Mio launches MiVue 798 and 798 Dual dash cams

Dash cam and navigation system brand Mio is extending its 7 Series range with the new MiVue 798 and MiVue 798 Dual.

The two new models offer sharper, high resolution footage if the worst was to happen and indisputable proof was required. Created to capture every detail, the camera provides 2.5K QHD 1600p footage with 150-degree wide angle viewing and F1.8 aperture, meaning that details like registration plates and tail lights can be captured regardless of whether it’s day or night.

Designed including Sony’s high quality STARVIS CMOS, the dash cam promises quality footage with clear, rich colours and superb contrast.

The inbuilt Wi-Fi feature means that users can easily upload or share footage and with the GPS housed inside the dash cam, drivers have information such as location and speed automatically logged and to hand if ever required.

With general fixed-distance warning and the patented dynamic warning reminder technology, the Smart Alert function will warn the driver according to the driving speed and distance they are from the camera. Free safety camera data updates for the lifetime of the device can be updated over the air (Wi-Fi OTA) via the MiVue Pro app.

Other features include:

  • Lane departure warning system (LDWS): monitors the drivers positioning on the road and notifies if they begin to waver
  • Fatigue alert (FA): when activated, the driver can be alerted every two, three or four hours of the journey
  • Forward collision warning system: detects the vehicle ahead and issues early warnings to alert drivers to dodge or make a braking manoeuvre to avoid a collision. It also advises drivers to keep an appropriate distance from the car in front
  • Eco Drive Indicator: with the device’s built-in ECO Drive feature, driver behaviour is analysed and alerts whether the driving style is economical
  • 3-axis G-sensor: detecting sudden changes in motion, the camera will instantly save a protected file that can’t be overwritten

The MiVue 798 also protects the car when it is stationary thanks to its motion detection sensor, which means the camera automatically activates if movement is picked up at the front of the car and records when paired with the MiVue smart box required.
