Thick storage pouch included. PRESENT !
70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro. A new generation video recorder, in which it is made with an emphasis on increased security and improved image clarity when filming. The device is a logical continuation of the popular 70mai Smart Dash Cam.
The sensitive G-sensor reacts “instantly” to collisions while you are away. If there is a physical impact on your car, video recording is automatically turned on (the device also supports Timelapse mode (accelerated shooting) when connected via a special cable). Parking mode is provided in the recorder without connecting this cable.
It has two settings. one turns it on / off, the second sets the time after which the recorder will turn off itself if there is no movement (according to the shock sensor).
If parking mode is enabled, the recorder will turn on automatically when the shock sensor is triggered and record 1 minute of video (the screen is off). If during the recording there is another triggering of the shock sensor. the recorder will turn on completely (as if a button was pressed) and will record video continuously until the time specified in the settings expires (including when the power is off, and even while in your ).
This functionality significantly increases the security capabilities of the device. With 70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro, your car is “closely watched” 24 hours a day.
- Automatic video recording in case of physical impact on the car. “Protection” 24 hours a day.
- 5 megapixel camera that shoots at a resolution of 2592 x 1944.
- Smart ADAS support.
- Supports WDR (high dynamic range), high quality picture in any light
- DeFog support. image enhancement in difficult weather (fog, snow, rain).
High image quality
Image details are clearly visible
A 5-megapixel camera with a Sony IMX335 sensor, which has an f / 1.8 aperture and shoots at a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels with WDR, is responsible for the high quality of video recording, thanks to which the contrast of the video frame is balanced throughout the entire area. Registrar lens, allows you to fix car numbers and everything that happens on the roadway within 140 °.
On one of the sides of 70 Mai there is a slot for installing a memory card (maximum volume no more than 64 GB) and a USB output, thanks to which both a car cigarette lighter and a Powerbank can act as a power source for the DVR.
The device is equipped with Huawei’s powerful flagship dual-core HiSilicon processor. The Xiaomi 70Mai Smart Dash Cam Pro adopts the new H.265 video encoding technology, which greatly improves the compression efficiency. Video quality is now even clearer.
The DVR is equipped with the DeFog function, an advanced algorithm to improve the quality of images captured in harsh environmental conditions such as fog, haze, snow, directional lighting.
Designed to adjust the lightness of the picture, preserving the original ratio of bright and dark elements, but at the same time equalizing the contrast and excluding too sharp drops in values. In other words, thanks to the WDR function, the 70MAI Smart Dash Cam Pro is able to cope with both the bright sun, which obstructs the view, and the shadow, which hides important elements of the road.
All DVRs of the latest generation are equipped with the possibility of night shooting, and 70MAI Smart Dash Cam Pro is no exception, because the vast majority of accidents occur just at night. The high number of accidents is influenced by many factors: driver fatigue, dim street lighting, bright oncoming light from cars, and so on. The lens of the Xiaomi recorder is made of 6G display glass, is equipped with an f / 1.8 aperture and has a modern light-sensitive matrix 3.0×3.0, which allows for the highest quality shooting at night.
The gadget is equipped with a 2.4G wireless module, so you can watch video from the car recorder online, as well as change device settings, using a special application. Going on a long trip, do not forget to take the Xiaomi 70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro with you and safely cover even the longest distances. The APP can be downloaded for free from Google Play or APP Store.
Video recorder 70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro with a menu in Russian records in a circular-circular mode, which involves overlaying new files over old content. This feature allows you to save space on the media. To protect information from being overwritten, the DVR is equipped with an acceleration sensor that protects the data from damage at moments of sudden overload. During emergency braking or collision, the auxiliary recording mode starts. The created content is saved without the possibility of deletion. The process of overlaying new files on it is also not available.
The sensitivity of the acceleration sensor is adjustable, which is important when driving on off-road and highways with low-quality road surfaces.
