Mijia with mount
You stick the electrostatic films onto your windscreen first before sticking the Mijia dashcam on to it. This to protect the tint you have on your windscreen.
USB car charger
90Â° angled micro USB Cable

Menu screens translated to English (more translated menu pictures in my review blog)
Initial firmware on the Mijia dashcam and latest firmware in Mi Home App
English firmware v1.0.13.En
Please use the Mi Dash Cam app to update your Mijia dashcam with 1.0.13.En which is in English. Mi Home will update 1.0.13 which is in Chinese.
Also, you can't update using the Mi Dash Cam app after updating from the Mi Home app as it will detect that it is the latest firmware.
The only way is to manual flash update the firmware.
Download 1.0.13.En from my Dropbox.
Unzip the file > copy the SD_CarDV.bin file to the microSD card root folder > insert to the Mijia dashcam > power on and wait for it to update > will auto reboot into English interface.
Yi dashcam vs Mijia dashcam
Yi Dashcam 1080p 60fps vs Mijia Dashcam 1080p 30fps
The Mijia dashcam looks clearer in the video but the video is darker. The Yi dashcam can see more details in darker areas (Hopefully Mi can fix this in a future firmware?)
