Anyone any experience with these Xiaomi 70Mai dash cams ?

They get some good reviews.

A couple of models:

70Mai Smart dash cam 1S :

But I am more interested in the:

70Mai dash cam pro:

Better resolution than the 1S, voice activated option and also a gps additional module giving position and speed ( although I have read that position and speed do not appear on saved video ?? ). Around 1,500 baht on Lazada.

 

Anyone ??

I have second one, with 2 cameras (front, rear).

 

There is a speed + gps position on the video. With 128GB card it can store about last 10 hours of video (10 rear + 10 front camera).

 

You can view videos and download them either by cable to PC or just by wifi directly to you phone etc. Camera itself will create wifi and you will connect to it by phone app.  I prefer more expensive front/rear setup. What you want to catch is when somebody hits you (rear camera), not front.

That is great Andy !! Nice videos !!and thanks for settling my doubts about the gps on video.

So you have a Pro with gps front and rear ?

 

I see you have a pick up, mine would be going in a hatchback so will have to take a look at the mounting arrangement.

They all are good because it's Xiaomi, the only stupid point is no LED showing that we have a webcam.

 

I find so stupid not to show to people and cops that if they make any problem, they will be recorded.

 

I know that some people think differently but it is clearly wrong not to show a dashcam. Showing it is the best way to avoid problems, this is why we put cameras everywhere !

Yeah, front + rear + gps + 128gb card = 4013 Baht on Lazada.

 

Front camera has to be connected to rear camera by cable, so little extra work to hide it under panles/carpets, but cable is long enough, 6 metres.

 

Why not buying 2 standard cameras, 1 for front 1 for rear ?

Here is a comparison of the options available ( Oct 2019 ) , although I have only seen the 1S and the PRO for sale I have seen the LITE mentioned on some reviews.

As you can see the specs for the PRO are improved over the other versions and as a clear video showing a license/number plate is important especially in a hit and run, the gps will record your speed also, another important feature if any dispute is opened.

 

I have ordered the PRO with gps from Lazada ( 1760 baht ) but have not decided on the rear camera yet, the reason being my car is a hatchback am looking at other options for rear view.

I have a front and rear camera connected by wire.  Why waste money on an expensive high resolution safety camera?  if it does the job of recording what is going on , in enough detail, in good resolution and in  colour, that is good enough.  No need for high tech.  My double camera cost 1,000 Baht and is perfect for the job.

Front and rear camera are sold as a set. Rear camera doesn't have memory card, screen and power cable. Just cable from the main (front) camera. rear camera is just a slave o main.

 

If you buy 2 separate cameras. Both cameras will need power source, it's memory card and you will have to operate them separately. With a set you don;t care about anything of that.

As AndyAndyAndy (why three?  hard to type) writes above, no power source, unless you provide it separately.  They are connected by wire.
