    Power Magic Pro turns OFF, mystery?

    AS has been said before Check your battery as it can be resting at just under 12v if its getting on a bit in age. To reiterate, I was fitting a PMP to my car which only gets used occasionally and it wouldnt work in parking mode when turned on, in fact wouldnt turn on at all. Took it back...

    Review: NanoCam+ NCP-MIRDVRHD2 rear view mirror dash cam

    If OP read the ad on Supercheap it says this so is wasting his time trying to get it to stay on without power *Dash cam requires a constant power supply; battery is only designed for emergency power Op says he is new to dashcams which is a bit obvious as plenty of good cameras with HD...

    Considering Blacksys CH200- Why did you choose this camera?

    This report is wrong as I am running 256gb cards in my BV 750 and DR450 without problems

    Power Magic Pro does not turn on? [Pictures included]

    Read the replies The usual reasons are in there Just because the screw for the earth MIGHT be into metal that metal migh only be connected to plastic. Best way to check earths is to meter ti out to a body part like a hinge or somewhere really solid.

    "Please check the SD card" audible warning often

    Rubbish I use Sandisk 200GB cards in 3 cameras and hardly ever look at them and certainly dont format them for months at a time. My two old cards , a Samsung Evo nad a Sandisk Ultra are coming up to 4 years old and still work perfectly

    Few questions about the 900s - desperate and gonna lose my job

    The only think flawed is your brain for not knowing how dashcams work and firing ahead with out doing your research. They WILL play continuously if you use the Blackvue viewer. Another alternative is to put all the video files into something like Wondershare Video converter and join them all...

    SD card Issues when removed from DR900S

    So you put it in your PC and formatted it as Fat32 I presume. IF so it will only show 32Gb because thats all a windows format can show You either need to format it in the camera or use an utility like gui format x64 or similar

    Stealth & Plain Black Front Dash Cam

    Just so you know the word Blackvue on the camera end is not just advertising It is used as an indicator of the angle of the lens Usually two clicks down at the front is the right orientation to get 1/3 sky 2/3 of what you really want. How many knew that.

    Which side of a fuse is Hot vs Cold?

    This explains it perfectly if you put it in reversed and it blows it will also cut out the other things downstream. I have used them in extra slots in my VW that only have clips on the battery (HOT) side and so dont even need a fuse in the bottom slot. Just meter it out to see which side has...

    If however you have connected the ignition switched power to an ACC circuit that has a delayed shutdown it may stay on for 5 mins or more depending on which circuit and how long its delay is. In VW's there are several things that stay live for quite a few minutes. It does pay to meter out the...
