Every generation had its signature way of getting around. In the 70’s, nothing symbolized freedom better than hitch-hiking. Immortalized in movies and TV, the 80s was all about the turbocharged classics, fully-realized exotics as well as accessible imports. Who can forget the DeLorean in the Back to the Future trilogy, the Pontiac Firebird in Knight Rider, or the Ferrari Testarossa in Miami Vice. Then in the past few years, the focus shifted to environmental awareness and the first wave of hybrid vehicles rolled in. Today, transportation has gotten even more efficient and with Uber and Lyft taking off in many major metropolitans, we are officially in the rideshare generation.
I love it! Install using the OBDII adapter was as easy! Install took only 15-20 minutes. So far everything is working as it should and I have no complaints. Picture quality is superb. Very satisfied and would recommend to anyone looking for a 4K dash cam.
I had a FineVu CR-500HD dashcamI also purchased from BBMC that needed to be replaced. Although it still worked it was getting buggy and outdated. So when I saw the U1000 I was eager to buy it. But I had a few questions about the unit. SO I turned to BBMC's chat and talked to Mark and Katrina. They were both very helpful in answering all my questions and because of that I purchased the U1000 with the radar sensor.
I was pleasantly surprised at how small the unit was. For some reason when I watched the videos it seemed bigger.
Installation was fairly easy using the hardwired method as I had the Power Magic Pro already installed. I just cut the wires from that and connected them to the U1000 wiring kit.
Setting up the unit was also very straight forward. The only thing I had difficulty with was registering the unit which entailed connecting it to a hotspot on my cell phone. But once I got it straightened out it was smooth sailing.
The only thing I find a little annoying is that when entering the car and the unit is in parking mode when I either open the door or close it the unit registers it as an event.
All in all I'm happy with the unit. The images are nice and clear.
Great customer service. Have not try out the dash cam yet.
I have not installed it yet but I will soon.
This camera is so awesome! it can see in total darkness in Uber/Lyft cabs. the resolution is incredible. It can show what customer left an object/keys in your car so you can get them back to them quickly.
If you have problems with riders stealing stuff, like your tip jar...this camera makes them think twice. Also has saved me from riders who tend to exaggerate and ask that you ignore the GPS, and then they try to get their money back....not anymore... Camera captures license plates late at night....and even captured someone backing into my car causing an accident. She admitted fault, and the audio was captured. perfect camera for both your passengers and for your personal protection.
Purchased this unit on the recommendation of Scotty Kilmer of YouTube fame.
Thought it would be a good idea to be able to get a "second opinion" of my car's health...you can't always rely on the dealership.
Unit is easy to use and seems to work. Doesn't have all the features but plenty good enough for me.
It’s only a couple weeks old but we are super impressed with the video quality and ease of install and operation of the unit (front and rear cameras installed in our Dodge Grand Caravan)
I installed it myself with ease, the package even came with a tool to help remove interior trim pieces (that’s forward thinking)
We have a thinkware F800 in our other vehicle and it’s great too but this 4k VIOFO unit may give it a run for the money.
Also great speedy responce from Blackbox my car with questions I had!
I’m in law enforcement and this unit’s video quality rivals the units we have in our patrol cars!
I have just bought the Viofo A129 Duo 1080p Dash Cam. It is very well made and takes excellent videos. Highly recommended. For any help that you need the Customer Service is also excellent.
I am a return customer and fully satisfied with my purchase as expected from BlackBoxMyCar and special thanks to Mark, I don’t know his last name.
VERY GOOD PRODUCT AND REALLY NICELY BUILD WILL LET YOU KNOW ONCE I INSTALL THEM HOW THEY WORK
Very fast shipping. Everything was great. Easy install and setup. 5 stars for the camera and Blackboxmycar!
Purchased the Thinkware Q800PRO. Excellent quality and great service to go with it.
I'm a new car owner and a new dad as well. Which is why I wanted a dashcam system that will give me the added security while at the same time not add too much cost because I need my money for milk and diapers haha. After reading / watching the reviews at BlackBoxMyCar's website and youtube channel, I decided that Viofo is the one for me. It's reliable, video quality is second to none, it has a screen / viewer too! I know it does not have the cloud integration, but it's fine with as it is something I don't require. So again, I'm extremely happy with my purchase and extremely happy as well that I came across BlackBoxMyCar. Thanks, guys!
