this product is not very reliable per my experience
We expect the rest of the dash cams to be released within a few days!
The first round of Blackvue 400s has shipped! The rest will be arriving from Korea within the next few days and we'll ship them out as quickly as possible.
This is a rip even if the $198 price is reached. I bought this brand new from amazon for $160 a few months ago, but I did purchase the newer DR500 on massdrop for $239. Still it's a good camera and I have not had issues with it at all. I've had it running for about 6 months now and it's on all the time.
Anyone else taking into concern the heating issue with this particular unit?

@Andrew I've seen it tested at 60C and it worked fine. Massdrop is really good at handling warranty issues. If the unexpected happens they'll look after you. @Bert - You got REALLY lucky, the dealer would have taken a loss at that price. I've seen the wholesale figures from a group buy in another forum and it's above the $160 mark. @Jordan - Hmm lucky, I could never get the tape to come off nicely. Was the camera installed only briefly? My experience was 2 weeks after the initial installation - never the same afterwards.
I find the tape sticks very damn well so if you apply it lightly you can remove it and stick it on countless cars. Ive since sold my car and reused it on my new car. Not to mention I've also shifted it around many times to fit nicely up top and it doesn't let go. It's quite versatile.
Does this have the Power Magic Pro kit along with the camera?
Ryan
@Ryan, Power Magic Pro is available as a check out option.
Anyone know if there are any other mounts for this, like a suction cup instead of sticky tape? Was looking to get one for when I travel, so I can move it from rental car to rental car. Also, I don't seem to see a "what's in the box". The one on Amazon shows it comes with a 16gb SD card. Does this one have one, or need one?

Does the manufacturer make any at all? I couldn't seem to find anything, wasn't sure if I was looking it the right spot. The rotating ring looks like it might be tough to find a compatible third party mount.

The rotating mount is proprietary and short of buying multiple mounts / tape the DR400G is not the best product for multiple vehicles. Velcro works poorly as well, not enough strength and the video becomes shaky. I suppose you could duct tape the mount to your windshield but it ain't going to be pretty.
One community member reported that their SD card was empty when they received their Blackvue, i.e. the Pittasoft software wasn't installed on it. We cracked open a couple of our sample units and noticed the same. Looks like you need to use the card in the camera first, and the camera will automatically copy all of the program files onto the memory card. Any of you guys have similar experiences?
I got my Camera a couple days ago. Everything installed and worked great, but when I tried to upgrade the firmware which is posted on blackvue's website, it says invalid or mismatch model information. Has anyone tried to update their firmware on the camera? I got the firmware from this link here https://www.blackvue.com/en/contents/sub3.asp?mode=view&serboardsort=29&page=1&idx=870&search=&searchstr=
My pair of camera's and Power Mind Pro's arrived today, thanks! Can't wait to get them up and running.

Thanks for posting his Hasan!
NMR I guess that's the HDIi part haha
Is this the session 2 version?
How long does this take to install?
Mike
15-30 MINUTES or so to do it on your own, or you can pay a shop to do it for like $30 and they'll make it all nice and hide the wires and stuff.
Power Magic Pro isn't required. It's a connection cable and box that is used to protect your car battery from being drained too much if you leave your car parked for a very long time. If you don't have power magic pro, you want to make a habit of unplugging the camera if you're parking and not using the car for a very long time (say 4-5 days).
What is Power Magic Pro? Is it a necessary component?
Two more to go until the final drop!
I got one during the last group buy but took nearly one month to receive it. So far so good.
Does this one come with a memory card?
Gary
@Gary I bought one for my husband during the last group buy, it comes with the 16gb micro sd.
How does the warranty work and all that stuff ? who would be supporting the camera once bought ? and what is the turn around time from the time the group buy closes to shipping out the camera ?

How long is the warranty ? Does the company not honor warranty if not bought directly through them ?
Mike
The warranty is 1 year. We work directly with Pittasoft- so the warranty is valid when purchased through us. If anything goes wrong you will not need to ship it back to Korea etc.
Hey, what's the point of these dashcam's? Why not just use a GoPro Hero or something like that?

Can i use this on my bicycle?
steve
No, the blackvue needs to be plugged into the car to get power to run.
