Hello, y’all. I just got myself a ROAV C2 dashcam (used from eBay) a few days ago and I noticed that the camera only stays on and recording for 10 additional seconds after turning the ignition off in my vehicle. I also have a C1 dashcam (that I bought new and have been using for almost a year now) and it stays recording for either 30 or 60 second (I don’t recall which) after turning off the vehicle, and I liked that longer recording timer better.
So, I was wondering, is there a way to change it so that the C2 stays recording for more than 10 seconds after turning off the ignition/cutting the power to it? And if so, how could I change this setting to 30-60 seconds?
Also, does anyone have any suggestions about which recording settings are best to use on the C2? I noticed that there is some sort of “Night Enhancement View” option, which is obviously helpful at night, but is it necessary to change that setting to one of the other options when driving during the daytime? And is it best to just use the highest resolution settings? Or is the visual difference on the recorded video not that noticeable?
And one more thing. Is there a way to buy a replacement MicroUSB cable for these ROAV dashcams? I found some ‘11-ft. Right Angle MicroUSB Cables’ on Amazon that look like they will work, for around $8, but there were some comments complaining and saying that the part of the cord that plugs in to the dashcam was actually a left angle connector and would not fit properly, because of the dashcam’s mounting parts. So, if there is a way to buy an official Anker ROAV replacement power cable (as long as it would not be significantly more expensive), some information or a link would be great to have. The reason I am asking about this is because the C2 dash cam that I bought used from eBay did not come with a power cable.
If anyone has any helpful information or advice/suggestions for me about the C2 dashcam, I would really appreciate some replies!
