I'm using YI from the past two years.
Performance is flawless. 

It is cheap and night vision is excellent. 

Only issue with YI? Inconsistent suction mount.
Many people are using 3M tape instead of suction mount.

I do not have this issue with Suction Mount too along with it's flawless functioning (Except for 3 Minute Video Recording 😉 ) and I remember I promised you that I will get back to you with details or any clue on which Glue has been used, I remember taking out that plaster while I have stuck it to my car! I am sure it was 3M, let me check and get back! I got this Dash Cam by YI from the USA.

Hi All,
 

I came across Xiaomi Rear view mirror with dash cam recorder. 

Launch date : June 16th

Price : CYN 399, roughly translates to 4k INR

Features:

  • Sony IMX323 image sensor with 160 degree wide angle view(with f1.8, helps in low light)
  • 5inch IPS display
  • Voice controls
  • Parking monitor
  • Ability to record both sides
  • Micro SD card support upto 64GB
  • Is wifi enabled and supports  Mijia App

This is a newly launched version, previously there is a similar device called "70 steps" which has 135 degree view.

 

I feel like this is the one stop solution for all the issues.

Im planning to buy it. 
 

Any inputs and suggestions on this version? 

 

Small video

 

Hoping to get full reviews by this weekend.

Thank you for sharing karthik.

 

Looks very good.

Couldn't find any reviews online.

I don't think they will launch in India?

Gearbest or Alibaba is the only way to buy these stuff.

 

Any idea if it supports mobile connectivity like streaming music and maps?

 

Now I feel like upgrading to this dash cam 😕

Dear Team,

Thanks for the great reviews and help from your posts .. After so many suggestions, I bought my New YI dash cam.

Now that I have just unwrapped this, it’s time for me to get this fixed. I just realised that the suction mount is missing in the box.

Can somebody suggest me where can I get the suction mount in Hyderabad for this as I couldn’t find it in the box.  

Or ordering it online is the only option ? 😮

Ouch,

I guess it will be difficult to source the suction mount.
Try AliExpress.

 

Or you can do some jugad with regular mount using 3M tape, which is not recommend(worst case scenario)

You can ask the seller to ship the mount?

Yes, I have already contacted the amazon team and waiting for a response from them. Also, checked out for the mount on AliExpress. Will take a step based on how amazon responds back 🙃

How did they miss such a critical part 🙈

Installation is easy or do we need to visit a accessories shop?

Any wire cutting? or warranty issues?

It is very easy, just fix it, plug and play. Only thing you need to buy is the memory card. Suction mount will be there in the box usually

Yeah,
It took some time to route the wires through A-Pillar, but it is DIY.
No need to go to an installer.

Without suction mount, i think it will be difficult to mount the dash cam.
Even Jugad may not be very helpful.

It is better to buy a mount from AliExpress.

I'm using the Transcend Drivepro 230. It has built in GPS, so it stores time, date and location data. Records video in 1080P. Wi Fi feature allows transfer to Android and iOS phones through the Drivepro app. Bought it from the HVK Store. Cost 14.5K

15k is very high in my opinion.

I got mine for 4k. Using it from the past two years without any problem.

 

Apart from GPS, I don't see any major feature.

This  terms "DASH Cam With GPS" disappoints many customer like me once they receive the product.   I myself was also thinking earlier that GPS means , it will guide route  using Google Map on screen  and/or it will allow me to Track my car by mobile app. But all this assumptions are wrong.

 

This transcend,HP or Garmin etc which Provide GPS is just a GPS logger which registers the Geo-Coordinates in the video.  I guess that in USA/Canada where there may be different rules in different state/province, GPS Coordinates are helpful. But in India,  I guess just Video of Accident is enough to prove cause of accident.

 

Also this High priced dash cam still don't provide rear camera recording for double security and OBD cable for parking mode. For budget dash cam I look forward to Car Camera India.

I am using the same dash cam for about an year and works well to me too... I guess 14.5K for that is so much :( There are better dash cams for even lesser prices. I am eagerly waiting for the Xiaomi Rear view mirror with dash cam recorder.. :)

Agree with your points.

GPS is not of a much use in India.

Having GPS will be an added advantage, but 15k is not value for money.

With 15k we are getting almost flag ship phones.I feel it is a day light robbery by Transcend. 

 

A basic dash camera with good clarity will do.

YI is not bad either, we recently used it in out drive to Chikmagalur.
Clarity is good enough for our usage.

Can we present dash cam as proof during accidents?

 

Yes it's valid as per Information technology act.

But:

  •  It should not be tampered with. You should preserve it in its original form, which means : don't do any editing in it.
  • Your camera and whole apparatus would need to be submitted for examination.
  • Make a copy of its recording and get it validated as evidence as per procedure in IT act. ( just in case court/police looses your original recording)
  • Report the matter to police and give them the original version as evidence. (keep a copy after getting it validated, for yourself)

Looks too complicated!

Seen this discussion in WhatsApp group. 

 

As someone pointed in the group, If we can share mobile pictures/recordings as proof without any issue, why there is an objection for dash-cam.

Any Evidence can be produced before the court of law but it must be testified and tried by the Court during the trial of the case. One should go through with the Indian Evidence Act and prepare the case accordingly. :)
