    Is the BlackVue DR900S-2CH the best Dashcam currently on the market?
    Apparently it uses a SONY STARVIS Sensor, but does anyone know specifically what sensor type it is?

    After having two vehicles vandalized recently, I would ideally like a 2-channel system with parking mode.
    I'd like to get the external battery pack for it, but they can be quite expensive.

    B-112: $154 12 hours run-time
    B-124: $300 24 hours run-time

    Should I bother with a battery pack, or just hard-wire it? Thoughts?
    Any different recommendations for quality dash-cams with parking mode?

    Thanks.

    I would hard wire it. You don't want to mess with a battery pack. Waste of time and money. Also the 12 hour run-time is sufficient unless money is no object to you. I had 24 hour run time and just found myself paying double when I didn't need to.

    There have been overheating issues with the DR900 in parking mode. This usually occurs in temps in the low 80s or higher.

    I have a DR750 and had it professionally hardwired. I've had it for almost a year and it's been reliable. I do not use the cloud feature.

    From what I read, I thought DR900 handles heat better than DR750. Is this not the case?

    Isn't DR900 better than DR750?

    Looking at buying one of these.

    How long does it last when hard-wired, with no battery backup & is there a risk of car battery being drained?

    We recently had two DR-900 installed in our two Lexus GXs. They were professionally installed with the battery backup, model B-112. Total price for both cars $1400.00
    We also had the DR-750ir installed in a Toyota 4Runner that our kid drives. It great for watching what they are doing when behind the wheel. Total price installed $350.00

    I have been using BlackVue DR650GW-2CH with a MagicBox to prevent battery from dying and need to admin this is an amazing piece of hardware.

    Spot on "Marine Sniper 62". It is well worth spending the extra money to do it right on professional hard wiring and battery back up. $1400 is fair price for 2 cars.
