cr300 is way better than cr 200. They can't beat the price of blackvue 400dr hd.

Yes to all. You can turn all those features off when you connect the device to computer.

Hi

i'm interested in the blackvue camera. Is it constantly recording and automatically overwritethe data on the card?

From what I see, it only appears to start recording based on actual events (G mode, impact or heavy acceleration or braking).

Let me know; I want one who is recording all the time.

Yes it records all the time and then rewrites. You can set the intervals and if it records all the time or only while in motion. They do recommend formatting the SD card once a week or month? I forget what the manual says. I've formatted it once in 2 months.

Perfect, that's what I wanted to hear.

Is the hardwire kit included or is it part of the failsafe kit at $50?

it is an additional $50 for the hardwire kit. i would say its worth it to get the kit from the group buy cause the install is much cleaner than having the wire dangling down into the cig lighter area

Looked like a nice clean install with no splicing or connecting to an existing wire. Looked almost like a plug and play as there's no modification done really.

I'd prob be in but like to see the price lower first

Yes, thats why I'm getting the CR300. With the 20+ price and the good video quality to record tracking/autox, no-brainer for me.

Probably won't happen You have to remember that these prices include HST (tax).

You can fix those issues with the setting from your computer. The constant updates from the company will also fix the problem.

DR380 is from Blackvue. It is the upgraded version of DR350. Unfortunately, DR380 is only in Korean.

Is it easy to update ?
Do you have any hardwire video for a bmw e90 ?
Might battery be dead if we left it connected, especially in QC during winter ?

Thanks,

Yes, they are very easy to update. All you need to do is to go to http://www.blackvue.com/en/main/main.asp and download the latest version

BMW E9x video is coming up soon. (Around June 4th)

The point of using the power kit is to save the car battery. If the battery falls below 11.8V the power kit will turn itself off.

EVERYONE- please start paying the deposits now. It seems we'll have 20 people very soon and Blackboxmycar needs those deposits in before he ships out/delivers the cameras!! You can either pay with VISA/Mastercard here: http://www.blackboxmycar.com/categor...id_category=12 OR pay with Paypal (PM Blackboxmycar for his paypal email). Locals - you can pay in person.

ps. when you pay with VISA at blackboxmycar.com, there's a comment section when checking out so write your user ID name there.
