Taken from the VIOFO website:

How to update:

Please do the following to upgrade the dash cam

The firmware will be automatically deleted from Micro SD card after upgrade completed.
  1. Use max. 32GB card formatted by camera or on computer as FAT32
  2. Insert card in camera and connect it to computer using USB cable
  3. Copy the FWA119S.bin on the root of the card
  4. After FWA119S.bin is copied to the card disconnect the camera from computer
  5. Reconnect the camera to your computer and wait few seconds until the camera restart.
The front red LED will be blinking while upgrading

Is the name of the firmware file (FWA119S.bin) hard-coded into the camera's internal BIOS/flash update utility? If not, I would love to see some version numbers included in the names of the .bin files. If it is hard-coded, then oh well, nevermind.

Thank you for the info and help. I'm doing mine this weekend. I guess one you move forward, you can't revert back.

it's hard coded, can't dynamically update the names each time

This file is 1mb smaller than the one (previous version?) on the Viofo website. Code cleanup or feature removal? :D

I have been waiting for this, thanks :)

Edit: untried the IQ, as yet, but it hasn't fixed a little issue I had with the camera sometimes loading the viofo and hanging on the logo some times on random start up.
(I have to keep an eye when I start the car to ensure it moves to whats filming before moving off).
I know because I swapped my 64gb card in after updating my firmware on the 32gb one and it hung up while powered from the charger !

A119S, also run a uniden r-3 RD
Just updated my 119s, I was not having any problems but I guess newer firmware is better.

hang during boot is generally a memory card issue, what cards, how old, have you tested them for errors etc?

Можно сделать битрейт постоянным?, Увеличить до 20. 28. 36. с выбором в меню. ?

technically possible, they probably have other things to work on before getting to adding a feature like this, doesn't hurt to ask though
