The BlackVue DR750X Plus Series was released in June 2021. Some of you might be looking to upgrade from an older BlackVue model. Would your existing coaxial cable be reusable? What about the power cable? Parking Mode accessories? In this article, we go over the frequently asked questions related cables and accessories compatibility.
Compatible with previous X Series models but not with the power cables from models prior (DR650GW, DR650S, DR750S, etc.).
Since the X Series (DR590X, DR750X, DR900X), the power connectors have changed to “3-wire type”, to support direct hardwiring. The DR750X Plus power cables are the same as the X Series but therefore incompatible with DR750S cables, for example.
The video cables are identical to the DR900X and DR750X Series (coaxial type), as well as the DR900S and DR750S series before them. If you are using DR650GW or older, the coaxial cable needs to be replaced.
DR590 and DR590X use different video cables so it's not compatible.
Parking Mode Accessories Compatibility
Same as past models.
That’s because DR750X Plus models have both G-sensor-based (when connected via cigarette lighter power adapter) and ignition-based Parking Mode (when hardwired). DR750X Plus models support the Cellink Power Packs and Power Magic Pro hardwiring kit.
Yes, you can still use Power Magic Pro: although somewhat redundant since the DR750X Plus support direct hardwiring with their built-in voltage monitoring, the PMP gives you a Parking Mode switch that some users find handy. Typically, they would turn the Parking Mode switch off when parked in their home garage and turn it on when leaving their home.
Rear Camera Compatibility
Not compatible with past rear cameras.
The DR750X Plus Series use a different sensor across the whole lineup, including the upcoming Interior Infrared (IR) and External Waterproof TRUCK rear camera. Therefore, existing rear cameras will not be compatible with the DR750X Plus front (main) camera.
Compatibility with other accessories
The shape of the DR750X Plus Series is almost identical to its predecessors DR750X and DR750S, so if you have a CPL Filter or Tamper-proof case (BTC-1C), you should be able to use it on the DR750X Plus.
Even if you need to replace the power cable and or coaxial cable due to incompatibility issue, not to worry, just contact our authorised dealers. They have the skills and experience to handle this with care.
