Finding the Perfect Balance with the VIOFO A229 Plus Dash Cam: A Comparative Review

1st November, 2023 | ViofoUK

Dash cams are no longer just for tech enthusiasts or overly cautious drivers; they’ve become a must-have for everyone on the road.

Amidst a variety of options, the VIOFO A229 Plus emerges as the middle child that you can’t ignore.

Offering top-notch features at an affordable price, it fills the gap between the entry-level A129 Plus and the advanced A229 Pro.

A229 Plus Review: A Close-Up on Video Quality

Where the A229 Plus shines is its 2K QHD front camera, identical in specs to its high-end sibling, the A229 Pro. With a 60FPS frame rate, it surpasses the A129 Plus’ 2K 1440P camera, delivering more nuanced details, particularly during high-speed driving.

Advanced Parking Modes: A Standout Feature

Just like its pricier counterpart, the A229 Pro, the A229 Plus offers advanced parking modes—Auto-Event Detection, Low Bitrate Recording, and Time-Lapse Recording. This is an upgrade from the A129 Plus, which only supports Parking Mode without the advanced features.
Note: For optimum use, invest in a VIOFO Type-C HK4 Hardwiring Kit or a dash cam battery pack.

Seamless Connectivity: A Step Ahead

The A229 Plus features dual-band WiFi, ensuring faster data transfer and smoother streaming compared to the A129 Plus’ 2.4GHz Wi-Fi. If staying connected is a priority, the A229 Plus is your go-to option.

For the Aficionados: The A229 Pro

If you’re an enthusiast looking for even more, the A229 Pro offers voice notifications and an optional rear camera that supports 1080P at 60FPS. While not game-changers, these features could be compelling enough for those who crave the cutting edge.
