Blackvue DR650GW 2CH Dash Camera Review – 2016 Cloud Edition

Blackvue DR650GW 2CH Dash Camera Review – 2016 Cloud Edition

Hey, it’s Andrew with Car Cam Central. Today, we’re looking at Blackvue DR650GW 2 Channel dash camera. We’re going to be seeing if it’s worth $350 of your hard-earned money Breaking it down, it’s a two channel
system which means there’s a front camera and a rear camera. We’re also reviewing the optional infrared camera which captures what’s happening inside your vehicle This camera was released in late 2014 but has been recently updated with Blackvue’s cloud software which allows your camera to connect to the internet and
send things like videos GPS location to your smartphone. We’ll talk about that later Before getting into the details if you’re in a rush you can
go right into the summary. There’s also a written review which has raw videos
and additional information. Links above and in the description. Looking at the camera itself Blackvue has been using a cylindrical shaped camera since 2011.
Fast forward to today the DR650GW is larger than earlier cameras as it needs
additional space for WiFi and dual camera processing. The materials have
also been changed to be more discreet compared to previous versions the camera
and mount is now molded in a black plastic. The previous chrome lens has
also been painted a black while keeping a subtle blue stripe for style. I like the
fact that it looks nothing like a regular camera. Most people mistaken it for an
air freshener. It also has a noLCD screen. To control your device you must
either use a desktop computer or an Android iOS smartphone. Moving to one side of the camera we’ll find the input ports including micro sd, power and the coaxial
connection for the rearview camera. On the other side you find the proximity
sensor which activate emergency recording on the camera. It’s hidden
behind an elegant sheet of plastic. To my knowledge Blackvue is the only company
which has this feature. In the middle there’s a small cut out for the speaker.
Beside it, there’s two LEDs which indicate recording status and GPS. On the front is
a larger security LED which is supposed to scare away potential vandals but
nobody thinks it’s effective except in getting your items stolen. For the rear camera it’s much smaller
than the main body. It has an LED light facing inside your vehicle. It turns on
when the camera is successfully recording. If you look at the IR version it adds
infrared lights on both sides of the camera. There’s also a light sensor which
turns on the infrared lights when it’s dark. I would say all three cameras were
well made. It also looks pretty cool. Blackvue is often installed on high-end
vehicles because it fits in better with the decor compared to the pedestrian and
brutalistic designs from other companies. Moving to packaging Blackvue has had a fresh design for each version of their camera. With the 650GW it’s
packaged in a double box. The outer shell adds country-specific information and
serves as protection for the thicker and plainer inner box. Once you lift the lid
you expose the front and rear cameras. I enjoyed the presentation as it provides a
striking first glimpse at the cameras They are also securely held during
shipping Below you’ll find a box with the
acessories. Inside there’s a power cable which is especially long at 12 and a half feet which allows for installation in larger vehicles. There are also a few extra
accessories which include clips to secure wiring, microSD reader and one set
of mounting pads. On the front camera Blackvue added a removable lens protector
which is quite handy during installation or transportation to make sure it
remains in good condition Once unpackaged you probably want to setup your camera. Now it’ll work right out of the box, but there are a few settings we
recommend you change. We wrote up a few suggestions on our written review As mentioned before you will have to use your PC or smartphone app to change the settings. Starting with the desktop
software you can install it directly from the SD card that’s included. You can use
the card reader which comes with your camera. The DR650GW will also loads the
software onto any card it formats by simply holding the wifi button for 10 seconds.
on that card Formatting the SD card.
Please do not turn off the power. I was pleasantly impressed as most
companies require you to find and download their software. Once installed
the desktop software acts both as a video player and to modify settings on the
camera. I thought it was well designed. Moving into the settings area most aspects of the camera are customizable You can change the different alerts, LEDs wifi settings and more The smartphone app is more complicated but most people shouldn’t have a problem. The wifi mode allows you to
change settings, view and download videos once you connect to your cameras network. Once inside the starting screen shows your saved videos. Locked files display a
thumbnail so you can easily find important videos where they were
manually saved or triggered by the g-sensor. You can watch videos using the
built in player. As well you can download videos to your smartphone but it was rather slow taking around 25 seconds to transfer. What’s great is while viewing
videos or downloading files, your camera will continue to record. This is quite a
technical achievement as many wifi cameras require recording to be
disabled first. This could come in handy after an accident as you can keep your
camera rolling while quietly reviewing what happened. You can also change any of the
camera settings. You have access to every option including resolution audible notifications and more. Let’s talk about the cloud which is the other feature found in the app. It allows you to remotely connect to the camera over the internet. This gives you additional features such
as live GPS tracking, live video view and video playback. We feel for most
users it’s not very useful since it relies on internet access, if you don’t
have wifi where you park you will need a mobile hotspot In North America this can get expensive.
In Europe and other locations with cheaper data plans this can be more
reasonable. As well you need to hardwire to your camera and hotspot which means connecting directly to the camera’s battery, most likely through the fusebox. There are
some solutions such as the Power Magic Pro which prevents your battery from
being drained. but will requires additional time and knowledge to install. Speaking to other users we know the difficulty of installing and setting
