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.

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.
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 = 10 second pre-recording, BlackVue = 5 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.
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:
The front camera records at 4K resolution + 8MP lens for ultra sharp and clear footage.
For a more cost-effective option take a look at the FineVU GX300-2CH
The FineVU GX300-2CH front camera records in 1440P QHD resolution + 5.1MP lens and contains the Sony STARVIS sensor.
If the receiver is not the most tech savvy type 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
The Abee Dash Cams are true set and forget units. Simple, no frills units that do what they should – record videos while driving.
For a simple front and rear recording Dash Cam, the FineVU GX5000-2CH is the way to go if the receiver would want to record while driving and parked also.
If the receiver wants a front and rear Dash Cam but would only want to record while driving, then the Abee M528GH-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:
Inbuilt Wi-Fi for connection to a smartphone to stream footage and configure the Dash Cam settings. Both BlackVue and FineVU have intuitive smartphone Apps and PC viewers to 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 Cam look at the Abee M638G.
It is small, cost effective and has a Sony Starvis for great video quality.
The reliability, features and inclusions offered by FineVU, rivals that of Dash Cams more than double its price.
