Navigate the dashcam screen

To access the dashcam, get the driver PIN for the dashcam you're using from the person who administers them in your company. Once you unlock the dashcam, you can view Live Video and Recordings from the dashcam.

To turn on the dashcam screen and access the menu:

  1. When you are in the parked vehicle with the parking brake on, the ignition on and the door closed, press the touchscreen of the dashcam to view the PIN screen.

  2. Enter your PIN to unlock the dashcam.

    The main menu appears similar to the following:
