TAT File System/Storage Architecture

The TAT file system is a new way of cataloging data on removable storage devices like an SD card and features:

Looping Video Overwrite

The 250-8950 DVR system record videos until the SD card has reached its capacity. Once this occurs, the system begins to overwrite video from the oldest to the most recent.

Parking Mode

A unique feature of the 250-8950 DVR system is its ability to continue recording video from both front and rear-facing cameras even after the vehicle’s ignition has been shut off. During installation, a connection will be made to a constant input power source allowing the system to continue operating even when the vehicle is parked giving drivers a new sense of security while away from their vehicle.

GPS Recording and Route/Speed Readout

The GPS antenna included with the 250-8950 DVR system allows for real-time recording of a vehicle’s speed and direction which can be overlaid onto a Google Map when using the desktop video viewing program.

Note: Desktop video viewing program only available for Windows-based personal computers.

3-Axis Gravity Sensor

The 250-8950 includes a multi-axis G-shock sensor system designed to automatically tag videos for permanent storage while operating on the road or when stationary in Parking Mode.

Low Power Consumption & Auto-Shutdown

While operating in Parking Mode, the 250-8950 system draws minimal power from the vehicle’s battery (320mA@12V) to record after the ignition is powered off and can be configured with multiple complete shutdown options including voltage-based (battery drops to 11.5V, 11.7V, 11.9V, 12.1V, 12.3V), or time-based (6hr, 12hr, 24hr, 36hr, 48hr).
