Mio MiVue 766 WIFI dash cam
The MiVue 766 WIFI dash cam is built around two key components. The first is the Sony IMX323 (Exmor) 2-megapixel sensor that is capable of full HD 1920 x 1080p recording at 30fps, and featuring an f1.8 aperture, which gives it good low-light capability. This is paired with a 140◦ wide-angle lens, giving the dash cam an outstanding field of view.
The other component is the 2.7-inch touchscreen display that's used for both setup and for user feedback when the dash cam is in use.
