The unit is hot, but not abnormally so. My Vico read 118F when I got back in the car at the end of the day. Darn it, I forgot to bring my IR thermometer today, was going to check.how is the temperature?
I have a Vico also, but set the cut off temp higher than normal to test the Mini2 out. I normally have it cut off at 119F (close to 50C), but have it at 131F for testing purposes. I'd like to believe the issues are heat related, but the blocking/artifacts happen almost immediately after parking and it going into time lapse mode. The shutting off/turning on problem does seem to happen later during the recording cycle, suggesting that is heat related. However...@jokiin that make sense. Time lapse usually occurs when the car is parked with windows closed, baking in the hot sun.
I set my Vico Power Plus to shutoff power when temp is over 50°C. On a hot day, it'll only take around 1 hour! Normally, when I come back my time lapse has already stopped due to my preset temp cutoff. Maybe that's why I haven't noticed the glitch with my M6+.
@Yooshaw Are you forcing your Mini2 to record in high temp?
I did a 2 hour test last night with a new SD card in the garage, and that had positive results. I got no blocking/artifacts at all. My car is out in the parking lot now with a real test in the heat and sun.
