In order to use the 70mai parking surveillance mode, you’ll need to install the 70mai hardwire kit. You can’t enable parking surveillance mode without this hardwire kit installed now.

Videos
70mai Dashcam Pro Plus+ A500S recorded in H.265 2592×1944 30fps with an overall bitrate of 24.8 Mb/s.










70mai rear camera RC06 recorded in H.265 1920×1080 25fps with an overall bitrate of 10.3 Mb/s.










Final thoughts
This 70mai A500 series is an upgraded 70mai Dashcam Pro. Now the newer 70mai Dashcam Pro Plus+ A500S has dual dashcam functionality with the RC06 rear cam.

Attached Image

The 70mai Dashcam Pro Plus+ A500S now uses the Novatek NT96580 processor instead of the Huawei HiSilicon Hi3556 V200 processor in the 70mai Dashcam Pro Plus A500. I am liking the change to Novatek by 70mai. But I do hope in the future there will be a 70mai dashcam which will be using super-capacitors instead of lithium batteries.

The ADAS of the 70mai Dashcam Pro Plus+ A500S, I can say that is about 80+% accurate like my Thinkware U1000’s ADAS. 70mai's parking mode will starts recording when there's a trigger of the G-sensor.

Your headlight beam seems to be out of alignment in the night drive video ie too high, beam scattered all over...

Anyway how's this compared to A800? Am new to this, should i be worried about the battery since cars will be parked outdoor most of the time?
Am now exploring to equipped this dashcam on all cars especially driven by the kids
Front windscreen has another darker tint, should the camera be placed there or lower as i don't it to obstruct the view?

Good info here mate! thumbup.gif

Later will adjust the level. Looks different anglefrom the previous LED bulb.

A800 is 4K resolution for the main cam. Both using the same rear cam RC06.

The battery will surely die in the heat within a year or 2 depending on your luck. But heard 70mai battery is replaceable with some DIY.

As long the lens is below the dark tint should be fine.

OK undecided yet if 4k front is really necessary and to hardwire it.. Found a 2 mth old video which is informative on A800

A500S global no stock though in Lzd but any idea what's the labour cost like to hardwire in KV and shop?

i bought the old model 70mai after came across blurjoey review. Actually dashcam very easy to install. no need installl actually, just attach to ur windscreen and connect the usb cable. and its easy to hide the cable along the door panel groove..of coz can just let the wire dangling also tongue.gif
if u are going to buy the more complex model with surveilance/parking mode, of coz have to install the hardwire kit to the fuse box..this one need to bring to expert if no knowledge about car electrical..

quite a good cam i would say for the price, but night recording suffer a bit.
other function like connecting to 70mai app, downloading videos etc perform smoothly. i've been using it for around 2 years i think still functioning well.

Actually, it's easy to DIY. Only the hardwire kit is hard to install as requires some technical skills.

Nowadays no one buys 32GB anymore. 32GB can record less than 2+ hours of video for dual dashcams (2K front and 1080p rear).

Minimum go for 64GB which is 4+ hours of videos. Or max 8+ hours with 128GB.

My prefer choice is Samsung Evo Plus or Pro Endurance.

MB-MC64HA (Read 100MB/s, Write 20MB/s*)

128GB
MB-MC128GA (Read 100MB/s, Write 90MB/s)
MB-MC128HA (Read 100MB/s, Write 60MB/s*)
*note the slower write speed on the new model, if you need to keep the 90MB/s write speed, move up to the new 256GB capacity model.

Before I pull the trigger on my first entry level dashcam, what are the expectations or concerns I should expect and anticipate fro this model or brand?

Decided not to hard wire it for now...

thanks for confirming

really searched high and low, and just pulled the trigger for the A800
the 4:3 square recording was a real put off, and the various down scale cost cutting items from the A800.

that said, i do think the WDR/software HDR function that the A500 pro plus has and the A800 doesn't is kinda nice for night recording.
so that's a win over the A800 which isn't surprising as it is released just this year while the A800 was mid last year.

Im kinda confused with your statement, so you bought which one bro?

