When is WiFi 'live'

4 comments

Hi, I've finally got the full system installed on my GSX650F, but I'm having trouble with the WiFi connection.

 

Is the SSID always broadcasting or does it only broadcast when the bike ignition is on?

 

I've got it wired in as designed, red - live, yellow - switched, but can only connect to the WiFi when the bike is running, but the blue WiFi light flashes when the ignition is off, suggesting that it should connect all the time.

 

How strong should the WiFi signal be, how close to the bike do I need to be to connect to it?

 

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S9 running Android 9

The cameras must be connected to dvr in order for wifi to connect.

Hi Fidge,

 

My understanding is the switch wire will only trigger the system to turn on once ignition is turned on and likewise will instruct the System to shut down once the Trigger (Ignition) is switched off.

 

Just been to the garage to check my system to try and help. My Unit powers up a few seconds after you turn on ignition. And wifi will flash until you connect to it. At that point it goes solid blue. I can connect to my Wifi from approx 10 metres away with no problem. When ignition is turned off it Powers down the system completely within approx 1 minute and all lights turn off.

 

Hope that helps in some way.

Thanks for the reply nkersey, I was hoping that the WiFi would stay live with the ignition off, but I guess that would drain the bike battery even quicker than the system does already. That said, you need to have the bike running to be able to download files remotely, so as to not drain the battery because with the ignition on, the lights will be on too, again draining the battery.

 

My experience of the WiFi isn't grate anyway, even with the bike running I've only been able to download 1, 1 minute clip, out of 10 attempts. Sometimes it says that the file has downloaded and there is a file on the phone, but it's a empty file.

 

The WiFi seems very flaky, even when standing over the bike, with the engine running, seat off and the DVR in view the connection is hit and miss. Not what I expected from a camera system in this price range.

Yeah the wifi isn't the best but downloading any files of that size over Wifi is going to take time. Best way i've found is to remove the SD card and use a card reader and download to PC, Same as i do with my GoPro etc. Much faster to download and you can do far more with the Files on a PC anyway.

  • 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?
  • Loving this product so far. Question is: I'm a dual-sport rider and often take my GS Adventure offroad. How does the K2 hold up in rocky, rough riding environments? Heading back to Baja next month, and I would love to have it fully functional but I'm considering leaving the DVR back at the hotel. Advice?
