Don't know if Best Buy sells all of these, but here are some good reviews: https://www.lifewire.com/best-dash-cams-to-buy-4062264

I love my Blackvue DR650GW-2CH. You can set a whole bunch of alerts and get instant live feed from anywhere you are. I have it set to constantly be recording.

I use my gopro set to 5-10 minute loop recording. The gopro has no shock sensor so it just will keep recording and looping over your evidence in the event of a crash or altercation. That's the one place that the gopro falls down. Its a great camera otherwise, and a really expensive dash cam.

In the S, I run the Garmin 50LMT which is a GPS with a built-in dash cam. It does not record audio but it does overlay date, time, GPS coordinates, and speed. IIRC, I paid around $300 for it last year at Best Buy but you can probably get it now for closer to $250.

I use the Mobius with capacitor battery. I always use it for any drive over 10-15 minutes and swap back and forth between my cars. I'd highly recommend it.

You should be able to get it at any hobby store.
