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.

Rear: Diagonal 131°, Horizontal 107°, Vertical 55°

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.

BlackVue LTE SIM Card Included

BlackVue SIM Cards are included in North American (NA) models, which enables immediate access to BlackVue Cloud upon unboxing. By inserting the SIM Card into the designated tray and powering on the BlackVue device, you can proceed to follow the instructions outlined in the BlackVue App. In addition, you'll be given a complimentary 1GB trial for the initial month of usage. If you need additional data, you can opt for a 1GB, 3GB, or 5GB plan, and make monthly payments. There is no obligation to continue, and you may cancel at any time.

Mobile Hotspot Functionality

Your DR970X-2CH-LTE-PLUS has the capability of functioning as a Wi-Fi router for your vehicle, providing internet access for up to five devices simultaneously. With this feature, you and your passengers can conveniently use your BlackVue's internet to connect laptops, portable game consoles, tablets, or mobile devices, and enjoy uninterrupted browsing while on the go.

GPS, Wi-Fi and Mobile Hotspot

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.

Seamless Pairing: With Seamless Pairing, configuring your dashcam is effortless. Simply power on the device and connect it seamlessly through the BlackVue app. By following the straightforward instructions, you can access the dashcam's settings and files or connect to the Cloud. Seamless Pairing streamlines the process and simplifies navigation, whether you need to browse or connect.

3 Native Parking Surveillance Modes

By using the included hardwiring kit or the optional B-130X battery pack, you can hardwire the DR970X-PLUS to your vehicle's fuse panel for Parking Surveillance Mode. When the ignition is turned off, the DR970X-PLUS 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.

Motion & Impact Detection

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.

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.
