The DR490 is the perfect option for those who want a full HD camera system at a reasonable price. This camera was designed to focus on high quality video recording and a discreet design, which is why it does not feature built-in Wi-Fi. An additional GPS antenna is available for those who want speed and location data overlaid on their footage.

BlackVue have used the Sony STARVIS sensor in both the front and rear cameras, this is a top of the range image sensor and helps the BlackVue DR490 capture full HD video recording @ 30FPS. The use of this sensor also ensures that the footage captured is clear, even in low-light conditions.

Alongside the improved video quality, the BlackVue continuous to have three recording modes- Event, Parking and Continuous. The camera will automatically switch between these modes depending on what is happening around the vehicle. If you have your camera hard-wired using the power magic pro then it will go into parking mode once there has been no motion for 5 minutes. It will then only save video files if motion or an impact has been detected.

The BlackVue DR490-2Ch comes with a 16GB microSD card as standard, however you can increase this up to an 128GB card to store longer amounts of footage.
