Viofo A119v3
I purchased a Viofo A119v3 (firmware v2.3) recently as well as the Viofo 3-wire hardwire kit, which I wired to my fuse box (red constant wire to my dome light fuse and yellow ACC wire to my radio fuse), and I notice that whenever I turn the car off, it does indeed go to parking mode after some minutes (seems a long time as I thought it was supposed to go to parking mode after a few seconds), but for some reason , it remains in parking mode and does not switch to normal recording when the car is turned back on, which is an issue for me. Anyone else experienced this and if so how did you solve it?
Thanks

Must be an incompatible power source.

It needs to be a 'permanent live' and an 'ignition pos 2' I would double check.

If fuses do check out, try a firmware reflash for the unit. We've seen some very select few Viofos behave like this (remains stuck in parking mode) due to a software issue.
