BlackVue DR750S-2CH Direct WiFi Guide

BlackVue DR750S-2CH WiFi Guide

The direct WiFi connection is an excellent convenience feature on the BlackVue DR750S-1CH and DR750S-2CH. This is not to be confused with the BlackVue Over the Cloud which offers additional features which require internet connectivity. The direct WiFi does not require cellular data as it is just a local connection between the phone and dash cam. You just need the Android or iOS app and a WiFi enabled device to use it.

What's new with the DR750S

First, let's cover what's changed between the old DR650S and the new DR750S. According to BlackVue, despite having larger file sizes due to higher bitrate, the DR750S download speeds over WiFi are faster. For anyone coming from an older BlackVue device, it's also important to note that the default password is no longer BlackVue. The new password will be device specific and can be found on a sticker underneath the front camera mount along with your SSID and cloud code. This provides improved security compared to having the same password across all devices, especially when considering WiFi is always on by default.

Smartphone App

To use the Direct WiFi feature, connect your phone to the camera's wifi network and then choose "BlackVue Wi-Fi" in the app. The main menu is the same as the DR650S. There's a list of video files that you can filter based on recording mode, a live view option on the bottom, and firmware settings on the top right. If you would like to play any of these videos, simply click the file name. Alternatively, if you want to download it to your phone's hard drive, click the options and choose the "copy to internal memory".

Firmware Settings

You can access the camera's firmware settings by clicking the gear icon on the home page of the WiFi app. This lets you customize your dash cam to your preferences. On the top of this page you'll see your firmware version number. Remember that if you change any of the settings in this app, you'll need to hit the save and close button to properly apply your settings. This will also restart the dash cam so you will be disconnected after clicking it.

Basic Settings

The basic settings should be the first settings you go through when you first set up your dash cam. With the DR750S you need to set the time based on GMT time zone. If you are unsure of your time zone, you can look this up online by searching your city and time zone in Google. You can verify that the time was set properly by looking at the live view afterwards. Do note that changing the time zone will require a format so make sure you don't have any important videos before you change this setting.

Under the recording settings, we recommend turning on the "lock event files" option which will give you the new event partitioning feature for the DR750S. We also recommend turning on the overwrite feature for this partition, otherwise it will get stuck when it reaches 50 files. You can also change your speed display unit or turn it off altogether under the recording tab. 

Lastly there are the video settings. Generally speaking we like to leave these at the default which offers the 1080P recording @ 60 frames per second. If you find that the night time video is too dark, you can enable the night vision feature. Another new setting is the fact that the front and rear brightness can now be set independently. 

Sensitivity Settings

Under this menu you can change your g-sensor and motion sensor sensitivity. The motion detection algorithm has been revised for the DR750S to reduce the number of false triggers and we find that the default setting works quite well. If you only want your parking mode to trigger by the G-sensor, you can turn the motion detection to 0. With the G-sensor, we typically leave the parking mode setting to the default but the normal mode typically needs to be turned down. In our testing, we experienced a lot of false events in driving mode using the default setting.

System Settings

The system settings name isn't very specific but there's actually some pretty handy features in here. The first one to look at would be the LED settings, for our personal use we like to turn everything off except for the recording status. That way the dash cam is very discreet but you can still see that it's recording properly. The proximity sensor setting refers to the touch sensor on the left side of the camera. This can be set up to turn voice recording on and off but we prefer using it for manual recording. With the new event partitioning feature, you can essentially use this as a manual event button. If you find the camera is too talkative, you can also turn off specific voice alerts and turn the volume down. 

Blackvue system settings

One innovative feature that's enabled by default is the scheduled reboot function. This will turn your dash cam off once every night to make sure it runs smoothly. You can change the time at which it does this reboot or turn the feature off altogether if you don't like it. 

Cloud/Wi-Fi Settings

In the cloud settings you can program your wifi hotspots and set up what notifications to trigger via cloud. You can also turn off the cloud feature altogether which will also allow you to auto turn off the WiFi. If you don't plan on using the cloud, we recommend doing this as it will extend your parking mode recording time since the power consumption will be lower. If you want to change your camera's WiFi SSID or password, you can do so under the WiFi menu as well.

