Hello Viofo Support Team,
I purchased the A139 3ch cam and connected it with a Remaster OBD2 connector with switch. The cam works just fine, besides parking mode. It doesn’t switch to parking mode after 5mins., as described many times in this forum.

is there a specific reason this will not work? It must be a firmware issue, I guess. Since there is power, why shouldn’t it turn to parking mode if there is no GPS movement and 5 mins. are passed? What is the technical reason it demands a specific cable to achieve this?

I would appreciate to learn more about this, since I need to decide if to keep the unit or not. I cannot use the hardwire kit, so this solution with OBD2 cable is the best for me.
Thank you! BR

Hello,
Using an OBD2 cable for parking mode is not recommended. It's hard to judge the ACC signal. If you want parking mode without HK3 hardwire kit. You can use the provided car charger to connect a power bank. We would recommend purchasing a power bank with a car charger adapter included from BlackBoxMyCar.
