New firmware needed asap

I was given the A800 cam as a gift.

I installed it but found that the speed unit will only register in KPH.

As i live in the UK this unit is useless in the event of an accident as we use MPH, KPH is not recognised by UK insurance companies.

To my dismay i learnt that the unit cannot be changed without a firmware update. My cam reports that i have the latest version 1.0.6ww.

Why can this not be changed without flashing the firmware ? It's riduculous to say the least, there should be a setting in the menus to alter it.

So when will the new firmware be issued ?

Also where can i get a new battery ?, the one in the brand new camera is dead.

As the cam is at the moment, it's just a screen ornament.

    That is what i am waiting for since i got this device, i am very happy with but disappointed that no frmware support or not listening users at all!

    Please make MPH for UK Users!

    I get the general idea that the makers of these cams don't listen to their customers feedback or complaints.
    They certainly don't read these posts very often judging by the replies.
    I cannot even find any information on where to buy a new battery for the A800. I know the type of battery i need but the ONLY place i have found it is in China, and the suppliers there state that they do not deliver to the UK.
    A super capacitor would have been far better than the battery in these cameras.
    If i can find anything about a super capacitor for my cam i will post on here for all that want to make the change.

    After doing some research it appears that the cam cannot be fitted with a super cap unless it is fitted to the outside of the case.
    I've seen a picture of the mod done to another cam and it looks awful so i will not be persuing it further.
    If anyone knows where a new battery can be bought i would be very grateful for the info.

    @M-DRV_1523935852039     I doubt it as the A800s is the replacement for the A800. It seems A800 owners have been left out in the cold.
    @M-DRV_1616084348330     The "customer service" from this company leaves a LOT to be desired, i've never come across a company that ignores so many of it's customers. We should all "vote with our feet" and walk away from this shoddy cowboy company.

    Check the firmware update for your A800.

    New firmware 1.0.9 is available with the ability to switch to MPH.
