The A119 is a compact 1-Channel dashcam from the renowned dash cam manufacturer Viofo. This is one of the top-reviewed dashcams of late-2016 and combines a sleek design with high quality components and amazing video quality. It takes advantage of the latest Novatek 96660 chipset and OmniVision OV4689 video sensor to deliver 2K (2560 x 1440) recording at 30 frames per second. These high end components are paired with a super capacitor and plenty of cooling vents on the A119's discreet body that makes it an ideal choice for hotter climates. The A119 is also equipped with a 2.0" screen, a user-friendly button interface, and a GPS antenna that's built into the adhesive mount.

What is Parking Mode?
Parking mode is offered on most of the dash cams available at BlackboxMyCar. While it is important to protect your vehicle while driving, it is just as important to have your vehicle protected while it is parked. When the dash cam is in parking mode, footage will only be saved when there is an impact and/or motion. Parking mode can be enabled with a hardwiring kit or a battery pack.
For more information on parking mode, click here.
What is a Hardwire Kit?
A hardwiring kit enables parking mode. It allows your dash cam to remain powered on even when the vehicle's ignition is turned off. Installation is a breeze as you will only need to find an accessory fuse, constant fuse, and a grounding point.
What is a Battery Pack?
Most customers purchase the battery pack to avoid using the vehicle’s battery to power their dash cam. The battery pack is charged by either being hardwired into an accessory fuse or by being plugged into one of the vehicle's 12-volt cigarette sockets. We recommend the hardwiring the battery pack as it charges the battery pack quicker.

How much footage will my memory card store?

Do I need a Rear Camera?
Accidents or events don't always happen at the front of the vehicle! Having a rear camera provides coverage for any events or accidents that may happen at the rear of the vehicle.
For more information on rear view cameras, click here.
Do I need a IR Rear Camera?
An IR camera is designed to record the interior of the vehicle in low light conditions. This option is very popular among rideshare drivers.

What is a CPL filter?
A CPL filter attaches to the dash cam lens to eliminate lens flares, light reflections, and windshield glares.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
The dash cam installed very easy (looked at a couple You Tube examples) and the setup was a snap. The quality of the picture was as good as the examples - a good thing. Very happy with the product.
Two years ago, I ordered this as my first dash cam after a driver plowed their minivan into my new car when they went out of turn at a 4-way stop. This dash cam gave me some peace of mind for a little over a year, until just after the warranty ran out. In that time period I had purchased an additional one for my wife, advised my brother to get one for his new pickup truck, and helped my dad order one for his semi. Their cameras are all still working thankfully.
Mine started to reset randomly after the warranty was up, but there seemed to be a correlation to the temperature (at first). At this point I've tried using it with or without the GPS mount and with different cables and power sources, but I can't pinpoint the issue. I think internals of the camera itself are to blame, possibly a failure due to extreme temperatures. The camera frequently refuses to power on, or when it does power on, will reset at least once while driving.
For the money, this little camera offers the best image quality for the price and even more so with the CPL filter. You can spend 3-4x more on a "higher-end" camera, but you're still sitting on a one year warranty with most offerings. The GPS mount connection pins are very easily bent, which is cause for concern every time you need to slide the dash cam off. Viofo's website is a little janky for grabbing the firmware, and at times they have forgotten to update their certificate so their site gets flagged as potentially unsafe/malicious. I've setup and installed several of these things at this point and that part is easy enough. When the camera has been on, I've never caught it not recording video. When there's an issue with the microSD card, it will beep at you until you've resolved it.
I'm torn between buying the "value" oriented cameras like this more frequently and dealing with the shortcomings vs. a higher-end model and hoping for the best on longevity. The cost difference can be huge, with no longer guarantee of usefulness.
I have two of these cameras, one facing forward on the windshield and one in the back window facing back.
I was t boned and rear ended. hence two cameras.
Client service is fantastic anytime I have called with a question they are knowledgeable, friendly, and can communicate at my level.