Anyway I started the day super busy till afternoon only to raised to needed to checkout LzD but it was too late cos A500S sold out😂😂😂. Ended up buying 2 of the A500 Pro Plus instead from Dasher 😂😂

Meanwhile bought 64gb SanDisk A1 separately... BTW is this considered entry or mid range? My first dashcam 😝

and just pulled the trigger for the A800 <--

i bought A800 + RC06 rear cam
with a SanDisk high endurance 128GB to have larger storage on 4k + rear camera full hd

A500S is basically pro plus, don't worry.
the major difference between A500 (pro) vs A500S (pro plus) is built in GPS and support for rear camera

A500 is mid range from 70Mai brand.
overall 70Mai is a trend setter/trying to lower the cost for dashcams.
think Geely Proton vs the big conti cars on tech and offerings.

entry level from 70Mai is lite, or 1S

I thought the diff between A500 and A500S is just the rear camera while both equipped with built in GPS..No?

Anyway if it's mid range then I'll be damned... Cos should go with entry level for beginners....🤦‍♂️

Think it uses the mic from the front cam as there is no hole for the mic on the RC06.

hi, im using a500S for a while now..still didnt manage to calibrate ADAS.any tips or which im doing wrong?

For calibration, you need to drive on the road with clearly visible lines.
Just turn off and then turn on ADAS to force the camera to start calibration.
Move lens according to the onscreen instructions and drive for some time (until camera announces successful calibration) around 40km/h.
I have done calibration four times and had no problems.

Check if you have a properly connected the GPS module (check the recorded video on camera to see GPS coordinates and speed). ADAS will not work without GPS.

It will only go into parking mode in 5 minutes after you've shut your engine if not wrong.

All dashcam with parking mode will drain your car battery. Have to check back on the accuracy of the voltage protection d.

I have sorted out my issue....
The hardwire cable is not properly connected to piggy back fuse. So maybe power not stable or etc.
Now I have use direct cut and join wire to piggy back fuse.

Vcc to fuse have constant 12v regardless engine ON or off.
ACC to fuse only have 12v when engine turn On.
Btw... My peugeot have have something weird ON and OFF 12v condition for fuse tapping.

For parking surveillance.... After engine off... I think about 1m the device is said enter to surveillance mode in 5m. At that point the a500s is OFF.

About the firmware .... What are the latest version?
Mine is running on 0.0.34ww dated 2021-01-22

The a500s I found out have issue on sensitivity to trigger parking mode recording... After it in parking mode (10-15m later) ... I shake my car..... It not triggering recording. Setting been set to high sensitivity.

Anyone one have try the unit with bigger cap than 128gb mSD ??? Before I purchase this coming raya? 5/5 promo

Anyone here can tell me about inside your phone app. What is the device model name for your A500S? Mine is the China version and device model is showing as "70MAIA500S". Is that different from Malaysia set? However, I was flashed to the latest worldwide version of 1.0.6ww with multilanguages.

I guess the local Malaysia is selling the global version, the device model is A500S-1 and the China version device model is 70MAIA500S. That's why I'm doubted about why my A500S won't automatic checking for latest firmware. I need to manually download the global firmware from a Russian forum and the forum require bypass the Russian captcha in order to register then login to download.

This is what I don't like about why 70mai do not provide firmware and share to public.

hope can review the new ddpai Z40. spec quite similar to a500s but using super capacitor. I heard super capacitor more reliable than lithium ion in a500s.

Adding this to CX3, gonna hardwire it but not for parking monitoring as I want the ciggy port for other purpose. Car parked indoor most of the time hence not too concern with battery (ddpai or A800S a bit off budget actually 😜) and kinda like the phone app. Bought at $353 incl SanDisk Ultra A1 64gb separately.

Not sure if this is global version though although seller confirms it is. 🤔

Update : Unit worked well, ADAS seems to setup much faster. Wiring installation cost $180 incl the "kit" and completed within 1.5 hour at Ara Dsara on 2/12

Just realised that my firmware is still on the very old one (0.0.34ww) and got a notification to upgrade this.

May I know is there any disadvantages/issues with the latest firmware? Wondering if I should upgrade it or maintain the current one.

It's down to lithium-ion battery (70mai) vs supercapacitor battery (DDPAI).

No clones yet but I did saw someone who pay rm1xx for a A500 and got ripped off by the seller sending him those rm100 crap dashcam. Better get from reputable sellers instead of super cheap prices as it may be scams.

