I'm sure the HWK will be along very soon as most people will want it, and it's already designed- I have one for testing and it works great The only thing you lose without it is automatic parking mode and you may have to plug/unplug for power if your cigarette lighter socket isn't switched.Now on aliexpress:

Looks like they are planning to add some options but they are not active yet. Think I will probably wait until the hardwire kit is available etc..
As to when other options become available I won't offer an opinion; could be soon to never. Viofo has spoken about some of these so I think they'll come along in time once production ramps up. AFAIK there is only one issue with the A139 relating to use of motion detect parking mode; Viofo is aware of this and is working on it. Using low-bitrate for parking there are no problems, and most people today prefer it anyway so I don't see it as a big issue.
This seems to be a very good cam with only long-term high heat not being tested yet as it's a new cam and there hasn't been time for that, but indications so far make me think that will not be a problem. I'd buy it now if you want one, then pick up the HWK when it becomes available
