Hi I'm not an expert but the speed is superimposed over the image so no setting for it , I don't have any issue like that so I suppose is a problem with the unit

it seems setting for driver who like to hide speed while driving too fast. scroll down to second picture. up to 10km/h its okspeed.jpg speed1.jpg speed1.jpg or so. at some point is good, just need custom setting to be there for everyone
if watching file using supplied dashcam player speed and gps information is displayed OK.

Are you referring to the DAB201 or DAB202?

Try the firmware version 2287. I have seen that with a firmware version I had. Version 2287 can be found here https://cloud.mail.ru/public/Jy9g/MB7cshetu

I have been using it for a week or so and it seems fine.

Word of caution, I believe the default language is Russian so you will need to know how to go through the menu in Russian to select your language of choice. Go through your current menu setup so you know where it's located.

Good luck.

Hmmm, not familiar with that one. I can't say the firmware version I mentioned would work or not. I would try and find one that is made for that model before trying the 2287 one.

Wait, I take that back. I should have looked at the picture you linked to first. That's the DAB201. Firmware 2287 should work.

It's easy, just copy the unzipped file on the root of the SD card, start the camera it will ask if you want to update chose yes.
Be sure to delete those files after the FW is installed, I power off the camera after the update is finish and delete the files from the SD, then all was OK

Simply copy the bin file and paste it onto your microSD card. With the camera off, insert the card and then turn camera on. It will ask you if you want to install new firmware. Click OK. I think it then asks you to reboot or something, say OK. The camera will shut down. Now remove the SD card and either insert another card or remove the bin file from the card you just used and put it back into the camera. Restart camera. If you don't remove bin file and use the same SD card, it will ask you to reformat again.

Blackview player will show your gps data, but I don't find the video quality to be all that great. Someone has also used Datakam for Macs.

I believe version 1.19 is the latest Blackview player version. I think I have the download link for it. I'll look for it and post it when I find it.
