Top 3 Budget Front & Back Dash Cameras (Dual Channel Cams): Mini 0906, Blackvue DR490, Pruveeo F5

January 10, 2020


Hey it’s Andrew with Car Cam Central We review dash cameras and we’re back with our budget dual channel recommendations for 2017 so far These cameras record not only the front but also from your rear windshield which allows you to capture faces and details like license plates in hit and run accidents As always we researched many cameras and spent close to $1000 American to test those that were promising We have three recommendations Our top value pick for most drivers is the $130 Mini 0906 camera The video quality functionality and performance is a big leap over cameras we found under $200 Our cheap choice is the $60 Pruveeo F5 but there’s a lot of drawbacks we’ll talk about later Finally there’s the $210 Blackvue DR490 which is our pick for parked recording or for drivers in hotter climates There’s a lot to talk about so let’s get into it [Intro] Starting first with the basics all three of our recommendations are dash cams They’ll turn on and start recording automatically when they receive power They will also record on a loop which means they will overwrite the oldest files on your card when it runs out of space As well all three have a second camera which attaches using adhesive pads to your rear windshield It sends video to the front camera through a 20’ cable with an easy plug and play connection During installation you will need to hide the cable either in the headliner or under your seats Each car is different but I think most people can do everything in under an hour You might be thinking if this is worth the trouble While the front camera is most important we found there many situations where the rear camera is helpful One top reason is to give context behind a road-rage or a tailgating accident If the driver behind you is acting dangerously and you later collide you can show what happened and how their driving influenced your actions The second is for a hit and run accident This is most helpful for rear-end hits where the driver does a U-Turn and drives away You can also capture the driver’s face so you can sue for injuries and they can’t lie and say they were somewhere else Looking at our first pick the $130 Mini 0906 is our top recommendation for most drivers It’s a game changer as it delivers the performance and heat resistance that has not been found in cameras under $200 The body is fairly small and stealthy to outside observers and hopefully less of a tempting target to steal There’s three main reasons why you should spend more to get the Mini 0906 over the cheaper cameras available First the 0906 uses capacitors not lithium ion batteries Both store energy to safely shutdown your camera when you turn off your vehicle Capacitors are more reliable and heat resistant so your camera is less likely to fail and need replacing Most budget dash cams use batteries which can swell in hot weather and damage your camera This happened to the original version of the Anker ROAV camera we tested The second reason you should get the Mini is the for the better rear camera You can stick it to vertical windshields which are found on some SUVs and hatchbacks and still get a good angle On cheaper cameras many use a generic square camera which has adjustability issues if mounted on directly on some windshields Most importantly the video quality is so much better compared to most budget cameras Both the front and rear record in remarkably clear full HD 1080P When compared with our $60 pick the front looks relatively similar during the day At night there’s a larger contrast The clarity and sharpness are significantly better under low light conditions If we look at the rear camera that’s where the Mini 0906 is shockingly better You can read license plates both day and night and the camera becomes dramatically more useful Most budget cameras have VGA resolution footage which is grainy and mushy The mini camera takes a maximum 128GB card which gives just over 7 and a half hours of recording time at the highest quality Moving on let’s talk about parked recording The Mini 0906 has a special setting called parking guard which saves space on your SD card It works with a special hardwiring kit which connects your camera to your car’s battery for continuous power when your engine is off It has a voltage cutoff circuit to prevent the camera from draining your battery The parking guard activates when it senses your vehicle has turned off It will lower the resolution to 720P and the frame rate to 2FPS When it detects motion or a shock it switches back to recording at 30 frames per second However there’s a three-second gap where the camera is not recording and you could miss capturing an accident or license plate We do not recommend you turn on parking guard until this delay is fixed or a better parking mode is implemented The Mini 0906 comes with a wireless remote which can activate the emergency lock feature by holding down the button This feature protects the current file from being overwritten It’s quite helpful after an accident or interesting event Moving on like all cameras we recommend you get everything you need for installation except a microSD card which you’ll need to buy yourself Certain cards like the Transcend or Sandisk High Endurance are more durable See our video for more To install the camera it’s simple No tools are required The Mini uses an adhesive tape for the front and rear cameras which holds strongly under different weather conditions and removes cleanly without residue The only other issue is the poor error notifications with faulty microSD cards On our four non-working units the camera would flash a “card full error” once for 1-2 seconds before it disappears It’s very easy to miss that your camera has problems recording As all cards fail overtime this is a problem On better cameras like the Vicovation OPIA2 you’ll see a constant LCD warning that tells you there’s a problem Hopefully the Mini will be fixed with a firmware update Overall we love the Mini 0906 We haven’t seen another camera under $200 that gives you 1080P front and back quality with better heat tolerance because of its capacitor build Looking at our next camera if you have a lower budget the $60 Pruveeo F5 was the best we could find It has OK video quality backed up by decent customer service Still we do not recommend the F5 unless you really want a front-back camera and you can’t