If your dash cams have Wi-Fi or Bluetooth capabilities that allow you to connect your smartphone directly to the dash cam and transfer and play videos through a dedicated app. Check your user manual for specific instructions on how to connect and play videos wirelessly.

For example, the Mercylion WIFI dashcam will support playing footage from the Mercylion app on the smartphone.
After the dash cam is powered on, the WiFi will be turned on by itself; after the WiFi is turned
on, the dash cam will act as a WiFi hotspot.
① Enter the DVR Menu Press the ‘Wi-Fi connect’ button on the app for connection.
② Default WiFi name: VT5004-**** and the Password: 12345678
The password is required for the first connection, and it is not required for the subsequent connection of the app software.
