It’s a compact, decent camera.
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.

Great little camera 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.
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.
