what's the fun in that?
yes it has an RTC battery, they take 48 hours of runtime to fully charge, if you do that and still have issues please let us know and we'll get it sorted for you
are you using firmware V1.10?Thanks for that, just to clarify, does the battery charge when plugged into USB? Or does it need to be 48 hours of driving using the hard wired connection to charge it up?
I plugged it in via USB for over 48 hours and it did appear to have charged it as it appears that the date/time saved for the next day but then a day later (today) I noticed that the time was 01/01/20 when I first started it up this morning.
Curious to how the RTC battery works, does it save the time and date so that when you turn it on again it reverts to the previous time of when the unit shut off or does it keep the time running so it is accurate?
Wondering if the parking mode is draining the RTC battery some how when it is running or does the RTC battery get a charge during parking mode.
I've had bad luck with RTC batteries as I had trouble with my previous Blackvue and potentially am having trouble with this one as well, I wondering if I am doing something wrong to make the RTC battery not save the time so that whenever it turns on it is 01/01/20.. I am using the latest 1.10 firmware on here and I did wait until the GPS corrected the date and time and then formatted..
For now I guess I will keep using it and see if the battery will eventually charge and save the time so that it doesn't state 01/01/20 when it turns on after it turns off from parking mode.. Luckily this camera is better as the GPS actually updates the date and the time as opposed to the Blackvue that I had. I'll keep using it for now to see if it fixes itself as it is only a minor convience for that when it turns on it is 01/01/20 and then a minute later when it gets the GPS signal corrects the date and the time, just don't want to be stuck with an inaccurate 01/01/20 timestamp for videos in case it never gets the GPS signal..
Anyone else have this camera that can chime in on if your date/time is saved when it turns off and when you re-open it or are you having the same behavior as me where it turns on with 01/01/20 and then corrects once it gets a GPS signal? I hope this one will fix itself or else I will look into exchanging it in the future..
I'll ask @Street Guardian USA to follow up with you, it shouldn't be resetting the date like that, I think it's better we swap the main unit out for you with a new one so we can get that one back and have a look at itYes as I was getting a black screen on the iOS app so I upgraded my cam to 1.10
