Im using the camera as a Dashcam but would prefer it stays on (for longer than 10 seconds) after the ignition is switched off.
I have tried setting it up in car/dashcam mode and changing Auto power off in main settings (to either 3,5 or 10 minutes).
I have also set it up to record on power on in normal video mode and again checked the Auto power off in the mains settings (changing through either 3,5 or 10 minutes).
On all attempts on switching off the usb the camera powers off after 10 seconds.
I have reset factory settings (a few times)
I am running the latest firmwareFebruary 19, 2019 at 9:46 am #13763Gregor_in_CornwallModerator
Hi, which camera is it you have? I know that the team are working on the firmware update for the olfi black but its been a bit delayed by holidays. I’m sure it will be something that they will be having a look at.March 4, 2019 at 11:08 am #14161BethKeymaster
My reply disappeared!I’ve reported this as a customer request for a firmware fix, to enable you to create a manual dash cam mode by selecting the individual modes. Which camera do you have? The original one.five, the White, or the new Black edition? The only camera this will present an issue for is the White because there is no option to Auto power on viaUSB manually so it would not be possible without changing the operation of Dash cam mode for everyone with the White.

Hi, Im assuming you’ve had some issue with your forum (server?) I replied to this at the time and your initial reply and my reply disappeared.
Its the OneFive 1st Gen (non black version)
I had already done the suggestions from the original (basically setting it up manually).
Basically autopower off setting (where you can get it to stay on for 3, 5 or 10 minutes) doesn’t appear to be working.
That’s with car mode off and setting everything up manually – ive set it up to switch on an record manually but it wont stay on for longer for 10 seconds after the USB is powered off regardless of which settings I have done.
Ive tried re-flashing the camera a couple of times – and I followed your original instructions verbatim
Do you have any links for older firmware I could try?March 4, 2019 at 12:31 pm #14172TritonKeymaster
I’ve been testing it this morning. I’ve requested a firmware change. It may take a few weeks to implement and test the firmware fully but we will enable this for you.
Auto Power Off wouldn’t be the menu function to use. This means that the camera turns itself off with inactivity so save power. For example: if you turn your camera on but don’t do anything, it’ll turn itself off to save power after 3 mins, 5 mins or 10 mins. If your camera is recording, it’s active, so this wont be applicable.
The fix will involve changing how the individual Power On Record and/or Auto On via USB settings will work. Currently, they must be utilising the same rule as Dash cam mode by turning off 10 seconds after power is withdrawn. The developers will just apply a different rule to that function which makes it stay on when power is withdrawn. This will let you set up a bespoke dash cam mode as opposed to using the dash cam function.
I will let you know the progress for implementation!March 4, 2019 at 12:36 pm #14173
Cheers, will keep an eye out for the change 🙂