afford the Mini 0906 Starting with camera body its wedged shape is great for escaping notice The F5 looks like it was built into your vehicle Moving to the rear camera it’s design means it can’t be installed on vertical windshields found on some vehicles You’ll have to find a horizontal surface like a taillight As well you will need to bend the metal bracket to get the right angle On most vehicles you should have no problems The video quality is the biggest downside While the front camera is acceptable there’s a decent amount of detail during the day and night However the rear camera is dismal you won’t be able to make out any faces or license plates Still it’s enough to show what was happening such as tailgating or dangerous driving As well the F5 also uses lithium-ion batteries which can cause trouble in hotter climates Even if the Pruveeo had a proper parking mode this would not be a good candidate for recording in hot vehicles The F5 also has the worst SD card slot I’ve used I needed a tool to insert and remove the card as it was buried deep Fortunately the camera’s reliability has been good so far There were a few issues with the LCD cover falling off but not many reports of failed cameras Overall we aren’t excited about the Pruveeo F5 but it is an option for those who can’t afford the Mini 0906 We did not find any cameras we would recommend under this price Moving on we tested the $120 Rexing V1P We wanted a camera from a popular brand with excellent customer service While it has many positive reviews we do not think it’s a good value The video quality is similar to the $60 Pruveeo F5 except it costs nearly the same as the Mini 0906 Like the F5 it uses lithium-ion batteries They also use a 3M tape that has trouble coming cleanly off windshields compared to the VHB adhesive that is normally used As we said before we think Rexing has great customer service we just think it’s not worth double the price over the Pruveeo F5 We’ll leave the decision to you Finally let’s look at the $210 Blackvue DR490 While it is pushing the definition of a budget camera it is the cheapest dual 1080P camera from a well-known manufacturer There are two models but we only we recommend the cylindrical Non-LCD variant the DR490 not the DR490L The DR490 is not the overall better choice versus the Mini 0906 We’d only get DR490 for three reasons One if you need parking mode Two you live somewhere hotter and want a more heat resistant camera Three if you want a mainstream brand with better customer support and a larger retailer network Otherwise the DR490 falls behind in video quality and we don’t think it’ll be worth the extra $70 over the Mini 0906 Starting first with Parking mode the DR490 is a better candidate over the mini as there’s no gaps in coverage The parking mode activates differently from the Mini 0906 It turns on when your car hasn’t moved in 5 minutes Which is detected through an accelerometer The camera will then stop writing to the SD card but will keep 10 seconds of video in its memory When the camera senses motion or an impact it will copy the saved video and the next 15 seconds in a new video file This is much more reliable than what the Mini 0906 uses right now Unlike the Mini you have more hardwiring kits to choose from See our parking mode article for details and more information on hardwiring your camera The second reason to get the Blackvue is for its higher temperature limit at 70C/158F over the 60C of the Mini camera This helps improve reliability in hot weather It also has a temperature sensor which will shut down the camera at 70C to protect it from overheating and is a more useful temperature compared to the Mini The third reason for you to consider the DR490 is Blackvue’s better retailer network You have brick and mortar locations like Best Buy and speciality retailers like BlackBoxMyCar who have experience installing cameras on vehicles like BMWs with complicated electronics Before we talk about some of the DR490’s downsides let’s look at the rest of the camera The DR490 attaches to your windshield using adhesives and is stealthy and not easily noticeable outside your vehicle Unlike other cameras you need a laptop or PC to change the settings as the camera doesn’t have an LCD screen or WiFi connectivity You’ll have to take out the SD card and run the Windows or OSX program which can be downloaded from their website I found it easy to use You’ll also need to rely on its voice notifications and LEDs to see if it is recording I am disappointed that Blackvue didn’t get error notifications right The 3 failed ADATA cards caused the camera to format and reboot on a loop The Transcend card seem to crash the camera as it wouldn’t start up We suggest you check your SD card often to make sure it is working Looking at the video quality the front camera is overall quite similar to the Mini 0906 as they both use a Sony Starvis Sensor The dynamic range sharpness and clarity is about the same both day and night For the rear camera it’s a different story There’s less detail and greater motion blur which means it’s harder to pickup license plates on the move The Mini 0906 uses a Sony Exmor sensor while Blackvue hasn’t published their specs We think it’s an inferior sensor Looking at the recording time you can use SD cards up to 128GB which gives around 13 Hours of recording time Blackvue includes a microSD card from 16-128GB depending on the package you buy They are reliable but pricey We also measured energy efficiency and found it was about the same as the other parking mode cameras we tested The recording time will depend on the size of your battery The DR490 comes with a standard one-year warranty We don’t expect any reliability issues with the camera as Blackvue has a lot of experience making these cameras Overall the DR490 is a good pick if you’re looking for a dual channel camera for parking mode and you don’t want to spend $400+ Speaking of $400+ cameras we’ll be testing quite a few in the future including the F800 we purchased We’ll talk about how premium models give you all the important features we talked about today and also add WiFi and live internet streaming That information will be in an article soon to come including the details we left out today For example the cameras we considered but didn’t end up testing or choosing Updates will be in the description below this video and for trusted retailers for the cameras we recommended Subscribe for more and hit that

