I'm also a bit worried about it covering what I think is an air vent and tbh I don't like how those mats look from the google pics. Did some googling and cant find any for my car model yet. Guess I will wait for the filter thingy.
But that's the bit that is most visible lol kinda defeats the point of it.
A dashmat probably won't fix his problem. Did you notice how far beyond the bonnet the vent's reflection is? If it can't be covered then it'll always appear on video. And then there's that GPS...No, that's not quite how this works. The goal is to prevent reflections on the windscreen within the FOV in front of your vehicle. Any other extraneous reflections, say from your defroster vent that may still reflect because they are revealed by cut-outs in your dash mat will be confined to the area of your hood (bonnet), not the roadway in front of you and will therefore be irrelevant to the primary documentation you want from a dash cam.

Anyone got any ideas what to do?
This is funny. I had exactly the same problem. Aside from all the discussions, waste of time in my opinion, I added a CPL filter and no further issues. Simple.
I bought a magnet and washer, filed down a washer edge, painted black, and taped a polarizing film to the washer. Two sided tape sticks the magnet to the A119 and the washer clips on. Works great, and very little effort. See my other postings.
I use the CPL all the time now with my A119. No more crazy reflections.
