Redefining the Dashcam
The DR900S Series redefines expectations for dashcam video fidelity and storage efficiency.
With its 8-megapixel CMOS sensor in the main camera, the DR900S-2CH captures 4K Ultra High Definition video—four times as many pixels as Full HD. The rear Full HD Sony STARVIS™ image sensor ensures best image quality under any light. Thanks to the H.265 (HEVC) compression, your videos look better and file size is kept as small as ever.
BlackVue's Latest 4K UHD + FULL HD CLOUD DASHCAM
IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN
Front cam: 8 megapixels sensor / 4K Ultra High Definition (3840×2160 @30FPS).
Rear cam: 2.1 megapixels STARVIS™ sensor / Full HD (1920×1080 @30FPS).
The front camera’s ultra-wide 162-degree angle takes full advantage of the 4K UHD resolution. The rear camera records in Full HD at a 139-degree angle with outstanding low-light sensitivity (great for cars with tint). Your BlackVue captures critical details while driving or in Parking Mode.
With the free Over the Cloud add-on service, check on your car from anywhere, anytime.
SubiSpeed Installation Video - 2ch Earlier Model Shown
Kevin walks us through an installation on our 2015 STI. This installation is the same basic principle for all cars. There are really only a few wires to install so the process is much easier than most stereos and security systems. It's just about the same as hard wiring a radar detector.
Estimated time for installation is around 45 minutes to an hour depending on how well you tuck the wires. In this amount of time, most people can complete their installation with a factory look. All wires properly secured and tucked. Installation is similar for the new DR750S.
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 AND 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.
The Cloud Dashcam Standard
The DR900S is available as a single or dual-channel dashcam. Both are without compromise.
Both front and rear cameras feature Full HD Sony STARVIS™ image sensors for best image quality under any light. Also included are GPS logger, Wi-Fi, Cloud connectivity, impact and motion detection. All this in a stealthy design that never gets in the way of your driving. The new sensor is one of the key upgrades over previous models.
No need for a screen: with the free BlackVue app, connect to your dashcam whenever you need. You can mount a WiFi hotspot in your car, use existing networks, or run a hotspot off your phone.
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.
BLACKVUE APP (IOS, ANDROID) AND 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.
BlackVue Over the Cloud

Back up important videos to the free Cloud storage.
Play and download videos from your dashcam’s memory or the Cloud from anywhere.
Enjoy Two-way Voice Communication with the driver from the app through the BlackVue’s integrated speaker and mic.
Intelligent Parking Mode monitoring
Available with the Power Magic Pro
Rest easy, knowing that your car is being monitored while you are away. BlackVue automatically switches to Parking Mode to monitor you parked vehicle, but only writes to the memory card when something happens (motion or impact detected). Thanks to the video buffer, the few seconds leading to the triggering event are also recorded.
Scheduled Reboot: Electronic recording devices can benefit from restarting between long recording sessions. When hardwiring a dashcam for Parking Mode, it may stay on for days. In some extreme cases, unexpected errors can occur. To avoid this, the DR900S Series features the option to schedule a daily automatic reboot (by default in the middle of night) to minimize potential errors. Reboots can happen only when the dashcam is in Parking Mode and not writing any data to the microSD card. This means no Normal driving, Event, or Parking Mode recording will be interrupted by a scheduled reboot.
Super stealthy: 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.
Other Optional Items
Add a Fuses
In addition to the Power Magic Pro, we also recommend you purchase two add a fuses with fuses. We used this in our install, and it just keeps your wiring neat and safe.
Just piggy back this wire on top of a fuse that has accessory power, and another one that has constant power in your cabin and you're good to go!
NOTE: These are mini ATM add a fuses. If your vehicle uses low profile ATM fuses (ie FR-S / BRZ / 86), you will need to purchase additional ATM fuses to match your original fuse you replace. These are not included.
Power Magic EZ ODB PnP Power Supply
If you want to just plug something into your vehicle to manage power going to your BlackVue, this is the solution. Through the use of and ODB splitter you can still retain use of this port as well for data or anything else you usually plug into your ODB port.
Power Magic EZ enables Parking Mode monitoring using your vehicle’s battery. Simply connects to your vehicle’s OBD port. Includes timer and voltage cut-off for battery protection.
Turn your installation into a plug and play ordeal!
