New Camera Supports:

  • Added support for Thinkware F800Pro Dual-Channel dash cam

Bug Fixes:

  • [Mac version] The Reset View button (or double-clicking in the movie) will now also reposition and resize the 2nd channel PiP window to the top left corner of the main window.
  • [Mac version] Default map type is now MAPQUEST since Google changed something with their Maps service that prevents Dashcam Viewer from rendering any graphic elements onto the map (no placemarks, routes, etc.).

Dashcam Viewer v2.7.7 Released for Mac and Windows

Dashcam Viewer v2.7.7 is now available for download. Changes in this version include:

New Features:

  • Added “real-time” Line-Of-Sight (LOS) and Route distance computations to the Geotags list items. This LOS distance provides current LOS distance between the geotag point and the current vehicle location (including altitude differences if altitude data is available). The Route computation displays the distance along the route between the geotag position and the current vehicle location.

The LOS and Route metrics show the “real-time” distance to the vehicle from the geotag point.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed bug that would ignore clicks in the Altitude plot.

  • Added support for KDLinks R100 (note: this dashcam produces no GPS data. Thanks Brian M.)
  • Added support for DJI drones in which the GPS data is embedded into movie file (in SRT format). It seems that DJI plays fast and lose with the SRT format. There are many variations of it.

  • [Mac version] Fixed bug which would prevent Dashcam Viewer from running on pre-10.11 operating systems.

Please quit and restart Dashcam Viewer after making a change to this setting.

Dashcam Viewer v2.7.2 Released for Mac and Windows

Dashcam Viewer v2.7.2 is now available from our website. This version adds the following enhancements:

New Features:

  • Users can now compensate for dash cams that do not store their GPS data in UTC-relative time. Entering the correct UTC offset in the Preferences->Advanced tab will apply the correction such that UTC timestamps will no longer be displayed in Local time when exporting to CSV or GPX files. This will not affect the timestamp at the top of the movie window but will affect the output of CSV, GPX, and KML files. In addition, you can now specify the Local Time offset from UTC when exporting data to CSV file.
  • Made Preferences window modal so multiple instances will not clutter the screen.
  • Improved load speed for NextBase 412G
  • Added more verbose explanations of GPS data processing errors (these explanations appear when the mouse is hovered over the wrench symbol in the Movies and Geotags window).
  • Added Chinese translation (thanks, Ming Z!)

New Features:

  • You can now orient the Dashboard window vertically or horizontally to optimize your window configuration.

Orient the Dashboard window vertically or horizontally using the Window menu option. Previously, only horizontal mode was supported.

New Camera Supports:

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed bug in which the window positions would not be remembered if the application was brought to the background and then back to the foreground.
  • Fixed bug in which .gpx or .dat files would be ignored when loading movie files of the same base name. For example, if a movie named 2017_08_20.MP4 were collocated with a corresponding 2017_08_20.GPX file, the GPX file would have been ignored. Now it will be loaded and paired with the movie. This was a recently introduced bug.
