    I have several issues with this update. Firstly the front camera stops recording after 2 minutes (set with 2 min recording interval). The rear camera seems to continue recording normally...
    Made a reset of the SD card (128 Gb samsung very fast card)
    Before the rear camera was not detected until I deconnect and reconnect it (after update)

    Check the firmware update for your A800.

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

    Hello, the camera shoots for hours every 15 or 20 days, sometimes in park, and drains the battery.  It does this sometimes.  Type of connection 1 cable is connected to the vehicle ignition 1 cable is connected in such a way that there is continuous electricity.  The assembly was done in accordance with the booklet.  This way he rarely shoots continuously.  I think it has something to do with the software.

    I have the dual channel A800 and 70mai hard-wire kit. The dash-cam systems has been working pretty great right out of the box. But ever since I updated to 1.0.9ww last week, the dash cam will SOMETIMES fail to start when I start the engine (before I updated the firmware it used to just turn on and off with my car perfectly every single time). 

    At first I though it might just be the screen that didn't turn on, but after I did some tests I realized the dash-cam was not ON at all and it didn't record anything.

    Another problem that has been bugging me is the time setting. I am in western Canada (GMT -8:00) and I wanted it to adjust the time according to the daylight saving time. But the clock on the dash-cam is permanently 1 hour later than the actual time. No matter how I set it, it's always 1 hour slower than the current time. Now I just gave up on setting the time.

    I have only owned this dash cam system for less than 1 year, and I have been regretting ever since I read it somewhere that the A800 is officially considered "retired".
