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.

Excellent Customer Service and Product! Would Definitely Recommend!

Katrina was very helpful when I walked into the store. She spent 5 minutes going through all the dash cams, answered my questions with exceptional product knowledge and recommended which model that I should consider based on my needs. I purchased one of the recommended units and scheduled a hardwire installation. The installation itself was smooth and the technician explained thoroughly on how to operate the unit with great detail. Lastly, they offered a large client lounge with free wifi and Netflix while waiting for the installation. I would definitely recommend BlackboxMyCar in the future. Good work guys!

Quality help

No matter when I’ve had a problem they’ve always been there for me - i would never go anywhere else

Hi Wayne, thanks for leaving a review! Come back anytime :)
Over 30 hours of battery power for my devices!

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.
Amazing combo.

Hi Lauren, awesome review - thanks for leaving one! Your setup sounds great. Don't hesitate to contact us at anytime if you need help.
Every car should have one!

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.

Hi Lauren, love the combination and the joy you're getting out of your BlackVue dash cam. We absolutely love hearing from customers like you who have had such great success with a dash cam. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything else in the future!
Great cam for a great price

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.

Provides Pece of Mind

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.

Pros:
- 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

Cons:
- 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

Hi Ana, thank you for leaving a detailed review! We're glad to hear that you were able to install the dash cam yourself through our resources. Your detailed feedback is extremely valuable, and we will pass it along to BlackVue as feedback for them for the future. Come back anytime!

I am very happy with blackboxmycar, good service and fast delivery. I would recommend to someone else to buy from blackbocmycar

Hi Horace, thanks for leaving a review!
Works just as intended.

USB Cable that came with original dash cam was doa, this works perfectly fine as a replacement.

Hi Ankhang, thanks for leaving a review!
Quality at Great Value

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.

Hi Dan, thanks for leaving a review! Murphy is delighted to hear your compliments. We will take your feedback to our manufacturers for you, but in the future, do let us know if your cable clips aren't working and we will send more out to you.
unlock the power of the cam

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.

Hi Raz, thanks for leaving a review! We did offer an OBD version of the Power Magic Pro called the Power Magic EZ before. However, there were some compatibility issues with it, and BlackVue has since discontinued the product. The Power Magic Pro is the best option thus far for customers!
this is awesome product

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 .

Hi Robert, thanks for leaving a review! Glad to hear that the IROAD OBD-II Cable is exactly what you needed, and it saved you time!
Great camera system

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.

Hi Chris, thanks for leaving a review. We hear you regarding the audio - it is something that we have passed on to Thinkware, and hopefully, they will give us the option to turn it off in the future. Glad you were able to install your dash cam successfully!
easy as pie

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

Hi Stephen, hope you were watching one of our videos, and glad you found the information you needed ;) Let us know if you need any help.
