There is no switch or button to turn on/off parking mode at present.
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 there is 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 parking your car or choose "off" for parking mode as below, so the camera turns off when your car engine is switched off.
Another solution is to combine the yellow ACC and red BAT cables to an live port in the fuse box.
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, and 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 also set a timer for parking, there are several options.
If you choose "off", the camera shall continue recording until it reaches the protection cut-off voltage you set.
