New Navman MiVUEs offer drivers more crash protection

New Navman MiVUEs offer drivers more crash protection

MiVUE 680, 690 SAFE and 698 DUAL CAM up the dashcam stakes with more safety features

19 August 2016:  Just when you thought dashcams could not look out for you anymore, Navman’s latest MiVUE range raises the bar with even more features that help protect drivers. The MiVUE 680, MiVUE 690 SAFE and MiVUE 698 DUAL CAM now feature Super 2K Full HD cameras, and the MiVUE 690 SAFE and MiVUE 698 DUAL CAM also come with  Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Alerts

“Life on the road can be unpredictable and at Navman, we believe that being forewarned is to be forearmed. Until now a dashcam’s main purpose was to help protect drivers in the event of fraudulent claims following an accident, but now we have added more safety features like the advanced ADAS Safety Features to our top of the range MiVUE models. These include Lane Departure Alert, and Front Collision Alert warning if you are driving too close to the car in front, while the clever Front Departure Warning warns you if the car in front has moved off without you noticing. The MiVUE’s Safety Camera Alerts visual and audible alerts will warn you of the upcoming cameras based your current driving speed, offering you extra distance and enough time to safely slow down,” said Wendy Hammond, Navman Australia Country Director.

“In addition, we have introduced Super 2K Full HD features on the MiVUE 680, MiVUE 690 SAFE and MiVUE 698 DUAL CAM to better help protect drivers in the event of fraudulent claims following an accident. Super 2K Full HD is a step above 1080p camera quality, with a clearer image especially needed to capture number plates from a long distance or the finer details in the recording. The top of the range MiVUE 698 DUAL CAM has not one but two cameras that allow you to record in front and behind your car at the same time,” she added.

The MiVUE 680 features Super 2K Full HD Recording, delivering clear and vibrant footage to ensure you don’t miss the little details even in poor lighting conditions. The MiVUE 680 has a generous 2.7 inch screen and comes with Safety and Red Light Camera Alerts which prompts drivers with video and audio warnings when approaching a speed camera and Headlight Alert reminds drivers to turn on headlights at night and in low light areas such as a car park. The MiVUE 680 also has Optimised Day/Night Recording and Digital Photo mode.

Along with Super 2K FHD recording and other features found in the MiVUE 680, the MiVUE 690 SAFE has Dual SD card allowing you to save your important footage to a second card on the go. With Safety Camera Alerts it also has the highly advanced ADAS safety features including Lane Departure Alert, and Front Collision Alert warning if you are driving too close to the car in front, while the clever Front Departure Warning will politely alert you if you have stopped and the car in front has moved off without you noticing. 

The exceptional MiVUE 698 Dual Cam is the only MiVUE dashcam with two cameras to capture high quality video footage of what’s in front and behind your car at the same time.  Like the MiVUE 690 SAFE, this device also has Safety Camera Alerts info and the highly advanced ADAS safety features including Lane Departure Alert, Front Collision Alerts.

Other features included in the MiVUE range include built-in 3-Axis G-Shock Sensor that automatically locks the recorded video footage, impact location and when it occurred;  GPS Tracking that records the direction travelling, location and speed information providing an accurate record of events; Optimised Day/Night  Recording which allows for recording in low-light conditions; Photo mode gives the ability to take a photo of both cars, and photos are tagged with geo references, date and time; and Wide Angle Lens capturing every detail ahead including lanes on either side making it perfect for blind spots too.
