24 days running on your car battery or external battery or what? I'm assuming this is on Parking Mode: Impact Only?

it would be, they have a deep sleep mode that uses very little power, you miss what initially sets it off though so how useful that is in reality is debatable
But I believe with the radar accessory it has a buffer which records before the impact?

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
not sure about the radar, very mixed results from those that have used them, I say used rather than using because it seems after trying them people have been returning them

Yes the 24 days is based on using the iVolt battery pack. You are also correct the camera does stop recording but if an impact is detected it will start recording within 1 second of the impact. I don't think we have had a single Radar returned to us but we do try and explain it's use as much as possible. I can imagine if people didn't understand how it's supposed to work it could cause some returns....
