I would come back and buy from blackboxmycar
No matter when I’ve had a problem they’ve always been there for me - i would never go anywhere else
I purchased a B-124E to add to my Blackvue and B-124X setup. I needed this additional battery power because I’m also running a Nighthawk M1 hotspot that is powered by the 5V/2.0A usb-A output of the B-124X. Works flawlessly. My camera is always connected to Blackvue Cloud and I am always notified of motion and/or impacts.
So far I have capture 2 near miss accidents, several on road incidents and a hit and run on my vehicle. It captured the vehicle license plate and my car is being repaired on their dime.
I’m the DR900S-2CH combined with the B-124X is a killer combination. Enough battery power to keep your camera powered - even though your vehicle is off.
I purchased the hardwire kit and did a custom install directly with the fuse box for a cleaner install and faster charging rate.
I bought the A129 Pro Duo 4K after watching numerous videos especially those from Black Box My Car. For me, it was a great way to get 4k quality on a budget without necessarily needing all the features of the U1000.
I still have to set up the wiring harness to my 2016 Jetta, but so far just powering it on the cigarette lighter has offered me a great piece of mind while driving.
The VIOFO app works decent, and you can wirelessly download or watch clips from the camera to your iPhone by connecting via WiFi to the cam while sitting in the car.
If you want 4K quality to protect yourself and your car in the case of an accident, I would definitely recommend this cam.
I've just installed this with a thinkware camera. It is working excellent
I've been driving around with my DR590W for about a month now and I'm really quite pleased with it. I installed this myself on my 2017 Mustang Ecoboost using the Power Magic Pro (PMP) and the Essential BlackboxMyCar Install kit and it was very straightforward. There were lots of of videos/resources available for cable routing/fuse selection so no guessing on my part. Installation took about two hours.
So far I've been pretty happy with the quality of the footage - when viewed on my computer monitor, it's fairly easy to read license plates/determine make/model for cars directly in front of the camera. However, due to the wide angle lens, there's a slight fisheye effect that distorts things on the sides of the footage. I don't really see this being an issue.
Parking mode works as expected - footage is saved based on motion or acceleration triggers. With the PMP set to 12V, the camera records for the 8-9 hours I'm at work without issue.
The Android app works fairly well, with a couple of slight annoyances. To connect to the camera wifi (and transfer data), mobile data needs to be disabled on my phone. The app design is pretty intuitive, and it's pretty clear how to navigate through the menus, etc. The other problem I have is during video streaming - the video will buffer for a couple of seconds, then start to play, but stop after four seconds. I haven't been able to figure it out, but I can download the entire video segment without issue. The desktop viewer has more functionality than the phone app, but I found it far less intuitive to use (but there is good documentation on the blackvue website).
Overall, this dash cam has met my needs. It provides me some amount of reassurance that I will have video evidence in the event of an accident or parking lot collision.
- Built in Wifi allows for setting changes/video viewing without the need to remove the microSD card and find a computer
- Good quality (in day time, straight ahead)
- Parking mode (with PMP) protects against parking lot mishaps
- Plenty of spare wire length for rear camera
- Fisheye distortion on edges of footage
- mobile viewer will buffer, then only play four seconds of footage (but everything can be dowloaded without issue)
- desktop viewer has a learning curve (checking a filter removes that type of recording from the list)
- Android version of app requires disabling mobile data to connect to wifi
I am very happy with blackboxmycar, good service and fast delivery. I would recommend to someone else to buy from blackbocmycar
[$50 OFF] VIOFO A119 V3 QHD+ Dash Cam
USB Cable that came with original dash cam was doa, this works perfectly fine as a replacement.
Happy with purchase. Quality level was more than I expected. Customer support from BlackBoxMyCar was excellent! Murphy was patient and answered all my questions regarding the menu and best settings to use. The only thing I did not like were the cable clips (did not stick well) and I wish they provided more. Otherwise, it was very easy to install.
Nice solution for fast choice parking power alternatives. Also, I would prefer to have chosen the OBSD adapter version for easiness, but once installed should be fine. The cigar adapter contacts doesn't appear to be enough reliable.
it relay make the insulation for me very very easy and my customers was very happy because i didn't use any factory wire to connect the dash cam
i give to my customer 30% off from my insulation coast and i save 30 min from my instillation time .
Bought the front, rear and diagnostic port cable (plus their crevasse tool - buy this for sure, I didn’t need the huge install package). Setup was simple and the quality of image is stellar. I personally don’t like all the audio startup info (got old within a day) but will have to live with it, cannot turn it off it seems. For the overall system with me installing it myself, she gets 5/5, could be 6/5 if the audio could be turned off.
so i watched a video as they talked about all the best cameras of all different levels. i chose the best of the best. i placed the order and it was sent to me. literally just that easy
Hooked the unit to my truck amazing picture quality amazing videos great sound it has it all very satasfied
Thinkware Q800PRO 2K QHD Dash Cam
Very professional and was happy with all the service
Best mini 128GB at a nice price. Thank you
Quick shipping and all the tools necessary for me to easily install the DR900S. I've had the camera installed in our Equinox now for almost 90 days and I don't have any complaints with it. Changing settings and accessing the footage via wifi is straight forward and was very helpful to review with my daughter after our driving lessons! Now that she has her own car it's time to purchase a second dash cam and I don't have any hesitation in purchasing a second DR900S for it.
