Video Guide for RoadHawk HD and RoadHawk HD Software
(Also applies to RoadHawk DC-2 Camera)
RoadHawk DC-2 Software is both PC and MAC compatible. This app is designed to be as easy to use as possible.
It will auto update your camera for you and more features will continue to be added by RoadHawk at regular intervals.
When you run the RoadHawk software it will look for the SD card from the RoadHawk HD camera. If the SD card is blank, the software will NOT see the SD Card.
You MUST use the SD card in the camera BEFORE using this software.
Once you insert the SD card from the camera in to your computer it will list all the video files on that card on the right hand side of the screen.
A USB card reader is supplied with the RoadHawk DC-2 camera.
Just above the list of files you will see three buttons. EVENT, NORMAL and ALL.
EVENT: will list only the files that have been created by the camera because of an EVENT.
This could be a collision, a pothole or a manual event created by pressing the E button on the camera.
NORMAL: Will display only NORMAL video files created by the camera, this should be your normal everyday driving.
Depending on the size of the SD card you are using and also depending on the quality settings, you should expect to see your most recent journeys here.
ALL: This will display all files on the card in the order they were created.
Please note that the earliest files will normally be EVENT files as these stay on the card longer than NORMAL video files.
At this point, you might be seeing a video recorded several days or weeks ago at the top of the list. Towards the bottom of the list you will start to see your normal everyday driving videos. It is normal to have gaps in these files because of the way the camera overwrites the earliest files recorded.
Below the list of video files you will see the MAP. This will show the location of the vehicle at the time the video was recorded. If the camera was not receiving a GPS signal at the time of recording or if your computer does not have an internet connection then you might not see the MAP.
Within the MAP screen you can use the buttons in the top left to navigate around the MAP and to zoom in or zoom out.
Below the main windows is a G-Force Meter display. The small spot in the centre of this meter represents the G-Force experienced by the camera at the time the video was recorded.
As the vehicle accelerates you would expect to see the spot move towards the bottom of the meter. Braking will show up as the spot moving upwards on the meter. Cornering will send the spot left or right. The more heavy the manoeuvre, the further the spot will travel on the graph.
Just below the main video window is the speed of the vehicle shown be default in MPH. Clicking here will change the display to KPH and vice versa.
