Dashcam Viewer v1.8.2 Released for Mac and Windows

We just released Dashcam Viewer v1.8.2 for Macintosh and Windows. This is a maintenance release to fix a few bugs:

Bug Fixes:

  • Dashboard: Fixed bug in which the compass car icon appear to do random 360’s when traveling south
  • Fixed bug in bearing direction for Panorama S and Street Guardian SGZC12SG
  • Falcon Zero F170: To workaround a bug in the F170 firmware speed computation, DCV now ignores the embedded speed values and instead computes speed based on sequential lat/lon points. This produces more accurate speed reading than the embedded speed. However, there is another firmware glitch in which the video overlaid speed lags the actual vehicle motion by about 2-3 seconds. DCV can do nothing about this. It will need to be fixed by the manufacturer in firmware.
