Anyone know how to get firmware updates for the Cobra CDR 840? My current version is 0010.2015

I have the exclamation point on top of my SD card icon. I formatted the SD card and tried to push the LOCK/UNLOCK button to no avail. How do I get rid of that icon?

Anyone have luck finding a hardwire power kit for the 840?

Another forum member said the Cobra CDR 840 is a generic Chinese models, this is its closest living relative https://dashcamtalk.com/x3000/

I agree, as it looks just like my 840. But I would not try the firmware without confirming it is correct for my camera.

The one I just bought on 4/23/2016 from Costco is 0010.2015 as well. Not seeing anywhere to get an update either.

Cobra 840 is using a similar casing to the X3000 but is highly unlikely to be using the same internals so I wouldn't try X3000 firmware on it.
I don't think the Cobra 840 has any 'living relatives'. The X3000 family of cams record in 480p or 720p whereas the Cobra 840 is 1080p.

I also don't think there are any firmware updates around. Mine haven't needed a FW update; mostly trouble-free.
