With the launch of the iPhone 15 series and its Type-C charging port, we've upgraded our dashcams with Type-C ports too. This enhancement enables users to quickly download recorded footage and easily update firmware. Use a USB 2.0 Type-C to Type-C data cable to directly connect your smartphone for superfast photo and video transfers, as well as effortless dashcam firmware updates. This new connection method is compatible with smartphones like the iPhone 15 series and computers equipped with Type-C ports.


Benefits of Type-C to Type-C Data Transfer

One of the key highlights of this connection method is its ability to facilitate superfast downloads. Through the USB 2.0 Type-C to Type-C cable, users can swiftly transfer photos and video files from the dashcam's memory card to their smartphones. Specifically, the download speed is up to 20MB/s on iPhone 15. No longer is there a need to remove memory cards or employ a cumbersome computer—simply connecting the dashcam to the smartphone allows for quick access to the desired files. This convenience is a game-changer for users who want to promptly save or share their recorded footage.



Beyond file transfer, the Type-C to Type-C connection streamlines dashcam firmware updates. As technology evolves, we will frequently release new firmware versions to enhance product performance or address issues. With this new connection method, users can effortlessly download and install the latest firmware by connecting the dashcam to their smartphones. No additional devices or complicated steps are required.


However, while Type-C to Type-C data transfer offers numerous benefits, users should also be mindful of certain considerations during usage.
