K1 v2 Feature Requests

6 comments

Splitting this out from the C5 post comments, as it's really a separate item.

 

Having now used the K1 for several months, along with extensive reading of reviews and write-ups online, the following shows what I think should be part of the K2 refresh.

- Waterproof 'Save video' button (seems a bit strange that this wasn't part of the original spec)

- Wifi on DVR unit, to allow access to view/download data

- Phone app, to allow to view video in realtime (via Wifi), control app settings, etc

- Bluetooth

- When the 'save video' button is pressed, the unit should keep saving the recording, even if it starts a new video file (currently if a new video file is started, the new recording is not placed in the save folder)

- Waterproof DVR unit

- Touchscreen (nice to have, but if able to control from phone, less important)

 

- For people who have purchased the K1 v1, the ability to purchase just the upgraded components (at a discount perhaps ? :) )

 

As I think of more things, I'll update this post. I'm sure others will have comments as well.

(Moved over from C5 dev thread)

 

 

@Rock Liu - I'd really love to see those features come into action:D

I drive a Yamaha TDM 900.

Actually here is my installation video, loooong overdue.

I've taken power from the lights and went through a 7Amp power filter/stabilizer designed for HiFi audio systems which helps eliminate all power hiccups that could affect the DVR.

Taking power from the lights means the K1 will start after the engine starts and will not stop until I turn off the key and the lights (which work even with a stopped engine), which might be helpful in case of an accident.

The K1 has served me very well so far and I love it!

I think it's a pretty successful product considering the interest people show it around here.

Here are some samples:

In the first and last videos you can notice the red (or rather purple) tint I was complaining about.

+1 with EY Kalman.

+ make better cooling for main unit (copper radiator, and optional radiator, possibly active cooling (which, however, is not possible if the device is waterproof))

+ improved fixation of the connection point to the unit (many pplz сomplain that after a while the connectors lose connections.)

Jul 26, 2017

To be sure,

 

1. Lens and DVR are water proof.

2. DVR is made with aluminum part for cooling.

3. Type C connector and fixed connection.

4. WiFi/App for live recording review and setting.

 

I have question, do we really need the wired control button? as too many cables that make some people feel mess.

 

Jul 26, 2017

I don't find the wired control button to be too much - it's something that's very useful to have (apart from having collision control automatically save recording).

The main problem with it is that it's not currently waterproof - I've had to find something to cover it to make sure it doesn't break (I've seen other solutions out there as well).

I don't think it's too many cables - I have various other things on the bike as well, and don't have any cable issues

@ Viorel Lungu

You have very interesting videos, but all of them are unpublic.

Why do not set them to public and share to INNOVV K1 category?

People can see why motorcycle camera system is needed.

Jul 26, 2017

For sure, once have wired control button, it should be waterproof, GPS is well.

 

Now what in mind is to keep the camera system to be simple as possible.

 

GPS should be included.

 

@EY, I believe you are very skillful, you can manage everything well in bike.

  • We had below discussions about two wheels on road- 1) Not treat equally, 2) Mirror on motorcycle is unreliable. 1. You are absolutely correct.  In many parts of the world, a two-wheeled vehicle, powered or not, is seen as part of the road-user environment and while they may not be treated as an equal to a four-wheeler, they are given some space and consideration.  2. There are two trains of thought here.  One is that yes, you are most correct in that many mirrors (stock or otherwise) do not still function as well as they could (size or placement); but, on the other hand, the mirror is just or should be just one of the safety aides used and should not be relied upon in any sense, making it (critical) that the head be moved and shoulder checks done – and while this, to some, is seen as an effort or perhaps distracting in some ways (which it can be), moving the head to change the point or better  yet, field of view, is for the most part, a very positive action that is a big contributor to maintaining a 360 safety environment.  Working from a somewhat fixed point of view (helmet or mirror sight-lines) is both limiting and dangerous…but its what many (many) riders live by.  So, again, having any aides can be positive, as long as they do not introduce a risk by themselves.
  • I think it will be very welcome if it will be possible in near future to develop 2k cameras with high refresh rate 60fps based on XAVC-S codec. In addition some changes to the camera holder which could have common connection interfaces to fit i.e. 1/4, ram, or GoPro. I believe this changes will shift status of this excellent idea of double cam powered by the bilke, from dash cam to vloggers area of interest. Do you (Innovv) have such a upgrade in you plans???
  • Would love to have an app on my Windows laptop so I could connect via Wi-Fi to the DVR and download videos directly to my laptop
