Hardwiring it, is the same as hard wiring any dash cam either you do it with your OBD port or you hardwire into your fuse box with a splitter fuse.
  Main reason why anyone would want to hard wire it is because you don't want to wire in your charging port 99% of the time.

 There's a special kit for this one which you can see in the questions and answers on this product don't know if they came out with it yet.

There’s a card inside the box with instructions to contact them for a free one. I’d imagine it’s for the OBD cable, but some people think it’s bad for the car.

Noob question: Can having a rear camera on a dashcam backfire?
Lemoshol: Say that someone gets into an accident, they submit the footage to the insurance to prove they were in the right. One minute before the accident they were texting by a light, and it was captured by the rear cam. Can the insurance/court use this to prove that the person is an irresponsible driver, and make him/her lose the case, or at least raise their insurance premiums?

Before you give in the video you should cut the video to the part of the accident only

Why is it bad? What's the difference where it's plugged in?
  The battery is being recharged each time you turn the engine on.

mine works that when the car gets a hard knock the dash cam turns on and starts recording.
though the recording starts approx. 5-10 seconds after the the knock but it saved me $1200 when someone hit my car when it was parked and left the seen without leaving details and that man came out checking out what happened to my car i was able to see him on the camera and i knew the man face from shul so i got him to pay for it!!

That must’ve been so awkward.

I mean, how does the camera switch back and forth between parking mode and regular mode?

Not sure what your question is, but this is how it works:
Regular mode
When your turn on your car the camera turns on when turn your car off the camera turns off after 60 seconds.
Parking mode
When your car is turned off and the camera is off as well some sensor I guess is still on in the camera that's sensitive to sudden shaking, so when someone knocks into your car the sensor will turn in the camera so it will record what's going on and will then turn off after 60 seconds or will continue to be on if another knock is detected.

Anything else?

How does the camera know to switch the mode? Speed from GPS? Or it knows when the engine gets turned off?

So it seems that my Roav Duo doesn’t do that. Turns off automatically after 5 minutes of being stopped, regardless if engine is running. Sounds like it does that from GPS. Then it only turns back on after a bump. Sounds like they’re relying on my slamming a door or something to get the thing to turn back on.

That's probably a setting
