Please report the following (3) issues to the manufacturer :

ISSUE 1:

The A119 Dashcam completely locks up and will no longer record at 1920x1080P 60fps,

FYI - After this happens the A119 can only be UN-locked and functional again after (1) RE-formatting the card in Windows, and then (2) using the GUI format program that you have at

http://support.spytecinc.com/ help/gui-format-program

I am using a Lexar 633X 64gb SD card

NOTE: Even if the card is 64GB, the GUI format has to be done at 32GB ( Not at 64 GB ) otherwise the Dashcam will still be locked.

ISSUE 2:

The A119 Dashcam has a really bad flicker issue when trying to record at 2304x1296P 30fps

I also saw that someone else had this same issue on YouTube as well.


ISSUE 3:

I am using the "DashCam Viewer" software and only the video gets played.
https://dashcamviewer.com/

BUT none of the GPS info is being read by the software.

===================

Here is a YouTube video of the A119 ( w/GPS) being successfully used and demonstrated with the "DashCam Viewer" software.

============================== ======
MY SETTINGS and HARDWARE INFO :

I am using a Lexar 633X 64gb SD card
Resolution is " 2560 x 1440P 30fps "
Exposure Value is " -1/3 "
Wide Dynamic Range is " On " ( might turn this to "off" for better nighttime vision )
Frequency is " 60HZ "

RESOLVED fo DASH CAM VIEWER

I went to http://www.viofo.com/home/30-a119-1080p-60fps-dash-cam.html a

Clicked on the " Support Tab "

1. Clicked on the "Download" link for the latest firmware ( A119.20160829.V1.1 ) from August 28, 2016.

2. Unzip the file using available unzip programs, e.g. WinZip or 7-Zip

3. Open the file and copy the .bin file directly onto the MicroSD card root file(use a 32GB maximum card, FAT32 format.)

4. Insert the MicroSD card into the cam and power it on via a 5V/1A power source, e.g. cigarette lighter or power bank, it will start upgrade automatically.

5. While upgrading the front REC red LED starts blinking(the light blinking slowly at the beginning, then blinking quickly), after the light stop blinking, it means upgrade is finished, the firmware will be deleted automatically after upgrade.

6. You will need to RE-configure your dashcam settings since they will be lost during the upgrade



====================

The next part is to download and install DashCam viewer from https://dashcamviewer.com/

I installed :

Current Version: v2.2.0
Release Date: September 4, 2016

You can read the Version Changelog by going to https://dashcamviewer.com/blog/ or https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/25150850/history.pdf

You can also download the User Manual at https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/25150850/Dashcam Viewer Users Manual.pdf

You can see a Video Tutorial at


============

FYI -


Windows Requirements:

Windows 10 is recommended but Dashcam Viewer might still run on earlier OS’s (Windows 7 and 8). 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available.

Low-end Windows PCs with poor video performance and limited screen resolution are not recommended.

FYI -


Also there are times where IF your device did not start logging the GPS early into the movie, it might not display in the Dashcam Viewer software.

This might also happen if you are playing multiple movies sequentially.

FYI -


Interestingly, even though my A119 had the current firmware installed from the factory , I had to download and install the exact same version to get it to work with the DashCam viewer software.


=============

If you want to UN-install the Dashcam Viewer software...


Windows:


    • Right-click on the Dashcam Viewer icon on the Desktop
    • Select "Open file location" from the menu.
    • In the Dashcam Viewer folder, select and run "unins000.exe"
    • Dashcam Viewer will be removed from your system.

Mac OS X:

    • Open your Applications folder.
    • Select the Dashcam Viewer application and drag it to the trash
    • Dashcam Viewer is now removed from your system
================

Let me know if this helped.

It may be your power adapter and or cord. I had flickering issues in car only.discovered that the cable I had used previously was thin 26/28AWG cord. When I replaced it with the one that came with the cam...a 22AWG cable, flickering and power issues and whine in audio...have seemed to go away.
