it seems to be working using Parking Mode = Low Bitrate, 2min loop recording, F1440P+R1080P, HK3 hardwire kit.. i formatted the card then used the attached setting... no error encountered yet for 3 days now (daily drive of 3hrs + on parking mode if not driving, using 128gb card).. see attached for my setting.. i will try to change the setting one by one to see which one is causing it.. will reformat everytime to see its full cycle until card is full.. trying it now on F4K+R1080P

i got a reply from Viofo support chat and they gave me T2 firmware, will try that one later

1- In the camera screen; I choose the rear camera large, the front camera small. When the camera is turned off and on, the rear camera view becomes small and the front camera view becomes large.

2- I use it with mirror effect for back camera use. When I connect with wifi from android application, the image returns to normal.

3- Wdr makes unstable sharp transitions on dark roads.

4- 1fps / 3fps / 5fps ... 2k 60fps front + 1080p 30fps is set in park mode, 1min / 2min / 3dk ... in cyclic recording; Whichever is chosen, the back camera recording is normal, but select the front camera video, recording at one of 60fps under cyclical time. There is no image deficiency.
If I choose 2 minutes circular recording, the front camera recording file looks 2 minutes but compresses to 1 minute. 30fps + 30fps recording is ok in parking mode, 60fps + 30fps recording problem.


5- I found the cause of the beep problem. When the memory card enters the parking mode near full, parking mode is recorded until the remaining space in the memory card. When the memory is full, it beeps and the recording stops. Pressing the buttons on the camera starts recording again. The reason for this warning may be that the drive mode records are not cyclically deleted for parking mode records. however, it will be necessary to check how much memory is left while parking, which is a waste of time. I finally found the cause of the beep problem. I hope the authorities read here and come up with a solution.

》2. Application problem
》1. 3. 4. 5. Software problem

I would be glad if you can handle these problems in the new update. thanks in advance. Have a nice working day.

based on my test, error is only on time lapse parking mode:

Time Lapse 10fps = error (it stops recording when the card is full while in parking mode)

Low Bitrate Recording = no error (continuously recording)

Auto Event Detection = no error (continuously recording once motion/impact is detected)

The time lapse looping issue is fixed in this firmware, please check.

I did try this firmware bud the camera doesnt go in time lapse parking mode it keeps recording normal clips.
Are you using the Viofo 3-wire hardwire kit?

Did you manually default the cameras settings, then press and hold the reset button for about 5 seconds after updating? Do so if you did not.

When the sd card is full, it starts to beep and not save in parking mode. I think there is fps and calculation problem. For example, a129 1080p 30fps + 1080p 30fps but a129 pro records at 2k 60fps and 1080p 60 fps + 1080p 30fps. 1 minute 3fps parking mode takes 10 minutes in real time, but the front camera shows 1 minute of file time, but it saves halfway. for this reason he is having trouble deleting the last file. cannot calculate and needs to format the memory card. I think it was a software problem. I hope the problem is solved with the new software.
You guys know in regular recording such as when you are driving around, the Dashcam is continuously recording onto your memory card in a loop. But parking mode files such as the auto detection will save the files onto the memory in which it won’t be over written to protect that file in case some event happened. My card will fill up as it’s parked on a very busy street and the motion sensor will pick up every car or person that goes by. I will have to take out that memory card and view it then delete the files. I have an extra memory card to alternate with.

Parking mode files have their own looping cycle. Unless they’re locked via the g-sensor, then newer parking mode files should overwrite older parking mode files once it reaches the set capacity. If it’s not doing that for you, there is an issue.
