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

Easy to use. Plug and play

It was easy to install and the interface is pretty simple and easy to use. The video quality is fantastic. The only thing I do not like is it writes in an MP4 format which cannot be cast onto my TV.

Great product

Super easy to install and to setup

Perfect install kit

Came by just to grab 2 low profile mini add a fuses and got the kit for a very reasonable price. So nice to have the fuse circuit tester to make the install easier

Great battery pack

Easy to install/hide and is awesome with plug and play with dashcams. Took about 5 minutes to hardwire as it comes with whatever you needed granted that you select those options.

Crazy fast shipping

Ordered the wrong spliced wire kit when I ordered the neo cellink battery and quickly bought this. Thought it was going to come in next week and it showed up the next day in the morning of all times. Had plenty of time to install my dashcam

VIOFO A129 Duo

DIY install was straight forward with parking mode working nicely. Extra mounting adhesive is a plus in the event of windshield replacement. The only negative was my understanding a 32gb microSD came with every dash cam sold. My mistake. The front & rear camera video is quire good and the cost was reasonable for the system. Waiting to see how the Texas summer treats the camera.
Overall a good purchase.

Hi Jeff, thanks for purchasing from BlackboxMyCar. Sorry for the miscommunication - this was a limited time promotion and because of the demand for the cards, we ran out of them and had to put a pause on them. That said, we hope you love your dash cam, and do let us know in the future if you have any questions.
Great customer service!

Joseph gave a great recommendation on which dashcam was the best for my car. Jonathan was knowledgeable, friendly to talk to, and had the dashcam up and running in no time! Definitely recommend BlackboxMyCar for anyone looking for a dashcam.

Thanks Matthew for leaving a review. We will be sure to let Joseph know that he's awesome :) and Jonathan too! Come back anytime.

VIOFO A129 Pro Duo 4k

VIOFO A129 Pro Duo 4K cam was easy to install. It provides a clear front and back view.

Hi Ernest, you're awesome - thanks for leaving a review!
So far looks GREAT

Have not connected the rear camera yet but the front camera shoots wonderful, clear video, even in the evening with low light. I like a lot of the features on this unit and for the price seems a great deal. I do wish there was an option to just record with no time limit for road trip videos, but it does it's job VERY well and I'm satisfied. Shipping was FAST and product arrived well packed.

Hi Mark, thanks for shopping at BlackboxMyCar. Let us know if you need any help connecting the rear camera, but we're glad to hear that you had a great experience with us!

Viofo a119 v3

Was debating for a while on a dashcam and settled on a Viofo a119v3. This cam was within my budjet, and after reading reviews I decided on this one.
I also read great reviews about blackboxmy car customer service and purchased from them. The camera itself seems to have great options and video quality is bar none...….only had for a week but very satisfied...Thanks Black box!

Hi Yves, thanks for leaving a review. We're glad to hear that our team was able to help you out, and you had such a great time with our support team :) Hope you continue to love your VIOFO - ask us at anytime if you have any questions.
Great for my needs; minor software friction

First let me say that BlackboxMyCar has been fantastic throughout the process of choosing and installing my dash cams. The people behind that chat bubble know what they’re talking about, something I don’t usually expect from first-tier customer support.

Second: Overall I’m very happy with the VIOFO A129 Pro Duo. Video quality is sharp and clear, and it was easy to set up. The front camera is slightly smaller than I’d pictured it, which is nice. I’ve only had it a few weeks, but so far it’s working perfectly. Reliably fires up and starts recording when I get in the car and goes into parking mode when the car is off.

This is my first-ever dash cam and routing the cable through the headliner, A-pillar, etc., was tedious but not particularly difficult. Wiring the cameras into the car’s fusebox was also relatively straightforward, but get the circuit tester if you don’t already have one. It makes identifying always-on vs. ignition-switched a snap.

My only complaints—and these are minor nits—are mostly software issues.

The hardwire kit cable has a cylindrical ferrite bead near the connector, which makes it impossible (in my case) to hide that part of the cable—the bead won’t fit in the seam where I would otherwise stuff it.

Connecting to the camera from the iOS app requires enabling WiFi on the dash cam each time, and stopping the current recording. I’d love to be able to launch the iOS app and have it connect to the camera without having to jump through these extra hoops.

The other oddity that I haven’t really tracked down yet is that recordings using the H.265 codec play fine on my phone, but won’t play correctly when transferred to a computer. On the computer various apps appear to be playing around 1fps (maybe just showing keyframes?). I have yet to find an app that will interpret these files correctly—Final Cut Pro, Premiere, Adobe Media Encoder, QuickTime player—apps that otherwise understand and support H.265. The only way I’ve found to get usable H.265 files from the phone to the computer is to import them into iMovie on the phone and re-export them. (All of this could probably be avoided by setting the camera to use H.264 instead.)

Again, these are minor nits and overall I’m happy with the VIOFO.

Hi Ray, thanks for leaving a review - behind those chat bubbles is a great team who's happy to help :) We're glad you love your VIOFO, and we will pass your feedback over to VIOFO to see what they can do. As for the H.265, unfortunately, that's the downside of the file format. It's great for file sizes, but hard for the computer to encode and play smoothly without some adjustments. That said, we did write a blog recently about it where you can learn more: https://www.blackboxmycar.com/blogs/news/h265-the-good-the-catch-and-the-how Let us know if you have any questions!
