I set the parking mode to 50 minutes. Why even with the engine turned off and without power, the camera also records 24 hours later, even with the user the noise of the truck that collects the garbage ??? This is a wonderful feature ... set to 50 minutes and still works after 24 hours.

That's the battery back up working or possibly your 12v socket is powered constantly even with ignition off.
The 50 minute parking feature is telling the camera to go into parking mode after 50 minutes of no power. But due to your power source (12v lighter or whatever the dash cam is plugged into) being powered constantly, the camera wont go into parking mode and therefore continuously records, this will eventually have an effect on your car battery.

My suggestion is to hardwire the camera with a 3 wire kit.
  • This will save your car battery in the long run
  • extend the life of the sd card, as its not constantly writing and erasing
