Sir can you please tell the exact model, I am seeing so many A119 versions on Ebay and Aliexpress which is confusing as this is my first time with the dash cams. Or if you could pm me your sellers ebay link it would be really great.

Default Re: The Dashcam / Car Video Recorder (DVR) Thread

My SJCAM4000 now 3 years old, has started giving problems, I am getting a message on the screen saying memory card is full, I format and then it works fine till it gets filled to capacity.

Wonder why it is not making space by itself.

The battery had bulged taking the panel of the power button out, I had removed the panel and use the actual switch to move to the menu.

Anyone came across this problem and has any ideas?

Regards
Shailesh

I saw these posts today - somehow missed seeing these earlier.

I got my Blaupunkt DVR repaired from their service centre in Mumbai - had shipped it to them. They returned it to me about 3 weeks ago, and it worked well for the last 3 weeks and then stopped working again today ! I sent a mail to them today but haven't got any response from them. Not at all impressed by the repair carried out by Blaupunkt.

I'm not aware of any DVR repair shop , but a general purpose electronic repair shop ( camera/computer ) may be able to do it. But as my experience goes, it's unlikely to be reliable. It's probably better to buy a new one if the old one's worked for 2+ years. I guess these products in general have a life of 2-3 years.

Most likely I'm going to order a viofo , or maybe a Blaupunkt again as it costs 3.2k . No point in spending a lot of money if a cam lasts for a couple of years or so.

Could you share the sellers link and price? Did you have to pay custom duty?

Be careful with the CPL filter. Tends to fall off with the slightest touch. However, mysteriously stays intact even on very bad roads.

I have purchased from Shenzhen Smartway Technology Co., Ltd. and paid USD 102.66, after applying USD 15 seller discount. No customs duty.

Got a tip to use adhesive tape to prevent falling

Meanwhile, I have inquired with Viofo about maximum memory card size supported by A119 and received the following reply

Quote:
Thanks for choosing VIOFO.
Yes, A119 supports memory card up to 128GB.
Also according to our experience, Transcend or Samsung Micro SD card works well with our camera.

Folks, I am planning to buy a dashcam(both front and rear) for my car. I am getting it with the help of a friend who is returning from US. How good are the below shortlisted ones?

1. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...51H955MN&psc=1

2. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...XRLEY3V4&psc=1

I am inclined to go towards the first option but it does not come with built in wifi/gps. And also the rear camera is a vga one. Is that ok? Any other suggestions are welcome.

Why not a Transcend DP220?

Retailing at near about the same cost:

https://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Dri...ranscend+dp220

I got a DP220 from Amazon US earlier this year. Works like a charm.

Lots of better options available in the price range you're looking at.

I'd be leery of buying from a company that doesn't even list the complete specifications.

The OV4689 sensor can't do 4K.

I was looking at DP220 as well but since I was shopping for front and rear cams together I thought of other options. This has only one recorder right.

I was purely going by reviews and thought that since it has favorable reviews than it should be good. Any other brands that you can think of around 100$ price?

You won't find a decent dual channel within $100, nothing even half decent.

Go for separate cameras for the front and rear.

Within this price range, VIOFO is quite decent. I'd suggest the A119 over the A119S as of now, at least until the 'XXXXX boxes' bug is put to rest.
