Bargain Hunting? Get More Than Just A Price Match at BlackboxMyCar

Paul came across a Thinkware U1000 Product Video on YouTube one night and immediately, he’s in love. He was just about to hit Buy Now on Amazon when Nancy, his wife, convinced him they needed to do some comparison shipping first. Wives know best, and Paul set off to bargain-hunt. He found that pricing for the 4K dash cam is pretty much standard across the board and major chain retailers like Best Buy and Walmart offer price-matching policies anyways. But the more he reads, the more he panics - there is so much more to owning a dash cam than just finding the best deal - there’s hardware installation, camera configuration, maintenance, memory cards, cables and wires, cloud (what’s a cloud dash cam anyway?), WiFi, troubleshooting, and much more. Help!

Then Nancy said, Why not check out BlackboxMyCar, they are Canada’s #1 dash cam store! I’m sure they can help!

You bet we can help!

What makes us great is not only because we carry a wide selection of best-quality dash cameras by various premium brands, including the real 4K dash cams, and it is definitely more than just our latest dash cam sale or our guaranteed best prices.

Nowadays, you can buy a decent 2 channel dash cam from just about any major retail chain - Walmart, Staples, London Drugs, Canadian Tire, Best Buy and of course, on Amazon. And these stores are great, you can grab your Thinkware dash cam, crayons for the kids, a can of tomato soup, and just about anything else you need quickly and easily.

On the other hand, BlackboxMyCar is a dash cam specialty store. You won’t find pet food or frozen TV dinners here because we only specialize in one thing - dash cams, and we are a bit of an expert at that. Anything you need to capture your drive you can be sure to find it on our website: dash cams, battery packs, microSD cards, hardwiring kits, installation tools, power cables and adaptors, filters, mounts and tapes; we even have Smile, You’re on Dash Cam” stickers! We also have a team of technicians installing dash cams at our Install Service Centre - best of all, we can install your dash cam even if you didn’t purchase it from us!

BlackboxMyCar 360° Customer Happiness Guarantee.

Everywhere you shop, you can see a “We Price Match!” sign, so what is the best price anyway? Besides, most dash cam manufacturers (such as Thinkware and BlackVue) have strict policies on the lowest price a retailer can market the dash cams or when a retailer can throw a grand dash cam sale. In other words, if one store has a sale going on, you can expect the rest of them to follow suit, too. Yes, the chase for the best or the lowest price is a never-ending one.

That’s why at BlackboxMyCar, we prefer to use the term, Customer Happiness Guarantee.

Customer Happiness = Best Selection + Best Prices + Best Service + Best Support

You get the best selection in brands, features and more

We work closely with premium dash cam manufacturers like Thinkware, BlackVue, IROAD, VIOFO and many more. We are always one of the first in the know of upcoming products and price-drops, and that makes us feel extra special because getting new products ahead of time gives us ample time for our own in-house testing. And the more we test out the features, the more we know the good and the bad of each model - we know what to include in our product lineup and what to send back. From 4K UHD to Full HD, front-facing and in-cabin, cloud and low profile dash cam and more, we’ve got them all. Not sure what you need? Our Best Dash Cams of 2020 guide is a good place to start! Yes, we’ve tested all those dash cams and have written extensively about them all.

So, you might need advanced parking surveillance to watch over your vehicle or you need to record your miles-upon-miles in 4K, or perhaps, both? We’ve got a wide selection of dash cams so you’re bound to find one that fits your specific needs.

You get the best prices with our Price Match Guarantee

Let’s start with our Price Match Guarantee: we price match all Canadian retailers, including Best Buy, Walmart, London Drugs, Canadian Tire, Staples,, etc. Looking for a price match? We’re ready! If the product you’re comparing meets our criteria, we will match their price!

In addition, we have different promotions and deals each month, whether it’s a discount at checkout or free accessories with the purchase, and for an even sweeter deal, we also offer free extended warranties on our hottest products. For example, while you will get the same standard 12-month manufacturer warranty on the Thinkware U1000 everywhere, when you shop at BlackboxMyCar, you can get an extra 5% off just by signing up for our email newsletters!

