BlackVue DR590W-2CH IR [Uber/Taxi Dash Cam]
In early 2019, the South-Korean dash cam manufacturer PITTASOFT came up with their mid-range front+interior dash cam, the BlackVue DR590W-2CH IR. This system is designed with professional drivers in mind: it monitors both the front and the interior of a vehicle, making it ideal for taxi or rideshare drivers. Both channels record in Full HD 1080p, while the interior unit is additionally equipped with two IR (infrared) lights to capture every detail of the cabin, even in pitch black lighting conditions.
In terms of size, it's also one of the most attractive, compact and easy to install rideshare dash cams available on the market. The "W" letter in its name stands for "Wi-Fi" which is an excellent feature as it allows the user to playback/download video footage and change settings directly via their smartphone. The Sony STARVIS™ image sensor that equips the front camera delivers an outstanding low-light performance. Additionally, it features Night Vision, further enhancing details in dark surroundings.
Just like the other BlackVue products, the DR590W IR has a parking recording support, allowing for around the clock protection for customers and their vehicles. Matching the camera with either the Power Magic Pro or a Back Up Battery will allow the DR590W-2CH IR to trigger recording with motion detection as well as impact detection so that protection will be readily available for the vehicle while the owner is away.
Overall, this product features all the functionality required from a mid-end dash cam while following the signature BlackVue design and build quality. Discreet yet advanced, this dash cam sitting in an affordable price range allowing for customization in terms of adding the optional GPS Receiver and compatible with multiple Parking Recording options should you require it.
