Issues with codecs and google maps gps link. Bought this to replace the mi vue 518 that i have used for nearly a year until mi vue manager stopped working with google maps. I updated mi vue manager and the software to the camera the result was missing video codecs and still no link to google maps. I bought the mivue 538 to replace it, same outcome, support from mio tried to say that these models do not have gps support, not true, and told me to download the k-lite codec pack, which i am loath to install on my computer as there are malware issues with this download, so left to my own devices, and having tried quicktime which will play the video files but not with the mi vue manager, so not one to give up easily i uninstalled mio mivue manager then downloaded navman mivue manager first, installed it, then downloaded mio mi vue manager, installed it and whoop da doo all works perfectly, so one up to the little guy and i have kept both dash cams so i have a spare. 1 and no problems with other programs, also you will now get sound if you playback the driving files in media player, so an added bonus.
Installation was pretty simple, the cam works straight out of the. I’ve had this dash cam for about 5 weeks now and have to give it 5 stars. Installation was pretty simple, the cam works straight out of the box, once you’ve inserted a micro sd card, which is not supplied with the camera. The mounting suction bracket is sturdy and the suction hasn’t failed since fitting, i’d have liked the bracket to be angled more toward the screen so i could get the cam right behind the rear view mirror, but that’s not a major issue. The charger cable is long enough in my corsa to run from behind the rear view mirror under the ceiling trim above the screen, down behind the door column trim and back across to the cigar lighter. However, i made a less obtrusive connection using a female cigar lighter socket plug connector vorcool waterproof 12v car motorcycle boat female cigarette lighter socketand an add a circuit fuse tap,add-a-circuit fuse holder – standard 20amp which are now hidden behind my glove box, there are a couple of youtube vids that show how to do this. The quality of the video is smooth and very good, both day and night, with a good depth of field and a wide angle which covers the full width of a normal road, pavements and side junctions. The bespoke software is also very good, i like the ability to follow the route on a map and to select files from a calender view, although you can view the vids on any media player if you don’t want to run the software. All in all, for me a great piece of tech, which is well worth the money.
