Mio Technology MIO MiVue 528 Dash Camera – : Unfortunately the Wifi feature is useless for few reasons

Good piece of kit, very pleased.

Unfortunately the wifi feature is useless for few reasons. I’ve been using this dash cam for few days. I bought the wifi model to eliminate the process of taking the memory card out of the device to view on full screen or backup the recordings. Unfortunately the wifi feature is useless for few reasons; (1) the camera will not turn the wifi on if you choose to record in highest resolution (1296p). (2) the wifi file transfer is extremely slow, a 3 minutes clips in 1080p will take 20+ minutes to transfer (3) the camera suggest you to pause recording if you choose to transfer files faster over the wifi although still it takes 15+ minutes to transfer a 3 minutes clip. The recordings in 1080p and 1296p are otherwise very clear and crisp.

Great little camera and very good value. Here are the specifications for the Mio Technology MIO MiVue 528 Dash Camera –:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • 2.4” (6.1cm) display screen with 1080 pixel full HD recording capability
  • The MiVue 528 has a F1.8 lens, so it let’s more light in
  • 3-Axis G-Sensor records direction and force, including impact, turns and acceleration
  • The MiVue 528 starts recording when you turn the key to start your car

A good camera at a reasonable price. The recordings are a little on the dark side, but this can be compensate for in the menu. Overall, the videos are sharp and fairly clear but i wouldn’t consider them to be hd, although perhaps i’m being too critical as i do lot of high quality filming. The sound is good and clear as is the photo mode. Parking mode is available but not enabled by default so needs to be set up via the menu. The mivue manager program can be downloaded free and is excellent for viewing, saving and editing all recordings. The gps positioning allows you to view your position on a moving map and is accurate to about 10 meters. Overall, a great bit of kit, easy to use and very good value.

Bought as a gift for christmas for my sister, she seems to find it easy to use. The camera lense seems pretty good and captures everything and more as it’s really wide. She puts it to the left of the interior mirror. Only thing she doesn’t like about it is that you can’t leave the mount up and take the camera down as it’s too much hassle.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • This is one of the better camaras
  • Very pleased with this item.
  • Smart little camera!

Excellent does what it says and easy to use.

Absolutely superb little camera. Excellent range of vision and very useful reminder about speed cameras.

Good but i have found 1080p uses a lot of card memory. There is no settings to record in 720p, i have found with other dash cams i have that 720 is just as clear.

This is one of the better camaras. This will be the 3rd camara i have bought for my vehicles, whilst at first looks a little complicated once in position and plugged in it works itselfexelent picture when viewed on computer screen.

I have a ‘start -stop’ vehicle and sat nab keeps. I have a ‘start -stop’ vehicle and sat nab keeps switching off when in this vehicle eco mode. Works well out side this start – stop mode.

It has been as good as expected. I bought two, one for the front and one for the back. The one on the front has been stuck since i bought it. The one on the back keeps dropping off every few days. Other than that, it has been as good as expected.

At first i thought the satnav was too large but i managed to position it so that it rested on the top of the dashboard which kept it out of my line of vision. The manual that comes with the unit is pretty useless but the user can find their own way through the functions without too much trouble. The voice of the satnav is not quiet loud enough and you have to turn down the radio a bit but if you’re in a truck that might not be sufficient. The second choice voice is the best for clarity. The screen image is not bad but it does pick up reflections which weaken the picture. The dash camcorder records okay but i haven’t tried to download it to my computer yet, i did read somewhere that you have to get special software to do this. The satnav doesn’t pick up at least half of the fixed speed safety cameras and misses all of the average speed cameras, so don’t rely on it. I might get a separate unit for this. I tow a caravan a lot and the restricted vehicle size function works very well and has been tested a couple of times and this was why i gave it the extra star to make it three star judgment.

Nice, solid, does not move in auto motion, clear image and playback, took a while to figure out how to do upgrades.

Reasonable quality but poor in some areas. Suction mount far too big (compared to some others) for discreet mounting,had to make my own plastic mount to be able to mount it where i wanted it,unit gets very hot, charge cable should be at least another 12″ longer to reach most cigar terminals. The free camera updates is a bit of a no no at the moment been trying to download updates for 3 days now,and still not suceeded yet, very difficult, some files arrived as “bin” files and require a program to unwrap them which did not work ( some reviews complain that they do not exist) beginning to think so myself. At this time the sound on playback does not work even though it is selected in the menue.

The wi-fi is on the slow side but i was able to transfer images to my phone. This will come in very handy in case of an accident as most of my days at work is on in traffic. Very happy and excited about this kit still early days though. Amazon ace for punctuality delivered spot on time๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Expensive but well worth it. . Nice having the front and back cam. Having the back cam was handy after being hit in the back and the driver just driving on after i pulled over. Only thing i found with it at the min is that the holder for it is loose and the cam tens to move a little if i go over speed bumps and i have to reset it.
