    Parking Mode - Only Sensor Activated - Not Continuous?

    Just got my U1000 installed today. I have no issues getting parking mode to work, however ... The cameras appears to just keep recording with nothing passing by. Does the U1000 stock have the ability to only record via sensor activation whilst in parking mode? I am worried the the U1000 is...

    New U1000 owner, couple questions

    Hi guys, I just bought a U1000, which is a major upgrade for me from my old Mobius action cam as a dash cam. I'm pretty excited, I hope I made the right decision. I was on the fence about a DR900-S, a A129 pro, and the U1000. In the end the U1000 got the nod. I have a couple questions for...

    Cam focused on Parking Mode - what sensor and what model for vertical mount ?

    Hi everyone - I am looking for one or several cameras to watch my car when it is parked. I have had some dashcams mounted to the front screen, but most of them have limited viewing angle. I recently ordered a VIOFO 4k 129 pro (for Video quality reasons) but the viewing angle is only 130 deg now...

    Mini 0906 - parking mode "detection" is too sensitive

    Hi All, I use the mode "motion detection", but detection is really high sensitive. The recording starts every three minutes, the recording starts even if a leaf falls from the tree. Timelapse and other modes are not suitable for me. Is it possible to adjust sensitivity anyhow? If no...can you...

    Wi-Fi Frequency, 2.4GHz or 5GHz?

    What do these figures mean and how does it affect the battery on parking mode? The user manual does not clarify its figures

    No WiFi in parking mode

    To get live view from anywhere in the world, you will need to have the dashcam hard or obd wired and connected via a in-car mobile hotspot. If you have the U1000 model with the radar module active and on energy saving mode, then the remote cloud viewing (whilst parked), wouldn't work. This is...

    How does A129 Pro notify you of any impact?

    I see that Thinkware U1000 and Blackvue DR-900S-2CH say out loud the number of impacts you hand when you turn on the car. How does A129 Pro do that?

    Parking Mode Testing

    How come there are little to no videos or info online about dash cam parking mode ? I just want to SEE an actual example of someone activating and using parking mode instead of just them talking about how it works. Please SHOW examples/videos of this. I want to get a dash cam, but lack of...

    Parking mode feature request - scheduling

    Not sure if this is the right place for a request, but I've seen that VIOFO people are reading the threads. It would be useful for my usage scenario if it would be possible to enable parking mode on a scheduled basis to avoid having to go through the menus to turn it on or off every time...

    Using OBD cable. Parking mode and “stop start” causes powers down.

    I had my DR900S-2CH installed with the OBD Power Pro cable recently by Halfords. It was only going into parking mode for a minute or so before shutting down. I realise I’d probably need some battery accessory for extended parking recording but that didn’t seem right. I then remembered there was...

    Solar panels to help prevent 12v car battery drain in parking mode

    I currently have a small solar panel which I think is 1.5w and does very little. My car can sometimes be left for over a week without being used. My car is supplied as new with a 063 battery, and as the battery tray is big enough I have fitted a 096 battery instead for extra capacity. I use an...
