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 product, very easy to set up. Great product, very easy to set up, nice compact size. Windscreen bracket nice and short so you can get it mounted tight up to your rear view mirror. Clear pictures, parking facility very handy and you can just leave the unit switch on and it will switch in and out of parking mode soon as you start moving, so plug it in and just leave it.

A great product and very easy to use.
Great quality and clear footage. I spent hours looking at dash cams after the one i was bought by my husband for my birthday stopped working after its first outing. In the end we paid a bit more money and settled for this one. It is of good quality and feels much more sturdier than the one which broke. It is easy to set up, literally take it out of the box and plug into cigarette lighter and away you go. However, the standard settings are pretty minimalist, not even recording in hd, so if you want to use all the features of the camera you will need to go into the settings and (gulp) read the instruction manual. The instructions are basic but then when you get into the settings it is actually fairly easy to set up. I made the mistake of setting the g-shock sensor to ‘high’ meaning that every time i touched the thing an alarm went off and locked the recording. Very frustrating but eventually i was able to touch it lightly enough to get back into the settings and change it backthe main downside for me was that it doesn’t come with a usb cable. It takes mini usb, not the more popular micro usb, and with my first purchase rather than buying a cigarette adapter with several holes to accept the cigarette lighter lead, i purchased a double usb socket which goes into the cigarette lighter then you can plug two usb leads into it to charge.
Very good, picture quality is very clear.
