Please seek assistance from a trained mechanic before attempting this installation. (NOTE: Hardwire is NOT included in the packing list.)

Where should I place the dashcam?

  • We recommend that you mount the car dashcam as close to the center of the windshield as possible. This should neither distract the driver nor block the driver’s view (see 2.2-2.4).

Why does the dashcam stop recording after some time?

  • If motion detection is enabled, the dashcam will automatically stop recording when no movement is detected for more than 5 minutes (see 3.6).
  • Your micro SD card may be full and need to be formatted before using it again. 1440P and 1080P videos occupy a lot of card capacity and G-Sensor protected videos cannot be erased automatically. We recommend formatting your memory card every 14 days.

Why do you recommend a Class 10 micro SD card or above?

  • 1440P and 1080P videos have a bigger data flow and hence require a micro SD card with faster writing speed. If memory cards below Class10 are used, they may cause the dashcam to freeze or other related video recording/erasing

How do I tum off audio during recording?

  • To turn off the Audio Recording, press the Right-arrow Button (13) once during (Please note: this does not interrupt the video recording).

How do I start recording videos?

  • The Z3Pro dashcam is programmed to automatically record when there is power connected and a memory card inserted. When the engine is turned off or power is disconnected, the dashcam will stop recording and turn off.
  • It is recommended to format the SD card before initial use.
