Step 5 - The following changes are recommended for the typical dash camera setup:

    • Under basic settings, set 'Power On Auto-Record' to 'External Only'

    • Under basic settings, set 'Power Off Disconnect' to '10 Secs'

      • Note: If using a supercapacitor, this should instead be set to 'Immediate'

    • Under Mode 1, set 'Rotate Video 180' to 'Yes'

    • Under Mode 1, set 'Loop Recording' to 'On'

    • Optional - Set 'Video Clip Length' to '5 minutes' (recommended for loop recording)

    • Optional - Make the Mode 1 changes in Mode 2 if so desired.
