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. Secure. No password.
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.
Ultrawide Infrared Interior Camera
The Infrared Camera secures the interior of your vehicle. The inconspicuous infrared LEDs automatically activate based on the ambient luminosity.
The camera’s spectacular clarity even in pitch black lighting conditions will procure peace of mind to taxi and rideshare drivers.
With its ultrawide 180-degree view angle, the camera can capture both the driver-side and passenger-side windows at the same time in most vehicles.
Using the BlackVue App or Viewer, you can further customize the way it operates.
- 180° Image Rotation to accommodate your setup: install the camera the way you like. If the image comes out upside down, just activate this feature and it will fix the image orientation.
- Security LED ON/OFF (for stealth in Parking Mode).
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.
Set up (easily) and forget
BlackVue dashcams are very easy to install. Attach the front unit to the windshield behind the rear view mirror with the provided double-sided tape.
This way, the dashcam is invisible to the driver’s eye. Simply plug the power cords into the cigarette lighter / accessory power socket of your vehicle and it will automatically start recording as you turn ignition on (no need to push any button).
Once set, you can forget about it, knowing it will reliably record your drive.
Your videos are safe
Event Files Overwrite Protection: dashcams record in a loop, overwriting older files when the memory is full. BlackVue DR970X-2CH 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.
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.
Touch sensor – Tap the touch sensor to trigger Manual Event videos.
Format button – Hold to format the microSD card.
Secure microSD card access – Unplug the DC in power connector and pop the cover open to reveal the microSD card slot.

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 CMG100LTE 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 CMG100LTE you choose is compatible with your mobile carrier’s network.
Intelligent Parking Mode
BlackVue automatically switches to Parking Mode to monitor your parked vehicle. Thanks to video buffer, the few seconds leading to triggering events are also recorded. DR970X Series supports two Parking Mode options:
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.
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 32GB microSD card front and rear at the highest (Extreme) quality setting.
When an impact is detected, the dashcam creates a buffered Event video.
