View recordings from Recordings

The SurfsightAI-12 dashcam constantly records the trip on a local SD card. The video recordings from the dashcam can then be viewed and downloaded directly from MyGeotab, without access to the SD card in the camera.

You can access these recordings from Map and from the Recordings area. From the Map area, it's convenient to find recordings based on different points of the trip path.

Download the following recordings from the Recordings area:

  • recordings from road-facing cameras and in-cabin-facing cameras

  • recordings from auxiliary devices

  • recordings by date and time

Note

The Surfsightdashcam needs to be online or in Standby mode in order to view or download recordings.
