All dashcams now have loop recording function where old files get overwritten first when full.

Just to share with dashcam kakis here, this is a spectacular dashcam at spectacular deal. Outstanding dark performance and capacitor instead of battery. I bought mine last 11.11 for 430yuan + 10% discount but tomorrow 12.12 the price suppose to be even better, 399-30 + RM20 off (if pay with REVPAY and having Tmall points). No problem thank work locally and come with English interface.Let me know if you wish for more info from me.

I have just received my unit.
Trying the firmware upgrade as instructed here. http://www.xiaoyi.com/yicarcam6/firmware.html

Problem is, no matter which way of the two (normal and emergency update) my unit will request for SD card format instead of Step 4 in the guide.
The firmware upgrade doesn't prompt at all and ask for SD format ranting.gif

Am i missing anything not included in the instruction? current firmware is V 1.01.004

How about updating using the Yi dashcam app?

I know the latest version removes the english menu.

Was there a prompt to change pw for the dash cam? I didn't get any

Also I seem to have problems connecting to it

2 out of maybe 10 times successful connection..other than that either can't detect via wifi or says pw incorrect

Using latest IOS

Could you provide a screenshot of the update screen in the yi app. mine seems to be missing this option. Is there a Chinese version of this app other than from the android market.

Thanks.

You mean firmware V-1.01.017?

Not yet as I read someone updated and lost the English menu. Waiting for confirmation from Yi on this.

Confirm fw v-1.01.017 upgrade removes the English UI
Saw the update when connect the cam via app...took the bait

Any idea how to revert to old fw ? Or other fw ?

I think it's because of Yi Ultra dashcam which is the international version of the King Edition.

Which one is better Viofo A119V2 or this? From what I find is that capacitor can resist more heat in our climate. And the new compact yi dash cam is still inferior to this right?
