CDR 825 FIRMWARE UPDATE

This Update Includes:

  • G-Sensor Sensitivity Adjustment – In previous firmware versions the G-Sensor settings are too sensitive for many cars.  This resulted in too many files being protected, which caused Memory Full messages and potential lockup issues.  This update adjusts G-Sensor sensitivity to proper levels.
  • Miscellaneous updates and bug fixes

TROUBLESHOOTING
 - If the update does not load, make sure that you copy the ehd68.bin file to the root of the dash cam.
   If the firmware file is placed inside a folder, then it will not be found.

 - If the firmware update loads every time the dash cam is turned on, then you have not deleted the ehd68.bin file.
   Please perform steps 13-15 above.
