Thinkware F770 Voltage Setting

Hi guys. A bit of advice please from those of you with this Thinkware dashcam. What voltage have you set for it to shut down to prevent battery drain. I've got mine on 12 volts currently but that means it doesn't stay on long in park recording mode before turning off. Wonder how low I could set it but still leave enough power (with a margin) to start the car. Robin

I might get one of these and tuck it under the passengers seat. I currently power my dashcam with a long lead routed to rear seats 12V socket.....

United Kingdom 2010 Range Rover Sport 3.0 TDV6 HSE Zermatt Silver

I just installed mine and its set at the highest to see how it gets on as I don't know what state the battery is in. I previously had it in my 2015 Honda Civic on the same setting and as far as I could tell, it never shut down. Of course, that was a 12 month old battery Very Happy .
I will be interested to see how you guys get on with it.

That looks a really good option - but at a price.

I'll take a chance on the npinks route at least initially and try a lower voltage setting to see how that goes (flat battery, here I come... Confused ) Robin

When I had the RRS I had a Blackvue and had to set it on lowest voltage or it would switch off in winter with heated seats etc on

When I got the DS with auto stop/start I found connecting ctek through tow socket when parked at home but not used helped keep battery topped up otherwise Thinkware switched off as soon as I parked

Had no issues with Mitsubishi PHEV as it's plugged in when parked and tops up start battery daily automatically

I've fitted Thinkware in Lexus now too but not checked to see how it's working - will look at this over weekend
