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?

I changed to capacitor based dashcams since I got my A119 in 2016...

A119 is getting HDR in the coming firmware and the video quality will be improved.

If Malaysia has 4 seasons, I will use battery dashcams like this Yi King Edition innocent.gif

Yi launched the Yi Ultra Dashcam for the international market. The Yi King Edition is for China market.

So I'm thinking that Yi wants to separate the 2 so English menu for the Ultra and Chinese for the King.

Need to find back the previous version of firmware and manual flash.

Don't think can help unless can find back the previous firmware and flash to the Yi King Edition. Yi separating the Yi King Edition and Yi Ultra by International and China like the Yi dashcam. Realy stupid.

Hi, thanks for the review of many dashcam. I'm looking to upgrade my Garmin GDR 45, with better IQ and WiFi function in mind.

Naturally i went and check out what's latest with Garmin and their expensive GDR E560 is serious very good.

However, after looking at what this can do, I think it made the Garmin really overpriced.

I'm also thinking of getting Sandisk High Endurance microSD for storage.

TS I have a noob question.

My car battery produces 12V, and during engine running with alternator charging, after using headlights and aircon, alternator and car battery together produces around 13V.

While XiaoYi camera uses USB power rated at 5V, does it drain my car battery? since my alternator only produce extra 1V while using headlights and aircond.
If I use two cams, one front one rear, does it drain even more power?

Using the USB car charger doesn't drain the car battery. The alternator is charging the car battery.
