Today I downloaded all of the vids from my K2. That's when I noticed that all of the settings were of the default, and NOT the ones I had set it to. It was now on TS format (instead of mp4), KPH (instead of MPH), and 1 min loop, (instead of 3 min). I had done a search of the forums and saw that a battery inside the DVR could be the culprit. But I've only had the K2 for about 2 months, and the battery should last a lot longer than that unless mine was on a shelf for a long time. How long should the battery in the DVR last?It could have reverted back to default settings after an app update. It shouldn't, but it could. It could have reverted back to defaults after disconnecting the battery to do about an hours worth of work to put on new fog lights. (That would indicate the DVR battery doesn't last very long.) But it shouldn't revert back with a 2 month old unit.
Some little critter could have crawled under the seat, opened the rubber protector over the reset button and pressed it, but I don't think that happened.Whatever caused my settings to revert back to default settings is a mystery. BUT... I don't like to have to keep checking to make sure the settings are how I want them. I need 3 min loop, MPH, and MP4 ALWAYS! And this frustrates me.
There is a solution that the developers could do so this doesn't happen. If for whatever reason something does cause it to revert back to default settings, I'm asking Rock if he can make a firmware version that has the defaults written to the DVR that are more USA user friendly. Or even make a firmware version specific to some people's needs. It wouldn't be that hard. If it reverts back to defaults, have the defaults better meet the needs of most people. (Because it is going to revert back at some point for some reason, and you never know when, or sometimes why) The TS format is useless for me, and 1 minute loop is way to cumbersome. Take a vote to see what defaults would better suit people in general.
