Final thoughts
Finally got a chance to review a VicoVation dashcam!

The videos from the OPIA1 offers more detail and better exposure if compared to the Viofo A119S which uses the same Sony Starvis IMX291 sensor due to the Opia1 using Novatek 96663 processor unlike the Novatek 96660 processor used on the Viofo A119S.

Wished I had the Vico Power Plus so that I can test the parking mode.

Opia1 it’s one of the only devices that offers a swiveling mount, capacitor-based, WiFi connectivity, 1080p 60fps recording, and automatic parking mode.
