The EVA foam is for dampening vibrations between the GPS mount and the A119 Pro.

Final thoughts
The A119 Pro uses the same shell as the A119 & A119S. The only difference is the lens and sensor. Also the inclusive of the suction mount & EVA foam is an added plus.

The image quality of the videos is kinda lacking compared to the A119 & A119S. But as an owner of both the A119 & A119S, knowing that Viofo will release a firmware later for the A119 Pro that will greatly improve the image quality like how they did for the A119 & A119S. Can’t wait.

Will update again with videos when there is a new firmware released for the A119 Pro.

10 years, many dashcams
Aaaa the great city "KL" (y) too bad i only got to see your airport on my way home.

And yes people should know that all dashcam makers when they release a new model, that's just a bare bone model and things like image quality are pretty stock and may / will use a lot of tweaking in firmware's to come.

If any dashcam maker say we dont do that we only release polished products and you know that for a fact, then please give me their name.
The only new thing with the A119 pro is the sensor used, everything else are pretty normal.

Thank you! Good to know about the EVA foam. I’m surprised to hear that the A119 Pro’s video quality is worse than the A119. I’ll have to put my A119 back up (I swapped it out for the Pro today) to see how the compare as well.
