Front-View Camera & DVR Recording System

Amazing things happen every day, how many of them do you miss because you didn't catch them on camera? This accident between two big rigs where the driver of one miraculously wasn't injured would've been just that, an accident, without a front-view camera in the trailing car.

The BCMDVR1 is an innovative all-in-one OEM replacement-style rearview mirror with a 4.3" LCD monitor, HD front-view camera and DVR system. This unique new product from BELVA is an indispensable vehicle accessory for both pleasure and for protection. A quick YouTube search for "dashcam" yields countless instances of once-in-a-lifetime moments, as well as footage clearly absolving the driver from otherwise questionable circumstances in the event of an accident. Since the BCMDVR1 can record two separate inputs simultaneously, you can record everything that happens both in front & behind you!

Protect Yourself From Fraud!

It's unfortunate that there are people willing to cause an accident in order to make a phony insurance claim or extort the other driver. However, it's easy to protect yourself from these would-be scam artists by simply recording the events which transpire. Sure, the damage may look like you rear-ended him, but your dash cam will prove that he threw the car into reverse!

Even if the other driver isn't attempting to scam you, it's likely that their version of events will absolve them of much of the blame. With the BCMDVR1, you'll have irrefutable proof of what actually happened.

Capture Priceless Moments!

It's not every day that a fighter jet buzzes by, or a giant meteor streaks across the sky, but when it does happen you'll want to be prepared! With a dash cam system, you won't need to take your eyes off the road to capture HD footage of whatever might occur. The BCMDVR1 also makes a great recording solution for quick runs through the canyons or other fun drives. Pick up yours today!

Why You Need This:

  • So you don't get taken advantage of
  • People will cause accidents intentionally so they can take your money!
  • Capture really cool moments like meteor showers
  • Film a cool chase scene for that action movie you've always wanted to make! Safely of course...

General Features

Bluetooth Connectivity
Bluetooth® technology allows two or more electronic devices to communicate with each other wirelessly, such as using your cell phones "hands-free" or transmitting music to Bluetooth enabled receiver. If a unit is Bluetooth capable, it typically can allow you to connect to your Bluetooth cell phone to make and receive calls. Others can access your phone and address book too via Bluetooth. Other Bluetooth capable units offer even more services, such as live traffic information and map upgrades.

More uses of Bluetooth technology include transmitting music to a compatible receiver, printing wirelessly from a computer, and many other wireless uses. Please see the item description for more specific information regarding what features the unit includes.

Built-In Monitor
Built-in monitor means that the item has a built-in display. Usually the monitor is linked to a auxilary video input such as a rear-view camera.
Screen Type
The type of technology used to produce the screen images. LCD, DLP, Plasma, LCoS, and CRT are the most common. 2 newer technologies include LED and OLED which use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as a backlight, as opposed to conventional LCD TVs, which use cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) for a backlight.
Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

1 Rear RCA Video Input
Clip On Mirror
Some Rear-view mirrors clip on and cover the factory rear-view mirror. These clip on style mirrors preserve the factory mirror should anything happen to the new one.
Includes Rear-View Camera
This option means that the product comes with a rear-view camera.

Rear view recording mirror

September 17, 2013

This mirror, which was recommended by supplier, was well worth the fair price which I paid. Delivery was excellent. I had a local Dodge dealer install this product and they said that it was easy and they were impressed with the operating functions
. I would "highly" recommend this product!

Impressed by item and super fast shipping.

The awesome russian vids on youtube inspired me to get a dash cam. I did not want another device to go with my phone and radar detector just dangling on my dash. This is a nice solution and its actually a lot better than I first imagined it would be. I got it installed in my ford truck and it works good. Haven't caught an accident or meteorite just yet. The video input works with my iphone 4 output to rca. Wasnt great for video watching but it was still kinda cool.

Cool product and I am sure I will be one of the first to post something cool to youtube from america. Ha

installation can be challenging

April 29, 2014

Make sure your existing mirror can be removed easily or it could cost you $$$. I tried installing this on my 2011 ford Fiesta and removing the old mirror also took a chunk out of the windshield. Lesson learned, get the help of a professional if you don't know how to remove the old mirror. As for the unit itself it's very stiff and if you have multiple drivers adjusting it could be a problem. Due to the angle of my windshield and the fact that the camera does not tilt up/ down I find it shoots at more sky than road or the front of your car. Other than that it seems to operate as advertised.

Verified Purchase
good for the price

April 12, 2015

The unit was easy to install, though the manual could use a little beefing up to explain the symbols and operation. The first unit I purchased was non responsive so I purchased a second and it works properly. I called the help line and they are going refund my money upon return.

Will not record more than 30 seconds

October 3, 2015

I have had this for a year now and I'm very disappointed. I wish I had returned it immediately.
My main problem with this unit is that it will not record more than 30 seconds of continuous video.
You can change the record time in the menu, up to 5 minutes, but it simply does nothing.
No matter what I set it to, all the vids are 30 seconds long, and THERE IS A 2 MINUTE GAP BETWEEN VIDEOS. I would be OK with the 30 sec videos if there was maybe a 5 sec gap, but This is useless as there is significantly more "OFF" time than "ON" time.
If I ever need the video for anything serious, chances are it will not have recorded the incident.
Other reviewers have the same problem.
Otherwise all the functions seem to work.

Is it able to record while the car is off? Someone is vandalizing my car and the police suggested getting a dash cam.
Krista N on Jan 16, 2015
Best Answer: This unit does not record while the car is off although you could wire it to be always on. I don't know how fast that would drain your battery if your car is left unattended for long periods of time.

Do I have to erase the data off the SD card when it's full, or does it record over old video?
fredD on Dec 21, 2014
Best Answer: It will record over the old files. But if there is a recording you would like to keep you need to transfer it to your computer before it gets erased over.
