AGM is more durable, and it also charges a lot faster, which is why it is used for Stop-Start. Very difficult to predict how many minutes, it depends on the car, driver, number of daily driving minutes, temperature, etc. With an AGM battery there is no need to user the highest setting.OK, I've got a Start/Stop system, so it's possible, that I also have AGM type battery (but I have to check to be sure) - are they more durable than "regular" ones?
Also, may I ask, how many hours (minutes) would Viofo record in parking mode, when cutoff is set to highest level - I don't recall correctly right now, sth. ~12,4V?
Is it like 2 hours? 3? 6..?
Yeah, I'm very well aware of that. Condition and voltage of car battery is the key.Very difficult to predict how many minutes, it depends on the car, driver, number of daily driving minutes, temperature, etc.
You can get 24 hours recording. As a rough guide for a newish standard battery in reasonable temperatures, an hour of driving per day will keep it going 24 hours, with an AGM battery maybe half an hour will keep it going. There will be a lot of variation though, some cars have a bigger alternator than others, if it can generate twice the electricity then...Yeah, I'm very well aware of that.

But I'm asking about your (or every other member, which uses HK3) personal experience.
It would help me grab onto something...
same here, have left my car parked for a few days with the hardwired A129 running in parking mode. started no problems.Well if you have the A129, it will show a vehicle icon when in regular/driving mode (ignition on) and a picture of a person when in auto motion detection mode (ignition off). There is a delay of about 4-10 seconds between modes, and the unit chirps a couple times when toggling between the modes (when you turn ignition power on or off)
Note: It also has to be programmed to operate like this, in the options menu.
I left one of my vehicles in parking mode with A129 DUO from Friday night until Monday morning, and again from Monday night until this morning(Wed), and she started right up both times. (and that is with a a battery from 2015, which should be near the end of its life) The vehicle had only 40 minutes of use on Monday, to charge the battery. The drain isn't all that big, IMO, or I would have had to jump start the vehicle.
When turning off the ignition the screen should come on, and the camera beep for the short time it stops recording. Red led will show on camera and be lit on the main unit of the hard wire kit. Pressing the button on the left will bring the screen on, and the icon top left will indicate the mode the camera is in. This icon can be difficult to see if the background is White. In event detection parking mode the red led on the left will flash, or be solid while recording if motion is detected.Does anyone know how I can tell if it's in parking mode?. My battery was dead after a couple of days of installing the 3 hardwire. Its either my battery was already done for, or I had the acc and batt wire swap.
I wonder if there's an easy way to determine which mount you have, other than the obvious of plugging the connector into the mount and turning the ignition on and off.Edit: found a post on Viofo forum that mentions newer A129 now works with GPS mount for parking mode, so that explains what i'm seeing.
