Can you tell us how one operates the button ?
Exactly similar to button of mini 3, its looks also exactly same, (maybe a bit taller, I guess).

Pairing: in ddpai app, select pairing and then click button 4-5 times in a row, it pairs well.
Using : just press it once and it triggers the camera to save image and video, same video length settings used as in vibration detection.

Let me know if you need any technical info, or need some experiments run. i can help.

Now i got it, after reading the manual for Mini3. This bluetooth device exists only for the video button click and the mini3 button does not work for mini5.
Absolutely crazy marketing brainwash.

Btw it's possible to trigger video/photo capture event by voice. Simply use the Chinese ddpai app and enable voice control, (it's in Chinese, immediately after switching tone).

After this, simply say this Chinese phrase "我要拍照". I copied this to google translate and pressed the speak button.

It worked on my mini cam every time but not on mini 5. Haven't been able to trigger it with my voice also yet, but I think should be possible.

They have updated their website now. goto https://www.ddpai.com/. If you choose English language, it will show overseas devices and details. If you choose Chinese language(use google translate), it will show all ddpai products and Chinese details.

here is details all details about mini5 Chinese versions, it talks about all features including sim dock, Bluetooth, cloud, etc. https://www.ddpai.com/service/product-support/dash-cam/135.html

This is Bluetooth button B1: https://www.ddpai.com/products/89.html

This device also has the capability to stream directly into the car dashboard, if it uses Huawei Hicar (Huawei's parallel to android auto)

Here are all upcoming cloud websites: https://cloud.ddpai.com/ I think there is something for overseas also.

"wo yao pai zhao" ?
These phrases are hardcoded (as ascii text) into the main_app binary, so you can replace them (btw, what do they mean and what is "banma" ?):
Code:
zhua pai zhao pian
wo yao pai zhao
wo yao lu xiang
da kai ping mu
guan bi ping mu
da kai lu yin
guan bi lu yin
da kai re dian
guan bi re dian
da kai wai fa
guan bi wai fa
da kai qian lu
da kai hou lu

I tried talking to the camera in mandarin. Doesn't seem to register what I say. I've had enough of this voice recognition rubbish with 70Mai, so I couldn't be bothered to keep trying and trying. It's either it gets it on first go, or I disable it.

This is crazy.
Can you create an empty file named 'DDPaiDebugOld' on the exported USB disk (at the same top directory level as DCIM), reboot the dashcam and track the bluetooth pairing and click events ?
The 'main_app' program will create a 'log' directory with the timestamped kernel (like '20210419234902.klog') and user '20210419234902.log' logs.
Just look at the user log entries after pairing and clicking the BT button.
The 'video snap' event number is known, we only need to find out the details on original BT interface.
Code:
WEBSendAppSnap[1877]: in...
[VOICE_PlaySingleAud][483]: push enVoiceId=3, ret=0
HI_PDT_STATEMNG_SendMessage[689]:StateMng module InProgress:1 , pstMsg:11b00003 
PDT_STATEMNG_RecStatesMsgProc[1690]:current state(Rec_Normal), bRunning(1)
PDT_STATEMNG_RecStatesMsgProc[1696]: will process message what(11b00003)

Ok I tried a couple of seller and they come back with "this camera has no 4G LTE bracket and no Bluetooth button". Hate to ask. Can you give the name? I want to purchase the One with 4G to try the sim cards I have and of course get the Bluetooth button. I don't know if they will sell the whole kit but I'm definitely willing to invest into it as a one time purchase and just get everything in one purchase.

i got it from this seller on alibaba. Since aliexpress is banned in India since last year, i have been using alibaba. i would suggest you to provide them exact link of the item from ddpai. com. tell them you are willing to pay premium for shipping and procuring. better if you get anyone in aliexpress do it or try shopnship services, there are plenty.
