Great camera but dont waste your money on the genuine sd card

published

The camera is fantastic with great resolution and features. It is well worth spending a few bucks on the polarising filter to cut glare both at night and in the day. The only thing I suggest is that you do not waste you money buying the genuine Blackvue sd card. It is more expensive than the same standard on the general market and after the first time I formatted mine the camera refused to recognise it. Just buy a top grade generic brand card and enjoy your great camera

Very high quality camera solution

published

This isnt just a camera, it is peace of mind! I can now log in and check my car from anywhere, anytime! Very easy to install and setup. The quality of the camera footage is fantastic as well! No issues with anything - instructions are clear and simple.

Highly recommend

Great camera.

published

Purchased the blackvue 650. It replaced a 450 as the 659 had wifi. Have used for about 3 weeks and had no problems at all. Would thoroughly recommend this dashcam. I am looking at purchasing the 112 battery pack as well so I can run the camera in park mode as well. Again great product and great service from Sportsgps from where I brought it from. Thanks for a great product.

Buy from Auto BlackBox online for a great camera brand

published

Have owned and used my Blackvue DR650GW for a couple of years now, never missed a beat. Auto BlackBox have been extremely helpful from the beginning to ownership and now when I wanted a larger SD card and an additional bracket, they have been first class in customer service. Can't believe my order from ordering late one arvo arrives the next morning at my work!! Great communication throughout with clear emails confirming everything was dispatched and had arrived and the purchase was complete. Highly recommended if you want no fuss prompt service to your doorstep, and great products too to buy and get support on. I can't wait to get the next camera just to use them again :) Thank you again James for making the above happen.

Fantastic unit

published

A nice small unit which replaced an existing dashcam in my car. Its so easy to use and the size means that it sits nicely behind the mirror and doesn't obscure the view. Easy to connect to it via wifi to view live and recorded footage (and download if required) and i love the voice announcements it makes. Excellent quality video also. Highly recommended.

BlackVue dashcams are AWESOME

published

A friend of mine has one of these dash cams. It is AMAZING. Wifi works so well. The picture quality is the best I have seen. I don't have one yet but I will have one when mine doesn't work any more. I don't think it will be too long.

This is Perfeet, can't live without my BlackVue

published

It's easy to use and even an app to connect to it inbuilt WiFi. I love it, It's got record while car is parked which is the best as being a deliver driver I park and stop all the time, I'm on the road most days so it's caught a lot of crazy drivers even a hit and run on my van..

Excellent low profile dash cam.

published

Recently installed the DR650s 2 ch system with power pro magic. Very discrete profile with HD front camera 1080 and 720 rear camera. Optional power pro installed to prevent draining battery when in park mode. Easy application installed to change settings and review any footage. Plenty of easy to follow instructions on their web site and utube.

Lifetime of protected motoring

published

I've had the DR650S installed in my car for 3 weeks now.. I've since had 3 weeks of reliable, protected motoring. Actually turns out to be 3 weeks longer than I've had before and I've had a dashcam installed in my car for over 18 months. The Power Magic Pro Kit works wonderfully well with parking mode and is a cinch to install (if you're somewhat technically minded). Set up is easy on the phone with the wifi connection option. I purchased the optional tamper proof case which fits well; except wifi can't be easily turned on and off with it installed. Not a big issue however. I would 100% recommend one of their products to anyone.. I just wish I could've seen into the future with my previous purchase.

Had some issues at the start but been running fine ever since

published

Bought and had the Blackvue DR650GW-2CH cam and T-Power UPS hard wired into my Mercedes Benz W205 C250 around mid June 2015 by Maroochy Car Sound. Had some issues at the very start with the DTV as a result of the cable to rear camera not being shielded properly but once that was resolved its been running fine ever since. I like the fact that I can now rely on it working every time I drive anywhere and it gives me peace of mind. I would never go back to the other brands. I have tried several other brands and they did not come close.
I like the fact that whilst the car is parked I have assurance that I am filming anyone that tries to scratch or steal anything.

Best thing since slice bread. I hear all the time he hit my car and denying it. Great to have for the safety of your family, all you hear these days is people getting hijacked. You need to see it with your own eyes to believe it. Great product. ✅.

Best Car Camera on the Market

published

The Blackvue is the best car camera on the market. Crystal clear picture, excellent features and easy to use software that easily bluetooths to your smartphone. If you're in the market for a car vamera, do yourself a favour and buy one of these for your vehicle, you wont regret it.

