Emergency Recording Process
The camera will pack 30 seconds before and after you trigger the
emergency button (total 1 min video) into emergency folder.
The file will be protected from regular recording and not be automatically written over.

Went for a few night drives. I realized the Micro SD card I was using gave a low speed card warning. Thus I ended up with no night footage and have to try with a different card.
The card was a Silicon Power brand with 32GB space and rated up to 85MB/s
It is model number SP032GBSTHBU1V20SP. I have mentioned this to Jay so hopefully he forwarded it to Vico.

Updated to 2.2 with no issues. Firmware is on their webiste here

Make sure to check your Mic volume settings in the menu. Loud is way too loud and causes a lot of distortion. I turned it down one and it seems okay now.

Night time looks nice. Have you played with the parking mode at all? Curious how well it functions.

I need to talk to my electronics guy about getting it installed in my car, but it is on my list. Sorry for the delay.

Yeah, night videos look really good! Even on Youtube and dirty windows. ;) I shouldn't talk, my windows are filthy. Can you post links to the raw night footage?

Can we turn the speed display "off"?
I believe so. I'll have to double check my settings tomorrow. I don't have a GPS mouse, but I believe there is an off and on setting in the menu.

@dtm320i Yes, you can simply unplug the given GPS module and turn off the G-sensor in the settings.

Hi VicoVation,

For Opia2 Lane departure, Forward collision and Speed camera functions, does each alarm switch on and off separately?
