Diagram from Garmin should be pretty clear:I am confused about how to set this cable up..
any videos i find online show only 2 cables from the parking cables. 1 ground and 1 they run through the fuse tap to an hot fuse.
why does the Garmin have 3 cables. Would i run one straight off the battery and then the ACC one through a hot fuse with the fuse tap??
I recently bought the dashcam 55, but I haven't got the parking mode cable yet ( apparently it's rare to find it in Romania ). I can't find any "Parking mode" options in the menu and I was wondering if they'll just appear only when the parking mode cable is installed or it's just my camera that has a problem? Also I was thinking if other cables would work - I was looking at the smart box cable one from Mio. Also does the parking cable have any battery discharge protection?
When camera is in parking (stand by) mode, the LED is blinking. Also when you turn off your engine there is a message that tells you that camera is going into the parking mode.
To set the battery discharge voltage, you will have to open the parking mode accessory module. Look at the pics I posted in another thread.
Can you share the picture of how to set the discharge voltage? I'm having hard time finding the picture you've posted. Garmin customer support was saying there's no way to adjust the voltage, which I doubted.
You don't need a picture, just remove the lid of the small black box on the end of the parking mode power cable and you will clearly see the circuit board with clearly labelled voltages and a pin jumper you simply pull off and slip over the pins with the voltage you decide to select. From memory the default is 11.7v, with the option of 12.0 and 12.3, I changed mine to 12.3v.

set for how long the parking mode is on. The settings are: 2 (default), 4, 6 ,8, 10, 12, 24 hours and "always"
It is in the settings (only when parking mode cable is detected.)Where do you set for how long the parking mode is on. The settings are: 2 (default), 4, 6 ,8, 10, 12, 24 hours and "always"? I tried to do it on my Garmin 55 and don't see any settings for it. Thank you.