And sometimes, we accept trade-ins, too! Rather than resorting to the recycling depot, why not contact us to see if your old dash cam qualifies for a trade-in offer - it never hurts to inquire.

You get the best service from our in-house dash cam experts

We sell, service, install, write and film dash cams; all our meetings are about dash cams; we have the dash cam manufacturers on speed-dial. We’ve got answers to your dash cam questions, anything from what’s the perfect dash cam for my drive to how to hardwire a dash cam.

Looking for Blackvue or Thinkware dash cam comparison? Talk to us for our most honest recommendations.

But, don’t just take our word for it, check out reviews and testimonials from real customers.

You get the best support with fast shipping and professional installation

And just because your dash cam has left our shipping centre doesn’t mean we stop providing you support. In fact, it’s the other way around here at BlackboxMyCar - you can expect nothing but real support even before your dash cam leaves our warehouse and all the way until you drive off our lot after a professional dash cam installation and beyond.

Once your order is packed, we arrange for it to be picked up by our mail courier as soon as possible to ensure rocket-fast shipping. Did you know that we offer door-to-door in 1-3 days for most major cities in Canada? You can contact us anytime if there should be any problems and we will do everything we can to ensure a smooth delivery.

After you’ve received your dash cam, and whether you need installation help, or tips on getting the most out of your dash cam, you can come talk to us anytime. And if you’re not satisfied with the dash cam for whatever reason, just send it back to us, we have a no-questions-asked return policy.

We also have a dedicated Install Service Centre in Vancouver, BC. Yes, that means if you live in the Greater Vancouver area, and you are not comfortable tackling the installation yourself, just bring it to us. Just sit back, drink some coffee, watch some Netflix (or YouTube), surf the net (complimentary WiFi) while our technician installs your dash cam for you. We’ve had customers bring in their vehicles all the way from Calgary, AB and Seattle, WA. Our technicians have installed dash cams in a multitude of vehicles, from domestic pickups to import racers, exotic supercars and even fleet vehicles.

Check out a couple of our most recent installations:

You can find more of our installations on our Instagram @blackboxmycar.

Our dash cam installations are backed by a 3-months warranty and if you’ve purchased the dash cam from us, we’ll tack on an extra 3-months warranty on the dash cam, too.

Got a dash cam from elsewhere but want us to install it for you? Not a problem! Just send us a request and we’ll work something out for you. Our technicians are experienced with various makes and models, even ones that we don’t carry.

Thank goodness for Nancy!

Thank goodness for Nancy, Paul gave us a call and our Sales team walked him through his questions about the Thinkware U1000 and other options available. He has also booked an installation appointment with our Install Service Centre. But Paul didn’t stay for coffee or Netflix though, he dropped off his Toyota and his new Thinkware U1000, and then headed straight to the driving range across the street. Two hours and a couple buckets of balls later, Paul drove out of our Install Service Centre with his new dash cam all set up to capture all the adventures ahead.

Best selection + price match + in-house experts + comprehensive support, now that's the BlackboxMyCar 360° Customer Happiness Guarantee.

(See, wives do know best!)

Happy Adventure-Capturing, Paul!

Less Strain On Car Battery (2020 Hyundai Kona Ultimate)

It has been 4 days since the installation of the Cellink NEO Battery, serviced by a fantastic installation team. The NEO gives me an ease of mind knowing that it has added an extra 13-15 hours of running time to my Dual Channel Thinkware U-1000 dash cam system whilst my vehicle is turned off (parking mode). First off, it has been less stressful for me when starting my car because I don't see the "Battery Discharged" warning anymore, knowing that the NEO has put less strain on my car battery. Additionally, with a 40 minute drive-to-charge time frame, it isn't bad at all as my commute to and from work equates to approximately 45 minutes. Therefore, I get a full charge on the NEO that gives me 20-22 hours of run-time on my dash cam. One advice I would give to potential dash-cam buyers in making the jump to buy this battery is: if you haven't gotten a dash cam yet and if you are opting for the installation service, purchase your dash cam and the NEO together and pay for just 1 installation. I made the mistake of having to pay for 2 separate installation services because I decided to buy the battery later on and could have saved $200.

