    Viofo A119 v3 - what’s this film used for?

    For Christmas I received an updated dashcam. As the title reads, I was uncertain what the purpose of this film is... I do not recall this film being included with my older A119. The owners manual doesn’t seem to make any mention of it as well.

    Viofo mounts / GPS base compatibility? “119 model line”

    Was considering upgrading my dash cam from the 119A Pro, to the V3, as I understand the 60fps is a noticeable improvement. Are the GPS bases interchangeable? Under accessories on Viofos webpage they list have two different listing (didn’t see a model #), but they appear very similar. Anyone...

    I am looking to transition from the cigarette lighter/barrel plug to the included hardwire kit with the PIN. I am not finding any documentation regarding polarity and what wire is negative/positive. Sorry if this has been addressed already (I tried the search function). Can I assume the cored...

    R3 Bogey Tone: K Band?

    I know the R3 now has a bogey tone when picking up an additional KA signal while already alerting to a KA signal. Does the same hold true to K Band? A concern/encounter I recently had made me ponder this. I was following a late model Honda Accord and the R3 was alerting to 24.2xx. I...

    SmartCord - RJ12 Plug

    Not certain if anyone else has had to replace the plug/terminal on their SmartCord. The release clip that provides tension broke off of my smart cord. I purchased the following MonoPrice 6P6C RJ12 Plug, however this plug is shorter than the Escort, and the pins do not align when I try to...

    Lamin-X or similiar protective film on sensor heads?

    I was wondering if installing a clear headlamp film (like Lamin-X), over the parking sensor heads would have any adverse impact to performance? My thought is similiar to the concept behind the TMG’s replaceable lens covers. The Lamin-X film would absorb the majority of the road debris and...

    Mirror Tap: RD & Dash Cam

    Note to Mods: Please feel free to move, if this should be in the install section. Just wanted to share what arrived in the mail today. I’ve previously used a rear view mirror power tap from Safe-N-Sound, and then had my dash cam wiring run up the A pillar, and hidden by the headliner...

    Redline EX & R3 vs Stationary 33.8

    Yesterday during my lunch break, I encountered a traffic message trailer that was apparently sampling traffic velocity with a 33.8ish signal (it tended to drift while I was completing my runs). I completed 3 passes (all that time permitted): First pass was Redline EX, FW 1.3 - Segmented...

    R3 Mute Memory Functionality / Clarification Question

    Was reading up on the FW 1.36 updates, and came across the following: I’m not a R3 user, and like learning about the different features between RDs and manufacturers. What I am trying to understand is how does this feature work? From my initial research on the R3, it offered I believe 200...

    Benefits of LNA?

    Just reading through different threads, and have seem some references to “LNA”. I can’t determine what this stands for (did not find it in the achronymn posting, and via search I just found additional references). I was hoping someone could provide what LNA stands for and its benefits. Thanks!

    Dector Tools Pro - questions...

    So, I’ve picked up an Redline EX, and understand the only way to update it is via DT Pro. (Not really sure why its called “Pro”, when there is absolutely a huge loss of functionality when compared to DT). My questions are: 1) Is anyone aware of how to “back-up” their marked locations? 2) How...

    R3: GPS Database

    Was looking to understand what data points Unidens GPS database contains. Is it limited to red light cameras and speed cameras? I was specifically looking for identification of known speed traps/aircraft enforcement. Additionally can you toggle what alerts you receive? For example, I am...

Lets remove price from this discussion and focus on the benefits/feature set of the different...
