How do I update the firmware on my BlackVue dash cam?

BlackboxMyCar Updated by BlackboxMyCar

Updating the firmware for your BlackVue dash cam is simple. To start, you should find your firmware on our BlackVue Downloads page. The instructions are also on the top of the page I just linked, with the firmware section at the bottom of that page.

To download your BlackVue firmware:

  1. Access the BlackVue Firmware Downloads page from your computer browser
  2. Download the latest firmware for your model from the DOWNLOADS page
  3. Unzip the downloaded firmware (ZIP file)
  4. Insert the BlackVue SD card in your computer using the USB reader provided with your dash cam
  5. Format the microSD card in the Viewer. On Mac, after clicking on the Format button, choose MS-DOS (FAT) in the Disk Utility
  6. Copy the BlackVue folder to the SD card
  7. Insert the SD card in your BlackVue dash cam and turn the power on to apply the upgrade
  8. The dash cam will reboot automatically after applying the upgrade, and start recording
