What is Dashcam?

A dash cam is abbreviation of the terms “dashboard camera”. As the name suggests, it’s a camera that is made for being mounted on a vehicle’s dashboard; and, when it is a motorcycle, then it’s a motorcycle dash cam. The key role of a dash cam is to act as a “witness with silence” when the vehicle experiences an accident. But in the wider aspect, a dash cam is designed to record each incident (in detail) accurately that takes place when a vehicle runs or is parked.

Benefits of Using a Dashcam on Motorcycle

When used to monitor other drivers, dash cams can reduce traffic violations, hit-and-run accidents, and other forms of negligence. A dashcam will also help protect you in court from claims that you were uninsured or faking an incident. This video evidence is invaluable in court cases and can reduce the likelihood of fraud. So, “what are the benefits of a dashcam?” – you know it now.

How Does a Motorcycle Dashcam Work?

Have you ever been wondered how it works? A dashboard camera, being mounted onto a suitable place on your motorbike, records your routes all around (360 degrees) when you’re driving. Being powered by a different battery through the cable, it starts video recording automatically immediately when your bike’s ignition key is turned on. It continues to record on a loop (short segment basis – one after one) onto a micro secure digital (SD) card.

Motorcycle Dash Cam Buying Guide

If you’re interested in buying a dashcam for your motorcycle, here’s what you need to know to purchase the best one. A dedicated dash camera is totally automated. The unit turns on automatically, never runs out of battery, and is fully weatherproof. Its dual front and rear camera systems mean it always records while you ride. In addition, it is easy to use and has a user-friendly interface.

Unlike cars, motorcycle dash cams are placed outside, where they’ll be subjected to weather and extreme temperatures. You’ll need to choose a model that is designed for outdoor use and won’t crack or get foggy when exposed to sunlight. It should also be dustproof to prevent scratches. Choosing a motorcycle dashcam isn’t an easy decision, but you can’t go wrong with one of these cameras.

Choosing a dashcam for your motorcycle can be tricky. The first step is deciding what features you need from your dash camera. If you need to record a video, you need to select one that includes an integrated GPS. Many models will require an external GPS module. Some motorcycle dash cams come with GPS, but they need to be installed using a special kit. Most of these units also have WiFi connections and are remote-controlled, which is convenient for monitoring.

Motorcycle Camera Setup Costing

The price of your motorcycle camera should be based on the type and size of the camera you choose. You can buy bullet-style cameras that are easy to fit, or you can get an aftermarket model that has a weatherproof housing and onboard ECU. If you’re planning on mounting your camera on your motorcycle helmet, you’ll need to decide how many cameras you want. It’s important to choose a camera that will handle acceleration. Anyway, overall camera setup may cost you an amount within $100 to $350 based on camera quality and necessary tools.

How to Install a Dash Cam on Motorcycle

The first step in installing a dash cam on a motorcycle is to make sure it is powered by a battery. A dash camera is a great way to document your ride. These cameras automatically begin recording when you turn on the bike, but they are not powered by a motorcycle’s battery. As such, the camera will not work if the battery is dead, or if the battery has been removed. Additionally, some dash cams do not have overwrite features, so you will need to make sure that you have enough memory.

After choosing a camera, you need to figure out how to install it. Most motorcycle dash cams require an external GPS module, so you should purchase it separately. The THINKWARE M1 security camera is a good example of a motorcycle dash cam because it has an integrated GPS antenna and WiFi connection. You can use the app to view footage from the dashcam and download it to your smartphone or tablet. While it does not come with a screen, it is very useful for capturing moments while you’re on the road.

Once you have purchased the camera, you will need a USB power cable. The battery is rechargeable and can provide up to 90 minutes of recording. The video recorder will need a charging dock, which will keep it from getting wet. Once you have the charger dock, connect the battery to the negative electrode of the ignition switch. If you aren’t riding your motorcycle regularly, you will want to check the Micro SD card for any errors.

However, let’s know the key steps to install a dashcam on your motorcycle:

  • Locate the most suitable position that will allow the best recording view. It can be mounted in several positions as the camera casing has machine thread holes;
  • Ensure secure-mounting so that it does not interfere with the motorcycle’s movement or operation; Critically consider the front forks’ motion range and wheel travel vertical. Front fork motion or travel is more substantial.
  • Learn the DVR setting, as it will allow you to switch the point of view of the camera for the vertical adjustments;
  • The cable of the camera should be routed back to the DVR in a safe manor. Carefully place the cables where they are not exposed to high temperature coming from the engine or subject to pinch point.

Motorcycle Dash Cam Battery Life

As a dashcam starts recording when the ignition key is turned on and continues automatically, it naturally drains the battery. There are several ways to extend the battery life of your Motorcycle Dash Cam. The first is to test it with a USB cable instead of inserting an SD card. This way, you won’t drain your battery. Using a USB cable will prevent the camera from draining the battery on your motorcycle. This method will also allow you to download videos from your dashcam onto your computer and watch them on another device.

Can I Use a Car Dashcam for Motorcycles?

Can I Use a Car Dashcam on my Motorcycle? It’s possible to use a motorcycle dashcam, but it’s crucial to know what you’re getting. Most dash cams have limited recording time, so a high-resolution camera will give you the best picture quality. However, they don’t record as much footage as a car dashcam.

Is a Dash Cam better than a GoPro for Motorcycle?

There are many differences between a dedicated dash cam and GoPro. A motorcycle dashcam is mounted directly on the motorcycle. Most models come with a ball and base or screw-on mounting style. Although a GoPro is an excellent choice for capturing extreme activities and sports, but it does not start automatically and record continuously, serving as a witness for any incident when riding, like a dedicated dashcam.

Concluding Remarks

You know why you need a dashcam when riding your bike. You have a list of the best motorcycle dashcam. Why late then to get one of those and make sure to negate any Traffic Collision Report that is against you?
