      What type of Micro SD card should I use and what is the maximum compatible size for use in this camera?          
      remove
      add

      The maximum compatible SD card for the 380GWX is 128GB. We would recommend a Dash Cam compatible 8GB-128GB U3 Micro SD card, specifically designed for Dash Cam or CCTV usage. We would recommend a Nextbase SD card for guaranteed functionality within a Nextbase product

      Why do I need to format my SD card?                
      remove
      add

      Regarding the recording lengths, the camera will record continuously in small segments. It will record these segments consecutively until the SD card is full. Then the oldest piece of footage will be deleted, and the newest will be saved in its place. This will continue looping and is called Continuous Overwriting. The Dash Cam does this automatically to allow for more footage to be recorded and the old, unnecessary footage to be deleted without manual intervention. However Protected Files are not overwritten in the same way. These can build up and prevent normal footage from being recorded. It is crucial to format every 2 weeks to delete any built-up footage.

      How do I format my SD card?                                 
      remove
      add

      You can re-format the card by two methods;

      1) On the Dash Cam Itself
      2) On a Computer

      1) On the Dash Cam:
      a) Turn on the Dash Cam
      b) Stop it recording (press the red button once under the flap on the side of the camera).
      c) Click and hold the red triangle for 6 seconds.
      d) The yellow LED will then flash.

      2) On a Computer:
      a) Plug the SD card into the SD card port, or plug the provided USB cable into the port on the top of the camera.
      b) When the drive appears, right click on the drive.
      c) Select 'Format' (Windows) or 'Erase' (Mac)
      e) Do not click the 'Quick Format box'. Please ensure it's formatted as exFAt or FAT32.
      f) Follow the instructions.

      Please be aware that formatting the SD card will delete all the data on the card, so if you wish to keep any footage, please copy this across to a computer before you start the formatting process.

      We recommend reformatting the SD card every 2-3 weeks to prolong the life of the card.

      What do the LEDs on the top of the camera mean?          
      remove
      add

      Blue: This is the battery indicator. (This will only function when a battery pack is in use)
      If the blue LED is flashing quickly then the battery is low.
      If it's a solid blue then the battery is charging.

      Red: This is the power indicator.
      If the red LED is flashing slowly, then the camera is recording.
      If it's flashing quickly, then the camera is updating the firmware.
      If it's solid red then the camera is turned on.

      Yellow: This is the GPS and formatting indicator.
      If the yellow LED is flashing slowly, then the camera is searching for GPS.
      If it's flashing quickly, then the camera is formatting the SD card.
      If it's solid yellow then the camera has GPS signal.

      The red / blue triangle is illuminated on the top of the camera, what does that mean?                         
      remove
      add

      The Red triangle is the Protect button.
      If this is slowly flashing, then the camera is connected to a computer in Mass Storage Mode.
      If it's quickly flashing, then the card requires formatting, or has corrupted.
      If the Protect button is solid red, then the footage is being protected.


      The Blue triangle is the Wi-Fi button.
      If this is slowly flashing, then the camera is in Wi-Fi mode or Update Mode.
      If it's quickly flashing, then the card requires formatting, or has corrupted.
      If the Wi-Fi button is solid blue, then the camera is connected to a mobile phone
