A dashcam with parking mode secures the car while parking. In parking mode, the dashcam goes into hibernation so he hardly consumes power and data and only the most important events are being recorded. Dashcams offer manual or automatic parking mode and various ways to record videos. For more information, read our blog article on the use of parking mode.
Most cars do not supply power from the cigarette power supply while parking. Therefore, to use the dashcam in parking mode, a hardwire kit or battery pack is needed to provide power to the dashcam while parking. Hardwire kits and batter packs can be ordered as an accessory to any dashcam or in some cases - if listed - are supplied as standard.