up the cloud limits its appeal. So we’ll make a video in the future with more details.
If you are interested there are some resources that we link to
in the description below. Once setup we installed our camera. Compared to single dash cameras the DR650 was more difficult because of the rear camera.
While you don’t need tools, you need to hide your wiring if you don’t want
passengers to trip or damage your cables. Each car’s a little different but for
most you can slip it into the headliner and snake it around to your trunk. This added
an extra twenty minutes for me but it wasn’t too complicated. The benefits of Blackvue’s dual camera
system compared to buying two individual cameras is the longer twenty-foot
coaxial cable which increases compatibility in trucks and vans. As well the rear camera is smaller than most
dash camera so it doesn’t obstruct you vision. I had a hatchback which makes it a bit more difficult as you have to account for the moving door. I ended up with an
exposed loop of wire because I didn’t want to tear apart my trunk to hide everything.
Aside from cabling everything else was simple. The front, rear and IR camera
mounts are fixed in place using 3m tape Just peel and press. The mounts quick
release system requires just a push of a button to remove and a simple press to replace. The IR camera was installed beneath the
rear view mirror but you can put it anywhere that has a clear view of the
passenger cabin. BlackboxMyCar has an optional 2 foot cable which makes
installation easier. Everything was quickly cleaned up
leaving your car looking tidy. Otherwise you have to use the twenty foot cable and
hide everything in your headliner. Once finished we adjusted all the cameras.
With the twist the camera is easily turned and is held securely by either
fiction on the smaller cameras or the tongue and groove system on the front
camera. In general I feel most users shouldn’t have any difficulties installing
a camera. It just takes a little more time and preparation. Next we looked at
how easy it is to use the DR650GW on a day-to-day basis. Like most dash
cameras when it receives power it will automatically turn on and start
recording. When it loses power it’ll save and turn off. Unfortunately the startup
time was extremely long at 35 seconds While the DR650 is a complicated device
it takes three to four times as long as other cameras. We’re often well on our way
before the camera turned on. The start-up and failure notifications are
much better and will help you keep your camera running. For example when the
camera starts recording it will give you a rather long message. Blackvue for your safe driving…starting normal recording. This length can be
reduced or completely removed in the settings if you find it irritating. For
myself and other drivers we find this message comforting. You subconsciously know that your camera is working. When there is a problem, for example the sdcard has failed, it will continue to pester you with a message until you stop and fix
the issue. Please check the SDcard. So contrast this experience with most
cameras on the market First there’s no spoken messages. It
just beeps and chimes. When your camera starts up you’ll hear a friendly jingle
even if there is a problem. When there is an issue very few cameras have an alarm. Instead you’ll get a warning message. On most cameras this quickly disappears.
Most likely you’ll carry on driving and not notice there’s a problem. If you get
into an accident or capture something interesting only then will you realize
your camera stopped working but it’s too late. We feel audible notifications are one of the most important features on a dash cam and Blackvue has been doing a great job with the DR650 and all the model since 2012 when we first reviewed the DR400-G. However if you don’t like notifications this camera may not be for
you. The main LEDs are rather small and don’t use a traditional colour code. As
well, many users like that the camera can be hidden behind your rearview mirror,
which will also hide the LED lights. You would either have to crank your head
under the mirror or install it so the cameras is visible. There is one more LED
light found on the rear camera. It glows white when recording and is a good
brightness day and night. There’s no setting to turn this off, you’ll have to put tape on it if you don’t like it Moving on let’s talk about the emergency
record button. Most people use it to lock accident footage or to save an
interesting scene for later. On most cameras this is a button. Blackvue uses a proximity sensor similar to your smartphone. Putting your hand close to
the sensor will save the prior five seconds and the following 55 seconds of
video from being overwritten. Originally this button controlled the
microphone but by popular demand it was switched over to the emergency record . This isn’t mentioned in your manual or online as it’s a recent change. Looking at video quality the Blackvue DR650 was tested side by side against a few cameras. One was
the A118-C. It’s our recommendation for a budget all-around
camera. Another was the Dome D201 which has some of the best video quality on
the market for only $100. Looking at the video specs the front camera records at
1080p at 30 frames a second. Moving to the rear camera it records at a lower 720p at 30 frames a second. I was fairly disappointed with the quality. At $350 I
was hoping for better sharpness and dynamic range but sadly this wasn’t the
case. During the day, image quality is good. You will miss out on some finer details
such as road markings. I did find that legibility on license plates was reduced
on fast-moving objects. Here you can see it’s much more difficult to read this
plate. This is because the bit rate is much lower than most cameras. The cloud
edition is 6 megabits per second for the front camera which is much less than 15
to 20 on most single lens dash cameras. This can result in severe pixelation when the
scene changes rapidly. At night there’s a much bigger reduction in quality. The
DR650GW missed capturing license plates where cheaper cameras had no
problems. In this case, passing under a tunnel it’s unreadable compared to the $80
A118-C. As well the reduced bit rate can warp the letters. In this video
you can see the D becoming a B which could cause trouble if you need to
identify a vehicle. On the plus side this camera uses a Sony Exmor sensor which is
