Power off or restart the dashcam

If you are not installing the dashcam in a vehicle, it's important to power off the dashcam correctly so that battery resources are not used unnecessarily. To power off, see the section power off or restart for the first time.

There are several ways to restart (reboot) the dashcam:

Automatic restart (reboot)

The dashcam auto reboots daily.

Manual restart (reboot)

A manual restart (reboot) retains the user password and user settings. The SD card is not affected.

There are two ways to do a manual restart (reboot): from the dashcam or from the Partner portal.

Method 1: from the dashcam

  1. Open the SD card cover.

  2. On the side of the dashcam, short press the Reset button (pin hole).

    The dashcam shuts down and restarts.

Method 2: from the Partner Portal

  1. From the Devices area, select the device and click the three-dot menu.

  2. Click Reboot. A confirmation window pops up.

  3. Click OK. The device restarts.

Factory reset

A factory reset restores the factory default settings and deletes the user password and user settings. The SD card is not affected.

To perform a factory reset, see Reset the dashcam.
