Native Parking Mode

With optional Hardwiring cable
DR590X can be hardwired to your vehicle’s fuse panel for Parking Mode with the optional Hardwiring cable. 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
DR590X Series is also compatible with all BlackVue Parking Mode Kits and Batteries.

Manage Videos Easily with the BlackVue App and Viewer

The BlackVue App (iOS/Android) and Viewer (Windows/Mac OS) are free to download and use.
Both allow you to change settings and review videos sorted by time and type (Normal/Event/Parking).
With the BlackVue App, connect via Wi-Fi to your dash​cam to retrieve videos on the spot.

Built-in Wi-Fi and Optional GPS

Built-in Wi-Fi:
DR590X Series features built-in Wi-Fi to let you connect with the BlackVue App. A button lets you turn Wi-Fi on/off.

Additionally, you can configure the Wi-Fi activation behavior in the settings (Auto Turn On, Auto Turn Off).

USB port:
The USB port lets you connect a GPS receiver.

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.

blackvue-micro-sd-adaptive-format-free

Built-in Impact & Motion Detection

Automatically tags important files
While driving, your BlackVue detects impacts and sudden changes in speed. While parked, it also detects movements*.

Use the filters in the BlackVue App and Viewer
All videos are tagged (Normal, Event, Parking Mode motion or time lapse), so that you can easily find the relevant ones in the BlackVue Viewer for Windows and Mac OS or the BlackVue App for Android and iOS.

External GPS Receiver (Optional)

The External GPS Receiver connects to the USB port to add speed and location data to your videos.
Speed:
 speed data–in Km/h or Mph–will be overlaid in the video (can be turned off in the settings).
Location: you can visualize the location of your vehicle in the BlackVue Viewer’s Map during video playback.

Parking Mode Support

The DR590X Series is compatible with Parking Mode. In Parking Mode, your dashcam monitors your parked vehicle, recording videos when it detects movement or impact. It also includes the few seconds before the triggering event, thanks to buffered recording. You will need a 3-wire Hardwiring cable or Power Magic Battery Pack or Ultra Battery to enable this feature. Find more info about Parking Mode here (link opens in new tab).

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.

THE SONY STARVIS DIFFERENCE

The Sony STARVIS™ image sensor that equips the front camera of the DR590X Series models delivers outstanding low-light performance.

Additionally, it features Night Vision, which can be activated from the settings, further enhancing details in dark surroundings.

Even with Night Vision OFF, the STARVIS sensor outperforms regular CMOS sensors as you can see in the comparison shots below:
