Am I missing something? What is the difference between this and the one listed below? Other than $20. Does MassDrop offer a try it for 30 days program and lifetime tech support? https://www.rearviewsafety.com/blackvue-dr650s-2ch-2-channel-dash-camera-wifi-dr650s-2ch.html
I have had nothing but bad luck with this cam. Unless it’s on 24/7 power it will sometimes turn on and sometimes nothing. I was excited for it with all the features, but with it only working half the time I can’t even enjoy them. I don’t feel I can trust this car to be there when I need it. Unfortunately I installed it too long after my purchase to return it
Repeated "Check SD Card" Errors with all 3 Dashcams I own all using new 128GB Cards I have had zero problems with my 3 cameras using the 16GB Micro SD Cards that came with the units when I purchased them. A few months ago I bought 128GB Cards to give me more recording history in case there is a time delay in turning off the camera after an accident and I have had nothing but problems. This is with all 3 dashcams. I am on the latest firmware 1.009. This is a shout out to determine who else is having or not having this problem with 128GB cards and resolving this once and for all so I can rely on these cameras to be recording properly when an accident happens.
I've submitted a request for a drop for the Blackvue DR750-2CH. That's their newest one. Please do a drop for the DR750.
What just happened? Why did the drop end? It said it had 6 days left and I didn't see a limit on the orders! I was just about to buy it!

Unfortunately we had to end the drop early due to an unforeseen issue with the availability. Please check back next week, we will be dropping something you may be interested in.
Is this the one with the proximity sensor protecting event videos, or the one where the proximity sensor turn audio on/off?
The cam and software are big letdowns. I wish I would have spent the money on a different product. The video is very noisy. Definitely not HD quality. All of Pittasoft software is tragic. So bad it make me think PITTAsoft means: Pain In TheThe Ass Software (yes with the stutter - just like the videos it produces). Version 2x of the android app is an exercise in frustration with so many connectivity issues and a real lack of useful functionality. The overall necessity of having a cloud account to do simple things like changing settings via the app is ridiculous. The fallback of using the 'legacy' app is a no-go as the legacy is will not work with the DR650s firmware - it probably would but the app checks firmware versions and gives you an F.U. dialog saying you have to use the new crappy app. Giving up on the mobile app and sneaker netting a sd card around is lame. Come on. The thing has a wifi connection, it runs linux. You can easily pull files of of the device using http. But you have to hand carry the sd card to your pc to use the viewer? WTF? The windows viewer is a chaotic mishmash of poor UI design that seems straight out of the early 90s. Gosh, the thing is running linux but operates and feels like a really bad custom embedded solution. Blackvue should open source the build and let the community fix all the bad. Yeah, I should have done some research - my bad....
So what do we do with warranty? Got the camera over a year ago.
It is over 10 days past the expected shipping date of this drop. Many people have asked Massdrop for some kind of update. WIf customer support exists, then why are they not responding to the many WHEN WILL IT SHIP queries? Almost any word or explanation from customer support is better than hearing noting!
C'mon Bekah.M you chimed in so we know someone there reads these comments, why isn't anyone responding to the basic question of when will it ship? There must be some explanation, afterall, Massdrop expected to ship by then.
On 7/31/17 I received the following email from Massdrop: Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group’s order with the vendor for the BlackVue DR650S-2CH Dash Camera and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment. As soon as your order has been dropped off with the courier, we will email you tracking information. Please allow 1-2 days after tracking is received for the package to be recorded in the courier’s system. The current estimated shipping date is 8/18. We will update the group via email if the expected ship date is moved. If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (http://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
So where is the love Massdrop???
k.Joe
Sheesh, wouldn't you know it, just a few minutes after I post my comment, guess what shows up in my email? MY ITEM HAS SHIPPED and I have a tracking number!!! WOOHOO!!!
Is this typical of no one answering any questions - Does Massdrop have any customer support???????????????
Jdouget
Hey @Jdouget - We definitely have support! I just looked over your account but I don't see any support tickets being submitted. Have you already tried submitting a request to us? Either way, can you please try submitting a request through your transactions page (https://www.massdrop.com/transactions)
You should receive an automated email afterwards stating that the request was received. If not, please let me know and I can try to help troubleshoot from here! :)
So when is this shipping? Can we get an update?
So... When is this shipping?
miznitic
Just got my shipping notification.
Would it be possible to request a drop for the newly released DR750S-2CH
I purchased this camera last year & it malfunctioned within a couple of months. I have had several attempts to get a replacement shipped, however the incorrect item was shipped 3 times in a row. Somehow the ID numbers on the dash cam & Power Magic Pro have been stuffed up, so instead of receiving the replacement dash cam, I kept receiving a new Power Magic Pro instead. Several months on & still haven't received a replacement dash cam. So don't be surprised if you don't get the dash cam in the package.
What is shipping status?
Mscat
Yeah, I received notice that my dash cam has shipped.
Are we still on track for shipment on 8/18?

Are we stil on track for ANY shipment this year?
yummysteak
no answer....
Just installed this camera. Being it my first ever dash cam, it was an arduous process for me.
Pertaining to Power Magic Pro (PMP) buyers only...
If you're a beginner, or rather, for those whose cars have AMP Low Profile fuse, it might be a good idea to buy a fuse tap, because my PMP didn't come with them. These saved me a whole lot of trouble.
Other than that, it's working beautifully and the video quality is best I've ever seen (compared to the older family car dash cam, which was 720p).
Australia isn't a shipping option??
Leadfoot
No it isn't plus, why would you buy from US? I heard that in australia you get a 2 year warranty and they only cost a little more for local support.
Hello, what is the shipping cost to Boston, MA?

