The 70Mai Dash Cam Pro from China's affiliate Xiaomi is extremely popular not only with our readers. This is perhaps the camera with the best price-performance ratio you can buy for your car.
In addition to high-quality and very sharp 2K video, it has the option of connecting a GPS sensor, which, however, has so far had virtually no real use.
Speed and GPS coordinates directly in the video
The manufacturer 70Mai has apparently taken the criticism of its customers to heart. He released a new firmware update for the 70Mai Dash Cam Pro a few days ago, which finally brings real use of the GPS module.
If you have purchased a GPS module for your camera, after updating to firmware marked 1.0.5na you will be able to turn it on display of speed and exact GPS coordinates directly in the video recording. The portal informed about the new update Xiaomimagazine.com.
However, as the author of the article mentions, speed and coordinates can only be seen when watching video directly in the 70Mai application. Once the video is played through the classic gallery on the smartphone, this data is missing.
Slovaks and Czechs fell in love with her
The 70Mai Dash Cam Pro was very popular with users from Slovakia and the Czech Republic. No wonder. For less than € 45, it offers incredibly high-quality 2K video recording, on which it is possible to read the license plates of passing cars without any problems.
The image quality is ensured by the Sensor SONY IMX335 with parameters such as 140 ° angle of view a aperture f / 1.8, thanks to which the image is high quality even in poor lighting conditions. It is not missing in the equipment automatic exposure adjustment and white balance in case of tunnel passage or other rapid change in lighting conditions.
Among the specialties of the camera we find the so-called 24-hour modethat constantly protects your car. It monitors the situation constantly, for example in the parking lot. by gravity sensor the camera can detect vibrations and start recording immediately. Perfect function in case someone snatches your car and "jerks".
Advanced assistance system (ADAS - works with GPS module) will alert you to deviate from your lane. System distance tracking from the car in front of you is also here.
So now the module makes some sense ..