    Nice and helpful reviews, thank you.
    But have you ever measured the vue angle of some dashcams? If not, be warned: the results can be quite sobering, 110° measured vs. 170° advertised seems to be common. Although no worries, 110° is still super a wide angle!

    Oooor, just hop on ebay, get urself an old samsung phone with sd slot & BOOM perfect dash cam,gps,music player etc etc. And if ur feeling magnanimous grab two s7's or old iphone 5's a nd now u've got front AND rear view.
    Me myself im using the samsung gear 360. While it has AMAZING video capabilities, it is very easily effected by the heat & cold . It shuts itself off in just 75° weather. It'll start up in -10 f. But only after the trucks heat is on for 2-5 minutes. I have an old samsung note 3 lying around which I'm about to deploy as my full time dash cam paired with a nice dash cam app & 32 gb sd card which i also have lying around collecting dust.

  • Reply Your PCMD March 7, 2018 at 6:57 pm

    I rely on your reviews so this one was a good one as well. Here is the issue I have with dual dash cams. Its all 30 fps. I dont mind 30 fps &/or 720p on the rear cam, but the front needs to be at 1080p with 60 fps. I just find motion blur too intrusive at 30 fps, especially when it comes to pausing a video. You get a clearer and sharper image versus having to constantly "rewind" a video and hope you get the information your looking for. Most people cannot afford the $300+ kits so there needs to be a company that provide these features at a affordable cost.

