Did not fully function with Samsung phone
I am sharing my experience to make others aware their android phone may not support every function of the Blackvue dashcam DR750G . It was installed when I purchase my new care July 2021 – from the start it would record front and back but it would not play the front camera, only played the back camera. So I asked for help to resolve the issue. After more then six months of going back and forth with Blackvue, autoextreme and the dealership the issue could not be resolved. Also imagine my surprise being told by the blackvue support team that they...could not help me any further (after multiple email workarounds) and telling me to deal with Australia !!! I had no idea that HQ Korea was responding to me. However once I got an Australian support worker I must admit he was very understanding and he really did try to help me fix the issue and concluded that I should consider buying a more expensive phone. I told them my Samsung A21 was only 2 years old and I have the RING app on it and there are no issues. I finally got refunded and had the dashcam removed. Now I have a Uniden iGO 80 and it works good on my Samsung phone (the cheap one!). When we bought the dashcam, we were not warned that it may not work with our phone. Also we found the dashcam was draining the car battery as we had numerous low battery warnings from the car which alarmed me. Now the blackvue dashcam is gone - no more car battery issues. I was disappointed by the whole experience but by no means am I saying the blackvue dashcam isn’t great and doesn’t have quality. I am just giving awareness to the issues/pain you may face if you don’t have the right phone. I recommend if you can try before you buy.

Had 2 already and 2nd one just died both in less than a year. Won't be getting another
My first one stop working after a few months. Got it replaced through warranty now the 2nd one has died too both in less than a year. I don't think I'll be getting another even through warranty.

I purchased the LTE version of this device (DR750-2CH LTE) to connect my car's head unit to the cloud (mostly for Spotify). It has a limit of 1 wifi connection, but that was fine for my requirements.
I was initially disappointed with myself because I was told it did not pass through internet to wifi devices, and I had not done enough research. The cloud features are good but was not worth paying $150/year for a 4G SIM card alone.
Much to my pleasure, I had updated the firmware and found the internet is being passed to my head unit! So now I ...have a cloud connect dashcam and also a cloud connected head unit. Very happy. It is and advertised as FHD so don't expect to vision to be ultra clear. If you need plates, get a an ultra HD version. You should probably get a Battery Pack for it. I didn't and opted for the Power Magic Pro instead. It means I have to avoid some features. For example, I've configured my setup to cut out at 6 hours and I have it set to timelapse to save battery.
Purchased in at eBay for $550.
Refuses to work on the cloud.
How easy was it to set up and use this camera?
Fiddley but doable. I also installed a hard wiring kit so it works while the car is parked.
How would you describe the quality of the recorded footage?
Excellent. I did have a bit of glare from the dash on the screen but I fixed this by getting some polarised lenses for both cameras.
How satisfied are you with the connectivity of the dash cam?
Completely dissatisfied. It connected to the cloud (via wifi hotspot) once and never again. I've followed tech supports dirrections and they can't figure it out either. Keep going around in circles trying the same fixes.
Now my phone won't connect via wifi anymore either.

We bought our car new and got this dash installed. First it said check Sd card, the second day of driving it keeps restarting. We have the original sd card of blackvue. We reformatted the sd card and the same thing keeps happening. Can we know what the issue is. It's was costly to get and install and now we can't afford to get another one.. any help will be great

Definition of great service .
After posting a very negative review, BlackVue management reached out to me personally and went to a lot of trouble in negotiating a suitable outcome with Melville Hyundai car dealership, fully replacing the camera, and spending a significant amount of time running over it with me.
I feel my complaints were truly heard and I’m very appreciative that they dedicated so much effort into fixing the situation. Throughout the process they communicated with me regularly - keeping me constantly updated as to where things were at.
In my opinion, through this, the Blackvue team has demonstrated the pinnacle of good customer care.
Congratulations BlackVue you have a convert in me!

Great product for the rubbish bin.
Only had this camera for a few months.
When I did need it the dates where all wrong and to change it all files need to be deleted making it completely useless.
What a piece of s##t.
4 month now it’s in the rubbish where it belongs.

Satisfied with the Dashcam
I owned two units of DR750S two-channel and a battery, I bought them back in Jan 2020 from Autobarn.
Earlier, the second unit has issues which have been rectified.
Thanks to Chaim in the assisting of warranty claim, much appreciated.
So far, both Dashcams are working properly and I am satisfied with them.

