    In the latest blackvue  App version v1.84, some of the phone's are not connecting to the direct Wifi of the dashcam.

     If you are using Android version 8.1 and later, following is the procedure through which this issue can be fixed.

    1. Turn on the location on your phone by going to Phone Settings > Connections >  Location on

      Still not working, my Huawei P10 still can't connect with direct Wi-Fi. Has upgraded my Blackvue DR900S-2CH to the latest firmware via PC / mico sd. I also can't see my blackvue under WiFi on my mobile .... So all in all I can't even see my camera on direct wfi and under normal wifi. I've done everything suggested in the help center. Best regards, Brian L Petersen

      Found a fix for my Oneplus 6T. I had to turn off mobile data first, then the app will connect to the camera.
      Tip: If you like to watch the video from your camera on your phone, while the video is playing you can turn mobile data back on but you will lose the ability to control your settings of the camera until you disable mobile data again.

      Thanks Jerry, doing that i can connect and look at videos but if i try to go to settings the phone app crashes.

      Of course it also complains that since im not connected to internet it cannot show location (map) when viewing a video.

      Useless app - In an event of an accident this will not help. Apparently third party app I installed works beautifully. But not Blackvue junk

      Rakesh Sorry but your comment is not helpful as you have not contributed to a solution by not specifying the app that works.

      Hi Dan, for android the app I found works is called "VIEWER FOR BLACKVUE"

      I have an LG V20 and all LG updates are current with last update as Dec 2018. I have tried turning off Mobile data but cannot view anything on the dashcam. The installer used an iPhone and that was demonstrated working. I am about to print out the manual for the DR750S 2ch which is what my unit is. At the moment the unit is useless as I cant recover any video. If the unit is sold as supporting Android as well as Apple iPhone it should do so.

      Update - After using the "Viewer for Blackvue" Rakesh's suggestion I can view the videos. Strange but now the BlackVue app is working. Still have to work through a few things from the manual i.e. setting time etc but things are looking up now.
