@johnboy00, I really don't know where we could buy something like this. And obviously this brand sell their product with the protective double sticker included in box and it is designated as "Static sticker". They make it for this custom model only. But the idea isn't bad at all and it is something at least. I suggest Viofo to think about an accessory of this sort to make their customers happy. It's simple and efficient. They are able to order for production some protector of the sort suitable for their models and everybody would buy at least one piece. At least I wish they would make some suction cup where we could stick the back side of the gps module and not the glass. I agree 100% with @STS134 in this respect. Simple ideas a lot, only willing of their part is necessary. Not everyone wants to stick and make grease at the windshield indeed, which is getting harder to remove with time. Meanwhile if anyone finds out some protector that resembles the above mentioned, please give here ideas. If I find something of the sort by chance, will post it here.
Post automatically merged:
This looks promising :LOL: I see here something like this costs about $9-$10, this is even cheaper or this. At least manufacturer claims that no traces remain after removal and it should be transparent. It could be stuck on some sort of windshield universal suction cup for phone.
I ordered Nano Magic Tape from seniorgghome.com about a week ago and am still waiting on the shippment. Their website states that they process orders within 7 business days so I should be getting a shipping notification any time now. It costs $19.99 for a 1.2 in x 9.84 ft roll and is supposedly reusable and leaves no residue. They have a couple of other options (1.2” x 16 ft, 1.9” x 16 ft). Shipping was $5.00 to Florida...not sure where they ship from though!

I’m not sure of the retail launch date quite yet, but I was just talking to BBMC about it since I’m planning on doing a comparison of different 4K dashcams and they said they should have some in about 10 days or so.

So it’s coming. :)

Loving my A119 V3 so far. I love the fact that the FOV is not ridiculously wide like the older version even though my V1 is still working which will be going in the back. The light sensitivity for night time is a lot better. WDR seems to be a lot better even when I have my bi-xenon with my dual XHP70 high beams pushing around 20,000 lumens in total darkness :)

I’m sure some will show up on YouTube eventually. I’d like to see this as well.
I don't know if it's just me but, when shopping for my first action cam I watched many comparison videos on Youtube and they were just ok in quality. Once I got the action cam and uploaded some video on my PC with a PCIe3.0 SSD and 1080ti graphics card the video was quite amazing vs. the youtube content. Not sure if this is still the case but, I'd assume if it looks good on youtube it will probably look way better when you load the videos on your computer and watch them.

Also, side note: There are tons of fake memory cards out there for cameras etc.. so, make sure you go to the manufactures website and look at their list of authorized dealers/sellers.

YouTube does a lot of compression on their videos, so that’s why the quality isn’t always there, compared to when viewing the raw file.

Yeah you got that right! IMO, everyone should research the hell out a product or company before buying anything.

My first A129 Pro camera shipment arrived from Viofo yesterday. I haven't seen the previous A129 in person, but the build quality looks great. I'm surprised how small it is, especially compared to my old Rexing S300.

Ouch. I'd rather they just didn't include a card at all. 32GB for 4K/1080p is grotesquely inadequate. I don't know if that will even last 2 hours.

Yeah the A129 4k is also on amazon now, i’m going to grab one this weekend. I absolutely adore my A129 duo that I have now, never any major issues and always reliable. Also never ate my 128gb samsung evo memory card, still going for over a year now.

I cant wait for my A129 4k to arrive!

Do the A119 v3 I am pretty impressed by. Here’s the video review of it I put up:


The A129 Pro I mounted on my WS last night alongside the Thinkware U1000, Vantrue X4, and Blackvue DR900S.

I also ordered a Rove R2-4K last night; one of the many fake 4K dashcams, and I’ll toss that up to compare too.

Vortex during operation (driving around) does the screen light up. Thats the only thing i couldnt find in my few days of research. I dont like alot of lights in my cabin when driving.

I couldn't find any reviews from you on the 129 Pro Duo. For $229, where do you put it vs. the competition?

The screen turns on at boot up and then goes to sleep after a configurable time. I have it set for 30 sec, the fastest option. If you look at the photo I just posted, you’ll see the A129’s LEDs on and the LCD off.