The small dimensions of the 70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro with a menu in Russian allow you to mount it behind the rear-view mirror without restricting the driver’s visibility. Ease of installation is ensured by an electrostatic adhesive. Dismantling the DVR is also easy, leaving no dirt. 70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro is immune to extreme temperatures. And the use of a suction plaster will prevent it from falling off during long-term exposure to sunlight. And the most important. It must be remembered that the DVR is an absolutely honest and impartial eyewitness to any accident on the road. He will serve as source of evidence in any controversial situation. Video recorder 70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro has the ability to adjust the lens vertically. Lens travel 40 degrees.
The recorder is made in the form of a beveled trapezoid with a protruding round lens. The gadget is equipped with a 2-inch LCD display with a resolution of 320×240, navigation through which is carried out by the buttons located under it.
Expansion of the basic version
70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro is equipped with an additional slot into which one of the special modules is installed, which are purchased separately from the DVR:
- Optional GPS module. adds speed display both on the screen and on the video itself. And also with this module, the device receives the Advanced driver-assistance systems.
- GPSGPRS. In addition to the full functionality of the first module, the user gets the opportunity to remotely control the DVR when the car is in a parking lot or parking lot.
Tight case will prevent scratches and abrasions on the device while you are not using it.

The recorder is controlled by five mechanical buttons. The main one. the widest one, located at the bottom. is responsible for the forced switching on and off of the recorder. During the operation of the recorder, the same button turns on and off the display. The other four buttons, lined up in a row, turn off and turn on the sound recording from the microphone, set the flag of an important video, go to the file browser and to the service menu.
The DVR settings menu consists of several sections, navigation through the menu is performed using the same buttons.
The second control method is voice. The recorder understands four commands: Take picture, Record video, Turn on screen and Turn off screen. Yes, that’s right, in English. The recognition accuracy is quite high, the recorder listens to commands pronounced loudly, quietly, against the background of noise and music, in a man’s voice, a woman’s or a child’s. Even the pronunciation of a person who does not know English at all did not prevent recognition. He studied German. At school. 60 years ago.
The third management method is related to mobile devices. The proprietary 70mai application is responsible for this. Before using the application, you need to register with the 70mai service (by the way, why?). The registration process consists in receiving a secret code to the specified e-mail and entering it into the form.
Establishing a connection between the registrar and a smartphone is not difficult, since it is standard: the Wi-Fi point is activated in the recorder menu (it is a pity that there is no separate button for this, as in action cameras), then this point is selected in the smartphone, a standard password is entered (12345678). and the devices are ready to communicate.
The interface of the mobile application is neatly translated into Russian. The functions of the application are standard and will be understandable to anyone.
Shock sensor sensitivity setting
What is the advantage of wireless connection to car dashboards? Undoubtedly, in the ability to quickly view and copy recorded videos. No need to remove the memory card from the recorder, no need for a computer with a card reader. Well, watching videos on a large display of a smartphone or tablet is incomparably more convenient than on a miniature recorder screen.
The disadvantage of a bundle of a mobile application is that the program, for some reason, does not remember the device once connected. And the connection process, which consists of choosing a device, must be repeated each time.
This is how, almost positively, the chapter on settings and software could end. But these were seeds in comparison with what was ahead of us. It’s about the same GPS / Glonass site.
It turned out that it was not enough to connect two devices, the site and the recorder. The resulting symbiosis of gadgets also needs to be calibrated. And this is not easy. Not only because the user manual, as well as other possible sources, completely lacks any information on this topic.
In recent years, equipment manufacturers have en masse refuse to provide their products with intelligible documentation. What is now attached to small household appliances cannot be called instructions, much less manuals (1. Take the device out of the package. 2. Turn on the device. 3. Follow the instructions). In other words: Have you bought a gadget? Sort it out as you want. Search the forums, collect rumors, go with your own mind. Oh yes. You can also search for information on YouTube.
