FAQ

What is a dash cam?

A dash cam stands for a dashboard camera that is mounted inside the vehicle, usually on the front windshield. A dash cam, depending on the model, can do many things such as record both when the vehicle is being driven and when it’s parked, record audio, provide a connection to a smartphone app so that video can be reviewed and saved on the spot, etc.

What is an IR dash cam?

An IR dash cam is a dash cam with infrared lights that provide recording details under poorly-lit conditions, as well as total darkness. These are dual-channel dash cam setups with a regular front-facing unit and a secondary unit that comes with infrared lights.

The secondary unit is typically mounted to face and record the interior of the vehicle, and thus is especially recommended for rideshare users, such as for Uber and Lyft, or for commercial use, such as fleet managers.

Why buy a premium dash cam?

There are a few reasons as to why this is the case, and these reasons make a huge difference. Learn more about premium features including design, parking mode, smartphone integration, 4K UHD video resolution, g-force, ADAS, memory card storage and more.

What is parking mode?

Parking mode recording is a feature of a dash cam that keeps your dash cam recording footage even when the vehicle is off. Typically found only in premium dash cams, parking mode provides around-the-clock protection and surveillance for the vehicle.

What is Wi-Fi & GPS?

The wi-fi feature in a dash cam is what allows a smartphone to be paired to the dash cams. Unlike a regular wi-fi network signal that gives you internet access, the purpose here is just to connect the dash cam and smartphone together.

The GPS feature in a dash cam shows the vehicle’s speed and, for some models, the location of the vehicle with Google Maps integration.

Best Site for the Best Dashcams Around

My 2nd purchase from Alex and 2nd Blackvue camera purchased. Blackvue is my favourite dashcam because of its sleek and unobtrusive design and extremely high quality recordings. Easy to download recordings with the app now, will continue to recommend Blackvue's to everyone.

As for blackboxmycar.ca, great selection of the best Dashcams out on the market. Extremely informative website with an abundance of information and comparisons to make the right choice. Fast shipping and great customer service, this is the way to go to buy a dashcam over the cheaper but inferior choices on Amazon or anywhere else.

Hi Wesley, thanks for your review. We're glad to hear that you're loving your BlackVue dash cam as much as we do! Hope the DR590W-1CH treats you well :) If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our team.

Great little camera!

We had used Roav cameras and Wheel Witness Pro dash cameras over the years but both usually have structural or video failure within 12-18 months. These seem much sturdier and the video is very good, too!

Hi Jennifer, thank you for leaving a review! We're glad to hear that you're loving the BlackVue DR590W-1CH :)

Blackbox and Blackvue get 5 stars up from me

I ordered the BlackVue DR590W-1CH WiFi Dash Cam, after enjoying a Youtube video interview with Alex. The Youtube video was informative and understandable, quite refreshing from many other Youtube webcam videos I found confusing and difficult to comprehend.
The Blackboxmycar website was well laid out, easy to navigate, the reviews were informative and user based with openness and comfort. This was very helpful as my main concern was having smooth and seamless operation with parking mode, to which I also purchased and installed the "Power Magic Pro", based on other reviews.
Shipping was very fast and trackable, package received in under 3 days, thank you and well done to Blackboxmycar shipping department. All aspects of the order were communicated via email and text and the package arrived seamlessly and painless.
With the cam installed, up and running, parking mode is fabulous, I have already captured an incident/accident right in front of me involving 3 cars. Would ICBC be interested in the video capture??
I am not the most technologically savvy consumer, however the operation an user friendliness and ease of operation of this unit from Blackvue and Blackbox has me tickled pink and am thoroughly pleased with my purchase.

Thank you Alex and Jordan - signed a very happy customer

unlock the power of the cam

Nice solution for fast choice parking power alternatives. Also, I would prefer to have chosen the OBSD adapter version for easiness, but once installed should be fine. The cigar adapter contacts doesn't appear to be enough reliable.

this is awesome product

it relay make the insulation for me very very easy and my customers was very happy because i didn't use any factory wire to connect the dash cam
i give to my customer 30% off from my insulation coast and i save 30 min from my instillation time .

Great camera system

Bought the front, rear and diagnostic port cable (plus their crevasse tool - buy this for sure, I didn’t need the huge install package). Setup was simple and the quality of image is stellar. I personally don’t like all the audio startup info (got old within a day) but will have to live with it, cannot turn it off it seems. For the overall system with me installing it myself, she gets 5/5, could be 6/5 if the audio could be turned off.

easy as pie

so i watched a video as they talked about all the best cameras of all different levels. i chose the best of the best. i placed the order and it was sent to me. literally just that easy

Viofo A129 Pro duo

Hooked the unit to my truck amazing picture quality amazing videos great sound it has it all very satasfied

Thinkware Q800PRO 2K QHD Dash Cam

great price, bought two!

Best mini 128GB at a nice price. Thank you

Overall decent - night is iffy

Overall the camera is decent. The site's service is great. Camera is mostly good. Night time videos has lots of halos/streak

No complaints - ready for another

Quick shipping and all the tools necessary for me to easily install the DR900S. I've had the camera installed in our Equinox now for almost 90 days and I don't have any complaints with it. Changing settings and accessing the footage via wifi is straight forward and was very helpful to review with my daughter after our driving lessons! Now that she has her own car it's time to purchase a second dash cam and I don't have any hesitation in purchasing a second DR900S for it.

so many emails

I bought the suction cup mount 10 days ago and every couple days I get an email about leaving a review so here it is. I have not used the suction cup mount yet or even taken it out of the packaging. I'm sure it's a nice mount but I can not attest to that. I can say when I contacted the website, they got back to me within a day and were very helpful. Would buy from "blackboxmycar" again.

