Hey Guys,

I'm looking to fix the constant resetting of the date stamp on my A118C. I've posted under DIY, but I thought I'd post here too. Please take a look. Any help would be great.


Thanks.

this older tread could be of some help to you.

Thanks, EGS. I'm not sure how to take the PCB out to see the other side, as that is connected to the display? I don't understand why it's this hard to replace the timekeeping battery--is it so you have to buy a new dashcam every so often?

Is there a solution to this? Would buying a GPS mount keep its time stamps accurate?

the RTC batteries normally last 4 to 5 years, GPS won't help you as you'll still lose files that don't have updated timestamps
