I'm over here in the UK, the Blackvue 750 isn't released here yet - supposed to be anytime now.
Waiting till I can get it as I believe its a big step forward on the 650.
Can someone other side of the pond confirm its released over there ?
Hi Supermacken,

I received notification yesterday of the DR750s-2ch availability from blackvuehd.co.uk.

I’m considering same for mine when it arrives in Dec...that or the Thinkware F800

Are there any members who have managed to do a 1st class install on a rear view camera that can maybe explain or show photos as to how they got round concealing the cable and its route into the vehicle.
Apparently I'm informed that the FPace has a sealed 1 piece rear door (think that's what they meant) which makes things very difficult.

HI there Supermackem..... Why don't you look at the first pages of this thread where I posted some pictures of how I did my installation - Or have you and suggesting that it's not first class? :)

RaVolVor,

I'm planing a similar install with a BlackVue DR750S-2CH. What fuses did you end up using for permanent live and switched (ignition) live ?

I have a couple of fuse taps that I'm hoping to slot into the passenger fuse compartment !

Currently my cam is using a 12v socket. The battery protector failed so it's not hard wired. I am beginning to think the whole of the front fuse box shuts down 10 minutes after the car is locked. So right now I can't help. Anyone else know which fuse if any are permanently live?

Had a Blackvue 750 2ch installed on Friday but the rear camera is causing DAB signal issues. As soon as I disconnect the rear cam all is fine again. I'll be getting back in touch with the installer, but wondered if anyone else has similar issues, or can recommend a cable run for the rear cam which doesn't kill the DAB reception?

I just went from the front cam (mounted behind rear view mirror) across front of windscreen (tucked into headlining) then across tops of doors and down around the seatbelt on driver side and through roof lining to rear hatch hinge, through rubber tubing to hatch and out to rear cam mounted on centre top of rear glass !

I had a blackvue 750 2ch with power magic pro professionally installed recently. All wires hidden, no DAB issues. I did have the rear camera installed just above bottom of screen to get around the problem others have mentioned about the top being a sealed unit which it is. I quite liked the idea of being bottom of screen, not only do I have no wires showing anywhere with the installation but also the rear camera & cabling is as far away as it could be from the cars radio/satelite receiver on roof which greatly reduces DAB inteference or in my case I don't have any at all. Who did your installation?

That's exactly how/where my installers mounted my rear. Strange that you're not seeing issues. Did you go through the left or right tubing? Also, did you use any ferrite cores to shield the cable at all?
