Navman’s new MiVue730 dash cam and MiVue800 dual cam sys­tem both fea­ture built-in GPS track­ing — so they’re able to pro­vide you with spe­cific de­tails in the un­for­tu­nate event of an ac­ci­dent, in­clud­ing the lo­ca­tion and di­rec­tion in which the crash oc­curred, as well as the speed you were trav­el­ling at the time. This can be viewed on your com­puter via the MiVue Man­ager – Navman’s desk­top soft­ware. Op­ti­mised day and night record­ing also means that the footage should re­main bright and clear even when driv­ing at night or in bad weather con­di­tions.

The MiVue800 Dual Cam sys­tem in­cludes a sec­ond HD camera for the rear of your car to cap­ture any in­ci­dents or crashes that hap­pen from be­hind. Both the cam­eras record in 1080p video via all-glass lenses to pro­vide bet­ter qual­ity footage in all light­ing con­di­tions, in­clud­ing at night. A wide 130-de­gree an­gle-ofview takes in sur­round­ings in­clud­ing the lanes on ei­ther side of the car. A 3-axis G sen­sor in­di­cates which di­rec­tion the im­pact came from, again via the MiVue Man­ager soft­ware.

There are use­ful ad­di­tional safety fea­tures on both mod­els, such as a head­light re­minder which prompts you to turn on your lights when the sur­round­ings start to be­come darker, and a driver fa­tigue alert which warns when you have been driv­ing for over two hours. Fur­ther­more, a Park­ing Mode is avail­able in con­junc­tion with the MiVue Smart­box (which is an ad­di­tional pur­chase), en­abling the record­ing of what’s go­ing on around the car to con­tinue when it is left unat­tended.

“As dash cams in­crease in pop­u­lar­ity, it’s more im­por­tant than ever to own one, be­cause if an in­ci­dent oc­curs, and you don’t have one, an­other party may be able to present stronger ev­i­dence about the event com­pared to you,” com­ments Wendy Ham­mond, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Navman Aus­tralia. “It’s also vi­tal to pur­chase a de­vice that does more than just record. Even though we don’t like to think about be­ing in­volved in an ac­ci­dent, if one does oc­cur there is no point hav­ing a dash cam if it doesn’t pro­vide as much qual­ity footage as pos­si­ble to help you build a strong case for the po­lice and in­sur­ance com­pa­nies.”

The Navman MiVue730 has a 2.0-inch (5.1 cm) screen while the MiVue800 Dual Cam is supplied with a 2.7-inch (6.8 cm) screen. Other key fea­tures found on both de­vices in­clude

The MiVue730 and MiVue 800 Dual Cam are com­pat­i­ble with mi­croSD cards up to 128 GB in stor­age ca­pac­ity and both de­vices are backed by a one year war­ranty.