known for light sensitivity. You pick up more of the surroundings especially in less
lit environments compared to cheaper cameras. In this comparison against the
A118-C you can clearly see the pedestrian crossing the street. If you
turn to the A118-C you won’t see them until the very last minute. If you
end up in an accident you can capture what happened in the moments before. Maybe they intentionally threw themselves
onto your vehicle. If you can’t see what happened you can’t prove your side of the
story. Let’s move on to the rear camera. We compared it against the Transcend 200
which is our budget heat resistant camera recommendation. While we consider the video quality to be fair even bad at night it still does much better
than the DR650’s rear camera. During the day the rear camera is rather
grainy and not very sharp. Even while it’s bright outside you’ll have difficulty picking up license
plates while moving. In comparison, the Transcend has much better clarity and
sharpness. You can easily read passing vehicle license plates. At night
quality is even worse. Looking around the dynamic ranges is low which washes out part of the scene such as the gas station. Still this poor video quality isn’t a problem the main camera handles liability. The
rear camera adds context. Someone who was aggressively tailgating or
swerving or any other actions before an accident you’ll have additional evidence
that their actions affected your driving. The infrared camera is similar
to the rear view camera except the IR filter has been removed which allows it
to pick up invisible infrared light projected by the camera. During the day
this produces a rather unflattering pink tinted image and night you get an eerie
glow but you can clearly see everyone inside. So this would be a good feature
for taxi, uber, and lyft drivers who may need footage of their passengers for assaults, fair disputes, and other complaints. Be sure to follow your local laws on privacy. However the camera may be too expensive
for most drivers as it adds another $100-150 onto an already expensive
camera. We’ll look at the budget options at a future date. In general, video quality could be better but
considering its processing two video feeds and has to leave processing power to
simultaneously send live videos onto the cloud or WiFi, I think Blackvue has done a
good job in getting everything to work at a reasonable price. If you’re
interested in more you can download screenshots and raw videos from our website OK, so moving on I want to talk about parked recording. This is a special setting which keeps the camera running but only
writes the video to the memory card when movement is detected or a shock is felt
by the g-sensor. In cheaper cameras you have to manually enable this feature through
the menu. It’s a pain in the butt and if you forgot to turn it off, you can lose footage
while driving. It’s much easier on the DR650GW as it can detect if you haven’t moved using the GPS and g-sensor and automatically enable parked recording. Blackvue did a good job it would consistently activate when major objects
such as people or vehicles came into view. As well, keeping the g-sensor on the most sensitive setting it would detect even a slight bump. My only concern is the lower 60°C 140°F operational limit. More heat resisting cameras are rated at
a higher 70°C, 158°F. If you live somewhere very hot, it’s not recommended you use this camera while parked. Even though it uses capacitors which increase reliability under hotter weather. Since we covered a lot of different issues, here’s a summary of the pros and cons on
the Blackvue DR650GW-2CH. Here’s what good: The body is compact, discreet and robust.
The style fits in with many high-end vehicles. It has excellent spoken
notifications which alert you to problems and keep your camera working. Please check the SD card. It’s a great choice for parked recording as motion detection is automatically activated by
detecting movement using the GPS and g-sensor When formatting, the camera
automatically loads the PC playback and settings program onto your SD card. The desktop and smartphone apps are well designed and easy to use You can download, view saved videos, and see a live feed while continuing to record on the camera. It has premium packaging. It
looks good and securely holds your cameras. It’s easy to activate emergency
recording by waving your hand at the proximity sensor The long power and coaxial cables increase installation compatibility in larger vehicles and a quick release mount makes removing and installing the camera easy Now for a couple items which may cause problems. It has generally good reliability but the
lower 60°C 140°F operating temperature limit may be a problem for parked recording in hotter environments The optional IR module
is useful for taxi drivers but the final cost may be too expensive and it also
requires a smartphone or computer to change settings and view videos So now for the bad The video quality is relatively poor for the price. Day quality is good but
moving objects decrease legibility. At night sharpness is lower, license plates
are harder to read but overall light sensitivity is quite good The cloud features such as viewing
videos over the internet and live video feed don’t provide enough benefits to most
consumers relative to the cost and difficulty of installation. It has a long start-up time at 37 seconds nearly four times longer than other cameras You also can rotate the camera to face the side windows which is helpful when
recording police encounters. Installation time and difficulty is increased to connect the rearview camera. If you’re looking for a premium camera the DR650GW two channel edition will be one of our recommendations. We would like the
video quality to be better but for the price and features we think Blackvue
has done a great job. For other recommendations see our website. As part of our ethical disclosures we purchased these cameras from BlackboxMyCar at a
discount. I rarely recommend retailers but if you live in Canada or United
States I would recommend you buy from BlackboxMyCar. I’ve spoken to
the owner, Alex since 2013 and I think he’s done a great job. He’s been in the
game for a while he has his own YouTube video channel that produces some really good content. Now with that, that’s the
end of this review if you liked it please give it a thumbs up if you have
questions or suggestions feel free to leave it in the comments below Thank you and see ya!

