Insert the SIM and SD cards into the dashcam

When you receive a new AI-12 dashcam, the SD card is already inserted. The SIM card is either purchased from Surfsight, in which case it's already inserted, or purchased separately and needs to be inserted. You may need to reinsert the SIM and SD cards, or insert new ones.


If there is a tamper-proof case over the SIM and SD card slots, it can be opened with the special screw driver included with your dashcam.

To install the SIM and SD cards:

  1. Use the special screwdriver included in the box when you purchased the dashcam to remove the safety screws that lock it.

  2. Insert the SIM and SD cards, as needed.



    Only insert a microSIM card. If you insert a different sized SIM card, it can damage the dashcam.
