So I just went to pull some footage off my A139 and in the app it was showing the normal amount of clips, however the last dated clip was about 2 weeks ago. So it appears it hasn't been recording for a couple weeks, it hasn't warned of problems and gave the usual 3 channel recorded started message when I get in and the parking recording message when I get out. I formatted the card and it started recording again... I'm wondering if it was an issue cause I pulled the card to download videos and either corrupted it or maybe the temp files the video editor drops on the card messed it up so it wasn't able to overwrite... I will be monitoring it closely and checking the wife's A139 when I get home, hopefully it was just cause I corrupted something. On the positive I have the A129 plus installed still and that was working fine so I was able to get the footage from there

Thank you for this, I'm looking at another Camara system. I've been using the escort one for over three years but I would like something that's wired in and a little higher not hooked to a radar detector mount

@jestric @Bloovy One Hidden feature alert! Something I had missed before is the option to adjust the codec the camera uses to build the files. By default the camera uses h.264, but if you stop recording and then hold the mic button for 2 seconds until it beeps it switches the camera to using h.265. The main benefit you will see with h.265 are smaller files sizes for the same quality video.
