Dashcam Viewer v2.7.0 Released for Mac and Windows

Dashcam Viewer v2.7.0 is now available from our website. This version add a number of improvements to optimize window positioning.

New Features:

  • The Map, Dashboard, Graph, and Control Center windows now float above the Main movie window. This allows you to maximize the size of Main window and overlay the ancillary windows on top. Previously, the ancillary windows would be hidden beneath the Main window. This change allows for more dynamic and efficient Dashcam Viewer window configurations.
  • When Dashcam Viewer is put to the background, the ancillary windows will hide. They will come back when DV is brought to the foreground.
  • The Map window can now be shrunk horizontally to a very small size.
  • The Dashboard window can be shrunk horizontally to show only the speedometer and not the other widgets.

Dashcam Viewer v2.6.7 Released for Mac and Windows

Dashcam Viewer v2.6.7 is now available from our website. Please see below for a list of new capabilities and fixes. Download the free version from our website.

New Features:

  • You can now change color and size of vehicle map marker, or use the default marker icon.

Change the vehicle marker type, color, and size in the Preferences window.

  • DJI drone SRT files: speed values are now smoothed. While it’s great that DJI conveniently logs the drone’s flight data into an SRT file, the speed of the drone is not written to the file and the latitude and longitude values are not stored in high precision. Dashcam Viewer uses the time-stamped lat/lon values to estimate the speed. The lack of precision means the speed varies somewhat wildly. This modification smooths out some of the unwanted variations.

Synchronized playback of DJI Mavic Pro video and trajectory data in Dashcam Viewer.

  • Export GPX: Improved compatibility of GPX files with other programs such as Garmin BaseCamp.
  • Updated user’s manual.
