Just Released for Spring 2018, the BlackVue DR590W-1CH single-lens dashcam is an affordable, high quality replacement (or upgrade) of the last generation BlackVue DR450-1CH forward-facing dashcam. The DR590W-1CH has exactly the same components as the DR590-1CH, but now with the ability to connect to the camera via WiFi! Hence the “W” designation in the DR590W-1CH name.
Note: despite having WiFi built-in, the DR590W-1CH is not cloud-capable. This means that with the DR590W-1CH, you can check the camera’s live view, easily adjust settings and transfer videos to your phone with the BlackVue app, however, you cannot access your camera Over-the-Cloud like you can do with the BlackVue DR650S, DR750S-1CH or DR750S-2CH.
Our favorite things about the DR590W-1CH
- Excellent price point for the same BlackVue quality and Sony STARVIS Imaging power!
- New “local” WiFi (direct connection) for use with the BlackVue smartphone app
- Still Full HD 1080p recording, at an astounding 60FPS
- Smallest form factor for extremely discrete in-car audio and/or video recording.
- Optional GPS position and speed logging (via an external GPS antenna).
- Voice announcements. Know what your dash cam is doing without needing to look at it.
- Industrial super-capacitor, no lithium battery inside to fail in the heat or cold.
The DR590W-1CH deserves the consideration of business owners and any cost-conscious drivers who may be looking for a reliable and affordable in-car audio and video recording solution. The crisp imaging provided by the Sony STARVIS technology give you a crisp view of your surrounding, day and night, even at highway speeds, and the small size and lack of screen makes the 590W-1CH a good choice for stealthy operation.
Similar to the DR590W-1CH, also available is now the new DR590W-2CH, which includes a separate rear camera for front and rear recording. The DR590W-1CH on this page is designed for front-facing-only video and audio recording.
Note: This model includes either a 16, 32, 64, 128 or 256GB memory card. You may choose the size above. The memory card is provided by BlackVue and can be found in the box, ready to go! While the memory cards are removable and the card slot will accept other brands of memory cards, we strongly suggest the use of only BlackVue memory cards in the BlackVue dashcams. The BlackVue OEM memory cards are industrial-grade and are designed to withstand the extreme high and low temperatures of being inside of hot and cold vehicles day in and day out, and they are also designed to cope with the constant read/write cycles of a high quality dashcam, without fail. To ensure your dashcam is always recording, stick with the most reliable memory cards on the market today!
