Which output cable do I need for my dash cam?

BlackboxMyCar Updated by BlackboxMyCar

Female 12V Cigarette Socket Output: This should be used for BlackVue dash cams and other cameras that switch into parking mode using the G-sensor. These are cameras that switch into parking mode after your vehicle is parked for a few minutes. The BlackSys dash cams can also work with this output method if the 'Use External Power' option is enabled.

Spliced Hardwire Kit Output Harness: This kit is designed to work with the VIOFO  and Thinkware dash cams. The hardwire kit is pre-spliced by one of our technicians so that it will switch into parking mode based on the ignition. Thinkware dash cams will not switch into parking mode if the female cigarette socket is used.

How did we do?

If I hardwire the BI-750 to my car and connect to my dash cam, will it automatically switch to parking mode if I turn the ignition off?

What is the difference between using hardwiring and using the cigarette socket to charge my BI-750?
