Excellent product with a wonderful quality. The dashcam provides beautifully clear video and is easy to download onto my iPhone. I can highly recommend this dashcam. Matt V. Box Hill Victoria
Good camera but high failure rate
I replaced my DR650 2-CH in September of 2018 with the DR750S-2CH after the original front camera and cable suffered some damage. Autobarn replaced cable and main front camera and left the original rear camera in place leaving a spare brand new rear camera in the box. I have now replaced that car and I had an Auto Electrician re-install the camera into my new car using the new rear camera which unfortunately will not power up. I had to use my original rear camera again. I say high failure rate because I had the same issue when I first bought the 650 back in 2014 it too had to be replaced when it failed after less than 24 hours. Like I say these are good cameras when they work but the failure rate at of the rear cameras in my experience is unacceptable for the price. I am currently in the process of trying to get the rear camera replaced.
Updated to add: big thanks to Ben from Auto Blackbox for his assistance in resolving this issue
The perfect companion for my new car
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!
Expensive, complicated and useless when really needed.
We installed the camera (front and rear) as an extra option from the Toyota dealer, paid $1200.
First impression: It's complicated to set up and tutorials available are from third parties. BlackVue offers more ads than useful tutorials.
(I had a Uniden camera before and it was so much simple to use and straight forward).
After installing the app, the configuration is also complicated. Too many unnecessary features like "live stream on Facebook".
The big downside: YOU CAN'T MANUALLY LOCK (SAVE) AN EVENT. My wife witnessed a mayor car crash at the Sydney M5 and she couldn't save the recording. Once at home that evening (after 9 hours) we couldn't find the event, It had been overwritten. My cheap $80 Uniden Cam had a "panic bottom" that once pressed would safe a flying UFO in front of your car for ever until needed.
*This expensive camera SHOULD have a kind of "Panic bottom" to manually save any events at will*
Also the parking mode only works for 1 hour or less, even with the Power Magic Box installed.
In summary, the camera isn't any better than cheaper ones.
Peace of mind
Upgrade from 650 to 750 after four years installed easily and works great. Notice picture quality and same ease of use including the cloud feature. Very happy with new camera

Good cameras both front and back
I purchased this product and have found them to be great value for money, does everthing I want done easily. Very satisfied, after sales service is really great as well. Highly recommend this product.
Purchased in August 2018 at Autobarn Browns Plains.
All the features you would want, Excellent quality video and superb customer service and backup
Ok so I purchased my dash cam about 12 months and up until recently have not needed to view the video until two weeks ago. In short the video terrible I contacted BlackVue Australia who asked to see some video that I had recorded and straight away they agreed that the quality was not satisfactory and the cameras are in fact faulty. The same day they had a replacement unit in the mail which I received two days later. The video quality is excellent now. Thank you BlackVue Australia for the best after sales service i have ever recieved.
Purchased in March 2018 for $700.00.
Excellent product - very happy
The set up was straight forward and simple to use when it is all good to go. The PMP otherwise was a bit of a fuss but managed to make it work. I'm satisfied with the excellent quality of the recording! Would recommend.
Purchased in February 2019.
Great dashcam for the price
Camera was one of the best i purchased so far ! The video footage was so much better then my old 650 and the night vision has improved alot as well
Bought this for my son's car, and can now rest easy if he's ever involved in an accident as we will have proof of the incident. We bought 3 units.
Great Dash Cam
Good quality product. I’m very happy with the DR750s. The associated app has all the functionality I need to view video files and get notifications from the camera while I’m away from the car. I added a battery saver and a 4G mobile hotspot into the car to facilitate this
Great Dashcam but.....
Love the dashcam but it doesn’t make sense supplying the 2ch product with such a small SD card. The supplied 16gb Card is way too small to keep recordings for the front and rear cams and the issue is even more exacerbated when in parking mode via PMP. Other than that, recording quality is good, software/app should have zoom and snapshot functionality and ability to tie footage together but doesn’t or I cannot find it. Hardwiring into BMW wasn’t as easy as the instructions indicated and required a little trial and error. Would help if BlackVue had a more comprehensive library of help/FAQs in installing in various cars, including modern cars that have battery saving modes. Setting up g-sensor is quite finicky and requires a bit of guess work along with a lot of testing to get it right, well as close to right as it can be. I’d like to recommend the 750s but BlackVue need to supply much larger SD card for such a premium $$ dashcam.
