The A129 is the highly anticipated 2-channel dash cam offered by Viofo. It takes advantage of the Sony Exmor R Starvis Image Sensor along with a new and improved lens to offer Full HD on both front and rear cameras at 30 frames per second. With the VIOFO app, taking out the memory card will no longer be necessary as it provides live preview, video download and playback, and settings adjustment. It also offers a 2" HD screen which allows for easy setup and playback of videos as a convenient alternative to using the VIOFO app.

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.

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.

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.

So far it’s a nice camera. Nothing bad has happened to need it. Hope nothing will
Daytime, front camera video is awesome, really loving the quality when I was spot checking some files. The rear camera is crisp too, even though it's 1080. Haven't really checked night vision videos as much yet. Wiring was easy, and though I bought the fuse power kit, I ended up going for an OBD power cable from Amazon which worked great! Now for the quirks:
1. The unit's built-in wifi was basically non-functional for me. I sat in the car fiddling with it for almost 20mins and never could get a single file to download to my phone. It would just take forever. Finally gave up, took the microSD card out, and put it in a computer -- all files were immediately available. Never tried the wifi again.
2. Been using the camera for maybe a month now, and just experienced my first crash. Pulling time stamps from the video files, seems like it happened around noontime while the car was parked (one corrupted video file with that timestamp, followed by the next video right around the time I fixed it - a lapse of about 8hrs). Got the indication when the screen (normally off) was on and I saw what looked like vertical streaks instead of a front view. Pushing buttons didn't do anything so it seemed like the entire unit was unresponsive and showing garbage on screen. Had to power cycle the camera. The rear view is in a PIP window and, I noticed after the main unit power cycle, it came out black. So I ended up power cycling the rear camera too. After both power cycles, the video for both was showing in the screen again and things seemed to go back to normal.