Hi Kevin, thanks for leaving a review. Great advice! Hope you're loving your Cellink NEO. Come back anytime if you have any other questions.
Fits 2020 Rav4 XSE hybrid

I installed this on the small space right hand forward of the spare tire. The thickness of the Cell link Neo is just perfect. It it was a little bit thicker the rear cover will not be flush with the floor. Negative connection was done directly to the vehicle 12V accessory battery as it is mounted at the right rear tail. ACC input was connected to the accessory rear 12V outlet. Cell link Neo powers 2 Garmin dash cam minis.

I wish the Cell link Neo have an option to change the name in the app. I have another Neo battery on another vehicle and it is hard to remember the serial numbers. But overall it works great.

Hi there, thanks for leaving a detailed review. Glad to hear that the Cellink NEO is everything you're looking for :) let us know if you have any questions in the future.
Easy installation

Works as described

Hi Vinh, thanks for leaving a review!

Great service

Thanks for leaving a review, William!
Product and shipping

Shipping and blackboxmycar are great.

Product is expensive and 3m tape will not fit properly. For an expensive product from thinkware i would assume products would come with vehicle specific or general items to install properly. Other options than the 3m tape.

Keep in mind to take measurements for placing the main unit. It may not fit or able to be placed under your seat.

I have spent more money on a front stand and bolted the camera. The rear camera ive made brackets and bolted it.

Hi Blkhze, thanks for leaving a review! Sorry to hear that, but glad to see that you found a solution. If you have any future questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly.
A pricey dash cam

Very pricey, yet not quite the "jump" in video quality I expected for the huge pricetag.
When the vehicle is not in motion, then video quality is very crisp and clear. However, as soon as your vehicle is in motion (driving...) the video becomes extremely "contrasted" almost like it is over-correcting for image quality, and in-turn making it worse. I had a rexing V1 (1080p) for 3 years, and saved me through 2 hit & runs... simple, good quality, cheap. I expected the jump to 4k to be huge... The video is "brighter" at best, but my Rexing V1 was definitely smoother while driving. Hopefully this is something a firmware update can fix. I have messed with the 2K @ 60fps, but the video quality drops noticeably... to worse than my 1080P Rexing V1. (Doesnt add up)
I have had my eyes on this camera since before it came out, but I am still hoping it can pull through...

Hi Kyle, thank you for leaving a review. We will definitely relay this feedback back to Thinkware. They're constantly working on new firmware for their models, especially the U1000, so we do expect it to get even better over time. That said, have you updated your dash cam to the latest firmware? If you need help, please don't hesitate to reach out to our team. We're here to help!
BlackboxMyCar is Excellent!

Awesome Product and Support

BackBoxMyCar helped me make figure out which Dash Cam system was best for my 2015 Lexus RX350. Their live chat team is great to work with and they made figuring out the best dash cam for me very easy. After having it installed I am very impressed with the reliability and capability of this product. Also it was shipped out to me in less then 3 business days, which I found really impressive. Going forward I will continue to purchase from BlackBox due to this wonderful experience.

Hi Ben, thanks for leaving a review! We try our best to help our customers, so we're glad to hear that you had a great time with us! Come back anytime.
Excellent Purchase and Service from BlackBoxMyCar

This radar module was a great addition to my Thinkware U1000 dash cam system. The setup was very straight forward and this accessory is a must for passive parking mode. BlackBoxMyCar helped me with decision to make this smart purchase through the help with one of there representatives on live chat. Their customer support team is world class and very helpful.

