You stick the electrostatic films onto your windscreen first before sticking the Mijia dashcam on to it. This to protect the tint you have on your windscreen.

Videos

A lot have asked me to do a comparison video between Yi dashcam and Mijia dashcam

Yi Dashcam 1080p 60fps vs Mijia Dashcam 1080p 30fps – Day & Night

The Mijia dashcam looks clearer in the video but the video is darker. The Yi dashcam can see more details in darker areas (Hopefully Mi can fix this in a future firmware?)

Xiaomi Mijia Dashcam vs 360 J511C Dashcam

Notes: The video resolution is fixed at 1920×1080 30fps. Also, the video interval is fixed at 2 minutes. There is no option to change this.

Having trouble getting mine to format and use a 64gb micro sd card, the 32gb i have works perfectly maybe its just a firmware glitch.

    Jeremy Wong · March 30, 2017 at 10:50 am

    Do you have another 64GB to test and see? No issues using my Samsung Evo Plus 64GB with the Mijia dashcam.

adam watling · March 30, 2017 at 11:26 pm

Hi, which korean dash cam would you recommend for front and back footage ?

Thanks.

    Jeremy Wong · August 23, 2017 at 10:36 am

    There are so many good dual Korean dashcams out there… My favorite is from ThinkWare, BlackVue, iRoad, etc…

How to update firmware from1.0.6 to 1.0.8?

    Jeremy Wong · April 22, 2017 at 5:58 am

    Update using the MiHome app…

    adam watling · April 22, 2017 at 6:43 am

    Yeah use the mi home app it may take several tries i found as the 1.06 firmware likes to drop the wifi connection and time. Oh and ensure your locale is set as mainland china any other location didnt work for me.

kennethv · May 13, 2017 at 11:10 pm

do you have a shop in kl?

    Jeremy Wong · May 13, 2017 at 11:16 pm

    I just review the gadgets. You can click on the links to purchase the Mijia dashcam from GearBest…

tdivw · May 20, 2017 at 7:16 pm

Hi ! Thanks for the translation of the menus and for the videos you made, i have decided to buy the mijia. Keep up the good work !

Mijagi · June 3, 2017 at 5:03 am

Hi. Just bought this dash cam. so far happy. Can someone tell me whats the difference between 1.0.8 and 1.0.9?

BK · August 23, 2017 at 10:30 am

Hi Jeremy,

Is it safe to park the car under the sun? I’m afraid if the built in battery will expand, crack or explode due to high temperature.

    Jeremy Wong · August 23, 2017 at 10:35 am

    If you’re staying in a country with summer all year round like me in Malaysia. Best to consider getting a capacitor based dashcam. I’ve only encountered a few times the lithium battery in the dashcam unable to charge after using about 1 year+ and never taken down from the car.

Nath · September 3, 2017 at 8:34 am

Compair to 360 J511, which one is better?
