This mode changes the default VG power settings to 3 hours after engine shutoff.
By default, the Samsara Vehicle Gateway uses a small amount of vehicle battery when idle. This is the recommended setting for most vehicles. Vehicle Battery Conservation Mode further reduces consumption of the vehicle battery by the Gateway when the vehicle is not in use, and is intended for vehicles that are subject to battery drain under default settings.
When in Vehicle Battery Conservation Mode, Gateway functionality including WiFi hotspot connectivity and camera video retrieval will not be available. The Gateway will wake when vehicle motion resumes, resulting in reduced GPS tracking accuracy at the beginning of a trip.
Battery Conservation Mode can be enabled by the following Settings > General > Vehicle Battery Conservation Mode
