    Even for the DR590 single channel?

      Yeah mate, the whole range.

      •  

        Does this mean it will be connected directly to the car battery rather than needing the 12v cigarette power inside?

      •  

        Interested to know if you are hiding all wires front to back without using cigarette lighter or USB ports? If so I will book my Mercedes in.

        •  

          Curious to know this as well.

          I would like to know so I can bring my Ferrari in.

        •  

          Yes, the installation is a professional level. The units are installed and the wiring is ghosted from view.

          Just casually dropping that you have a Mercedes. Everybody thinks you're cool now.

            @b2dz: Installations charges are different for some car models. Don't really care what you guys think.

                @b2dz: love it that you have Bugatti, good on you.

                @b2dz: Sounds like you have inferiority complex

        You guys use fuse taps or splicing wires?

        •  

          We splice into the wires and tap where required.

  •  

    Interested as well but I’m in north west Hills area, a bit too far me.

    •

    Sounds a decent deal. Shame it's nsw only

    The 750 2 channel is on back order. When will it arrive if I order it now?

    •  

      Thanks for pointing that out. We got a delivery yesterday, they're not on backorder - I'll update the site now.

  •  

    Is the extra money worth the 750IR version?

    •  

      If you are an Uber driver, get the IR, if not, don’t.

  •  

    Does anyone know how long to expect using this on the 12.5V cut off mode in hours? Generally speaking, assuming a healthy average sized battery etc

    OP: I'm considering coming down from Newcastle for this one day next week. Just doing some homework to make sure it's exactly what I want and need (DR900s 2-Channel)

    • +1 vote

      The cut out depends greatly on your make, model and the condition of your battery. When it all marries up, we see customers reporting 6-10 hours without issue.

  •  

    Approximately how long would the installation take?

    •  

      Depends on your make and model, but usually around 1.5 hours.

      •  

        I have a 2016 bottom of the range Kia Cerato. I’ve been meaning to get a dashcam for ages. Would the DR590 single channel suit?

  •  

    Is it free installation if only buy Power Magic Pro? Thanks.

    •  

      No the offer is free install and PMP with the purchase of a camera.

  •  

    I have BlackVue front and rear in both of our vehicles. I can vouch for the quality of them.
    The one complaint I have is that I've gone through about 3 memory cards (non BlackVue brand).
    They just 'stop working' and I get audio error.
    Mine is currently unplugged until I get it resolved.
    A bit frustrated.. not sure what to buy so it doesn't happen again. I guess I'll have to spend the $$ to get a BlackVue branded one (bigger than the supplied card).
    The product itself is awesome.

    •  

      Have you used the Samsung Endurance cards? They're supposed to be the best, curious if those are also failing.

      •  

        Haven't tried. I hesitant with all brands because I spend the $$ and then they fail.
        I guess if you endorse this brand, I'll try that one next. What size? I want the largest I can use.

        •  

          Ideally you want memory cards with good write speeds and are designed for continous write, not just storage. These are usually the higher spec SD cards and cost more.

          •  

            @charzy: This is the one that I have. I would have thought it would work okay.

            •  

              @JoeRogan: to be honest I don't recognize that brand and not sure if they'll have a tendency to fail early. I've used samsung and sandisk class 10 on 1080p recording and it's been fine. Failed if it wasn't class 10 though

              •  

                @charzy: Thanks for your help :)
                Would this one be okay?
                https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Micro-SD-Card-SDXC-SDHC-SanDisk-...

                It's the Samsung Evo Plus 256GB from the dropdown box.

                Thanks again.

                •  

                  @JoeRogan: As Click_It above said, maybe the Samsung endurance are your best chance to rule out the memory card being an issue. A 32b or 64gb at most should suffice for most cases.

                  •  

                    @charzy: Thanks @charzy. No harm in going bigger though, right? The bigger the card, the longer time I can go back to retrieve footage.

                    •  

                      @JoeRogan: I find I never go back to look for footage. Most dashcams these days will lock footage if there's an accident (g-shock sensors) to prevent rewrite (or you can manually lock it if you get into an accident).
                      1080P will give me at least a weeks worth of recording on a 32gb card, 30 min drive to and back every day.

    •  

      I have no problems with Samsung Endurance or Evo Plus (Plus not the + version). My only complaint is the PMP being too effective on cars with dying batteries, it really does cut out when fall below 12V.

    How much is installation if I already have a BlackVue DR750S but want to install the Power Magic Pro?

    • +1 vote

      IR models are for in cabin recording. If you’re an Uber driver this is handy, if not, not so much.

  •  

    Seems like a good deal.
    Does it matter if my rear windscreen is tinted?

    •  

      Nope it’ll still record and see through tint

  •  

    Is the installation process the same for PHEV?

    •  

      Sorry, what’s PHEV?

      •  

        I believe he is referring to a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle.

        •  

          Oh, then, as I understand it, it's the same installation process.

    An FYI email I received from BlackVue.
    "The X Series models replace the DR900S, DR750S and DR590W models. As a bonus, the DR900X and DR750X come with a price drop compared to their predecessors.

    The new models sport similar video recording specs, with the added bonus of built-in voltage monitoring and micro USB ports. The built-in voltage monitor will allow you to hardwire the dashcams without the need for a Power Magic Pro kit. The micro USB ports allow for easy Cloud connectivity via plug-in LTE Connectivity Module."
