I have a 129 Plus to replace an ageing V119 which is already hard wired into the switched 12v accessory supply. It will be sometime before I can get round to hardwiring the 129 into the car with the parking power kit. I was wondered if it was possible to use the 129 purely as a parking monitor powered only from a powerbank? This is so I can use it through the motion detection as a discrete security camera to confirm nuisance activity on my driveway.

I have gone through various settings whilst connected to the powerbank and it has shown 'parking mode' as well as 'normal driving' files in the app from the same settings but in the messing about of starting wifi and connecting to the phone app I have not been able to pinpoint under what circumstances or replicate how these were recorded. The 129 seems to eventually switch back into standard driving recording mode. Can anyone suggest whether what I am trying to do is possible or what the settings need to be?

If it's not possible to use parking mode from the powerbank my next option will be to try various resolutions/ bitrates in the normal driving motion detection setting which does appear to work but have yet to test out how long the 25600mAh powerbank will last in this mode.

A129 Plus would enter parking mode when there is no motion detected for 5 mins.

This dashcam doesn't support the use app during parking mode.
