VIOFO A129 Pro 4K 1-Channel Dash Cam with GPS
Got it pretty fast and I’m very satisfied with this product 👌🏼. I had a problem with my Micro SD card, I couldn’t reformat it (my computer couldn’t read the Micro SD card). I emailed them back and they responded quickly and I’ll be getting my new Micro SD Card. Thanks Grayson for responding quickly! Awesome customer service!
I had a few questions on the installation, I contacted your tech-support and they were answered. The VIOFO A129 Pro Duo is installed and working perfectly. Absolutely great video much better than my previous Dash cam. I will definitely make my future purchases from you, and recommend you to my friends.
I had the dash cams & external battery installed by Car Toys at the recommendation of my dealership (I drive a 2020 Subaru Forester). The guys at CT did great work, all the wires are neatly tucked away and the camera's placement doesn't interfere with my Forester's Eyesight system.
The adhesive that comes with the cameras is excellent for mounting to glass, but my rear camera is mounted to a textured interior panel and the adhesive didn't hold to it for very long. It fell off after less than day. I slapped on some double sided mounting tape about 2 weeks ago and haven't had any trouble since.
So far the camera works great and does everything as advertised. I am noticing that it somewhat regularly locks files on its own so I'm having to reformat the card every other week when it runs low on "unlocked" files that it can overwrite.
The app is pretty sweet overall. It makes changing the cameras' settings a breeze and I can check their orientations very easily with it. I did have some issues with the app not letting me download video files to my camera, which magically fixed itself after I restarted the camera. The new problem now is the app will give me an error when I try to turn off the camera's recording in order to change the settings. It's not a big deal though, I can still manually end the recording at the camera itself and then the app lets me into the settings menu.
Overall I'm totally happy with this purchase!
The install guy was great and very efficient in getting the job done in a timely manner as well as being attentive to making sure nothing was damaged during the full install
I went to the Richmond shop to get the cable, the product works perfectly and the service was awesome
I ordered a VIOFO A129 Pro Duo 4K 2-Channel Dash Cam with GPS on a Friday, and then revised my order the next day to add a couple of fuse taps to make the hardwire installation easier. Katrina contacted me on the following Monday to let me know that the Essential BlackboxMyCar Install Package included the taps, was on sale, and was a cheaper option than buying the fuse taps alone. Now that’s service! I received the complete package 2 days later, and had it installed less than a week after I had ordered it. The high number of good reviews about BlackboxMyCar are well deserved!
I am impressed with the video quality of the Viofo A129. The 4K front camera provides a clear video with good colour balance and clarity (I bought the optional CPL Filter as well), and the 1080p rear camera delivers quality that exceeds what I expected. I’m very satisfied with both. I did test the quality at night, and I think the clarity of the 1080p rear video is actually better than the front 4k at night, although both are very good. That may be due to the CPL filter on the front camera? My vehicle is usually parked in a garage so I wasn’t as concerned about the parking mode or cloud features as some buyers may be, but the parking mode seems to work well.
The installation was very straightforward after watching a few YouTube videos for tips. I highly recommend using fuse taps for a hardwire installation. The front camera is easily detached from the GPS mount so it can be removed from the vehicle easily if desired, but the rear camera can’t be removed if mounted on the supplied sticky mount. My installation was in a hatchback, and I had a little trouble getting the rear camera aligned perfectly, so I replaced the supplied tape with Velcro industrial strength tape (cheap at a hardware store) and bingo, easy to mount the camera and get it oriented correctly! As a bonus, the rear camera can now be easily detached and removed as well.
There is no MicroSD card included with the Viofo A129, so after researching cards I bought a Kingston Canvas Go! Plus 256GB (a U3 V30 card), and it is working perfectly.
There was also a little bonus from Viofo. When I registered the dashcam on their website, my warranty was automatically extended from 1 year to 18 months.
Overall, I’m very happy with the Viofo dashcam, BlackboxMyCar, and a special kudo to Katrina for exceptional customer service!
