    VIOFO А119V3 FIRMWARE

    It works reasonably fine where I live, reading over 50% of signs. The ones it doesn't read is when I'm driving toward the sun (over saturation) or at night. I'm in Australia.

    Upgrading from A119 to A119 V3

    Try using it without the CPL filter. I had a problem with my rear A119S due to the interaction between the CPL and the tinting on my rear glass. It was rectified by removing the filter.

    Oh, okay, thanks. It's a shame there are no release notes. Cheers

    VIOFO А119V3 FIRMWARE

    Did a very quick test, still not happy with sharpness of licence plates using 30fps 1440p, so going to test 60fps 1440p tomorrow.

    VIOFO А119V3 FIRMWARE

    Thanks. Just took it 2.6T for a quick test around the suburb. I like the speed sign voice notification, I notice it doesn't repeat the same speed if the speed sign is the same, it only notifies you when there is a change up or down, nice. There are no stop lights in my area so I was unable to...

    VIOFO А119V3 FIRMWARE

    Thank you for a some very good information. So, 3rd times a charm. I downloaded the modded firmware via your link, used the settings guide (only deviated for "Parking Recording Duration: 6hrs", "Record Audio: ON" and "Screen Saver: 15sec". Happy to report that all is well and parking mode is...

    VIOFO А119V3 FIRMWARE

    Yes, stock 2.5 was working fine with parking mode. I was using TS codec as recommended, but now gone back to mp4. It's no big issue for me. I had another official firmware in the past (I can't remember which one, I think it was 2.0) which also gave me problems so I just waited until a newer one...

    VIOFO А119V3 FIRMWARE

    As said previously all the settings were the same as previous firmware versions which I have been using successfully. The power hasn't changed as I'm using the official Viofo HK3. It could be anything, I just can't be arsed chasing it down when 2.4 works perfectly using the same settings/power...

    VIOFO А119V3 FIRMWARE

    I wish I had such luck, but no joy. Reinstalled twice, did factory default, applied the same settings I have used for years but got the same results, only worked under high sensitivity, but I wasn't prepared to have it running non-stop. I'll try the next iteration of modded firmware in the...

    VIOFO А119V3 FIRMWARE

    I gave this VVS Mod V2.5 20210715 a go but I had to revert back to regular Viofo 2.4. The 2.5 mod worked well whilst driving however it failed to record whilst parked (I am using the official HK3 which has always worked perfectly for over a year with parking mode). I tried many iterations of...

    New A119V3 V2.5 Firmware announced in VIOFO Blog

    Is there a video resolution setting that utilises the maximum sensor area WITHOUT any interpolation or upscaling? Now that's something I would like to see.

    Random beeping

    If not the memory card, then perhaps check your G force sensor setting, if set to high sensitivity small bumps could trigger it

    VIOFO A119 V3

    Thanks for the links. Updated to 2.1 and all seems well at night. Running 1440p@60Hz and its the first time I've been able to read oncoming plates @ 50 kph. No idea about day footage yet as it's night here.

    VIOFO A119 V3

    Just need to add something to possibly help. I noticed with my HK3 when set to 12.2v that if I went shopping with the parking mode on, and then returned to the car to offload the shopping which took a minute or so, and then decided to do a little more shopping and locking the car again, that...

    VIOFO A119 V3

    Don't forget the actual HK3 unit itself is also adding to the overall drain.

    VIOFO A119 V3

    I also thought that the camera/gps would consume zero through the HK3, however I noticed that it still provides power to maintain a GPS satellite lock so that when the A119 V3 powers up when the ignition key is turned on it immediately provides coordinates and speed. however if you physically...

    VIOFO A119 V3

    I installed a Bluetooth battery monitor in my car and watched what the GPS/HK3 was doing. With the HK3 physically switched off, my battery wouldn't waiver much from about 12.7 volts in the morning. However with the GPS/HK3 switched on I regularly found that overnight the battery would be much...
