How is parking mode activated when using hardwire kit?
It is the yellow ACC cable in hardwire kit that detects voltage changes and sends a signal to the camera, so the camera switches between driving mode and parking mode automatically, so no way to control it manually now.
Do not need parking mode?
First, if you have installed the hardwire kit but do not need parking mode, you can unplug the power cable directly when you pull over or choose "off" for parking mode as below.
When will the camera stop recording in parking mode?
If you turn on the parking mode, the camera stops recording in this mode in two ways normally, either it reaches the chosen protection cut-off voltage or it reaches the parking timer you set, the two functions do not contradict each other, the camera stops when either condition is met.
- When you choose the lower level such as 11.8V/23.6V, you could get more parking videos, as the camera record longer.
While 12.4V/24.8V is a much more conservative choice.
- You can have a specific length of parking videos if you choose the timer, If you choose "off", the camera shall continue recording until it reaches the protection cut-off voltage you set.
