Building on the success of the discreet and affordable DR590W-2CH IR model, the new DR590X-2CH IR is the next iteration of the DR590 series. This system is designed with professional drivers in mind: it monitors both the front and the interior of a vehicle, making it ideal for the taxi, Uber 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.

Parking Recording by Motion Detection is a feature that appeals to many BlackVue customers. Not only is the new DR590X compatible with the existing Power Magic Pro and Battery Packs, it also can be used with the included BlackVue 3-pin Hardwire Cable which is the most affordable way of using Parking Recording (relies on your car's battery). All in all, regardless of what Parking Recording Add-on you choose, while the power lasts, the DR590X will trigger recording based on motion or impact detection. This footage will be stored on the memory card and can be reviewed later, just like CCTV.

In terms of size, it's also one of the most attractive and smallest front dash cams available which makes it easy to install. Featuring a built-in Wi-Fi module, this model allows you to playback/download video footage and change settings directly using your 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 inside the vehicle in dark surroundings.

Overall, this product features all of the functionality required from a mid-end dash cam while following the signature BlackVue design and build quality. Discreet yet advanced, this dash cam sits 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 surveillance while parked.

Key Features

  • With the front camera’s Sony STARVIS™ imaging sensor, you get awesome image clarity day and night.
  • The interior Full HD camera features two infrared lights for enhanced video quality in low light conditions, perfect for rideshare drivers.
  • The powerful HiSilicon Hi3559 Processor allows for 12 Megabits (front) and 10 Megabits (interior) video for the best quality.
  • Built-in direct Wi-Fi allows you to view saved footage and change settings of your dash cam from a smartphone (within a 10-15 metre range).
  • Protect yourself from hit-and-run accidents while your car is parked with motion-activated Parking Mode (requires a Power Management Device).
  • The GPS Receiver (optional) logs your vehicle’s location, speed and current time so you can later visualize its position on the map.
  • Based on supercapacitors, with the max operating temperature of 70°C and high-temperature cut-off, this camera works well in New Zealand summer.
  • Following BlackVue's signature tube-shaped design, the DR590X is smaller and lighter compared to the other BlackVue products which makes it one of the most discreet and stealthy models on the market.
