FAQ

What is Parking Mode?

Parking mode is offered on most of the dash cams available at BlackboxMyCar. While it is important to protect your vehicle while driving, it is just as important to have your vehicle protected while it is parked. When the dash cam is in parking mode, footage will only be saved when there is an impact and/or motion. Parking mode can be enabled with a hardwiring kit or a battery pack.

For more information on parking mode, click here.

What is a Hardwire Kit?

A hardwiring kit enables parking mode. It allows your dash cam to remain powered on even when the vehicle's ignition is turned off. Installation is a breeze as you will only need to find an accessory fuse, constant fuse, and a grounding point.

What is a Battery Pack?

Most customers purchase the battery pack to avoid using the vehicle’s battery to power their dash cam. The battery pack is charged by either being hardwired into an accessory fuse or by being plugged into one of the vehicle's 12-volt cigarette sockets. We recommend the hardwiring the battery pack as it charges the battery pack quicker.

How much footage will my memory card store?

On average, a 2-channel dash cam writes 16GB/hour and a 1-channel dash cam writes about 8GB/hour.

Do I need a Rear Camera?

Accidents or events don't always happen at the front of the vehicle! Having a rear camera provides coverage for any events or accidents that may happen at the rear of the vehicle.

For more information on rear view cameras, click here.

Do I need a IR Rear Camera?

An IR camera is designed to record the interior of the vehicle in low light conditions. This option is very popular among rideshare drivers.

For more information on why rideshare drivers need dash cams, click here.

What is a CPL filter?

A CPL filter attaches to the dash cam lens to eliminate lens flares, light reflections, and windshield glares.

Durable dashcam

This is my second review on this dash cam. I purchased the Skyview G1 in early 2015. It has been very reliable and has withstood use for 3 winters in Ontario (2015-2017) without a problem. It may be an entry level dash cam but it is well worth the money I spent.

Thank you very much, Art!

Video is wrong

Does not come with a permanent mount. Suction cup only. Your video should reflect that. The description says that but if you are going to show a video of it coming with a permanent mount you should state that it specifically does not come with a permanent mount and that your video is wrong. Or better yet, show a video of what people are actually buying.

Hey Jeff - sorry for the confusion. The 4th picture on the product page does show the mount, and the description underneath the product page (if you scroll down) does say 'Suction Cup Mount' included. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any other issues.

Great Camera

This is a really good camera. High quality and resolution. I'd recommend this to anyone. However the mount doesn't adjust much so when I tried to mount it in my semi it wouldn't swivel enough to see out the window on a vertical window. For a car with a slanted window it's perfect.

Hi Clayton, Good point! Generally we recommend adhesive mount dash cams for Semis as they can be positioned better on vertical windows and are less susceptible to vibrations. Thanks, Justin @ BlackboxMyCar
