Viofo A129 Single
The Viofo A129 Single is a long-awaited Wi-Fi model in the Viofo lineup. This brand is notorious for designing compact and affordable dash cameras with an outstanding "value for money" ratio and the A129 Single is no exception. Design-wise, this model resembles the 2018 year best-sellers A119/A119S but with sharper lines and an overall higher-end look and feel to it. With a larger set of accessories and affordable price, this product certainly stands out in the premium dash cam segment.
NB: Please note that this is the Single (front-only) version of the Viofo A129 dash cam. The rear camera can be added later, it is sold separately (please enquire for details). For the front-and-rear version of this dash cam, please see Viofo A129 Duo.
In the small body, the A129 Single is packed with features. It is equipped with the Sony STARVIS™ IMX291 Sensor, F1.6 Aperture Lens with 140° field of view and the hardware allowing for the highest 20 Mbit/s bitrate. The camera comes with a built-into-mount GPS receiver which allows the dash cam to log your coordinates and speed so you always have these evidence handy. When it comes to the footage playback, apart of the 2-inch LCD screen which you can use to access the dash cam's menu, you'll be able to leverage your smartphone screen by pairing it to the dash cam via a built-in Wi-Fi module. Just install the iOS or Android app on your smartphone and you'll be able to playback/download your footage or access settings within seconds. On top of this, there are a number of optional accessories available that can expand the camera functionality: 2-pin and 3-pin Hardwire Cables for a clean installation and parking recording, Battery Packs for parking recording, Polarizing Filter and Bluetooth Emergency Button.
Would you like your dash cam to operate not only while you're driving but when you're away too? The A129 has got this sorted too with Parking Recording by Motion Detection! Matching the camera with either the Viofo 3-pin Hardwire Cable (requires hardwiring) or a Back-Up Battery will allow the cam tam to trigger recording on motion detection as well as on impact detection so that protection will be readily available for the vehicle while the owner is away.
- Full HD video recording by the Sony STARVIS™ IMX291 Sensor. Crystal-clear video quality achieved by the F1.6 Aperture 7-element Glass Lens with 140° field of view.
- Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to view live video, change settings, playback and download videos to your mobile device (within a 15-metre range around the car).
- The built-into mount GPS receiver logs your vehicle’s location, speed and current time so you can later visualize its position on the map.
- Protect yourself from hit-and-run accidents while your car is parked with motion-activated Parking Mode (requires a Power Management Device).
- Low-profile and discreet design.
- Up to 256GB memory card support.
- 1-year manufacturer warranty.
