Selecting the Battery Protection Value


Selecting the Battery Protection Value

Each vehicle and battery are different. The Battery Protection Setting must be configured based on your vehicle's specific battery level. 

Follow the steps below to determine the best Battery Protection (Voltage Cut Off) value for your setup.

Check the Vehicles Battery Level in Parking Mode

1. Turn off the vehicle's ignition.

2. Ensure the Dash Cam enters parking mode by listening for "Parking recording will now start".

3. Physically shake the Dash Cam while mounted to record an impact clip.

*You will hear a double beep noise, and the REC Led will begin to flash.

4. Wait for 1-2 minutes for the video file to save properly, then restart the vehicle.

5. Connect to the Dash Cam and watch the Parking Impact file we just initiated. 

6. In the bottom-left you note the Voltage Level of your vehicle's battery.

*Typically when the ignition is turned off this will be between 13.0V -14V. If this is at 12.0V or lower when turning off the ignition, it may be time to replace your vehicle's battery.


Selecting the Battery Protection Value

1. Set the Battery Protection Setting to 12.3V upon installation.

*Ensure the Vehicle's Battery Voltage is above 12.3V when the ignition is off, otherwise this will drain the battery completely since it cannot recognize the threshold.

2. Allow the Dash Cam to operate overnight in Parking Mode.

3. Return to the vehicle the next day and lightly shake the Dash Cam.

Use the table below to determine if the Dash Cam is On or Off.

ON Double-Beep Blinking Red


If the Dash Cam is still powered on the 12.3V cut-off selection is good for your vehicle.

If the Dash Cam has powered off completely, we need to lower the Voltage Cut Off so the Dash Cam powers down later.
