Navman dash-cams: Product Test
Navman dash-cam

Navman, a world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of global positioning system (GPS) products, has unveiled new premium dash-cams with Wi-Fi for instant back-up and sharing footage.

Today’s digital world means we are more connected than ever before and the ability to share information rapidly has become a significant part of our everyday lives. So it makes sense Navman's new MiVue780 and MiVue850 Dual Cam dash-cams allow you to upload precious footage of any incidents you are involved in straight to your phone, thanks to the brand’s latest EZYSHARE feature via Wi-Fi. This means any emergency or event videos will be sent straight to your smartphone via the free MiVue app. From there you can share them to your email or social media sites providing you with even better protection and convenience on the road.

As well as Wi-Fi, these premium devices contain first-class dash-cam features arming you with everything you need to support your side of the story following an accident – so you aren’t stuck paying out hundreds of dollars for insurance excess and you maintain your good driving record. The MiVue850 Dual Cam even has a second camera for the rear of the car to capture any incidents that happen from behind as well as Advanced Driver Systems (ADAS) safety features.

The MiVue850 comes with WQHD 1440P recording through the front camera and the rear camera records at Full HD 1080P. While the MiVue780 records in Full HD 1080P recording.

The two devices additionally feature safety camera alerts, optimised day and night recording for crystal clear footage during the day, night and in bad weather conditions. Like all dash-cams in Navman’s MiVue range these models include a glass lens for sharp recording.

The dash-cams come with a 2.7-inch screen and include other great features such as a generous 140-degrees angle lens, so you capture more detail of what is happening around you. There’s also a headlight alert that notifies you to switch on your headlights in low light conditions, such as carparks or at night and a driver fatigue alert that reminds you to take a break when you have been driving continuously for more than two hours.

The MiVue app is compatible to Android 4.4 above and iOS 9 above and is available for free on Google Play as well as the iTunes store.