  1. " you can rotate camera to face side windows…."
    but your video shows him rotating it to face backward , not side ? ?

  2. I need help deciding. I've had my eye on this one. I like the features. Is this the best one? I want the best of the best with dual cams. thanks. Or is there a similar one with better video quality?

  3. Nice review and I agree with just about everything you said. Wish bitrate was higher for better quality recording. Thumbs up!

  4. I have some questions. 1. How long ( in terms of hours) for the parking mode recording time? I understand it is very depending on your battery level, but in general, how many hours? and 2. how the size of the SD card they support 256GB? if the large data volume SD size is not supported, it may not be very useful. 3. How the parking mode by motion function? is the camera can be automatically activated if it detect some motions? the motion means a "real solid motion on the vehicles by a hit" or a "camera build-in motion detection" function by detecting any image movement in front of the camera? Any overheat report (or burning) on this camera in summer time for on-street parking? thanks a lot.

  5. Running the wires in my 2011 STI was easy and looked very neat and well hidden. Only obvious wiring was at rear view mirror location. I installed the power magic pro too. Configuration of the camera took as long as installation. I like the BlackVue DR650s.

  6. i also downgraded from version 2.001 cloud to 1.009 but later again tot the cloud version 2.007 because the bitrate went up for both cameras.

  7. Hi, I have the DR650GW-2CH camera but I do not have the cloud code. How can I choose the number of the cloud.
    Please help..

  8. Great review! Had this model for about eight months:
    Pro's:Low profile size Well made? Installation kit wiring worked great (plenty of wire) even in my Tahoe.
    Con's:Be careful what you wish for – small size = no LCD.  Gets hot and doesn't need Texas to do it.  Coaxial cable = 500% horrid idea….way to fragile for a lot of installations, as well as installation or removal of camera from mount – good luck with that more than a couple of times.  WIFI not dependable.Earlier models are not flashed for cloud app. You "might" be able to send it in for a updated flash.  The company will have to cross reference camera info to see.  The audio sucks after about six weeks of use. Sometimes clear and sometimes rararararara…what?  The instructions have the depth equal to a post-it note's thickness – I lived in Korea for many years and most speak better English than I ever will –  Blackvue, you can do way better at articulating information – own your product!
    My two cent – by the way I purchased two Lukas 9750s –  not for stealth, but LCD, OBDII, lens filters, clear audio (if you like that), intuitive GUI, on board power monitor, free polo shirt…..the list goes on. Oh, and a very durable micro usb cable for rear camera installation.