Our case repeats this offensive trend. All the necessary information is “protected” in the recorder, but you can find out about their existence only by turning on the ADAS function (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) in the settings. But here’s the catch: the information is presented on the display of the recorder in the smallest text in English. These white letters are displayed at the top of the display, they cannot be seen if there is a light sky in the frame (it, suddenly, is also on top).
The calibration process is performed in the form of a step-by-step wizard, at each stage the recorder issues a portion of the text:
Move the dash cam to align car head with the highlighted area. This means that you will have to tear off the recorder, which was glued to the edge of the windshield, and re-glue it as close to the center as possible so that the camera looks straight ahead and not to the side).
2. Turn the lens to ensure the distant horizon within the highlighted area. That is, you just need to turn the camera unit down or up so that the horizon line coincides with the highlighted area of the screen.
After these conditions are met, the calibration will begin, which is accompanied by a horizontal line moving across the screen, resembling a scanner beam.
In this case, a woman’s voice gives the driver a command in English: Calibration has begun. Please keep your speed at 20 kilometers per hour or higher. Excuse me, we’re in the parking lot. What to do, we will cancel the calibration operation and repeat it somewhere on the most unoccupied track (it is strictly forbidden to be distracted from the road by operations with the recorder).
[some time later] No, it doesn’t work. Calibration starts, but does not end, the line continues to scan something. And after 8 minutes, the recorder in a woman’s voice says a sad “Calibration failed”.
What’s the matter? We’ll have to figure it out (oh, how clear instructions are lacking!). What does the recorder do during the so-called calibration? After all, he does not compare the readings of the GPS receiver with the current speed, no GPS device needs such a calibration. No, there is something else related to optical image recognition. it’s not in vain that the scanner strip walks across the screen. And this other is probably somewhere in the ADAS settings.
- Car ahead move, the beginning of the movement of the vehicle in front (FVSA)
- Lane deviation (80 km / h), crossing the lane mark while driving at a speed of more than 80 km / h (LDWS)
- Hit car ahead alert (FCWS)
It is now clear what calibration gives. She trains the recorder, letting him “understand” where the horizon and the edges of the strip are in the frame. With the help of this knowledge and the GPS-platform, the device will warn the driver about an obstacle ahead of the course and about the danger of leaving the lane at a speed above 80 km / h. After plunging into the advanced ADAS settings, we discovered another recorder ability. a kind of “scene marking”. It is claimed that after turning it on, the recorder “will mark vehicles and lines within the recognition range.” Sounds incomprehensible, but tempting.
The difficulty is that the calibration process, as indicated in the ADAS setup help section, can take 5-8 minutes. All this time, the driver must drive the car at a speed of at least 20 km / h. This means that in a city with its traffic jams and traffic lights, this is not feasible. over. After examining the points that describe the probable reasons for unsuccessful calibration (especially the 4th point, Lane markings are fuzzy and cannot be recognized), it became clear that not only the city, but most of the roads are missing. Although they are freshly repaired in some places (asphalt is usually laid in the rainy season, before winter), there are no markings on them. Choosing a fine day and driving along the surrounding roads, we nevertheless found an asphalt area suitable for calibrating the recorder. Along the way, we found out the following.
Two conditions are required for a successful calibration. First: a few minutes of driving along the road at a speed of at least 20 km / h, rare stops are allowed. The second condition, the most important, is that there must be clearly distinguishable road markings on the left and right. It doesn’t matter if they are broken lines or solid ones. The main requirement is their distinguishability and presence on both sides of the strip. In our area, the marking on the left (central) is available almost everywhere, even if not in a new state. But the markings on the right could only be found on a relatively new section of the road, the sides of which had not yet had time to be covered with a cultural layer of dust and dirt.
Literally in a minute of driving along such a lane, the registrar in a woman’s voice announced the cherished Calibration sucCeeded.
Let’s rejoice? This is not the time. The ADAS help section contains a little more: after a successful calibration, you need to re-calibrate.
