What dashcam you have in mind bro?
*
One of blurjoey's budget recommendations... Thing is.. I'm still torn between having a rearward facing cam or not.. Between "messing up" looks and dealing with how to hide the cables. Currently I'm using a shade and like having a clean look out the glass. How would a cam there affect it.. Will I lose the shade too? and if I must.. then means I have to find time to tint the car properly too.. But can't do that yet.. cuz you know....In the midst of having that resolved amicably now.. So can't mess until it's all over..

I understand your predicament bro. Best of luck on that issue.

I parallel park in this thread as am looking for a 2-channel dashcam to replace the mini 0906 which have been behaving erratically after the warranty period expired.  bangwall.gif
Considering the Viofo A129 or Thinkware X700 as they both have LCD screen which I consider as quite helpful when the missus is on the steering wheel.
*
At this time, Viofo would be the max I'd be willing to spend on cams.. Thinkware, etc level is just much for me to rationalize.

QUOTE(blurjoey @ Apr 18 2019, 09:08 PM)
Don't think A119 v3 will be dual. Their dual is the A129 Duo d.

Wow.. There's a newer model coming.. It doesn't end huh.. What new goodies.. biggrin.gif

Trying to get a budget dashcam and below is the finding

XiaoYi Yi Mirror DashCam
Xiaomi Mi Mijia Car Camera 1S
Xiaomi 70MAI PRO
XiaoYi Yi Car Dashcam

which one will be better? or any recommendation? budget below 300 but might top up if it interest me..

major concern is during driving time able to capture the plate number & BEST if parking time.. if kena hit will auto turn on but seem most of it dont have the feature.. lastly long life span.
*
IMO, since you are willing to topup.. Did you see page one? As for that parking mode feature, you'll have to pay more for that..

I am just wondering, can we argue that we install the dashcam for our safety? Cause SC don't provide this dashcam service. We need to install that for safety which SC did not provide. If got accident, SC going to compensate, is it? Haha...can argue like this?
*
Nope, can't argue like that. IMO, car was sold as is and warranty promised as long as it remains as is. "Drastically" altering the car's default state can be used as an excuse to deny warranty. Either in part or in full. Some, even changing rims size equals warranty void. Cuz tires are important and several other car safety systems (like say AWD or torque control, etc) rely on tyre type and size... SC never say not to install dashcam, they just don't want it hardwired.. As some might install it wrongly and leads an electrical failure. Then you come claim warranty (they incur extra expenses) or worse, you get in an accident. Modern cars today do rely on plenty interconnected electrical stuff.

Thank you very much all sifus for sharing your knowledge!  notworthy.gif  notworthy.gif  notworthy.gif

@blurjoey I Googled the OBD port and that method seems simple and neat enough. But this is the first time I heard bout using OBD port to power the dashcam. Is there any catch with using this method / y isn't this method being used by many people?

@Winter@7 I only go to the shop to remove the hardwire when I need to claim warranty right? For normal servicing at the SC, no need right? scared they make note bout the hardwiring during servicing...  tongue.gif Do you have any recommendations on any good accesories shop which can do this within Klang Valley?
*
No, if strict enough, you have to remove it for every single visit to the SC. So better you learn how to remove and reconnect yourself. Cuz your car might break down suddenly, electrical fault and requires towing to the SC. Going to tow first to the shop to remove then only SC? Hassle.. smile.gif Like being said, some centers will take note of every single mod done on the car. Whether "plug n play" or not. All grounds to deny warranty claim should they desire.

I got a friend who installed A119S and A119v2 in his Subaru XV. You'll need to consider getting 2 micro SD cards also since you don't have issues with the power for the rear.

Or you can wait a bit as A129 Pro 4K is releasing soon in a few weeks. The front is 4K resolution and rear is 1080p resolution (can use either Duo rear cam or IR rear cam).

I wait so long liao.. Each time want to pull trigger, there's another incoming.. Hai... laugh.gif

Fast-moving objects during night time are hard. Need to see.

Here's a sneak peek for this morning.



Hopefully, tonight don't capture any paranormals in the video recordings sweat.gif

Looks really good..

QUOTE(blurjoey @ Aug 15 2019, 02:34 PM)
1080p to 2160p is a huge difference laugh.gif  laugh.gif  laugh.gif Also the A129 Pro is on High Bitrate mode which will use more space also. There is a Maximum Bitrate mode which I will test tomorrow if tonight's recordings are done.

Normal as all dashcams will get warm/hot when in operation.

This A129 Pro I feel is hotter

Another sneak peek.

No dashcams can capture clearly at night while moving fast

Unless slow down then it's clear

Not so bad.. But a bit disappoint..

QUOTE(Zaryl @ Aug 15 2019, 11:01 PM)
Perhaps in year 2020 there will be new sensor technology that can capture car plates clearly at night even when moving at 100km/h.

By then, keep up the good work reviewing dashcams. biggrin.gif

What wait till 2020.. It's already been here.. It's called Speed Trap... Going 160km/h, It's still capable of grabbing your plate and a shot of the driver too.. laugh.gif laugh.gif

Hm... Checked my settings and seems the search bar was disabled. Have re-enabled. Thanks for notifying.

1. China firmware is in Chinese while International is in English. Also the Chinese have the eDog function which only works in China.

2. Yes, you can remove it from the mount. 70mai dashcam you can unscrew the hand screw and take it down. 70mai Pro is just sliding the 70mai Pro from the mount to take it down.

3. My current go-to micro SD card is the Samsung Evo Plus.

4. You can do either depending on your preference for 70mai and 70mai Pro.

5. Actually buying a premium dashcam like the Q800 Pro is not just to record a video when driving. More for the extra features like true parking mode, Extreme ADAS, Smart camera warning, cloud, etc. So it's an individual preference. The Q800 Pro is more of a discreet design. Anyway, I saw a few Yi dashcams got stolen more than heard Thinkware dashcams getting stolen.

Been seeing a lot of BMW or Benz or Civic Type R will only consider buying dashcams below rm300 but those who drive P2 will install premium Korean dashcams. Very confused by this actually. The above is not all the cars that I saw but I can say it is about 40-50% is like that.
*
IMO, most are "freebies" bundled in the deal by the car salesman.. Even the BMW Advanced Eye 2.0 costs about RM3K and you rarely see them bundle that in.. laugh.gif

I got a few "friends" who drive higher range cars and asked me if I'm selling off any of my dashcams for cheap.

Another friend who just got a new Civic Type R, was considering getting a dashcam for a few times but in the end, told me he cannot brain why spend 1k+ for a camera for a car. I even show him the video of the girl stealing the gold H emblem, he still tiada apa. I gave up d after he asked me for the 3rd time. I'm waiting for him to bang wall only now laugh.gif  laugh.gif  laugh.gif

This cam super big in size even the rear cam is the same size as the front cam. And I saw the video quality is so so only.  laugh.gif  laugh.gif  laugh.gif

Yeah.. I want to say it's perhaps the "kedekutness" that allows them to easily afford said higher price range cars? laugh.gif laugh.gif.. Nevertheless I agree, that BMW cam isn't RM3K worthy at all.. Same thing I tell some folks. You buy a dashcam and hope not to need it. But if you do, then you want a decent quality capture instead of a blur or "look like me, not me" situation.. smile.gif

Got more and more idiots like this on the roads. Simply hog the lane and refuse to leave, causing slow driving behind them. This case shows an even dense driver that simply stops despite being the problem in the first.. I hope he’s made to pay for all the damages plus additional financial compensation and have license taken away. ranting.gif
