2. Settings > apps & notifications > find "ZUS" > permissions > location on 

And repeat the paring process. 


Q3: How to format my SD card?

By device:

You need to manually tun off your Dash Cam ( press the LED button for 2 seconds until LED light off) before the formatting. When you see the indication light turns off, long press the button until the light turns to flashing blue. Wait until the LED indication light turn on white again, then you will know the SD card has been formatted successfully. 

By Computer:

You can also format your SD card by using a card reader in computer. File format should be:

Windows PC: FAT32


Q4: Why it takes so long time for the calibration page to come out?

This is a sign of your dash cam wi-fi could has been interfered by other WI-FI sources. Thus we would suggest you to:

1. move to an outdoor open environment to complete the calibration rather than indoor.

2. Also, it is normal that the first time calibration might take some times. You just need a little bit patience with us for about 2-3 minutes.

Things you need to make sure and try on are:

1. Dash Cam LED light is in breathing blue.

2. WI-FI is connected with your app

3. Exit and re-enter the calibration page for few times.
