Can of worms?

2 comments

I’ve just shelled out over £300 for the K2 system and been reading the K2 posts and now I’m worried that any of my files will be there in case of an accident??? Not fitted yet thinking of bagging it all up and returning it!

Why do you have such worries? Below is the message we received today from one customer.

 

I wanted to send a note to compliment the k2 camera system. It was effective in capturing near missed and a fatal accident. It was so instrumental that 2 members of my family purchased the k2 for their bikes.

 

The reliability is priority always, Every camera system had been tested 60 times in 4 hours for start and stop to be sure it is running stable.

I have ridden thousands of miles with the K2 system, and have had no issues with the files being recorded. There are none missing.

 

If someone thinks files are "missing", it's probably that they're stored in the "PARK" folder. Be sure to look there too; whenever the "g sensor" is triggered, the files get stored in the PARK folder (which is where the system puts files whenever it thinks there's been a collision, so the files won't get erased; the problem is that the sensor is way too sensitive so anything like a pothole will trigger the "g sensor.")

 

The K2 system does have some issues, but it's proven to be very reliable so far.

  • Had the K2 for 5 days now. Overall its pretty good. I have a few issues that I need to look into. 1 - The lens seems to black out in the bottom (say 4 and 8 O'Clock) A bit like the lens has Glaucoma... 2 - I start my bike, put helmet, gloves on, ride off, but recording doesn't start until I am a few miles away, has to be at least 5 minutes after setting off, and maybe 6 minutes after starting the bike. An I supposed to wais 6 minutes before setting off? 3 - I have to do something with how I transfer the files, WiFi just doesn't cut it. My bike (R1250GS Adventure) automatically powers off after X minutes, not sure exactly how many, to preserve the battery, the WiFi hasn't managed to transfer a 3 minute file before the bike powers off. I cant view from the bike, stream, as it doesn't stream, it just jitters from frame to frame. I have an iPhone XS Max if that makes any difference. So far I have not been able to download or view any recording, only when setting up on live view. On the plus side, it only took 30 minutes to set up on the bike, only having to remove the tank panel. Does anyone have any thoughts on my three issues?
  • After the firmware v61 update, I noticed the blue light on the power transformer never goes off - no matter how long the bike is off. Is this normal? What could possibly be powering this other than my battery?
  • I'm at a slight disadvantage, as my bike is still in a container ship, travelling back to the US, but I'll see if I can make my point clearly enough. I've been told that if I connect to the K2, using WiFi, and the K2 App on my cell phone, that the time would be correctly set within the K2. I'm afraid that this is not correct, at least it's not correct under a few sets of circumstances. First of all, in certain parts of the world, you need to set your phone to override the current time, and set it manually. For instance, all of China uses a single timezone (Beijing time), but my iPhone got confused, and thought that there were multiple time zones, and so, I had to override the time setting. As a result, although I connected my iPhone to the K2WiFi, and then enabled the IOS app, and selected settings, I still ended up with a situation where the time on the K2 was at least 1 hour different from the time on my phone. Throughout my trip, I often tried to get the time of the K2 to be properly set, and I think that I achieved it only once. In all other cases, it was between 1 and 2 hours off. So, my question is, why don't you allow me to set the time, or select the time zone within the K2, rather than relying on using the Phone? As IOS versions on the phone change, it is likely that they'll handle time zones differently, perhaps forcing you to make odd choices in some cases, but if I was able to manually set the time zone in the K2, we eliminate any chance that the system will have the wrong time. The outcome, if you want to set the time, connect to the K2 over WiFi, set the time, and exit. It's just about perfect, and it addresses all of the possible irregularities that exist as we travel around the world. Thoughts?
