** sorry this model has sold out, check out the NEW 2024 release 970X-1CH PLUS **


Released in March 2023 the new DR970X-1CH is the successor to the popular DR900X-1CH Plus. An upgrade to the CPU provides an improvement in image quality over the 900X-1CH Plus, offering clearer details in challenging lighting conditions.

The DR970X-1CH provides 4K Ultra High Definition video capture using the new upgraded CPU for a clearer image. It also boasts an 8 megapixel CMOS sensor.

The 155° wide angle takes full advantage of the 4K resolution.

4K: The front camera records 4K Ultra High Definition video (3840x2160) at 30fps. 4K UHD is four times as many pixels as Full HD. This is a huge difference, and it shows. License plates can be made out more clearly and from further away. Besides, you don’t need a 4K monitor to appreciate 4K videos. Even on a Full HD monitor, you can zoom in much further without any visible pixilation occurring.

Effortless Setup: Simply connect to your dashcam without leaving the BlackVue App. 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: 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).

Built-in Impact & Motion Detection: 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).

Parking Protection Mode: Using the included hardwiring cable, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your car is under protection while you are away. The dashcam automatically switches into Parking Protection Mode to monitor your parked vehicle (requires hardwiring).