I really want to ask the developers of the registrar and GPS site: why? Why do you need this exciting quest? Why other car recorders, taken “out of the box”, without any calibration, quite successfully cope with these trivial standard functions, warning of a possible departure from the lane or approaching an obstacle?
That was good news (no). Now the news is bad (yeah) The module, which took a lot of time and gasoline to calibrate, turned out to be unnecessary. It does almost nothing. GPS tags, speed and acceleration are not shown on the display or in the video. There is simply no data in the video files that could be extracted by third-party programs. The registrar does not warn about leaving the lane (although this is not surprising with our “lanes”). The recorder also does not signal a possible collision. The operation of the module can sometimes be detected only when in a traffic jam: an English-speaking woman, hidden in the recorder, issues a warning that the car in front has started to move. Well, at least thanks for that, now you can read a book in a traffic jam, and not look into someone’s stern. True, this function does not always work. it requires daylight hours, good visibility and the absence of backlight (the sun should not shine into the lens).
The recorder saves video files to a standard MP4 container during recording. The number of frame size options depends on the selected codec.
In addition to this main video recorder, the recorder simultaneously saves the same clips, but with a smaller frame size, 640 × 360. At the same time, the frequency remains the same as in full-size video, 30 frames per second, and the bit rate reaches 2 Mbps. These files are used for playback on a smartphone when viewed in direct mode.
As you can see, the frame rate in all modes is exactly the same, 30 frames per second. There is no frame rate selection item in the recorder settings. There is only a point where the frequency of the region’s power supply is set (50 or 60 Hz).
The resolution of the video created by the recorder camera reaches 1600-1700 TV lines on the horizontal side of the frame in the older shooting mode (2592 × 1944). A more precise definition of the resolution is hindered by pronounced aliasing (stepped contrast boundaries). Along with a decrease in the size of the frame, the resolution also decreases, but it falls unevenly, but in a sinusoidal manner. So, in Full HD mode, the resolution is already 900-1000 TV lines.
Proceeding even from this synthetic testing, we can draw the following conclusion: for the permanent operation of the recorder, it makes sense to use the largest frame size. Only it provides details comparable to full-fledged camcorders and cameras that shoot in 4K. Yes, this mode requires more space on the memory card, but you hardly need to worry about saving. Unlike stationary video surveillance, mobile does not need to store records for weeks or months. As a rule, an important video fact is captured just now, this very minute (an accident or other event). If you do not waste time, you can copy the required incident record without fear that this video will be overwritten by new records.
True, this maximum frame size (2592 × 1944) gives a non-standard aspect ratio, 4: 3. Due to the large viewing angle (140 ° diagonal) with such recording, the camera almost completely captures the dashboard, which is completely unnecessary in the recording.
The registrar imprints the 70mai logo in the video frame, as well as the current date and time. These values must be set manually in the device settings, remembering to keep track of their relevance (any quartz watch is always a little behind or in a hurry).
Thanks to the high resolution of the DVR camera, every little detail can be discerned in the video under good illumination. License plates become distinguishable at a great distance, and the direction of movement of the observed car is unimportant: due to the good sensitivity of the sensor, the camera sets a short shutter speed. And as you know, the shorter the shutter speed, the clearer the frame.
Automation controls the exposure of the frame well. So, even with oncoming bright light (headlights, sun), contrasting details along the course of movement remain intact, do not light up.
The original video of this ride against the sun can be downloaded from this link (163 MB).
But, we repeat, this quality is possible only with a sufficient level of illumination and low speeds.
Exactly the same will happen at dusk, and even more so at night. In such conditions, do not even dream of getting any discernible contours of fast-moving objects.
Talking about the quality of shooting, we will give our traditional freeze frames taken from day and night shooting from one angle in motion. With their help, it is easy to understand what is the difference between day and night shooting.
We must admit: in comparison with most of the inexpensive car recorders available in our market, the device in question records exceptionally well. Such a high quality of shooting is present, perhaps, only in top branded devices and in no less branded action cameras.
