Here's our latest ~$100 dash camera recommendations for 2017. This is an update to the video we released in May.
UPDATE: May 25, 2017
We no longer recommend the Lexar 633X SD Card. There's a global memory card shortage which has raised prices. A combination of increased failures and unchanged card pricing with the Lexar 633X leads us to believe that the NAND quality may have been reduced. We'll be back soon with an alternative.

#3 - Yi Dash Cam - $60 USD
The cheapest WiFi, rotating camera we recommend. Good reliability but it has a lithium ion battery so don’t use it in hot environments. Our review: http://www.paktune.pk/watch/SRycas4M4DY
Amazon USA : http://amzn.to/2sRHgs3
Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/2sRRCZ6
#4 Transcend 200 - $100 - For drivers in hot and humid environments who are on a budget and want a camera which has been proven to be reliable. If you don't need that, look at the Yi or the A119 instead for better performance. Our Review: http://www.paktune.pk/watch/h9BYFZN7wX4
Tape Version Recommended

Staples CAN - http://bit.ly/2t4OfhO
#5 Goluk T3 - $100
Slim, stylish performance. Wifi, capacitor design, automatic parking mode. Should be available in Canada and UK in the future. You can also order directly from Goluk.
As a nerdy comment they are using Shopify as their eCommerce platform which is very secure and not typically used by Chinese companies. Good on them.
