BlackVue is back to captivate us with yet another beautiful specimen: the DR650GW-1CH. This single lens (hence the 1-Channel designation) dashcam, like its predecessor - the DR600GW-HD (discontinued) – is well-crafted and equally well-engineered. Encased in a matte black body, the discreet and compact DR650 perfectly blends in its environment; keeping it away from prying eyes and from being a distraction for the driver. The D650GW-1CH is one of the more stealthy dashcams on the market, ideal for those who desire privacy in their approach to keeping safe from other drivers or individuals encountered on the roads today. The well-designed ergonomic body allows the lens to rotate 360 degrees in the stationary windshield mount, enabling you to position the dashcam per your desires.
The primary difference between this model and the previous DR600GW-HD is the new 2.4MP Sony Exmor CMOS image sensor (vs 2.0MP on the DR600). The 1080p videos and images captured by the Sony image sensor are crisp and detailed, and the video is compressed in .MP4 format for easy uploads. The 129° wide angle lens (103° horizontal, 77° vertical) captures all the necessary details painlessly.
The DR650 gives you the ability to utilize a microSD memory card of 16, 32, 64 or 128GB; and you can perform "One Touch" formatting of the microSD card by simply pressing and holding the WiFi on/off button for more than 10 seconds, presto! No need to use a computer to clear out the protected event recordings which may build up over time, just press and go.
The lack of a screen may put some people off, but the DR650 offers timely voice alerts for the driver (which you can disable individually once you get used to the operation of the dash cam). Also, all the necessary status information is relayed to the driver with the help of simple LED notification lights on the side and back of the DR650GW-1CH. If that wasn’t all, you can download BlackVue’s official app for your iOS or Android based gadgets to view or change configuration settings, stream live from the dashcam, and download the videos effortlessly! Once you've copied a video to your device, the BlackVue app even allows for direct upload to YouTube, for near-instant sharing of that important event captured on video.
The DR650 is constantly monitoring your surroundings; just plug the DR650GW-1CH into the cigarette lighter power and it will record for you seamlessly. DR650’s parking mode works equally well: the dashcam is smart enough to only start recording when the built-in G-sensors detect any haphazard activity (a gentle bump to the vehicle for example), or if motion is detected in front of the lens (someone prowling around the car), therefore preventing you from having to sort through a memory card full of unnecessary recordings.
For parking mode, you either need to plug the DR650 into a cigarette lighter power outlet that is on all the time (even when the car is turned off), or you can opt for the Power Magic Pro which is a BlackVue accessory that quickly integrates with your car's fuse box and will supply constant power to the 650 (while also ensuring your car battery does not drop too low). Get the BlackVue DR650GW-1CH and Power Magic Pro combo for ultimate protection and peace of mind!
We'll throw in a set of FREE fuse taps when you purchase both a BlackVue dash cam (any model) and a Power Magic Pro! These 'add-a-circuit' fuse taps make for installing the Power Magic Pro quick, easy, and painless, with no cutting or splicing of your vehicle wiring. Using fuse taps means no permanent modifications to the vehicle are necessary, keeping your manufacturer's warranty intact. Please specify your fuse type (Mini, Low-profile Mini, Micro2, or ATO/ATC) *OR* vehicle year, make, and model in the order comments if you would like us to include the fuse taps with your order.
The BlackVue DR650GW-1CH manages to make the complete package even sweeter by adding GPS position and speed-logging. This will allow you to accurately track the location and velocity of your vehicle without any effort.
Note: This model includes either a 16GB, 32GB, 64GB or 128GB industrial-grade memory card. You may choose the size above. The Class 10 memory card is provided by BlackVue and is already inside the DR650, ready to go! We recommend sticking with BlackVue memory cards due to their excellent tolerance to high and low temperatures and constant read/write cycles.
The DR650GW-1CH includes FREE priority ground shipping within the continental United States. Expedited shipping may be selected during checkout for an additional fee. International shipping to Canada or Mexico is available on this item.
