All I know is when I use the link "http://www.mini0806.com/firmware/0806firmware-160426.zip"
format the card to FAT32 put the Firmware.Bin file from the 160426 unzipped folder on the micro SD card and run the installation on the Mini0806 then bring up the settings and look at "Firmware Version" it says it is 20160104. I tried it with both an 8GB and a 64GB card and got the same results.

Insert the micro sd card into the 0806 and push the top arrow button for a second. Scroll down to format card and hit the center button to say yes to format. In couple of seconds it is finished. Take the card out and copy the firmware.bin file (vlc extension) to the micro sd card. Please do not worry about the other two files on the card. Insert the card into the slot A top side. Power up, first thing it asks whether to upgrade the firmware. Select yes. Two seconds later it is completed. Power off the unit and power on again. Same firmware upgrade notification pops up. This time say no. Now push the top button for the menu and go to format card and select yes again. There you have it Firmware Ver: 20160507 V1.0. I have four of these units and all of them are working with 64 gb cards and no issues.

The firmware.bin file actually does contain string "FW 20160104 V1.06" and in other places "Built @ Apr 26 2016" & "Administrator@mg Tue Apr 26 19:01:02 2016" - so something's wrong here. It looks like it was built on 26th of April 2016, but it identifies itself as "FW 20160104".

Getting SD card I/O error horrible alarm in a middle of the trip. Usually happens 5-10 minutes after cam start. Using Samsung 64GB formatted exFat. Format on cam left unused SD card space. Used Windows diskpart to do proper partitioning/formatting and then got the same error on cam after a few weeks of operation. SD card 48 hours pattern read/write test demonstrated no error. I have strong suspicion of firmware issue, possibly marginal operation on extreme temperatures.

Once you've installed the update, you need to remove it from the card. If the update firmware is still on the memory card when the camera starts up, it will ask if you want to install it.

I have purchased 2 of these dash cams and am having trouble with the time. I live in a time zone of GMT plus 9.5 hours but the gps always resets it, because there is no provision for half hours ahead of GMT. I have downloaded the firmware from May 2015, which includes ability to recognise half hour. After installing this firmeware the camera still will not allow me to set the time as GMT +9.5.
Any suggestions? the firmware in the cam now is

I have two of these. They are great when they work -- good pictures, small, plenty of storage capacity. But they are not reliable. I had problems with both cameras playing that three note chime 19 times, pausing, and repeating the chimes, over and over, unless plugged into the cigaret lighter in my car using the on-camera USB connector. The base just chimed. I bought replacement bases after reading that the initial batch of bases had problems, and one of them seemed to be better, but only for a short while. The 0426 firmware changed things, but didn't really fix the problems. Now it sometimes chaimes a few times, sporadically, and usually only two or three erratic chimes before going quiet for a minute or two. Sometimes it records fine, sometimes it doesn't record anything, and sometimes it records part of a drive.

I'll try the 0507 firmware, but I've given up expecting it to work reliably, and will start shopping for a replacement. I'll keep trying firmware updates, but my expectations have surrendered.

I discovered something interesting several days ago. It began is 19-times triple-chime low battery nonsense again, and I reached for it behind the rear view mirror to see what the blue and red LEDs were showing. But my hand brushed the USB cable and it stopped in mid-chime; all LEDs were off. I experimented the rest of the drive, wiggling the cable just a very little, and the slightest touch, when it was in triple-chime mode, would either shut it up or trigger the start/stop tune.

Some of the time it was recording, some not. I could not see any real pattern there.

I eventually put a 90 elbow USB connector on the base and connected the USB cable to that, and got fewer low battery chiming. I have tried several cables, and all behave the same, and all work with other equipment.

I have the USB cable coming out of the top base connector and drape it over the rear view mirror to reduce strain on the connection from the weight trying to bend it. I tried using the bottom base connector, but the cable would fall out once every few days.

I don't know the significance of this. If the connection is loose and wiggly, it could explain the low battery chiming, but I have never had any similar problems with loose wiggly connections, with these cables or with other devices. Maybe you need to spec a different connector.

I would also like a version with a capacitor instead of battery. Sometimes I go into the post office to get my mail and am only gone for a couple of minutes, but if the day is even slightly warm, the camera's position near the top of the windshield means it gets pretty warm. I am religious about taking it off the windshield and putting up a windshield shade when it will be parked for any length of time, but could even two minutes be enough to distress the battery?

I had similar issues and traced the problem to a faulty battery.

I contacted the Australian distributor and returned the device. He confirmed it was a battery issue and replaced it.

There are several sites on the internet that show how to replace the battery if yours is out of warranty, but contact the people you bought it from first.

Have just updated the fw with this update. Since then I am unable to access the menu on the cam except when on battery power.
When plugged into my pc via the usb port, screen shows, "USB connecting", & I am unable to access the menu by pressing the up button.
When plugged into just a power source the camera starts Up as normal & starts recording, but again I am unable to access the menu by pressing the Up button.

