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 interior 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.

Would I buy one again? Yes. FromBlack box ? Yes
This camera is so awesome! it can see in total darkness in Uber/Lyft cabs. the resolution is incredible. It can show what customer left an object/keys in your car so you can get them back to them quickly.
If you have problems with riders stealing stuff, like your tip jar...this camera makes them think twice. Also has saved me from riders who tend to exaggerate and ask that you ignore the GPS, and then they try to get their money back....not anymore... Camera captures license plates late at night....and even captured someone backing into my car causing an accident. She admitted fault, and the audio was captured. perfect camera for both your passengers and for your personal protection.
I drive for Uber and Lyft, primarily at night. I needed a high quality dash cam with an IR interior camera. This is a great option.
The design of the camera body makes it very stealthy that you can't see the camera much or at all from be outside of the vehicle. With the separate interior and exterior cams, you have the flexibility to mount these cameras wherever you want. Ironically, I ended up mounting both cameras within an inch of each other. The sturdy mount on each camera does not allow for left-right adjustment. So, in order to get symmetrical FOVs you'll have to center both cameras near each other, near the center of the windshield (unless of course, you have another suitable location or application in mind). At the time of my review, Viofo's app is average at best. Do not attempt to update the firmware of the A129 Duo IR through the app, doing so will disable the IR lights and you'll have to revert back to the stock firmware V1.0 manually. Check Viofo's website for updates later than V1.0 before checking or updating your camera through the app.
Exterior daytime and nighttime footage is great. Interior daytime footage is great as well. Interior nighttime footage is good Ambient lighting from streetlights, others' headlights and such help make footage just outside the car visible. i say that because the IR lights produce such a tight beam of visibility inside the car although the total FOV is much larger. I drive XL so proper mounting is important to illuminate all the way to the third row seating. This camera does well in that regard too.
Standard installation was a breeze for me as this was not my first day cam. The cord from cam-to-cam is a little thicker but you'll be able to hide it even if you have to "double up" or run it next to the power cord. The manual shows the main camera being mounted on the passenger side of the rear view mirror. You'll want it close to you depending on where your steering wheel is lol. The L-shaped connectors may make wir...
