Excellent image quality and very intuitive to use, also power cable is long enough to reach right around the edge of the windscreen on my fiat motorhome.

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.

Great camera, views in the day time are good, night time are average, but they all are limited at night, the let down is the bracket, it has limited angles and use, i have a large and steep windscreen, peugeot 3008, and this does not allow all the positions i like, that said, i have found a good position on the screen now, the camera is small, but needs space due to the bracket. I have a 32gb card and again this is needed for 3+ hours etc. Overall a great unit, i dont miss the gps and speed recording, i have turned of the mic / sound recording so as to save space. The software the manufacturer supplies is ok, but i just plug and play on a windows 7 pc and the standard movie package opens and reads it, all good. Here are the specifications for the Mio Technology MIO MiVue 538 Deluxe Dash Camera –:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Lifetime Safety Camera Updates
  • GPS Tracking
  • Bright F1.8 lens for low light conditions
  • 1080p Full HD Recording
  • Parking mode and Emergency recording

Very clear view ,easy set up , easy to use recommend in 100%.

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.

Reviews from purchasers :

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

I wanted one of these having read a very good review in the telegraph, and saw this one at a good price . It certainly meets my expectations – the quality of video is excellent, in varying light levels, and road signs and number plates can be clearly read when playback is paused to test this, and i find the location (in latitude and longitude) and speed (in km/hr) of interest. I have not (yet) tested the device in an emergency situation .I am using it with a 32gb memory card, which provides plenty of room for storage. I do still have reservations about the installation – i am using blutack to fix the power wire around the windscreen, which seems to work well, and my car (’04 ford focus) has two power outlets within easy reach – however, i have my ‘hands free’ permanently in one of them, which calls for even more wires . I do wish, though, that the power supply had a usb end rather than the big charger that it does (which can get in the way) – i think it must be possible to replace the wire with a usb to mini usb lead, but you still need the ‘charger’ to provide the right amperage for the device. I deliberately chose this mio model, rather than the deluxe version because i could see no point in having a speed camera facility (the only obvious difference) since i use a satnav as well. The mio is a bit more expensive than many such devices – but a lot cheaper than many others.

Great little camera and very good value.

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.

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.

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 time🖒😃.

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.

Capture great quality footage with the added benefit of speed trap warnings.
