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

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?

just use ip4 is an option
in youtube...i did follow a channel where he record everything that happens when its behind a wheel
but if not wrong, hes using ip4s

guys,
does installing dash cam with the wiring will void warranty?
*
no it doesn't not
it only plugs into your cig lighter anyway, the dash cam itself is external and in no way attached to your car's mechanical part
it's like saying does charging your phone inside the car via cig lighter plug void your warranty

Hardwire will definitely void warranty as it will be plugged directly into the fuse box.

Ciggie port, I've asked H&T and they said if the power adaptor which caused the issue to the ciggie port, it won't be covered by their warranty.
*
yes, other than it's hardwired of course

my relative want to hardwire a dashcam onto his company's lorry(so workers cannot just unplug it), he is still waiting for some "fuse" if not wrong
told him to proceed to accessories shop but he say they might not have the "fuse" needed

Fuse taps? I think you can get it from Jalan Pasar but need to know which fuse type is used.
*
not sure, fuse if not wrong because he say the voltage isn't the same, scare might blow up
so hes waiting for the correct fuse from china if not wrong before proceeding to accessories shop to ask them install

if i'm not wrong lah, lorry battery is 24v while normal car is 12v...if i remember correctly

A dashcam that uses a lithium battery is not good to use in hot countries like Malaysia. Over time the lithium battery will fail which causes the dashcam to unable to save the settings and the last video file. And the lithium battery will get bloated, leaking or worst case explodes.

Capacitor dashcams don't have these issues like the above. The only drawback is you cannot power on the dashcam without power.

A lithium battery dashcam can power on for about 5-15 minutes depending on the size of the mAh it has.

I dont plug in and plug out because afraid the miniusb/microsub might fail. I doubt they are using good quality connectors with high mating cycles.

i don't plug in or out...cable is always connected
it's i detach the dash cam and put it away only
i'm not on the original mount BTW, the one that sticks onto the windshield type

Hey guys,

I am interesting to get Xiaomi 70mai for my 3 cars- kelisa, mitsubishi and bmw.

Is there any shop in Penang island that sell or importantly install the camera directly into the car electrical circuit and with additional device to cut off the power supply if the car battery power is low?

Thanks in advance
*
why not just buy it online and go to accessories shop to ask them install for a fee
much easier and cheaper
