It works, but shouldn't have the word "Pro" anywhere in the title.
It works well, but the build quality is horrible. The cables feel like they'll pull straight out very easily and the switches feel cheap and have a lot of play.
Purchased in August 2020 at Repco Physical store for $46.00.
At the start this worked great.
All of a sudden it stopped working so I returned it for another and now the new one doesn’t work.
I’ve used a tester to check that it’s wired fine and it is.
Purchased in December 2019 at Autobarn for $69.95.
Useful... until they both fail [Edited - great customer service saves the day]
[Edit: Auto BlackBox are the Australian distributor for the BlackVue product range and they have been excellent in their handling of the problems I've reported.
I provided my faulty camera and the two Power Magic Pro units to them for investigation. They have replaced the camera under warranty for the timing and SD card issues and, despite being unable to confirm the faults reported, have replaced the PMP units as well. In this day and age, customer service of this standard is a rarity and should not be overlooked by customers looking for ...a quality dash-cam. It should be noted that, since we replaced one of the PMP units ourselves, we had a spare and this worked perfectly well with an alternative dash-cam we had bought for a third car, it is not just limited to BlackVue units.] Original Review Text (retained for clarity): We have two cars, each of which is fitted with a Blackvue DR650S 2CH (front and rear) dash camera. The cameras are good (though the Android app is a bit average and the firmware updating can be a pain) but they stop recording as soon as the car is turned off, which is not be ideal when you want to see who damaged the car in a car park or the like. I fitted both cars with a Blackvue Power Magic Pro (bought together or very close) - this provides permanent power to the camera until either the configured time expires (6/12/24hr) or the voltage of the car battery drops below a preset level (12V/12.5V). With the cameras configured to switch to parking mode, this allows the camera to monitor movement around the car when unattended. In addition it reduces the occasions where the device has to re-acquire the satellite lock to set the time accurately on power-up.
Purchased in January 2017 for $55.00.
