I think we had another report of no live view on the iPhone X, other models haven't been an issue for this, not sure what's different about the X, I'll check with our app developer and see if he's had any progress on this

Any update on a new firmware release? Looking forward to the long press on alert button to turn off unit.

I have a feeling there will be a official release firmware soon.
If you have registered for the extra 1 year of warranty, and put in your email you should get notified when there is a new firmware.

Also AMD powered (y)

Latest remote key button press options:

Short Press = Emergency File (Saves current video clip + either the one before or after into the RO folder)

Long press 3 seconds turns wifi on/off (Button flashes when recording, but will turn solid red once WiFi is on and broadcasting)

Long press 10 seconds to power off the whole system. (System will turn back on after the next engine/accessory startup sequence)

Was there a fix in this version for missing overlay text in recordings? I'm still seeing it (technically NOT seeing it) at random. Will install this firmware regardless, but was curious about it. Files are still being named correctly, they're just missing the text and SG logo across the bottom, both front & rear.

you only seeing that problem if it happens from when the camera first starts recording, ie; it doesn't lose them half way through at any time?

So far I've only found them in lock files where I pushed the button, which basically never happens right after starting the car. Unfortunately by the time I find them, the non-lock files from that time have already cycled out. Tomorrow I should have some free time to go through clips again to see if I can find one where it started, to see if there's some sort of trigger, or how long it stayed missing.

maybe something with the lock process then, there was a change in the process in V1.12 so will need to see if that's still the case, if it's repeatable it's easier to fix

After I upgraded from v1-12, I noticed that my video-out settings defaulted to PAL 50 Hz, which is incompatible to my current requirements. Are all settings expected to be reset to default after a firmware upgrade? Not sure if I need to re-check all my settings.

That's correct, everything defaults back to factory defaults (Australia localization) after a firmware update. Check and change all your settings, Timezone, Frequency, MM/DD/YYYY Date Format, etc

It will be nice if / when we dont have to do settings after each new FW install.

My phone got a update a few days ago, and it threw it completely off and it was coughing up security stopping errors every 5 - 10 seconds, pretty much rendering the phone useless, at least if you are any normal phone user.
But me talking between 5 and 50 minutes a month and using 1 GB of the data, not so much, but still aggravated me like a SOB, so i had to do a factory reset of the phone, which seem to have cleared that problem.
Only problem now is i have not registered the phone with any account so the play store are off limit to me and so the few APPs i had installed, so i probably have to do something tomorrow, and i think i will set up yet another skeleton google account.
