Using A MicroSD Card

Using A MicroSD Card

The camera does not contain internal storage and requires a microSD card (Class 10+ recommended and 128GB Max supported) to function. A 128GB microSD card should store more than 16 hours of 1080p recordings. Use a high-quality brand name card for maximum reliability. Insert a microSD card into the camera’s microSD card slot. Later, when the camera is turned on, format it (‘Format’ option in the dash cam ‘Settings’) to make the card for first use in the dash cam. Formatting will forever erase any data on the micro SD card. For best performance, format occasionally (after backing up files).

Installation and Power On / Off

Install the AUKEY DRA1 at the top center of your windshield facing directly forward for optimal performance. Use the cable fasteners to help fix the power manacle snugly and securely, as shown in the image below.
