Upgrading to BlackVue DR900S Series? See What Cables plus Accessories You Can Re Use.

BlackVue DR900S

Interested in upgrading from your current BlackVue to the new BlackVue DR900S 4K Dash​cam Series?  If you are, you might be wondering what cables and accessories are compatible with your present model, be it a DR750 or DR600 series, here is the info you need to know before upgrading.

Here is the rundown on what you can and can’t reuse and this will help tell you if you need a pro to install your new BlackVue DR900S camera.

Power Cables.

Good news! Most power cables are compatible. Only exceptions: DR750LW-2CH and DR490L-2CH power cables.

Video Cables.

BlackVue Coaxial Video Cable BlackVue DR900S

The DR900S-2CH uses a coaxial video cable to connect the rear camera to the front unit.

Any DR750S-2CH, DR650S-2CH, DR650GW-2CH or even DR750LW-2CH coaxial cable will be compatible.

DR590W-2CH, DR590-2CH, DR490L-2CH, DR490-2CH all use analogue video cables: those are not compatible with the DR900S (and other models above).

Camera Mounts.

This one can be a bit trickier to figure out.

Front Camera Mount.

The DR750S Series front camera mounts are compatible with the DR900S Series.

All others are not compatible (the DR650S and DR650GW front mounts do look similar to the DR750S and DR900S front mounts on the outside but they will not fit properly).

To recognize the model, look at the inscription on the mounting.

  • DR900S: BLACKVUE CLOUD, 4K UHD
  • DR750S: BLACKVUE CLOUD, FHD 60FPS
  • DR650S: BLACKVUE CLOUD, FULL HD
  • DR650GW: BLACKVUE WI-FI, FULL HD

Rear camera mount: The rear camera mounts from past models are all compatible except for the DR490L-2CH rear camera mount.

Rear / Interior Cameras.

The DR900S-2CH and DR750S-2CH rear cameras share the same specifications and design.

Other models’ rear cameras are not compatible with DR900S

IMPORTANT:  The 1CH models do not include a port for a rear camera. This means if you own a DR750S-2CH and want to reuse its rear camera, you must choose the DR900S-2CH.

What can I reuse if I upgrade to the DR900S-1CH or DR900S-2CH?
