playback menu in Video Playback Mode.
EMERGENCY RECORDING
An Emergency Recording is triggered when the Emergency Record Button at the top of the unit
is pressed or when the G-Sensor registers an impact. Emergency Recordings create locked files
that are not overwritten by Continuous Loop Recording. In order to ensure that important
footage isn’t lost surrounding an incident, adjacent video clips are locked if the incident
happens within 30 seconds of the beginning or end of a clip.
CHARGING THE DEVICE
You can charge the device with the included car charger or with a micro USB cable.

12 | P a g e
VIDEO SETTINGS
Video Resolution:
This setting allows you to set one of three available video recording resolutions:
Higher resolutions will give you a sharper image, but take up more memory on the card.
The available resolutions are:
1080P Full HD
1920x1080 30 Frames per Second
720P HD 60fps
1280x720 60 Frames per Second
720P HD 30fps
1280x720 30 Frames per Second
CDR895D Only – For the CDR895D, Video Resolution is broken down into Cam1 Resolution and
Cam2 Resolution. Note that 720P 30fps is the only resolution option for Cam2
Loop clip time:
This setting allows you to control the duration of each individual movie clip on the device.
Movie clips can be set to durations of 3 minutes, 5 minutes, or 10 minutes or Action Cam Mode.
In general, 3 minute clips are preferred because the file size is much more manageable when
transferring to a computer for editing.
Action Cam Mode
 Loop recording is disabled.
 G-sensor is disabled.
In this mode the dash cam will record one long video until you either manually stop recording
or the SD card gets filled up. It will not overwrite any files. If you fill up the card with an action
cam file, there will not be any space to save loop recordings and so the dash cam will not be
able to save normal loop recordings. In this case you will need to delete the Action Cam file or
format the SD card (which wipes everything off the card).
G-Sensor:
The Drive HD Dash Cam includes a built in G-Sensor which allows the device to determine when
the car has been in a collision. If it detects a collision, it automatically locks the recording being
made at the time of the accident. You can use this setting to set the sensitivity of the G-Sensor
from 1-3 or turn it off. Level 1 is the easiest to activate the G-sensor and the G-Sensor may lock
files due to smaller bumps like potholes and the SD card may fill up with protected files. Level 3
is the hardest to activate the G-sensor.
13 | P a g e
Parking Mode:
Parking Mode uses the Motion Sensor and G-Sensor to optimize recording functionality while
your vehicle is parked. The idea is that when you are parked, the dash cam will be “sleeping”
but it will monitor the video image for motion and it will also monitor the G-sensor. If it detects
motion or if it detects an impact then the unit will wake up and start recording.
There are 2 time settings for Parking Mode: 5 minutes and 10 minutes. This is the timeout for
going into Parking Mode. If no motion is detected for the chosen timeout, then the display will
turn off and the recording will stop (it is now sleeping). If motion is detected or if the G-sensor
is triggered then the unit will wake up and start recording. It will continue recording until the
timeout again triggers Parking Mode.
NOTES:



Parking Mode only works properly if the dash cam is powered. Either the accessory
socket must be alive with the ignition off, or the dash cam must be hardwired to a
constant power source (use optional hardwire cord CA-MicroUSB-001).
If you are driving on a lonely stretch of highway where the scenery is not changing much
then it might trigger Parking Mode and the unit will unexpectedly go to sleep.
If you park where there is lots of activity which keeps triggering the motion sensor, then
the unit might never time out and enter Parking Mode.
Cobra Watermark, Date/Time Stamp, & Time Stamp Format:
These menu options change the watermark & time stamp that will appear on the saved video
files. Photo files do not contain a watermark.
Flip Cam2 (CDR895D only)
Depending on how you mount Cam2 the video may be upside down. Select Flip Cam2 to flip
the video vertically so that it appears correctly on the screen and in recorded files.
Mirror Cam2 (CDR895D only)
Selecting Mirror Cam2 flips the video horizontally so that left is right and right is left. This is
important for when Cam2 is mounted facing backwards. Mirrored video appears correctly on
the dash cam screen because it mimics what you see in the rear view mirror. Unselecting
Mirror Cam2 will look incorrect on the dash cam screen, but appears correct to your brain when
viewing recordings on a computer or TV. Note that Mirror Cam2 is selected as ON by default.
14 | P a g e
Lane Departure (CDR895D only)
The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) provides audible and visual warnings as you
approach a lane boundary. It will indicate whether you are departing the lane to the left or to
the right. Note that this feature relies solely on analyzing video of the road ahead and,
therefore, works best on clearly marked roads with good visibility. This feature is for
information purposes only. See the Trademark Acknowledgement, Warnings, and Regulatory
Information section below for the full legal disclaimer for using this feature.
Collision Warning (CDR895D only)
The Frontal Collision Warning System (FCWS) provides audible and visual warnings if you are
quickly approaching an obstacle in the road ahead. This feature can only be enabled when a
compatible external GPS is connected because it will only alert if you are driving more than
35MPH. Note that this feature relies solely on analyzing video of the road ahead and,
therefore, works best with good visibility. This feature is for information purposes only. See
the Trademark Acknowledgement, Warnings, and Regulatory Information section below for the
full legal disclaimer for using this feature. The part number for the external GPS Mount is
CA-Mount-002 and it can be purchased at www.cobra.com.

Format SD Card:
Allows you to format the inserted SD Card. NOTE: This action will permanently delete all data
on the card.

GPS OPERATION
GPS functionality embeds GPS, Speed, Heading, and G-Sensor information into video footage
recorded on the dash cam. GPS data can be received either through the iRadar App (for
Bluetooth enabled models) or a GPS Mount (CA-Mount-002).
All models covered in this manual are compatible
with the GPS Mount, but the CDR875G is the only
one that comes standard with GPS.
Operation is simple. Plug the 3.5mm plug from
the GPS mount into the Accessory Port on the left
side of the unit. A gray GPS icon will appear
indicating that GPS is plugged in. The icon will
turn white when GPS lock has been achieved,
indicating that information is now being stored in
recorded videos.
In addition to embedding information into videos, connecting to GPS or the iRadar App
automatically updates the unit’s clock so that time stamps are always accurate.
See Download Drive HD Player below for instructions on how to view embedded GPS
information.