A Definate Necessity

published

I have learnt quickly in Newcastle & Central Coast NSW that double centre lines, traffic lights and stop signs around here are only for be law abiding citizens. And sorry, that's very few, considering I see 70 year olds overtaking in school zones and back streets and 8/10 drivers heading towards you with their drivers side wheels 1/2 metre across centre lines oblivious to their poor driving skills. In the UK, you would be arrested and charged. Anyway, I purchased this CAM out of necessity. The CAM works well and does the job its intended for.

I will upload one soon. Crazy driver 1/2 metre over double centre lines around a blind corner (curb side parked cars and vans in our lane block line of sight) and head on crash in to tractor - ouch !

Worked well at first, now causing problems.

published

Worked great at first, but now continually telling me that it is 'restarting'. Put a new genuine micro SD into machine but same result. Ongoing attempt to update software, change mamory card, etc, now means that 12 month warranty is up. Will you replace the camera Blackvue, or shall we go statutory warranty?

Great Product!

published

Awesome service and support from Automotive Superstore, I now have a camera front and rear in each of my cars and feel much safer! Took a little while to install and setup but now I couldn't be without them. They're going to be invaluable in case of an accident. Over the Cloud is great for backup of important events too

The Blackvue Dash Cameras only get better

published

This is the fourth BLACKVUE dash camera I've purchased over the past three years. I have them in all of my vehicles now and the quality of the image, the storage capacity and the app have improved over that time. When you install the Power Magic Pro, which allows recording when the ignition is off, it gives you piece of mind that if you car is damaged while its parked you'll be able to identify the vehicle or person who has damaged it.....and will save you money with the insurance excess when making a claim.

Blackvue 2 Channel dash camera

published

I keep on coming back to Blackvue to purchase their latest cameras. Just bought my third 2 channel camera, this time to take advantage of the 'over the cloud' option. The second camera I bought had an improved resolution. The first Blackvue camera I bought suited my needs perfectly. All purchases were made online using the dealer locator from Auto BlackBox. Their service and after sales assistance is first rate. Don't mess about, go buy a Blackvue camera. I didn't regret it, I am sure you wont either.

Questions & Answers

Benjamin C.

Benjamin C.asked

While reviewing playback from the SDCard for my Blackvue DR900S-2CH, I noticed in parking mode the playback is almost an hour not 3min which I set. And the playback is in 16X or 32X fast forward speed with no audio. Why?

1 answer

BlackVue Australia T.BlackVue

Hi Benjamin,
Thanks for getting in touch with your query.
It sounds like your units parking mode has been set to Time Lapse recording instead of Motion & Impact detection.
This will make the camera record 1 frame per second for the duration of the parking time and then plays the files back at 30 frames per second so a 30 minute recording period is played back in a 1 minute file.
To change settings access the firmware settings and under the basic then recording tabs change the parking mode recordings.
If you require further assistance please get in touch on the number below.

After upgrade firmware, my blackvue DR650S-2CH can't connect to wifi, it says "wifi unavailable"
Can you help me about this problem ?

Hi Yorinaldi, Thanks for sending your query through. Typically for this error message disabling mobile data on Android based devices will resolve the issue. However if you are using a apple device then a network reset maybe required to get it back up and running. Can you confirm if this error message is occurring in your devices WiFi network list or when trying to connect through the app?
Best regards,

My Dr650GW-1CH dashcam doesn't connect with mobile phones via wifi. Always message "wrong password ". I reset default passward to "Blackvue " .But problem is same.when I start my car gave audio message "wifi hotspot not avilable "
Blackvue support tell me to reset wifi channel. But I need simple and step by step help for solve this problem. Thanks

BlackVue Australia T.BlackVue

Hi Goldy,

For the DR650GW-1CH camera, the default camera password is usually "blackvue" with all lower case letters, can you please advise if you have tried this already? Regarding resetting the password, the only way to do this for the DR650GW/S series is to remove the microSD card from the camera and insert it into a PC/laptop. You will then be able to edit the current Wi-Fi password to a personal password if you wish.

If your camera starts up and says "Wi-Fi hotspot unavailable" it simply means that your camera is out of range of the Wi-Fi hotspot you registered for BlackVue Cloud (or the hotspot is currently off). Even if this message plays, you should still be able to directly Wi-Fi connect to the camera.

Please let us know if you require any clarification on the above points or had any other questions. You are also more than welcome to ring our support number below for assistance. Thank you!

Chris
