I installed a front and rear dashcam. Plugged it into the 12V outlet under the armrest. The problem is the car does not cut power to it immediately upon exiting and locking the car, or even if I press the power off button on the screen. Sometimes it turns off in 5 minutes, other times like last night where it remained on for 2 hours after I got out of the car, so I have 2 hours of complete darkness recorded. The issue with that is one, it's using up the 12V battery power unnecessarily and two, it overwrites possibly important video footage.
Any of you guys with aftermarket dashcams have a solution?
