Built-in impact & motion detection
Thanks to the internal G-sensor, BlackVue cameras can detect impacts and sudden changes in speed. They can also detect movements while parked. Please note the camera must be hardwired to the vehicle’s battery using a professional installation cable to use Parking Mode.
Videos files are stamped individually so you can easily find relevant titles in the video list or the BlackVue Viewer for Windows and Mac OS.
BLACKVUE Viewer (Windows / Mac)
Easily manage your video files with the free BlackVue Viewer program. Through the software, you can easily amend your BlackVue configuration settings.
With the Viewer package videos are displayed and ordered chronologically or by type (Normal/Event/Parking) to quickly identify and archive important footage.
Loop recording and format-free technology
Loop Recording is essential to allow for extended recording sessions. When the microSD card is full, the DR490L-2CH records over the oldest video files (or earliest footage of a single long recording) first in a seamless loop. Individual files can be marked as important to avoid being overwritten.
Format-Free Technology: BlackVue saves and organises files in a highly efficient way. This reduces the need for formatting the card and prevents file corruption even after multiple write cycles.
External GPS (Optional)
The external GPS receiver (approx. 1 meter / 39 inches) adds geolocation and speed data to your videos.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
The DR490L-2CH incorporates Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS). When active, your dash cam will detect and emit a sound alert when the vehicle is close to or crossing a line on the road. You can calibrate LDWS and set it to activate only above a certain speed (60, 80 or 100 Km/h).
You can calibrate LDWS and set it to activate only above a certain speed (60, 80 or 100 Km/h).
