It gets better! Having read the instructions, I understand less than I did before.
(8) is at least comprehensible (though singularly unenlightening) but it rather goes downhill after that. (13) is pure poetry…
For “horn” read “loudspeaker” perhaps… “this sign comes on when the thing is making a noise” or “this is where the noise comes out of”.
The only thing that springs to mind is ‘convalescent home’ after a bad day on Google Translate.
11 is the reset hole - you stick a pin in it to restart the device. That’s easy.
…in the event of a crash, according to a later instruction.
Which, given that the device in question is a dash / reversing camera*, adds whole new layers of ambiguity
I’m still baffled by “do not leak seconds”
*Henses are difficult to see when reversing
My best guess is that you don’t lose the last few seconds of recording when the power goes off, i.e. there’s a big enough capacitor to finish writing the memory to non-volatile storage.
It’s a thought, but it’s rechargeable…
I suppose the translation could have been worse:
“Do not leak Number 2s…”
But it still shuts down automatically when you disconnect vehicle power, according to that same page.
I have a feeling this is going to be one of those cases where you work out what does what when you plug it in. The instructions are worse than useless
An approach which has never led to:
a) grinding noises and shattered plastic housing;
b) smoking ruins;
c) embarrassing bundles;
d) smoking ruins; and
e) recriminations plus any combination of a to d but normally involving smoking ruins.
That prolly describes me ATM, Gus… .
Ah, but were you also knocked abaht a bit by Cromwell?
No? Delighted and relieved to hear it, Dahlink.
? There doesn’t seem to be a ‘ruin’ emoji so have a and subtract the ‘B’…
The inaugural meeting of the SSG will take place as soon as you have gathered yerself and a few pins, Darling…
