Make sure that you mount the front camera in a safe, appropriate location where it won’t obstruct the driver’s view. Clean your windshield before applying the mount. Wait at least 20 minutes after applying the mount to the windshield before attaching the camera.

The V1P Gen3 accepts Micro SD memory cards (class 10 or higher) with a maximum capacity of 256GB.

Depending on the memory card manufacturer and type, some cards may not be compatible with your device. Using an incompatible card may damage the device or the memory card or corrupt the data stored on it.

We highly recommend using Micro SD cards that are specifically designated for use with dash cams. You can find our recommendations on our website: www.rexingusa.com/memory-card/.

Note: Before inserting or removing a memory card, first ensure you’ve powered down the device.

Inserting a memory card

      1. If the device is powered on, press and hold the Power button to power down.
      2. Insert the card in the orientation shown.
      3. Push the card into the slot, listening for a click sound signaling the card is securely inserted.

Removing a Memory Card
Before removing a memory card from your V1P Gen3, you must first dismount it for safe removal.

With the device powered down, press down on the memory card until you hear a click. Gently remove your finger (or other pressing object) to allow the spring release to push the memory card out of the slot.

Do not remove the memory card while the device is transferring or accessing information. Doing so can result in data loss or corruption or damage to the memory card or device. Rexing is not responsible for losses that result from the use of damaged memory cards, including the loss of data.

You must always connect the V1P Gen3 to a power source while operating the camera. Connect the camera to your vehicle via the included car charger cable. Connect the larger end of the car charger cable to your car’s cigarette lighter (12V DC power outlet). Connect the other Mini-USB end to the Mini-USB port on the device.

Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty. Use only Rexing-approved chargers. Using unapproved chargers or cables can damage the device.

If the device receives an unstable power supply, the screen

may not function properly. If the device is not operating properly using a Rexing-approved charger, please contact Customer Care ().

Before formatting your memory card, always remember to make backup copies of all important data stored on the device. The manufacturer’s warranty does not cover loss of data resulting from user actions.

For best results, format the memory card using the Format function on your camera.

It’s recommended that you format your memory card after transferring files to your computer or at least once a month.

Using your camera to format a memory card:

      1. Upon turning on the camera, press the REC button to stop recording.
      2. Press the MENU button twice to enter the Setup Menu.
      3. Use the REC and MIC buttons to navigate to the “Format” option.

      6. If you followed the instructions above, you should see a blue box asking you to please wait while the card is being formatted. Formatting should only take a moment, and you will be taken back to the Setup Menu once formatting is complete.
      7. At this point, discount from the power source. The camera will shut down automatically after 3 seconds. The next time the camera is connected to power, the camera should start up and begin recording automatically.

Mount the rear camera as shown above. Use the provided rear camera cable to connect the rear camera to the front camera.

Run the cable down from your camera to the 12V cigarette lighter port of your vehicle. Be sure to connect only Rexingapproved chargers designed and supplied specifically for use with your device. Using an incompatible charger can cause serious personal injury or damage to your device.

To turn off the device, again press and hold the Power button for a few seconds. A goodbye message will be displayed onscreen.

The V1P Gen3 will switch on and off automatically if you keep it connected using the car charger. The camera will automatically start recording when powered on. After power is diconnected, the device will shut down after 3 seconds.

Note: If your car cigarette lighter provides constant power, the unit may not turn on and off automatically with the car.
