The BlackVue DR470-2CH is an upgrade of the DR430-2CH dash cam, but still lacks the WiFi and GPS features that are built into the DR650S-2CH dashcam. The BlackVue DR470 is identical to the DR430 except that the DR 470 boasts Full HD 1080p in the front and HD 720p in the rear. This dash cam is an excellent choice for those who want the higher video irresolution than what the DR430 offers, or want the video quality of the DR650S, but without all the bells and whistles such as wifi and built in GPS.
The main differences between the DR470-2CH and the DR650S-2CH are:
- GPS is built-in on the DR650S-2CH but optional on the DR470-2CH (can be added on via an external GPS antenna)
- No WiFi interface on the DR470-2CH
- DR470-2CH front camera is slightly smaller in size than the DR650S-2CH (rear cameras are the same size)
- The DR470-2CH is tamperproof, making it the perfect high resolution and reliable dash cam for fleet managers, parents, and TNC drivers (Uber, Lyft, taxi, etc). The DR470 now features a mechanism for securing the cover or "door" over the memory card, to ensure that no one has access to the vital recordings stored on the microSD card, nice! Use your own mini lock to secure the memory card, or a simple tamper-evident metal or plastic tie to prevent or deter anyone from accessing the memory card.
Note: This model includes either a 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB memory card. You may choose the size above. The memory card is provided by BlackVue and is already inside the DR470, ready to go! While the memory cards are removeable and the card slot will accept other brands of memory cards, we strongly suggest the use of only BlackVue memory cards in the BlackVue dashcams. The BlackVue OEM memory cards are industrial-grade and are designed to withstand the extreme high and low temperatures of being inside of hot and cold vehicles day in and day out, and they are also designed to cope with the constant read/write cycles of a high quality dashcam, without fail. To ensure your dashcam is always recording, stick with the most reliable memory cards on the market today!
In order to use "Parking Mode", we recommend the Power Magic Pro accessory to hardwire the dash cam to your car's fuse box. This will give the dash cam constant power for parking mode, while also ensuring the battery level does not fully drain.
