Dash Cam Reviews – How to use FALCON ZERO F360

Dash Cam Reviews -This truly is a simple guide to your FALCON ZERO F360 dash cam.

We have recently made some dash cam reviews about Falcon Zero F360, and recieved some questions about how to maneuver its menu setings as there are a handful of different modes that you can choose among them based on your situation.
Unlike some other dash cams that needs to log into computers or smart phones to go through various settings, you can directly do it on dash cam FALCON ZERO F360.
We would like to go through several most commonly used functions that you might need to select during your time using the car camcorder.

As a reminder, once you start your engine, the dashboard camera will start instantly and you would know it when you see the green light flash. Once you decide to change anything, you need to pause the video recording and the green light stops flashing.
Another thing to remember is that if you want to choose anything, press MENU/REC button first, the rest will do as followed. Or when you want to resume recording, press back to MENU again. MENU button simply functions as OK button to help you select a setting

[Notes: You may need to strongly press the button to make it work even though you hear a peep sound]

1. Change camera views

As you know, there are 2 channels supported for this dash cam: in front and back. So sometimes, you would like to record only one for a clearer look. All you need to do is to only short press the POWER button and the view may change as desired. And then, press back to MENU to resume recording.

Firstly, you need to press and hold the MODE button until an icon of moon and stars appears on the upper left screen side. If you want to go back to normal mode, simply press and hold MODE again.

Night Vision: the camera supports with 4 infrared LEDs to help you better view inside your car during the night time. Once you press and hold the MODE button, its LEDs around camera lens will turn on.

3. Review Photos and/or Videos


Unlike changing to Night mode, you only need to press MODE button but not hold it. Press the MODE button for several times until you see a list of images to review and look back. Afterwards, press UP and/or DOWN button to select the desired image, then you press the MENU button to view. Move UP and DOWN to see pictures, and press MODE to go back to full list of photos. To record again, simply press MODE until you see the icon of video camera.
To view videos is similar to how you manage the Photo Viewing. However, this time, you look for video clips. Then, it functions exactly the same as above.

4. Other dashboard camera Setings

Initially, you need to press and hold MENU button twice. Then, you can select different settings as below:
Playback: In standby mode of your dash cam, you need to press the MODE button once only to playback your photos, while twice to playback your videos. Press MENU button to view photos or play videos.
Night Vision: Once you press and hold the MODE button, its LEDs around camera lens will turn on.
Zoom: press UP button as zooming in and DOWN button as zooming out.
Loop Recording: there are 3 options for you to choose: 2 minutes, 5 mins, 10 mins or continuously (OFF)
Audio Recording: you can turn it on or off.
White Balance: also a few options are offered here for you such as Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, etc.
There are also choices for this camera such as enabling its Sound, making your customed Languages, and adjusting your Date/Time like other dash cams.

Above is the list of menu options you can choose within the FALCON ZERO F360 dash cam. If you have any other question, we’re glad to help.

The Falcon Zero F360 is an awesome unit. It does not require you to lose any visibility and because it is attached to the rear view mirror you get a great unobstructed view of everything.

    Alton - July 13, 2016

    Yes, that’s what I like the most about Falcon Zero F360. It’s such an innovative design!

First time I hear about this kind of stuff! Sounds great to record moments for camping or hiking trips. The explanation of the functions is pretty clear and easy to understand. If I ever decide to try this tool I will definitely revisit this page.

    We’re more than happy to hear that you’ve found it helpful. And thanks for trusting our page for your next revisit!

Do I need any skills to install the Falcon Zero F360? I love the loop recording that it does up to 10 mins continuously.

    Alton - July 14, 2016

    Thanks for your question! Actually no, Falcon Zero F360 is a very user-friendly dash cam. Once you attach it into the rear view mirror and press the On/Off Button, it will turn on. And Loop Recording Function is really helpful when you keep recording for a long time.

Does the green light stay ON all the time? Seems it would be overwhelming at night??
If the loop mode is off, how long will it record before card is full??
I’m a newbie:)

    Alton - July 1, 2017

    Hi Craig, thank you so much for your comment. I think the light won’t be on all night. For the memory space, it all depends on your SD card and also the quality of videos. For instance, if you record a video of 1080P with 16GB card, you can record up to 30 hours. I hope my answer helps!

is there a way to quickly save a file from getting recorded over?? i’m an uber driver, sometimes driving a long shift before i can back it up. but if an incident happens i want to protect the file from getting deleted later in the shift. knowhatimean?

    Alton - September 13, 2017

    Hi Tommy, did you also get a Falcon 360? If so, unfortunately it does not have sensor or button to lock the video. I would suggest you remove your SD Card, or use another card. If you like Falcon, their TOUCH dash cam is pretty good. Or you can use Rexing V1P because they have Emergency lock. Hope this can help! Cheers,

I just set up my falcon 360, before was showing me the interior and the exterior camera on the screen and now it’s only showing me the exterior facing camera. I cannot get it to flip back to the interior camera. Any idea how?

    Alton - September 13, 2017

    Hi Nikki, have you tried short pressing the POWER button?

Scott - October 11, 2017

I have the Falcon zero 360. I love this camera. However I drive a minivan and the attached IR lights aren’t bright enough to illuminate the interior of my van, do you have any suggestions for add on IR lights?

    Alton - November 9, 2017

    Mine works okay even without the IR lights! SO I don’t really use any additional IR lights. But if you want, I think you can still get 48 LED IR Light online, try to hide it behind the console. You can power it using 5mm-to-USB.
