Update: No apparent way to delete event videos without physically removing the sd card. A big flaw in the app. Original: After a couple days of use I have to admit that this is a robust app for controlling the camera. There are a couple of additional features I would like to see though. For example, saving recorded videos to the external SD card in your smartphone.
The hardware is excellent but this application almost makes me return the camera. It's slow it constantly crashes on my pixel XL it's not intuitive. They need a complete rewrite of the software. That would bolster them too much higher sales.
What a terrible app for such a great dashcam. As others before me have stated, this camera is plagued with connectivity issues, playback issues, and download to internal memory issues. I don't understand how it can be that bad when you're literally right next to the camera with an excellent connection. One of the key selling points of this camera was to playback an accident to a police officer or insurance company when there is potential for the assignment of fault to go either way, thereby protecting yourself. How can you do that when it refuses to connect or when it takes ages to buffer or just refuses to download to your phone? The officer isn't going to wait forever. Stop releasing firmware updates for different languages and for minor bug fixes and work on WiFi issue, it's seriously dragging the potential of this camera down. Trust me, you don't need to another language update, something being crap is universally understood.
I have just spent over 2 hours trying to get a file to copy to internal memory. It sits on 0% and will NOT under any circumstances copy to internal memory. I have tried updating all software and firmware - I have tried downloading the files on my parent's camera, and off of my own camera - still this stupid app WILL NOT WORK and I'M FURIOUS. It's not the CAMERA'S PROBLEM - IT'S THIS USELESS FKN APP. I go to 'Internal Memory' and I try to create a new folder - it FAILS to create folder EVERY TIME. I will be contacting the people I bought my THREE CAMERAS FROM - and I'll be pushing for A FULL REFUND. If the app doesn't work, I can't use the features I PAID FOR (three times - I have three of these fkn now useless cameras). NOT IMPRESSED - GO BUY SOMETHING ELSE. I'M DONE RECOMMENDING THIS CAMERA TO PEOPLE. NEVER AGAIN.
Horribly hard to use - even if you're tech savvy. They need to fire the coders that put this thing together. It's nowhere near the quality of the actual dash cam.
Watching a recording and/or downloading to phone fails 70% of the time and is extremely slow. Being able to view the footage on the spot in case of an accident is a a key functionality in my opinion.
