I don't know how most of you use YouTube but aside watching some of my favorite music clips from the 80's and 90's (which i obviously can't find anywhere else) i also enjoy watching high speed chases and car accidents through dashboard cameras since because of their POV and detail it's almost like i was there myself. This however is the last reason of having a good dashboard camera since many people use them not only to get the discounts offered by some insurance companies but also to have solid evidence in case of accidents and/or malicious acts towards their vehicles. Mio is a name that most people recognize because of their many years in GPS navigation (more like a pioneer in this field) but what many people don't know is that they've been manufacturing car dash cameras for quite a while now and today with us we have their latest model to hit the EU market, the MiVue 568 Touch.
Mio develops and markets products that enable users to take advantage of the latest developments in mobile services. The brand was established in May 2002 and today has operations in Taiwan, mainland China, Europe, North America, Australia, Japan and South Korea. Mio currently employs more than 900 individuals worldwide, and sells and markets its products in over 38 countries and territories. It is Mio’s belief that mobile life and mobile business will remain an integral part of life into our future. Mio’s brand tagline, “Explore More,” focuses on changing the way people experience the world while letting users know that they can explore the world easily and freely with Mio products.
As far as specifications go Mio has done a very good job with the MiVue 568 Touch since aside the very useful 2.5 inch touch screen at the rear (clearly revealed by the name of the product) it also features Full HD 1080p recording with an angle of 130 degrees, F1.8 lens (should help in low light conditions), integrated GPS receiver, lifetime safety camera updates (a very convenient feature i must add), G-sensor (3-axis), HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode, parking mode (motion detection recording for when the car is parked), HDMI output and two different power modes (auto on and continuous). Now although it's nice knowing that a company has given many useful features to a product we can only be certain about its performance after we've used it so let's see how our first encounter with a car dashboard camera by Mio went after almost 1 full month of testing.
