Are Windshield Reflectors bad for my Dash Cam?Updated a year ago

Windshield reflectors might be useful, but not if you have a dash cam or any device installed in your windshield. We do not recommend having a Dash Cam or similar device on your windshield when using a windshield Reflector. Unfortunately, since windshield reflectors sit on the inside of the vehicle, they will reflect heat back to the windshield, cooking it, and the dash cam as well, which will have a negative effect on the camera's longevity.

 If you’re planning to get a dash cam for your vehicle, please make sure to get a brand and model that’s built with a supercapacitor instead of lithium-ion batteries, as supercapacitors are better for temperature resistance.

Thanks for stopping by!