Hi BlueCrowned, thanks for your response. Do you mean a flat $8.25 or 8.25% of the cost of the product?
Mscat
You can see your total cost if you click Join Drop, and select your destination. You will not be required to enter any payment info to see your cost. This applies to any drop on the site and allows you to see total price for various options.
Does this come with the hardwiring kit?
parkjay
Only if you order it with the kit
Not sure of who decides on the MSRP. Here in Canada you can find them on Amazon .ca for 375 canadian. So if you convert that to USD its about 326. i guess you do save a little

MSRP Doesn't mean "Price it costs on Amazon," It's the manufacturer's suggested retail price . If retailers want to sell for less than that they can, doesn't mean the MSRP is incorrect
mathees
I never suggested otherwise. Sorry for the confusion!
Beware! This is junk. Got mine in January and it is crap. After it started to get hot in Texas the camera constantly fails and reboots over and over. Customer support said to format the card and load the new updates. It still fails all day long. I sent them the files from the card and they are saying the card is at fault, it's the card that came with the camera! I have some kind of vapor on my windshield near the camera like it vented a gas. Do not waste your money on this over priced junk!
learfxr
Its likely the memory card that failing and not the camera.
learfxr
Did you consider the possibility that they might be right ? I mean did you even try changing the memory card ? Of course if its the included card that's faulty then they should either refund the cards worth or send you a new one, or actually if I were you I'd send them the bill for the replacement card, but you're going to feel silly if you find out that it really is the card that's faulty which can happen and is definitely not BlackVues fault (I'm pretty sure they don't make the SD Cards).
I mean I recently acquired a Synology NAS that came with a faulty WD Hard-drive, wich I of course sent back and got a replacement which was also Faulty !!! So I finally had to get in touch with WD directly who sent me yet another replacement and all is good now, but I'm definitely never buying a WD hard-drive again (and these were the Red, supposedly special NAS high reliability HD, sure didn't seem reliable to me).
Anyway the point is that the NAS itself works fine and I'm definitely not blaming Synology for WD's shitty drives.

Hi everyone, new to Massdrop and dashcams and had a few questions. I've tried researching on my own, but was wondering if anyone happens to know:
- Will this system let you turn off both the rear and forward facing cameras with just one button on the front camera, without having to unplug them ? Reason I ask if I would often have to turn off a dashcam, and my charger area is inside my console and is a next of USB cables, so I'd rather not have to unplug it and would much prefer a button. Ideally it would have a power LED on the back of the forward-facing camera to let me know when it's on and off.
- Is it possible to easily turn off audio recording while driving, yet turn it back on when parked just in case my car happens to attract a talkative thief ?
- Can you opt to not have it record MPH on the recording ?
- The app interaction sounds great, but has anyone seen a good explanation of which aspects are handled locally (ie, on my own wlan or via a direct connection to the camera system itself) versus an external webservice ? Love app integrations ... sending constant details and video of my personal life overseas, not so much ;)
thanks !

You might watch to check out some youtube video reviews. BlackboxMyCar is a good channel.

Thanks, I did put an attempt into figuring this out on my own but I'll dig deeper.
I have this cam for a couple of years (bought in South Korea, EN firmware). I would not recommend it for the price they asked originally or even for the price on the Massdrop. The main reason for my disappointment is a poor video quality. You can find tons of posts on different forums where folks discuss different ways to upgrade the optics (replacing onboard camera with some expensive solder-on cameras from third party manufactures etc.) and custom firmware (adding capability to change resolution etc.) of this cam in order to make it better record license plates (!) I had several occasions when it was very important to have a clear picture of the license plate and the recording looked like a digital camo, even though it was daylight rec. My brother has a dashboard cam twice cheaper than this and video quality is much better! To make long story short, you can rely on this cam ONLY if you don't expect to have clear recording of license plates. Overall I would not buy it again.

What camera does your brother use? Do you have any recommendation?
Previous Blackvue dr750lw-2ch owner purchased from an authorized dealer (not Massdrop). The dash cam functioned for about 9 months and it broke afterwards. For some reason the firmware on the camera would no longer load. The authorized dealer sent us a replacement. We used the new replacement for about 1 year and ended up with the same issue. At that point, the authorized seller and Blackvue in Korea would not fix our problem. I tried to update the firmware with the latest available online and that did not resolve the problem. I am not sure if this newer camera will last longer, but Blackvue back then was not ready for prime time. I have no confidence in Blackvue. I am currently using an INAVI FXD990 and It has been more than 1 year and its still working 100%.
I bought this last drop and now have it hardwired in my ND Miata using the power magic module and it's awesome. I've almost needed it once already when someone came at me down a one way road going the wrong way!
This product has come up a number of times. Each time it has caught my eye. Each time it tells me it cannot be shipped to Australia. Pity.

Seems like after looking at the discussion page and some reviews online is enough to deter me from getting it. Thanks for the heads up
AussieChopperBob
Did you know that in Australia you get a 2 year warranty? i don't know why people keep trying to buy overseas really bizarre some people
This is a great deal!! Looking forward to installing this in my car!
