DRIVE!
Drive HD Dash Cams are designed to set and forget. After initial setup the unit will turn on and
start recording as soon as power is applied. When the Micro SD Card is full the oldest footage
will be deleted to make way for the new. If you witness something that you don’t want to be
deleted simply press the Emergency Record button and it will be saved forever.

BASIC OPERATION
POWERING ON THE DEVICE
The device will power on automatically when plugged in and can also be powered by PRESSING
AND HOLDING the On/Off button until the display activates (when connected to power).

THE MICRO SD MEMORY CARD
The device comes with a Micro SD memory card. To remove the SD card, press firmly on the SD
card to push it further into the slot. There will be a click and the SD card will pop out on
release. Extract the card and replace as necessary by inserting a card into the slot and pressing
until it locks in place. These cameras are compatible with Micro SD cards up to 64GB. Please be
sure to format the card in-camera before use. Class 10 high endurance cards from reputable
brands are recommended.

CONTINUOUS LOOP RECORDING:
Once the memory card is full, the camera will continuously overwrite the oldest footage
recorded. To protect a clip so that it will not be overwritten, press the Emergency Record
Button. The emergency record icon will show on the screen. Files can also be locked from the
playback menu in Video Playback Mode.

EMERGENCY RECORDING
An Emergency Recording is triggered when the Emergency Record Button at the top of the unit
is pressed or when the G-Sensor registers an impact. Emergency Recordings create locked files
that are not overwritten by Continuous Loop Recording. To ensure that important footage isn’t
lost surrounding an incident, adjacent video clips are locked if the incident happens within 30
seconds of the beginning or end of a clip.

VIDEO SETTINGS
Video Resolution:
This setting allows you to set the video recording resolution:
Higher resolutions will give you a sharper image, but take up more memory on the card.

The available resolutions are:
1296P Super HD 2304×1296 30 Frames per Second
1080P Full HD 1920×1080 30 Frames per Second
720P HD 60fps 1280×720 60 Frames per Second
720P HD 30fps 1280×720 30 Frames per Second

Dual View Models Only – For dual camera models, Video Resolution is broken down into Cam1
Resolution and Cam2 Resolution. Note that 720P 30fps is the only resolution option
for Cam2. When in Dual Cam Mode, Cam1 is limited to 1080P Full HD.

Loop Clip Time:
This setting allows you to control the duration of each individual loop clip. Clips can be set to
durations of 3 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or off. In general, 3-minute clips are preferred
because the file size is much more manageable when transferring to a computer for editing.

G-Sensor:
The Drive HD Dash Cam includes a built in G-Sensor which allows the device to determine when
the car has been in a collision. If it detects a collision, it automatically locks the recording being
made at the time of the accident. You can use this setting to set the sensitivity of the G-Sensor
from 1-3 or turn it off. Level 1 is the easiest to activate the G-sensor and the G-Sensor may lock
files due to bumps like potholes and the SD card may fill up with protected files. Level 3 is the
hardest to activate the G-sensor.

Level 1<> = Easiest to activate the G-sensor
Level 2 <<>> = Moderate to activate the G-Sensor
Level 3 <<<>>> = Hardest to activate the G-sensor

14 | P a g e

Parking Mode:
Parking Mode uses the Motion Sensor and G-Sensor to optimize recording functionality while
your vehicle is parked. The idea is that when you are parked, the dash cam will be “sleeping”
but it will monitor the video image for motion and it will also monitor the G-sensor. If it detects
motion or if it detects an impact then the unit will wake up and start recording.

There are two time settings for the timeout for going into Parking Mode: 5 minutes and 10
minutes. If no motion is detected for the chosen timeout, then the display will turn off and the
recording will stop (it is now sleeping). If motion is detected or if the G-sensor is triggered then
the unit will wake up and start recording. It will continue recording until the timeout again
triggers Parking Mode.

NOTES:

• Parking Mode only works if the dash cam is powered. Either the vehicle must have an
always-on accessory port, or the dash cam must be hardwired to a constant power
source (use optional hardwire cord CA-MicroUSB-001).
• If you are driving on a lonely stretch of highway where the scenery is not changing much
then it might trigger Parking Mode and the unit will unexpectedly go to sleep.
• If you park where there is lots of activity which keeps triggering the motion sensor, then
the unit might never time out and enter Parking Mode.

Cobra Watermark, Date/Time Stamp, & Time Stamp Format:
These menu options change the watermark & time stamp that will appear on the saved video
files.

Flip Cam2 (Dual View Models Only)
Depending on how you mount Cam2 the video may be upside down. Select Flip Cam2 to flip
the video vertically so that it appears correctly on the screen and in recorded files.
Mirror Cam2 (Dual View Models Only)
Selecting Mirror Cam2 flips the video horizontally so that left is right and right is left. This is
important for when Cam2 is mounted facing backwards. Mirrored video appears correctly on
the dash cam screen because it mimics what you see in the rear-view mirror. Unselecting
Mirror Cam2 will look incorrect on the dash cam screen, but appears correct to your brain when
viewing recordings on a computer or TV. Mirror Cam2 is selected as OFF by default.

Lane Departure
The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) provides audible and visual warnings as you
approach a lane boundary. It will indicate whether you are departing the lane to the left or to
the right. Note that this feature relies solely on analyzing video of the road ahead and,
therefore, works best on clearly marked roads with good visibility. This feature is for
information purposes only. See the Trademark Acknowledgement, Warnings, and Regulatory
Information section below for the full legal disclaimer for using this feature.
Forward Collision Warning
The Frontal Collision Warning System (FCWS) provides audible and visual warnings if you are
quickly approaching an obstacle in the road ahead. Note that this feature relies solely on
analyzing video of the road ahead and, therefore, works best with good visibility. This feature is
