    I haven't found an explanation of some of the settings that are in v1.20 but not the v1.18 manual.
    Can anyone tell me if and where there is one?
    I cannot tell what OSD and AutoDVR do. I suspect they may be associated w/dashcam but am not sure..

    @Jason: I still have v1.15 in my camera - can you sort this out? OSD is usually On Screen Directions, but AutoDVR baffles me, too.

    Couldn't find either in the menu of the SJ7 1.20 firmware - eventually found them in the ap.

    AutoDVR is car mode. OSD doesn't seem to do anything.

    "AutoDVR" is probably only a poor titling choice for "dashcam mode". OSD is often on/off and controls hints (touch something and get a written hint such as "turn WiFi on and off"). Sometimes it has a language choice. Different devices and different manufacturers do OSD differently. As if that comes as a surprise...

    On Screen Display?

    Wondered why I hadn’t seen them on the camera, not really played with the app as WiFi is way to slow for transferring files for me.

    The OSD thing may be only a stub entry, waiting for the rest of the material to be added.

    As to file transfer, the data rate for "SneakerNet" (physically move the SD to the PC) can be screamingly fast. The WiFi link is, by comparison, only slightly better than a poke in the eye.

    I had thought that the OSD option would toggle the on screen display for the information and menus on the HDMI output so you could either show the settings or have a clean HDMI output.

    I was wrong - it doesn't. I wonder if it does it on the FPV output so you can see battery levels etc? Probably not but I don't have a FPV set up so cant check.

    Meh - probably it does nothing but give a hook for "to be provided at a later date".

    There does seem to be some things that are still in development or something.
    I'd like to see some detailed info on the screens.
    I discovered today that when playing back the videos on the camera, feeding the hdmi to a tv, that you can control the playback speed to fast fwd in multiples and to slow motion in fractions. I found no info anywhere about that. Makes me wonder what other features I haven't stumbled onto.
    Thanks for the responses.

    These items are sometime referred to as easter eggs. Having found that undocumented easter egg, can spring be far behind?
