The All-New VIOFO A229 Pro Review: A Comprehensive insight and Why It’s Worth the Upgrade

3rd November, 2023 | ViofoUK

Welcome, dash cam aficionados and tech enthusiasts! If you’re on the hunt for a top-of-the-range dash cam, you’ll want to stick around for this one. We’re digging deep into VIOFO’s latest release, the A229 Pro, to give you a detailed review covering its specs, features, and how it stacks up against its predecessors.

VIOFO A229 Pro Review: First Impressions

Let’s kick things off with aesthetics. The A229 Pro sports a sleek, compact design that merges style with functionality. The first thing you’ll notice is the larger 2.4” display—clear, crisp, and highly responsive.

Video Quality: Crystal Clear Captures

The A229 Pro doesn’t just win on looks; it also delivers when it comes to performance. With 2K QHD rear recording, this dash cam marks a significant upgrade over previous models. This translates to superior image quality that you’ll appreciate whether you’re revisiting a scenic drive or reviewing footage after an unfortunate fender bender.

Advanced Parking Modes: Security Beyond Driving

We were especially impressed with the advanced parking modes. Choose from Auto-Event Detection, Low Bitrate Recording, or Time-Lapse Recording to keep your vehicle secure while parked. Take note—you’ll need the VIOFO Type-C HK4 Hardwiring Kit or a dedicated battery pack to make the most of these features.

File Storage and Playback: Flexibility at Your Fingertips

The A229 Pro accommodates up to a 256GB microSD card, recording in H.264 and saving files in MP4 format. The built-in screen allows on-the-spot playback, while the VIOFO mobile app lets you view, download, and share files effortlessly.

Wi-Fi and VIOFO App: Seamless Connectivity

For those who prefer the convenience of wireless, the A229 Pro has got you covered with dual-band Wi-Fi. We recommend using the 5GHz band for faster data transfer and smooth video previews.

Ease of Installation: Do-It-Yourself Simplicity

One of the most appealing aspects of the A229 Pro is its straightforward installation. With the new super slim coaxial rear cable and static stickers, even a novice can have it up and running in no time.

Pricing and Upgrades: Is it Worth It?

The A229 Pro does come at a premium, being around £100 more than the A129 Plus Duo. However, with a raft of improvements such as 2K QHD rear recording, a larger display, multiple USB-C ports, and optional add-ons, we firmly believe it offers great value for the investment.

Optional Add-Ons: Elevate Your Experience

From Bluetooth remote controls to external mics and power cell batteries, the range of optional add-ons is extensive. These accessories provide not just functionality but also opportunities for upselling if you’re in the retail space.

Final Thoughts

If you’re still clinging to an older VIOFO model, the A229 Pro is the upgrade you didn’t know you needed. Despite being on the pricier end, its host of advanced features justifies the cost, positioning it as a market leader in dash cams.