Easy to install, App works as promised. Will be purchasing more!
satisfied with the unit, works well
Installation was easy, although the default impact detection is a bit sensitive (or maybe the roads where i live are just bad).
Image quality is clear and fantastic on front camera, back camera is good quality for a rear camera also.
Easy to use and made stalling my dash cam quick and neat. Third time I've used them and won't use anything else
This kit made hardwiring my dashcams simple. Simple is good! You just have to order it with the correct fuse size.
I'm a long time iroad user but I'm based in Hong Kong. My best friend in the U.S. just bought his first Porsche and I thought why not celebrate it by getting him a dashcam. So I contacted Blackboxmycar to clarify that the warranty would go to my friend even though I was buying it. BBMC was more than willing to accommodate so theatest iroad unit + OBD power plug was ordered and shipped. BBMC was extremely helpful and answered my questions. True professionals.
I purchased this product after I did my initial purchase of the dash cam as I wanted as clean of a look as I could get. The installation was pretty straightforward but I think a redesign of some of the cables is needed. They have to be installed in a certain order to fit and there is not much room to work with. I was able to finally get it installed and I also installed the SD card guard to prevent the removal of the memory card. This is where my frustration started. In order to see the videos on your computer, you need to transfer them from the SD card. So if you want to use the SD card guard, you need to uninstall it and reinstall it each time you remove the memory card. If they could update their software allowing the user to download all or some of the videos (easily) and then transfer them to the computer from your phone, it would be so much better.
I purchased this camera based on a couple of reasons: the promo/price and the fact that it could withstand extreme temperatures. Having no prior experience installing dash camera or most other electronics in a vehicle, I was able to set it up in just over an hour.
I also purchased the OBDII scanner/power supply to got with it as I would rather use that to power it than hardwire it or use the 12V adaptor. In order to use the OBD scanner app, i needed to know the Korean name of my vehicle. After answering a few quick questions about the vehicle, it was all set.
Lots of great features on the camera. The voice commands help navigate the system. The smartphone app is okay, but could use some work. I was only able to download one clip at a time vs a series of clips. The Windows desktop app is 10x better than the Mac app.
Overall a pretty good system. Hopefully they make some updates to the software and also they design a CPL filter as well.
I am impressed by the customer service and they made sure I got the right product for me for the right price. Thank you guys and highly recommend this company
I wanted to give this camera a shot based on the reviews I read and it performed as described. The installation was failry easy to naviagate through and it met my requirements. Great camera!
I was previously using the DR750S-2CH for my weekend toy. One of the most important features for me was parking mode and live look in. Upgrading to the LTE version, with the sim card try built right in, I was finally able to eliminate bringing a LTE hotspot device and 20,000 mah battery pack around just for parking mode cloud features! Setting up the SIM went smooth without any issues, and now the dash cam is always online!
Essential BlackboxMyCar Install Package
I'm pleased with the quality of the viofo dashcam, and impressed with the customer service I received from black box my car. I'd definitely buy another from them.
thanks for the super fast shipping camera looks great, work perfect and easy to set up thanks for your great customer service
787...It took a minute for it to get here because of the shipping problems due to corona.....but it was well worth the wait.
Very Satisfied Client.
I'll definitely be upgrading once the new version comes out.
I owned one of these for close to 3 years, I operate heavy machinery, and as a result most mounts break in a few week's from the violent shaking and heavy hits, and that's if it can even hold on. After years, this mount hadn't come loose (while being removed and re stuck to countless pieces of glass), or dropped my phone once. It finally broke because I was too lazy to loosen the ball in the back every day when I move it around, and the joint finally had enough. Before the pieces made it to the garbage, I had already ordered the exact same one again.
I have been looking at the Blackvue Camera for over 2 years and I have finally bought one. It’s being installed soon but I have done my research on this product and on the Blackbox my car company and they have proven to both be solid. I will be purchasing from them again soon.
Installation was easy, however at a 100% charge I only have around 17-18 hours of battery life not the 20 that it states. However in the same token it does charge faster than the 40 minutes it would take to be 100%.
