10. Turn on the engine. The BlackVue dashcam will power up and start recording. Video files are stored on the microSD card. When the microSD card fills up, the newest video files will start to replace the oldest video files (called loop recording) – so you will always have the most recent video files.
11. Turn off the engine. The dashcam will automatically stop recording and power down. To record in parking mode while the engine is off please connect the Hrdwiring Power Cable (included in the box) or install a Power Magic Battery Pack (sold separately). A Hardwiring Power Cable uses the automotive battery to power your dashcam when the engine is off. A low voltage power cut-off function and a parking mode timer to protect the automotive battery from discharge is installed in the device. Setting can be changed in the BlackVue App or Viewer.
• Location of the fuse box differ by manufacturer or model. For details, refer to the vehicle owner’s manual.
• Up to 50 event recordings (impact, manual) can be locked from being overwritten. By default, this feature is enabled. In the firmware settings, you can choose to either overwrite them with new event files when the event file storage is full or lock the 50 event files and save the new event files in loop recording storage. Please note that formatting the microSD card deletes all the recordings including the locked event files.
• The recording LED is on while recording (default setting) and the GPS LED is on when a GPS signal is received. There are 4 recording modes: Normal, Event, Parking and Manual. The dashcam starts recording in normal mode, switches to event mode when an impact is detected, and switches to parking mode when the vehicle is turned off (Hardwiring power cable, ACC+) or stationary for 5 minutes (Cigarette lighter power cable, G-sensor). Touching the proximity sensor turns on/off audio recording or triggers manual recording depending on the firmware settings.
• When you run the dashcam for the first time the firmware is automatically loaded onto the microSD card. After the firmware has been loaded onto the microSD card you can customize settings using BlackVue Viewer on a computer.
