A cloud-compatible BlackVue is more than just a dash cam, it’s an advanced video surveillance system for your car, watching over your vehicle, informing you immediately of incidents such as impacts, via Push Notifications to your Apple or Android phone.

By adding the optional BlackVue CM100LTE 4G connection module (compatible with DR770X and DR970X models) or a similar wi-fi hotspot from one of the major UK mobile networks, you can connect to your

BlackVue dash cam anytime, from anywhere, and check on your car with Remote Live View. Play recorded video clips remotely and buck-up important ones to the Cloud or your phone. Monitor progress and access location data with realtime Live Tracking. Enjoy two-way communications with the driver via the BlackVue app and your camera’s internal loudspeaker and mic.

Alternatively the new BlackVue DR970X /DR770X-2CH LTE takes matters one step further by having an in-built SIM card slot – so no need for an external 4G link, simply activate the supplied SMARTY SIM and the DR970X/DR770X-2CH LTE is ready for always-on Cloud-connectivity.


Simply add the new BlackVue CM100LTE connectivity module and a 4G Data SIM card to any BlackVue X-Series model (DR770X/DR970X) setup to enjoy always-on connectivity to BlackVue Cloud.

That means whenever and wherever, you’ll receive notifications from the BlackVue app should something happen to your vehicle, giving you the option to view the footage remotely. And you’ll always have access to Cloud-based features like Live View, Video Back-Up and Real Time Tracking.

The CM100LTE is supplied with a SMARTY SIM card. Activate via the SMARTY App / Website to unlock a generous 2GB monthly data allowance for only £5.00 per month, the best value data plan available in the UK. Alternatively use your own choice of Network Provider, SIM card and data plan.

Data Consumption


Remote Live View

When you access Remote Live View from your BlackVue dashcam over the Cloud, your dashcam streams data to the Cloud server, which is then sent to your device.

Use the table below to assess your data needs, based on your Live View usage estimate.

To take best advantage of BlackVue Cloud, including Parking Mode Notifications, the use of a CM100LTE communication module (for DR770X and DR970X) or a dedicated mobile router is required.

Users of the DR770X-2CH LTE, DR970X-2CH LTE and CM100LTE can enjoy 2GB of monthly data courtesy of the supplied SMARTY SIM.

Remote Live View (Real time streaming)

Format D1 (720×480)
Bitrate 600Kbps (Kilobits per second)
1 minute 4.5MB (Megabytes)
1 hour 270MB (Megabytes)
24 hours 6.48GB (Gigabytes) 

Unlike Remote Live View, which uses a video feed optimised for streaming, Video Backup and Playback use the original video files stored by the dashcam on the microSD card.

Live Auto-Upload

Data usage is exactly equal to the Live View data usage (Please refer to the Live View tab)

Live Auto-Upload saves a real-time video feed from one of your cameras (front or rear/interior) to the Cloud in case of Event (Manually triggered or triggered by the impact sensor). This allows to keep some evidence even in case of theft, as the camera saves the Event to the Cloud in real time in addition to the full resolution video saved on the microSD card.