An important addition: during the recording, the recorder divides the material into segments of one minute, as all recorders do with the “circular” recording mode. It is noteworthy that at the junction of two video files, which are formed by our recorder, there are absolutely no gaps. The owner does not have to worry that some kind of incident will happen at the moment of the junction of two files: the recorder records everything that he sees.
Fastening and connection
To glue the recorder to the windshield anyhow and wherever it is risky business. But you will understand this much later, when you try to set up a joint operation of the recorder with a GPS site. In any case, it should be glued as high as possible and as close to the center of the windshield as possible. Unfortunately, the honorable central place under the mirror has long been occupied by a “regular” registrar, which was installed back in a car service. I had to move the review hero a little to the left. Well, above, of course. Here’s what we got.
It looks like the windshield of our car has too much tilt for this recorder: the display of the device “looks” down, instead of being directed at the driver’s face. Either the design of the recorder was tested on off-road vehicles with a small slope of glass, or it was calculated on a driver of small stature. Anyway, all the same, this display is too miniature to be distracted by it.
To notice the presence of the recorder in the car from the outside, you need to take a good look. In the photo, it is easy to assess the possibility of its detection in comparison with the “standard” recorder, which proudly bulges out with its lens and dimensions. If this degree of secrecy does not suit the owner, the registrar can be easily removed from the site and put into his .
But here a serious design flaw should be noted. In theory (this is really a good idea), the plate glued to the glass, on which the recorder is put on, should have a power input. Isn’t it logical? What else are contacts in the site for, if not for transferring to the power recorder? In our case, it turns out that although the mount is quick-release, the removal process itself must be accompanied by pulling out the USB cable from the side connector of the recorder. What will be left of the connector and its contacts after a hundred or two of such disconnections and connections, made, as a rule, in a hurry and often in the dark? That’s right, the USB port will fall apart, the contacts will be worn out. And from an aesthetic point of view, such a solution does not look very good. The area on the glass, left without a recorder, is nothing. But the cable with the connector sticking out from the ceiling looks sloppy.
Review of 70mai Smart Dash Cam Pro car DVR with display and camera rotary unit
When power is applied, the recorder turns on automatically, video recording starts two seconds after the recorder is turned on. When the power is turned off, the DVR will finalize the current video file and turn off. The recorder can be turned on forcibly even when the power is off, in which case it will continue recording until the energy reserve in the built-in battery runs out. This reserve is enough for 55 minutes of autonomous recording in H.265 Full HD mode. In the parking mode with the motion detector turned on, the recorder could last much longer on the battery. However, the battery life in the parking monitoring mode is for some reason limited by software. The available maximum is 50 minutes, after which the recorder will turn off.
During a long video recording, the body of the device heats up slightly. Below are thermal images of the device taken after several hours of continuous video recording with the display on. Testing conducted in room conditions with an ambient temperature of approximately 24 ° C.
It can be seen that the case heats up the most in the area of metal contacts for communication with the GPS pad, here the temperature reached 45 ° C. This temperature poses no danger to the electronics. True, there is a risk of additional heating of the case by the sun’s rays in the summer. But cooling will help here, because on hot days the driver probably turns on the air conditioner, blowing cold air onto the windshield.
The recorder as a separate independent gadget is just a camera that can imprint the current date and time into the frame. The registrar does not have any other functions, except for the possibility of connecting with a smartphone. And it could have the ability to warn about leaving the lane, or to imprint coordinates, speed and other data into the frame. Could. If the developer had brought to mind this described GPS-site, with whose calibration we pretty much suffered. precisely, the connection of the site with the registrar.
Perhaps the additional functions that work smoothly include the built-in G-sensor with a three-stage sensitivity setting, as well as a parking recording mode with a motion sensor. By the way, we immediately switched the G-sensor to low sensitivity mode, because at the middle level, emergency recording is activated on every bump.
