BlackVue continue to strive for excellence with further improvements to their market leading 4K - 970 series dashcams, with the hotly anticipated 2024 release of the DR970X-2CH PLUS the successor to the DR970X-2CH (2023 release). 

What more has been improved since the 2023 upgrade to the CPU?

  • The front camera now boasts the latest Sony Starvis 2 image sensor 
  • Larger aperture from f2.8 to f1.7 to boost the cameras performance in low light conditions
  • Faster shutter speed to reduce motion blur
  • Larger video bit rate to enable more data to be saved in a clip so better quality footage
  • Rear camera has more zoom and less viewing angle and BlackVue state it has improved the rear cameras performance with license plates
  • A change to how an event file is locked it now includes 10 seconds prior to event in the file versus 5 seconds.

In DriverCam’s opinion a premium dashcam packed with the latest technology and features you would want in your dashcam, the best of the best.

Here are the key features you should consider:

  • Front camera: resolution - crystal clear TRUE 4K video quality from the latest Sony Starvis 2 sensor (8.4MP), High Dynamic Range, 146° Wide Viewing Angle, Manual Lock/Save Video Button
  • Rear camera: resolution – Full HD from the Sony Starvis sensor (2.1MP) High Dynamic Range, 131° wide viewing angle for increased zoom.
  • Shape: Cylindrical, low-profile and discreet design (11.8cm wide x 3.6cm high x 4.7cm deep) with no screen.
  • Storage capacity: Huge! Up to 512GB, which equates to at least 30 hours of footage before automatic loop recording begins (on “highest” bitrate setting).
  • Tagged recordings: All recordings tagged with your GPS location, time and speed which can be visualized on Blackvues App’s map plus also Blackvue Web Viewer (PC/Mac).
  • Protected recordings: G-sensor detection automatically locks and protects event files (e.g. impact, spinning, sudden acceleration and deceleration) from overwriting. The sensitivity is fully customisable.
  • Free Blackvue App: download footage (ultra fast 5GHz), adjust settings or show/transfer footage to Police at the scene of an accident. Provides instant video evidence when required.
  • 2 ways to access your camera - Blackvue Mobile App, Blackvue Web Viewer (PC/MAC free download, using SD card)
  • Built-in Wi-Fi (2.4GHz & ultra fast 5GHz) allows you to view live video, change settings, playback and download videos to your mobile device (within a 10 metre range around the car).
  • Motion Detection Parking Surveillance – the camera keeps recording when you are away from your vehicle, option to adjust sensitivity and settings to tailor to your parking environment and your needs (hardwire installation required).
  • 4G LTE CLOUD Connectivity – This revolutionary feature allows users to remotely access the dashcam anywhere via the use of a SIM card (live view, access settings etc). Blackvue LTE module sold separately, SIM card to be provided by customer.
  • AND its small - don’t be deceived by pictures, its only 11.8cm wide x 3.6cm high x 4.7cm deep. Being a tubular shape and jet black, the dashcam also blends into the majority of interiors seamlessly.
  • Power: 3 options – via cigarette lighter, included hardwire kit, or a parking recording battery pack. 
  • Warranty: 2 year manufacturers warranty

Optional Accessories

  • Battery Packs for extended long durations of parking recording.
  • Memory Cards, we'd recommend the largest card that fits your budget, running 2 cameras and one that is 4K we'd recommend 128GB or larger, our top pick is our 256GB Samsung Pro Endurance card (storing approx. 10 hours of footage) or 512GB Viofo card (storing approx. 20 hours of footage). 


The DR970X-2CH Plus can either be hardwired to the vehicles fuse panel, plugged directly into a cigarette lighter socket, or connected to a BlackVue parking recording battery for maximum parking recording coverage.

Simple installation: Just plug the dashcam into the cigarette lighter socket of your vehicle.  

Hardwired installation: To enable parking protection mode, use the hardwiring cable to power the dashcam.

The installation process for the DR970X Plus is identical to the other BlackVue X Series dash cams. Our mobile dash cam installation service is available in the Auckland region, please make an enquiry for a quote for hardwiring professional installation.
