      Yes this is how it is. You can also remove the micro sd card and plug it to your computer. No need for the redundant usb connection. Leave the camera in the car and download the footage from the SD card.

          Answer

          It depends on your vehicle. The power port on some cars has power even when the car is turned off others do not. Our Buick and Blazer both have the power on but my old Chevy truck and GMC Van do not. The battery life on this unit is very short. Maybe 10 minutes at the most.

          Answer

          For the money it's not a bad price. At first I was having trouble getting the suction cup to stay on the windshield. It's stays fine now...but I'd caution a new (actually any) driver to not get all hyper if it falls off. Tell them to keep their eye on the road and pull into a parking lot to reaffix it. I was told I could replace the 8GB microSD card with a 64GB...but none of my 64GB's would format. Other than that.... It's not a bad cam...

          You may want to double check all the settings on the unit.. make sure the SD card is compatible and that it is not defective.The other possibility is the built in Thermal Heat Protection feature. If the unit overheats or battery gets too hot the unit will shut down. This may be true if you live in a hot climate . Good luck !

            Try charging the battery fully before use in vehicle. If not, the battery is not holding a charge and is defective or needs replaced
