Excellent Dashcam(s)

published

Quite easy to install. (Hiding wires behind trim can be fiddly)
Super easy to set-up & operate.
Wi-fi is easy to use.
Works perfectly all day while parked in the HOT QLD sun on a 36 Degree day.
Day vision is excellent, bright sun/ overcast does a brilliant job, night vision is outstanding.
PMP is a worthwhile investment.
Well worth the money!!!

Finally found the best dash cam

published

The camera was easy to setup.

The quality of the camera is unreal. Especially in the dark, no grain in the photos. Unbelievable.

The built in app to download via wifi is a super handy feature.

A great peace of mind product every car should have

published

I've now had my Blackvue DR750S-2CH installed for about 5 months. I installed it myself including the battery saving feature. The installation was really easy with the tools and parts provided. Because it records while parked, it gives me some extra peace of mind knowing if there is an incident I can download the recording. I've had a few close shaves while driving so it is great th know that a recording will be there should I need it for insurance purposes. I can highly recommend this product and would not bother looking for another brand.

Constantly cannot communicate with it with my iPhone X, my Ipad Pro is better, but still has lots of issues

published

Don't know have never been able to get into the settings, the wireless on this thing is useless, it was fitted to my car by the dealer who went through a subcontractor AutoOne, who are next to useless as well, I have to drive over 40 kays each time to get stuff sorted and then 5 minutes after I have left it starts doing the same stuff, not connecting, can't get live view or into settings

Worth every dollar!!

published

My rear dashcam footage was used to assist police with a very serious crime this week. The detectives leading the case we're all impressed with how brilliant the dash cam produced high quality picture and sound. My dashcam is worth very dollar and I would encourage everyone to purchase front and rear dashcam.

Blackvue DR750S-2CH

Being new to Dashcams I was a bit sceptical to part with the $$$ for my DR750S when there are plenty of cheaper units on the market. In saying that, I am in love with my Blackvue and I wouldve been kicking myself if I did go for something cheaper!!

Useless

published

Recently I purchased this product and had installed in my Wildtrak only to find out the App doesn’t work with IOS13 and cannot connect with cameras. I also paid for Cloud subscription which also cannot be used as a consequence. The seller and installer where good but had no answers and referred me to Blackvue support team who also had no answers and no idea if or when it would resolved. Not surprisingly the App has only 2 stars. At this stage it’s all been a waste of money and time.

Purchased in September 2019 for $750.00.

Why did I wait so long

Had it installed at Auto one Morley. Was very paranoid about roof liner... the team did a seamless job . The unit works sensationally and I couldn’t be happier... just wish I had done it sooner. Great product... outstanding install... worth every cent to get it right.

I bought this dash Cam from Strathfield Car Radios Concord they installed it on the same day into my Triton Ute with a Canopy Not a easy install to the rear, But the job was seamless and very happy with the Service and the whole job

Installed at Strathfield Car Radio Great job done, Number Plate recondition is a bit ordinary other than that really great product Regret not waiting for High Definition to be released

The perfect companion for my new car

published

My camera was professionally installed by Autobarn (Warnerrs Bay N'cle) and after downloading the App, it was then just a matter of connecting my phone by direct Wi-Fi to the Camera and opening the App to access the cameras. The image recorded was very clear whether it was recorded during the day or night. Overall I am very happy with the choice I made buying this Blackvue Camera, I would not hesitate to recommend this camera to anyone looking to get a great dash cam!

I have a black vue camera installed works fine bit I have found that at the same spot driving home it isn't recording it is missing from when I pull up at a set of lights to when I pull into my drive way about 10 mins of driving. I have recordings for the driving prior to this and then me getting out of my car once park the car. I am concerned if something happens at the intersection there will be no prof there is red light traffic and speed camera at this intersection does this interfere with recording. Thanks

Hi Larissa,

Thanks for taking the time to leave this query.
When you approach this set of traffic lights is there any voice prompts that occur with the unit?

To our knowledge the red light traffic and speed cameras would have no effect on the cameras ability to record video files.
With the files that are still there prior to this occurring can you advise what file types they are? ie. Event recordings, normal recording or parking files.

Please advise on the above so that we can assist in this matter further.
Alternatively if you would prefer to discus this matter please call on the details below.

Kind Regards,
Chaim

Rustyasked

I have another question in relation to the blackvue 7 50s 2 channel can you connect it to a vehicle capacity energy storage unit and have it run from that directly instead of the car battery Forest little as 100 Australian dollars you can have one installed from battery while the capacitor charges while you drive when you turn the car off the capacitor will automatically detect the device connected to it yes requiring power and will supply direct power to the cameras is this possible also why did you decide to have the devices Wi-Fi and not bluetooth most phones I've tried with the device will not access the internet if connected to blackvue device even if you have mobile data which I do I don't know whether this is a limitation of newer phone's or not but if the camera devices had been Bluetooth they would automatically connect with in range as long as your boot if is turned on the device and you would still have access to mobile data to access the internet I also believe that the Bluetooth range would be fast superior to the devices current Wi-Fi range which in my judgement is only 2, 3 at a stretch 4 feet away from the car

BlackVue Australia T.BlackVue

Hi Rusty,

As long as the power supply meets the power specifications of the camera, (DC 12V/24V, MAX 1A/12V) we don't see an issue. However, please try this at your own discretion as we have not tested extensively with power supplies outside of the BlackVue external battery units.

The reason why Wi-Fi is chosen as the selected medium is due to data transfer rates. Bluetooth was considered by the manufacturer but it was found that transferring videos from the camera to a mobile device through bluetooth would take upwards of 10 minutes in some scenarios. Bluetooth 3.0 and 4.0 offer speeds of up to 25MBps, while Wi-Fi direct can offer up to 250MBps. Bluetooth may effectively have larger range in comparison to the current Wi-Fi direct range, but it would be at the trade-off of significantly lower transfer speeds.
