Hi,

I'm looking for a new dash cam with the following features:
  • Parking mode
  • G-Sensor
  • 1440p resolution @ 30 or 60 fps
  • Adhesive mount
  • Ability to use a hardwiring kit for parking mode and continuous recording; I do not want to plug it into the cig. lighter
  • Very good video quality during the day and night
  • I don't care if there is a screen or not
May I please request recommendations?

Hardwiring is required with many dashcams, but not all. My SGZC12RC is set to function in buffered motion sensing mode when driving & when parked. The use of motion detection while driving is not advisable for most cameras, however, it's entirely reliable with the SGZC12RC.

The camera is plugged into the 12v accessory socket. At the same time it's plugged into my 5v Anker 13000mAH external battery.

With the SGZC12RC, sited next to it's 12v power socket is a Micro USB socket. It's primary purpose is as a factory service port. It's secondary use is as a 5v power input, as documented by @niko in several videos.

While driving, the SGZC12RC is powered by the car's 12v supply. When I park & switch off the engine, I simultaneously press the power switch on the external battery, & the camera seamlessly continues recording.

This setup has worked faultlessly for me since June 2015.
