Designed to minimize overheating

Store the box unit in a cool location.

With standard dash cams, the main processor is located in the front camera, typically exposed to the sun. 
In the DR970X Box Series dash cams, the processor is located in the box unit, which can be installed in a cooler location of your vehicle.

Less stress on the microSD card

By keeping the box unit in a cool location, you can also minimize the stress on the microSD card, potentially increasing its lifespan. 

Designed for stealth

Smaller cameras and secure recording box unit.

Separate recording unit to store in a safe place

Unlike conventional dash cams where the microSD card is located in the front camera, the "Box" recording unit can be installed in a secure and/or hidden location of the vehicle, such as the glove compartment, under a seat or anywhere else out of sight. 

Smaller front camera

The front camera is 35% shorter and more compact than a regular front camera. This minimizes the likelihood of being spotted by a potential robber. 

This means in the event of a break-in, a thief would have a harder time either spotting the cameras or finding the Box unit that contains the videos.


Designed from the ground up to prevent tampering.

H.264 and H.265 Codec Support.

The DR970X Box 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.

More info

Speaker (in the front camera):
Your dash cam tells you when it turns on, shuts down or detects errors.

Accelerometer (in the front camera):
Detects impacts to trigger Event recording. Enables Parking Mode* when stationary for 5 minutes.

Automatically tags video files:
While driving, the 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).

Failure Alert
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.

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

with the Power Magic accessories.

Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your car is under protection while you are away.

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 Box 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 62 hours on a single 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.