I waited to review until I found the time to get the equipment installed. Everything went as expected except clearance under the front seat was insufficient to install the battery in that location. The trunk provided the best option in a Mustang, and I suspect that would be the same for most cars in this category. I found that the installation was much easier than I expected, and the equipment furnished to accomplish it worked better than expected. The best part is everything works!!! All BlackBox staff members I either talked to or chatted with had the right information at their fingertips, and I received all the equipment I ordered earlier than expected and in perfect condition. I believe it was Mark I was chatting with on line, and the young lady I talked to on the phone just prior to my ordering really knew the equipment and made sure I ordered the correct fuse taps for my Mustang. I just wish I had written her name down at the time so she could receive proper recognition.
Very happy with this Dash Cam , video quality is awesome. I was amazed how quickly I received the product, also in the package was a thoughtful hand written note from Murphy, thanking me for my order and support during this Covid pandemic, I hardwired the unit in my Silverado truck in a few hours, and it wasn't difficult at all. I would recommend watching a Thinkware installation video on YT which is more detailed of how to make the connections into the fuse panel.
I would definitely recommend you guys.
Thanks for the great service.
Easy to install. Easy to connect to my iPhone and the app is a smooth navigation. Could check it live and save clips. Wish we could check it live if we aren’t in the car and connected to the dash cam’s WiFi but that’s cool. The quality is nice too. My first dash cam and I think I’ve made a great choice :D
This camera clear and work great glad i oick it up
Very fast service I received the products with 3 days of ordering. I purchased two Viofo A129 as birthday gifts for son and daughter coming up in June so I have yet to give it to them thus have not been installed. Additional reviews to follow once installed.
Have previously bought VIOFO products for my prior car. Best investment I made. Just bought a newer model, a129 Duo. Works great. Am happy I bought this through BlackBoxMyCar in case of any issues or warranty needs. Easy buying process. And was shipped quickly.
The install of any dash cam system will present the same challenges. Some vehilces will be inherently more difficult than others. I installed the system in my 2012 Jeep JK and because of the relatively open architecture of Jeeps, it was not (too) bad. Don’t count on YouTube videos for help with speciifc vehilces as even one model year difference can make a big difference in routing the wiring; for instance: where is the factory wiring pass-through hole in the firewall and which fuse do you piggy-back for ignition source only power? You will have to watch several videos and understand the architecture of your vehicle. I would definitely recommend the 3 wire hookup option (hard wired, not plug in) which allows for parking mode security. The system has the capability, so why not use it? I installed the two channel (front and rear) option. The system works as advertised, but you will have to play with it for a bit to get used to using the functions and menu. The WI-FI mode is a must have in my opinion and is easily acheived using the APP, which you must download. The VA129 has an integrated GPS, so no need for an external unit, allowing pictures and videos to be location stamped as well as time stamped (this is a must have feature). This system also uses capacitors rather than lithium ion batteries. There are several good videos that discuss the advantages, so I’ll leave that to you. Again, do your homework and I think you will find the the VIOFO A129 4K 2-channel system, with GPS, offers oustanding value and functionality at the price point.
The VIOFO A129 Duo 4K met and exceeded my expectations completely. I originally had two individual cameras for front and back and thought it may have been time to upgrade after reading about some of the new cameras out there. After many hours of research I came across the BlackboxMyCar website and found not only excellent information and prices, but superb support based on the reviews. The order and shipment were easy and quick. I took a bit of time to install and had a minor issue with the parking kit. I emailed support with an issue related to the parking kit and they responded quickly and also sent out a replacement part extremely fast with no hassle. I was up and running in a very short time. After a bit more research on recommended settings and configurations on the VIOFO community forums, I have verified the recorded content and functionality and everything is working great. Extremely satisfied customer of BlackboxMyCar and VIOFO. Thanks!
Very hard to figure what you have the set it set to you should Recommend what’s good settings.
This is my first dash cam That's why I didn't get the 900. The parking mode feature is what I like. I cant believe the quality of the video feed its way better than I was expecting. Easy to install, highly recommend getting the fuse tap kit. I mounted the rear cam upside down ,it didn't matter you can rotate it 180 in the app. Glad I bought it now
