Even worse:It's definitely annoying, though if something would happen (accident, or like with your wife) I would be more than happy to go
through all the footage to find the right clip. cos wrong date or not, the camera does film everything.
if have sent 10 mails (yes that's TEN) to TW KOREA about this problem and got 0 (yes that's ZERO) reply. - their customer service is a F'in joke
though in all fairness, TW UK were very reactive when I contacted them about my Q800 cameras which overheated.
Months ago I did have something happen right after formatting the card so I didn't have much to go through. It still did no good. It seems having the wrong time/date doesn't just sort them incorrectly... it makes successive clips record over each other. Practically useless!
Considering that it remains powered from the vehicle when parked it is inexcusable that the firmware can't maintain the correct time/date from GPS at least until external power is interrupted. There is no engineering excuse for not doing this! This expensive device invariably fails at it's most basic function (reliable incident recording) within a few short years even if you get expensive installation that should increase reliability and they won't even issue a super-simple firmware mitigation after the problem reveals itself. It's laughably incompetent. I can't even suggest it's planned obsolescence or an attempt to force you to upgrade, since all it will actually do is make sure NO ONE buys from them again and all previous customers will tell others to stay far away.
