Anyone tried any model of WiFi SD cards with this camera?

There are SD cards with a built-in WiFi module which are able to connect to, for example, your home's WiFi (or establish direct WiFi connection with your smartphone/tablet, regardless of your location) and automatically transfer the files to your PC (or the mobile device). Most known vendor which manufactures them is EyeFi, there's also Toshiba and I believe some other vendor... So, question is - has anyone tried using such card, from any vendor, in Panorama G cams? Would be extremely convenient to transfer the video files without removing the SD card from the cam, especially for people with portable devices which only support microSD and not a full-size SD cards...

And if such cards do not work yet - would it be possible to support them through future camera's firmware updates?

I've used EyeFi in the past with my personal pocket HD camera with good results. I don't have that EyeFi card any more so haven't tested them on the Panorama G yet. I don't see why it wouldn't work though unless the non standard folder structure isn't compatible as Jokiin said.


Regular pocket cameras use the DCIM folder structure

I look forward to more feedback from real world WiFi enabled SD card dashcam users.

especially for people with portable devices which only support microSD and not a full-size SD cards...

Here is one possible option for Android microSD device users:

I've also used one of the EyeFi cards before, the older model... It worked fine with just about every camera. The WiFi transfer speed was pretty slow, though. Haven't tried the new one, I might just buy it some time later and try it out in every device I can.

Well, that would certainly work but it's not very convenient, especially on phones with flaps covering the slot or where card reader is located behind the removable cover...
