FAQ

What is a dash cam?

A dash cam stands for a dashboard camera that is mounted inside the vehicle, usually on the front windshield. A dash cam, depending on the model, can do many things such as record both when the vehicle is being driven and when it’s parked, record audio, provide a connection to a smartphone app so that video can be reviewed and saved on the spot, etc.

What is an IR dash cam?

An IR dash cam is a dash cam with infrared lights that provide recording details under poorly-lit conditions, as well as total darkness. These are dual-channel dash cam setups with a regular front-facing unit and a secondary unit that comes with infrared lights.

The secondary unit is typically mounted to face and record the interior of the vehicle, and thus is especially recommended for rideshare users, such as for Uber and Lyft, or for commercial use, such as fleet managers.

Why buy a premium dash cam?

There are a few reasons as to why this is the case, and these reasons make a huge difference. Learn more about premium features including design, parking mode, smartphone integration, 4K UHD video resolution, g-force, ADAS, memory card storage and more.

What is parking mode?

Parking mode recording is a feature of a dash cam that keeps your dash cam recording footage even when the vehicle is off. Typically found only in premium dash cams, parking mode provides around-the-clock protection and surveillance for the vehicle.

What is Wi-Fi & GPS?

The wi-fi feature in a dash cam is what allows a smartphone to be paired to the dash cams. Unlike a regular wi-fi network signal that gives you internet access, the purpose here is just to connect the dash cam and smartphone together.

The GPS feature in a dash cam shows the vehicle’s speed and, for some models, the location of the vehicle with Google Maps integration.

Best Site for the Best Dashcams Around

My 2nd purchase from Alex and 2nd Blackvue camera purchased. Blackvue is my favourite dashcam because of its sleek and unobtrusive design and extremely high quality recordings. Easy to download recordings with the app now, will continue to recommend Blackvue's to everyone.

As for blackboxmycar.ca, great selection of the best Dashcams out on the market. Extremely informative website with an abundance of information and comparisons to make the right choice. Fast shipping and great customer service, this is the way to go to buy a dashcam over the cheaper but inferior choices on Amazon or anywhere else.

Hi Wesley, thanks for your review. We're glad to hear that you're loving your BlackVue dash cam as much as we do! Hope the DR590W-1CH treats you well :) If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our team.

Great little camera!

We had used Roav cameras and Wheel Witness Pro dash cameras over the years but both usually have structural or video failure within 12-18 months. These seem much sturdier and the video is very good, too!

Hi Jennifer, thank you for leaving a review! We're glad to hear that you're loving the BlackVue DR590W-1CH :)

Blackbox and Blackvue get 5 stars up from me

I ordered the BlackVue DR590W-1CH WiFi Dash Cam, after enjoying a Youtube video interview with Alex. The Youtube video was informative and understandable, quite refreshing from many other Youtube webcam videos I found confusing and difficult to comprehend.
The Blackboxmycar website was well laid out, easy to navigate, the reviews were informative and user based with openness and comfort. This was very helpful as my main concern was having smooth and seamless operation with parking mode, to which I also purchased and installed the "Power Magic Pro", based on other reviews.
Shipping was very fast and trackable, package received in under 3 days, thank you and well done to Blackboxmycar shipping department. All aspects of the order were communicated via email and text and the package arrived seamlessly and painless.
With the cam installed, up and running, parking mode is fabulous, I have already captured an incident/accident right in front of me involving 3 cars. Would ICBC be interested in the video capture??
I am not the most technologically savvy consumer, however the operation an user friendliness and ease of operation of this unit from Blackvue and Blackbox has me tickled pink and am thoroughly pleased with my purchase.

Thank you Alex and Jordan - signed a very happy customer

It's a nice dashcam but I don't like the fact that I couldn't zoom into my videos on the phone app but only on a computer,so I sent it back and get the blackvue dr900s 2channel which is very awesome. But I really like the customer service at blackboxmycar, they are very helpful and answer all your questions.

Good but not perfect. But darn, they just announced an improved model!

Easy installation. I installed this to replace a 360 view dashcam that had terrible image quality. I’m very technically experienced and the app/install was not intuitive, but it all worked. Many of the online reviews that said the app was totally unusable seem a bit harsh. Image isn’t quite as crisp as I had hoped, but reasonably good. Candidly, the biggest disappointment is that the day after installing the camera, I received the announcement from BlackVue that they’ve announced at CES improvements to this camera and an even better 4GLTE camera! I depended on the advice from BlackboxMyCar and would have waiting for the updated models.

A must have for your car

The picture quality is great even in night mode very clear. A good investment for your safety.

Price and Quality sweet spot

My first dashcam, I installed with the additional 3-wire ACC kit in my 2010 Colorado Crew Cab. My only gripe is that I wish the rear camera could also be connected through the GPS module so that I don't have to disconnect the cable when removing the camera from my truck to look at footage. I find it easier to pop off the camera from the GPS mount, then connect with the supplied mini-USB cable to my laptop. Otherwise, the image and audio quality is really great, and it has all the necessary functions.

Really good dashcam, but......

Have really no complains withe the cam itself but the rear cam I can't use as the is no place to stick it to as the back of my truck is all fabric. If your gonna buy a dashcam that has front and rear cameras make sure there somewhere to stick it to. It would be nice if there were a small suction mount for rear camera as well. All in all I would recommend buying this dash cam!
