The BlackVue computer software allows operation with both Windows and Mac operating systems that is free to download and use. And the Blackvue DR490L-2CH is compatible with BlackVue’s external GPS receiver is included to add speed and location data to your videos at your choosing.
The camera also contains BlackVue’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to incorporate a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) which is activated above a speed set by the user (60, 80 or 100 km/h).
The Blackvue DR490L-2CH represents great value for a dual Full HD camera with low-light functionality and a built‑in touchscreen. It can handle up to 128GB Micro-SD cards and comes fitted with a G-sensor and motion detection for event and parking recording modes. An all‑round great package.
The Blackvue DR490L-2CH is designed to mount in the front and rear windscreens to record audio and video of what is going on in front of and behind your car. With simple plug-and-play operation, you can be safely recording both in front of and behind your car in Full 1080p HD, in a matter of minutes!
Not everybody wants a screen on their dash cam, but if you do, the Blackvue DR490L-2CH is a great option. Having the screen allows you to do things like quickly ensure both your lenses are aimed correctly and are recording, play back video recordings immediately without having to remove the memory card, or easily change a configuration setting right on the dash cam itself.
