I’m running the Viofo A119S in both of our cars. Awesome low light and no problems thus far. They are 110 bucks a piece.
My blackvue is hooked up directly to the fuse panel with add a circuits. I have a switch in the glovebox called a power magic pro that lets me use it for parking mode if I’m running into a store or something. It cuts power to the camera when battery voltage dips below a certain level. To use parking mode long term you really need an external battery pack so you don’t kill the cars battery.Great suggestions. I am pleasantly surprised by the feedback on here.
I feel like asking has anyone spliced the power to the camera into the mirror harness?
How is everyone powering up their cameras?
I think the dual cam is worth it. A lot of shit happens behind you as well. That battery is big bucks. The power magic pro was like $30.For those of you with the Blackvue and power magic pro, [MENTION=102]DanJoy[/MENTION] [MENTION=5709]rdsnake[/MENTION]
How hard was the install? It is much cheaper than the power magic battery.
Is the dual channel worth the extra coin? I am replacing my Viofo A119S as they want me to ship it back to China and its not worth it. This time, I am going big or going home as they say. I'm currently about to buy the 750S 1-channel and later on getting the magic battery back for park mode. I don't want to hardwire as my durango has a lot of electronics and a few guys I've seen on the forums post, the electronics in the durango are super sensitive and I don't want to screw with anything.
Thanks for the input, and sorry if this is a thread derail.
I heard those Lexar cards are junk. Everything I've read points to Transcend or Sandisk high endurance cards are the hot ticket for dash cams. Unfortunately, they only make those in 64GB. I wanted a 128 GB for my dual cam setup to record a full 11 hours on one write. Went with a Samsung EVO card. We'll see how long it last.I killed a Lexar card made for gopros and dashcams on its first rewrite. Still need to send it in for RMA.
I was recommended Samsung over Sandisk...so far it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference.I heard those Lexar cards are junk.
