G. Configuration
With your SD card inserted, select the Configuration icon. (#7) The configuration
window will appear and below will describe configuration settings:
First you will want to select the drive that your Micro SD card is in at the top left
of the window. This will unlock the fields to configure the Micro SD Card.
1- Video Quality: Adjust the video quality to High, Normal or Low. High is of
course recommended for the best video quality. You can adjust to Normal or low
to have more space on your Micro SD Card. The Higher the quality of video the
more storage space it uses.
2- Video Frame Rate: This gives you a drop down menu to adjust the frame rate.
It is set to highest as a standard at 30 NTSC FPS so that the video is smooth.
Again, this can be adjusted to get the most storage out of your Micro SD card and
sacrifice some frames.
3- Car Information: Easily identify vehicle information. Vehicle license plate
number, model, VIN etc can be input here to identify this information quickly.
4- Password: This is a feature of the Micro SD card encryption, to prevent others
from accessing any data. Set a password, then that password is required to access
the playback files, settings or to format the Micro SD card.
5- Time Zone: Set time zone here. GPS has an auto time correction.
6- Copy Me To SD Card: It saves configuration settings to be used at a later time.
7- Unit of Speed: Adjust the unit of speed to your preference. Mile per hour,
Kilometer per hour, Knot per hour.
8- Playback Password: This is an on screen playback password. When enabled
you need to enter password first before entering playback mode. Change settings
first then set the password. Set password from 0-9.
9- G-Sensor Sensitivity: Here you set the sensitivity for the G-Sensor. OFF, Light,
Low, Normal, High, Heavy. (light meaning less sensitive and heavy being more
sensitive.) Example: Set to light if you live in a place like Michigan, otherwise
you will have repeated emergency recording that won’t be overwritten. This is
because of the potholes and uneven roads.
10- Sensor Sensitivity: This has to do with the IR’s (camera lights) and the
sensitivity of them to come on at night.
Very low, low, normal, high, very high. Set the settings according to the night
conditions. Example: Set to very high if you want the IR’s to provide light to
the lens at the slightest sign of darkness.
11- Audio Recording: Choose On or Off to enable or disable audio recording.
12- Daylight Savings Time: Choose On or Off to enable or disable daylight
savings time.
H. Format
When you receive your camera system it will be formatted to the default settings.
If you want to clear/format the sd card from all video data be sure to select the
correct drive under “removable storage” then click Format.
If you want to clear the formatting and Restore to full disk space (just like you
purchased it new from the store) choose Restore.
I. Calendar and Snapshot
Calendar: Choosing the calendar icon (#4) allows you to view a calendar and
See how far back the video recording goes back. These days and times
will be highlighted once you have started to playback video. This also
makes it more convenient in finding a video from a particular day at
a particular time.
Snapshot: While playing the recorded file, you can use this function (icon #6)
to take a snapshot/picture and save it into your PC. The default saving
path for snapshot picture will be in /Snapshot folder.
