    Turn off the camera??>to connect the computer??> open the removable disk??> click the right mouse button on blank space of the root directory of the device ??>move the cursor on "New" option of the pop-up menu ??> select "Text Document"??> named "time" to the text document, need to pay attention to its extension name is ". txt" ??> completion of setting up time file; you can set up in accordance with the above steps on your desktop, other disk partition, under the other folder and then copy to a removable disk root directory.

    b. Open the "time" text document, input the time settings string, the string is composed of "year. month.Day hours.minutes.seconds show/hide flag" ,set-up times are as follows:
    With time shows: 2009.01.01 12.01.01 Y

    Thank you for your feedback. I tried to set up date and time by your instructions without success. I created file "time.txt" that contained single line of text in format
    I tried to save it under different file encode (UTF8, ISO-8859-Windows) and copied "time.txt" to root of memory card and boot up googles. Google now show time: 2100.01.01

    Please help

    Hi Chrysler,

    I followed your instructions and it works, though i used the "N" string version but the time and date are still shown on the video footage.

    Is there another way to remove the annoying date and time stamps?

    Unfortunately I also only managed to change the date and time. I'd really like to hide it. Any tips?

    Same problem. I think this is the bad firmware. How can I upgrade it?
