It has a button at the plug every time you shut off the car you can push the button and it shuts off. Best quality video too.
I actually have that camera too and am also satisfied with it. Amazon carries it now too - I think its a much better option than eBay (I got mine from eBay - seller is in China)
I had mine hardwired, so that it doesn't waste a power source.
