Recently I purchased A119 + GPS module and installed on my car with cigarettes power.
In the last 2 days i've been testing it and found out the last file (video) always not playable or corrupted.
The test I've done are as follows;
Dash plus GPS
1. Setting to 3 mins - not working
2. Res to 1080p 30f and 60f - not working
3. 50hz and 60hz - not working
Only Dash (No GPS Module)
1. setting to 3 mins - working
2. res to 1080p - working
3. 50hz and 60 hz - working.
and also by looking at the LED light when I switch off the car engine, the red light disappear straight away. If it properly record & save the last file, it will blink once and stay red for another 2 - 3 seconds after the engine switch off.
I take the Dash back to room and test with USB power bank and surprise it work both with GPS and Without GPS. I now confused why it suddenly working and today my journey to work took 40 mins and last file not saved.
I appreciate if anyone can guide me through or share your experiences with this last files not saving. I've browse on the forum and seen some user also had the same issues and i've tried all the method i can find in the forum.
Hi, tested again yesterday and today morning.
Settings : -
GPS + Dash = charged from side (Not GPS module)
Second USB outlet from the cigarette to charge phone. (Tried with phone and without phone charging)
Resolution - 1080P 60f
Loop : 3 mins
Weather : Sunny 8 degree
Firmware : 2.02
Long distance - 40 mins plus - Last file corrupted
Short distance - 5 mins - Last file saved
Something strange there and now i think it's the temperature however today is about 8 degree so outside temp is not hot at all.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
thanks Jimmy, will do further test nad report back here.
I have read on a number of other sites regarding dash cameras with capacitors that they must be set to shut down immediately once the power is removed in order for the last file to be saved correctly..If the camera is set to shut down after a delay of even 3 or 4 seconds the last file can become corrupted and not save. Not sure if your camera has a delay in shutting down which could well possibly be the issue..
