Xiaomi Yi dashcam

Just bought the dash cam, the video quality is excellent, both day night. Has wifi and most importantly heat resistant under hot sun.

I had the same reaction, so I went to Google it. Turns out it's just being sold by Xiaomi, but the camera is made by Xiaoyi. No relation to each other. And it's more like a GoPro knockoff, that can also be used as a car camera.

Bought it more expensive at $89.90, it's a good camera with 165 degrees view. Can connect via wifi, view is good at night. It's a good investment as it's super clear with 2k resolution. Now at $69.90 at qoo10..haha

Sent from Sony C6833 using GAGT

Am using it now for my drive trip in southern France. It's plugged into the 12v socket of my rental car. Each video is 3 minutes long. At 1080i and 60fps w/o sound, each 3 min clip is about 430MB. I save it onto a Kingston high-speed card of 64GB - the maximum size that the camera accepts. The camera demands read speeds of at least 80MB/s of your microSD card. But get a faster card, just in case.

I save each video onto my portable hard drive, for memories' sake. The video quality is good, considering the $84.90 I paid (for the grey variant). I just leave the camera in the car, even when parked in less desirable parts of notorious cities like Marseille.

Believe the $69.90 on Qoo10 requires an additional $15 top-up, even for the champagne variant.

You are right. Nothing to do with Xiaomi. Also see some review this model has over heat issue.

Quite impressed with the video quality. but I doubt the suction cup will hold under the hot sun.
