The Single-Channel Dashcam Benchmark
Smart, Reliable and Connected Dashcam
The DR900S Series redefines expectations for dashcam video fidelity and storage efficiency.
With its 8-megapixel CMOS sensor, the DR900S-1CH captures 4K Ultra High Definition video—four times as many pixels as Full HD. All the imaging prowess of your dashcam is kept intact thanks to the most advanced video encoding technology: the H.265 (HEVC) compression means your videos look better and file size is kept as small as ever.

4K Ultra High Definition Capture
Ultra-crisp videos, not just on 4K monitors
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 pixelation.
*HD = 1280×720 pixels (0.92 million pixels);
Full HD = 1920×1080 (2.07 million pixels) = 2.25 x HD pixel count
4K UHD = 3840×2160 (8.29 million pixels) = 4 x Full HD or 9 x HD pixel count

The Best Compression Technology
4 times the resolution. Same recording time!
Along with the regular H.264 codec, the DR900S Series features H.265, also called High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), the leading standard in 4K recording and broadcasting.
With H.265, 4K UHD video file size is similar to that of Full HD H.264. In other words, you get 4 times bigger and better images without sacrificing recording time.
Increase your recording time in Full HD.
Tip to maximize recording time: set Codec to H.265 and Quality to Normal. Ideal for long Parking Mode sessions.
Built-in GPS & Dual-band Wi-Fi
GPS adds location and speed data to your videos
Speed: speed data will be overlaid in the video (can be turned off in the settings).
You can set speed display in Kilometers per hour (Km/h) or Miles per hour (Mph).
Location: visualize your vehicle’s location in the BlackVue App or Viewer’s Map.
Fast transfer to your phone with 5Ghz Wi-Fi
The dual-band 2.4-5GHz Wi-Fi lets you download dashcam videos to a smartphone at blazing speed and allows Over the Cloud functionalities via any Internet-enabled Wi-Fi network. With BlackVue’s Sub-Stream technology, download Quick Play versions of the original videos for even faster review.
Built-in Impact & Motion Detection
Mark important files and enable Parking Mode
While driving, your BlackVue detects impacts and sudden changes in speed. While parked, it also detects movements*.
Videos files are marked accordingly 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.
(*) For Parking Mode recording, an external battery pack (Power Magic Battery Pack) or a hardwiring kit (Power Magic Pro) is required.
Sleek Design And Controls
Multifunction button and customizable proximity sensor
BlackVue DR900S’ stealthy design incorporates easy access to useful functions.
Proximity sensor: toggle audio recording ON and OFF by simply waving your hand in front of it. The sensor can also be configured to trigger Manual Event videos in the settings.
Wi-Fi button: turn Wi-Fi ON/OFF (short press), reset your Wi-Fi password (hold until voice prompt, then short press) or format the microSD card (hold until voice prompt, and then hold again). All actions are confirmed by a voice prompt.
BlackVue App (iOS, Android) & Viewer (Windows/Mac)
Easily manage your video files
Both the BlackVue App and Viewer are free to download and use.
They let you easily change your BlackVue configuration settings and browse through your videos in an intuitive way.
With the BlackVue App, connect to your BlackVue in Wi-Fi to access files and check realtime Live View for easy setup and positioning of your dashcam.
Optimized File Management
Event Files Overwrite Protection
Dashcams record in a loop, overwriting older files when the memory is full. BlackVue DR900S-2CH 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.
Scheduled Reboots (see Parking Mode section below)
Your BlackVue comes equipped with a U1 (16GB, 32GB) or U3 microSD Card (64GB, 128GB), guaranteeing high transfer speed and tested for durability.
High Temperature Cut-Off
Higher heat endurance
- Endures higher operation temperature than earlier models
- Automatically cuts off the operation when temperature reaches 80 degree Celsius
- Protects the product from the harm of over temperature
Tamper-Proof Case (Optional)
Block access to cable connectors and Format button
The BlackVue Tamper-Proof Case is a security accessory for BlackVue DR900S Series dashcams. It blocks physical access to the microSD card slot and microSD format button, and prevents unplugging the power and coaxial cables, thus highly reducing risks of data tampering.
Intelligent Parking Mode Monitoring
Peace of mind with extra security when you are away from your car
With Power Magic Accessories, you can rest easy, knowing that your car is being monitored while you are away. BlackVue automatically switches to Parking Mode to monitor your parked vehicle.
Two available modes:
- Time Lapse mode (with buffered Events) > Select “Time lapse”.
- Motion & Impact Detection mode (with region-based motion detection) > Select “Motion & Impact detection”.
Thanks to the video buffer, the few seconds leading to the triggering events are also recorded.
Note: in Time Lapse mode, only the impact Event videos include buffering. In Motion & Impact Detection mode, both motion and impact videos include buffering.
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.
Schedule a daily automatic reboot (optional-by default at night) to minimize potential errors. Reboots happen only if the dashcam is in Parking Mode and not writing data to the microSD card. This means no Normal driving, Event, or Parking Mode recording can be interrupted by a scheduled reboot.
If your dashcam is connected to the Cloud Service, you will receive instant push notification to your smartphone if there’s an impact detected when you’re away from your car.
BlackVue DR900S Series allows you to 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.
