The BlackVue DR750-2CH LTE is the first BlackVue with built-in cellular connectivity. Connectivity aside, in terms of image quality and features, the DR750-2CH LTE is most similar to the DR750S-2CH. It uses two Sony STARVIS sensors (front and rear) for great clarity night and day, Full HD 1080p recording at 60 frames per second on the front camera and 30 on the rear camera.
It includes all the DR750S Series features, such as SD card failure alert, sub-stream technology (for fast video playback over Wi-Fi or the Cloud), and great Parking Mode options (Time Lapse + Impact Events or Motion detection + Impact Events).
Let’s be clear from the get go: if you are not planning on using Cloud features such as Remote Live View and Impact Push Notifications, BlackVue has other models for you such as the DR750S-2CH. If you are looking for the best Cloud-connected model, however, you are in for a treat.
The dashcam acts as a hotspot for the connected device
With DR750-2CH LTE, no more loss of connectivity for your phone when you connect to the dashcam. When connected to the dashcam in Wi-Fi, DR750-2CH LTE keeps your phone internet connection on. That means you will still be able to use the apps you have on your phone (Facebook, Messenger, Spotify, Waze, etc.). In other words, while connected over Wi-Fi to the dashcam, you will use the dashcam’s data plan for both the dashcam and your phone.
Note: one device can connect to the dashcam at a time.
If you’d rather not use up your dashcam’s data plan, make sure to disconnect from the dashcam. What if you forget to disconnect from the dashcam and your phone connects to it automatically whenever you are in range of its Wi-Fi signal? The easiest way to avoid this is to deactivate the Auto-join feature in your iOS/Android phone’s Wi-Fi settings menu.
Which version to pick?
Which version will work for you depends mostly on the LTE frequency bands supported by your local carrier(s).
USA, Canada: pick the NA version.
Europe, Africa, Middle-East, Russia, most of Asia: pick the GL model.
Australia, New Zealand: choose the AU version.
Japan: pick the JP version.
South America: NA preferably, with GL being usable in some countries.
|DR750-2CH LTE version||Bands supported||Main carriers|
|NA (North America)||B2, B4, B12||US: AT&T, T-Mobile; Canada: Rogers, Telus.
Preferred for most of South America except Brazil.
|GL (Global)||B1, B3, B7, B20||Europe: most of the main carriers.
Suitable for Africa, Middle-East, Russia, Brazil, Asia.
May be suitable for South America.
|AU (Australia)||B1, B3, B5||Vodafone
Also recommended for New Zealand.
|JP (Japan)||B1, B3, B18, B19||NTT Docomo|
Use the LTE frequency band info to pick a model that runs on your carrier’s LTE network.
The reason we share the bands information (B1, B2, etc.) is to let you double-check that the model you plan to get will work on your carrier’s network.
With a bit of research, you can find which bands are covered by your local carriers and get a Nano SIM from a carrier that operates on the bands supported by your DR750-CH LTE model.
How much data will you need?
Depending on the BlackVue Cloud features you plan to use, you might need varying amounts of data.
- Push Notifications use negligible amounts of data.
- Remote Live View uses a limited amount (about 4.5MB per minute). Remote video playback uses exactly as much as Remote Live View if you choose Sub-Streams (low resolution version) instead of the original-resolution videos.
- Cloud backup, remote playback and download over the Cloud of videos in their original resolution use considerably more data: about 190MB per minute for front camera videos at the highest bitrate (see this table for more info).
- MOST IMPORTANTLY: DR750-2CH LTE can act as a hotspot for your phone while you are connected to it over Wi-Fi. That means if you want to stay connected to the dashcam while listening to podcast and using a navigation app, you might want to get a beefier plan. If you are worried about using too much data from your dashcam’s plan, you can always choose not to automatically connect to the dashcam’s Wi-Fi: to do so, go to your phone’s Wi-Fi networks menu, then tap the BlackVue in the list, then uncheck the Auto-join feature.
