After running the Blackvue DR900S since it originally came out, I wanted to take a look at the new DR900X as well.

It shares many of the same internals and same video quality as the DR900S, but has improved high heat tolerance, a new 3-wire ignition triggered parking mode cable and internal voltage management (no more Power Magic Pro required, but new power cable required so there's issues with backwards compatibility), and it supports the new CM100 LTE module to make it easier to connect to the cloud.

Overall I think it's a nice improvement over the DR900S. I really do wish they improved the video quality and it's going to be annoying to have to rerun new power cables, but I'm glad they're improving upon the DR900S nonetheless.
