    Dash cam hardwired

    I’ve hardwired my dash cam but for parking mode to work I need to turn the car off and on twice for parking mode to enter. If I just leave the dash cam with ignition off first time it just stops recording and camera just still got power. Anyone had any issues like this or any suggestions?
