Hi, a newbie here would be grateful for any advice.
I have a new head unit for my car running Android 8.1. The head unit has a USB input for an external dashcam. My issue is that the dashcam is not recognised by the head unit on startup. After some tinkering I have noticed that the dashcam is recognised and works if I disconnect it and reconnect when the head unit is on. The problem seems to be that the dashcam gets power from the unit immediately although the head unit takes approx. 45 seconds to initiate. It seems the dashcam is only recognised by the head unit if it starts up after the head unit. Is there any software settings or hardware mods that could be used to delay the USB device receiving power until the head unit is up and running.
