From Kyle Stokley, Auto Community: "BlackVue is one of the premier dash cam brands with a history of support and quality (important for dash cams as reliability is critical). Unlike other manufacturers, BlackVue has an easy-to-use app for both mobile and desktop (most dash cam apps stink). The DR650S-2CH in particular has a two-channel system, HD recording, adjustable alerts and sensitivities, and support for a 128gb SD card (most dash cams are missing some of these features). It’s for those reasons I went with BlackVue. I’ve been running a DR650 in my car for almost 2 years now and couldn’t imagine driving without it."
The BlackVue DR650S Dash Camera captures high-quality footage of everything you see on the road. It’s designed to help you document driving accidents, parking accidents, hit and runs, insurance fraud, and other scenarios so that everyone is held accountable for their actions. It features 360-degree rotation, built-in WiFi connectivity, GPS, and a low-profile design to act as your witness for any unexpected event you encounter while at the wheel. The accompanying app allows you to easily sort, play, and save your captured video right from your smartphone.
Note: At checkout, you may add-on the Power Magic Pro for an additional (+ $25).
Both the front and rear facing cameras on the BlackVue DR650S exhibit exceptional picture quality: The front shoots in full 1080p HD, while the rear shoots 720p HD. Both operate simultaneously and are difficult to see from the outside to prevent theft. In this version, the rear camera can now be turned on and off, and it has 180-degree image rotation and security LEDs. Plus, you can monitor your vehicle when it’s parked (within WiFi range). In Parking Mode, the BlackVue will start recording when the G-sensor registers an impact exceeding your set limit—and it even gives you a voice notification alerting you when it switches. The device also supports up to a 128GB microSD card for so you won’t have to constantly delete video to clear up space.
With BlackVue’s new Over the Cloud feature, you can now watch you DR650S’s video feed from anywhere in the world. No longer just a WiFi transmitter, the WiFi module has been upgraded to function as both a transmitter and receiver. Simply connect the DR650S to a WiFi hotspot and you can view the feed on your smartphone through BlackVue’s app. (Requires firmware update). This version also allows users to record in 1-, 2-, and 3-minute increments.
The Power Magic Pro allows you to monitor your parked vehicle at all times, so you won’t drain your car battery. In Parking Mode, the BlackVue will start recording when the G-sensor registers an impact exceeding your set limit, letting you capture every hit-and-run without having to sort through days of video.
