Installing PC/Webcam Device Drivers
To install the drivers for your Black Box in order to use it as a PC Webcam, find the CD
that came packaged with your camera. This CD contains four file folders containing the
drivers for the camera based on your PC operating system. For Windows 7 and
Windows 8 64bit users, please use the folder titled Win XP 64. Windows 7 and 8 32 bit
operating system users should select Win XP.
Since there is not an executable file for installing the drivers, you will need to go the
Device Manager inside your Windows OS and select the device labeled “Coach” from
the device list. Right click on this device name and select “Update Driver.” On the next
screen you will have the option to search automatically for drivers or select the
location on your computer. With the driver CD in your CD drive, select the option to
manually locate the drivers and browse for the correct folder for your operating system
on the driver CD.

to the USB port of PC, the device will enter PC CAM mode by default.)

able to detect if your vehicle is in motion and will begin recoding.
If the G-Sensor function is activated, your camera detect collisions. Should this occur, a
"lock" icon will display on the screen. The “lock” icon indicates that the camera has

You may choose to add the Blue Tiger® GPS module to your camera in order to be able
to track and synchronize your location with your videos while using the Black Box™.
Please note that the GPS module is not included with your Black Box™ but may be
purchased from your retailer or from Blue Tiger® directly.
The GPS module is connected via the attached cable into the corresponding port in the
side of the Black Box™ (please see diagram). An icon in the bottom left corner of the
LCD screen will change from gray to green letting you know that the GPS module is
attached and working. While recording, the GPS module will write your location data
to the camera memory as the video is recorded. You will need the software included
with the GPS module in order to see the location data.

HD 1080P Output
This product includes HD full digital video and voice transfer interface, which can
transfer video and audio signal for DVB-T, DVD players, PC, TV, integrated amplifiers,
digital sound and HDTV.
Important Notes:
1) Please plug in the SD card before recording and do not unplug the SD card when
recording or during playback as doing so may damage the camera or memory card.
2) The Black Box™ is designed for cyclical recording, meaning that once the memory
card is full, it will begin to overwrite the existing data on the card. This way, the most
Blue Tiger USA |
recent data is stored and you do not need to add additional memory once the capacity
is reached. You may set the video record time to 2 minutes, 5 minutes, or 10 minutes
of recording before the camera begins recording a new clip.
3) When not plugged into a power source and the battery gets low, the battery icon
will turn red and begin flashing on the screen. After 20 seconds, this camera will
automatically save the current file and shut down.
4) If you need reset your Black Box™, press and hold the RESET button for 3 seconds
then release. The reset button is located above the USB port on the camera and can be
accessed with a pin.
5) RED “F” On Screen- If a red letter “F” appears on your screen, your camera is
indicating that your memory card is full. This should only happen if your G-Sensor has
locked too many files for the camera to continue recording. In this case, it will be
necessary to delete the files by using a computer. This will free up space on your
memory card and allow you to continue recording. Please note, you cannot delete
locked files from the camera. These files must be deleted by using a computer.
