Hi Sifus here,

Plan to get a Viofo A119 dashcam, is the CPL really useful?
I'm trying to limit my budget, so thinking to go for only the device.

If you're on budget, then CPL is unnecessary.. It's just a stuff to reduce a glare. Without it, even with a glare, the dashcam can still record clearly what's in front of you..

If you got eyesore looking at one of the image below, then, you need to break your budget and buy a CPL filter ..

The video is also darker when using the CPL. Also, you'll get rainbow effects on the windscreen with certain tints like wearing polarized sunglasses.

Hi Zeese & Blurjoey,

Thanks you for your advice, i have just bought 3 units with only GPS module. Also i bought Samsung Evo Plus Class 10 32GB memory card.
However after some research i just notice below 2 statements, wonder anyone is using samsung evo +? or i should buy the Transcend High Endurance one. dry.gif
1) samsung warranty will void if use in dash cam.
2) Samsung Evo +

Evo+ is an older version. But don't think any dashcams can use the 256gb which is using V-NAND. Evo Plus is a newer version.

Yes, the warranty is void if used in dashcam and ipcams. Sandisk and others also will void. If can afford High Endurance range or MLC chip based, why not?

Most of my card is Samsung Evo Plus. I expect the life expectancy is about 2+- years if used in dashcams.

Make sure to use a 32gb micro sd card formatted as fat32 to update the fw...
