Starting a collection
Both my non pro X2s record at a much lower volume than my other two cameras (Thinkware and Blackvue). The others may also be recording at a much higher level than what is normal. However the X2 waveform shows up flat in the video editor. Maybe if I used a more expensive editor, the waveform might show up better. Even if there is a firmware upgrade to boost the audio, I may not do the upgrade as the cameras are working fine otherwise. In this shot, you can see I have audio track 2 turned way down to match the sound of audio track 1. I was making the sync adjustments little by little till I didn't hear an echo. It's just way faster and easier to be able to see the waveform and sync it up that way.

Still hungry, breakfast didn't hold me out long.

connected the test rear camera to the SGGCX2PRO,
on the screen there is a PIP (picture in picture)
I used to think this was only realized in 9663

WiFi is overrated in my personal experience. You mess with it a few times in the early days and don’t / rarely use it again after that. It’s way faster to pop the card into your computer via usb reader and play/save/edit what you want.

or pop in card into OTG memory card reader and playback/download videos on the go via smartphone/tablet with way much greater speed than via slow WiFi.

your camera sounds normal, your mobile phone recording is louder but that's to be expected
Thanks for your reply Jokiin.

Unfortunately. the recording volume in my SGGCX2Pro isn't adequate to record a conversation that is occurring in the car, or with someone at the car window, unless they were shouting!!!

It didn't sound any different than others, what software are you using for playback?
Thanks for your reply.

I have tested with VLC, Windows Media Player and DashCam Viewer at 100% volume. The result is the same in all players.

There may not be anything wrong with may cam, it might just be that the SGGCX2Pro by default has a lower recording volume than other brands I have heard, and lower than I expected.

Maybe a future firmware update will increase the gain.

What's the difference between this new model with SG9663DC?
