BlackVue's newest model, the DR470-2CH is a mid-range dual-lens dashcam that fits between the DR430-2CH and the DR650S-2CH in the BlackVue two-channel (two separate lenses) product lineup. BlackVue's new 470 is almost identical to the also-just-released DR450-1CH, except for the addition of a separate rear camera on the DR470-2CH that is designed to mount in the rear windshield to record what is going on behind your car (the DR450-1CH only has the front-facing camera). With simple plug-and-play operation, you can be safely recording both in front of and behind your car in a matter of minutes!
Coming in at a slightly higher price point than the BlackVue DR430-2CH dashcam, the DR470 is an excellent choice option for those who would like the higher 1080p video resolution (as compared to the DR430's 720p front camera resolution), but who also may not necessarily need all the additional bells and whistles of some of the more advanced BlackVue cameras such as the DR650S-2CH.
The main differences between the DR470-2CH and the DR650S-2CH are:
The DR470-2CH deserves the consideration of fleet managers and others (parents, rideshare drivers, etc) who may be looking for a tamper-proof in-car audio and video recording solution. 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!
The DR470-2CH includes FREE priority ground shipping within the continental United States. Expedited shipping may be selected during checkout for an additional fee. International shipping is not available on this item, except to Canada or Mexico.
