Dash Cam Turning Off Because of Overheating? Say No More with this new FineVu Heat Protection Feature
What is FineVu GX1000 Smart Temperature Monitoring?
Summers in the south are extremely hot. If you own a dash cam, you'll want to make sure that your surveillance system can withstand the extreme heat in your car. And if you live in the north, you'll want to make sure that it can also withstand the cold of winter.
Extreme temperatures, particularly heat, can degrade the performance of your dashcam, causing it to turn off and malfunction. If you have an always-on dashcam, you should be aware of how hot the interior of the car can get in order to keep the dashcam from turning off, especially when it is in parking mode.
How do I know if the temperature is affecting my dash cam?
You don't need a thermometer to check the temperature of the dash cam. Your hands can do the job for you. Dashboard cameras are programmed to shut down automatically if they become overheated, as a preventative measure that guards against heat damage.
What can I do to protect my dash cam from high temperature conditions?
Sometimes, all you need to do is move the dash camera out of the sun. Changing the position of the dashcam is another option, to keep it out of warm spots near the windshield.
Increasing airflow in the vehicle either by opening the windows, getting a fan or running the air conditioning unit will help. You can also disable the Wi-Fi when it’s not in use.
Obviously, while these can keep your dash cam from overheating, it also means that you can't get the most out of it because you have to take it down or wait for it to cool - which can be a cause of inconvenience.

In this feature, the impact area during parking is subdivided into eight directions and reported in multiple levels of impact size using machine learning techniques. When you return to your car and turn on the ignition, the GX1000 will notify you of the impact, and the WiFi app will display which area was likely hit as well as a video clip of the incident.
Moreover, the GX1000 also has a Power Saving Mode to ensure that you get the most out of your dash cam. When parked, the GX1000 consumes only 0.06W for two channels with its GPS connection turned off.
