    Discover the 4K difference

    4K in a dashcam is not a gimmick. It is a game-changer.
    It is not about playing videos on a giant screen–although you could do that too. It’s about providing video proof.
    A dashcam is only as good as its ability to capture crucial details–usually license plate numbers.
    The 8-megapixel 4K UHD sensor does just that by capturing 4 times as many pixels as in Full HD.
    And with its fast shutter speed, details are frozen in place.
    Just pause and zoom in.

    Seamless Pairing with the BlackVue App

    Effortless setup.

    Simply connect to your dashcam without leaving the BlackVue App. With Seamless Pairing, setting up your dashcam is a breeze. Just power the dashcam, then easily connect from the BlackVue app and follow the simple instructions.

    Whether you want to browse your dashcam’s files and settings or connect your dashcam to the Cloud, Seamless Pairing makes everything easy and intuitive.

    Wi-Fi, GPS and Optional LTE

    Wi-Fi: download videos to your phone at blazing speed. Wi-Fi also lets your BlackVue connect to BlackVue Cloud via any home or mobile Wi-Fi hotspot (router).
    GPS: visualize the location of your vehicle on the map during video playback and overlay speed on videos (can be hidden in settings).
    LTE: connect the optional LTE connectivity module* via the USB port for the best Cloud experience and use your BlackVue as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to five devices.

    (*) SIM card not included.

    Native Parking Mode

    Hardwiring cable included
    DR970X Series can be hardwired to your vehicle’s fuse panel for Parking Mode, without requiring optional accessories. The dashcam will switch to Parking Mode automatically when vehicle ignition is turned off. Voltage cutoff and timer can be set in the BlackVue App.

    Parking Mode accessories support
    DR970X Series is also compatible with all BlackVue Parking Mode Kits and Batteries.

    Built-in Speaker, Impact Sensor and Motion Detection

    Speaker: your dashcam tells you when it turns on, shuts down or detects errors.
    Accelerometer: detects impacts to trigger Event recording. Enables Parking Mode* when stationary for 5 minutes.
    Automatically tags video files: While driving, the built-in accelerometer (G-sensor) detects impacts and sudden changes in speed. While parked, your BlackVue also detects visual movements around your vehicles (in Motion + Impact detection mode).
    Use the filters in the BlackVue App and Viewer: BlackVue tags all videos (Normal, Event, Parking Mode, etc.), so that you can filter them and quickly find the ones you need in the BlackVue Viewer (Windows, Mac OS, Web) or the BlackVue App (Android, iOS).

    (*) Parking Mode Kit or Battery is required. Learn more about Parking Mode.

    BlackVue Cloud

    Me and My Car. Connected.

    Connect to your BlackVue anytime, from anywhere in the world with BlackVue Cloud.

    Receive Push Notifications on your phone whenever the dashcam detects an impact on your parked vehicle, and see for yourself with Remote Live View. Even better, let BlackVue upload critical footage—such as break-in or hit and run—in real time to the Cloud with Live Event Upload.
    Play and download videos from your dashcam or the Cloud from anywhere and back up important videos to the free Cloud storage.
    Enjoy Two-way Voice Communication with the driver from the app through the BlackVue’s integrated speaker and mic. Check the BlackVue Cloud page for more information.

    Your videos are safe

    Event Files Overwrite Protection: dashcams record in a loop, overwriting older files when the memory is full. BlackVue can prevent Event files (triggered manually or by impacts) overwriting. Up to fifty (50) files can be protected this way. You can choose to allow new Event files to overwrite past Event files, thus keeping the latest fifty.

    Adaptive Format-Free File Management: this BlackVue-developed file system improves recording stability and requires less microSD card formatting.

    SD Card Failure Alert: your BlackVue detects as soon as the microSD card fails and warns you with a “Please check SD card” voice alert.

    LTE Connectivity Module (Optional)

    Unlock BlackVue Cloud access. Share Wi-Fi in your car.

    The CM100GLTE provides easy 4G LTE connectivity to enable BlackVue Cloud features. All you need is a valid Nano SIM card. The CM100GLTE is powered and connects via the USB port of your dashcam.

    When connected to the CM100GLTE, BlackVue DR970X Series can serve as a mobile hotspot providing wireless Internet access to up to five devices (smartphone, tablet, etc.).
    Note: when purchasing, make sure the CM100GLTE you choose is compatible with your mobile carrier’s network.

    Tamper-Proof Case (Optional)

    The BTC-1C is a special-purpose mount designed to prevent tampering.
    It replaces your dashcam’s original mount. The side cover, fastened by two hex screws, blocks the access to the microSD card and the cable connectors.

    Triple protection

    • Locks the dashcam’s angle via an hex screw to prevent rotation.
    • Blocks the access to the microSD card slot.
    • Protects against the unplugging of the power, video and USB cables.

    Intelligent Parking Mode

    Protect your car when you are away.

    Motion & Impact Detection mode

    • Region - Based
      Motion Detection

    Motion & Impact Detection Parking Mode detects both:

    • Motions recorded by the image sensor (marked “P” in the file list).
    • Impacts detected by the accelerometer/G-sensor (marked “E” in the file list).

    Choose detection regions to reduce the risk of triggering unwanted motion recordings due to trees swaying in the wind, far-away moving objects, etc.

    Time lapse mode

    • Time Lapse +
      Buffered Events

    Continuously records at 1FPS (one frame per second). Videos are played back at 30FPS. 
    1-minute Time lapse Parking Mode video = 30 minutes real time coverage.
    Cover a period of more than 54 hours on a single 32GB microSD card at the highest (Extreme) quality setting.
    When an impact is detected, the dashcam creates a buffered Event video.

    Parking Mode Event Voice Notifications:

    Upon exiting Parking Mode, your BlackVue tells you if Events were recorded when you were away from your car, so you can check right away the Event videos on the BlackVue App.

    Scheduled Reboot:

    Schedule a daily automatic reboot (optional—at night by default ) to minimize potential errors. Reboots happen only if the dashcam is in Parking Mode and not writing data to the microSD card.  

    Super stealthy:

    Completely turn off all LED indicators in Parking Mode. Only the recording LED indicator facing the interior of the vehicle will blink when motion or impact is detected.
