If you are interested in the DR430, but an upgraded version with 1080p front and 720p rear, check out the BlackVue DR470.
The BlackVue DR430-2CH is newest, most affordable, two-channel dash cam. The DR430 is still high quality and perfect for those who do not need all the extra functionality and features that come with some of the pricier BlackVue dash cameras.
If you are familiar with the BlackVue product line, you may be wondering what the difference is between the BlackVue DR430 and the well-known BlackVue DR650GW-2CH. Here are some of the comparisons between the two:
- Dual 720p video (both front and rear) on the DR430 vs 1080p (front) and 720p (rear) on the DR650
- The DR650GW-2CH comes with built-in GPS (internal GPS), but it is optional on the DR430-2CH (via external GPS antenna)
- There is no WiFi interface on the DR 430 2CH
- The front camera on the DR430-2CH is slightly smaller than the front camera on the DR650GW-2CH, but the two rear cameras are of the same size
The DR 430 now has a built-in mechanism for securing the cover or "door" over the memory card so that no one has access to the microSD card, allowing for tamper-proof in-car audio and video recording. You can use your own mini lock to secure the memory card, or a simple tamper-evident metal or plastic tie to prevent or deter anyone from accessing the memory card.
All in all, the BlackVue DR430-2CH is an extremely high quality 2-channel dash camera that trumps many of the dual-lens dash cameras that are on the market today, and at an affordable price! This combined with the reliability of the BlackVue brand makes it a no-brainer for those looking for an affordable high quality dash camera!
