I have got two seperate cameras front and rear both Blackvue
They have just released a new model with a very high spec
They are not the cheapest but when i bought my first one they were in the top ten

This is from another thread but is probably of more use here (it's all in reference to the Body Control Module fuse box under the glove box):

F74 to F81 are "Hot at all times"
(to quote Ford's diagrams.)

F85 and F86 are both switched by the IGN ON.

F59 through to F63 are controlled by the "Interior Light Relay" which should mean they're live as soon as you unlock the vehicle (ie. via remote or door handle) and they should switch off around 12 minutes after locking the vehicle or the last door is closed. So you get more footage from first unlocking through to 12 minutes after you leave the vehicle ie. a 12 minute "Parking Mode".

I leave both the camera's on when it is parked up when we are out otherwise it would be sod's law someone would damage the car after the 12mins
I had to use the cctv footage to prove I was not to blame for a accident

I assume you're running a second battery or have some sort of low voltage cut off?

It's too hot where I live to leave a camera running 24/7, I'd end up with a molten lump of plastic. I've had one camera have a meltdown and it was set up to only run with the IGN ON.

I did some checks and F59 - F63 do turn off power at around 12 minutes after the last door closure or vehicle door lock.
