This thread started as a seeking for dashcam thread, ended up being a discussion thread. There are so many dash cameras out there, and here are the models that I'm currently using:

- Xiaomi Yi Smart Wifi Dash Camera (First Edition) [NOT POWER EDITION]
- Xiaomi 70mai Mini Dashcam

Looking for dashcam? Scroll through the comments below!

Hi guys, plan to get a traffic recorder for all my cars. I've went through LYN's automotive garage but still not impressed with most of them. I'm looking for something with:

- Full HD videos, but good quality and better colours
- GPS showing speed
- look as stealthy as possible
- budget less than RM300 per unit.

Anyone can recommend me any unit or any shop i can visit to test it out. Thanks!

Don't think can get at that price. The closest that get to your spec is this:

RM1,200.00

been looking the same thing...
unfortunately this car DVR are consider new market in malaysia...
not many seller advertise their item online....
and many buyer i believed bought from china/taiwan/HK themself..
and pricing wise is much more cheaper than malaysia market because of their competitiveness and market demand

p/s:
btw..i found some seller with physical shop that i believe you can test out the product yourself
but currently they only sell one type of DVR
http://www.lelong.com.my/full-hd-1080p-car...7-01-Sale-I.htm
or you can search at aliexpress....but it still a RISK buying electronic product from oversea online seller

like sanadi recommend
i also recommend blackvue
blackvue also have cheaper models but NOT full HD...its 720p which for me is more than enough
or go papago..but also RM300 budget, impossible full HD
when its cheap and stated its "full HD"...they mean the size of the video is full HD, not the quality

Well, frankly speaking with less than RM300, I don't think you can get what you have listed above. So, I advice is, try to topup to RM700-RM800, then you may have somethings you want.

I am currently using DOD LS300w, which is truly Full HD 1080P.


Please select 1080P for clearer picture.

hi, I am into these gadgets as well.......

Since you already set the budget around RM300, I guess you can only get a good camera recorder with reasonable quality on optical, but not with GPS ability. For a unit with GPS....the budget need to be up! maybe twice as much...somewhere in Rm600 range!

user posted image
Mio Mivue 388

the image above shows MIO Mivue388......probably close to Rm600-700!** This unit has Full HD and GPS ability

But MIO also offers a lesser model ie Mio Mivue 338 and 358!

Basically, The Mio Mivue 338 has 720p resolution(around Rm300) and the Mio Mivue 358 Full HD!(Rm400)

Where to get it? Ebay!

I currently using the Mivue338 and although it is just a 720p in resolution. I compared to the WayWay V270 HD model found in local market(Rm229). The Mivue338 actually has better optical (wider angle) and better night time images!
The WayWay V270 HD although having full HD or 1080p resolution, the lens a bit distorted and night time recording is less detail and darker!

user posted image
Wayway V270

Other than image quality, we need also need to take note on file sizes.

at 720p the Mivu338e files averaging at 70MB (for 120seconds video), but WayWay V270 at similar resolution, the file is trice as big! Around 200MB ....

A small memory card such as the 8GB card is useless on wayway....due to its memory hungry nature!

In short, similar size SDCard can store less recorded videos on Wayway compared to the Mio Mivue devices!

Lastly, you need to look also on the the "buttons". Are they carefully layout? Are the buttons Easily to access and press in driving situation?

Plastic quality on MIO devices are great as well, suction cup and accessories(charger) are as good as Garmin product. The Wayway accessories on the other hand, are working fine but the quality is not as good as Mio!

Thats my personal review .... icon_rolleyes.gif

And below is the basic Mio Mivue338 look like:

** since the Mio are sold at Ebay.....I couldnt give you a definite or reliable pricing! The prices keep on changing on day to day basis, please check them out regularly .....it may be lesser that what I said now!!!! thumbup.gif

I'm using the GS9000. Bought it for RM330 on DealExtreme. Pretty damn bloody wide angle! Sample videos can get from Youtube.

heres my own sample.



I'd like to add also that the raw files looks TWICE as good as Youtube's compression at 1080p by the way.

screengrabs(warning large pics)

Do acknowledge that by buying these cheap china dashcams, you're basically taking a gamble by the way. Google for GS9000 on dashcamtalk and you can read horror stories as well as success stories. My tips is do your research before buying any dashcam so you know the pros and cons before buying. Also read up on processor types etc and don't fall for cheap prices on ebay as it might be fakes(yeap, fakes of china brands)

add: just added another sample that happened today

I personally use a Blackvue DR380HD. It's 720p only, however the video quality at night is excellent. It has even more features that I never thought about when buying a dashcam eg. parking mode, battery backup for recording when the engine is off etc.

Build quality is excellent, I've had it for 7 months without problems but the price is far too expensive in Malaysia for any dashcam as mentioned by someone already. I would like to get a cheap dashcam but from watching youtube the video quality at night is lower, plus from dashcamtalk forums etc. most of the cheap China made dashcams aren't very reliable (overheating etc.)

This is my own personal video at the KL-Putrajaya highway

Unfortunately it is. Most people advertise online nowadays. But we would like to try it out first before purchase. There are lots of dashcam manufacturers out there, especially china and HK, but all they do is slap in a idunnowhat camera lens and that's it. Not really optimized for the proper usage.

I'm looking for something at least 720p, but has a good camera and video recording.
Some people recommend me to just get a second hand iPhone 4 and use it. doh.gif doh.gif

I saw BlackVue ones are good, but it's so expensive! And, no microphone?

Hmm... I know this guy. Some people said he sounds like James May.
I did watch his videos before, but he sounds like every single additional features on the dashcam is stupid. All you need is a camera lens and a screen. That's it.

Mivue 338 sounds great. I've watched the videos on YT, but the night shot isn't good. Very dark. Since you're using it can you post night shots here? From this video it looks so dark:


Plus, sometimes I'll take it off and use it as action camera and stuff.

No, I didnt keep samples of my night time driving videos! Wipe them off already....sorry doh.gif

Anyway, the YT sample that you post has similar quality or close enough on what I am having now.....wait until you see the China made devices night time recording! I tell you... very very dark! The video images are darker than the actual situation.

As for Mivue, I guess the device managed to capture as close as what you can see during night time driving!

(note: it was a good video sample, as it was dark and raining.....yet you can still recognize the white car passing at the junction)