The sound in the video recording of the DVR is recorded in AAC with a bit rate of 128 Kbps. The built-in microphone does not “mumble” or “hiss”. Every sound in the car, including the soft speech of the driver and passengers, is clearly recorded and clearly distinguishable in the recording. There is no booming or cutoff characteristic of cheap microphones.
A similar design and, in general, the concept is not difficult to find among the registrars of other manufacturers. An irregularly shaped body with a protruding rotating camera block is one of the optimal solutions for placement on the windshield.
In the photo, you can see five contacts in the attachment area. Yes, they are designed specifically to work together with a GPS gadget, which also acts as a mounting pad. There are exactly five receiving contacts in its center. Apparently, two contacts provide power to the GPS and Glonass sensors, and the other three transmit information from them to the recorder.
Due to the absence of additional fasteners with a long arm, the recorder is glued very close to the glass. This eliminates vibration and therefore jitter in video recording.
If, due to the inclination of the windshield, the recorder camera lifts up or down, taking pictures of the sky or the dashboard, it’s not scary: a remote camera unit, a gray cylinder with an LED strip, can rotate 90 °.
The front panel of the instrument contains an LCD display and a row of four buttons for frequently used operations. Below is another button, the main.
On the right side of the case there is a Micro-USB port for power supply, and just below. a slot for a microSD / SDHC memory card.
On the left side you can see the microphone hole and the external rotary camera block.
The branded cigarette lighter adapter works from 12- and 24-volt on-board systems and is equipped with two USB ports of different capacities. The recorder can be connected to any of them, and the second free port is useful for powering other equipment.
The length of the cable attached to the recorder is 3.5 meters, which is more than enough to lay the wire according to the “invisible” scheme in any car.

FAQ. How to flash 70 mai video recorder. Firmware instructions
Before updating the 70mai recorder, or as many say “firmware for the 70mai video recorder” from Xiaomi, we recommend that you read all the information presented below in this thread in full. The most crucial moment, first, let’s figure out which revision (version you have a 70mai DVR). You can distinguish it visually by looking at your device and comparing it with photographs.
Only after that you download the required file. “70mai firmware” based on the received data about the version of your recorder from the unfolding “spoilers”. And only then start flashing the device. I draw your attention to the fact that even if the 70mai registrar from Xiaomi is constantly connected to the power supply from the USB cable, it still needs to be charged at least up to 60% before starting the firmware, in order to avoid problems !
Where can I download the firmware? Anywhere, the main thing is that you subconsciously trust the source. The official source, let’s say the original source of the files, is the Chinese XDA forum (copies of them also apply to w3bsit3-dns.com). You can easily find them through the XDA-DEVELOPER search engines. The links on my website lead to the cloud, where I placed copies of these files. I do not distribute the file, but I post it for myself, since I very often flash the device of this model (to friends / colleagues), and carrying flash drives with me is not comme il faut. it’s easier to swing from the cloud. Before you start updating your video recorder on May 70, read the instructions above. Download the firmware file you need for 70mai in Russian with voice control. Be sure to download the correct file below and slowly start updating the firmware. the process of which is described below. If you have any questions (there is no access to the 70 mai firmware file via the link to the cloud), or if you run into something along the update path. write in a personal, I will tell you what the plug is. Firmware for the Chinese version If you have a 70mai DVR arrived (you bought it), it speaks an incomprehensible language and looks more like a meow of cats))) yes yes. This is Chinese, it also happens. inside all the menus are in “Chinese”, but in the latest firmware from the market this is often fixed. In any case, if she meows in Chinese, this is the file you need. Download it. as it is different for English-speaking “global” registrars. Study your DVR carefully before proceeding with the firmware update, find the visual difference on the sticker on the case!
Firmware for the English version If you have a 70mai video recorder arrived (you bought it), and inside all the menus are in “English”. you are obviously much more fortunate than the owners of its Chinese version. because here it is at least a little clear which of the settings. To update the firmware, you need this file. Download it, but by no means confuse it with the file above, as it is different for 70mai Chinese-speaking registrars. and if you mix it up, your registrar will become a useless brick. Study your 70mai dashcam carefully before proceeding with the firmware update following the instructions above.!
