Parking Mode and Motion Detection can be turned on in the camera’s settings. These two features will monitor your vehicle automatically when the unit is connected directly to the car’s vehicle via hardwire kit (part CA-MICROUSB-001 available at www.cobra.com) for SC100 and SC201. Hardwire kit for SC200 and SC200D is coming soon.
Note: When the car is parked your unit will go into a low-power “standby”/sleeping state where it monitors for activity. The unit will automatically wake up when it detects significant motion or driving.
