I have connected M300 camera to the 2A USB mobile charger and it works.
Hardwire kit, on the other hand, doesn't work. I have connected it to the 7Ah 12V battery, but camera doesn't detect it. When I connect hardwire cable to the camera and try to enable parking surveillance, 70mai app shows message that cabel is not connected.
I have connected hardwire cable to my phone and even phone doesn't detect any power. I beleive that my hardwire kit is broken.
Amicus, have you checked that you have connected the cables to the correct fuses? I use this type of ...
Hi. I have connected it directly to the 7Ah 12V battery (from UPS). If I short circuit ACC and VCC+ and connect it to the battery + it should work, but I don't get any power. The same thing is when I disconnect VCC+.
Did anyone noticed that video download speed sometimes goes up to 3.5MB/s and stays around that speed, but sometimes it jumps between very low (98.7KB/s) and around 1.5MB/s? Today I had to retry downloading the same video 4 times (1 minute long, 120MB video).
Doesn't it get faster when you turn off Bluetooth?
I don't see the reason why would blueetooth have influence on WiFi speed, but I will try video download with bluetooth turned off. While I'm in the car I keep bluetooth on so phone can connect with car's multimedia interface.
Has anyone tried the parking mode? No matter how much I try to move and hit the car, I can't activate it ... I have the high sensitivity mode but it doesn't activate, the cable kit is well installed and I don't know why it does not work ...
I have tried parking mode and it doesn't work for me too. I did following steps: 1. connected hardwire kit 2. enabled parking mode in 70mai app 3. set sensitivity to high 4. turned off car contact (ACC) 5. locked my car 5. waited 1 minute 6. shook my care few times wery hard 7. unlocked my car 8. turned on contach (ACC) 9. conencted to camera WiFi 10. checked recordings
Parking mode section has no recorded videos I have checked Normal section, but there were no video recordings from the time I have shook my car.
So, I conform what Oscar_89 wrote - parking mode doesn't work.

I stand corrected. Parknig mode WORKS, but 5minutes after you turn off ACC power. So, after you turn off and lock you car, you must wait atleast 5 minutes before you shake or hit your car in order to activate parking mode recording. Recorded video goes to the Parking section.
I try it a few hours after lock the car but nothing happens... The parking mode doesn't work and I don't know why... What do you do to start this mode? I am try to move down the front of the car with my hands...
I try it a few hours before lock the car but nothing happens... The parking mode doesn't work and I ...
First, I have wired hardwire kit and turned off and on my car once to test if it hardwire kit works. After that, I have disabled automatic camera shutdown and enabled parking mode. On the end, I drowe my car for 20 minutes (short trip), parked my car and locked it. I have heard voice from the camera mentioning that parking mode will start in 5 minutes. I was away for 40 to 45 minutes. I have shook my car before unlocking it. After starting my car, I have found video in Parking section (70mai app)
I have already update the dashcam too and i haven't got any problem with this (I have a normal installation of the 70Mai hardware kit), Amicus maybe you can measure the power consumption of the camera on standby since I don't think it is much and it is not worth losing the parking function
I have some suggestions regarding WiFi connectivity:
1. It would be very nice to be able to change name of the camera's WiFi.
Reason: I don't want to advertise which camera do I have in my car. Why would I serve additional informations to the potencial hacker if I don't have to?
2. It was essential to be able to connect camera to the car's WiFi.
Reason:My phone is automatically connected to the car's WiFi. So if I want to check camera video, I need to reconnect it to the camera, download video/configure camera, reconnect my phone back to my car's WiFi!
It's so annoying! I don't want to do that all the time.
Camera bug! I have deleted some video recordings (more than 100) from 70mai app. After turning off and on my car I have heard voice from camera telling me that I need to format SDcard! After starting app I get the same message. So I have formated my SD card and lost all my recordings.
I hope it will be fixed because nobody wants dash cam that can't keep recordings.
A new "error", when you download a video from Dashcam and want to play it on the phone, the video and sound are delayed ... Does it happen to more people too? I have tried to download it and send it by whatsapp and the same thing happens ...
I have different problem with video. If I play it on my phone with muted sound, it plays fine. But, when I enable sound, video starts, then stops, starts, stops and so on. Video plays for about 2 seconds then stops, then continues, stops... It's jumping that way until I mute sound.
WiFi in my car is active every time when I turn on ACC, and stays active until I lock my car. My phone connects to the car's WiFi every time I enter the vehicle and if camera can do the same as my phone (connect to the car's WiFi) camera would be accessible to my phone. Only thing is that you must enable camera to work in client mode (not only in access point mode) and accept incoming connections from WiFi network. Basically, DashCam should work as IP camera.
I have tested parking mode sensitivity with new firmware. It seems better but, for me it's still unsensitive. Camera detects when I slam doors but not when I kick tire with my foot or if I bump side of the car with my palm. Camera is mounted on the back doors windshield and doesn't start recording when I open and close them (electric open/close)
Can anyone confirm after how many seconds after event (bumping parked car) camera starts recording in parking mode? I can't see that camera records actual event (car that bumped me), just time AFTER event.
Then, parking mode is useless! I don't want to know what is happening after someone slams into my car. I need evidence who did it. My old dash cam recorded video only when detects movement, but recorded video also contains some time BEFORE movement happened so I can see what actually happened.
That means, when you see that you have parking mode video recorded, you must check time of the recorded video and find time laps video from that time and check some time before. That's lot of searching and browsing thru the video clips.
