The BlackVue DR450 is an entry-level in-car camera device with a front facing camera for installing inside you car. This BlackVue is a great camera for capturing events in the road for peace of mind and for documentation for insurance purposes. The front camera records in Full HD at a resolution of 1080p at 30FPS. There is also an optional GPS module you can buy making it possible to record GPS locational information. The recording format is MP4, which is compatible with all computers.

If you would like a larger system with an LCD touch screen whereby you can watch videos on the unit itself we recommend buying the BlackVue DR750LW-2CH instead which also includes all the features of the DR450-1CH and more.

If you want a Blackvue with an Infra Red rear camera for better night vision capabilities then we recommend buying the BlackVue DR650 2CH IR.
