Happy but some questions..

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 24, 2018

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?

Thank you

Excellent product - Few things to be aware too

4 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 09, 2018

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!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 03, 2018

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.

Missing footage when needed most, new phone = start over for app?

2 out of 5, reviewed on Oct 16, 2018

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

2 out of 5, reviewed on Oct 10, 2018

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.

3 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 25, 2018

Its a very good quality camera for picture, very clear. love the camera it look cool and blends in with my car.
BUT the very annoying thing is when connected to WI FI the all the normal data service does not work. so have to turn of wifi if i want to use any data on my phone. This was annoying at first, but now i have it for a while, its frustrates me that i have to keep turning wi fi off when in car to use data and remember to turn it on when i get out of car.
i dont know why but cant use my location service or cloud service through the phone WIFI..

Good Camera overall. Features are good. Camera quality could be better

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 07, 2018

Had this for about a week and its been good so far. There are a few issues that bother me though.

1- The app does not us to manually delete of footage. Although you do not need to delete them as it writes over them, an option would be nice.

2- G sensor would record whenever i close my door even how lightly i close it and how low the sensitivity is. Should be a little smarter and perhaps only record it as an incident if the car doesn't move off in 5 mins?

3- the cloud connectivity sends me a notification on my phone (cloud connected or cloud disconnected) eveytime it gets connected to the internet or when i drive into my compound. An option to turn that off would be great. I wouldn't want to be reminded that im home as im driving home.

Other than that its a good overall camera and it seems reliable and well built. Price is a bit steep but i think if you're more focused on video quality, you can get other cameras with better quality with a fraction of the dr750s.

Fitted yesterday and so far so good

5 out of 5, reviewed on Apr 15, 2018

Fitted yesterday.

Cameras and app seem to work well. Ability to modify settings easy enough. I chose to operate my cameras without lights as they are apparently a theft risk. So I've switched off all LED lights which no longer distracts me white driving and makes it very subtle.

The front camera sits behind the rear view mirror so I can not see it other than for the wire connecting into the roof lining.

Seems very well presented and solid.

Only negative is it looks like it picks up my bad singing LOL

Awesome Dashcam - Excellent Video Quality.

5 out of 5, reviewed on Apr 02, 2018

I tried afew cheaper dashcams over the years. One thing I can say from experience is spend a little extra and get a quality unit, you'll be way ahead in the long run.

Took the plunge on the DR750S-2CH after discussing my options with a guy at SPORTGPS (forgot his name) who was pretty helpful and knew their stuff. Apprehensive at first but boy am I glad I did.

The Blackvue features and video quality are awesome. Light years better than the previous cheap dashcams I've owned. Fits nicely behind the rear view mirror and the app lets me connect with my phone to view live footage or change some settings on the fly.

Would I recommend it to anyone, you bet. Quality unit all round.

This is my 3rd dash cam, after poor experiences with other brands the guys at Alberts talked me into trying a BlackVue. I’m so glad I did, the footage is awesome and the app is the best in the business. Will definitely get one for my partners car as well. Would highly recommend.

Perfect addition to my Tesla

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 29, 2018

I hunted around for a long time looking for the best camera for my new Tesla, after a lot of research BlackVue seemed to be the only one that met, actually exceeded my expectations so I went for the front and rear option and opted for the largest memory card, which is 128gb, couldn’t be happier with the footage and how discrete it mounted in my car.

Not MMI friendly

3 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 26, 2018

Can't work with Audi MMI, as it interferes with the bluetooth when the iphone app is on. It plays back well on the iphone but takes up lot's of memory on your iphone. When the iphone app is on, you can receive calls on blue tooth but will not revert back to your radio station after the end of the call, otherwise, great little camera.

Great quality camera, poor app capabilities

2 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 23, 2018

Can’t fault the quality camera on this, it’s second to none and surpasses any other Dashcam I’ve seen.

The app however is a bit of a disappointment. It’s sluggish and clunky in areas, and data transfer is slow, even when using WiFi to the Dashcam and sitting in the car.

Even more of a disappointment is the lack of ability to rotate the front camera video. You can select to rotate the rear camera, but no option for the front camera. The reason this is an issue is that we had to install the camera flipped so the cables would go up the left side, as my car has a large safety camera and sensors behind the dash that controls the various car safety features. Such a small feature that should just be there from the get-go. Yes, I can remove the microSD card and use the BlackVue app on a computer to rotate the video, but then the time stamp is upside down, and it’s just a pain when it could just be built into the firmware like it is for the rear camera.

