Good news because there are still people which want a cheaper camera than Viofo A119.
I remember one issue reported by some users are the reflections on the lens.

enjoy,

Yes
can i buy just the lens and put it on my existing a118's? i think it would benefit from that narrower FOV, and apparently more light coming in at night.

They'll need to make a drastic improvement as the current version of the A118C with a CPL meant for the Mini series is useless at night.

@viofo Can we please have some pics or videos from the old and the new camera. (comparison)

The first of the two pics in both sets are the new A118. Date stamp is exactly the same as the old camera.

lens housing is different also so wouldn't look the best in the old housing, needs the updated housing for the CPL option also

Don't have plan to sell the lens separately, but offer one for testing is not a problem.
Not only the lens changed, will come with other improvement, will share more info and update the #1 and #2 post.

please describe which screenshot belongs to which dashcam ?
The stamp with "京AAAAAA" is REXING V1 version, bought it from Chinese local market, noticed this version is similar as TCL CDV300X, especially the LCD screen part, but seems the LCD screen is not good, it is hard to see anything from screen after mounted in the car.

The retail price will be same or not much more than the old version.
I think SpyTec will list A119 on Amazon CA soon, don't know what price they will sell.

Most readers don't know font and style of OSD vs brand / model, so it will be more reader-friendly if before each screenshot you mention which one belongs to which dashcam.

@niko , I was looking at pictures file names and in this way I found which screenshot is from A118C2. But first time I was thinking the best picture is from A118 because the comparison was uploaded by user viofo. ;) My guess was confirmed after I read the names of the pictures.

enjoy,

More than I can review. ;)

Maybe rexing v1 I have is better version.
LCD screen is pretty good.
Of course from an angle from driver position, video on any wedge shaped screen is hard to see.
I have a119 mounted currently and I have to move my head close to see anything on the screen.
Or are you talking about the quality of LCD screen itself even up close?
