I noticed with the A119 it had significant problems with distortion because it was close to the glass. It was also pointed down which went through more glass layers as well. Any suggestions or is it just the nature of wedge cameras?they don't alter focus depending what's in front but the GC lens is much closer to the glass so will look different as a result of positioning
The unit beeps at you if there is no SD card present, for about 3 minutes or so and then goes quiet. Don't have a failed SD card to test. Anyway to simulate a bad card?Great overview Yooshaw! Thanks for posting those comparisons.
Does it have voice notifications? Any chance you tested what happens when a SD card is missing or if you have a failed SD card?
Had a chance to look at this, and I do get the snapshots saved in this folder.Are your snapshots saved in the "101photo" folder on your SD card? My is always empty. Everything else works fine. Still can't figure out this bug.
Fortunately my snapshots also save to iPhone which is then saved to iCloud automatically.
Thank you Yooshaw. The reason i want to learn how to download via wifi is that the camera's sd card slot is a very tight fit so extracting the card is difficult. Had to use a scalpel pointed blade to drag it out on the 2 times i've removed it. Initially i thought i had put it in the wrong way. Look forward to your feedback on wifi downloading, which is much appreciated. In turn i will keep trying and may even try using the Apple app version on my wife's ipad mini2.I believe you are correct in where it stores the data. There are no settings I have found in the app to change the directory files are saved in.
I don't have the patience to wait for downloads over wifi, especially when I want the files in my computer and not on my phone. I just take the SD card out and transfer manually. I'll have a look to see how to download over wifi.
I had a go at it this morning and figured it out. It's just like the M6+, tap once on the live video stream, which brings you to a larger view. Tilt the phone to landscape, and tap again to bring a menu up on the left hand side. Click on the "scissors" button. This brings you to where you can download - Techmoan outlines that well in his video at 22:35. From what I can tell, dowloads are limited to 5 minute segments at a time, with no way to stitch together anything longer.Thank you Yooshaw.

Thanks for the tips. On the Chinese forums, it looks like an update is coming out in the next few weeks (supposedly), that seems to address the low saturation. Don't know if it will address anything else, but I'll give it a go if/when it comes out.Maybe the M6+ firmware is more refined (newer) than the Mini2? My time lapse transition gaps are mostly around 6 seconds. The longest is 9 seconds and shortest is 5 seconds. Never seen a 20+ second gap. Again, I think the gap is necessary because it needs time to save the time lapse video before it can start a new normal video.
I've also seen the blocky ghost images stuck in the time-lapsed video but it is rare (maybe 10% of time) and clears up quickly.
A 5 minute download via wifi takes around 4 minutes @ around 1.5Mbps. I found it best to have the car completely off to reduce interference. I use my Vico Power Plus to power the M6+. If car is on, wifi speeds usually drop to around 0.5 Mbps. I assume the car's Bluetooth is the culprit.
When I want to see a video, I don't download anymore (I used to). I find is much easier just to click on a thumbnail and start watching! My M6+ will even automatically play the next video. As long as the speed is around 1.5Mbps, I don't see any buffering. Switch OFF your car usually will increase wifi speed... Sometime, my M6+ reaches 3Mbps speed, hovers around 2Mbps.
Also, I figured out why my 101photo folder on my SD card is always empty. I posted a separate thread to explain the reason for others to find.
*** Can you test if you also have an empty 101photo by testing my theory (Refer to my "Resolved" thread for test procedure)?
*** Did you test night footage through your tinted rear window? Please post some samples. If you can compare against, the SG9665GC, that would be even better! Thanks.
I have it hardwired in using a 3amp buck converter - used this setup with all my cams with no problems to date. I'm trying a different SD card now to rule that out. I tried disabling parking mode, but that takes away the option to select time-lapse (option disappears altogether). Tried un-checking time lapse (only parking guard checked), and all that does is record full motion all the time. How's that any different than the unit just being on? Why call it parking guard? lolAre you using the supplied 2.1 Amp USB?
Also try disabling parking mode (enable time lapse only) so that time lapse doesn't switch over to normal video, to see if the random stop glitch still exists?
