Ambarella Mini 0803
Hi Chaps, interesting tread! I purchased my Mini 0805 (or 0803???) 1.5 month ago at MINIDASHCAM.NL
It runs good but the software version is: FW 20140826 V1.0.
On the housing `1296P Super HD` is printed, on the box Ambarella A7LA50D.
It is not possible to choose for other than 30FPS (like 45 or 60FPS) and also no 2560*1080, both features who should be available on a Mini 0805.

As I said the camera runs well, I purchased a Mini 0805 but is this a 0805 or 0803??

What will bring updated software, will I get more features or better quality? I intend to film on 1920*1080 or 1304*1296.

I hope some specialists knows more, special in "what I gain" with a software update.

Huib,
Houten, the Netherlands

Too many
Hi Huib, unfortunately there have been reports of minidashcam.nl selling on 0803 cameras and saying they are 0805 - they also said the 0806 was fake when it was first launched.

I'm not really sure why they are doing this is it is very bad business, I guess they are just trying to shift their old stock of 0803 cameras and are hoping no-one notices. It seems a very dangerous game they are playing though. Maybe it is an honest mistake and if so they should send you the correct camera

Strictly speaking you should get a refund as the camera is not what you have purchased but if you are happy with it then the decision is up to you.

Thanks!

Is there a source from the manufacturer for the internal memory versions? It appears they are harder to come by and possibly not updated as frequently.

Hi everybody,
Just upgraded my (E-prance branded) 0805 to the latest FW 20150423, apart the boot logo picture and ADAS instead of LDWS differences, it seems to me that no main # are evident.
My question is about the possibility to downgrade FW...is it possible? and where is available (if it is) a real 0805 fw 20150208?
Thanks 4 attention!

Hi Jokiin
Thanks,
I've tried to flash fw 20150208, but voices in menu settings are not visible, had to re-flash FW 20150423 (maybe because fw 20150208 is not specifically designed for 0805, infact within the 0805 fw repository, comment is
"20150208 GPS + ?CARDS - Users reported that this firmware might be a 0806 one", that's why i'm searching a true 0805 fw. (source fw: http://dc.p-mc.eu/0805/firmware)

Not sure, there's not much in the way of support for these, its mostly only what people have extracted from their cameras and shared, the hardware sometimes gets revised so that might not always make all versions suitable for your hardware series even if they look the same

You can upgrade or downgrade firmware as you please

I tried downgrading from the 2015 firmware to the 20141211 and it says upgrade failed.

How do I successfully downgrade? Im downgrading because the new firmware doesnt show any velocity or Gps co ordinates anymore even after I enabled it in the setting.

Try a different firmware version, that one might not be compatible with your hardware

That was the one it originally came with. So I dont know why its not downgrading.

Did it come off your camera?
Im not sure what you mean by coming off camera?

I had the 20141211 firmware when i got my camera from factory. And then i upgraded to the 2015 firmware but the GPS and Speed isnt working on it plus the nights at light makes the video blurry. So i assume that the firmware should be downgraded to the original 20141211 firmware.

I upgraded it by putting it into my microsd card.
