Is your Dash Cam not going into Parking Mode when you turn off the ignition?
The Dash Cam not entering Parking Mode is caused by either the Dash Cam Settings, or the wiring itself. The main indication that the Dash Cam is in Parking Mode is the verbal message "Parking Recording will now start" after turning off the ignition.
