    Hello John, When installing the Rear View Camera ensure the Thinkware Logo is facing towards the inside of the vehicle. This will ensure the image is not upside down. The default WIFi password is “123456789” which is also listed in the User Manual and Quick Start Guide in the box with the Dash Cam!
