Good hardwire kit for Viofo a129?
Bought one one prime day and of course it didn't say to buy a kit. Recommendations?

There's a couple options. The hardwire kit is only REALLY needed if you are going to use the parking feature on the camera. If you aren't, they make an adapter that plugs into the rear view mirror for a USB power supply. This is what I sued for my a129. I have the hardwire kit, but used the adapter for now. I may or may not use the hardwire kit. haven't decided.

You'd have to check and see if they make one for your vehicle (assuming you have a powered rear view mirror). This is the piece I bought:

Here's the hardwire kit:

Side note: The a129 will accept a 512GB micro SD if the firmware is updated. I have NOT been able to get mine to connect to the android app that VIOFO has.

It allows the camera to record while your car is turned off and parked. It'll sense if the vehicle is bumped and start recording.

they have a matching one on amazon?

go to the viofo website itself and ask them there.

i bought the $15 hardwire kit with the a139 2-cam system which has the voltage regulator to keep from running your battery down when in parking mode.

hit the dashcam sub on reddit. the a129 is one of their favorites so if there's any problem w/ the oem hardwire kit they'll give you the breakdown.
