How do I achieve Parking Mode with the cigarette lighter adapter for my Thinkware camera?Updated a year ago

The car charger (cigarette lighter cable) does not have the necessary wires to put the dash cam into parking mode (if your cigarette socket outlet always has power, this is still heavily not recommended, as the camera will not go into parking mode, and the voltage protection will not be enabled. It could kill your car battery). 

You will require a hardwiring cable or OBD-II harness to activate the parking mode feature.
