    Have you read through the thread titled "BlackVue Wi-Fi 2-Channel DR550GW-2CH" the answer is likely to be in there and its not just a matter of downloading and it will work. Look here for instructions http://car-dvr.info/forum/index.php?topic=257.25

    Hi friends! I've got a problem about this issue. I can't connect to the Blackvue DR550GW-2CH Korean camera via putty.exe,
    What I did?
    1-The camera firmware is 1.019K, I downloaded the 1.014E mod001 folder and copy to the sd card.
    2-Put into the camera the SD Card,
    3-Opened Wi-Fi and saw the IP is 192.168.8.1, tried to connect by laptop computer, but when I click to Connect button, the program gives error message: "network error connection refused", so I couldn't connect to the camera for updating. (I run the putty as an administrator)
    4- What should I do for be able to connect to the camera via putty.exe, and if I can connect camera, and update from 1.014E owerwrite to 1.019K, if I can't owerwrite 1.019K version by 1.014E version, where can I find 1.019E version firmware's mod001 folder, CAN ANYBODY HELP ME? Thanx for all.

    Question for anyone who can help...

    I received my DR500 today and noticed the voice prompts were in an Asian voice which I presume is Korean. I did manage to get the device connected to my iPhone wirelessly. But, while doing searches online on why the prompts were in Korean, I came across this thread. I ordered my camera via Amazon. Doing these searches, I learned that some Korean sellers on sites like Amazon are not authorized sellers and have been selling these Korean versions to us westerners.

    Anywho, I've read through these threads and see there was a possible way to get my camera to English. Of course, these threads are a couple years old and not sure if this is still a possibility for me.

    Question:

    These are the versions on my camera:

    [firmware]
    version = 2.004
    model = 500GW
    language = Korea
    [software]
    version = 2.38
    model = 500GW
    language = Korea
    [config]
    version = 1.060
    model = 500GW

    Can I still use the method described at the beginning of this thread to get my camera to English? Or, is there a more recent way to accomplish this?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    V-
