Setting up Parking Mode for Nexar One
Updated over a week ago

This guide will help you understand the parking mode for your Nexar One dash cam and how to ensure it's working.

Your Nexar One dash cam is designed to go into a state of hibernation for utilizing its sensors when your vehicle is parked and detect impact while you are not nearby, to provide around-the-clock protection.

How Parking Mode Works

Parking Mode in Nexar One dash cams relies on sensors designed to detect impacts (e.g., a collision with your vehicle) and unusual movements while your vehicle is parked. Nexar utilizes these sensors to activate your Nexar One dash cam in the event of a hit-and-run incident while your vehicle is parked or an attempted car theft. When such events are detected, your Nexar One dash cam automatically powers on and captures a 30-second clip of the incident. This ensures that you have the necessary evidence you need.

How to Set Up Parking Mode

The Parking Mode feature will be activated automatically as soon as your Nexar One dash cam is paired successfully with the Nexar Connect app. When the Nexar Connect app detects a drop in voltage by the end of each drive, your Nexar One dash cam will enter the Parking Mode state and be on alert for impact.

To manually set up Parking Notifications for Nexar One, make sure your dash cam and phone are connected via WiFi, then launch the Nexar Connect app > Tap More > Tap Settings > Enable Parking Mode.

In case you are not interested in this feature, go to More > Settings and toggle off Parking Mode.

Make sure you have push notifications enabled on your phone for the Nexar Connect app.

What is Parking Location Detection

Parking Location Detection is a feature in the Nexar Connect app that allows you to record and track the specific location where your vehicle is parked. This can be beneficial for various reasons, such as locating your car in a crowded parking lot or providing information in case of an incident.

Enter the Activity tab to view the last saved parking location on the map. A single tap on the dash cam’s location pin triggers the Last Seen tooltip that indicates the last known location and the timestamp detected by the Nexar Connect app.

If you have a +Connectivity add-on with an active Nexar Connect subscription, the real-time location of the dash cam will appear.

On iOS, an additional tap will open the Last saved parking spot screen that triggers footage of the last 10 seconds of your drive to remind you where you parked.

What are Parking Incident Alerts

Parking Incident Alerts is a feature in the Nexar Connect App designed to notify you of any events or incidents that occur in or around your parked vehicle. You'll get parking incident notifications right away as soon as their details are sent to the cloud.

By tapping the Parking Incident Alert, you can view the video of the parking incident immediately.

How to View Parking Incidents

You can retrieve and view parking incident clips within the Nexar Connect App once your dash cam is powered on and you're in an area with cellular reception. Your parking incident clips will be saved to your Activity tab and labeled Parking Incident.
