Poor reliability and customer service
Relatively easy to set up, their PC software is hot garbage though.
I have two of the DR590-1CH and one developed the well-documented "Russian boot loop" error after 18 months and a 33 degree day.
Blackvue stated that I will have to pay for a repair.
Not a product suited to Australian climate and certainly not a product the company stands behind. Spend your money elsewhere.
Purchased in April 2018 for $450.00.

Cannot fault it
Had this unit a month now after upgrading from cheaper ebay Chinese units.Unlike those all the settings/menus are done through a p.c and you have to download the blackvue viewer programme from their website first.Initially I thought that to be a PITA,once you get use to it though its no big deal.You need a blackvue,mlc,pittasoft branded sd card and I recommend a 64gb size so you get a minimum of 12hrs FHD 60fps recording.
Recording quality is good,the unit talks to you on set-up,start-up and shut down:-),It doesn't perform miracles as far as p...
I purchased this unit for a second car, after having had a DR450 for a couple of months. After an initial issue with the performance of the DR590, Blackvue were happy to replace the unit. The DR590 has a better lens than the DR450 and the picture is certainly clearer than the DR450, however so far, this clearer picture can only be obtained by watching the vision via media player rather than on the Blackvue program. I don't know if this is a problem for others or not. While this is not particularly ideal, it's not the end of the world.
Questions & Answers
How hard is it to turn off the Audio recording?
When the Audio is switched off does it stay off or do you need to do it at each time you start the car?
