┗ Press and hold REC button and Voice Recording ( ) button at the same time for 3 seconds to copy incident recording from MicroSD memory card to internal Dual Save memory.

┗ When Dual Save is activated, it will immediately store the previous 4 seconds prior to impact and start recording video for next 2 seconds for total of 6 second video clip.

Operation Status LED

Green light blinking Off

Cautions

Dual Save technology saves duplicate copy of recorded video for secure backup to the internal memory so the internal memory life span may be affected by G-sensor user setting, road conditions, and driving behaviorwhich directly impact frequency of incident recordings.

Driving over sspeed bumps, manholes, or uneven roads at high speeds can also be detected as an impact and may trigger incident recording.

Professional product service is required when replacing the internal memory.