As the battery power is very limited, will there be a further update to allow accessing the memory when the camera is externally powered?

You need to stop recording first (press button in the center) then keep Up pressed for a couple of seconds.

I Found that the cam gets the Date wrong on Files written directly after discovering a GPS Sat Signal. The first Files get written with the internal datestamp then the date reverts to 30.06.2006 and then they are written with the date from the GPS signal.

So please ad some intergrity checks to the date

Also when formatting the cards in the cam, slot A is named "Untitled" and slot B ist named "NO NAME".

I thought of getting a little dash fan and aiming it at the mini0806. But I am tired of that damned low-battery chirping, and it just doesn't seem worth the hassle of trying some jury-rig like that when it hasn't really gotten hot here yet. If it is the heat, then no dash fan is going to help it later in the summer, and I don't want the fan noise either.

If heat is the problem, then maybe it's just too ambitious a dash cam and they need to revert to a lower resolution or frame rate once it gets warm, rather than whine about low battery. I'd prefer lower frame rate if that's a choice.

I found the following.
- When camera start recording and I press de "ok" button to stop recording It just hung. not responding until battery is drained so I cannot access the menu. Video still refreshing but leds freezes and the waiting points over the image freezes too.
- After the update I tryed to set the LDWS and it only has on/off setting. It will be nice to have off/low/medim/high setting as manual said.
- Half hour is not available in time settings.
Hope the info will be valueable and problems can be fixed.

The dashcam works when the SD cards are newly formatted. If the cards are full, spins the dashcam.

Hi!
I installed this firmware on my german Mini806-Pro. I must say it is the first firmware that I tried which really runs smooth and without bugs.
E.g. I always had the problem, that the camera didn't save for several seconds, sometimes even minutes, although I have used the recommended Samsung EVO Cards and even a lower quality setting.
Now with this firmware the issue is solved! :)
Is this an official firmware, or a "hacked one"? Is the source-code somewhere available?

I can not believe how flimsy this dashcam is. I have had all sorts of trouble with this. The most common is i/o Storage errors with every cards i used, i even tried the most expensive ones from SanDisk. Sometimes it just fails and beeps non stop and other times it will record video, but not sound.

These bugs should have been fixed a long time ago, i bought this camera december 2015, and have tried multiple firmwares ever since. This firmware will be the last before it goes to the garbage bin! And i buy a proper dashcam.
I am sorry that i can't recommend this camera to others, because i really wanted to like this camera. Has great video quality and nice features, but it is simply not stable enough.

Well i have just tried the newest firmware, and the camera shut down after about 25 minutes of recording. It could only start up again after about 15 minutes

It got kinda hot to touch as it sat in my apartment at a comfortable 20 degrees, so it shouldnt be because of external heat, but i believe it is the main problem this camera has. It has poor heat insulation, shuts down in a NON proper way, and give errors like i/o storage error, corrupted files etc.

It however recorded fine when i was cruising along in the cooler evening.
But non the less camera has serious issues, and i don't think they can fix them with firmware updates...

I will be looking into the Streetguardian ie. SG9665GC as a replacement, as i can understand this camera is getting good reviews, and are much more resilient and stable.

I live in the UK so you wouldn't think overheating would be an issue but it is, it runs for about 1hr then locks up , less if the sun is shining

I made some bigger holes in the sides to help cool it but that hasn't made any difference

only thing I can think of is gluing a little fan on the side of it

very very poor for the price, don't get me wrong the picture is ace but not much use if you have a bang and find out it locked up 10 minutes before !

I left mine on in a car park , came back found my bumper scraped , went to my camera only to find it locked up grrrrrrr!

I have 4 of these useless little bricks, which I bought because of their large capacity claim to use as full-time security. I notice that these days the manufacturer is claiming 256Gb card capability.
THIS IS A BLATANT LIE. They don't even handle 128Gb for much more than 1 full cycle; I eventually purchased 64Gb cards which have quickly presented the exact same problems. I even tried this 'new; upgrade which (as fully expected) has completely failed to make any difference.
It isn't just incapable of overwriting its own recording, even formatting them itself makes no difference - Storage 10 Error, or just an electronic scream with no message at all requiring removal from power & wrapping in a coat till the battery runs flat.
All cards Are high speed, marked Class 10 & I, a Reputable brand from a Reputable store & purchasing 16 of them in two different sizes has been Bloody Expensive!
I also had the problem that they shut down just before an incident, in my case the third vehicle break-in in 6 weeks which is a helluva lot worse than a scraped bumper but Stef has my sympathies anyway.
I don't know why Mini keeps pretending 'after-sales service' when so many people consistently prove the shoddyness of the product - a proper company would take their crap back under warranty but the only way to get faulty chinese goods returned is to go to China In Person! I have the assurances of every international mail carrier available in my city on that - say 'China' & they practically escort you to the door, it's so much political hassle.

