Setting up the timer:
Navman Smart Box III provides power to your Navman dash cam by connecting with the constant power of the
fuse terminal of your vehicle. It is very useful when you want to record video footage whilst parking. The Smart
Box III can prevent the discharge of the vehicle battery by blocking the electric power automatically as it checks
the voltage and preset timer.
Parts and functions
3 ON / 4 ON
1 Fuse cable
- ACC (red wire)
- B+ (yellow wire)
- GND (black wire)
2 Setting switches
- Switch 1 and 2: Voltage
- Switch 3 and 4: Timer
3 LED indicator
4 Mini-USB connector*
Connects to the dash cam.
* The type of the connector may vary by model.
3 OFF / 4 ON
3 ON / 4 OFF
3 OFF / 4 OFF
If the time passes the preset timer (by checking the time after vehicle ignition is turned off), the power to the
dash cam will be disconnected automatically.
Select either 6 / 12 / 24 hours to enable the uninterrupted power function of the Smart Box III and the
dash cam will be powered even when the vehicle engine stops.
If Power off is selected, the uninterrupted power function of the Smart Box III will be disabled and the
dash cam will be powered only when the vehicle engine is started.
If you adjust any of the voltage/timer switches whilst your vehicle is on, you need to restart the Smart Box
III by turning the vehicle off and back on again for the settings to take effect.
2. Locate and open the fuse box inside of the vehicle.
Please note that the installation illustrations are for your reference only. The placement of the fuse box may
vary depending on the vehicle model. If you encounter any problems during installation, it is recommended
that you contact a skilled installer (e.g. the service personnel of the vehicle or authorised car technician) for
assistance and installation.
Installation and setup
1. Set up the voltage and timer by adjusting the switches.
Setting up the voltage:
1 ON / 2 ON
1 OFF / 2 ON
1 ON / 2 OFF
1 OFF / 2 OFF
3. Check and confirm the vehicle's voltage by using the electricity tester as battery voltages varies by vehicle.
You must confirm your vehicle's voltage.
The Smart Box III is designed to power the dash cam by drawing power from the car's battery until it reaches
a specific voltage limit. Once the car's battery falls lower than this level, the Smart Box III will automatically
stop drawing power from the car's battery.
Use the electricity tester to locate the fuse from which the power is supplied even when the vehicle is turned
off, such as the emergency flashing hazard lights, interior and door lights etc. Connect the yellow wire (B+) to
It is recommended to set the Smart Box III to 12.2V (for passenger car and RV) / 24.4V (for truck and bus),
and only change it to the other setting options after checking with your car's manufacturer and/or car’s
battery. Please contact your car's manufacturer and/or car’s battery manufacturer for more information
relating to the minimum battery voltage required for your vehicle.
Use the electricity tester to locate the fuse from which the power is not supplied when the vehicle is turned
off, such as the indicator lights. Connect the red wire (ACC) to the fuse.
The black wire (GND) must be connected to the metal part of the vehicle for grounding. If not grounded, this
product may not work properly. You can use a screw to attach the black wire to the vehicle (try to find a screw
hole on any metal part).
