Good Upgrade From Previous Dash Cam

I got this with the Power Magic Pro and got it installed professionally. It is a very good lightweight camera, and it is easy to mount and unmount. Some one earlier spoke about the blinking lights when can customize all those settings, the first thing I did was remove the blinking lights. I don't want people attracted to the fact that I have a camera. I recommend getting a 32 gig micro sd card. I also recommend setting the recording to 30 fps, and change event settings and motion detection to insensitive, otherwise, it ends up recording way too much video. The sound isn't very good, but I think it is because the camera is setup behind my rear view mirror so the sound is muffled a bit...but I got this for video, not for sound. This is a very customizable camera and I am pretty happy with it. There is a GPS attachment available out there too. That will track time, position, and speed.

expected more

I bought this based on the quality I expect from an expensive camera like this. I own a Cyclops as well and I must tell you that this unit isn't any better than the much less expensive Cyclops.

good entry level, step to 650 for more features

This was my first dashcam, I bought it for about $[price] last year. I have since handed this down to my kid to use, and now i'm using the new 650 2ch model which is really nice to use with the wifi. Blackvue hasn't let me down yet! no issues with either camera, and both are me lol

Nice design...but

I bought this dash cam and Thinkware (H50) dash cam for my two cars. This is more expansive than H50. The design is nice and it is of better quality, but the image and video quality is worse than H50. I compared both on my computer after recording day and night driving for each. This one does not seem to be able to record plate numbers at night. H50, although it records at 720p produces clearer image and video from which I can read plate numbers of other cars. Probably this is because it DOES NOT use Sony sensors that higher models of Blackvue use. If you read carefully, the higher models of Blackvue use Sony sensors. I would not recommend this model.

DR-3500 = Too Many Glitches

This camera has too many glitches. First, with Mac there is no way to set the time. Research it on line,it just can't be done with Mac's on this 3500 model. Second, the very bright LED blue and red record lights blink all the time. Even with the camera hidden behind the rear view mirror, they reflect back off your windshield back at you constantly blinking. You can turn these two lights off, but then you have no idea if the unit is recording which isn't practical when using a car camera. Lights should be dim, non distracting and not be blinking constantly. Lastly, the park mode doesn't work unless you hard wire the camera into your cars electrical. Forget it, too many issues with this camera... ended up returning it.

a steal under $200

For under $200 this dashcam is a steal in terms of overall image quality and functionality. You need to pay closer to $300 in a garmin or thinkware to get the same image quality and really...isn't that what these things are all about? catching the unfortunate incidents clearly!? If you want a good dashcam that gets the job done efficiently and easily this is one of the most simple to use and set up. I have a Mac computer and works great. I'll look at getting a WiFi model with 2 cameras (front/back) later maybe and give this one to my daughter when she goes to school...assuming it lasts. But they said it comes with a 1 year replacement warranty over the counter which is nice. so far so good.

install it!

replaced my Garmin as it was very big on the windsheild and i have a small car...this works great, my bf just installed it with the power magic. comes as advertised! overall image quality is better than Garmin, and the MAC viewer on the PC is much more user friendly compared to the Garmin. didn't even need my BF after the install, ha

great product

easy to install, however unsure if I will ever be able to remove the sticky double sided tape between the camera and the windshield. aside from that, you plug the thing into your lighter to give it juice. it comes with a 16GB mini SD but it supports a 32GB if you want to go get it yourself. the mini SD continuously writes over itself once it's reached the maximum storage which is good so you don't have to take it out ever, until you get in an accident and want to hand over the footage to the police, for example. if you do decide to take the mini SD out, plug into the USB reader-adapter, you'll see that all files are stored in 1 miniute intervals, with options for every 2 or 3 minutes. this cannot be changed for any longer but it's good because it allows you to locate footage easier. When you start up the dash cam for the first time it basically configures itself and then is ready to go. the clarity of the video captured is amazing. it's a goPRO for your car. you can easily turn off the audio from the inside so all of your conversations in the car aren't recorded. at night the dash cam flashes a fairly bright blue and red which I haven't learned how to turn off yet (it's discreet, no one thinks a cop is behind them) but as the driver you will definitely notice it. for the peace of mind this product offers with increasingly erratic drivers all around us, it's a good thing to add to your car. you might even notice YOU start driving in a more behaved manner as well.

Really good quality

It has really good video quailty for dag and night (used it on commercial truck) Cons: No screen so have to fix the mount permanently, 32GB max doesn't store much video may be about 6-8HR max. Overall: its awesome! Can't beat it on sale price

  • from Scarborough, ON

awesome device for the price

this dashcam is awesome, got it on sale and was totally worth the price paid. I feel protected and some peace of mind someone can't scam me during those difficult incidences. Pros: - Sleek-looking (very modern) - Small (great for hiding) - Easy to use (hook it up and you're good to go) - Decent Memory card size (16GB) included - Price - Audio will tell you when its recording, when its powering off and when voice recording is on or off - no GPS, so it won't record your speed and location (its good in those incidences when its your fault) - video quality is very good Cons: - wish it included wifi - recommended mobile app sucks with this model (probably better with higher models) - no GPS, when its not your fault, you want your location tracked