If the app got an upgrade, data transfer improved, and ability to rotate the front camera in addition to the rear camera, then this would be perfect.

G season fault

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jan 19, 2018

The funny thing is I have the same problem with my camera and the shop telling me that it’s the first one ! Tried a new one and it’s the same. A lot of money for something that has a bad fault. It’s been sent back to BlackVue and we will see. .Not happy.

February 16th 2018 Update:

I would first like to say how happy I am that Gold Coast car sound Paul and Gareth could not have been more helpful.
All the way through my problem Blackbox have answered my questions on here and have been very helpful.
In the end they phoned me to try and get to the bottom of my problem.
I have been told I am a little fussy and to some point that may be true.
I think that when you purchase something the back up help you get ,or not get is vital and this I have received
With out any negative response is brilliant.
Tom at Blackbox has listened to me and have made some adjustments and educated me
To the best adjustment for me.
There seems a fine line to record and false record with the g Sensor. But I would not like it
To not record something so the adjustments Tom advised me seem the best.
All in all the camera is a very nice piece of kit and the back up Top notch.

Silky Smooth footage

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jan 12, 2018

From my very little experience with dash cams I must say this one is my favourite so far.

Being able to access cam via cloud/wifi is great. no more fiddling around to get SD card out then forgetting to return it to the camera (i did this many times in the past).
And sharing footage is handy.

The support Blackvue have given via social media has been top notch as well.

I think its bit to expensive but good value if you get it on sale.

Awesome Dash Cam - Highly Recommend

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jan 11, 2018

Awesome bit of tech, been looking at a dash cam for a while now and decided on the Blackvue DR750s-2ch due to its tubular design. Its biggest draw card was its parking mode sensors as i work at major shopping centre and wanted the added security for my car due to careless drivers and vandals. The G Sensor and motion sensors are great, a tad sensitve but with a little trial and error i have got the settings where i want and couldnt be happier. The Wifi function makes changing the firmware settings very easy via the app on my Samsung S7. The Cloud function is great feature too as i have my work and home set as hot spots. Overall the video quality from both front and rear cameras are well above my expectations, especially at night. The unit was easy to install, Its a nice compact unit and blends in well with the interior of the BT50. This unit paired together with the Power Magic Pro is perfect. Definately recommend it.

Much better than my older DR500GW

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jan 05, 2018

This camera with its new sensor is a step above the older models. As said the G sensor is a bit too sensitive but can be turned right down and if you turn audio warnings off you dont notice it. Also have seen it said that video can be better especially at night on 30 fps and you need a fairly fast SD card to use 60fps I use a very fast 128Gb Samsung or a Sandisk extreme Bought mine on a promotion from Autobarn Xmas weekend with the PMP for $300

Questions & Answers

DR750S-2CH (2 Channel)

Hi I tried reformatting my BlackVue 750S 2CH and since it has continually repeated “initialising SD Card, do not disconnect power.... restarting” over and over again for literally hours. I purchased system at the end of August, so is not even two months old yet. Any idea what I can do to solve it? It’s way too early to be having issues with it after spending over $1000 having it hardwired into the front and rear of my car!

Chloe asked on Oct 15, 2018

Answer this

You will need to send it back in for replacement (at least I had to) supposedly the camera does not like any SD cards but the BlackVue

Hi Chloe, Can you confirm the size and brand of microSD card you are using? You can use non genuine ones, but they must be MLC Endurance cards, not TLC. However, BlackVue cards to have built-in error correction profiles to suit the cameras. Have you emailed our support team for a free replacement under warranty yet? If not, I'd suggest doing so, as your card will be covered under warranty
Thank you,
Tom.
Auto BlackBox Pty Ltd.

If you try to format non Blackvue SD cards, somehow you come across such an error. However, if you format SD card by your PC instead of DR750S itself, it works. I am currently using SunDisk 128GB SD card. No problem at all.

By the way, $1000 for hardwiring? That's a RO....

Maybe a silly question. But can I leave my camera plugged in overnight without it draining the battery? It is hardwired. I have a DR750S-1CH

Mark asked on Sep 26, 2018

Answer this

Hi Mark,
You can only do this if you are using the Power Magic Pro this will stop the camera from draining your battery, otherwise it will most likely drain it overnight.
