Just a little heads up: new version of firmware is in development/testing.

It is a huge improvement but think it could be a little better, it seems to still amplify the low tone noise in my truck, but I can at least hear the radio playing through out the entire test drive.
Hats off to the manufacturer for addressing this issue so fast, I don't think anyone here in the states would have be that quick at addressing a problem. I think if you could get the mic gain to not amplifiy this low frequency noise I think I would be 100% satisfied.
When I get the kids to school I'll take for a good ride on the highway a see what happens.

1 to 3 minutes are the best for dashcams.
Also in the future don't use the Youtube feature to stabilize the shaking video because you will destroy the video quality. Use it only in very rare cases.
The improvement is definitely there.
About the radio, it seems that some of this is down to the placement of the speakers of the car and the placement of the microphone. Just at the end of the video, when you move the camera, the sound of the radio gets better, when you align the microphone better towards a speaker. Well, at least it seemed to me that way.

When I enter playback mode & press the menu/up keys, all I get is the highlighted bar scrolling through the "play all/locked" selections - and with the 'beep' switched on, it gets annoying after many seconds (their instructions said 'firmware upgrade' comes up after 5 seconds!)
1.5 hours of trying every permutation af adding the file, resetting, formatting etc. :x
