On other models of G1w (I know they're not often viofo versions) you can protect a file from overwrite by pressing the Menu button on the top. This feature is missing from the G1w-s but it's a feature I'd prefer to have, as opposed to slapping the camera to trigger the G-sensor!

Will it be possible to add this feature in a future firmware update?

This is already supported in new firmware, we will release soon on our official site.

VIOFO, when will that new firmware be released? Will it also give the option to change to MPH for GPS?

I believe they said it would in a different post.

Viofo's Romanian site has a newer version than what came with my recently-bought cam (G1WS_V1.1_0119 vs G1WS_V1.0_1228). It works fine, but I'm not sure what the differences are, if any.

The link on their site isn't "clickable" for me unfortunately. New improvements are apparently as my title suggests, and possibly gps speed showing mph instead of just kph?

Managed it, had browser issues :D

@viofo is the Romanian version legitimate and safe?

Any idea when? The hardware is great but the firmware is lacking some pretty basic features right now.
