I wish I had such luck, but no joy.This mod does not affect parking, everything should be OK
As said previously all the settings were the same as previous firmware versions which I have been using successfully. The power hasn't changed as I'm using the official Viofo HK3. It could be anything, I just can't be arsed chasing it down when 2.4 works perfectly using the same settings/power. It could be my particular hardware revision, who knows?Can you list your power source and relevant settings, maybe one rings a bell.
Does stock V2.5 20210715 work fine?As said previously all the settings
Yes, stock 2.5 was working fine with parking mode. I was using TS codec as recommended, but now gone back to mp4.Does stock V2.5 20210715 work fine?
I checked the code again in the mod firmware, no, everything is ok there !!
I never use parking, so I can't tell you what is wrong with you !!
What codec do you have enabled or is it not important?
Yes, stock 2.5 was working fine with parking mode
Thank you for a some very good information.My 2c worth:
There potentially may be a confusion between the f/w versions: there was no formal stock v2.5 - the VIOFO official d/l page still only lists v2.4.
Version v2.5build20210715 has leaked out from one of the VIOFO's blog pages (namely: from HERE) and technically, it is not official. I guess that's what you guys call "stock", right?
Then, I know that Mr vvs49 did the few mods based on that firmware, and at least one of those mods did NOT work correctly in parking mode.
So, it is important to be sure that the right (working) BIN file is used for re-flashing - read on.
How to identify the proper bin file that we need (I have also uploaded it to HERE , just in case):
- in the dashcam "Firmware version" menu item, is says that the version is "vvs49 M_2_715"
- the exact file size of the FWA119V3.BIN file (inside the ZIP archive) in bytes should be 2665756
I have just tried my A119v3 via HK3 with that very firmware above, and it worked just fine. Yellow cable state (12V/0V) properly controls entrance/exit to/from the parking mode. You can tell that be the pictogram in the left top cormer of the LCD screen.
If that still doesn't work, maybe the settings are the culprit.
I have attached the known-good settings table from one of the web forums, and that's what I was using in my tests above.
mariomart, what parking mode are you using? Auto event detection (AED), Time Lapse or LowBitrate?
Maybe you can try the exact settings from that attached table, and if it works (and it should), if you need the PMode other than AED, just set it accordingly.
Oh, and also: after each new f/w load, all settings MUST be reset to their defaults via the menu action, before you then set them to your preferred values - I think you know that.
Hopefully this will work for you... and for anyone else with the similar issue, for that matter.
No worries, m8. Glad it all worked out in the end.Thank you for a some very good information.
So, 3rd times a charm.
Now that's interesting... Never seen that. I'd be more inclined to blame the wrong firmware version.the only difference was that I had been using TS video format which I think is what was causing the parking mode problem.
Nice.I think I've hit the sweet spot :
VVS Mod 205
2560x1080 @ 30fps
Having looked at the footage the freeze frame capability, even right up to 60mph/97kph is the best so far.
