just a simple circuit to allow failsafe dashcam use with ignition and failsafe use as a parking cam with the option to turn parking cam off...

I m using it and it might suit someone else.

(in other words when you switch off the engine and park, it will contine to record whilst parked up. The switch is there to stop the recording only while parked up if you dont want to use that facility and will still autostart when starting the engine )

I took the liberty of measuring the curent drawn by two g1wh cameras which when charged take 0.46 amps or 0.23 for one camera.

This equates to using 5.5 AH out of the car battery over a twelve hour period which is less than 10% and will leave the car well able to start should it be left on overnight.

(not sure why anyone bothers to fit a suplimentary battery supply )

could you please give some more information about this, what does it do exactly and how to make that?
it records all the time, unless you press the switch that will stop recording, and recording starts again automatically with ignition and does not stop until switch is pressed?

how to avoid accesory power cutoff when starting engine ?
