  1. Created easy to understand tutorial on How to Install BCHobbyist MODs on A129, A119S, A119Pro, A119 Dash Cameras. The binary MOD files must be Renamed without changing the last three letter file extension. Hopefully this video makes things easier to understand. See if you can notice which camera has a mismatched part.

  2. Thank you, however, I fell asleep numerous times attempting to watch the whole thing, lol. THAT MUSIC! OMG! LOL Or do you have subliminal hypnotic messages hidden in the audio, lol. "Your eyes are getting heavy", "Your eyes are getting heavier and heavier". haha

  3. Thanks for the tutorial in video which can be more understandable to some of us than when only in writing. Also thanks for the assistance on DCT this morning- ATB!

  4. No Dash Cameras were destroyed in the making of this Tutorial but required 1 snow storm and 4 Espresso stimulant injections just to correctly orient the verbiage for maximum audience absorption and retention chosen by well compensated focus group.

  5. Finally, Even I can Understand what your Doing, as I'm Not a Programmer. Now I'll Update my A119s's, and A119… I have an A119s that is F1.8 and the Other is an F1.6,(not a Pro) any Problems to look For….. Thanks for the Clear instructions…. Note, the F1.6 was sent to me by Viofo(China) as a Defect Replacement, But Identical, other wise….
