Here's the first one.

The EVA Foam is to prevent video/audio noise. The curvature of the glass will slowly pull the edges of the plastic mount. A small gap will develop over time. The EVA Foam fills this gap so you can enjoy stable video, and rattle free audio recordings.


All new VIOFO A119 include EVA pads in the box, if you need some search Amazon for A119EVA or B072DS2DW9

EVA Foam on the way! (no problem, thanks for letting us know you need some) The very first small batch of V2's were missing EVA Foam but all shipping A119/A119S shipping via OCD Tronic as of today are V2 with EVA Foam.

Used the video today to install it on the unit that arrived today. There was no instructions in the package it came with.

I have question about your video.When you applied EVA foam pad you blocked/covered entire row of these little holes,which are I suppose for ventilation(heat to go out),is dashcam gonna heat more with EVA foam pad or not?I am not owner of A119 or A119C,maybe in the future,but I am just curious.

I wouldn't worry about it, there are plenty of holes still open all around the camera sides.

I got the foam pads from OCD Tronic and installed them today. The image is much more stable, and although it might be my imagination, it seems quieter too. Hard to imagine that such a simple thing can make such a big difference.

I just noticed a negative review about the A119EVA foam pad listing on Amazon.

Customer:
"Before installing the pad I checked out a You tube video concerning its installation. The first step, it was stated, was to properly position the thinnest side of the pad onto the camera. How do I determine the thinnest part of a 0.5 mm pad? Must I distinguish between 0.5 mm and 0.4 mm? I couldn't do it. I couldn't do it for the other two pads I had ruined, either. I think the guy on the video, must have had a very good day. Or maybe he took many video takes before releasing that one. If the pad installation is so easy why do you think the company is including 4 of them with the sale of new cameras?"

I wanted to clarify what I meant by "thinnest edge" (see bottom of this photo)

Sheesh... The wording could have been more precise, but it's one thing to ask for clarification, and an entirely different thing to slam it as bad. And he poured on the hate because you included 4 pieces. Some people!

What's more when you watch the video it becomes apparent what was meant.

Hi OCD Tronic

I was just about to order when I noticed I had 4 pads in my A119 box, lucky me. But thanks for the offer and the great video. I managed to remove a few mm of pad on the right hand side so the pad doesn't cover any of the vent holes.
