Road Angel Halo Pro review

A 2K dash cam with GPS, excellent video quality and a rear-facing camera included, but it lacks bonus features and the app could be better

Digital Camera World Verdict

The Halo Pro by Road Angel is a no-nonsense dash cam that shuns extra features like driver assistance and voice control in favour of great video quality from its 2K (front) and Full HD (rear) cameras. It also packs GPS, Wi-Fi and high-quality hardware that feels like it is built to last. The smartphone app is a bit clunky but isn’t required to use the dash cam itself, and all that’s really missing is a button to save footage manually. Including a microSD card in the box would also have been welcome, as providing your own increases the overall cost.

Road Angel is best known for its speed camera detectors, but has more recently branched out into the ever-increasing dash cam market. It currently offers six different models under the Halo brand, ranging from the Halo Go to the Halo Ultra, and also including a couple of models that incorporate a rear-view mirror.

The Halo Pro front-and-rear dash cam reviewed here sits towards the top of the range, sitting below the 4K-capable Halo Ultra.