If I'm not mistaken there is a correlation between not switching cards during recording and lack of option "Auto" when choosing cards in "Video Playback" and "Photo Viewer". When in "Video Playback" I'll choose "Card A Only" camera records only on card A, the same when card B is marked.
Can any developer input "Auto" mode there to see if it'll record on both cards, please?

I just installed the latest. First thing I have noticed is when I turn the power on as I sit here it starts recording which is normal. I hit "ok" to pause or stop the recording to hit the "up" button to go into settings but it wont let me. Soon as I hit ok to stop the recording, it stops for a second and starts recording again. 1 out of 10 times I can finally get into settings but now I have a lot of 1 or 2 second video's on the card.

Bought new 806 2 months ago.Keeps displaying low battery regardless how long it has been charged since the beginning and shuts down right away when not powered.i think battery is dead.Since installed in vehicle powered from cigarette lighter I noticed it intermittently did not start when vehicle ignition was turned on:blue light on,red light on but not blinking,keys inoperable,need to reboot from device switch to operate correctly.i just upgraded to new firmware.it is now worse.Systematically does not start:blue light on,red on no blinking and need to reboot.is that issue caused by dead battery or firmware?

I also had a minor problem with a Kingston card that had a gold "quality" sticker on the underside. Card would not eject properly and had to be helped out with tweezers. My advice is to peel off the sticker first.

Hi,
If someone could help me.
My camera was working perfectly but had some bugs like never showing the current time and not going automatically the the second card when first was full.
So I came here to download the firmware.
After downloading it, I copied it to my sd card's root and put it back in the camera.
And than the camera won't turn on at all. It never asked me to upgrade. It never even shown anything because the screen never turned on again. It does not record. The only thing is that when I power it the blue light turns on. I still can read the card and the card is in perfect shape. All buttons do nothing when pressed or pressed and hold.
What the frick did happen?

There's a TIME BUG in the code, for instance if i set it to -6 GMT, it will print 12 as the hour but it is 1 because of DST, once the GPS autoupdates. So maybe the camera doesn't correctly know the DST dates?

Hi,

I have successfully updated the firmware to version 2016.5.07 but am still having problems with I/O errors. Reading all the comments here it is obvious there is something wrong with the hardware or firmware of the Mini0806 that still needs fixing.

NOT ALL issues can be blamed on the memory cards. I am a computer professional and NEVER have I seen the amount of problems in other devices that this dashcam is having.

I only use my Mini0806 while driving, It is set to the highest resolution and to overwrite existing files when the card is full. I have the GPS unit and live in Far North Queensland, Australia where the termperature is normally 25-35 degrees Celcius. The car air conditioning runs all the time. The camera does get quite hot but I don't think that is causing any problems.

After updating the firmware the dashcam did not have any errors until the memory card was almost full. If I delete all files (or format) the card it works fine until the card is almost full. (Card is a sandisk 64GB XC1).

It looks like you need to update how the firmware works with full memory cards.

Another thing, the alarm noise is extremely annoying. Is there any way to turn off the sound alarm? Or make less loud? (Having this noise bleeping at you is not good for driving safely)

Regards
Alan

P.S. I am looking forward to a new firmware release that will fix how the mini0806 handles memory.

Yesterday, I've read this
3, power on with low battery, the camera will alarm long time and not record - solved, and because I have that problem, I've updated my firmware.
Today the camera stopped again the same way. Long sound, the record LED is ON all the time and the camera is not recording. Also it doesn't response to any button I press. The only response is to turn on the display when I press the power button. But I can't turn it off with long press on the power button or make it record again or anything else. I just have to wait. After a while the camera turns off all by it self and then I can start it again. The strange thing is that the battery indicator was showing full battery.

The problem with feedback is that generally you only get posts where people have problems. I for instance do not post on each update as I have no issues so it all looks pretty one sided and bad for the 0806.

I have had mine for about a year. The firmware is not the latest. Sure mine does not record on A and B as I imagined it would but I have 64gb cards installed so its not really been a show stopper for me.

My 0806 has only failed once and that was the power spring pin on the mount, this was easily fixed and apart from that, I have been really impressed with the quality of the recordings, bot day and night shots are very clear. Its a tiny cam so sits behind my rear view mirror and I cannot even see it in position.

just my opinion

Since it's only been mentioned once and may not have been clear, the update does not handle full card looping correctly. That's why the camera starts beeping and having errors when the card is full. I have been getting fragment errors, but others seem to get I/O errors.

I have my camera set to use 5 minute segments, which means that it is supposed to automatically remove the oldest clips when the card is full. But this does not work correctly, and the camera instead reports I/O or fragment errors when the card is full.

You probably have .bin files associated with VLC Player. Some movies are in a disk image format with a BIN file extension.

You can ignore that and just put the file on your memory card. The camera doesn't care what your computer thinks the file is.

Is there any newer FW version about to be released, or not anymore? Even the latest one (from september 2016, which is not even available here for download) is not as it's supposed to be and still struggles to write to both uSD cards correctly after switch-over, actually the earlier FW version (from may 2016) seems to be more reliable and doesn't fail so often...
