MIO MiVue 518 Dashboard Camera - Black

 

A great little camera, I still haven't read the manual so I can use all the benefits but I know it does a lot

Motion sensor needs to be a bit more sensitive, it'd need a very hard knock for it to kick in. Rubber windscreen sucker is white rather than black and the circle lense is red and silver so all those things make it very noticeable so I'm scared to leave...

MIO MiVue 518 Dashboard Camera - Black

 

Small and compact, video recording and GPS automatically start as you switch on the ignition, day date and time is automatically installed as well, the only thing that you need to set is if you want the camera to record in parking mode then you are...

The sound volume is not great

MIO MiVue 518 Dashboard Camera - Black

 

Does exactly what it should do. Buy a 16gb card though

Downloaded the software from the mivue site and it doesn't like my windows platform. An error message said it couldn't download and play the recorded footage from the camera. No fix on mivue either

MIO MiVue 518 Dashboard Camera - Black

 

We had a puncture on the motorway and the camera captured the event and saved it to an emergency file just in case we needed it, very clever

The cable plugs in upside down and hangs in the driver's view

MIO MiVue 518 Dashboard Camera - Black

 

Easy to set up in car, replay software is excellent and easy to use

Mounting bracket a little too long making it a little bulky on the windscreen, an adhesive mounting pad would be useful for car windscreens with anti-glare panels as sucker mount will not adhere to textured surfaces
