Decent price for 70mai Pro. I know Gearbest isn't for everyone but I've had a good experience with them having ordered a range of items from them.

I'd say the 70mai Pro is hands down the best value dash cam on the market. I've had mine installed for a while now and extremely pleased. Quality feel, excellent image quality, good sensitive parking monitor, nice subtle design that should suit all cars unlike the traditional 'hang down' cameras.

Currently £55.99 @ Amazon

Never used Gearbest before. Worth using PayPal to buy through them? Been looking at this dashcam for a week on amazon so tempted to take the plunge.
Could this be hard wired? and is there a separate one for the rear?

Yeah use PayPal for the extra protection. Be prepared to wait up to a few weeks for delivery.

As said I've ordered from them plenty of times. From cheap items to phones. An item went missing once but got a refund through Paypal with no issues.

Could this be hard wired? and is there a separate one for the rear?


Yeah I hard wired mine using a piggyback fuse kit. Any dash cam should be able to be hardwired.

You can't add a rear camera to this. However even models that do let you add a rear camera usually reduce the front video resolution to accommodate the extra Camera and many rear add ons affect the DAB signal.

For the price I'd suggest just buying a second one for the rear.
I have this dash cam and it’s good for the price. I must add that with the latest iOS update it broke the Wi-Fi connectivity which 70mai took weeks to fix. This made the dash cam pretty useless for a few weeks until they released an update. Would still buy this again if I knew this would happen but I was pretty annoying.

Thankfully I haven't had this issue using android. To be honest I don't download footage very often so rarely even open the app.
Great dashcam.

Ah so that’s why I couldn’t check footage on my 70mai that I use on the rear of my car for a while.

This unit looks a little bigger so might block your rear view. I’ve had the smaller 70mai (ie non pro unit) as a rear camera in my Passat estate and to be honest it kinda gets in the way a little when looking in the rear view mirror. Not really an issue but a bigger unit would be.

It's actually quite a small unit. Yes not as small as a rear dash cam but.compared to other front dash cams it's pretty compact. It would block very little of the rear window.

Yes still small but with the addition of the screen over the 70mai it does make it a bit bigger so just worth folks considering if using for the rear of a vehicle. On the front it’ll be hidden behind the mirror so no issues whatsoever.
this or nextbase?anyone comment on "real use" quality? is it actual hd or just like rest of cheaper chinese stuff?

Personally I think Nextbase is massively over priced. Their flagship model was a complete failure yet they continue to sell it.

I've been really happy with the quality of the footage.
39572383.jpgHere's a screenshot taken from a video recorded using the 70mai pro. The combined passing speed would be upwards of 100mph yet can clearly read the plate.

EDIT: HUKD reduce the image quality....
Edited by: "barny321" 2nd Jan
Anyone got a fitted photo? I'd like to see how discreet it is.
I've got one and compared to my daughter's nextbase it's not as good but it's the third of the price. The parking surveillance mode us good , you go to car and open close boot it records it so guess it'd record someone crashing into it

I have the gold lens one so you can see it , but it's really small , it tucks in behind mirror so I can't be distracted by screen. Guess I could take black marker to it , but not that bothered

39572671-0VZGn.jpg39572671-FW6Dp.jpg39572671-cEZIy.jpgDue to the sensors and tinting around the edge of my windscreen I've fitted it slightly lower down. Behind the mirror would be even more discreet.

To be honest I think you'll struggle to get a more discreet dash cam other than the ones that clip over the mirror.

You said below yours has a gold lens. This deal is for the pro version not the lite version (gold lens). They're actually quite different cameras despite the visual similarities. The pro model has a better sensor, chipset, lens, recording resolution etc.

I very much doubt you'll receive the GPS unit with it for this price. GPS is usually £10+ extra. In the UK the GPS adds very little features anyway.

Can you expand on the GPS lack of features comment? Curious as that's the one I've been looking at (on Amazon) as I liked the idea of GPS / speed being shown, but if it's worthless in the UK I may as well just go for this one and suck up the long delivery time.

Before I bought mine (months ago) I remember reading something about how some of the features added by the GPS module were only available in China.

This may have changed since I last read about it. To be honest I wouldn't want a camera with GPS. Remember that it could be used against you.

I'd much rather have no speed record than the other parties solicitor try blaming me for an incident over something stupid like doing 34 in a 30. I'm sure we've all accidentally went over a speed limit sometime or another.

A dash cam will be used to prove which of the parties caused the incident. All you need is footage for this, not a speed read out. Or in a hit and run incident where you want the dash cam to be able to capture the reg plate.

I honestly think GPS in dash cams is a bit of a novelty feature.
£62.33 is the sterling price I see :/

I'll not expire just yet incase it drops back down.

Well, true, manufactured there but the international version can have language chosen by the operator when using it for the 1st time I'm guessing

That looks pretty straightforward, I might need a pair of these cameras
Thanks for posting OP, looks like it’s gone up now -can anyone recommend a dashcam that’s similarly discreet, but a little cheaper? I’m not bothered about WiFi or GPS, and don’t think I’d need a resolution above full HD, but don’t know where to start looking.

is it the same hardwire kit as used by nextbase

I would imagine so. Make sure the kit is fl micro usb not mini usb. You'll probably get a cheaper hard wire kit than Nextbase
