Buy a Dashcam

Get started with an Open Dashcam device.
One of the primary ways to contribute to the Hivemapper Network is to collect quality imagery as you drive. These contributions help increase coverage and freshness for the map tiles in the decentralized mapping network.
  • Currently supported devices include the Hivemapper Dashcam and the Hivemapper Dashcam S.
  • Only vehicles with at least four wheels are stable enough to produce consistently high-quality images.

Dashcams for Purchase

Below are the Open Dashcams currently available for purchase.

Dashcams From Hivemapper Inc.

  • The Hivemapper Dashcam (“HDC”) is available for purchase directly from Hivemapper here.
  • The Hivemapper Dashcam S (“HDC-S”) is available for purchase here. This model provides additional 4K video functionality for personal use that may be useful for some contributors. (The HDC-S does not record audio and has no internal facing camera.)
  • Hivemapper Inc. has partnerships with resellers around the world to deliver a quick and convenient buying experience. To ensure that you are buying from a legitimate reseller, please check this list of authorized resellers.
The HDC and HDC-S equally contribute street-level imagery to the network and equally earn rewards. They will both continue to be optimized with app updates and over-the-air firmware updates for years to come.
To store collected imagery from either model for personal use, contributors can connect a flash drive. The HDC has a USB-C port on the dashcam. The HDC-S has an extra USB-A port on its power adapter.
