    My dash camera (a119v2) is killing my microSD cards... help...

    I have four of the a119 V2 cameras. But, since this is more of a storage card problem, I figured I'd post my issue here. One of my cameras was displaying "card full" and "memory error". I was unable to format the card in the camera or view any files on the camera. I swapped with another card...

    Dash camera saves the day (wreck captured)

    This evening I had a fender bender. As we enter the intersection, I try to stay in my lane, as the guy to my left wants into my lane. I see it happening and honk to remind him to stay in his lane. I drift as far right as I can - I didn't know if someone was in the right lane at that moment...

    Need cheap camera with LIVE HDMI 1080P output

    This isn't for a car. A technically challenged, and severely budget-limited neighbor needs to replace his security camera. A couple of years ago, I installed a left-over dash camera (1/4" tripod mount hole) that had live HDMI output of 1080P. We ran a 25' HDMI cable to a monitor in his...

    Truck pitted and flipped onto railroad tracks

    Wife recorded this today on route to gym. Rainbows are from the CPL filter I hadn't removed yet - it's gone now. Blue Hyundai pulls out from side street, and as most FL drivers do, she refuses to stay in her lane. She pits the truck in the center lane, causing it to roll over, over/through a...

    Wife nearly flattens clueless bicyclist

    This was capture in the first few minutes after starting the car - so GPS hadn't locked yet. Wife was approaching the intersection, which conveniently just turned green as she approached (something that light never does unless there is a car already waiting for the light). Pleasantly...

    Who makes the Pinac360?

    http://pinac360.com/ The website is devoid of any specifications and has only one sample. Has anyone seen this before?

    AV output through USB on 0806?

    The Xaiomi YI camera, despite having a µHDMI port, also supports analog video output through pin 4 (signal) & 5 (ground) on the µUSB port. With the implementation of loop-recording, and now an ash script that will automatically start recording when it's powered on, it looks like they're moving...

    Registrator Viewer + 64GB µSD from 0806: Long preview build time?

    My primary PC is i7-4790 w/32GB of ram, and I'm using an Anker USB3.0 card reader (on a USB 3.0 port). I can get 50mB/s read speeds when copying from the µSD to the PC. The card is a U1/class 10 Sandisk. When I run RV for the first time on a given card, it takes upwards of 5 minutes to...

    Two very close calls w/in 24 hours... Defensive driving saves the day

    Normally I don't take the time to pull videos from my cameras, unless the incident is particularly breathtaking or egregious. Yesterday's lane-changer that nearly side-swiped me almost had me pull the card. But, today, when I had yet another slam-on-the-brakes-or-splat close call, and both...

    Of my nine 0806's, I finally found one with a problem...

    Turns out it's not the camera, but the GPS mount. There are four spring-loaded pins on the base. They're tiny, needle like protrusions that compress inward when the camera is slid onto the mount. When removed, the pins pop back up again. Well, on the 9th unit (forward-facing camera for my...

    Anyone using IP-based cameras for dash cameras?

    Sounds silly, I know, but I'm not talking about a car. My RV is 43' long, and has quite a few blind spots. I've decided to add a dedicated mini-PC (Gigabyte Brix i5 running Blue Iris), and 6 Hikvision 3MP (DS-2CD2332-I 3MP) PoE cameras. They'll be placed at the corners, and dead-center...

    0806 formats in exfat - Android doesn't like that...

    For the first time since having both the Android head unit and 0806, today I attempted to play back recorded segments from the camera by putting the µSD card into the head unit. No dice. Android (AOSP) does not recognize the exfat format. That is something I knew, but since my Samsung Note 4...

    Never underestimate the persuasiveness of a LOUD horn

    This would have NEVER happened with the moped-sounding factory horn on my Toyota. Funny how drivers think that a turn signal means c'mon over. This driver was in the right lane, but behind me. There was no one behind me, so she could have just moved over. Instead, she speeds up and tries to...

    CPL filter is not bi-directional

    No real good way to explain that in the title. When I verified my CPL filters to see if the white tick mark was standardized - that is, at 12 o'clock, they all had the same level of polarization - I became discouraged to find that no matter how I turned the lens, I could not get it to black out...

    Is there a way to change the default filename prefix?

    Probably a long-shot, but with multiple 0806 µSD cards connected to a PC, the file names are identical across all cameras. It would be a god-send to have each camera save each file with a unique prefix. For example, instead of all of them being "ambr00xx.mov", have one camera be...

    360° with four 0806's

    Obviously the closer the subject is to the car, the less likely it is to get captured. But for cars in the lanes in immediately on either side of my vehicle (whether traveling on the road or parked in a parking lot), there's enough overlap to make me happy. Screen grab below has each of the...

    I can't believe how sensitive the g-sensors are!

    I thought it was a fluke to see the g-sensor value showing activity as the camera sat idly in a parked car. But upon closer review, holy smokes this thing is sensitive. In a parking garage, I'm seeing 0.09 units when someone walks past the vehicle. Today, I noticed it even registered when my...

    Neat OTG USB microSD card reader to view videos on smartphone

    I'm probably late to the party, but for those that don't know these things exist, have a look at this: For less than USD5, it provides a microSD card reader for a standard USB port (on a PC) or a micro USB for any smartphone with OTG capability. For phones that don't have a microSD slot (or...

    First file time stamp shows 2006

    So I've had a few days to play with the 0806, and so far, I've found no major glitches. Two things that could use improvement/explanation: 1) The GPS path shown in the Registrator Viewer regularly goes from red to grey (with the corresponding arrow turning into a circle as it plays back)...

    Sandisk: Using their cards in a dash camera voids warranty...

    Maybe this is old news, but I was unaware of it, and have not been able to find any posts drawing attention to that fact: http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk/warranty-and-user-guides/warranty-united-states/
