if you don’t know what the receiver would buy.

If the receiver appreciates the best quality products and is all about quality:

For a premium screenless Dash Cam, you can’t go past the BlackVue X Dash Cam range.

The BlackVue X models are at the forefront of Dash Cam technology and offer excellence in design, reliability and functionality.

BlackVue offer both front recording and front and rear recording X models.

The X models come in both a 900X and a 750X range. The 900X is the 4K version and the 750X model is the 1080P FULL HD version.

The 750X has Sony Starvis sensors so has the edge at nighttime.

You can’t go wrong buying either a BlackVue DR750X or DR900X model as a gift. They are a prestigious Dash Cam.

For a premium LCD screen Dash Cam, the FineVU LX2000-2CH is the way to go.

It is backed by the longest 30 month Dash Cam warranty which is a testament to the build quality and reliability of FineVU products.


If the receiver would want to record motion or impacts while their car is parked:

Front and rear cameras are the most effective for parking mode recording. The rear camera can pick up the actions of cars pulling into the car spot behind your vehicle or people pushing around trollies behind your car.

The most popular and reliable parking mode Dash Cams come from our FineVU, BlackVue and Lukas Dash Cam range.

Reason is, they have the all important pre-buffered recording in Parking Mode, which means the Dash Cam records footage both before and after either Dash Cam is triggered by either motion or impact (FineVU = 5 second pre-recording, BlackVue = 5 second pre-recording. Lukas = 10 second pre-recording). The pre-buffered recording can help to see the important lead up to the incident while parked.

They also have very customisable parking mode settings to allow you to setup parking mode to best suit your needs and environment.

When hardwired with their respective hardwire kits, all these Dash Cam models will record any motion or impact that occurs while parked. The hardwire kits come included with the Dash Cams.

We love that the FineVU LX2000-2CH has an on-screen parking mode summary when you re-start your engine. The FineVu lets you know how many motion and impact files were recorded while parked. The BlackVue also alerts you on start-up if any impacts were detected in parking mode. Clever!


If the receiver absolutely loves their car and is all about looks and style:

Look at the BlackVue X model Dash Cam range

The BlackVue range is one of the most stylish Dash Cam range around. They look great in cars and blend in nicely with the exterior and interior of all cars.


If the receiver would appreciate the best video quality you can currently get in a Dash Cam:

Look at the BlackVue DR900X-1CH or BlackVue DR900X-2CH Dash Cams

The front camera records at 4K resolution + 8MP lens for ultra sharp and clear footage.

For more cost-effective options take a look at the Lukas QVIA QR790-1CH or Lukas QVIA QR790-2CH

The QVIA QR790 front camera records in 1440P QHD resolution + 5.5MP lens and contains the Sony STARVIS sensor.


If the receiver is not the most tech savvy would appreciate a simple set and forget Dash Cam that just does its job at recording (without too much mucking around):

For a front recording Dash Cam, take a look at the Abee Dash Cam range and the DOD Dash Cam range

The Abee Dash Cams are smaller than the DOD units if size is a consideration.

For a front and rear recording Dash Cam, the FineVU LX2000-2CH is the way to go.

All these Dash Cam models have a screen on the unit which makes them more user friendly and fuss free to operate.

Dash Cams without screens are generally setup via an App and Wi-Fi which can confuse the non-tech savvy user or might take some time getting used to.

The LCD screens make for easy setup, easy menu access and easy video playback.



If the receiver is a bit of a tech-head and loves their tech gadgets:

Look at the BlackVue Dash Cam range and Lukas Dash Cam range

Inbuilt Wi-Fi for connection to a smartphone to stream footage and configure the Dash Cam settings. Both BlackVue and Lukas have intuitive smartphone Apps and PC viewers to configure settings and watch Dash Cam footage.


If you don’t want to spend too much but don’t want to compromise on quality and features:

For front recording Dash Cams look at the Abee V57GS and the DOD 512G Dash Cams

Both units are small, cost effective and have Sony sensors for great video quality.

For a cost effective front and rear recording Dash Cam, the FineVU LX2000-2CH is the way to go.

The reliability, features and inclusions offered by FineVU, rivals that of Dash Cams more than double its price.


If you want the receiver to use the Dash Cam on Christmas Day while driving to and from a celebration, ensure you purchase a compatible Micro SD card with the Dash Cam (unless they already come with one). That way the receiver will have everything they need to start using their Dash Cam gift straight away.
