BlackVue Cloud only requires minimum data to be connected to the internet.
When you access Remote Live View from your BlackVue dashcam over the Cloud, your dashcam streams data to the Cloud server, which is then sent to your device.
Remote Live View
Use the table below to assess your data needs, based on your Live View usage estimate.
To take the best advantage of BlackVue Cloud–including Parking Mode Notifications–the use of a dedicated mobile router is recommended.
Most users can get started with a 4GB data plan from their local mobile operator.
Backup / Playback
Unlike Remote Live View, which uses a video feed optimized for streaming, Video Backup and Playback use the original video files stored by the dashcam on the microSD card.
You can use the table below to get an understanding of the amount of data needed to back up video files or play back a recorded video.
* Actual file size may differ slightly.
Live Auto-Upload saves a real-time video feed from one of your cameras (front or rear/interior) to the Cloud in case of an Event (Manually triggered or triggered by the impact sensor). This allows keeping some evidence even in case of theft, as the camera saves the Event to the Cloud in real-time in addition to the full-resolution video saved on the microSD card.
Data usage is exactly equal to the Live View data usage.
File Download / Upload
When you download a file to the Internal Memory or upload a file to Cloud, the data is used according to the file size (e.g. a 50MB video file will use 50MB data).
Note: The above details of data consumption are approximations only and the actual data consumption may differ depending on the usage conditions of the user.
