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.

Professional and friendly

Everyone was friendly and professional and the purchase and installation of my thinkware q800 pro and cellink neo was seamless. Dennon the installer took great care and pride in ensuring everything was just right. He knew how to treat my 911. Completely satisfied.

Hello Rob, thank you for taking the time to send us a review and we will definitely pass it on to Dennon!

Nice features, grainy footage

This review is about the product, NOT the supplier. The camera seems to be well made and has very nice features. I didn't need a top grade camera on my work truck so I bought this with the coupon code from Vortex Radar. My other vehicle has a BlackVue DR900S. That system is great and crystal clear but overheats super easy. This Q800 pro has pretty poor low light footage but I knew this and I usually work in daylight anyway. I am looking and researching a replacement for a 3rd vehicle but after this purchase, I am holding out for a 4k model with decent low light capabilities. Black Box My Car in itself was great with coupons available and fast shipping, no complaints at all!

Hi Robert, thank you for leaving the review. We do have a heatsink solution that we can offer you in regards to your BlackVue DR900S-2CH, and as far as we know too, BlackVue has released new firmware very recently that specifically addressed this overheating issue. If you email us at info@blackboxmycar.com or live chat with us on our website, we will get to the bottom of this with you. We're glad to hear that the Q800PRO has worked out for you. Did you update to the newest firmware by any chance? Thinkware released this about 2 weeks ago and has drastically improved the video quality as a result. If you're holding out for a 4K model for your 3rd vehicle, we would recommend looking at the Thinkware U1000 or the VIOFO A129 Pro Duo. They both have great video quality with low light capabilities that you are potentially looking for. Please let us know if you have any further questions and we'll make sure you get what you're looking for. Thanks for leaving a review!

Fantastic service!

BlackBoxMyCar was absolutely fantastic to work with! The rocket shipping was amazing and my two VIOFO A119 V3 dash cams are wrapped and under the Christmas tree! I'm certain they will be enjoyed. Thanks so much and keep up the exceptional customer service. Merry Christmas!!!

Hello Chad, thanks for leaving a review! And I am sure somebody's going to be really happy with their presents this Christmas! Happy Holidays!
Great dash cam

Amazing video quality with lots of features. Still need to install the hard wiring kit to utilize all the parking mode features, but so far i'm loving it.

Hello James, thanks for leaving us a review! The U1000 is an amazing dash cam with tons of great features. If you have questions about the installation or need tips, let us know - you can email, call or even Live Chat us! Our dash cam experts and technicians are always here to help!
Excellent! 2nd time installing any electronics in my car(s)

I bought the Essential Install Package to install my Thinkware 1000 2-channel in my Ford F-150. I had only one previous experience of trying to install electronic equipment in a vehicle. The Essential Install Package is perfect and easy to use. Having no experience in running wires and hard-wiring connections to OEM fuse panels the kit made it easy. I completed my entire install in less than 2 hours. With the experience now I could probably reduce that time by nearly 50%.

Hello Larry, thank you for leaving us a review and we are glad the Essential Install Package helped!
Initial review: A-OK.

I bought this after testing out a budget Rove R2-4k LCD dash cam that sent me running for a better quality high-end unit. By that comparison standard, this DR900S-2ch is mind blowing.

Setup was particularly easy -- well, wiring can be a work-out as with all models, especially a rear-camera going into a hatch back -- but the moment I plugged it in, it all started working. I especially like the audio prompts, and the indicator light on the rear window camera; one glance in the rear view mirror and I know it's working, and yet not distracting. (the rear camera is very small)

I also love how incredibly secure the mounting is. My cheaper Rove unit mount was quite flimsy.

The power cables were also impressive -- with plugs that small, I was afraid they'd dislodge easily, but the design of the plugs are quite secure.

More time will tell, but after about two weeks now I have no complaints. I will likely buy a second 2ch unit soon.

Hello John, thanks for the review. Did you know that the BlackVue DR900S-2CH is what we use in our company car, too? It's one of our all-time favourite dash cams. We are confident that the more you use the DR900S, the more you'll fall in love with all the other features, too! We are always here in case you have any questions!
Blackboxmycar and Viofo a129 duo

Wanting a dash cam, I started my quest by googling and youtubing. Blackboxmycar seemed to be the most popular recommendation. Visiting the website, watching their videos, reading reviews and looking thru the FAQs, I was ready and narrowed my option down too two cameras. Bewtween Jordan and Katrina, they finished my education and answered questions that I had confusion with - and they made it clear and easy to understand. The process of ordering was simple and sweet. All the way from receiving the Viofo camera, setting it up and post-purchase questions - what a great experience. Thank you! Watching the install videos made it a breeze. Its unfortunate that I do not use facebook, twitter, googlesomethanrathernutter, or else I would use those review options too. So Im glad you reached out with a web option!
I love this cam!

Hello Dean, thank you for taking the time to send us a review and we are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at BlackboxMyCar! We are always here for our customers so if you ever need help or have questions about your dash cam, feel free to email, call or Live Chat with us!
Happy Customer

I’m happy with their service. Professional and helpful.

Hello Becky, thank you for your review!
Great but...

I ordered four Viofo A119 with four CPL. Unfortunately I was charged $25 each for the filters even though the cost on the website is $20.

Hi Mel, thank you for leaving a review. Unfortunately, the reason why you were charged $25 for each is that that is the price of the items when purchased separately. When they are purchased as a bundle, customers will receive bundle pricing, making the CPL filter $20. Thank you for leaving a review!
BBMC Experience

I began looking into dashcams about a month ago and came across a video interview between Alex and Vortex Radar. During my research it became evident that BBMC was the leading re-seller in Canada and maybe in the USA. Their pricing was competitive. I posed a few pre-purchase enquiries to BBMC. They responded quickly and in an understandable way. Ultimately, I made an on-line purchase that was delivered fast with great tracking. As it turned out, I made a mistake with my order and it was fixed without delay. Dashcam was self installed now with all wires hidden and looking good. Thanks, BBMC. You know how to provide a great on-line experience.

(BlackVue DR900S-2CH) Amazing Product & magnificent Service !

I recently purchased a Blackvue 2ch DR-900s from BlackBoxMyCar and I am very happy with this camera so far. I spoke with a representative from the live chat named Paul and he was very helpful in setting me up with everything i needed to hard wire this unit. I received my full setup in less than a week and it was packaged very nicely. I realized when i went to wire it into my vehicle the fuse taps i received were the wrong one's. So i contact BlackBoxMyCar support and spoke to Paul who i believe was the same person i spoke to the first time and he and the team @BlackBoxMyCar was very helpful and fast at responding to my messages and ensured me they would send out the correct fuse taps which i received 2 days after they were shipped out. I Would highly recommend BlackBoxMyCar for anything you need !

Hello Joseph, thank you for taking the time to send us a review and we will definitely pass it on to Paul.
