Xiaomi Mijia Car DVR Dashcam – Setup, firmware update, sample footage


Oh no! Menu is only in chinese but don’t worry. The GearBest product page has English translation. Link is in the video description. Currently 45% off. Only $50.87 AUD. Scroll down to find the menus translated into English. I suggest to use a new app instead of the one shown. Head over to Google Play Store and install the “Mi Dash Cam” app. I know it says “(Unreleased)” but it works fine. Settings and firmware update can be done via the app Connect phone and camera via Wifi I have 50% chance of getting this right :p OK, we are connected. Next, check if there is a newer firmware. Yes, there is. So, download the newer firmware. Firmware 1.0.11 downloaded to the phone. Next, upload (push) firmware to camera. Yikes! Failed 🙁 Because I didn’t have an SD card in the camera. Yay, firmware uploaded to Micro SD card. Now, reboot the camera (power off, then on) Once it restarts, the firmware update begins. After all that setup, had to relax with a few matches on WoT 😉 But this is a dash cam, not a desktop cam It should be mounted in the car. So, let’s go for a drive. The only mode is 1920 x 1080, 30 fps and 160°. It’s a no frills camera. No GPS. There is no Recording Start/Stop button. Recording starts when camera is powered up. It does have a G-sensor and when triggered will save the footage as read only. Watch the van and the Toyota 86 going for the same parking spot! Handy that you can rotate the camera. Both daytime and nightime video is pretty decent For its price, I think it’s good value for money. What do you think? Please share your thoughts in the comments below. Thanks for watching.
