Time and Date are set using the LCD screen and button controls of this camera. Fist, make sure that Date and Time display is enabled by pressing the round red button on the top of the unit to turn recording off (do this only is currently recording). Then press the Menu button. Then press the Down button three times until "Time Stamp" is selected. Press the round red button on the top of the unit to access a submenu, then press the Down button until "Date&Time" is selected. Then press the round Red button on the top of the unit. Then press the Menu button, and then press the Down button maybe seven times until "Date Input" is highlighted. Then press the round Red button on the top of the unit to access a submenu. Press the Down button to highlight "Set", then press the round Red button at the top of the unit. You will see that "YYYY / MM / DD" is highlighted. Press the round red button once to highlight the year on the next second line. Press the UP or DOWN buttons until the correct year is set. Then press the round Red button to select the month. Use UP or DOWN buttons again until the desired month is shown, and then the round Red button. Same for day of the month. The hour will be selected. Remember to use 24-hour time for the hour! Use UP and DOWN buttons to select 1-24 for the hour, then press the round Red button to select the minute. Continue with the UP, DOWN, and round Red button for minute and second until you are back at the menu screen. Press the Menu button again, and you can verify that the correct time is shown on the bottom right corner of the LCD display! If this is helpful, then please write a short two-word "Thank You" in reply. It took me a couple of hours of researching on the internet before I could put the pieces together to understand this procedure! Your reply will let me know if anyone reads these things!

Turn unit on. Press MENU until you see LANGUAGE on second item. Use DOWN key to high lite LANGUAGE. Use the RECORD or RED button to select SETUP. Then simply select ENGLISH. Remember the items at the very bottom of the screen denote the functions of the two buttons on camera body. Not the screen buttons. Hope this helps.

When you plug it in, it turns on and starts recording automaticaly. There is a button to pause recording if you want. When you unplug it, it turns off in a little while or you can just press the on/off button to turn it off manually

These cameras are fixed focus. I would return it and spend a little more money and get a decent quality DashCam that works like the G1W (Amazon ASIN:B00FONBG1A)Check out DashCamTalk for more information.

You have to use the car (cigarette lighter plug) charging cable to charge and record video at the same time. Once this charging cable is connected to car (with ignition on) and camcorder, the recording started automatically by default. If you use the computer USB cable to charge by connecting to the computer, your dash board camcorder is in the thumb drive mode which only allows you to retrieve video files to your computer.

There is one battery it is a cell phone BL-5C. you can get about 45 minutes to a hour of recording with the one that comes with it. You can hard wire it to your fuse box, or your car battery make sure to use a fuse.

No, I wouldn`t plan on any all night recording with this camera. I get about an hour of decent quality video with a 16 Gig disk. You may be able to set it to record longer, but you wouldn`t be happy with the video quality. If you want long term recording, get a camera that can record to your computers hard drive. This inexpensive cam will not do that.

There is an Auto Rec option in the app menu. Don't get this confused with the motion activated record.
