Already a few threads on this. Search function isn't the greatest on the forum but it's not hard to find some dash cam threads.

No external batt. it's hardwired in the passenger foot well. I have it run in continuous mode thats when the car ignition starts it runs real time and I can watch it live on my iPhone. And while parked it runs on low power mode with a timelapse and accident sensitivity to alert and store.

The cool thing about the Thinkware is that you can adjust for it to shutoff if the batt. starts to drain below a certain voltage. I dont foresee that happening with a new car/batt. But every time I start the car I also get a notification on my Escort radar what the voltage is so I have no concerns there.