The firmware process is as follows:
0. Insert SD card into 70mai video recorder. To format the SD card, press the round button quickly 3 times. Or format the memory card in PC, in FAT32 format
Unpack the firmware 70mai archive. follow the link above in the drop-down rolls. There will be a file in it and its name will be SD_CarDV.bin. Burn it to a blank, freshly formatted microSD card. I used 4 Gb, that’s enough.
Insert the microSD card into the Xiaomi 70 mai camera; As soon as you connect the charging wire to the 70mai DVR, the firmware will literally start immediately. Therefore, make sure that you have written a really correct firmware file to the card.!
Connect the 70 mai recorder to an external power supply; Powerbank can be used. I plugged it directly into the wall outlet to a regular charger. from which I usually charge all my smartphones / phones and gadgets.
The 70 mai will start flashing blue. The 70 mai video recorder chirps something in Chinese a few phrases and. the firmware process started;
It will last no more than three minutes, and will depend on the speed of your SD memory card. After a successful update of the 70mai firmware, the device will say something in Chinese (Probably, it may not say. and they say this is normal, but they told me. Then 70 mai will turn itself off (the blue LED will turn off);
Switch on the 70 mai. device by pressing 1 time. And you will hear the native Russian language. The memory card is cleared after the firmware, and it will not have the file that you copied there. The device will create new empty folders.
Perhaps the flash drive is even formatted, but I don’t know that and it’s better to ask our Chinese friends about it. Well, that’s all. My congratulations. you have successfully flashed your Chinese 70 mai video recorder into Russian. You can now enjoy Russian voice acting (and for some models, Russian voice control).

Installation of the rear video recorder Xiaomi 70Mai, on the example of LADA Vesta SV Cross
Hello friends! Today I will show you how I installed and connected the rear DVR to my LADA Vesta SV Cross.
For those who like to watch videos, there is a video review on YouTube:
As a rear DVR, it was decided to use a compact DVR from Xiaomi, namely the Xiaomi 70Mai. It is small, without a screen, and when unpacking it, I said that it should not be in the front, but just behind. Well, my hands got around and did it. I bought it HERE all offers HERE
Since on station wagons and hatchbacks, the rear window gets dirty quickly, then you need to put it in the area of \ u200b \ u200bthe rear wiper.
Well, now the actual installation. Remove the driver’s door seal.
This is in order to run the power cable under the headliner without removing it.
Next, we remove the end caps of the panel, under which I brought out the power cable for the recorder from the alarm with two USB ports. This is where you need to stretch the cable from the rear recorder.
I have a video about the installation of this block on my channel:
Well, then we stock up on patience and start twisting. The process, of course, is not the most fun, but it did it once and the head does not hurt. The cable will not rattle, fray and, accordingly, over time, a shorty will not appear or just a break. So do not skimp and twist.
10 minutes and the cable is ready. You can start editing.
We start with the front pillar. It can be removed, but it was decided to disassemble the interior to a minimum. The cable was simply tucked neatly under the rack without dismantling it.
In order to stretch the cable from the front to the rear door under the ceiling without dismantling it, you will need a piece of wire.
Then we tie a cable to it and just stretch it.
That’s all, the cable went through and the ceiling was not touched.
Next, the cable must be pulled to the fifth door under the ceiling, preferably again without dismantling it and bring it out through the corrugation under the door trim and to the installation site of the recorder.
To do this, you will have to pull off just a couple of clips from the ceiling, you may not need to remove them, but then it will be very difficult. We slightly bend the ceiling and stretch the wire from the fifth door to the rear passenger.
We tie the cable to the wire and pull it to the fifth door.
Well, here’s the cable and stretch back almost indiscriminately.
