General instructions

1

CAUTION

Thoroughly read and understand the information in this manual before installing or operating the product.

This product should be installed by a qualified professional installer.

Do not shock the product, this may cause malfunctions.

Do not expose the product to high temperatures or humidity.

- It may cause electric shock or malfunctions.

The windscreen and camera lens should be kept clean, if it is dirty the recording image quality could be poor.

GPS

It may take up to 10 minutes after power is connected to get GPS reception. It may take longer to locate your position when the vehicle is moving compared to when the vehicle is stationary.

GPS reception may be reduced:

• If there is metallic tinting on the windscreen.

• If objects are positioned around the GPS antenna.

• If magnetic devices are positioned close to the GPS antenna.

• On heavily overcast or cloudy days.

• In built-up areas.

During changing levels of brightness such as entering/exiting a tunnel the image quality can be poor until the recorder adjusts to the new ambient light level.

WARNING

Always check that data saves on the micro SD card correctly.

Brigade does not take any responsibility for data loss.

Ensure the micro SD Card is fully inserted.

Before ejecting the micro SD Card, please ensure the power is off. If you eject the micro SD Card while powered, it may cause malfunction or data loss.

There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Disassembly may cause permanent damage.

If you find any data loss, please replace the micro SD Card.

Please check the capability of the micro SD Card when you purchase spare micro

SD Cards. The SD card must be a minimum of Class 10.

The built-in battery is to ensure the last recording is saved to the Micro SD card when the power is removed. The main power supply is used for normal recording.

The built-in battery has a limited lifespan, so the recording time may reduce over time. (The life time is different depending on usage conditions).

If you find that the last recording is not saved, the battery may have reached the end of its life.

If it is difficult to position the recorder in the centre of the windscreen, the recorder may be positioned to one side but this will compromise the recorded view. Make a test recording to help optimise the position.

Please ensure all regulations/legislation are adhered to when installing the product.

Preparations for operation

To remove the micro SD Card, first turn off the power and check the Power &

GPS LED is off (no more than 20 sec. required). Then, remove the micro SD

Card. If you remove the micro SD Card with the power on, a warning chime sounds and no recordings will be saved. (It may also cause loss of data and damage to micro SD Card).

1

Inserting the micro SD Card

Open the card slot and insert the micro SD Card.

Push in the micro SD Card fully until it latches in.

2

Removing the micro SD Card

Once the card has been completely inserted, close the slot cover.

Open the slot cover, and gently press the micro SD

Card. Then it will slide out.

Pull out the micro SD Card.

After removing the micro

SD Card, close the slot cover.

Be sure that the micro SD Card inserts into the micro SD Card slot correctly. If not this will cause an error and could damage the micro SD Card or recorder.

Operation - System active

Do not operate whilst driving.

1

Power ON / OFF

To power on, turn the vehicle ignition on with the power cable connected, the

3 LEDs will illuminate. When the recorder has finished starting up, a chime will sound and the Power/GPS LEDs will illuminate red.

2. If the vehicle ignition is turned off, the recorder will remain on for up to 10 seconds in order to save the last recording file and then turn off with a chime sounding.

The product does not power off by itself after the vehicle ignition is switched off when it is connected to permanent power supply. If you want to power off, please disconnect the power cable from product.

• Power ON: RED LED

• Power OFF: LED off

2

Checking GPS

When the recorder is powered up it will start searching for GPS signals When the recorder has located its position the Power & GPS LED will illuminate green and a chime will sound.

The GPS function can be used to estimate the driving route and speed.

• With the GPS reception: Green LED

• Without the GPS reception: Red LED

3

Event recording

It performs recording 10 seconds before and 10 seconds after an event (20 seconds in total).

10 sec. before an event

EVENT

10 sec. after an event

• When the recorder is configured to Infinite and Event mode, any event

(impact) that is detected during normal recording, normal recording will stop and event recording will start. After event recording, normal recording will resume.

Example:

If an event happens 1 minute and 50 seconds after starting recording:

Normal recording

Event recording

1 min.

40 sec. 10 sec.

EVENT

10 sec.

1 min.

1 min.

Save as a normal recording file. (1 min).

The portion up to 10 seconds before the event from 1 minute to 1 minute and 40 seconds will be saved as a file of normal recording (40 seconds).

‘Event’ is when any shock or impact is detected. The higher the sensitivity, the finer the shock or impact will be detected. The lower the sensitivity, the stronger the shock or impact will be detected. It is possible to adjust the sensitivity of the detection in the PC VIEWER MANAGER (refer to page 13).

When the recorder is set to Infinite and Event recording, the micro SD card separates the storage space approximately 60% for Infinite 40% for Event.

When the recording is over the micro SD Card capacity, it overwrites the recordings starting with the oldest one first.