- DR750S-2CH (2 Channel)
Just upgraded my Blackvue to DR750S dual channel after rear camera was damaged in accident My 650 dual was 6 years old Bullet proof build and ease of use
The 750 click into existing holders from 650 so installation was seamless
I am hoping will get similar life from this investment
Interface is same so I am used to it and confident to operate it
Image quality has improved with new sensors especially low light rear is now 1080 as well can easily read number plates and see faces in both cameras
Will revert with further update
Purchased in at repco for $419.30.

Ruined my life thief’s love them !
I purchased these with my Mazda 3 from Max Kirwin motors Preston l . I had security concerns . They were easily hacked and my life is ruined . The company didn’t do a thing . Avoid
Purchased in at Max Kirwin Mazda for $1,500.
Very simple to install - Software very user friendly
Easy to install (tucked the cable in behind roof trim, behind rubber seal of A-Pillar, under the dash, and then tucked under centre console so that 12V Plug could be inserted in rear seat 12V Accessory Socket)
Tried various recording options and eventually settled for 720p so that 3min recordings could be made. If you choose the higher quality settings (1080p), recordings are 1min in duration....too many.
Software is easy to use and the only issue I have encountered is sometimes my Phone won't connect to the Dashcam Wi-Fi for transferring of recordings.
Purchased in at Repco Online store for $300.
Questions & Answers
I have a DR750S installed a year or so. When I switch off the engine the camera would switch off itself and when I restart the engine, it would so likewise. For some reason, now it keeps recording even when I switch off the engine. I can see a green light that keep blinking when the engine is off. Can you help. Thanks Vernon
Thanks for reaching out to us. Are you able to advise how the camera has been installed into the vehicle?...Is it going through the cig socket or hardwired? If hardwired please advise what kit was used. This will give us insight into how the camera should be behaving and we will be able to advise further. Best regards, Chaim BlackVue Australia 08 6267 5167
Hi Chaim, Thanks for your reply. It has been hardwired using power magic pro.
Thanks for confirming....The green light on the camera would indicate it is in parking mode and still receiving power. If you flick the Power magic pro boot switch in the opposite direction this should stop the unit from receiving power when the cars engine is turned off. Best regards, Chaim BlackVue Australia 08 6267 5167
I had a new BLACKVUE DR 900 2CH PLUS fitted to my 2021 Audi RSQ3 yesterday from a trusted dealer who has done heaps of work on my cars over the years but the wifi connection keeps getting kicked because the Audi MMI system over rides the Blackvue. I asked the Australian distributor for advise and he told me to turn off my Bluetooth ? Surly they would know that the Audi’s run via wifi, does anyone else have a solution before I return the camera?
Are you able to connect to any other available WiFi networks or does the Audi MMI system overwrite that as well?...For the camera to be accessible via the BlackVue App the phone will need to stay connected to the BlackVue camera. If you disconnect from the Audi MMI system does the WiFi connect stay connected? Best regards, BlackVue Australia 08 6267 5167
What is the difference between the dr750g vs dr750x vs dr750s?
The DR750G Pro is a 2KQHD@30FPS front camera and 1080P@30FPS rear camera....This model also comes with additional ADAS features such as lane departure and forward vehicle start alarm. This model is also only available in car dealerships. The DR750X Plus is a 1080P@60FPS front camera and 1080P@30FPS rear camera. This model has a built in hardwiring kit so it can be wired directly to your vehicle.. This model is available from our resellers. The DR750S is a 1080P@60FPS front camera and 1080P@30FPS rear camera. This model is discontinued and was superseded by the DR750X Plus. Best regards, Chaim BlackVue Australia 08 6267 5167

With an RRP of $986, the BlackVue DR750S is undoubtedly one of the higher-end offerings when it comes to dash cams. It’s equipped with a host of features to help justify the cost, though.
Its 1080p Full HD Dash Cams are available in either 1 channel (front camera) or 2 channel (front and rear camera) options. The brand claims that their quality is enhanced by Sony STARVIS sensors, which work well in low light and can be used at night to pick up an accurate level of detail.
This car cam also features Sport Mode and Extreme Mode, both of which record surroundings at a high 60 frames per second. For even more precision, the in-built GPS function adds location and speed data to videos.
The BlackVue DR750S automatically switches to Parking Mode when you turn off your ignition. While this mode won’t automatically record footage, it will write it to the memory card if the dash cam detects motion or an impact. However, keep in mind that activating Parking Mode requires an external battery pack (called a Power Magic Battery Pack) or a hardwiring kit (Power Magic Pro).
In-built WiFi and cloud compatibility with BlackVue's Over The Cloud makes it easy to connect your dash cam to your smartphone or tablet. You can also download the BlackVue Viewer for Windows or Mac, if you’d prefer your playback on a larger screen.
