IROAD X9 App Guide

As dash cams are becoming increasingly popular, manufacturers are foregoing the use of an LCD screen in favor of WiFi capability to allow for a smaller and more discreet camera. This convenient feature allows users to access their recordings without needing to take the SD card out.

The IROAD X9 comes with an excellent WiFi / smartphone app and has done an excellent job in making it easy for the user to connect and manage their X9. The app is available on both Android and iOS devices and the great news is that iPads can also use this app!

First, download the IROAD app from the iOS App store or Google Play store.

Connecting to the IROAD X9 is very simple and only takes a few minutes.

  1. Ensure that mobile data has been switched off on your device and then turn on the X9 and WiFi option on your mobile.
  2. At this point you would press the WiFi registration button on the camera, which is right next to the power button, and the camera will give voice guidance to continue the registration.
  3. Open your phone’s settings, and connect to the WiFi network named IROAD_X9
  4. If steps 1-3 are completed correctly, your phone will be paired to the camera. If successfully paired, the app will say MY DEVICE: IROAD X9 with an image of the camera in the middle. The default password is “qwertyuiop” if prompted.
  5. Once that is done you have successfully paired your camera to your smartphone. Do note that the process on iOS differs slightly from the Android OS in that you may have to enter a password for the camera first before you go into the app itself.

    Do note that only one device can be paired with the IROAD X9 at one time. For example if another user pairs with the X9 the original user is automatically kicked off the pairing and would need to re-pair the camera with your mobile.

Once successfully paired, you will be greeted with five main options when you select the drop-down menu in the corner. The three buttons at the bottom will quickly navigate to the recording list and settings respectively.

These are:

  1. Live View
  2. Recording List
  3. Dash Cam Settings
  4. Firmware Update
  5. Help

Live View

If selecting the Live View option, this is the screen used to populate the camera. You are also able to switch to the front or rear camera by choosing the front/rear camera option in the top right of the display. There is a Guide Line toggle at the bottom right-hand side for correctly aligning the camera with the hood.

Settings

Settings would allow you to fine tune your camera’s configurations such as brightness level, toggle settings, adjust date and time, and ADAS features. Do note that the camera will automatically reboot as you exit the settings menu to apply any changes.

Recording List

The Recording List is where you would be able to view all of your recordings - do note that recording does stop when a phone is connected. From here, you can select whether you would like to access Normal (driving) data or Event (g-force sensor impact) data.

You will be greeted with a list of populated files. From here, you can choose to download footage. Using the download button., you can then choose whether you would like to save file, with a choice between “Photo” or “Video clip”. If selecting the latter, you can choose to include audio.

Please note:

Any of the footage saved via the app to your mobile would be in the JDR format and would not be playable until it has been exported to the phone’s camera roll or IROAD Desktop Viewer.

Overall, we found the IROAD viewer app to be very intuitive and easy to use even during the pairing process for the first time! In this reworked versions, all menus are easily accessible and everything works smoothly. For any of you considering an IROAD camera, these are some of the notable highlights.

BlackboxMyCar Add-A-Fuse Kit

Hi Brian, thanks for leaving a review!
VIOFO A119 12V Auto Hardwire Kit

Quality hardwire kit with reasonable length to the A119 and to the 12V battery source. Voltage reducer is small enough to fit in small spaces with rounded corners for ease of fishing into place. Fuse holder streamlined but difficult to open at first, 2nd time ok.

Hi Chester, thanks for leaving a review! Glad to hear that you were able to figure it out and install your VIOFO. Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!
the ONLY place I can find this replacement part online

Blackboxmycar is the only place I could find that sells the cigarette socket power output cable for the Cellink Neo.
Fast shipping. Item as described.

Hi J. Kim, we're glad to hear you were able to find what you were looking for at our store. Thanks for shopping at BlackboxMyCar!
Great Kit- Everything you need

Hi Jennifer, thanks for leaving a review. We're glad to hear that you have found everything you need in our Essential Installation Kits. Thanks!
Suction Cup add-on

I bought this suction cup mount to move and use quickly my A119 V3 from vehicle to vehicle.
After receiving I must say its smaller and lighter than expected compared to the picture but still functional and we will see how long the suction cup lasts over time.
I also saw a video of using this suction cup to turn the A119 around and take video of driver with commentary about area or something else which I plan to edit into my video at a later time.
So its a nice feature for the video I plan to make while on vacation.
Cool!

Hi John, thanks for your feedback. Let us know if the suction cup mount doesn't work well for you over time and we'll try our best to help. Thanks!
Blackbox My Car is the Best!

Sorry BB team for taking so long before writing a review, but the 2 Viofo a129 duo dashs were xmas gifts and I wanted to wait for your professional installations to be done first.
I have purchased dascams from BB before and have had nothing but a great experience for both service and products.

Both Viofo cams are working great and the installation service was the best. The team was awesome and answered all my questions without hesitation. Your waiting area and amenities are first class. Most car dealerships could learned a thing or 2 from how you operate!

Thank you again!

Hi Ken, appreciate your compliments and thank you for leaving a review! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed our facilities and that the installation and the dash cams worked out for you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out at any time in the future!
Very pleased with the A119V3 and with customer service

After researching a number affordable dash cams I settled on the Viofo A119V3 and Blackboxmycar as the vendor. I chose Blackboxmycar because of its customer service. This is my first Dashcam and I had a number of questions all of which were answered promptly and to my satisfaction by Katrina. Other vendors offered a slightly less expensive final cost but Katrina's service swayed my decision.