Bought this to replace a different camera

I tried to use the financing option to pay for the camera. Story of my life, I was rejected for some stupid reason. I also had a lot of hours cut from work, so I didn’t get paid a whole lot. I ended up having to make the purchase in full, which left me with very little money. Other than that (I’m not holding it against anyone; the universe hates me lol), my experience shopping here was excellent. I didn’t have to pay any sales tax like I thought I would and shipping was free. The camera also arrived one day earlier than the initial estimate.

The system has been installed in our vehicle for only three or four days. I wanted to get the hardwire kit, but that’ll have to wait until next pay check. The power adapter that was included seems a little questionable. A little green disk lights up when it’s receiving power, which I like, and it includes two USB ports. I assume one to power the camera (duh) and the other for your phone or whatever. It has a three amp current output, but I don’t know how much the camera system uses. I figured probably 2 amps for the camera(s) and the last amp for your device. I didn’t like that it doesn’t list the input current, but that could just be me being picky. The power cord is plenty long enough for us. We installed it so that the cable runs out of the camera and then drops straight to the floor and back up to the power adapter. Absolutely nothing fancy about it. Well, we have a medium binder clip clipped onto one of the hvac vents and then the cable is ran inside of the...the flippy things you squeeze to open the clip.

The rear camera was a different story. I used the included wire clips to take the cable across the top of the windshield (to the passenger side), then I sent the cable over the sun visor, using it as support. Then I used the little hook over the back seat (the one you can put hangers and stuff on) as another support (did I mention this is an 05 Chevy cobalt). I then used another of the included hooks to hold the cable to the back windshield. There was a lot of leftover cable, so I lowered the back seat backrest and dropped the excess behind the seat. I do wish that both ends of the cable were angled or that the connector on the rear cam was angled. I had to place it fairly low on the window to allow the cable to plug in. It would also be pretty cool if there were some bigger cable clips included too so that I could stuff both cords into one clamp. I’d only need a couple though, as the two cables would depart ways early in the routing.

Installing the camera system was easy. Maybe a little too easy. I found a great spot to place the front cam first. It was right behind the rear view, and the mesh allowed me to get the camera installed level. I took the film off the sticky pad and very gently touched it to the glass to line it up before pressing it firmly. I got it just a little bit uneven, but the sticky pad had already taken a strong hold to the glass. It isn’t noticeable at all, which is good because I never got it unstuck to realign. I did take the gps unit off (since it is the base) and mounted /it/ to the window.

The rear cam went about the same, but I did have to peel it off a few times. Once because I misaligned it, again because I couldn’t fit the cable into the port, and yet again for the same reason. Other than those nuances, installation was fairly straightforward. I also downloaded the app (which only has two stars on the App Store!!) to assist in the installation (yay for live view lol). My first issue with the app was when I put my phone into landscape mode. It would seem like the app developers would have accounted for people who rotate their phone in different directions. I flipped mine in a direction the app wasn’t proud of, and I was getting an upside down view of everything. Of course, when I flipped my phone the other way, the view was right side up. But surely that’s not the reason it was given only 2 stars (I’ll come back to this. I’m writing this review chronologically).

The captured videos are massive in size. Almost a half gigabyte or more for a 10 minute recording. The instructions imply the cameras WiFi has a 5G mode. Either this is wrong, or the option is very, very well hidden. It takes about as much time to download a video as the videos duration is (10 minutes for a 10 minute video). It looks crisp on smaller displays, but on a 1440x1080 monitor (which is basically standard these days), the view becomes degraded rather obviously. As with basically all wide-angle cameras, it’s hard to get a good judge of distance and speed, which is part of why I wanted the gps (the leading factor was so that our speed would be stamped in the video, so no one could claim we were speeding or something if something happened).

Next came what I’m going to refer to as long-term testing. When I initially tested a video, there was still plenty of free space left on the included uSD card. My precious camera gave a weird issue. It’s videos ...

Hi Joseph, thank you for leaving a detailed review. We're glad to hear that you had a positive shopping experience with us, and sorry to hear that the financing option didn't work out. Our support team will be reaching out personally to assist you further with your installation if necessary, but we look forward to your long-term testing!

Thanks

Thanks to All at BlackboxMyCar. From the time I purchased my Viofo 119 V3 Dashcam, to the excellent and timely delivery, and technical support I received from your Company is second to none. Thank you, look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Hi Sherri, thank you for shopping at BlackboxMyCar! We're glad to have you as a customer. Come back anytime :)
Great customer service!

I bought this dashcam based on very positive reviews! Well I received the package and realized that I was sent the wrong rear camera, a 1080p as the U1000 two channel comes with a 2K QHD rear camera! I was able to email Jonathan and he verified that I received the wrong camera and will send the matching camera when I send back the 1080p camera! Thank you Jonathan for your assistance! I could have bought from other authorized resellers but I had bought from you because your company is based on customer service! I could have paid more or less but customer service and support is more important to me! Loyalty to service is key! Even though you are located from almost opposite sides of the Country, your customer service sold me to you!!! Continued success!!!

Hi David, thank you for leaving a review! We apologize for the mishap and we thank you for your patience. We're glad to hear that Jonathan was able to help you out with fixing the situation. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us in the future.
Excellent customer service

Was able to get the right dash cam and the service provided was excellent. The CS representative Katrina was really resourceful. In depth analysis on installation and dash models. Thanks!

Hi Kevin, thanks for leaving a review. Glad to hear you found what you were looking for :) We'll pass on your compliments to Katrina!
