the chipset will only run to 70 degrees anyway
The overheat shutdown is there to protect the camera, I can't see them ever wanting to turn this off
Performed thru formatter software, problem remained. After changing the card, now seems ok. Let me run thru...hope no more problem. Thanks for the advise.Make sure you let the card completely format when you first put it in. I have ran across this problem and i think it was because i did not let the camera format the card completely.
Hi Glee, I live in San Francisco so I won't be able to test extreme heat or extreme cold any time soon. I'd still like to help everyone out though. My understanding is the new firmware improved the cold weather operation. I'm not aware of any hot weather issues. What kind of "hot sun" are we talking about? Do you have a thermometer handy to test the precise temperature reached in your car via the green house effect? The amplified green house temperature can be pretty crazy hot under already extreme heat conditions. I can see allowing a unit to operate under cold temps safely, but it's pretty tough to get electronics to operate under "extreme" heat situations.Hi guys,
I have parked my ride under hot sun(min 4hrs) and I confirmed that the cam will be shut down automatically.
The new firmware have not resolve my problem....
Qns: why the cam did not auto "on" after cool down to room temp?
What is the new feature "improve low temp endurance"? Is this for cold country when the temp gone subzero?
30C = 86FChipset is good for 70c temps, temps in a closed car can exceed 30c above ambient so a 40c day can be enough to cause a shutdown if the car is parked outside in full sun
Sorry only know the metric numbers but I'm sure you guys can work it out
When i first bought my WF1 I thought you could do this as well, but the A5 does not support this.For me I would like to be able to stream to my phone in real time without interrupting recording.
