What are the differences among parking modes, and how are parking motion detection, parking G-sensor, and motion detection working?

There are three modes of parking, and you can only choose one mode at a time,

Auto event detection, Time-lapse, and Low bitrate 

Auto event detection: in this mode, the dashcam will only record when it detects movements around your car. and stops when it does not. while you can adjust its sensitivity by Parking motion detection. we suggest you choose low sensitivity, so minor motion caused by wind or rain doesn't trigger a recording.

Time-lapse parking mode: in this mode, the dashcam will record fewer frames (images) and the videos will be fast when you playback them, like watching how a plant grow at a fast speed, The cam can record many more hours in this mode, but no sound will be recorded.

③Low bitrate parking mode: in this mode,  the dashcam can record constantly but at a lower bitrate, so the image quality may be a little affected, while it can save some space, so more videos can be saved. 

Parking G-sensor:

It is used to adjust the sensitivity of the G-sensor in all three parking modes, it detects significant or sudden movement (such as an impact or collision), once it is triggered, the emergency video will be locked, We suggest setting it to High sensitivity in parking mode

Functions during driving:


It is used to adjust the sensitivity of the G-sensor during driving.


②Motion detection 

The default setting is off, if you turn it on, the cam will stop recording after 1 minute when no motion is detected during driving, for example, when you stop the car temporarily for a red light or go to the convenience store, and it will restart when your car is moving again, in case you do not want to miss any videos, you shall turn it off,
