Mio MiVue 798 Pro Dash Cam Review

We review the performance of this high-end dashcam to see if it’s worth the asking price

Mio has been in the dashcam business for a long time and offers a range of in-car recorders to suit most budgets.

A recent update has replaced the popular MiVue 798 with the 798 Pro – a single camera unit with up to quad HD recording and a range of advanced features that sits at the top of the Mio range.

From a design standpoint, it’s not the smallest or sleekest dashcam we’ve tested, but it should still fit behind most rear-view mirrors, and the rotating mount allows for a decent range of adjustments.

Part of the reason for its bulk is that, unlike many newer dashcams, it still has a 2.7-inch screen. That means you can calibrate its position using an image on the screen, adjust settings, and view footage directly on the device instead of using the mobile app. It’s useful if you don’t have a smartphone but otherwise feel unnecessary.

The app is easy to install and connect to your camera, and once it’s up and running, you can manage all settings – from resolution settings to parking mode to formatting the memory card – from your phone. You can also view, lock and delete clips and download footage to your device if you need to share it after an incident.

The video is captured using the commonly used Sony Starvis sensor with a 145 degree angle lens and F1.8 aperture. The 798 Pro can record in up to 1600p QHD resolution at 30fps, or in Full HD at a smoother 60fps. It also has a dedicated night mode for low-light situations and can also be used to capture still images.

At full 1600p resolution, image quality is solid but not spectacular. In normal daylight, the images are sharp and clear and more than good enough, although it’s been tested in very high-contrast situations. Low-light shots aren’t that good. Images are quite grainy and important details like license plates can be difficult to see.

The head unit can be paired with a rear view camera for all-around coverage, and an optional hardwiring kit allows for expanded parking surveillance.

Built-in GPS tracks the vehicle’s position and can be overlaid on Google Maps, as well as automatically logged on footage along with a time stamp.

As with several other MioVue cameras, the 798 Pro comes with a range of driver assistance features, including speed camera alert, collision and lane departure warning.

There are also options for headlight reminders, HUD display and cruising speed reminders, as well as an eco-driving monitor. Some of these require you to be able to see the camera’s screen while driving, so are completely useless. Those who don’t, such as B. the collision and lane departure warnings suffer from the usual lack of accuracy that afflicts all these aftermarket devices.

Ignore the unnecessary extra features and the MioVue 798 Pro is a decent regular dashcam that you can mount and forget. At an RRP of £200 it’s not the cheapest option but you can find it for closer to £150 if you shop around, at this price point it’s a solid if unremarkable option.
