H.264 and H.265 Codec Support.

The DR970X Plus Series features H.265, also called High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), the leading standard in 4K recording and broadcasting. H.265 ensures the best video quality. The more widely compatible H.264 is also supported.

Higher bitrate for uncompromising video quality.

When using HEVC, the 4K front camera can record at a high bitrate of up to 60 megabits per second, which lets the camera deliver amazing artifact-free image quality in even the most complex fast-moving scenes.

Worried about large files over the Cloud or Wi-Fi? 

BlackVue’s Sub-Stream technology embeds Quick Play–under 5MB–versions of the videos in the original files. Quick Play files allow for instant buffer-free playback over the Cloud or a Wi-Fi connection. If needed, you can also play the original full resolution videos for maximum quality.

Unlock Mobile Hotspot Function

Turn your BlackVue into a mobile internet router for up to five devices concurrently. This means you and your passengers can now use your BlackVue’s internet on your laptop, portable game console, tablet or mobile.

To connect to the BlackVue, simply open your devices’ Wi-Fi menu, select the BlackVue and enter the dashcam’s Wi-Fi password.

Note: when purchasing, make sure the CM100G LTE you choose is compatible with your mobile carrier’s network.

Easy Installation

12V adapter and hardwiring kit both included in the box

More info

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 12V 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.

For Parking Mode support, follow the hardwiring instructions (hardwiring harness included). 

TIP: want to check the exact field of view of the cameras before sticking the mount to your windshield?
Power the dash cam using the 12V adapter cable and connect with the BlackVue App (iOS/Android). You can check the Live View from the camera via your phone to position the camera in the perfect spot.

Event File
More info

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.

Native Parking Mode

Let your BlackVue watch over your vehicle 24/7. Hardwiring cable included.

More info

Hardwiring cable included
DR970X Plus 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 Plus Series is also compatible with all BlackVue Parking Mode Kits and Batteries.

Parking Mode Kits

Parking Mode Batteries


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 Plus supports two Parking Mode options:

Motion & Impact Detection mode

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

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 149 hours (over 6 days) on a 64GB 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.
