I checked the shooting with different camera tilt, and it turned out that our usual settings, where 30% of the sky, are not suitable for B2W. The cameras need to be positioned vertically, 50% of the sky is obtained, but in this case the front camera shoots with the correct exposure (it seems to me that this is provided for in the exposure metering table) and the interior camera shoots the interior, not the ceiling.
At the beginning of the video (firmware B2W-0726-E-02), the front camera is omitted below (as we are used to on other dashcams), and then I moved it to the correct position

as well as the view from the rear camera in the cabin

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I think that makes sense given the design of the camera, if you tilted the camera so the front was lower the rear camera aim would be poor, a 50/50 split seems more logical

Quite a few...

Yes, it seems that the B2W metering is setup for 50/50 sky/ground. I've never noticed a problem with the exposure on the B2W.

@estore009 Is it possible to mute all sounds on the B2W, including the startup sound?
