Ok.. so yea I purchased the DR900S-2CH 4K UHD version..ITS AMAZING...

but let me tell ya... it has a cloud service, which I was aware of and went thru the app to make sure I setup my system correctly, and then I logged into the cloud interface... WOWSER..

I am not sure if all these people know that they are broadcasting LIVE there cameras 24/7 ??
Video and Audio


I think this is my new GOTO for action watching during the day..

I just listen to a dude argue with his wife..lol... this is nuts.. WOW

i also just decided to get this camera yesterday (1-channel version)...sounds like it was a good decision.

HOWEVER...

What the heck?? Can you opt to turn off the live streaming so everyone can watch? I mean, I don't care about you hearing me fart or something, but I don't want everyone all up in my bees knees...

that would be crazy if you can't secure that...?

haha that's hilarious. i just spent the past 30 minutes trying to figure out why i couldn't create an account from the windows app...just kept error'ing out. anyway, i eventually tried download the iOS app and created an account there with no issues. it really is incredible...but there are a lot less watching options than i thought. most are parked and the ones that are driving seem mostly like big rigs, limos, etc. i saw a couple of regular cars. it's pretty awesome to see other countries...

only downside is 10 min viewing time per day for a free account. gotta upgrade to get to unlimited live viewing...oh well. we'll see if there's a reason to upgrade...FLC63s, have you found a good reason to upgrade to $10/mo?

Actually i did NOT use the power magic pro, after research i found lots of people had problems and it drained the car battery.

i opted for the power banks (batteries) and its been flawless. (Click here for info)

i had a local guy install, took @ 1 1/2 hours (he has done them before) and did an amazing job.
he charged me $200 for front/rear and battery pack.

For the wireless CLOUD feature, I got a $50 portable WiFi hotspot, that lasts a long time (longer than a cell phone for charging) and use that to connect my car to the cloud while parked.
(I turned off all notifications except impact while parked) since you will get notifications every second otherwise :-) Although I do have all events being logged to the cloud account.

NOTE: you do NOT need wireless in your car for the camera etc to work.. only if you want to remote view or control the camera while it's parked.
while driving, you can have it use your cell phone or whatever if you like.

The app does allow you to add multiple wireless connections, (home, office, etc) and it will try them in round-robin mode until it connects to one.
(you can set 1 of them to be "Garage" which will be the main one it tries to connect to when you park first.)

Pics to follow later today

I have the 2ch dr900 and power bank. My battery warning goes off every 3 to 4 days of no use. I have had the battery checked independently and by mercedes for a dead cell, however it appears its the camera.

Will be having my guy look at it again to see why its draining the car battery as im sure he hard wired it.

Also noted the camera overheats a lot, even in our UK "sun" and thus connects and disconnects multiple times

Camera itself seems excellent however from a FOV and quality point of view

I recently had the dr900 2ch installed on my car and wanted the battery pack from blackvue installed as well, was advised not to use theirs as some of their customers had issues of it draining the battery when it shouldn't be.

They recommended to use the one from iRoad instead, a 10000mah battery. So far no issues, takes about 30-45min drive to charge it to full, and the app works quite well to monitor temps and charge left

DR63AMG if you are using a POWER BANK , and your battery is drainng on the car, then your INSTALLER did a BAD job!.. NEVER NEVER should any of these items be connected to constant power, and more the battery packs, will charge when you are driving only, and when the car is OFF, the battery pack is not drawing any power at all from the car.

I have noticed lots of installers think they know mercedes electronics when they clearly dont.
depending on your car (model/year) but mostly, switch power is on the left side (drivers side) but some people tap into the panel on the passanger side (which is NON SWITCH) and will cause problems.

ALSO, remember that the car has a delay on when the computers switch off , which if an installer is just searching for a HOT wire, could tap into the wrong thing, and cause the car computers to never shut off, causing other issues as well.

I am in Florida, and it gets AFRICA HOT here, and I have not had any shutdown issues or warnings on the app due to heat. (are you using a BlackVue SD card or another brand) - some SD cards are to fast for the camera and cause it to overheat.
(NOTE: the camera does run on the warm to hot side, but that is normal for operation)
