If your dad has always looked out for you, buy him something that looks out for him!

 

If your dad has always looked out for you, maybe this Father’s Day you should buy him something that really looks out for him – a MiVUE “daddy dash cam”!

 

A dash cam can be the ultimate way to keep your dad safe when he’s out and about but remember, not all dash cams are created equally. 

 

If the number one reason for having a dash cam is getting the right evidence of who is at fault in an accident, you need to make sure your dash cam captures the right information as well as clear unambiguous footage.   In the heat of the moment, it can be difficult enough getting the other person’s details, let alone recalling specifics of what happened for an official statement, and with a dash cam all the information is captured. 

 

Look for features like GPS tagged footage which will give the precise location of the incident, 3-axis G-sensor to provide information on the direction and speed of impact which significantly assists investigators determining fault.

 

Today’s range of MiVUE dash cams not only include this type of information but many have features once seen only on GPS – like speed and safety camera alerts to save $$$ from expensive fines or even loss of licence, Advanced Driver Alert Systems (ADAS) which provide audible and visual alerts if your vehicle is veering into another lane or too close to the vehicle ahead, and even reminders to switch on headlights in low light situations.

 

With this year’s new range of six MI VUE products, the features are more advanced than ever, designed by the experts in navigation technology (Navman) to be easy to install and useful for all types of drivers, and keep them safer on the road.

 

MiVUE dash cams record from 1080p up to an incredible 2160p (4K) quality depending on the model.  If the quality of footage is the most important feature for your dad, consider the MIVUE760 ULTRA which records in 2160p (4K) as well as Sony STARVIS™ CMOS low light recording.   This is designed especially for dark situations and provides superb contrast, clear and rich colours to enhance number plates, street signs and other vehicles.  The near infra-red range gets you as close as possible to night vision in a dash cam and is also found on the MiVUE840 DC.

 

When an accident happens, people are often in a panic and forget to ask the right questions or get the right information.  It is incredibly useful to be able to back up the footage instantly or even share it to social media pages. With EZYShare Instantly via WIFI you can.  The footage is instantly uploaded to your smartphone app with no need to connect to a computer.  If your phone is not connected at that instant, it will upload the footage next time you are automatically.  Four of the six products in this year’s range have this feature.

 

A rear camera can be an excellent idea for many drivers especially as the most common type of accidents are nose-to-tail.  Three of the Navman MiVUE dash cams in this year’s range come as ‘dual camera’ (DC) recording in full HD front and back, and stand-alone cameras can be added to other products.

 

Prices have come down with the simplest model – for just $159 you can pick up the MiVUE745 which has a 2.7” screen, wide angle glass lens, full HD 1080p recording, speed limit displays and more; the MiVUE750 WIFI at $199 has all of these features plus EZYShare Instantly via WIFI; the MiVUE760 Ultra records in incredible 4K ultra 2160p and also has STARVIS Ultra low light sensor ($269); the MiVUE820DC ($279)  comes with dual cameras, and the MiVUE840DC ($399) has dual cameras plus the EZYShare Instantly via WIFI feature.  Finally for the dad who wants it all, there is the MiVUE860DC TYRE ($599), which not only has two cameras, it also has a tyre pressure monitoring system, perfect for road warriors or those towing boats or caravans.  For a full list of features please visit our website.
