I have installed this new firmware( 20170213)on my Mini 0805 ( one microSD card, no internal memory, original firmware 20161111 V2.0 from Gearbest).
Have not noticed any IQ difference;
Things I have noticed:
Faster power on and power off cycle;
G sensor settings now "OFF- Low- Med-High " instead of numerical values; when triggered, lock symbol appears on whole screen with audible signal
Beep sound now has "Off-Low-Med-High" instead of "On-Off" selection (in my test I haven't noticed any difference when choosing);
Biggest surprise is "Sensor Flip", now camera can be rotated like 0806 (might be a bug ?)
Missing battery icon on menu screen, instead it has little power cord/plug in the corner( even if Camera runs on battery power), however in my test it ran longer on battery power than before.
My biggest issue was recording time. No matter what selection chosen (1 min, 3 min, 5min) it only records 1MIN. Clips (tried in different resolutions)!
So I tried to reload my old firmware back (20161111 V2.0 that I've extracted from this camera) and it does not work! I've got the same broken menu screen as it was reported earlier here.
I downgraded to firmware 20160317 V1.0 and my Mini 0805 is working for now
Red flashing lock is file lock/protection symbol when G-sensor is triggered. Probably yours is set too sensitive ( try to set G sensor to Med or Hi in camera menu).
Mine was only recorded for 1min!
This FW (20170213) has many bugs, so I downgraded to FW 20161111
Hi,Can you name the bugs? I want to create a complete package of all the bugs reported and send it to Skyhigh Global so they can fix it
You mentioned the 1 minute clips already, found any more?
Bugs I found: "G- sensor sensitive " menu confusing, in my test "HI" settings is actually less sensitive, "LOW" is more sensitive. When triggered red locks appear on the display, but files are not protected!!!! Even if tried to lock file manually ( by pressing button on the camera) yellow triangle appeared on the top of the camera display but when playing files back they are not protected, so could be easily overwritten.
1 min. clips even when "Resycle" set to "OFF".
These are major bugs I found doing bench test, figured it's not worth it to go for a vehicle test since these are a major issues in my opinion.
yes just set the timezone and the camera will set the clock for you when the GPS gets signal
G-Sensor is personal preference, some people like it more sensitive but this can lock too many files for no reason, less sensitive is generally better
I've just bought the Mini 0805, after bad experiences with the Nano 0903 Plus.
Any further updates on the 2017 version Firmware?
Is the release on Dashcamtalk 0805 page still Beta, or Final?
