Blackvue - Lousy value for the cost

My adult son thought he did his research and bought a Blackvue 650gw-2ch and thus recommended I do too. We have both lost our Blackvue, as the firmware eventually seems to fight itself, eventually don't recognize memory cards and won't respond to any input via the app or computer. After running these for about 2 years, they are both out of commission, non-functional. I will not waste my money on another Blackvue dash cam. Show details

BlackVue quickly resolved my issue

I posted an issue I had with my BlackVue dash cam and this company worked very quickly to resolve it, you can’t ask for anything more than that!

It’s great to see some companies making the effort to show their customers they are valued and eager to resolve issues, for this reason I highly recommend purchasing products from this company BlackVue.

Thank you very much Chaim and staff for making this customer have faith again it is really appreciated.

Thanks again! Show details ·  3

The product doesn't last long

Good customer service. I sent it to BlackBox in Perth to repair, the team had a prompt response and good communication for the issue, so everything was fixed very professionally also came back with a free tracking post. Show details ·  3

Second time it's faulty!

This is the second time this camera is playing up. First time only GPS light was lighting up so it was fixed free of charge and chip replaced. Now the camera runs for a while then the GPS light stay alight and red recording light turns off. Also camera makes a funny noise. Unplug it and restart camera and same thing happens all over again. Not happy! Show details

Great when it worked

My dash cam was purchased and installed by a reputable dealer just over two years ago. It has been replaced because it kept restarting and the replacement unit was repaired under warranty because the internal power in the front camera was faulty. The dealer has sent it off again today because the front camera won't power up. I'm very disappointed- I was assured this was a very good brand and I seem to have had nothing but trouble with it. I drive approximately 1000 kms a week and need a good, reliable unit for peace of mind on the road. Show details

Only Dash cam to Have

Needed to be hard wired but well worth the effort. So impressed will keep it for whatever car i drive even though costly to have hardwired. Havent needed to update software after 2 years of wear. Costly to buy but so much better than cheaper dash cams. Before buying a dashcam its worthwhile doing the research. This product is worth the money.....

My black view has suddenly started say ‘voice recording off’ followed by ‘restarting voice recording’ many times in a row! Why? It’s run the battery down twice overnight.