  9. The part about image quality is confusing because you mention the bitrate is 6Mbps and then in another review of the Thinkware camera you mentioned there is a firmware update so the bitrate is higher. The manual shows that the bitrate goes up to 10Mbps. Maybe this review should have a footnote to update information about the image quality. The image quality is a very important deciding factor. I was almost going to avoid buying this dash cam until I discovered that the bit rate is higher, now it's my top choice to buy.

  10. well look cools and i want to by this product. while i search this product form online i got "" link and ready to place order but like your video show the cable (coaxial black), i could not find in the description there. May i know if you know where to by that cable. This cable seems to be so nice and handy for us who down want to gear up the technical expertise of Waring.

    hope your reply could help me to get the cable and camera soon to my car. Thanks for your video.

  11. car cam central what is the best dashcam available? I've got a mivue one but it's no good. which one would you recommend despite the cost?

  12. Can not be rotated for "police encounters" otherwise a very accurate and good review. I can only agree with you that for the price, the picture quality is not as good as expected. Also, the viewer for your PC is not working very well with big displays since it can not be scaled properly. On my 4k display it is very hard to read the information on the viewer.
    PLEASE NOTE that the company (pittasoft) want you do buy their memory card for using with the camera. I have used other cards and they frequently fail to work with the camera. Pittasoft says it is because of bad quality cards, but I find that hard to believe. Anybody who have answers to that problem, feel free to holler at me.

  13. See I want dual channel for both of my vehicles.. but the thinkware 770 would cost me almost a grand… what do you think about the new blackvue dr470 2ch? I really want something with parking mode… or would a dual A119s system be better? (But then I loose my parking modes) thanks for the awesome videos you do!

  14. I thought it was a great idea to have one, (Blackvue DR650-2CH – I love the look and idea but been paying a hefty price on micro sd cards, coming around three years now and buying about 6 to 7 64gb Delkin and Sandisk ultra class 10… I wouldn't recommend anyone paying so much for technology that just isn't stable. Customer service provide no help, and stops responding. Took my money and ran…

  15. I just installed this camera on my car. Do you know if you can deactivate the rear camera when using parking mode? Thanks!

  16. Thanks buddy for best reviews , Can you or anyone suggest a dual lens cam with night vision for Uber / Taxi. I am really struggling to find one with wifi and night vision. .

  17. Cool product, I think. I would like to find dash cam with rear looking camera that is wireless … it will happen. thanks for a great review. Nice job.

  18. I looked at the link you have above, to read more on this product. I had read a review on Amazon that stated that Blackvue requires you to share your data with them, or you won't be able to use their app. With no way to decline to share. Not being able to use the app, if you choose not to share your data, renders this product useless. But not only do they want your data, they state that they will be sharing this information as well (albeit anonymously). If this is how Blackvue's app really functions, then shame on you for missing such an obvious point of discussion. Please consider making a thorough video review of their software. Including the complete installation and registration process. This time though, take off the gloves.

  19. How easy are the front and rear cameras to remove from your car? i.e. I park in an unsafe area and I don't want my cameras stolen from my car. If this is the most important factor for me, which is preferable – this model or the Thinkware 770? Please help.

  20. im running my Dr650GW-2CH with the latest firmware v1.006 when trying to live view the cameras on the iOS app the camera seems to be reversed. anyone experiencing the same problem?

  21. don't get me wrong. Your review is well made and was professionally presented but…. when you make such a presentation and not talk about specific technical aspects and cons about this particular product i can't help it but not buy into all the commercial talk….

    one quick search on Amazon reviews from customers who bought this item can say alot about the company and it's products.

    oh well nobody is perfect i guess …

  22. This is a great review!
    You mentioned in your video that one of the cons is that it does not have a swivel camera. what would be a good dual channel dash cam with such a feature?

  23. I've been using a Blackvue DR500GW-HD for 4 years now and I was wondering if they improved the Wi-Fi on the DR650?
    Connecting my phone to the Wi-Fi and trying to view recordings was a horrible buffering experience.
    Slow doesn't describe it at all. Even downloading to the phone's storage was slow. It would take 2 minutes to download a 1 minute file.

  24. I got DR 3500-FHD and some times it works, but most of the time, it say "check the sd card" and after that, the cam stop, that is shit.

  25. DO you have a specific model number on blackboxmycar's webpage for the additional 2 ft. cable you speak of at 7:39 in the video?

  26. How was with the camera that was installed on the "rear view mirror"? Do you have a demo on the view captured from that angle (I was hit by a car on the left rear side of my car)? I wonder if placing the camera on the "rear view mirror" can capture that angle. Also, does the vibration in the car (when mounting the camera on the "rear view mirror") cause any problem w/ the quality of the video? Was the adhesive strong enough to stay on the "rear view mirror"? Please advise.

