Frequently Asked Questions

The only models I have tested against are on the home page. Other models may or may not work.

If your dashcam movies do not play in DCV or you don’t see any GPS data displayed, I may be able to make it work — if you help me. You’ll need to send me a ‘clone’ or zip of your camera’s SD card disk image. The clone should contain at least 3 movies and associated GPS data files.

Some dashcams use separate files for the videos and the GPS data. In that case, the file/folder structure of the clone must be preserved. For example, the Mini 0801 stores its movie and GPS data like so:

SD Card
 |--- DCIM
   |--- 100MEDIA
     |--- AMBA0462.MOV 
     |--- AMBA0463.MOV 
 |--- MISC
 |--- gps
   |--- gps0462.log
   |--- gps0463.log

Zip a copy of the entire SD Card folder. Also, please provide your dashcam’s firmware version. You can send me the zip via WeTransfer. My email is john@earthshinesw.com.

You first purchase a license using the PayPal links on the home page. Within 24 hours (usually a lot quicker) you will receive a personalized registration code. You enter the code into the Dashcam Viewer program. Click here for more info or watch the registration video.

A common question I hear is: “Is this a one-time payment or will I have to purchase a yearly subscription?” I personally despise subscription-ware! Since version 1.0 was released in 2016, I’ve provided free updates for everyone and I have no plan to change this policy.

After the software unlock key is emailed to you, there are no refunds. Please use the Free version to verify the software works to your liking before purchasing the Plus or Pro version.
