    My dash cam 300 will not come on when starting my truck. I have to physically turn it on. Cam 300 will stay on for 5 minutes but then turns off.
    I thought that once turned on , the cam would continue to play until the truck was turned off.
    Aren’t all cams supposed to remain on when the vehicle is started, then off when the vehicle is turned off?
    Please advise…. Thank You….

    1. Hi Michael,
      Yes, the dash cam should stay on.
      According to the manual you can operate the dash cam automatically as well as manually.
      With auto power on/off: It automatically powers on and starts recording when the car is
      on. And stops recording, saves the video and power off when the car is off.

      Manual operation when no car charger is inserted; then you have to manually switch on/off.

      Manual operation would be if the dash cam is not connected to the vehicle’s car cigarette lighter with the car charging cable.
      If however, the dash cam is properly installed and it is not staying on, you may want to check with the manufacturer, as this could be an issue with the product. You may also want to check the settings on the dash cam; not sure why it’s shutting off every five minutes.

      Manufacturer suggestions:
      The cam often shut down or cannot connect to the power supply
      A: The interior design varies from car to car. Please adjust the rotation angel of
      the vehicle power adaptor properly, and ensure the stable link between the power
      supply and machine.
      B: The built-in battery of the machine can only last for 10-15 minutes. When you
      use it, please connect it to the power supply.
      C: Check if there is any damage to the power lead so as to ensure the power
      supply of the machine.
      D: If the cam can’ t be used in the car, try to connect the cam to other power
      source to see whether the power supply of the car cigar lighter is normal

      If these options don’t solve your issue, then you definitely want to liaise with the manufacturer.
      I hope this information helps.
