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.

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

Makes install super easy. Well worth the money.
It works as described with my Thinkware Q800 Pro, but unfortunately my vehicle (Range Rover Evoque) shows 'Low Battery' constantly with issues (trunk does not open, etc.).
Thus purchased the Cellink NEO battery park; as I am unable to use the OBD-II power cable, would appreciate a refund.
If my vehicle's battery was compatible, 5 stars. Thanks.
Ended up using the hardwire cable because this connector behaved funny with my vehicle. I have an 04 Toyota Camry and it would take about 10 minutes to turn off or go into parking mode (depending on how you set it) after the key was taken out of the ignition. Furthermore, if I were to replug the connector, or even jostle it a bit (easy to do because the OBD-II port is right where my legs are) it would send power to the dashcam even if the car is turned off, and once again run for about 10 minutes before shutting off or going into parking mode. I suspect this has to do with the way the port behaves on my car, and doesn't necessarily mean it will do the same on yours. However, I'd recommend just getting some add-a-fuse taps for a couple bucks and doing it that way as it will most definitely work if done correctly (and it's actually a lot simpler to do than it seems). That way your OBD port will also be free for you to connect a scanner, for instance, if you're trying to diagnose an issue while driving or get real time telemetry from your car without having to lose the functionality of your dashcam in the process. And you'll save some money as this cable ain't cheap.
Thankfully I have a friend with the exact same dashcam who is currently running it off a 12 volt socket, so we will try this connector on his Subaru and see how that works.
TL;DR - avoid this cable if you can and just tap into your fuse panel, and if you really don't want to deal with the fuse panel make sure to test this connector thoroughly before installing.
