You must insert a microSD memory card into the DrivePro before you can start recording.

 1. Insert a microSD memory card into the card slot of the DrivePro.


  • Always format a new memory card in the DrivePro before using it for the first time. To format a memory card, you can either download the DrivePro app and access Settings for operation, or connect the power and long-press the emergency button until the red light flashes rapidly.
    Note: After long-pressing the emergency button of the dashcam, the device settings will be restored to default.
  • Formatting will erase all data on the memory card.
  • DrivePro 10 supports only the FAT32 file system and does not support exFAT or NTFS.
  • Ensure the allocation unit size of the microSD card is 32KB or larger; if not, the DrivePro may not work properly.

 2. To remove, push to eject the memory card out of the slot.


To prevent damage to the memory card and potential data loss, please do not remove the memory card during a shutdown.

  • For more details on the approximate recording time according to card capacity, go to FAQ on our official website.

3. Recording Videos

3-1 Normal Recording

After the car engine is switched on, the DrivePro will automatically power on and start recording.

By default, one video file is saved for every minute of recording. To adjust the recording length, go to Settings in the DrivePro app. After the car engine is switched off, the DrivePro will automatically save the current recording and power off.


Lighter sockets of some types of vehicles will still supply power after the car engine is turned off. If your car is of this type, please unplug your dashcam from the lighter socket to avoid unnecessary power consumption and unexpected issues.

3-2 Emergency Recording

30% of the storage space will be saved for emergency video files. Video files recorded in emergency mode are protected from being overwritten.

Manual Emergency Recording
During video recording, press the emergency button on the side of the DrivePro to manually activate Emergency Recording. The LED indicator will start flashing (either red or blue) quickly.

G-Sensor Emergency Recording
During video recording, the DrivePro automatically activates Emergency Recording mode when detecting a collision or hit.

  • If the G-Sensor sensitivity is set to “High”, even minor shocks activate Emergency Recording mode.
  • If the G-Sensor sensitivity is set to “Low”, only significant shocks activate Emergency Recording mode.

G-Sensor sensitivity can be adjusted in Settings in the DrivePro app.


Once the storage space reaches 30% capacity, the DrivePro will overwrite the earliest emergency file saved with the latest one recorded.
