Upgraded 4K Quality

At the heart of the DR970X series' upgrades is a state-of-the-art SigmaStar CPU and ISP, which have been purpose-built from scratch. Thanks to this advanced technology, the camera can now capture ultra-sharp 4K footage that preserves crucial details like license plates and street signs. Additionally, the camera's 8-megapixel CMOS sensor ensures that even in low-light conditions, every detail is captured with exceptional clarity.

Add A Secondary Camera

The DR970X-1CH offers expandability from one recording "channel" to two, just like its predecessors in the DR750X and DR900X series. This latest model includes an extra input port for a secondary camera, giving you the option to use it as a front-only dash cam or to add a rear-facing, interior-facing, or waterproof TRUCK camera at a later time. With this feature, you get the best of both worlds.

Keep in mind that you can only add one additional camera to the DR970X-1CH system, bringing the total to two camera angles. The secondary camera is not included in the base price and is entirely optional.

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 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 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 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.
