DVR or pager? Test Mio MiVue 788

Today, for any reason, create chat rooms to discuss something. The flow of information is so powerful and at the same time in such a state that once again did not want to go into a pocket for phone to read new messages. What if they will be broadcast on the DVR?

Modern DVRs recently acquired many unusual features. Some of them really make life easier for the driver. Take, for example, a stationary base complexes photo and video fixation, which is saved in the memory of some devices. A DVR will warn you of approaching fixed camera or radar. So, the driver will be careful on the dangerous stretch of road. Because there, according to the official version, installs such systems. However, there are controversial options, which is not so much the driver how many marketers enticing buyers DVRs new chips. For example, the proximity warning or on exit from the occupied strip. Often, these functions are more distracting from the road than to increase driving safety. However, this is not about that.

The messages of all messengers (except, perhaps, popular Viber) broadcast on the screen of the DVR.The messages of all messengers (except, perhaps, popular Viber) broadcast on the screen of the DVR.

Contact

One of these options is the ability to display the DVR of text messages from different instant messengers installed on your smartphone. Like we’ve never met, so I took to test the DVR Mio MiVue 788 with such a function.

So, we have gadget of the top line of the company, with good optics, good technical characteristics (video resolution 1920×1080), with a GPS module and map of deployment of stationary cameras of the traffic police. Display touch and large enough to see on it, if necessary small parts. It is oriented horizontally. On the casing there are: power button, a slot for MicroSD memory card, mini-USB connector and connector for audiovideofoto. The possibility to connect a second camera. The device is attached to one suction Cup with bracket-slider. The latter allows you to quickly with one hand to remove the gadget from the mount to the glass and easy to put it back. The cost of such devices on Yandex.The market starts from 7799 rubles. In short, while all great, but similar functionality can boast of many video recorders of other brands. The fun is in the menu.

Mio MiVue 788 can connect to a smartphone via wi-fi or Bluetooth connection. But before the phone need to install the application MiVue Pro (available in Google Play and Apple App Store). To pair, I chose the following scheme: a smartphone via Bluetooth hooked up to the standard multimediasystem car (now you can in almost any car radio) and placed the smartphone on the front panel with a special holder. Why? More on that later. The DVR is hooked up to a smartphone — you just have to follow the instructions of the same application. The first connection took a couple of minutes. Later, on every re-connection takes less time.

With one touch you can start a direct stream from the DVR straight to Facebook. Bloggers will like it.With one touch you can start a direct stream from the DVR straight to Facebook. Bloggers will like it.

Live

Just click on the button in the app on the smartphone, as the picture from the DVR is streamed to your profile Facebook live. Why? I can only assume that such function is useful avid videoblogger who can keep their stories straight over the steering wheel. They just need to deploy a camera either to comment on what is happening in front of the car.

One, two, and shared…

With one tap you can send to your smartphone the desired movie. Well, from a smartphone, for example, upload it on file sharing and share the link. By the way, that’s what I did with the video of a traffic accident, the witness of which became. Has managed, fortunately, without victims. Suffered only iron. I exchanged contacts with the participants of the accident and continued on his way. And after a couple of minutes, doing the above manipulations, sent a link to a video of one of the victims.

Delivered but not read

But, most importantly, DVR is friends with almost all popular instant messengers: WhatsApp to Facebook. Have capiltal, for example, the phone in his pocket, signaling to the owner that received a new message. Not necessarily distracted from the road: the text will appear on the screen of the DVR. True, not entirely. However, the sender and the first words of the message is usually clear — it’s important the message or not. Personally, I started driving comfortably. Reply with a screen, of course, impossible. After all, safety is paramount. It is a pity that the gadget does not support Viber, too, is a very popular means of communication. But it will come with time — just need to update the firmware. And it can make the user and after buying the devices themselves. The main thing that the developers have paid attention to it and expanded the functionality.

Pairing the device is a smartphone from the same application. Any one of supported instant messengers can be disabled, so that messages from it are not displayed on the display of the data logger.Pairing the device is a smartphone from the same application. Any one of supported instant messengers can be disabled, so that messages from it are not displayed on the display of the data logger.

And in the messengers provided the status of the message: it can be delivered, but not read. Convenient for those who do not wish to respond to his interlocutor, and in a personal meeting with him, genuinely surprised, like, “Oh! I didn’t notice your message”. Now, the messages shown on the display of the video recorder, retain the status of unread. Keep in mind.

***

The main advantage of the tested DVR’s, in my opinion, a convenience copy recorded video clips in memory of the connected smartphone. From the driver requires a minimum of time and action. Many will have to taste and optional support messenger. The owner of a Mio can boast of such a chip on his DVR to passengers. However, other manufacturers of avtogazeta certainly in the near future will complement their products with new models with similar functionality.