Excellent Front camera quality
Easy to install and the quality of the front camera is great. Cannot comment on the rear camera as the supplied cable is too short for the Toyota Hilux with rear canopy. Need to investigate cable extension options. Also easy connection to phone with very simple instructions and iOS download.
Happy but some questions..
Happy with my blackvue dash cam. Was setup professionally by an independent auto shop (not by blackvue). However this company did not seem to have the time to explain how my new blackvue set up works so I have muddled through it myself. I understand how it all works now, I think, and I am happy with cloud and WiFi connections and the concept of this. I am wondering if I can set up a 3rd WiFi option (for at work) If so, where can I find how to do this. Also, is the WiFi connection only approximately a 10 meter range?
Excellent product - Few things to be aware too
Very easy to set up, but the cable to connect main front cam and rear cam is slightly short for my vehicle (4.75m long vehicle) if I try to completely conceal the cable. It would have been much better if the cable is 0.5-1m longer..
Quality of recorded footage is good, but struggles to capture plate number of the vehicle in front during the night driving when head lights are on.
I've hardwired DR750S using Power Magic Pro (hardwiring kit) in order to use the parking mode. This kit has few issues. 1) Cigar jack connection socket is used to connect the dash cam and the kit, meaning you have to have a certain space around your fuse box, 2) If you have no suitable fuse for connection around the driver seat, the switch box would be placed away from the driver seat. My case I had to place it at the far corner of the glove box because suitable fuses are found on the passenger seat side which is a bit inconvenient. 3) GND wire's terminal is so small, so I had to change it with bigger one before connecting.
Cloud function is a very handy function, but have to have a mobile Wi-Fi device connected to a mobile battery for long hour use unless your cigar socket is connected to a constant fuse.
And lastly, if you want to use a larger size SD card, make sure to format it by your PC first. If you format or initialise it through the dash cam, it won't work unless it is a Blackvue SD card. I am using SunDisk 128GB which was formatted first by my i-Mac and it is working perfectly.
Excellent Camera, Support thats second to none. Dont buy a Lemon Product or service!
Nice Dash cam, easy to use, good features. App is very good especially for retrieving footage onsite where an accident has occurred for viewing by Police. Set up was pretty easy & recorded quality is very good. Rear camera ideal as sometimes front only camera tells half of the story. Had an issue with the camera & received Excellent service from Auto Blackbox, the Australian Distributor for Blackvue Dashcams. They go above & beyond should any issues arrive with your Camera, Doesn't matter what Retailer you brought from. Even follow up Phone calls or emails to make sure everything is good & you are Satisfied. I would dare say by far the best customer service I have ever had on any product I have ever purchased. If only all Customer service was this Good!!
A big Thank you to Chris, Tom and the team.
Everything is perfect
5/5 for night n day time
5/5 for recording
With this camera u can’t go wrong with anything
I like it so much I bought any one for my another car. The BlackVue app work excellent too
The cloud is work excellent too if u have wifi hotspot in ur car
Missing footage when needed most, new phone = start over for app?
First it seems that my new phone samsung S9+ transferred the app from my S8+ but did not bring the camera(s) information with it. huge hassle cant find the blackvue box to scanning the code or find serial # to set up the new phone.... so I still have my S8+ and was able to connect via wifi and view some of the footage.
TO my surprise the camera seems to only record several minutes of each drive or not at all. Today of all days, on my way home about 7 minutes into the drive there was a tree trimming crew on the side of the road working. One of the guys goes to throw a pretty big branch into the truck he is working with but over throws the bed of the truck and the branch lands in front of my car bounces up and breaks the trim on the front lower end of the car.
I think, no worries I have it all on video. WRONG camera was not working during that part of the drive, it appears to have shut off or stop recording within several minutes of leaving home depot!!!
good image quality but quite a few flaws
I will not complain about image quality but the system has some serious shortcoming.
1. If you use WiFi functionality to connect it to your phone you will not have Internet so forget using Google Maps or anything else while connected to the App. This is a design flaw from BlackVue as you can actually specify that your wifi connection does not provide internet like the GoPro or TomTom Bandit action cames do. This will then allow you to use 3/4G for internet while connected to the camera via WiFi.
2. The app is mediocre and not very user-friendly.
3. There is no way to quickly tag an event, someone cut's in front of you etc. trying to find that event later means spending a lot of time going through all footage.
4. Purchased a Scan Disk 64GB DashCam card which does not work in camera.
5. After a recent Firmware update camera ended up in restarting loop. Needed to send it in and received a replacement after a few weeks.
Overall I regretted my purchase and would not purchase it again.
