Just got my G1W-S yesterday and, on the maiden voyage, noticed that the display turned off after about one minute, while the blue LED continued to flash slowly. Is there a way to keep the display on? Is it always recording, even if the display goes dark? I see no mention of this in the manual or Youtube videos. Thanks.

When the blue LED is flashing it is recording, even withe the LCD screen darkened. You'll find the "Sceensaver" settings in the cam menu- I set mine at 15 seconds but I forget what the options are. The cam will run hotter with the screen on, plus in many places it's not legal to have the screen turned on while driving if the driver can see it. All you really need the screen for is to watch the boot sequence goes OK and to access the menu when you change settings. It shouldn't hurt anything leaving it on though.
