BlackVue Power Magic Pro
The BlackVue Power Magic uses advanced power management to ensure your cars battery stays healthy. The system works by having pre-set cut off voltages to prevent the camera from continuing to operate if the cars/trucks battery drops below a safe level. On 12V vehicles the appropriate cut off voltage is 11.8 Volts.

PARKING MODE SWITCH
Parking Mode Switch ON: Power Magic Pro supplies your BlackVue with power even if the ignition of the vehicle is turned off, until it reaches voltage cut-off or timeout value. Parking Mode Switch OFF: Power Magic Pro supplies power to your dashcam only when vehicle ignition is on.
TIMER CUT-OFF SETTINGS
You can configure Power Magic Pro to supply power to your BlackVue for a preset duration, from 6 hours to infinity. The timer function is only active when the vehicle’s ignition is off and automatically stops if ignition is on. * Regardless of the timer setting, the power is cut as soon as the voltage drops below the configured voltage cut-off value.
LOW VOLTAGE CUT-OFF SETTINGS
When vehicle’s ignition is off, Power Magic Pro checks your vehicle’s battery voltage periodically while powering your BlackVue. If power drops below the set cut-off level, Power Magic Pro automatically cuts power to the dashcam, thus saving your vehicle’s battery life.
About Parking Mode
Dashcams are designed to record your drive, but did you know BlackVue dashboard cameras can also monitor your car when you are away? It is a very useful feature to have if you are worried about hit-and-runs or vandalism on your parked vehicle. All BlackVue dashcams feature Parking Mode monitoring. Here we share a few things to know about Parking Mode.
How does the dashcam record in Parking Mode?
In Parking Mode, your BlackVue is active all the time but does not write to the memory card, unless:
- Movement is detected by the front or rear camera (sensitivity can be adjusted or turned off). In this case, it creates a one-minute Parking video recording that starts a few seconds before the trigger*.
- An impact or vibration is picked up by the dashcam’s accelerometer (sensitivity can be adjusted). In this case, it creates a one-minute Event video recording that starts a few seconds before the trigger*.
*The BlackVue constantly keeps the last few seconds of video in its buffer memory so as to catch the actions that led to the trigger.
What are the advantages of Parking Mode over Normal Mode?
In Parking Mode, because it only records when something happens, your BlackVue minimizes the risks of overwriting important footage during long Parking Mode sessions. It also reduces the stress on the microSD card, which helps extend the memory card’s lifespan. Additionally, the GPS module is turned off during Parking Mode, which reduces power consumption.
I have a dual-channel dashcam. Does Parking Mode work for both cameras?
The Parking videos can be triggered by motion detected by either the front or the rear (or interior) camera. The Event videos are triggered by vibrations detected by the accelerometer located in the front camera. In either case, the dashcam will save videos recorded by both the front and rear cameras.
Can I deactivate Parking Mode?
Yes, Parking Mode can be deactivated in your camera’s settings. In this case, the dashcam will continue recording in Normal Mode as long as it is powered, even if the vehicle is stationary for more than five minutes.
What do I need to use Parking Mode?
By default, BlackVue dashcams come with a male cigar lighter power adapter to plug in your vehicle’s cigar socket. On the majority of vehicles, this cigar lighter socket is not powered unless ignition is on. For this reason, Parking Mode usually requires to hardwire the dashcam to the vehicle’s battery or to use a dedicated battery pack.
