What's New?

Sony STARVIS 2 sensor

All DR970X-PLUS front cameras now feature the new STARVIS 2 IMX678 sensor, which greatly improves sensitivity in low-light and high-contrast areas.

Fast (f/1.7 aperture) lens

The large aperture lens allows the camera to gather more light compared to the f/2.8 lens of the non-plus models, which in turn results in faster shutter speed, allowing for better still frames with minimized blur.

Improved ISP tuning

BlackVue's own refinement to the image sensor processor, enhancing its ability to capture intricate details like license plates in low-light conditions, even when headlights cause reflections on vehicles.

Double the bitrate

The new PLUS models also get a bitrate (depth of information) bump from 25 MB/s to 60 MB/s meaning twice the detail is recorded.

2x the event buffer

The DR970X-PLUS models now feature a 10-second buffer, up from 5 seconds for previous models. Meaning auto event triggers record twice as much.

HEVC/H.265 codec

Higher-efficiency video coding compression algorithm better preserves details and also allows for recording at a higher bitrate.

Enhanced 4K Quality

As seen in the comparison footage, the DR970X-PLUS dash cam sets a new standard in recording quality with its 4K capabilities, significantly boosted by the advanced Sony STARVIS 2 sensor. This sensor plays a pivotal role in enhancing low-light sensitivity and expanding the dynamic range beyond the previous generation. Coupled with a faster f/1.7 aperture lens, it allows more light to enter, sharply capturing details and reducing blur. This results in remarkable clarity in recordings, particularly noticeable in night scenes and high-contrast settings. Additionally, the integration of the HEVC/H.265 codec means recordings are not only of higher quality but also capture every detail with increased bitrate from 25 to 60, ensuring vivid and crisp footage.

Swappable Secondary Cameras

The DR970X-2CH-PLUS dash cam provides you with the flexibility to choose between a rear-facing or interior-facing camera. The DR970X series is designed with an additional input port for a secondary camera. This allows you to store your secondary camera and use the DR970X front-only dash cam or switch to the secondary camera when desired.

GPS, Wi-Fi, and Optional LTE

GPS: While reviewing the footage, you can track the location of your vehicle on a map, and the video can also display your speed as an overlay. If you prefer not to have the speed displayed, you can hide it through the settings.

Wi-Fi: Thanks to its Wi-Fi capabilities, you can effortlessly link your BlackVue dashcam to your smartphone or tablet. Moreover, Wi-Fi connectivity allows the camera to connect to the BlackVue Cloud via any mobile or home Wi-Fi hotspot or router. This connection grants easy access to files and settings.

Optional LTE: For the optimal Cloud experience, you have the option to connect the DR970X to the BlackVue Cloud via an LTE connectivity module. The module can be connected via the USB port.

*SIM card IS included.*

Optional LTE Module

With the optional CM100LTE module, connecting to the cloud 24/7 is effortless. This add-on device links to the DR970X front camera through a USB port, enabling a constant internet connection. It also transforms the DR970X-PLUS into a mobile hotspot for up to five devices. Unlike in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspots, this module stays active while parked, making your dash camera accessible from any location worldwide.

3 Native Parking Surveillance Modes

By using the included hardwiring kit or the optional B-130X battery pack, you can hardwire the DR970X to your vehicle's fuse panel for Parking Surveillance Mode. When the ignition is turned off, the DR970X will switch to Parking Mode automatically. There are three variations of Parking Mode available:

Motion Detection: Triggered when the sensor detects movement (marked “P” in the file list).

Impact Detection: Detected by the accelerometer/G-sensor (marked “E” in the file list)

Time Lapse Mode: Records continuously at 1FPS. 1-minute Time lapse Parking Mode video = 30 minutes real time coverage. Impacts initiate a buffered Event video.

3 Native Parking Surveillance Modes

The built-in accelerometer (G-sensor) in the DR970X-PLUS can detect abrupt changes in speed or impacts while driving. Similarly, when parked, it can detect any visible movements around your vehicle, and these incidents are automatically labeled and saved. If a cloud connection is established, you can receive alerts and access the clips from both your computer and mobile device.

Optional Cloud Features

  • Live View: Monitor your car in real time.
  • Live Event Upload: Impact and Motion detection events are uploaded straight to the Cloud.
  • Video Backup: Move files from the dashcam to the Cloud!
  • Remote Video Playback: Play videos stored in the Cloud or in your dashcam anytime on your smartphone.
  • Emergency Alarm: Get a notification whenever something happens to your car.
