Okay i have driven some days with the bitrate lowered to high, and that seem the same, so still at times the camera stop recording ( no beeping ) with 2 channels saved 1 second from the Front and Internal cameras, the rear camera do not get saved when the camera stop like that.
I have not been able to find any example of the camera starting to record on its own later on, the cases i have now the camera stop mid drive, and then 20 min or so later i set off from some place where i have been stopped.
I am using still default values aside for +2 for time zone - extreme and for this session high bitrate, and H.265 encode, and of course the Adata A2 memory card.

My 1/2 hour drive on Friday morning, well the drive to the gas station are saved, and about 3 minutes after i set off from there, but the rest of the drive ( 90 % ) are gone, and the next drive is me driving home again Saturday evening around midnight.
Here's a good example. I posted this in the main thread. My camera had "frozen" and dropped the interior camera 7minutes before I entered the car. When I started the car, and camera exited out of parking mode, the interior returned on it's own. From my own testing what I have discovered is that a complete power on / off or a cycle in power can bring the interior camera back to life. It will eventually return (or at least has in some tests) once the unit cools down. I can't say whether this is true on newest firmware. I've pretty much hit the ceiling on what we can do to test the camera.

I could pick up testing parking mode, but based on your guys experience i better save the money on a hard wire kit.
I am sticking to the very basic record while driving functionality, which a dashcam should be able to do at least.

It was only 17 deg C when i set off from home Friday morning, though during the day it did heat up a bit, so i have a partial boiled lobster color now :) and more summer in the cards for the Danes, maybe even heatwave which here have to be more than 3 days in a row with temperatures over 28 Deg C

That ( sandisk endurance ) dont work at all in mine, of course the camera will start ASO with it, but as i recall it was even more erratic when i used it.
Unless it is a size thing, it is just my 128GB card i have tried, i have a 256GB too, these endurance cards are at times damn cheap here in Denmark, so i just had to get one, and one of the WD purple cards too.

I am looking to get my hands on a extreme endurance too, but a load of expensive problems have again fallen upon me, so no financial frivolities this side of X mas it seem.

I am using a 256GB Sandisk High Endurance. Unless you've got a fake / knockoff card, I've never had issue with mine.

I dont think its a knock off, i got it from the largest computer store in Denmark, or should i say Scandinavia, pro shop are pretty big now, i remember when it was 3 guys selling hardware out of a apartment.

It is also "working", but just as bad or maybe a bit worse as any memory card seem to be in my T3

Nothing wrong with T3 plate capture on a good day on Danish highways.
