Before you start recording with your FAS-CAM, make sure that the camera's firmware is up-to-date. Our current firmware that is compatible with our ACC Hardwire Kit.
Firmware controls the basic functioning of your dash cam. If your dash cam is NOT functioning correctly, you may need to update the firmware for your device. Updates may also be released to fix bugs, and improve the general functionality of the dash cam. It’s important to keep the firmware on your dash cam up-to-date so it can operate to its full capacity and functionality. Files saved on the TF Card (SD Card) will NOT be affected by the firmware updates but we do recommend you formatting the TF Card after the firmware update.
Make sure you update the firmware before installing the ACC Hardwire Kit. The ACC Hardwire Kit allows you to use Parking Mode with the F701-DR dash cam. Our kit powers your dash cam through your vehicle’s fuse box when the engine is off. This easy-to-install kit is all you need to enable 24hr surveillance for your vehicle.
Remove the TF Card (SD Card) from the dash cam and into a card reader. Always make sure that your camera is OFF when inserting or removing a memory card.
