Ireland is not hot at all, mostly mild weather, hens many locals fly to other hot countries, as well as Spani ( north, sounth, etc )

Anyway, - your complaint is burning lens , - what do you mean ?

The camera heats up a lot but the burning lens, it's not normal, I've never seen anything like it.
I have lowered the resolution but still the same.

Burning lens, - under fire, melted, or just lens surface is too hot ?, what do you mean under burning lens ?
I have aw1 and never had problem like you describe.

My daily driving was max 1h continuously. Within this period all worked fine. Maybe its a climate difference.
Can you try testing recording inside home for 1h if it will give same heating issue or not.

Usually it takes 2-3 work days to replay from official Cowon rep.
Try to write to the seller you bought it from.

I can see that overall he has a good feedback, however he is a small seller. Probably a private person who gets local grey market stock without authorised warranty service support ( its just my assumptions ).
How long ago you paid ?
Did you use a PayPal funds or Paypal credit card payment ?

This purchase was a disaster, the Spanish customs confiscated the dashcam 60 € fee.
I am within Paypal, I can make a claim, I think it will be the only solution. I paid with funds from my account.
I got it because I like the camera and the recording is wonderful.

Yeah, this model deserves attention. From functionality point of view I must say it is one of the most advanced from all wifi ones I had. Day and night quality is fair. Maybe only low bit-rate would puts it down compare to some other high-end dashcams but overall price vs value ( functions ) I think is fair.

If you paid using PP finds you can make claim up to 45 days. I paid via PP using a credit card funds then 60-90 days depending on your credit card company policy.
Hope you can sort out this quickly.

I thought changing the settings might solve the problem.
Thanks for everything, it's been a pleasure talking to you.