Initial review: A-OK.

I bought this after testing out a budget Rove R2-4k LCD dash cam that sent me running for a better quality high-end unit. By that comparison standard, this DR900S-2ch is mind blowing.

Setup was particularly easy -- well, wiring can be a work-out as with all models, especially a rear-camera going into a hatch back -- but the moment I plugged it in, it all started working. I especially like the audio prompts, and the indicator light on the rear window camera; one glance in the rear view mirror and I know it's working, and yet not distracting. (the rear camera is very small)

I also love how incredibly secure the mounting is. My cheaper Rove unit mount was quite flimsy.

The power cables were also impressive -- with plugs that small, I was afraid they'd dislodge easily, but the design of the plugs are quite secure.

More time will tell, but after about two weeks now I have no complaints. I will likely buy a second 2ch unit soon.

Blackboxmycar and Viofo a129 duo

Wanting a dash cam, I started my quest by googling and youtubing. Blackboxmycar seemed to be the most popular recommendation. Visiting the website, watching their videos, reading reviews and looking thru the FAQs, I was ready and narrowed my option down too two cameras. Bewtween Jordan and Katrina, they finished my education and answered questions that I had confusion with - and they made it clear and easy to understand. The process of ordering was simple and sweet. All the way from receiving the Viofo camera, setting it up and post-purchase questions - what a great experience. Thank you! Watching the install videos made it a breeze. Its unfortunate that I do not use facebook, twitter, googlesomethanrathernutter, or else I would use those review options too. So Im glad you reached out with a web option!
I love this cam!

Happy Customer

I’m happy with their service. Professional and helpful.

Hello Becky, thank you for your review!
BBMC Experience

I began looking into dashcams about a month ago and came across a video interview between Alex and Vortex Radar. During my research it became evident that BBMC was the leading re-seller in Canada and maybe in the USA. Their pricing was competitive. I posed a few pre-purchase enquiries to BBMC. They responded quickly and in an understandable way. Ultimately, I made an on-line purchase that was delivered fast with great tracking. As it turned out, I made a mistake with my order and it was fixed without delay. Dashcam was self installed now with all wires hidden and looking good. Thanks, BBMC. You know how to provide a great on-line experience.

(BlackVue DR900S-2CH) Amazing Product & magnificent Service !

I recently purchased a Blackvue 2ch DR-900s from BlackBoxMyCar and I am very happy with this camera so far. I spoke with a representative from the live chat named Paul and he was very helpful in setting me up with everything i needed to hard wire this unit. I received my full setup in less than a week and it was packaged very nicely. I realized when i went to wire it into my vehicle the fuse taps i received were the wrong one's. So i contact BlackBoxMyCar support and spoke to Paul who i believe was the same person i spoke to the first time and he and the team @BlackBoxMyCar was very helpful and fast at responding to my messages and ensured me they would send out the correct fuse taps which i received 2 days after they were shipped out. I Would highly recommend BlackBoxMyCar for anything you need !

Hello Joseph, thank you for taking the time to send us a review and we will definitely pass it on to Paul.
Great for first timers

Phenomenal Video Quality and Overall Capabilities

I finally got around to installing the Thinkware U1000 2-channel cameras and radar. Truly couldn’t be more satisfied with the result and the many options that this camera and software has to offer. Amazing video quality and great user interface. Couldn’t ask for more.

Hello EVOLVNG, thank you for sending us a review! Yes, the U1000 is a great dash cam, couldn't agree more! Enjoy and do send us some footage - we have monthly dash cam video contests: https://www.blackboxmycar.com/pages/monthly-video-contest.

Overall great dash cam

I was waiting for a 4k dash cam for a while and almost convinced myself to wait for later next year. What made me pull the trigger on the U1000 was the 2K rear cam resolution. It's an upgrade from my F800PRO. I have it with the cellink neo battery for parking mode. Overall it's a great dash cam to have for my needs (mostly time lapse parking mode).

