Released in October 2021, the new DR900X-1CH Plus is quite literally the latest and greatest 4K single-channel dash cam from BlackVue. With the new CPU, improved image processing and Seamless Pairing with your smartphone, this model is well placed on the leaderboard of the high-end dash cam market.

The 4K Ultra HD resolution contains exactly four times as many pixels as Full HD, 3840 pixels x 2160 lines to be exact, equivalent to 8.3 million pixels. For a dashboard camera, this can mean the difference between an unusable pixelated blur and a readable licence plate, especially at speed or in low light conditions. To take even greater advantage of the extra resolution, this model packs a massive ultra-wide 162-degree lens for incredible clarity and detail from edge to edge. The DR900X Plus performs exceptionally well at night and in dark environments (sample footage) while maintaining a low level of "digital noise".

There are two main improvements that make DR900X Plus stand out compared to the previous generation's DR900S: built-in Low-Voltage protection for Parking Recording and an optional BlackVue LTE Module making the connectivity to BlackVue Cloud so much easier! In addition to the "old" approach of using an external Wi-Fi hotspot signal for optional Cloud connectivity, the DR900X Plus has a MicroUSB port that you can plug in the optional BlackVue CM100 LTE Module, giving the camera the ability to stay connected to the BlackVue Cloud anytime, anywhere using just a SIM card with a data plan.

As for Parking Recording, the DR900X Plus can be hardwired directly to the vehicle's electrical system via the included in the package 3-pin Hardwire Cable hence no need for the optional Power Magic Pro anymore! Alternatively, it can also be powered by a Battery Pack for the ultimate parking recording protection. It supports Buffered Recording with Motion and Impact Detection and Time Lapse Recording.

Last but not least: if you're on the fence deciding between the front-only and the front+rear versions of the DR900X Plus, from now on the single-channel model can be upgraded to dual-channel (front and rear) simply by adding the Rear Camera Kit at a later stage! With all these improvements, all the BlackVue "must-have" features are present in this high-end device as well, including GPS logging, dual-band Wi-Fi, voice notifications, audio and loop recording - all in a premium quality, discreet and compact design.

Key Features

  • 8-megapixel OmniVision OS08A10 image sensor for 4K Ultra High Definition video capture. In other words, 4K Ultra HD is four times as many pixels as Full HD.
  • The powerful HiSilicon Hi3559-V200 CPU allows for 25 Megabits video bitrate.
  • Can be upgraded to front+rear anytime by adding the Rear Camera Kit thanks to the presence of the rear camera socket.

  • Supports all existing BlackVue Parking Recordings Add-ons, from the Power Magic Pro to Battery Packs for an ultimate parking recording coverage.
  • Seamless Pairing with your smartphone, in conjunction with the built-in dual-band 5GHz Wi-Fi, makes the setup, configuration and footage download a breeze.
  • BlackVue Cloud is even more accessible by plugging in the optional BlackVue LTE Module, or by pairing the camera to an existing Wi-Fi hotspot signal in (or near) the vehicle.
  • The built-in GPS receiver logs your vehicle’s location, speed and current time so you can later visualize its position on the map.
  • Audio recording (on by default, yet can be turned off) adds more context to your footage.
  • Based on supercapacitors, with the max operating temperature of 70°C and high temperature cut off this camera can work well in New Zealand summer.
