The newly released (Fall 2016) BlackVue DR650S-1CH is BlackVue's best single-lens dash cam yet! The DR650S-1CH (one channel, forward-facing) is the next evolution of the rock-solid DR650GW-1CH, with a few important upgrades. To learn more, please read on!
You may already be aware of this fact, but if you're not, we will state it again: BlackVue's DR650 series of dashcams is far superior to other options. We challenge you to identify a comparable dashcam that films beautiful wide-angle full-HD 1080p videos (with audio), has GPS speed and position logging built in, will accept up to a 128gb memory card, and can be accessed via local WiFi or remotely via the Cloud (from literally anywhere you have service for your smartphone), and also is discreet and beautifully designed and well-constructed.There's simply nothing else like the BlackVue DR650S dashcams available on the market today, period. While other brands try to play catch up, BlackVue continually raises the bar!
The primary improvements to the DR650S-1CH when compared to the original DR650GW-1CH are:
- Increased video quality
- Improved Cloud operations/performance
- Improved voice announcements
- Improved audio quality
The DR650S-1CH still uses the incredible 2.4MP Sony Exmor CMOS image sensor, although the video bitrate has been increased to pack even more quality into the videos. The 1080p video captured by the Sony image sensor is crisp and detailed, and the video is smartly compressed in .MP4 format for manageable file sizes and easy uploads. The 129° wide angle lens (103° horizontal, 77° vertical) captures everything in front of your vehicle without missing a single detail.
Of course, one of our favorite things about the BlackVue dashcams remains their incredible design: BlackVue has made their dashcams as small and stealthy as possible. We love showing our customers how these cameras easily tuck up and out of the way, usually being mounted on the front windshield in front of the rear view mirror. This way, the dashcam does not obstruct the view of the driver, and looks like a factory-installed accessory in just about any vehicle! Check out a few examples of BlackVue dashcams we have installed in customer vehicles in our dashcam installation photo galleries (link will open in a new window). You can quickly see how these cameras do not attract unwanted attention from thieves who may be looking for valuables left out in the open in your vehicle.
You may be worried about the lack of a screen on the DR650S-1CH, but the DR650S offers voice alerts for the driver to let you know that the dashcam is recording and when it is turning on or off. You can disable these voice announcements later once you get used to the operation of the DR650S dash cam. Also, BlackVue provides LED status lights to convey the necessary mode information to the driver, on the side and back of the DR650S-1CH. Furthermore, you can download BlackVue’s official app for your iPhone or Android phoneto connect to the 650S wirelessly, and then 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.
We do need to tell you a little bit more about the BlackVue-Over-the-Cloud features and functionality. In essence, as long as you have a WiFi hotspot signal available in your vehicle (it can be built-in such as GM's OnStar 4G/LTE, or via a mobile hotspot device from Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc), you will have remote access to your dashcam! Peek at the live view from the camera, see where your vehicle is or how fast it may be going, receive notifications of movement or motion, and more. Amazing stuff! Check out our blog post (link coming soon) to learn more about this fantastic and innovative feature available on the new BlackVue DR650S Over-the-Cloud service.
The DR650S-1CH includes either a factory-installed 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB memory card. You may choose the BlackVue microSD memory card size above. The memory card is provided by BlackVue and is already installed inside the DR650S, ready to go! We are unable to sell the DR650S-1CH without a memory card, as they are pre-installed by BlackVue.
