Cloud FOTA upgrade is now available for DR900S and DR750S models, introducing an easy way to upgrade your firmware remotely.
This means you will be able to update your dashcam over the Cloud starting from the next firmware version.
All BlackVue users can already update their Wi-Fi-compatible dashcam firmware using FOTA (Firmware Over The Air): download the firmware to your phone using the BlackVue app, then connect to your BlackVue in Wi-Fi and update via the BLACKVUE WIFI menu.
The new Cloud FOTA greatly streamlines the upgrade process.
Compatibility and requirements:
In order to support Cloud FOTA, you must first upgrade the firmware using the “traditional” method (FOTA via direct Wi-Fi or using a computer to copy the firmware to the microSD card).
If your current firmware for DR900S is lower than version 1.008 or DR750S is lower than version 1.013, please update the firmware manually this time to stay ready for the next firmware update that could be performed via Cloud FOTA.
You must have a BlackVue Cloud account and your dashcam must be registered and connected to the Cloud.
How to use Cloud FOTA:
Upgrading your firmware over the Cloud is actually simpler than doing it over Wi-Fi or with the BlackVue Viewer.
Here are the steps to follow:
Of course, to use this feature, a new firmware must be available in the first place. If you try updating while your dashcam already has the latest firmware, a popup will open with the message “Firmware is up to date”.
