Back up your videos
Back up your videos regularly to external media such as blank CDs or DVDs (not included). To reduce the risk of losing recorded video on the Janus V2, make an extra copy of all important videos. All Janus V2 videos are stored in the data folder in the SDHC memory card. Videos end in a .JDF extension.
Formatting your SDHC memory card
Always use the Janus Viewer to format your memory card. By default, the Janus V2 memory card has four system folders: config, data, JANUS and update. Formatting your memory card using the Janus Viewer ensures that these folders are restored after you format your memory card. The Janus Viewer program automatically copies into the memory card’s JANUS directory. This allows you to run Janus Viewer on a foreign PC, without installing the Janus Viewer.
Preventing data loss on your SDHC memory card
Always power off your Janus V2 before removing the SDHC memory card. Removing the SDHC memory card when the Janus V2 is on may corrupt the files.
Replacing your SDHC memory card
The SDHC memory card included with your Janus V2 is a high-grade, Class-6 memory card. SDHC stands for Secure Digital High Capacity, and provides extended memory capacity compared to normal SD memory cards. Always replace damaged memory cards with Class-6 SDHC memory cards. The maximum supported size is 32 GB gigabytes.
Maintaining memory card health
Back up your files regularly, and format your SDHC memory card monthly. This ensures that the memory card operates error-free. After you format your SDHC memory card, you can restore your user settings. See “Restoring User Settings” on page 18 for details.
Viewing videos on your SDHC memory card
Always use the included SDHC memory card reader to view video files on your computer.
Should you lose or damage the included memory card reader, replace it with a SDHC memory card reader only.
Obtaining GPS signals
Always keep the GPS mounting bracket clear of obstructions.
The Janus V2 seeks GPS signals when it is powered on. Depending on weather conditions and your environment, it may take longer than usual for the GPS signal to lock in.
If you are in a garage, you may have to move your vehicle outdoors before the Janus V2 can detect a signal.
