We are excited to announce that the BlackVue App is getting an update soon.
Planned for March 6, 2023, the update is a major redesign aimed at improving the user experience.
What you need to know
In the Explore Tab, you can browse content from the BlackVue community – check the Live footage from publicly shared cameras around the world, see which user-shared videos are trending, take a look at the global Event statistics or learn about the latest BlackVue-related news.
As stated above, the BlackVue App has traditionally been separated into two menus based on the connection method: direct Wi-Fi (“Connect to camera” menu) or over the Cloud (“Connect to Cloud” menu).
With the new app, the Camera tab becomes the one place from which you manage your cameras no matter how you connect to them.
Instead of having two separate menus, the Camera menu includes a toggle button to switch between Wi-Fi and Cloud connection. Whether you manage one or multiple cameras, we believe this should simplify your day-to-day experience with the app.
In the Camera tab, you can also manage your connected Parking Mode battery (Power Magic Ultra Battery) or your BlackVue SIM Card.
Event Map Tab
The Event Map Tab displays a heatmap of Event videos shared by BlackVue users. After you grant the BlackVue app access to your location, the map will center on you and show a view of your surroundings. The roads show different colors, depending on the density of BlackVue dashcam Events triggered on those roads. Playable videos will pop up in the form of small thumbnails on the map. You too can participate and contribute to the Event Map with your videos – by either sharing them manually or by setting up the auto-share feature.
To edit your profile, change your password or upgrade your plan, go to the Profile Tab. Here you can also check how much of the Live View, Playback/Downloads and Cloud Storage you used and see your Downloaded Videos. Tapping the “More” tab at the top of the screen takes you to a menu from where you can contact our Customer Support if you need help. You can also consult the App Manual or check some of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). The Safety Notice and our Terms & Policies can be accessed from this tab as well.
Before / AfterTo help navigate the new app, we listed the main menus of the “old” app and matched them with their “new” app equivalents.