Just have 1 very small inconvenience. Sometimes I can't find the dash cam in the wifi network when I'm surrounded by a lot of houses with a lot of wifi networks. It suggests to turn off wifi direct but I never had it on. The first time I tried to set it up consisted on me turning off and on the dash cam until it appears at the top of the list of wifi networks. Now if I wanted to change a setting, I just do it at a public parking lot.

Night quality needs improvement (this is why not 5 stars). I hope they have an update to improve it.

Thank you J C for the kind words. We're glad to hear that you've decided to make the upgrade from the F800PRO to the U1000 - it's a great time to do so! We do have regular communication with Thinkware on these issues, and we will definitely bring it up with them. They constantly release new firmware for their dash cams and the app, so we're confident this issue will be squashed very quickly. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at info@blackboxmycar.com or live chat with us directly on our website.
Review of THINKWARE F800 PRO

After a extended period of research I decided on the THINKWARE F800 PRO Dash CAM. Purchased both a front and rear camera with a CPL Filter for the front camera. My car has a very sloped windshield so the glare off the dash causes distortion and blurry footage; the CPL FILTER solves this problem. Would also recommend a Samsung PRO ENDURANCE 128GB Micro SDXC memory card; more money but worth it. These cameras are expensive but the quality of the footage and cameras speak for themselves. I purchased from BLACKBOXMYCAR because Alex Jang and his company stand behind and take care of the products they sell. I hope this review will help others find a great quality product and company as I was able to find in BLACKBOXMYCAR ( and no I did not know Alex or his company before I started my research. )

Thank you Duncan for the kind words. We're glad to hear that you found everything you needed at BlackboxMyCar. Your feedback is crucial in helping us become better, so we really appreciate that you've decided to leave a review :) If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at info@blackboxmycar.com or live chat with us directly on our website.
Great service

BlackboxMyCar provided great service and a walk through of the dash cam I got installed.

The cameras were installed very cleanly and work great, and the receptionist gave me a few tips for the app and storage options in the future.

Thanks,

Thinkware U1000 4K UHD Dual-Channel Cloud Dash Cam

This is the fourth dash cam I have tried and am FINALLY satisfied with the results!

The first dash cam was a single front 4K cam. This worked really well, but didn't come with the option of adding a rear dash cam (still have this).

The second one was a front camera with an inside view rear dash cam by Soliom that did a 380 degree recording view. This dash cam had decent recorded footage for the price, but would constantly freeze on me and then wouldn't record when driving. It kept on having to be reset in the middle of driving for the footage to start recording again.

The third was owlcam. This camera was convenient, but didn't work the best. It always had problems connecting and had HORRIBLE footage at night!

Lastly, I decided to spend a little more and get exactly what I wanted. I wanted a separate rear view camera because I was involved in a hit and run incident at my college which led to me trying these different dash cams. Well, I believe I have finally found the product I was looking for from a company that worked with me really well!

Jordan was very helpful in assisting me and price matching. The camera was expected to show up December 2, 2019 and I actually received it November 29, 2019. This was a pleasant surprise!

Thanks BlackboxMycar!

Hello Shawn, thanks for the review! You made a great choice with the Thinkware U1000 4K Dual-Channel - it's currently one of the best, and highest resolution dash cam systems on the market! We are glad that you were able to take advantage of our promotions and offers. Check out our website often as we will be posting a follow-up review on the U1000 as well as more articles and guides to show users how to unleash the full potential of the dash cam - it's a great dash cam!
Impressive!

Decided to purchase 2 of these during the Black Friday sale and I have to say that I am very impressed with the quality of the dashcam as well as the footage I've been able to capture. Granted, this is my first dashcam and it's only been a few days since I've installed it and ran them, but I haven't had issues with them specifically. The app is another story, but I cannot fault the dashcam for that.

I am a satisfied customer! Thank you Blackboxmycar.com for having offered the best deal I could find on the web at the time. I will keep monitoring your website for upcoming deals if I ever need anything else.

Hi James, thanks for the review! The DR900S-2CH is a great dashcam and we are happy you were able to take advantage of our Black Friday prices. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletters to receive updates on sales and deals!
