With BlackVue Cloud now active for close to 4 years and an ever-expanding range of dashcams, it is easy to lose track of which models are Cloud-compatible.
Does Wi-Fi mean Cloud-compatible?
This is where users commonly get confused. So far all Cloud models can use Wi-Fi to connect to the Cloud. However, not all Wi-Fi dashcams support Cloud connectivity.
It is one thing for a dashcam to establish a direct connection with a phone. It is another to do so while also being connected via Wi-Fi to a Cloud server.
Simply put, not all Wi-Fi modules are made equal. Some support Cloud connectivity and others don’t.
Specifically, the DR590W Series—DR590W-1CH, DR590W-2CH and DR590W-2CH IR—which support Wi-Fi, do not support the Cloud.
The DR590X Series have a USB port but do not support the 4G LTE connectivity module (CM100LTE) but support the CM100G LTE-M, which allows for Cloud Lite connectivity, first released in October 2020 in Japan. Check the DR590X Series information page for more information.
The older DR750LW-2CH (L for LCD and W for Wi-Fi), released in 2014, also does not support the Cloud.
