    fed up with buying replacement SD cards

    I keep having a persistent problem where the card is generating a lot of protected files (I guess there's a lot of potholes in Lincolnshire).. however, every couple of weeks I use the Format Card facility on the 512GW to clear it down - as it's virtually impossible to clear protected files using...

    Problems since adding rear cam / hoping can be fixed by a firmware release

    Hello all - Having a few reliability issues I'm hoping someone can give advice on. I'm using the 512GW with the attached rear cam for the past 4 months. Originally when I only had the front cam it was working 'OK' - not amazing (battery life is poor, sometimes it won't automatically start...

    GPS causing camera to record when parked.

    I’ve noticed that my camera is recording as though vehicle is moving even though it’s parked up outside my house because the gps signal is making out it’s moving at 1-3mph every so often. Is there a fix for this or anyway to improve gps reception, even though I’m using the gps powered windshield...

    Do you need to disconnect the powered mount from the car when parked with or without the camera attached, is battery drainage/safety an issue?

    Hi Guys I'm sure it has been asked many times, in many different ways. I got the 512GW for Christmas and my question surrounds leaving the camera in the car. So, The powered mount is plugged into my cigarette lighter via the car power cable, not hard wired. I notice that this seems to stay...

    Parking Mode General + Permanent Live vs. Switched

    Hi all, been lurking around this forum for the last week or so since receiving a 512GW as a gift. I've been having a play with the device to figure out what the different settings do, test-fitted the front camera in a few different places, picked up a 512GWRC to go with it and am now eagerly...

    Constant Parking Mode Recording

    Since the latest upgrade R21 my 512gw is sucking the battery dry. I’ve had parking mode on since I bought it in Dec 2017 on a 5 min loop and all was fine but since the upgrade it’s randomly coming on 4-5 times when there is nothing about or near the car only other thing different is I now run a...

    Connect my 512GW to PC via Wi-Fi, instead of USB.

    Hello DashCam users Can someone please tell me how to connect my 512GW to my PC via Wi-Fi. I managed to get the camera into Wi-Fi mode. Then I was OK on my PC detecting and connecting to the camera with the given password. I was then expecting to see the camera’s files on my PC in File...
