It’s a really nice, easy and quick app


Videos
Recorded in 1920Γ—1080 30fps with an overall bit rate of 12.5 Mb/s.










Final thoughts
This is a very small and discreet dashcam with good quality videos for day and night. A good budget dashcam.

The B1W app is very easy and straightforward to use.

The B1W is also a good candidate to be used as a rear dashcam with its small design.

They don't have a website if not mistaken. Only found this in Alibaba. I know from a friend that BlueSkySea is one of the top manufacturers in China.

They manufacture dashcams for Viofo if not mistaken or is it a partnership. Can't remember the details.

That's why they are one of the top manufacturers in China.

Not sure about Xiaoyi Black Edition as don't have it.

Between 70mai and B1W, I like the B1W more as using capacitor.

I prefer B1W more. You can read my reviews on both of the dashcams. Also view the videos.

It is usable but I prefer using 3 wires hardwire kit more than the 2 wires.

Usually, China dashcams I rarely will on the parking mode unless it's like the Viofo A119 new parking mode laugh.gif
