Korean dashcam have prebuffering parking mode when using motion/g sensor mode.

When triggers, prebuffering actually have a few seconds of video before the trigger happens. So you can see what happened before the impact.

The parking mode works great with the 3 wires. Only no pre-buffering for the motion detection mode.

Viofo has said that a new firmware will implement pre-buffering so let's see how this goes.

Hope they can successfully implement it as they are very close to true parking mode that no other China dashcam makers are able to reach...

Hi guys, i like this Viofo A129 Duo except for the "stick-it-on-the-windscreen" installation/mounting. Can we do it like the way we install the Xiaomi dashcam with a windscreen holder?

There is a suction mount for A119 but not for A129 as the mounting holes are different.

Anyway, this will defeat the purpose of the discreet design of the dashcam.

Bro, thanks for the heads up. So i assumed this A129 doesn't come with the suction cup mount. If i am to install the A129 behind the discreet rear mirror position i wouldn't be able to view the screen of the A129.

Another question - the screen on the A129 - is there any option/setting to select the display between front camera or rear camera?

You can still view the screen. Just angle your head a bit only laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

There is a button on the A129 to switch between PIP, front cam only and back cam only.

Bro, if i am to install A129 with the hard wiring for parking mode (with motion detection recording setting) what will be the impact on my car battery? Will it shortened the lifespan of the car battery significantly? Will it void the warranty if the car is still under manufacturer's warranty period? If there anyway i can have the parking mode without drawing power from the car battery? Also the parking mode does it include motion detection recording on the rear camera as well?