Hi Ben, thanks for leaving a review! We try our best to help our customers, so we're glad to hear that you had a great time with us! Come back anytime.
Fast shipping and great communication

I found this website after looking at youtube videos with vortexradar after searching for dash cameras. I have a 4 year old a119 that I have tried for hours and hours over the years to update the firmware on with no luck. It also isnt 4k and it doesn't have wifi. I find it a pain in the butt to take the memory card out and have to use the computer to download files. Now I can do it via wifi with my phone. Wifi is working fine for me with their app. I liked the a119 wedge shape and this is essentially the exact shape. The mounts are not compatible but not a big deal. This a129 pro has a much more substantial feel to it but isn't any bigger than the old model. I kind of wish I had ordered the rear camera bundle at the same time but I can always order the rear camera later. Everybody needs a dash camera to avoid the he said/she said bs that happens when there is an accident.

These guys ship fast. I am in Washington and ordered on a Monday. Camera arrived 2 days later on Wednesday. I had several texts and emails during that time keeping me updated on the progress of my order. I was so impressed that I am thinking about buying my next radar detector from them, the 360c. I am not sure if I am getting that one but that is the only one they carry.

Hi David, thanks for leaving a review. We hope you're staying safe out in Washington! We're glad to hear that you're loving your VIOFO and it's everything you need. Do reach out anytime if you have any other questions. One more thing, if you're interested in any other models of radar detectors, do reach out and ask. We may be able to source it for you at a great price. Thanks!

[$50 OFF] Thinkware U1000 4K UHD Dual-Channel Cloud Dash Cam

Hi Gerald, thanks for leaving a review!
The complete package!

I recently purchased a thinkware F800 front and rear camera combo for my M4. After researching, I heard that BMWs are sensitive to voltage drops when the camera is in parking mode.

I purchased the battery and searched youtube for a camera install video. Ironically the video I watched was a video blackbox my car made specifically for the BMW M4! Great products provided and great tutorials that helped me get it installed, thanks again Blackboxmycar!!

Thanks for leaving a review, and an image as well! We're glad to see that you had a great experience with us, Rob. If you have any questions, come back anytime!
A nice dash cam with GPS capabilities

I am very satisfied with the Viofo A119 V3 camera after using it for a week or so. It takes great video and is simple to operate. With the included GPS base I can select the speed and/or location to be recorded on the video. I just installed the optional wiring harness but have not experimented with the parking mode as of yet. Overall I am very satisfied with the build quality. The menu is easy to maneuver through and the buttons on the front are easy to use even when driving. I would definitely purchase this again!

Hi David, thanks for leaving a review! We're glad to hear that you're loving your VIOFO as much as we do.
Excellent cam

Good rear view cam with great picture. Awesome thank you!

Hi Raymond, thanks for leaving a review!
So far so good.

Good tracking notice. I’ve only had it for a short time so I’m still playing with it to get it figured out. Video is very good quality (I’ve only used it in daylight so I can speak for nighttime). Instructions are minimal but I was able to get it figured out since it is pretty simplistic (I had to search the internet to get the time zone properly set). As it stands now I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good and simple dash cam.

Hi Jeff, thank you for purchasing at BlackboxMyCar, and thank you for leaving a review! We're glad to hear that the VIOFO was everything you were looking for. That said, if you have questions in the future, please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team. We are always here to help!

courteous and prompt communication, item shipped promptly

I ordered dash cams and accessories from blackboxmycar and have been very happy with their services. I had to communicate with them several times regarding my order, including talking to them over the phone and emailing them. Every single time I received very courteous response and satisfactory answers. The items were shipped promptly and I had them professionally installed. Overall, I am very satisfied. Thank you.

Hi Chin, thank you for shopping at BlackboxMyCar, and for visiting our office! Glad that our team was able to help you with everything that you needed.
Easy to install, easy to use!

BlackBoxMyCar sent everything I needed to install my Viofo A119 V3. A quick YouTube search gave me the easy steps for burying the wires and finding my fuse box for my F-150. And I was off and running! Thanks a bunch!

Hi Adam, thanks for leaving a review! Glad to hear that it all worked out for you :)
