So I got hold of my new Vicovation MF2 GPS from www.dashcamscentral.com.au yesterday @Chris Hunt , It is a great camera for the budget price range ($199). It has excellent video quality during day and night. The GPS also works without any flaws and the good thing is that it is a removable external part. The only downside I have felt about this camera is not having a smart parking mode. Although there is a parking mode but you have to enable the parking mode each time manually and it has to be connected to external power source after the car ignition has been turned off. You can also purchase a Vico Power Plus for back up power but it is additional $90.

I have uploaded some day and night FHD files and would love to hear some comments on it.

Day time -
Night time - The clips have been trimmed and joined to show various lighting conditions.

has this model got a battery inside?

No it doesn't. It has super capacitors instead. Can see 2x caps inside the mount.

Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
would have been a backward step if it did, good to see they got the manufacturer to update it though, it was previously only a battery model

No too many sample videos out there at the moment for this camera. Do you mind I link these these to our website?

Thanks for the info mate I have seen both videos and look pretty good to me especialy at that price point. And handy too know about the parking feature as I didn't
think it had that option. for parking mode you definatley need the power plus controller anyway so not realy a big deal. One thing I would like to know is if there is
a CPL filter available for this camera?

Yeah I looked everywhere but I will just have to custom make one then, and Chris I know your site very well and will be ordering shortly but One more question is what brand of Micro Sd cards are you selling, I have noticed on the new opia2 which is about to be released they state that the sandisk card is too slow and won't support the camera, is this the case with this model.

We usually supply Samsung EVO Class 10 cards which is our preferred option. On occasion when the Samsung cards are in short supply we need to switch to Kingston Class 10 cards. To date we have not had one single problem with either of these two cards.
Based on all of the feedback on DCT and elsewhere I have never trialed or sold Sandisk cards... just not our Preferred option.

Samsung cards are back in good supply for us now so we are shipping everything with these for the time being.

Lead times from "we're releasing something soon" to actually being in market, are usually about the same length as a piece of string (for any manufacturer!) :)

@Madd66 and @Utsav i am considering this model as well. May I ask how much you purchase them and does it include the SD card? If so, how big is the SD card do you think should be good (16gb, 32gb or 64gb). So far are you happy with your purchase? Would appreciate your experience.

Sorry mate I can't help you with this cam as I went with the opia 2, generally the SD cards are an optional extra but depends on the deal at the time.

Hi,

I bought mine through http://www.dashcamscentral.com.au/ @Chris Hunt . It was for $199 without SD card. 64 GB card preferred as you can at least record it for around 8 hours.
I am extremely happy with this purchase of MF2. Highly recommended for the price and it is best quality in comparison to the chinese / mini cams.

I just purchased this camera and I am hoping someone who already has one might be able to help me out. I have a couple of issues that whilst aren't completely devastating are still annoying,

1. The GPS works on the camera in that it shows the speed but when I go to view the video file in the HD player there is no GPS tracking. Is there something I have to enable or another accessory besides the GPS input that came in the box?
2. I cant get the time zone setting to South Australia which is 9.5+ GMT, there is no option for half settings on the time zone setting which means everytime I turn it on after manually entering the time correctly it updates to be 30 minutes out.
3. The quality of video I seem to be recording is not even close to the videos displayed here. I have tried playing with the settings with no luck changing the resolution etc. Is anyone changing the exposure settings or just using the camera defaults?

Thanks
