Could be better!
I have stopped trying to access the Audi UTR with my iPhone now as I have Wireless CarPlay which uses the Bluetooth and WiFi connections in the car to connect. If I try and switch to the UTR WiFi it just keeps switching back to the car connection and drives me insane!
One definite improvement I can think of would be the ability to export videos that you have transferred from the device to the app. At the moment I have a video that I would like to upload or send to someone and I can’t get it out of the app!
Also, with privacy glass in the back window the recording is quite dark. A setting to take that into consideration for that feed would be good. Maybe something that boosts the brightness or contrast or something??
Considering the quality of the build and the Audi brand I thought this would be a bit better!
This software is poor
Does anyone actually test this software before releasing it? (I mean testing it in the real world where most of us live and not in a laboratory.)
This app update includes a firmware update, the main purpose of which is to correct the video overlay which, when the speed was displayed in kph it was fine, but when it was displayed in mph the read out was exactly 2.5 times the actual speed. I kid you not. When travelling at 30mph the video read 75mph. Try taking that into court as evidence! I would have thought a tester would have spotted that glaring error. I spotted it in 5 minutes.
So, the good news is that the speed display is now fixed. The bad news is that it took over an hour to do the firmware upgrade because once installed (about 6minutes) the app refused to re-connect to the phone. After resetting the phone and restarting the app numerous times, I had to delete the app and re-install it because even though the Wi-fi and app passwords matched, the app said they didn’t, and if you haven’t got a Wi-fi connection established between the phone and the app you can’t make any changes to the app settings to establish that link. Catch22!
As far as the app is concerned: no change as far as I can see. It’s still reluctant to connect, you still can’t adjust the settings without a Wi-fi connection between app, phone and camera.
I would have though Audi could have done better. Much better.
Doesn’t show correct date format...
***Update: New update does not change the time stamp format. Still shows the date in USA date format. Month / Date / Year.
***Shout out at the app developer, please sort this out as soon as possible, the date needs to be in UK format. Date / Month / Year.
It’s has beautiful hardware, with a nice high quality app, to control and view all recorded footage. However this app experience fails are they’re is no way to view your footage via the internet or via a cloud storage options.
Also the footage time stamp doesn’t show the correct date format, as it shows the month first then the date, and year. So it’s hard to use any recordings as proof as you need to explain to your insurance or police that the format date is back to front. Also the time stamp is very small and not re-sizeable to be more sharper. No options to change this, however a future app update may resolve this.
When viewing video footage ‘rear’ camera, no time stamp is evident.
I’m now opting to swap my Audi front and rear dash cams with Blackvue alternatives. Better functionality as well correct time stamp features. Also has iCloud storage as well as timestamp shown on video footage as it shows both on playback. Shame Audi’s dash cams look amazing but i’m now past the branding issue over functionality and features.
Overall its a nice app lacking key features.
