Digital Camera World Verdict

The Vantrue OnDash S2 3CH delivers high-quality video from three 160° cameras – front-facing (2K), rear (1080p) and internal (1080p). Built-in WiFi enables you to connect via the smartphone app, so that your videos are automatically downloaded to your smartphone and tablet, and handy features such as parking mode mean that even when the car is stationary, the dash cam is ready to record as soon as the sensor detects movement.

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

The Vantrue OnDash S2 3CH is an advanced dash cam with lots of added features that will help you keep safe on the road. Each of the three lenses has an angle of view of 160°, with the front-facing camera able to record 2560 x 1440p at 30fps while the rear and internal cameras can record in 1080 x 1080p. 

It can be used in any car, although the Vantrue OnDash S2 3CH does very much feel like it's more suited to a left-hand drive car due to the position of the ports – and the wires connecting it to the rear camera and power outlet are incredibly long.