The cable lies on a soft ceiling, and is also wrapped with electrical tape, its additional fixation is not required.
The work on the salon has been completed. Fast, dust and noise free. For everything about everything for 10 minutes.
Now it is necessary to remove the central part of the fifth door trim, without dismantling the cable under it cannot be pulled.
Next, you need to pull the cable through the corrugation and bring it out under the removed casing. For pulling, you also need a wire, and for convenience it is necessary to pull off the corrugation O-rings from their regular places, otherwise the wire, and even more so the cable, does not want to pass.
Well, actually we stretch and stretch the cable.
That’s all, we put the ceiling clips and we will not disturb the ceiling itself anymore.
Also, you can already put in place all previously removed seals.
It is better to fix the excess of the stretched cable with ties, for example, to other wires, so that it does not dangle there much.
The excess cable turned out to be not large, I did not cut it, the extra piece on the screeds will safely hide under the plastic sheathing. In my opinion it turned out quite well.
Well, actually the installation of the cladding itself.
As you may have noticed, I did not wind the electrical tape to the end, but only with a small protrusion from under the plastic, so that it does not rub the cable with its end, and so that the visible part of the cable is more neat.
The recorder was specially hung low, in the wiper’s area, otherwise in spring and autumn it will only remove dirt on the glass.
On the tinted glass you can’t even see it from the outside, that’s good.
The only thing left to do is to connect the cable to the previously prepared USB port. I put the unit here for two ports, watch the video about its installation, if interested.
The cable is connected, we hide the excess and you can close the end cover.
Well, that’s all set. The recorder is installed, connected and paired with the front one. They are launched from me through the alarm. They also both turn on for five minutes when an alarm is triggered or when a warning signal from a light hit to the body. If someone hooks on in the parking lot, they will not go unnoticed. A convenient and useful thing. I talked about this in more detail in the video about installing the front DVR. The fact that the recorder does not have a screen is a big plus, at night nothing shines in the mirror and does not interfere. All control takes place from a smartphone via WI-FI.
That’s how in half an hour with smoke breaks and minimal analysis of the cabin, you can install a rear recorder. As you can see, there are no extra wires on the surface, everything is laid in a corrugation, respectively, the cable is not threatened with chafing, bending and breakage, one might say factory assembly. I am very pleased with the result.
As for the presence of tinting on the glass, then of course it affects the result, in the daytime it is almost imperceptible, not critical, the picture is quite readable, the numbers are visible, and in general it is worthy. For a general understanding of the traffic situation, more than enough.
But with the arrival of night, the picture deteriorates. You can’t see a damn thing through the toner. Only bright lights and nothing else. The license plates can only be seen at a distance of no more than two or three meters. In general, for the night, the option with toning is certainly not suitable. But because of this, I am not going to take off the tinting, and even more so to cut out a piece of tinting for the recorder, I can’t get it. So if you do not have tinting and are not going to glue, then you are more fortunate than me.
Is it rational or not, the installation of the recorder on the back, I will not argue, firstly, I had this recorder idle and it was a sin not to use it. Yes, toning completely kills night photography, but at least during the day everything is fine, it’s also better than nothing. And the installation, you saw it yourself, couldn’t be easier. In general, I have been skating with him for about a month and I can say that I have never regretted installing it. Does not interfere, does not ask for food, but the record is.
And by the way, no matter how dark toning is, it is basically noticeable to the drivers driving behind, and believe me, this is a very deterrent factor for those who want to sit on their tail, blink, play and cuddle at traffic lights and rises. I think it’s unpleasant to sit behind the wheel and understand that you are being filmed right in the forehead. Behavior behind driving cars noticeably changes from aggressive to calm immediately after changing lanes behind me in my lane. So in any case, the recorder in the back is, as for me, always good in every sense. I have set, I am satisfied.
Be careful friends on the road, be mutually polite, and remember, they are waiting for us at home! And when the roads become calmer, perhaps we will no longer need these recorders.!
