Highly convenient. I had no issues installing this myself. This allows my Garmin Dash Cam 55 record while parked, and I get to keep my phone charging port.

Pros: Parking Mode recording. Keep your charging socket open for you phone.

Cons:

perfect wiring kit to get rid of the cig lighter power cord

Crutchfield customer from Kingman, AZ on 1/23/2018

just enough wiring for my jeep wrangler....a bigger vehicle might be short on wiring????? like the 90 degree angle on the end going into the cam...looks better and easy to route away from cam...now this plug for this dash cam is not taking up my only oem power plug!

Pros: neat ...out of sight forever

Cons: just enough wires for average car ...bigger truck etc may be short?

Works as intended. If you are not use to doing this type of work you may need to watch a few videos. There are no instructions on how to install the device. Consider purchasing fuse taps to help with the install.

Pros: Hard wire into fuse box, clean install

Cons: No instructions

Garmin Parking Mode Cable

Mark from Torrance, CA on 6/30/2017

easy install, just order some mini fust tap adapters, they just crimp to the 2 wires, use a continuity checker to find a 12volt always hot location and a 12v accessory while key is in on position location in the fuse box. just plug these taps in and there is one ground wire that you can use a taping screw if you dont have a ground location. Wires was easy to route to headboard and through piller to fuse box to make it look like a pro install. hardwired, freeing up cig lighter for other things like usb chargers is a plus. Parking mode allows the unit to turn on and take a short video or snapshots when it detects movement. So overall, anyone with a garmin dash cam 45-65 should get this just to hard wire it.

Pros: good length - was plenty long to wire to center top of my windshield on a larger suv.

Cons: would have been nice if it came with fuse box taps already installed, but really no cons

More details on the Garmin Parking Mode Cable

Product Research

Features

Overview: This Parking Mode Cable is designed for use with Garmin Dash Cam 45, 46, 55, 56, 65W, and 66W, providing power to the Dash Cam when the vehicle's ignition switch is turned off. You can also use the cable to hard wire the Dash Cam into your vehicle's electrical system, preventing the need for the supplied cable and using one of your vehicle's 12V power ports.

Parking Mode: The Dash Cam records video while you're driving down the road. It can also keep an eye on your vehicle when you're parked. When activated, the Dash Cam will start recording when the camera sensor detects motion.

Dimensions: The Parking Mode Cable features a 1-7/8" x 1-5/8" x 7/8" module with cables coming out each end. On the vehicle end, the 38" cable terminates into separate constant power (yellow), switched power (red), and ground (black) wires. The ground wire has a spade connector on the end. On the Dash Cam side, the 10' cable features a Micro-B USB connector that plugs into the side of the camera.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
To enable recording while parked [ MARK  Sep 11, 2019 ]
A
Need this to use some of the features of the dash cam....mainly the recording of incidents when parked. [ JEFFREY  May 28, 2019 ]
A
Simplify connection to dash cam. [ Gabriel  May 06, 2019 ]
A
The cable supports two very important issues. I make a lot of short trips, so camera battery charging is an issue without a cable like this. This cable keeps your camera charging, even while parked. It contains a battery drain shut off to keep it from draining the battery. It also allows the camera to operate in a parking mode, keeping an eye on your car when you are not there. [ Scott  Aug 09, 2018 ]

I don't like the CLA cord hanging down and this makes for a clean install. [ Jody  Jul 01, 2018 ]
