Data Consumption (estimates)
When you access Remote Live View from your BlackVue dashcam over the Cloud, your dashcam streams data to the Cloud server, which is then sent to your device.
Use the table below to assess your data needs, based on your Live View usage estimate.
To take best advantage of BlackVue Cloud–including Parking Mode Notifications–the use of a dedicated mobile router is recommended.
Most users can get started with a 4GB data plan from their local mobile operator.
Remote Live View (Real time streaming)
|Bitrate||600Kbps (Kilobits per second)|
|1 minute||4.5MB (Megabytes)|
|1 hour||270MB (Megabytes)|
|24 hours||6.48GB (Gigabytes)|
Unlike Remote Live View, which uses a video feed optimized for streaming, Video Backup and Playback use the original video files stored by the dashcam on the microSD card.
You can use the table below to get an understanding of the amount of data needed to back up video files or play back a recorded video.
|Model||Format||Video segment length||Quality setting||File size*|
|Full HD||1 Minute||EXTREME||187.2MB|
|DR650S-2CH/ DR650GW-2CH||Full HD|
|DR650S-1CH/ DR650GW-1CH||Full HD||1 Minute||HIGHEST||76.7MB|
* Actual file size may differ slightly.
Data usage is exactly equal to the Live View data usage (refer to the Live View tab)
Live Auto-Upload saves a real-time video feed from one of your cameras (front or rear/interior) to the Cloud in case of Event (Manually triggered or triggered by the impact sensor). This allows to keep some evidence even in case of theft, as the camera saves the Event to the Cloud in real time in addition to the full resolution video saved on the microSD card.How to use Live Auto-Upload
