MiVue 658 Dashcam Review

The Mio 658 is a high definition dash cam at a reasonable price with integrated GPS and WIFI, The WIFI part of this is really special as it allows you to connect to your smartphone/tablet device . There is a free down loadable app ~ Mivue. And being able to review the footage on your smartphone is very slick indeed.

The Dashcam itself has a 2.7 inch screen and the touchscreen is very intuitive  , Mr T commented on the good picture clarity , it also works in low level lighting.

In the event of an accident you can send yourself /insurance company/police any footage in the event of an accident.And because of the integrated GPS everything will be pinpointed : route speed and type of impact. This I see very much as a huge plus point in this day and age as there are definitely more cars on the road as opposed to when my husband learnt to drive.

Setting up

Make sure you charge the dash cam before you set it up , it would have been useful if it had come with some residual charge. I'll start with the only down point that I can find about the dashcam and that is you can't the get power cable off easily not without taking the bracket off completely.

The technology that we can buy for nowadays is certainly better at whatever it needs to do be it smartphone to the not so humble wristwatch .One area where this is drastically evident is in car gadgets, where smaller things on our dashboard make for a clearer and safer view out of the windscreen. 

Once installed on your windscreen using the included suction-cup mount (ours has been up for two weeks straight and has yet to fall – a good sign, that). As soon as you start the car engine  the Mio MiVue 658 WiFi Dashcam will automatically start to record. What makes this dascsm stand out from others I've had is that it records the HD footage in the H.264 file format, meaning you can fit a lot more high quality footage onto a Micro SD Card. Speaking of which, you'll need one as the MiVue 658 does not come with one but they're cheap enough to buy nowadays.

It also comes with useful speed camera alerts and you'll finally be able to capture those stills from those scenic drives where as a driver you don't really get to appreciate the scenery .