  27. Top presentation unbiased & well thought out a review to be taken seriously for any prospective purchace. Many thanks to the team.

  28. Great Review. Not sure if this would work well in Phoenix AZ especially in the summer when it's regularly over 100F outside and gets much hotter than that inside your car when parked

  29. So, do you have all 3 hooked up at once? The front, rear and IR? I have the DR750S-2CH with the Cellink Battery backup. I have a Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic Convertible and i want to have coverage of the interior in parking mode, but still have good coverage of rear traffic when the top is up and the rear window is fairly small. So I am planning on adding a 3rd camera.

  30. Good video. I just placed an order for the DR750GW model with for my Tesla S P85D after watching your video. It sounds like it will be even better than the 650.

  31. Thanks for the review, it was helpful. Only one problem is you covered the max temp, but didnt mention the minimum temp.

  32. One question for you regarding rear camera – I noticed you had a shorter coax cable. Is it possible to simply use that and mount the rear cam to the bottom of the rear mirror or something? rather than fiddle with wiring all the way to the back of the vehicle?

  33. I went through 3 other expensive cameras before finding the A118. I got the Novatek 96650 AR0330 6G 5.0MP model. One for rear and front. The quality looks just like your video example. So, So clear. No jittering or motion blur when turning. The other ones would skip frames and were bad at night. Both cameras were $123 I would never pay these over priced thieves. A118 has gps, motion trigger, looping, GPS and a emergency record button. It also has video input and video output. I have my cameras plugged into A/V wireless sender. (wireless transmitter that sends the video when parked in my driveway to my computer inside the house. So I can record and watch live)
    A/V Units:
    Cord from camera to A/V:
    Cord to A/V to computer:
    Just want to mention that in your video you said the A118 couldn't see the pedestrian. 12:40 You should know that the A118 has light adjustments in the settings for night. It can be set to see anything at night.

  34. Thanks for the review! i'm intended to buy such 2 ch cam, but i want to ask. Is something more better came out in 2018 ? I mean in terms of quality and temperature. I live on south of Ukraine and summers are hot here. So i dont wanna loose important moments because of overheated cams.

  35. so I understand this correctly… that you can rotate the front camera from facing the road to facing the interior of the vehicle? I want this feature so that if I get pulled over I can record the police officer and myself. Thank you.

  36. I am looking for a front and rear dash cam with 60 FPS and with build in Wifi. I don't want an extra monthly bill for the cloud. This is why I would like a dash cam with build in Wifi so that I can monitor my car from any where from my smart phone.

  37. I have this dash cam installed in my car a year ago and works perfectly w/out any issues, i noticed just a week ago my rear camera is not working at all, it says check the connection of the selected camera, after checking it the connection are okay. Is anyone knows the possible problem of my rear camera…… Thank you!

  38. Amazing review 🙂 I have SJCAM SJ5000X Elite for motorcycle riding and I want something for a car and this is interesting but expensive. Perharps I will buy XiaoYi Yi Dash Camera

  39. Is possible to install and use the 2 cameras in reverses (switched) locations?

    For example, I want to install the reverse camera in the front because it is smaller. It seems to me, because it is smaller I can conceal it better. Thus, it may deter someone seeing it and trying to steal it when my car is parked.

  40. Great review, this dash cam seemed to be exactly what I wanted, but the poor video quality compared to cheaper cameras is a deal breaker though.

  41. Inconspicuous design means folk more often will hit and run. Why have the inconvenience of tracking down the owner even with video proof. If third parties can see you are recording they are more likely to be more careful wether parked or not? I could be wrong of course but prevention over cure.

  42. Great great cameras but why when we buy these we realise there is also all these extra bits you need , you need extra battery packs , bigger memory cards , wifi hotspot subscriptions to run cloud and extra battery packs etc…..etc…. I’m up to over $1,000 so far with all the crap I thought was going to be an initial price of $400 it’s fairly ridiculous really these systems are the best however holy fucking shit it gets super expensive when you realise the true cost to get all functions !!! It’s a bit of a joke then I have to pay for full comprehensive insurance in Sydney Australia at $1800 a year mainly because I modified my car legally !! My car cost 5 years ago well tuned a 22 year old car $1,500 I’m a mechanic so I know how to fix all these cars and keep them on the road !! However when does it all end all this cost to combat all the low life scum in society !!