I bought the suction cup mount 10 days ago and every couple days I get an email about leaving a review so here it is. I have not used the suction cup mount yet or even taken it out of the packaging. I'm sure it's a nice mount but I can not attest to that. I can say when I contacted the website, they got back to me within a day and were very helpful. Would buy from "blackboxmycar" again.
I tried to use the financing option to pay for the camera. Story of my life, I was rejected for some stupid reason. I also had a lot of hours cut from work, so I didn’t get paid a whole lot. I ended up having to make the purchase in full, which left me with very little money. Other than that (I’m not holding it against anyone; the universe hates me lol), my experience shopping here was excellent. I didn’t have to pay any sales tax like I thought I would and shipping was free. The camera also arrived one day earlier than the initial estimate.
The system has been installed in our vehicle for only three or four days. I wanted to get the hardwire kit, but that’ll have to wait until next pay check. The power adapter that was included seems a little questionable. A little green disk lights up when it’s receiving power, which I like, and it includes two USB ports. I assume one to power the camera (duh) and the other for your phone or whatever. It has a three amp current output, but I don’t know how much the camera system uses. I figured probably 2 amps for the camera(s) and the last amp for your device. I didn’t like that it doesn’t list the input current, but that could just be me being picky. The power cord is plenty long enough for us. We installed it so that the cable runs out of the camera and then drops straight to the floor and back up to the power adapter. Absolutely nothing fancy about it. Well, we have a medium binder clip clipped onto one of the hvac vents and then the cable is ran inside of the...the flippy things you squeeze to open the clip.
The rear camera was a different story. I used the included wire clips to take the cable across the top of the windshield (to the passenger side), then I sent the cable over the sun visor, using it as support. Then I used the little hook over the back seat (the one you can put hangers and stuff on) as another support (did I mention this is an 05 Chevy cobalt). I then used another of the included hooks to hold the cable to the back windshield. There was a lot of leftover cable, so I lowered the back seat backrest and dropped the excess behind the seat. I do wish that both ends of the cable were angled or that the connector on the rear cam was angled. I had to place it fairly low on the window to allow the cable to plug in. It would also be pretty cool if there were some bigger cable clips included too so that I could stuff both cords into one clamp. I’d only need a couple though, as the two cables would depart ways early in the routing.
Installing the camera system was easy. Maybe a little too easy. I found a great spot to place the front cam first. It was right behind the rear view, and the mesh allowed me to get the camera installed level. I took the film off the sticky pad and very gently touched it to the glass to line it up before pressing it firmly. I got it just a little bit uneven, but the sticky pad had already taken a strong hold to the glass. It isn’t noticeable at all, which is good because I never got it unstuck to realign. I did take the gps unit off (since it is the base) and mounted /it/ to the window.
The rear cam went about the same, but I did have to peel it off a few times. Once because I misaligned it, again because I couldn’t fit the cable into the port, and yet again for the same reason. Other than those nuances, installation was fairly straightforward. I also downloaded the app (which only has two stars on the App Store!!) to assist in the installation (yay for live view lol). My first issue with the app was when I put my phone into landscape mode. It would seem like the app developers would have accounted for people who rotate their phone in different directions. I flipped mine in a direction the app wasn’t proud of, and I was getting an upside down view of everything. Of course, when I flipped my phone the other way, the view was right side up. But surely that’s not the reason it was given only 2 stars (I’ll come back to this. I’m writing this review chronologically).
The captured videos are massive in size. Almost a half gigabyte or more for a 10 minute recording. The instructions imply the cameras WiFi has a 5G mode. Either this is wrong, or the option is very, very well hidden. It takes about as much time to download a video as the videos duration is (10 minutes for a 10 minute video). It looks crisp on smaller displays, but on a 1440x1080 monitor (which is basically standard these days), the view becomes degraded rather obviously. As with basically all wide-angle cameras, it’s hard to get a good judge of distance and speed, which is part of why I wanted the gps (the leading factor was so that our speed would be stamped in the video, so no one could claim we were speeding or something if something happened).
Next came what I’m going to refer to as long-term testing. When I initially tested a video, there was still plenty of free space left on the included uSD card. My precious camera gave a weird issue. It’s videos ...
Thanks to All at BlackboxMyCar. From the time I purchased my Viofo 119 V3 Dashcam, to the excellent and timely delivery, and technical support I received from your Company is second to none. Thank you, look forward to doing business with you in the future.
I bought this dashcam based on very positive reviews! Well I received the package and realized that I was sent the wrong rear camera, a 1080p as the U1000 two channel comes with a 2K QHD rear camera! I was able to email Jonathan and he verified that I received the wrong camera and will send the matching camera when I send back the 1080p camera! Thank you Jonathan for your assistance! I could have bought from other authorized resellers but I had bought from you because your company is based on customer service! I could have paid more or less but customer service and support is more important to me! Loyalty to service is key! Even though you are located from almost opposite sides of the Country, your customer service sold me to you!!! Continued success!!!
