Had fitted into the car and works really well. Cameras should be in new cars as standard now.
Best dash cam and very reliable.
Good quality picture but the cloud feature is extremely misleading. Good quality picture but the cloud feature is extremely misleading. The built in wifi is only to connect your phone to the camera so that you can access the videos. It is notused for recording to the cloud. Recording to the cloud is only possible if you have a mobile hotspot e. On your smart phone, or built in to your car. So if the smart phone is not connected, or ignition is off in your wifi enabled car there is no recording to the cloud. In fact, when i did connect it to my mobile hotspot, once i disconnected i couldn’t even access the videos it recorded while connected to the mobile hotspot.
It does the job that i need. In contrary to some of the negative reviews here, i’ve had no issues with the sticky pad, in fact i found it difficult to remove when i needed to reposition the camera. But once removed, it is best to use a new sticky pad. Just make sure your glass is clean and dry before sticking it on. No issues with the quality of the videos when you stick the sd card directly into your computer. Videos are only jumpy if streamed from your dashcam to your phone via built in wifi. This doesn’t bother me because the design was intended to not have a built in screen so it can be small and discreet. Now for the pros and cons:pros:- small and discreet. – ease of installation really depends on your car. But i’ve had no major issues with installing this myself on a bmw f10, but you do need the right tools to loosen up the pillar covers to hide the cables properly.
Does it’s job perfectly and the ability to remote in to it when it’s in my garage connected to wifi was an unexpected bonus. It does seem to cut the videos in to many smaller parts but i’m assuming thats a setup issue as it seems overly sensitive to some things.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Best dash camera I’ve bought (out of three)
- This is a great bit of kit
- It does the job that I need
A few improvements could make this perfect. Please note that my review excludes the cloud functionality as i’ve disabled that feature. The problem with it is that anyone with the ‘blackvue’ app is able to see your location with it turned on. Optionally with the cloud function turned on, you can also allow everyone to view your current view through the dashcam. But again, this can be turned off separately. Pros – great picture quality – easy to install – easy to setup – wifi can be turned on/off easily if you don’t have it on permanently – you can easily mute the camera if you don’t want the audio recorded – more than enough cable provided – easy to reformat the sd card should you need to – impact detection when in parking mode – three recording modes – ‘normal mode’ when its recording while driving. ‘parking mode’ self explanatory. And ‘event mode’ when it thinks there has been a collision. This makes it easy to filter through the 1 minute video clips as you know you’ve looking for a file with the ‘event’ tag in the name of the file. Cons – using the app to transfer video clips to your phone is useless (constantly stops at random percentages and takes ages) – records 1 minute clips only (so if you want 2 minutes of footage, you have to stitch 2 videos together) – with good quality picture, you sacrifice storage space, i have a 64gb sd card and it can’t even fit a full 24 hours in the card (so get that footage quick if you need it) – seems to get quite hot.
The 6th blackburn i’ve purchased and without doubt the best. It does what its supposed to do without. This is the 6th blackburn i’ve purchased and without doubt the best. It does what its supposed to do without fuss. It had only been in a week when some clown reversed into me then denied everything, his insurance played out when they saw the video, without it the wouldn’t have been interested so its paid for itself already.
