Hello today I received my Viofo A 129 Duo. Everything installed and set up. The following question: If the Dashcam is connected to the smartphone and you interrupt the recording then sounds a continuous beep. Can you switch it off?

I dont think so, the beeping are there to warn that the camera are not recording.
Maybe they can do something in future firmware so in intentional stopped recording there will be no warning beep.

Hello today the Viofo app has been updated. I'm curious if you can disable the beep sound in the settings. Anyway, you can now copy photos and videos to your smartphone.

I saw the update too on the iOS app. how do you know when Viofo releases a new Firmware update? and what is the procedure to install a new Firmware update into the A129 and can you use a PC and/or a Mac computer with the A129 for updates and viewing? or is it just PC compatible? Thanks

New firmware appears here: http://support.viofo.com/support/solutions/folders/19000140970

And you just follow the instructions, basically put the file in the root folder of the memory card, put the memory card in the camera, then turn on and wait a full minute.

I don't think the app supports firmware updates at this time, not sure if it will. But you can either watch here or the Viofo site, http://support.viofo.com/support/home for firmware. The OS doesn't matter to update the firmware or view files. You can use Dashcam Viewer if you wish, not sure if it supports front\rear of the Viofo A129 currently. But should work for front rear separately at least.

Please do the following to upgrade the dash cam

The firmware will be automatically deleted from Micro SD card after upgrade completed.
  1. Use a memory card (recommend 16GB-128GB memory card) formatted by camera or on computer as FAT32
  2. Insert card in camera and connect it to computer using USB cable
  3. Copy the FWA119P.bin on the root of the card
  4. After FWA119P.bin is copied to the card disconnect the camera from computer
  5. Reconnect the camera to your computer and wait few seconds until the camera restart.

The front red LED will be blinking while upgrading.
You don't have to connect the camera to the computer, you can just use the microSD card if you wish. Then put the microSD back in the camera and power the camera with a USB wall charger or in the car. That's my preferred method.

Hi,
How is your download speed via WiFi? I use a Samsung S7 and the WiFi download speed is slow...
Try both 2.4 and 5GHz. With my G5S Plus, 2.4GHz is faster.

Couple of questions:

  1. Are there plans to allow connecting to an existing wifi network? If I can connect it to my home network, I can automate the copying of new locked files.
  2. Is there a way of connecting to wifi without having to disable mobile data?
