Are you driving a taxi, Lyft or Uber vehicle for a living? This dashcam is for you.
BlackVue DR970X-2CH IR monitors the road ahead in 4K Ultra HD and the interior of your vehicle in Full HD, making it the best dashcam for taxi or ride hailing drivers.
The interior IR (infrared) camera captures every detail of the cabin even in the dark, so you can always feel safe at the wheel or when leaving you vehicle parked.

4K/Full HD Cloud Taxi Dashcam

4K Ultra HD (front) and Full HD (interior) cameras.

Wide 155-degree view angle front and ultrawide 180-degree interior-facing camera.

The Interior infrared (IR) camera truly sees in the dark, even pitch-black lighting conditions, thanks to integrated infrared LEDs that activate automatically based on the ambient light.

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.

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.

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).

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 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. Learn more about Parking Mode.

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.

Tamper-Proof Case (Optional)

The BTC-1C is a special-purpose mount designed to prevent tampering.
It replaces your dashcam’s original mount. The side cover, fastened by two hex screws, blocks the access to the microSD card and the cable connectors.

Triple protection

  • Locks the dashcam’s angle via an hex screw to prevent rotation.
  • Blocks the access to the microSD card slot.
  • Protects against the unplugging of the power and USB cables.

Parking Mode Kits

Parking Mode Batteries

blackvue-parking-mode-batteries-b-130x

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.

And also:

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.
