I don't know what the Massdrop price was since it ended, but these cameras are routinely sold at www.blackboxmycar.com at or below the deals I've seen in the past. Lots of very good video reviews for the camera there too. I think they have some sort of deal with the manufacturer since they seem to promote this brand over most of the others they sell.I ended up finding this dashcam on Massdrop, ordered it.
I like it *a lot*. A little less than the Blackview (~$250) with an almost identical feature set. Even the optional GPS add-on mount works on my P85D coated windshield. The mobile app is really well designed and works very well over wi-fi.
Going back to the thread that started it all for me I managed to install the camera fairly easily following the youtube videos, thanks guys.
Now, I have a question. I got in my car today and the charming voice said: An impact was detected during parking mode". All gret, but how do I find the exact moment this happened ? I have hundreds of video files on my sd card. m I supposed to look at all of them one by one ?
We are located in Los Angeles area so let us know if you would like a professional installation on your Blackvue dash cams. In addition to ordering the blackvue, I also recommend the Power Magic Pro that will enable the camera to remain on while the car is off. This enables the Blackvue to record in Parking Mode and capture any events via motion detection or G-shock while your vehicle is parked.
