BlackVue DR970X

4K-UHD 2CH Dash Cam

When only the best will do

With its 8MP CMOS sensor, the BlackVue DR970X-2CH captures 4K 2160P UHD video – four times as many pixels as Full HD; combined with true 4K 2-channel technology, BlackVue brings a whole new level to dash cams.

Capture everything front and rear​

Front camera: 8 megapixels CMOS sensor recording in 4K Ultra High Definition (3840×2160) at 30FPS.
Rear camera: 2.1 megapixels Sony STARVIS™ recording in Full HD (1920×1080) at 30FPS.
The front camera’s wide 155-degree angle takes full advantage of the 4K UHD resolution. The rear camera records in Full HD at a 139-degree angle with outstanding low-light sensitivity.
Native Parking Mode with built-in voltage monitor to protect your vehicle battery (hardwiring cable included).

With the free BlackVue Cloud service, check on your car from anywhere, anytime.

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 captures 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.

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 the 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.

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.

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.

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.

BlackVue App (iOS, Android) and Viewer (Windows/Mac/Web)

Easily manage your video files

Easily change your BlackVue configuration settings and browse your videos on your mobile or computer.

With the BlackVue App, connect to your BlackVue to access files and check real-time Live View for easy setup of your dashcam.
With the SD Card Viewer, connect your dashcam’s microSD card to your computer to view and backup footage in bulk, as well as export clips, remove sound, etc.

The Web Viewer lets you manage your Cloud-connected dashcams from any web browser at blackvuecloud.com.

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 CM100GLTE you choose is compatible with your mobile carrier’s network.

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.

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 access to the microSD card and the cable connectors.

Triple protection

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