    Jimbo I think your's is faulty. I have 'turned on' my parking mode and accepted the default sensitivity of Medium. Depending on how hard I shut the door it will switch on as your's does but mine keeps recording after the 2 mins. The 2 min recording started by the 'shock' is locked for future reference (in case it was a 'shunt') but the rest is not (as you would expect).

    Have you tried updating the firmware?

    It seems ok so far but I only bought a 16GB SD card and they only save about 30 mins of recording before overwriting. Not a major problem.

    As usual with these things at my age it takes a little while to fully understand everything and I always print the manual. However the defaults are such that you can just use it 'out of the box' once charged and you have downloaded the latest firmware.

    i just use it in its normal mode but i might try decreasing the sensitivity.

    Update on the parking mode. I've had mine switched on and so it records a 'protected' file each time I slam the door. These will fill the SD card if left undeleted. To delete them is a bit of a phaff you have to delete each one individually which is long-winded (unless I'm missing a 'trick' ).

    It's nice to know when I'm driving I could have a camera on 'my side' if I needed it.
