    Firmware update.

    I’m currently on firmware v1.00.09 and I’ve noticed that when connecting via WiFi my continuous recordings are there in sequence, but my manual recordings have stopped since February 2020. Also, when I first connect to the dash cam I get a pop up on my iPhone saying that the latest firmware has...

    Motion Detection Issues

    We have chosen the lowest sensitivity setting for Motion detections, yet leaves slowly blowing in a tree 10 metres away in the rear camera are setting it off or a bird quickly flying past 20 metres away. This means the motion detection is going off several times per minute. It does not seem to...

However, I am unfamiliar with what is worth the money and what is not and what brands to look for and what to avoid :( I'm looking to spend around £100-£150 for a dash cam, £150 if it is of a very good quality. Ideally I just want...

    Will this setup work ? Looking to buying an A119 V3

    Hello, I've never had a dashcam before and I would like to buy one and hardwire it to my car. Where I live (France) dashcams aren't illegal but very rarely used.

    Need a budget WiFi + GPS dashcam

    Have a budget of around $100 for a WiFi+GPS 1080p dashcam. Just need good video quality day and night, decent firmware support and don't need a screen. Infact I would prefer one without a screen. Have been looking at this: I like it only because it looks good IMO, but I've been suggested on...

    Help! TaoTronics TT-CD05 pin question

    I cannot for the life of me figure out how to secure the pin on this dash cam. I've googled a few installation videos, but they all seem to jump from unboxing to road testing. The little washer (I guess) doesn't screw/secure/tighten onto the pin. It just rests on it. It easily falls off, which...

    "Popular Dash Cams" or "Popular Dash Cam Makers"???

    Just happened to notice that under Forums > Popular Dash Cams > BlackVue, is a forum for "Power Magic Pro". Since PMP is not a dash cam, apparently there is a consensus of sorts -even if tacit- that even though PMP is not a dash cam, since it's made by BlackView, it's OK for it to be placed...
