Electrostatic film


Manual in Chinese


The translated menu in 70Mai Pro


Test setup

Will be using Kingston 32GB Micro SDHC for the recordings


70Mai dashcam app

Initial firmware out of the box is version 1.0.1 released on 2018.08.09

You’ll need to use the Chinese version of the 70Mai app in order to add the 70Mai Pro as the Google Play Store version can only add the 70Mai dashcam. You can scan the QR codes here (click here) for the Chinese version 70Mai app.


Videos
Recorded in 2592×1944 30fps using H.265 with an overall bit rate of 19.6 Mb/s.

Recorded in 2560×1440 30fps using H.265 with an overall bit rate of 22.4 Mb/s.


Final thoughts
The first impression I got when I saw the 70Mai Pro is this looks like a Thinkware dashcam.

The 70Mai Pro is a good camera which records with good quality. The 1944p is in 4:3 aspect ratio seems a bit weird for modern dashcams but you can record more vertically though.

You’ll need to change to H.265 encoding in order to record in 1440p & 1944p.

Unable to try out the de-fog features as the weather didn’t permit to test this.

    The official Indiegogo page and some Aliexpress postings refer to a GPS Module.
    Did your package come without it? What does the GPS Module do and where does it attach?

      Jeremy Wong · October 4, 2018 at 9:18 pm

      Mine came without the GPS module. The ADAS requires the GPS module in order to function. The GPS module is a mount. There is a connector on the 70mai to connect to the GPS module.

    Hi Jeremy,
    Any idea where to purchase the GPS module?
    Secondly does the ADAS function without the GPS module e.g. Lane Departure, Car Departure and Parking Surveillance?

      Jeremy Wong · October 10, 2018 at 1:54 pm

      Aliexpress or tmall would have it.

      ADAS cannot work without the GPS module.

    Hi James, it’s me again. Just purchase the mi70 pro. How did you test the parking module? I’ve tried by open and close the front bonnet and shaking the car but no video or images captured in the dashcam. And do you think the 500Mah battery can support the 24hour parking mode without external power supply?
    Thanks James for your answer. Much appreciated

      Jeremy Wong · October 15, 2018 at 11:20 am

      Did you enable the parking surveillance mode in the settings? 500mAh I don’t think can support up to 24 hours. Maybe 30 minutes or so. That’s why you need the 70mai hardwire kit.

      I’m Jeremy btw.

    And what is the pry tool function?

      Jeremy Wong · October 15, 2018 at 10:09 am

      Pry tool is used when hiding the cable

  • Mohd Shahrul Nizam Bin Zuikafly · October 15, 2018 at 11:25 am

    Hi there, since this item is new I just update a few things since I have used for 4 days now.
    1. The language is in Chinese only if you buy from Malaysia thru Lazada or Shoppee.
    2. GPS Module can be bought from AliExpress or Indiegogo. However no info either can be used outside China or not.
    3. No need hardwire for parking mode since as tested the dashcam will automatically record from G sensor (set to high sensitive if you want to test it). Without power the dashcam record in parking mode after I closed the rear bonnet.

    Hi, what do you think about the battery? Is it reliable in hot weather at malaysia? Thanks

      Jeremy Wong · October 15, 2018 at 1:48 pm

      Any lithium battery is not recommended to use in hot countries… Better quality lithium battery will only be more durable in the heat…

        Ong · October 15, 2018 at 4:37 pm

        Noted. The lithium battery in 70mai pro works fine?
        Plan to buy this dashcam and the only I concern is the battery.
