BlackVue cameras have the most versatile Dash cam system available in the market today. Unfortunately, there are so many owners of BlackVue vehicle cameras who are not aware that they’re missing out on the best features these cameras have to offer.
For example, most BlackVue vendors offer the cameras with the Power Magic Pro which is great for saving your car from a discharged battery but customers find it hard to install and even professional installers have been known to install them improperly causing the cameras not to work in parking mode.
Because of this confusion, We are now introducing an easier way to power your cameras, with an OBD power connector. The Snap-on OBD Power Connector connects to your vehicle’s OBD port. with one snap, your cameras are powered for drive and Park mode making installation quick and easy for customers or professional installers.
The OBD power connector is included free with your purchase.
If you have a sensor module already plugged into your vehicle’s OBD port – we can supply you with a Y connector – to allow you to have both the cameras and your module safely installed in the same OBD port.
With its cylindrical design, you can create a 360-degree view by rolling the cameras inward. You will have a view of the inside of your vehicle while viewing the surrounding area through your vehicle windows. Trucks and SUVs have a particular height advantage which is perfect for capturing chest to face at a close range as well as recording long range 360-degree views. Regular passenger cars may need to have their cameras positioned lower by just a few inches on the windshield – to capture faces of people standing close to their vehicle.
When you place your cameras in the 360-degree position, You must rotate the video image for viewing. To do so, connect to the cameras WiFi signal and press the cog wheel to get to settings.
Choose the firmware settings on top then, select Basic. Afterward, go to Rear Camera at the bottom of the screen, and turn on Video Rotation. Now you are viewing completely around your vehicle – when you toggle between the front and back camera.
Remote Viewing & Notifications
BlackVue gives you 3 ways to view your cameras. One way is through a direct WiFi connection from your cameras to your phone.

Which brings us to Stealth Mode and Cloud Recording