  • Reply Christo78001543 March 10, 2018 at 5:10 am

    I used your recommendation and bought the Mini0906 with the understanding that it's a budget camera. I really wasn't expecting amazing results but to my surprise, it exceeded my expectations. I installed it yesterday. It took less than an hour while I was at work. There was just enough cable to run the cable through the front interior pieces of my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 to hook up the front and plenty of extra cable to run the rear camera to the back window. The video is acceptable and the remote is perfect for capturing photos without bringing any attention to myself. I managed to get the temperature up to 167 degrees and to my surprise, it never shut off which impressed me. I've bought cheaper cameras with great disappointment. Thank you for your review. I skimmed through the instructions and I was able to run it out of the box without any regrets.

    I, for one, would like to see these vehicular camera manufacturers come out with a power (and rear camera) cable that is provided in connectable sections so we would be able to customize the length to suit our application. If they would include 2 or 3 1 M lengths, a 50 cm, a 25 cm, and a 10 cm length, we would not have to try and hide all of the single cable they currently provide.
    Right now I have about 3 M of power cable stuffed in the driver side A pillar molding as well as the rear camera vid/pwr cable on the passenger side plus about 2 meters more coiled up and hidden above the passenger sun visor. The connector style they use on the rear camera cable is quite small and the connection itself is very snug and not prone to coming loose.

    Mini 0906 is a bad investment. it stops recording or has lapses in continuity of recording when card is near full or full. Poor support, website terrible, firmware update fails. TINY LETTER MESSAGES ON SCREEN – DISAPPEARING FAST, SO I CANT MAKE OUT WHATS GOING ON OR WHY IT STOPS RECORDING.
    I agree that first hour or two operation is ok, but then it stops recording while you are under impression that it does.

    I LOVE your simple screenshot (2:44) describing the difference between a battery and a super-capacitor and how parking-mode works (with buffered video in memory) (9:24) ! Subbed.

    For rearview, I'm debating a license plate cam vs hatchback window cam

    If Mini 0906 had Wi-Fi, it'd be perfect! I hope they release an updated model with Wi-Fi.

    Is there any difference on the brands? Zerogogo vs Blueskysea?

  • Reply Fang January 6, 2019 at 1:19 am

    If reliability was to be the main factor of purchase, which will you recommend? Blueskysea Mini 0906 or Viofo A119v2 ?

  • Reply Datta T January 14, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    Is it time to look at the a129 from viofo for the dual channel category?

    Hi, We'd like to the pruveeo f5 dash camera. Is this the type "Pruveeo F5-Dual FHD 1080P Dash Cam Front and Rear Dual Camera for Cars Driving Recorder DVR " you were recommending? If so, do we also have to buy the Sandisk and hard wire kit together? The three add up to $79 on Amazon, but I thought you said it cost about $69. Can we buy the Sandisk and hard wire kit elsewhere? We have one corolla and one sienna, so we have to know if we have to buy two different cables for those two rear lens. Are we able to see the other car's license plate if we were rear ended in the evening using pruveeo f5 dash camera? Thanks.

    Will the mini 0906 damage my tint? When i remove thr camera As i have both front and rear windshield tint installed on my car

    I LOVE your videos and the are a god balance of technical matters and tech-phobic people.

    Here in Arizona, we get 360 days of BRIGHT sunshine a year so glare is a problem.
    Being a hot desert, even when we partially open a window, interior temps are so high I can bake a cake on my dash so High Temp is a problem.
    We also often use light reflective sunshades so any cam that is not on the rear view mirror is in that extra-hot zone between sunshade and glass.
    Humidity here for 10 months of the year is >2% so adhesive4 failure and suction cup failure are very common.

    How about a video concerning these problems?

    UPDATES – Sept 12th, 2019
    The Viofo A129 is still our top budget dual channel camera. It replaces and significantly improves upon the Mini 0906. Watch our review here: https://youtu.be/BQNavxPT1mg

    Love your videos, thank you so much! I am trying to find a front/rear dash cam that holds up in heat, but also has external mount rear cam. Any suggestions?

  • Reply G3ORGE June 23, 2019 at 10:29 am

    Has anybody tried a 256GB card with Mini 0906? I know specifications say 128GB max, but that's because usually higher capacity cards aren't available at the time for testing.
