How long can I record for with my VIOFO A129 Pro before the footage is deleted?

BlackboxMyCar OM Updated by BlackboxMyCar OM

VIOFO A129 Pro Series (Including VIOFO A129 Pro Duo and A129 Pro)

The default compression used for the A129 Pro is the common H.264 codec. However, VIOFO has included a hidden H.265 HEVC codec option. Both codecs provide different max recording times per different SD Card Size.

To access the hidden H.265 HEVC codec you will have to:

  1. Stop Recording by pressing the record button
  2. Long press the MIC button for 4 seconds
  3. When an SD card icon appears on the left side of the screen, H.265 is enabled

These tables show the available recording quality setting and recording time for our bestselling VIOFO dashcams.
