For those looking for a more complete picture of the road around them, the BlackVue DR550-GW offers the ultimate coverage with a full HD 1080p front-facing camera as well as a smaller unit delivering HD 720p video that can be positioned to capture activity at the rear or inside the vehicle. Once positioned, the cameras connect by a discreet AV cable and simultaneously record action using SONY Exmor™ CMOS sensors which can be viewed on the mobile app or via the BlackVue software using smart picture-in-picture (PiP) technology.
Viewing videos on the BlackVue software enables you to manage your videos easily and efficiently while also accessing GPS and G-shock data captured to accompany the video footage offering a more complete picture of the events surrounding any incidents. This additional detail can be invaluable in establishing the facts necessary to prove your innocence if a claim or accusation is made against you.
The DR-550GW has three main recording modes and switches dynamically between them as required. When it detects movement, or your ignition being activated, it enters normal recording mode and records your on-the-road activity continuously. However, if the internal G-shock sensor detects any sudden or severe movement, such as a collision or evasive manoeuvre, a video file is created which, when viewed, gives the moments before, during and after the incident. Also, if your vehicle is stationary for a short time, the camera will automatically enter parking mode and monitor movement around your vehicle delivering peace-of-mind even when you're away from your vehicle.
Note: For parking mode to be effective over sustained periods the camera requires a continuous electrical feed while the ignition is turned off. Add the BlackVue Power Magic if required.

- Great build quality
Reviewed by angela
Just got it today and it's a lovely piece of kit. the build quality is amazing and it's easy to setup, apart from it doesn't tell you the wifi password in the instructions so I had to Google it. I'll write again once i've had chance to use it properly but first impressions are that it's fantastic - very pleased so far.
Car Camera Shop - Thanks for the review Angela. We're glad you're happy with the camera so far and please let us know how you get on with it. For reference, the default BlackVue DR550 wifi password is "blackvue".
- Great bit of kit

I've installed the BlackVue 550 twin cameras in my 4x4 and the cable from the rear camera to the front camera was easily long enough. The video quality is amazing from both cameras and the best bit is that it's wifi enabled so you can download the video to your home PC and even watch the videos back on my android phone with the BlackVue app.
