Now all need to use hardwire kit to use parking mode. New firmware already changes it from the previous no need hardwire kit to use the parking mode to now need to use hardwire kit.

Yea, just received the dashcam and tried it out.. need to have hardwire kit for sure.

Korean dashcams are on the premium side.

The F200 Pro less than rm1.4k as it is entry level. Those above rm2k+ are the higher range.

yea, that is what I gathered also from my research.. record 2 mins i think.. btw.. do you really need the hardwire kit to go into parking mode? or no need?

I have the hardwire kit installed for the dashcam pro plus+ (front & rear camera).

Dashcam lite (only front camera) i don't have the hardwire kit.

I don't remember seeing motion detection settings in the A500S before also sweat.gif sweat.gif sweat.gif

Maybe can test a few times and see whether it is really motion detection or something else happened.

All the new models starting from A800 to today... All need to hardwire kit to work the parking mode as the firmware that started this was with the A800.

Yeah. In the settings there is only parking surveillance mode on or off.

I agree. Will test it out & update.

Usually the front cam more important than the rear cam I guess.

You can get those clear roadtax sticker and use for the rear.

Tested the parking surveillance mode on my car with 70mai dashcam lite without hardwire kit.

Few things. First is the settings, on default the parking surveillance sensitivity is set at high. When I tried to change it to low or off, I got a notification telling me "parking surveillance cable not detected", & revert to default settings.

Second, I tried doing moving motions in front of my car on hope of triggering the parking surveillance mode.

When I've logged into the 70mai app to access the parking videos, I couldn't find the videos of me doing the motions. So it means what I did earlier did not trigger.

This is where it gets confusing, when I check back all the parking recordings, the trigger recordings are so random & not consistent. Some was about people jogging passing by the car, some was due to passing vehicle from far away. The triggering is not consistent, coz my car is parked in a small lane overlooking the main road, where vehicles always pass by. It did not trigger most of the time.

So as a conclusion, it is safe to say that the parking surveillance mode without hardwire kit is just not reliable.

I still couldn't figure it out what makes it tick.

I recently bought a viofo A129 duo, and it came with 1 plastic sticker only

i highly recommend get an additional for the rear camera

after sticking the rear camera directly on the rear window, i realises that the included wire head is too stiff and unable to bend
i tried to pry away the camera to reposition and it ripped off a part of my tint sweat.gif

The firmware on the 70mai A500S has been recently updated.

Ever since then ADAS has failed to calibrate each time. Anybody facing the same issue?

Any workaround?

hi sir, what is the recommended brand for front and rear dash cam? i just want to use for recording during driving at daytime and nighttime.. no need other fancy / special feature..

Most important the product can last long, without giving problem like screen burnout/ battery prob / chipset overheat, the dashcam automatic on during start engine and close after off engine..

is this model good?

70mai A400 Car Recorder Dash Cam QHD 1440P Rear Cam Night Vision 145 FOV WDR App Control Smart

or there are other better/reliable model?

Can the dashcam 70mai Lite pair with the rear RC09 camera? i mean connected and record together
