Installed a BlackVue DR 750S-2CH IR

After watching several videos on the events dash cams captured, I got hooked and decided I needed to have one of my own. I researched several different options on Blackboxmycar.com and decided a BlackVue camera was the way to go. I like the design similarities of their cameras, allowing them to use the same mounts. Originally I ordered the BlackVue DR590W-2CH IR but after watching clips from the 30fps vs 60fps, I decided to upgrade to the 750S-2CH IR before I even received the 590. Because I wanted a very discreet setup, I purchased a Blendmount BlackVue holder to avoid mounting directly on the windshield. I wired the unit up using the Power Magic Pro hardwiring kit and enabled parking mode so that I can record events while the vehicle is parked. Mounting the rear facing camera was challenging because of the headliner design but after trying a couple different options I decided to mount it at the top of the windshield to the right of the lane keep assist/auto windshield auto housing. I used blackout stickers to cover all the script on cameras to make it more discreet. I'm extremely happy with the BlackVue setup as the video quality is terrific along with a great app to go with it. I also hardwired my Escort radar while i was at it. I'm going to add some expandable braided sleeving go make the setup a little cleaner.

I plan to buy and install in my wife 2017 MDX. I already had GOLUK T3 but that thing seem like it's missing days when view.
For your "Power Magic Pro", what switch do you use? Please see picture. Thanks

I didnít tap a fuse for the Escort, I hardwired it into the rear view mirror auto dimming wire harness. Two less wires to run to the fuse box.

I used the 12V setting with the infinity recording setting. Initially I used the 12.5V setting but after reading more about the required startup voltage, I felt confident changing it to a 12V cut off.

I'm still decide the purpose of y getting a rear cam.

So this is your setting: 1 up, 2,3,4,5 down = 12V and Infinity recording

I wanted to be able to record the interior of the vehicle as well as the rear of the vehicle. While none of my vehicles have ever been broken into, *knock on wood, I wanted to have as much coverage as possible with 2 cameras. The IR inside camera captures great quality video even in complete darkness. As far as my current settings, that's correct. Let me know if you have any additional questions, I'll be happy to help.
