Ships from and sold by Blackboxmycar. I'd say it's legit.

Do you know by chance if this dash cam will go on sell for the prime day? If not, I'll just place the order now.

So it’s a pretty damn good deal right?
I would say so. I've never seen this low price. On top of that you can apply 5% coupon that drops the price even lower.

I may get in on this as well, looking to upgrade from a BV DR590(1ch). Quick question on memory cards, will a 256GB SD card work with the DR900?. I'm guessing yes as it does on some of the other models (DR750) but just wanted to confirm.

Yep, I've been running a 256gb card in my 900 for a while now with no issues. :)

Vortex, can you please help me out with something? I don't want to create a whole new thread just for this but I own Blackvue b-124 battery pack and recently kept getting "Low voltage warning" and the camera kept shutting down. It won't allow the battery to charge. Any reason why?

Yeah, 256 gb is usable. Which sd card you will be using?

What are you wired into for power? Is the battery set to charge at 5v or 9v? I’ve seen intermittent low voltage errors as my alternator changes in voltage, but it still otherwise charges.

I hard wired it to 20 amp fuse (Cigarette lighter). "Is the battery set to charge at 5v or 9v? " - Not sure what this means cause I didn't had to set anything manually. On top of that, my battery dying so fast too. Please help.

There’s a switch on the battery that says low or high. If it’s wired into a cig lighter, it should be set to low. If it’s hardwired and can pull at least 9amps (oops sorry, I meant amps, not volts), you can set it to high.

As for dying quickly, I don’t know. You should get 16-24 hours of record time on a fully charged battery, depending on your camera selection and settings.

How much record time do you get for a full charge?

Even though it's hard wired into the fuse box, I should still switch it to "Cigarette" instead of "Hardwire"?

If it’s hardwired and the fuse is 10A or larger like your is, set it to hardwire.

That's the problem I'm facing. Even though it's configured correctly and all, I still receive "Low voltage warning." It never happened before. It started doing it recently. Anyways, thank you for your time and trying to help me.

Have you taken a multimeter to your fuse box and verified the voltage that it’s running? Just because it has an automotive style fuse doesn’t mean it’s 12V, and just because it’s 12V doesn’t mean it’s necessarily getting the voltage you would expect (~14 while the car is running).

Found the issue. The fuse for the dashcams left leg is broken and not connected. So it can't draw as much power its supposed to. I can just go to Autozone or any car place and buy the fuse and replace it, right?

That's...odd. But yes, take the fuse with you when you go in, and you should be able to match it. Probably an ATO-Mini style.
