We have had several break ins in our parking garage.

The motion sensor when parked sounds perfect to catch the POS!

Yep that's the main reason I got a blackvue for when my car is parked at work, among the whist driving features. Motion detection works great when there's movement or similar on both the front or rear camera, I can't for the life of me get the "impact" detection to work, even with max sensitivity on the shock detection whilst parked.

Sorry old thread to be revive. I've just bought a Blackvue DR650GW-2CH But seems like the whole point of getting full HD is to be able to read the number plate. But seems like I can't see the number place when driving? Yes this means also pause the video and zoom in. unless it comes to a complete stop. Anyone have this issue? or any I expecting too much??

Check your running it on the highest quality, there's an option on the blackvue app for res and frame rate, check they are on the highest.

Mine is fine, while I probably couldn't identify a plate at 20-30+ meters inside that distance is fine, figure anything that far away isn't going to be an issue to my car anyway.

The camera bitrate has a big influence on this, particularly for night time driving. If the image is grainy when on the move this will be a contributing factor. I agree if you can't read the plate then there is limited value in having the camera.

Re your expectations - While BlackVue is popular (particularly in Australia), they have never been held in the highest regard for bitrate/overall quality and there are much better cameras out there these days.

Another tip for you. The camera records audio. If you are involved in, or witness to, a camera-worthy incident, read the rego plate out loud. If later review of the footage shows the plate to be unreadable, you will still be able to match your reading of the number with a vehicle description or a partial plate.

This was super helpful even thought it was from a few years ago. Saved me from having to test all of the circuits. Ended up using number 8 to coincide with the 12 volt outlet for the switchable power.

So, I fitted a Blackvue 650 with front and rear camera to the wifes VW Tiguan.
One month later she is parked nose in to a brick wall in an underground car park in Sydney and comes back to the car and there blue gooey stuff on the bonnet and guard.

She reports it to the car park security and comes home.

By then the paint is lifting. Its paint stripper.

Pull the Blackvue memory card and download the footage. The rear camera clearly shows the criminals car coming down the ramp, driving up to her car. The front camera gives a perfect view of his face as he pours the paint stripper on the bonnet. repair price was $2500.

I gave the footage to the Police, it took 6 months to catch up with him. He is having a government sponsored holiday and the insurance company want the money back that they paid for repairs.
