Technically, the unit seems to be very well built and generally operates as advertised. For some reason, the Wi-Fi on my unit is intermittent.
The picture quality is pretty good. It doesn't quite capture license plates while moving, but other than that it is quite good.
The manual is mediocre at best and the online support is about the same. Reaching out to the support team has resulted in no response in 18 hours. Not ideal.
The iOs app is completely non-sensical and I can't find any documentation. The OSX application is worse.
Still, the best dashcam unit I've found.
Their WiFi- what a joke! I would pay if they took it off it is so painfully slow I’m talking slower than you’ve ever known.
UPDATE: Replacement was refurbished model. Returning for refund.
Disappointment after the install! Picture quality is worse than my 490. Not a lot grant you, but just noticeable and the night vision is equally poor. Still no readable license plates or street signs unless I'm WAY to close to the vehicle in front of me.
I hear about the Ultra High Definition DR900s, 4K sensor, improved night vision, improved lens, built in everything including cloud, new file system not needing continual formatting, programmable auto reboot keeps things running smoothly. I bit, I bought, I installed it. DARN! It has some kind of debris behind the lens messing up the video. I get online again and ask for a replacement through amazon. WHAM new one on my doorstep and the returned unit accepted smooth as silk within days. Installed the new camera in my Expedition. The video is; well less than stunning, one might even call it bad. Can't read license plates or street signs. Large retail signs and cars just a short distance away look blurred. I don't know what to say. 3 different models over 2 years? If I were you I'd think long and hard before a Blackvue if picture quality is important. The last 2 units have been feature rich and and the 590 has been much more reliable in the short time I've had it compared to the same time with the 490. I can't comment on the 900 reliability as I've only owned 2 in less than a week.
I posted pictures of my 490 and my brand new 900s 4K UHD so you can see first hand the video quality (or lack of) I'm talking about. These pictures should help you compare and make a good decision.

Negative: Blackvue makes it very expensive to upgrade your SD card (the only SD card that works is theirs). To frustrated owners however, there does appear to be a workaround: copy the contents of the 16 GB SD card that comes with the camera to (high-speed SD card of your choice) and insert your SD card. This seems to work. I'm hoping this helps other owners out there. Oh - and don't buy their Power Magic EZ - it doesn't work on many cars, which may be why they are discontinuing it.
I would expect better quality from 4K sensor. Probably lenses are not the best quality, so image looks blurry, especially at the edges. As you may see in the attached pictures, number plates are not readable if car in not in the same lane, even at day light.
For me the installation was easy, because I already had another Blackvue camera installed, so no new wiring, just remove old holder and stick the new one. I wouldn't expect difficulties installing this camera fresh, as Blackvue provides all mounting brackets and even pry tool.
Many reviewers complain about inability to use third-party memory cards. This is not true. Samsung EVO Plus works great with this camera. In needs to be formatted by camera itself - just press and hold "WiFi" button for more than 5 seconds, and camera will do the rest for you. Need to make sure that memory card is U3 standard, so it's capable of write speeds for 4K video stream.
WiFi capability in this camera is very useful - no need to remove SD card from camera and insert it to a computer to watch recordings. Just install application to a smartphone, connect to camera's WiFi and watch/download the videos on smartphone.
Conclusion: If I wouldn't have Blackvue before, I would shop around for better video quality to price ratio.
