Intelligent Parking Mode

How does this work?

Intelligent Parking Mode records any bump or physical movement on the vehicle while your car is parked. With a parking camera for your car, you will know exactly when and where your car has been bumped. This car security camera system adds an extra layer of protection to give you greater peace of mind. 

Turn it 'ON' or 'OFF'

Intelligent Parking Mode is an option that can be selected in the menu of every new Series 2 Dash Cam. As soon as you park and the ignition is turned off, the Dash Cam will automatically switch into Parking Mode by shutting down everything except the G Force sensor. The sensitivity of the G Force sensor is then increased dramatically.

G Force Assistance

Power consumption is incredibly low with only the G Force sensor active, meaning the Dash Cam can use its internal battery to detect any knock or bump to your vehicle for longer a week.

If your car is bumped and the G Force sensor registers movement, your Nextbase Dash Cam will automatically switch on, record for 30 seconds, and then shut down again. If you are unlucky enough to be hit twice in a row, the Dash Cam would automatically record again and capture both events. The car parking camera will be your best ally in case of an accident.


Please be advised that when using a front facing dash cam along with a rear camera the parking mode feature will not work due to the power required and the size of the dash cams battery. To overcome this, we advise using a hardwire kit on a permanent fuse to ensure an open power feed to the dash cam so the feature may function. If the feature is turned off, the camera will not shut down causing a more substantial drain on the car battery.
