3.   Import button

5.   Movie Information

Each item in the list shows the movie filename, movie duration, file size, file date, and maximum speed. Note that the file date is retrieved from the file system so if the file was modified in any way the date displayed here may not correspond to the actual date/time of the recording.

6.   Currently-playing movie

The currently-playing movie has a green background. Double-click on any active (non-gray) movie to make it the currently-playing movie.

7.   Checkered Flag

The checkered flag is awarded to the movie with the fastest speeds. Sorry, no prizes are given.

8.   Wrench icon

The wrench icon appears next to movies whose GPS data needed some kind of post-processing. Hover the mouse on top of the icon to see a short explanation. Possible reasons for seeing the wrench icon include:

  • Bad GPS time stamp detected
  • Bad GPS position datum detected
  • Bad speed value detected
  • Missing GPS data detected

9.   Active/Inactive Checkbox

Clicking the checkbox off makes the movie inactive. Inactive movies are removed from the playback sequence and are shown with a gray background in the list. Their GPS data is also removed from the Map route and Graphs. Use this feature to remove uninteresting movies from the playback sequence. Click the checkbox on to make the movie active again.

10.     Double-Click Movie Item

You can double-click an active movie item in the list to jump to it. If playback was previously on, the movie will start playing immediately.

  • Added support for Viofo A119, firmware 2.0.
  • Updated the User’s Manual.

    • Yes, Robert, it does although there are multiple variations of A119 firmware that encoded the GPS data differently. Version 2.5.1 will do a better job at handling the idiosyncrasies of the A119 encoded GPS data.
