The 250-8950 DVR system record videos until the SD card has reached its capacity. Once this occurs, the system begins to overwrite video from the oldest to the most recent.
A unique feature of the 250-8950 DVR system is its ability to continue recording video from both front and rear-facing cameras even after the vehicle’s ignition has been shut off. During installation, a connection will be made to a constant input power source allowing the system to continue operating even when the vehicle is parked giving drivers a new sense of security while away from their vehicle.
The GPS antenna included with the 250-8950 DVR system allows for real-time recording of a vehicle’s speed and direction which can be overlaid onto a Google Map when using the desktop video viewing program.
Note: Desktop video viewing program only available for Windows-based personal computers.
The 250-8950 includes a multi-axis G-shock sensor system designed to automatically tag videos for permanent storage while operating on the road or when stationary in Parking Mode.
While operating in Parking Mode, the 250-8950 system draws minimal power from the vehicle’s battery (320mA@12V) to record after the ignition is powered off and can be configured with multiple complete shutdown options including voltage-based (battery drops to 11.5V, 11.7V, 11.9V, 12.1V, 12.3V), or time-based (6hr, 12hr, 24hr, 36hr, 48hr).
