    Dashcam doesnt save settings only when using hardwire kit.

    I have a ThiEYE Car View 2. Powering it through the cig lighter works fine but now that I have hardwired it it resets itself everytime I turn the car off. (VW Golf Mk3) Removing the Mini-Usb cable while its on also doesnt cause this issue. Thanks Simon

    Hi, I'm hardwiring a Viofo A129 to a Lexus hybrid but the current my voltmeter is showing in the fuse box is 14v opposed to 12v. Will this cause harm to the camera and will the 12.4v that the battery could drain to cause any start up problems with the hybrid engine? Thanks for any help.
