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.
It's uploading as I write this, it takes for ever to upload video's. I will be taking the kids to school shortly and will take this camera out on the highway for a test drive, but probably won't get to upload it until later today. I think I will set the camera to 720P 30fps so that it doesn't take so long to upload, I don't think this will affect the results of the audio.Mikk36 said:Gobbertinker, would You be so kind and post a before and after sample for us?
I don't have an issue with the video quality of the camera, I believe I even note that in the video description. As far as video length, the option is there on the camera for 5 minute clips, 5 minutes clips make it far more less of a pain in the rear when editing than 1 minute clips. I just learning as far YouTube and down loading videos, I did not mean the stabilization to be done through YouTube.Mtz said:Better set your video length for shorter time than actual 5 minutes.
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.
I have speakers in all 4 doors, I don't know if there is also speakers in the dashboard or not, my first guess is that there probably is not. The reason for stating the radio sound is that the camera seems to pick up and amplify the thudding sounds of the truck, and the camera seems to drop the radio sound when these noises occur. I'm working on editing a better driving test video, though I'm not going to do much editing of the actual 3 clips, just getting them joined together.Mikk36 said:Wow,
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.
At first I was holding the RED button and up arrow, you have to make sure you are holding the MENU (not the red button) button and the up arrow, when the red light comes on you can let go of the buttons and wait for the red light to go out and the screen will read "firmware update complete".sludgeguts said:My email came in at 13:31 & I've been trying to upgrade ever since (a lovely way to spend your day off?)
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
