    right ok, I have mine set to motion as well. The original position of the camera was good for hiding it, you could only see the edges of the unit. Since I've moved it further up the screen you can see it but its still not bad to look at and now I can see and access all the buttons without...

    How long does it last with the battery pack? I was considering this. I will see how it goes tonight with it wired straight into the car, I have the device set to turn off after 12 hours or if it reaches 12.0v whichever occurs first.

    Ah thanks for that, I will try that tomorrow. I've managed to get hold of a local installer, so I'm going to take the camera down to theres and see if it works through the lighter adapter.

    I'm having some trouble getting my camera to work, I'm not sure if the unit is faulty or I'm wiring up wrong. I've uploaded images from my manual of the fuse descriptions, what would you recommend for Live (Red ACC wire) and the ignition only power (Yellow Wire), unfortunately I cannot test if...

    Can anyone with this dash cam tell me what minimum voltage value they have set for parking mode, this is the setting where the camera will automatically turn off to stop the battery from draining. thanks
