Hi,

Can someone please tell me if the battery indicator on my 312GW will change from showing the charging symbol to the full (three bars) symbol if and when the battery is fully charged?

I am in the process of installing the hardwire kit and while I have power from my 'switched' source when the ignition is turned on, the charging symbol is not showing and the blue light is off. The battery indicator is showing fully charged, hence the reason for asking if the indicator reverts to showing full when fully charged.

Thanks

Hi there,

The battery symbol will still show a charge bolt through this when a power cable is connected, to confirm what level this is at you'll need to remove the power cable from the camera and the battery cells will then display in this box.

This does not revert when fully charged.

Thanks.

Yes, I installed it in another car using the 12v socket and when the power is on the light remains blue. Guess I have an issie with the power supply on my van!!

THanks for your help.
