NOTE: This article shows information of the firmware settings of the user's camera when the SD card is plugged into the computer and the camera settings are accessed via the SD Card Viewer option of the BlackVue PC Viewer.
G-Sensor (Normal mode) / G-Sensor (Parking mode)
The G-sensor measures the movement of your vehicle through 3 axes – up and down, side to side, and front and back. When the G-sensor detects significant or sudden movement (such as an impact or collision) it will trigger an event recording. You can adjust the sensitivity so minor incidents and bumps don’t trigger an event recording. To turn off event recordings by impact detection set the G-sensor sensitivity to off.
Advanced sensitivity settings for normal and parking mode
Advanced sensitivity settings allows you to fine-tune the event recording G-Sensor threshold, while watching pre-recorded G-Sensor data and video as a reference.
1. Click the Advanced settings button.
2. Double click the video from the list that you want to use as a G-Sensor data reference.
3. Set the thresholds by adjusting the control bars next to each G-Sensor axis. Any G-Sensor data that crosses over the threshold on any of the 3 axes will trigger an Event recording.
4. Click Save and close.
Motion detection (Parking mode)
In Motion Detection Parking Mode the dashcam continuously buffers video and saves a parking recording when motion is detected in the dashcam’s field of view.
You can adjust the sensitivity of the motion detection so minor motion caused by wind or rain doesn’t trigger a recording. Please take into account your vehicle’s surroundings when adjusting the sensitivity. You can also choose the detection regions to reduce the risk of triggering unwanted motion recordings due to trees swaying in the wind, far-away moving objects, etc. By default, all the regions are selected. If you want to ignore motion detection in particular region(s), unselect them.
