To use Standby mode, the dashcam must be connected to a constant power source. See Hardwire the dashcam to the vehicle fuse box for more details.
While in Standby mode, you can retrieve recordings from the dashcam. In Standby mode, the dashcam draws a current of 34 mA.
The dashcam moves to Standby mode at a minimum of ten minutes and a maximum of sixty minutes after the vehicle stops moving. This enables continued streaming and recording from the vehicle for that grace period after the driver has turned off the vehicle. Adjust the amount of Idle minutes to enter standby from the Settings menu of the dashcam, from the Surfsight™ Portal, or from the MyGeotab portal.
The dashcam exits standby mode once the vehicle starts moving again.