Am going to ask something really basic - what will happen if I don't have the hardwire kit ("HK").

Do I only lose-out on the parking surveillance mode, or does whole setup not work at all ?

Without the HK - will the camera(s) still function when the car engine is ignited / power turned on? Then the camera will off once we power-off/turn-off the engine?

Cannot use parking mode only.

Using the USB car charger will only power on the dashcam when you start the engine and turn off when you off the engine.

Does set simultaneously record using both front and rear while we're driving, or does it only records 1 view (front or rear) and we have to manually switch to view/record the other whilst driving?

sorry if it's confusing.
what i meant is if it actively records from both front and rear together

or

if its only set to front, does the rear continue recording too? or.. if i set to rear cam, does the front cam stop working/recording?

I just bought ddpai mola n3 pro with front and rear still waiting delivered

I guess rear camera plug to to main camera also provide data and power or both support wifi so the front and rear camera auto sync during record or the 12v USB socket is a powerline router if you get it what i mean hahahaha

All dual dashcam will record front and back once got power when you start your engine.

Will be separate 2 files. 1 for front and 1 for rear.

You unplug the rear cam then only the front cam will record.

The rear cam is plugged into the front cam for power and saved the videos into the microsd card.

Power is plugged into the front cam via the USB charger at the ciggie port or via hardwire kit.

At the moment no wireless dashcam yet.

Rear cam is 1 cable to the front cam only ma.

Even if you use a front cam as the rear cam is also 1 cable to the power socket if long enough.

All electronic devices run hot when in use. It got electricity running inside. Some more its in direct sunlight during the day.

You try recording using your camera app on your phone for 10-15 mins and see hot or not laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Thank you for the guide and answering our queries.

We did go ahead with the Pro Plus+Rear Cam set - have it installed on a CX-8.

The car's bulky auto-sensor on the windscreen meant i had to either mount the cam towards the right/left side of the sensor (rather than dead in the middle of the windscreen which is more preferable?) - I opted to have it on the right (driver side) for easy accessibility.

Took some 30 minutes to have it all installed under the hot evening sun laugh.gif Did struggle with the wiring initially but got the hand of it pretty quick, the rear cams wire is rather long and had quite a lot of excess to store/hide away.

Only 'complaint' so far is the main cam (front facing) angle isn't as wide as our previous Yi dashcam, and no rotatable sideways - only up and down - but hey, how often do you adjust the dashcam right? laugh.gif

Perhaps reset your dashcam, do format sd card when you get the new ones and reinstall your app while you're at it... Seems you're not having a good experience with the dashcam and sd card... Chill😁

If the ciggy port in your car OK?

I've installed 3 A500S and none had issue while experience has been great so far using ciggy port and fuse tap

I bought 70mai Dashcam Pro Plus+ A500S Rear Cam Set + the car park hardwire kit.
I know the standard installation is to hook it up with car's battery.
Does anyone connect this to a 12V dry battery (like battery used by CCTV as backup?) Just a thought. hmm.gif (To prevent the car battery from going flat?)

Btw, is it difficult to install for Honda HR-V myself? With the hardwire kit. unsure.gif Seen any video guide?
Thanks in adv, lowyatters ~

Hey, I have two cars with 70mai A500s
I equipped the bigger car with Samsung Pro Endurance 128GB Card.

Should I get another Pro Endurance 128GB for smaller card?
Or SanDisk High Endurance.

Since Evo Plus will void warranty when used in Dashcam?

Depends on how much you want to record.

Both Pro/High Endurance is good. This will come down to personal brand preference.

Yes Evo Plus is not covered in warranty if used in dashcam.

But i notice that sometime when it detect something in parking surveillance mode, the cam led will turn green and just stay still won't off itself. When i start my car then the screen appear but the led still remain green and not recording. Sometime it also can't detect my parking surveillance cable don't know what issue🤦🏻‍♂️

my dash cam pro date and time always reset every time i switch on my engine. No matter how i adjust to recent date or time, it will then become 2018 01 01. Is it mean i need to change the battery? I saw in shopee got battery replacement for RM20 only. Is it reliable?

How long can the footage stored in a 128GB memory card?

Is 128GB the maximum can be use on this dashcam?
