    Had once during the first few months ... check rear camera cables whether it is loose. Unplug and plug again properly.

    My experience tells me the reboot intermittently issue may be due to loose cable connection either at the front/back camera. I had this problem before but disappear after I make some adjustments to the cables for the back camera. Yes, I heard about the V7 problem before V9 purchase so wrote to Corvit who immediately reply me that they V7 motion detect is "too sensitive" and they have taken care of the issue for V9. They also advise that V7 users should set the sensitivity to low which should help. It is bad that they did not follow up on the firmware or fix the V7 issue. Fortunately, V9 indeed do not have the same problem after I install. I am not aware that the wifi dongle is an optional item during the initial purchase. If lost/faulty, I hope we can just buy the dongle alone. Sorry can't check now but I believe the lowest allowed by the settings screen on the iRoad app on my iPhone. Could be 11.8V.

    Haha .. I actually forgot about that. Thanks for reminding. I recall seeing the ID/password in the settings - any idea what would be the application for that?

    I have been using V9 since June. 1. Had it under hot sun with (parked, completely no shelter/shade except for sunshield on windscreen) for full day (8am till 6pm) every week day for a few months in new car. No overheating issue observed .. I did not care anyway but the device still working fine. The temperature in car can be extremely high most of the times during that period (July-Oct). Come to think of it, I would strongly recommend that you unplugged the power cable if you are going to park under hot sun for many hours. 2. My original voltage cut-off settings was around 12.x V. When I went for business trip for 6 days, battery did not died. I was not worry because the cut-off had always been happening after I parked for a few hours based on my observation during the first few weeks. I contribute that to my short drive each day (usually only 10+km drive before parking end of each day) so it could be battery not fully charged. Few days ago I was advised by a different installer to lower my voltage cut-off settings and it seems the camera can operating much longer now. I still need to check further the number of hours .. overnight from 5pm till next morning 7.30am seems to be no issue. Motion detect recording during parking has always been working fine. 3. Installing a on/off switch is definitely not common but make sense in view of iRoad limitation and protect the cable interface. Anyone got the on/off switch installed please share (result, photo, cost, workshop). 4. I did not remove the wifi dongle but may do that soon to reduce use of battery, and level of heat/radiation generated (all may be just assumption) since I hardly connect. Periodically I will remove the SD card and view the videos via the PC viewer, and save (selectively) a few of them to .avi files. The saved .avi files always play extremely smoothly. I replace the default 16GB with sandisk extreme 64GB to allow a few days of recording to be retained before overwriting occurs. 5. I turned off audio recording nowadays, not because it will take up additional memory space but for privacy of the recorded video if I ever need to share/publish it. The audio recordings can sometimes be quite annoying too with noisy kids. For the same privacy reason, I do not input details such as car number and my name to the camera settings otherwise they will be on the videos. Do you do the same or have different view on this? 6. Another realisation is that the wifi login does not require any password by default so potentially another person with the app installed on his mobile can actually connect/view/save your videos? I think the ID/password can be changed so will get that done. Both installers that I encountered so far never advise about ID/password. Imagine someone near your car connect to it and download your videos with all your private in-car conversations recorded as well! Hope the above sharing will help some of the potential V9 buyers to make their decision.

    I have been using V9 for 3 weeks. No experience with V7. Prior to buying V9, I wrote in through their website asking about V7 motion detect problem and whether V9 will have the same problem. The friendly Korean customer support replied as follows: "V7 and T8 have sensitive detection sensors in there, which detect even small motions and light. We usually recommend customers to adjust the setting of sensitivity low and most of cases have been fine. V9 is the latest model which was considered some advises from consumers. So, It will be fine for V9 on this matter. " So, please try changing the sensitivity setting to low if you are V7 users. I also read a lot forum users said a fix will be released bla bla bla .. not sure if there will ever be if it is a hardware design fault or if they want to promote newer model. V9 confirmed don't have the problem.

    Does it come with a button to enable/disable the function? That means it should on by default, but if I want to disable it there is a button for me to do that.

    Anyone has front sensors? Has it been useful? How much will it cost to install? The one that you indent comes with the original JBL HU?

    I was misled by conversation with two PIs that no PI here bring in the premium advance package otherwise would have go for it. I like those those advance security feature. How much is the $ difference between premium and premium advance? Did your PI bring it in only after you book?

    Price ... showroom car? Even if it is, still a good buy if the condition is as good as new and matches your preferred color ... too late for me.

    Just booked my Harrier today. My current 2L car will expire early July and I don't think COE will go down so quickly, especially with the July CEVS revision. Car at port and may take up to two months. One big item off the to do list .... next - finding a new domestic helper quickly!

    My understanding is that LTA will ensure that the PI notify its customers of any recall otherwise LTA may take legal action. During my ownership of my JDM accord, there was a recall which the PI has notified me and the fix was done without any charges. I can't remember the details of the recall.
