Viofo A129 Duo
The Viofo A129 Duo is a long-awaited front+rear 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 Duo is no exception. Design-wise, this model resembles the best-sellers A119 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.
Unlike most dual-channel cameras, the A129 Duo does not treat its rear camera as a second-class citizen. Not only does the rear lens feature the same high-end Sony STARVIS™ IMX291 Sensor, it also saves footage at the same as the front cam's highest 16.5 Mbit bitrate with 140° field of view. It also supports loop recording and a higher level of customization when it comes to the fragment size, allowing you to save footage in 1, 2, 3, 5 or 10-minute clips.
In the small body, the A129 Duo is packed with features. 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 from 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 and 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 also when you're away? The A129 Duo has got this sorted with Parking Recording by Motion and Impact Detection! Matching the camera with either the Viofo 3-pin Hardwire Cable (requires hardwiring) or a Back-Up Battery allows the cam tam to trigger recording on motion 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 Sensors on both cameras. Crystal-clear video quality achieved by the F1.6 Aperture 7-element Glass Lens.
- 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 Power Management Device).
- Built-in microphone and speaker.
- Low-profile and discreet design.
- Up to 256GB memory card support.
- 1-year manufacturer warranty.