As to the camera itself I am very happy. In the last few days I have used it in temperatures of about -28ºC and it has performed flawlessly. The video quality is excellent with the CPL: clear, sharp and with good colours and contrast. Files are around 1.15 GB for 5 mins using 2560x1440 @30 fps H.264 or around 950 MB using H.265. The audio quality is quite acceptable.

Once you get the hang of using the Menu system it is quite easy to choose or change settings.

Also impressed with Viofo in that they seem to have thought of everything. The item included everything I could possibly need to mount and operate the camera even down to string to help remove the mounts in future if necessary.

Presently I am powering the camera via the cigarette lighter but am seriously considering hardwiring or using a portable power bank. I will then try the parking modes.

We have two cars and I had thought of moving the camera from one to the other so I purchased an additional GPS mount, that I have not yet tested. However I am now leaning towards buying 2nd A119V3 to avoid the hassle and to have a permanent neat installation in both cars.

Hi David, thanks for leaving a review! We're glad to hear that Katrina was able to help you out, and that the VIOFO A119 V3 was exactly what you were looking for. If you need anything else, please don't hesitate to let us know!

Best Site for the Best Dashcams Around

My 2nd purchase from Alex and 2nd Blackvue camera purchased. Blackvue is my favourite dashcam because of its sleek and unobtrusive design and extremely high quality recordings. Easy to download recordings with the app now, will continue to recommend Blackvue's to everyone.

As for blackboxmycar.ca, great selection of the best Dashcams out on the market. Extremely informative website with an abundance of information and comparisons to make the right choice. Fast shipping and great customer service, this is the way to go to buy a dashcam over the cheaper but inferior choices on Amazon or anywhere else.

Hi Wesley, thanks for your review. We're glad to hear that you're loving your BlackVue dash cam as much as we do! Hope the DR590W-1CH treats you well :) If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our team.
Power output cable spliced for Thinkware

These cables were well made and of great quality. Shipping was fast and customer support went above and beyond to help me understand how to DIY my first dash cam. Very much value added support!

Hi Jye, thanks for leaving a review! I'm glad that this and our team was able to help you out. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our team in the future.

1st time buyer from BlackBoxMyCar.com

Review Title
I have done a lot of research on finding my second dash cam and decided on a VIOFO A119 V3.
I have seen some video of reviews of the camera and compared to my 1st Dash Cam A119S V2 and figured that VIOFO was a good choice again. I have seen Alex the CEO of BlackBoxMyCar do a review video on the A119 V3 in 2019 and went to his website and decided it was very professionally designed and easy to use. Not only did I buy the camera I found some accessories.
I ordered then noticed they offered first responders and military a discount and sent an email if I could get this discount. Quick email reply from Paul who I sent documentation on proof and he who forwarded my request to get a refund on my purchase. Thank you.
Now I did order my camera knowing it was back ordered as well as this was Christmas and New Years week so I wasn’t expecting to see the camera until Jan 2020.
It did arrive in a box and was properly packed. I had numerous email from FedEx where my package was and when it would arrive and someone must be home to signature for it.
Between the initial purchase and receiving my dash cam BBMC has been above and beyond what I expected and under the leadership of Alex I see why this company is so successful.
Thank you everyone for a great purchase and plan on additional future purchase from me.

Hi John, thank you for the kind words and the detailed review. We're glad to hear that we were able to help you find what you're looking for. We will pass on your compliments to Alex who will absolutely be delighted to read this. Thanks again, and do let us know if you have any questions.
Delivery Needs To Be Improved

I ordered it on Dec 28 with Rocket shipping and it arrived Jan 6 but I had to constantly contact them about the status of the order as it was stuck for many days with no updates. I give this service 1 star. The product itself is excellent, well made (except the App), easy to install, etc which deserves 5 stars. Overall 3 stars.

Hi Bill, thank you for leaving a review. We do want to apologize for that, and thank you for your patience. This holiday season was quite a busy one for our team, and we had some inventory delays with the unexpected surge in demand for our battery packs. We are working on smoothing that out moving forward so that we don't have this happen again. From a communication standpoint, we will absolutely work on fixing that moving forward to make sure our customers are aware of any delays. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for purchasing from BlackboxMyCar, and if you have any questions, Bill, please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team.
Great for extended parking mode!

Before purchased and installed the Cellink Neo I was using my Thinkware Q800Pro hardwired to my car. However, my vehicle stays parked for days on end without me having to drive anywhere. I get about 40 hours with a dual camera setup, and I couldn’t be happier to have an extra piece of mind. The installation was very easy, as I did it myself (hardwired) and mounted it under the driver seat. This would be a worth while purchase.

Hi Brandon, we're glad to hear that your new battery pack worked out for you! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us in the future.

Although my dash cam was on a backorder after Christmas, it delivered right the way I wanted it. I like the dash cam is tiny. The video is very clear.

Hi John, thank you for leaving a review. We had some inventory delays during the holiday season with the unexpected surge in demand for our dash cams, but we're glad that we were able to deliver your dash cam in time. Thank you for purchasing from BlackboxMyCar!
Great product to reduce glare!

Does what it says to reduce windshield glare, it’s easy to install

Hi Brandon, thank you for leaving a review! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us in the future.
Amazing Product - Worth Buying

This product helped hardwiring my dash cam so much easier as there were no wires that needed to be spliced. The trim tool made it convenient to tuck the wires inside the car and only show minimal wires. All in all, this all-in-one kit, made hardwiring my dash cam so much easier.

Hi Sai, thank you for leaving a review and for shopping at BlackboxMyCar. Glad to hear that this worked out for you. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us in the future if you have any more questions.
