This post was also made on DashCamTalk but I thought I'd also try here to garner more insight from the Viofo community.

As of late I have been having 2 issues with my A129 Duo with the camera.

1) Not recording or responding via WiFi App. The unit makes several beeps and the recording timer does not go past 0:00:00 and locks up. The only way to get some function is to disconnect the power to the unit.
I flashed new firmware to v1.5 and the issue is still persisting- if not the locking up has worsened. The memory card I am using is a SanDisk 32GB High Endurance Class 10. Does anyone have any suspicions as to what is going on?

2) Won't start on first key turn; the unit is hardwired to the cigarette fuse on a 2008 Toyota Camry and I have also read this issue with other users who note that there is a voltage drop on ignition thus the camera is programmed to cut off if there isn't enough voltage? Does anyone have any work-arounds for this? I previously had a G1WC and this never failed me.

Update:

It's not a memory card issue; tested with another and it has the same fault.

The freezing issue appears to be only occurring when the rear camera is plugged in- it causes the whole unit to lock up and hang. When I use it without the rear camera plugged in it seems fine. Referring to another post it may be that the rear camera is faulty.
