In this dashcam installation photo gallery, we go over the final product of hardwiring the new triple lens, local-WiFi enabled, 1080p Full HD BlackVue Essential Bundle for taxi/Uber/Lyft/rideshare drivers in a Chevrolet Impala.
The BlackVue Essential Bundle is comprised up of the following BlackVue products:
- DR590W-2CH-IR: for front and interior coverage
- DR590W-1CH: for coverage out the rear windshield
- Two Power Magic Pros: to keep both cameras in operation when you are driving or away from your vehicle
The BlackVue Essential Bundle is a great option for those looking for affordable but reliable front, interior and rear coverage for their vehicle, with the ability to connect directly to their dashcam over WiFi (to copy files, change settings, or check the aim of the cameras). This sort of setup is perfect for Uber and Lyft rideshare drivers, taxis, or even commercial fleet vehicles.
This installation was performed by The Dashcam Store™ technicians.
The vehicle now protected with the "Dashcam Defense": this 2014 Chevy Impala. Protect your own ride, yourself, and your passengers with the new BlackVue Essential Bundle.
Thanks again to Mr. J. for coming to see us!
We begin our tour of the DR590W-2CH-IR by looking at the front-facing camera from the outside. BlackVue's dark colors and compact design means the dashcam isn't immediately visible to the casual observer.
The Uber rideshare decal is noticeable, the dashcam, not so much!
A close up shot of the front camera from the outside. We think these dashcams look like OEM equipment, which is great for inconspicuous recording.
Now looking in from the passenger side, we get out first view of the inside-facing camera lens of the DR590W-2CH-IR system. The front camera is visible as well.
Note we have utilized our custom offset mounting bracket to give the inside-facing camera lens a better vantage point looking into the vehicle (without obstructions). Without the optional offset mounting bracket, portions of the video frame would contain parts of the rear view mirror or headliner.
A closer view of the infrared-equipped (for improved night-vision) inside-facing camera of the DR590W-2CH-IR system, and the offset mounting bracket (the clear mount piece between the camera lens and windshield). The offset mounting bracket is also available in black.

From the driver seat, the view out the front windshield is not obstructed at all, thanks to the small size of the DR590W-2CH-IR dashcam lenses.
From the backseat of our Impala, this is the view your rideshare passenger would see. Note the front-facing camera is nearly invisible, and the inside-facing camera is quite discreet as well.
Our client also chose to have the single-lens DR590W-1CH installed in the rear windshield, for complete coverage inside and around their vehicle. They now have the BlackVue 3-channel "Essential" bundle: front, inside, and rear camera angles.

Our technicians installed two Power Magic Pro control boxes in the glove box. Our client now has independent "parking mode" control: one Power Magic for the DR590W-2CH-IR and one for the DR590W-1CH.
