You tuck the cable along the liner at the top of your windscreen and down to the USB port.
You will not find anyone recommend you a battery powered dash cam, batteries are just not good enough for that purpose.

Looking for one is a fool’s errand.

The batteries are not supposed to last longer than that... they’re meant to run with constant power whilst the car is running.

not just 3mins in total, it records in 3minute segments. When the memory card is full it will begin looping over the 1st 3min video and overwrite that one.

just a heads up guys.. if you are buying micro sd for your dashcam DO NOT BUY SANDISK RED/GREY CARDS.

you need high endurance micro sd card such as lexar, transcend or the white sandisk card.

Do you know if it’s any good?

Check out the reviews, like most people

£1.50 cheaper than last week when I bought two. Nearly 1440p quality 30 FPS for £30. Note if turn on the driving warnings it goes down to 1080 30 FPS I think.
Get app on your phone and can connect to dashcam WiFi to download videos or download pictures. Video length is 3 minutes long. Unable to change. Maximum SD card size is 64gb I think. Get class 10 or above.
More information in the below thread with example pictures

Had this in my van for about a month, works well and use smartphone to capture pictures.
Transfers video and pics to phone fast when needed.
Paid £44 for it and just ordered another one for wifes car. Needs decent micro sd card as cheap ones don't work with it.

I was asking your personal opinion if you’d heard anything! But thanks 😏

Got one, love it.

Tempted but 3 mins of video? I'm not really into dash cams so have no idea about others. Price seems all right and I like / trust Xiaomi devices.

That's a good info about driving warnings option. Cheers for that:)mine just been delayed by Amazon...

Why only 3 minutes? Is not an option to set this at least for 30 mins?

3 mins before it starts a new clip. It creates new clips until your SD card is full, then removes the oldest clip to make way for the new ones.

Also you have 128gb for 29.99..do a search on amazon or google..might find them cheaper

That picture looks like a full size SD card to me, not a micro SD. So no, it won't fit.
I think he's suggesting you get one like this: amazon.co.uk/gp/…3O/

You need a 'micro sd'. The one you purchased is too large in size, not a micro. Search 'micro sd' on the Amazon app.

Thank you, it came up as 'frequently bought together. I'll cancel. The Aldi dashcam is looking like a good deal with card included but there's no night vision. It's for my daughter who is a student nurse and is out on placement at all hours.

Still waiting for mine. Paid 37£ from aliexpress. Only good reviews I've seen so far. I kinda trust xiaomi.

Running 128 card no problem.


thats good to know, thanks, i only use 128gb cards for long journeys

Do you leave this in situ on the windscreen all the time or take the unit off the windscreen you leaving the car. Do scrotes not try and nick it? I don't think I have the patience to attach and dismount every journey but don't want scrotes smashing windscreen for it

The picture is an SD card adapter so i imagine yes it would work. There is an over write protection lock on the left hand side of the adapter as well as the gap at the bottom where the micro sd card is inserted. It's just the micro sd card you would need.

I got one, but returning it now as battery is just atrocious, lasts may be 5 min if you are lucky!

£41.99 now

This hasn't expired! The deal is to get £12 off from the promotion32567615-pjfVr.jpg

Mine arrived - so far so good, also fits G1W type mounts so improves choice of how you can mount it, don't want it stuck on with 3M Glue pad, they pull lumps off the windscreen screen printed areas, mine is on using a rear view mirror mount I had. Had to change the cable to the one that came with it though as it is micro USB not mini USB like most other webcams.
