With the gradual improvement of people's awareness of safe driving, the dashcam has become a necessary equipment for more and more drivers. However, when purchasing a dashcam, many people are faced with a critical decision: whether to choose a dashcam with a screen or without. This choice will have a significant impact on the user experience and functionality. In this blog, we'll delve into this issue and provide insights to help you make an informed decision.


Dashcams with screens typically feature a built-in display that allows users to instantly view recorded videos and photos. There are some advantages to a dashcam with a screen:

1. Real-Time Viewing

Watch the recorded footage in real time and get key information instantly. VIOFO dashcams with screens allow for real-time viewing, aiding in adjusting viewing angles accurately and facilitating hassle-free installation.


2. Monitor Machine Status

It's convenient to monitor the operational status, enabling timely adjustments if any anomalies are detected.


3. Easy to Operate

The dashcam with a screen usually comes with buttons, which makes the operation more intuitive and simple. All of VIOFO's dashcams come with buttons that you can select according to your preferences and usage habits.


4. Optimized Design

VIOFO dashcams with screens are all triangular wedge-shaped to better match the driving view and windshield tilt angle.

On the other hand, screenless dashcams lack a built-in display, requiring users to view recorded videos and photos through a cell phone or computer. Nonetheless, screenless dashcams offer their own set of advantages:

1. Compact And Concealed Design 

A Screenless dashcam is smaller in size, simpler to install, and takes up less space in the car. For instance, the new VIOFO model VS1 features the smallest form factor, discreetly positioned behind the rearview mirror without obstructing the driver's view 


2. Heat Reduction

Dashcams usually work in a high-temperature environment, and excessive heat will affect stability and service life. Screenless models generate less heat compared to those with screens. All of VIOFO's dashboards use supercapacitors, which are safe and reliable and can effectively withstand high temperatures for a longer service life.


3. Energy Saving

Screenless dashcams are more energy efficient, especially for requiring continuous monitoring of the vehicle. VIOFO dashcams offer 3 parking modes, including motion detection, which automatically halts recording when no movement is detected, conserving energy effectively.


4. Lower Cost

Screenless models are generally more affordable than dashcams with screens. VIOFO both with and without screen models are available at different price ranges to meet your various needs.


5. Voice Control

VIOFO's latest screenless dashcam, the VS1, features a voice control function, ensuring ease of use even when accessing the device is inconvenient.

Ultimately, choosing the dashcams with and without screen depends on personal habits, practical needs, and budget considerations. If you prioritize the convenience of instant viewing and independent operation, a dashcam with a screen may be preferable. However, if you value affordability and compactness, and would prefer to view recordings through your phone or computer, then a screenless dashcam may be the right choice for you. 


In conclusion, whether opting for a screen-equipped or screenless dashcam, VIOFO provides innovative solutions tailored to enhance safety, convenience, and affordability for drivers. We hope this guide helps you select the perfect dashcam to meet your needs and preferences!
