With six MiVue models.
Navman has added to its dash cam line-up with six new MiVue products that can record from 1080p up to 2160p (4K) depending on the model.
Speaking at the Sydney launch, Navman Australia and New Zealand managing director, Wendy Hammond said only 40% of cars sold last year in Australia had built-in navigation, and these systems can be difficult to update and don’t include features like live traffic.
“We do not play in the cheap end of the market. All our dash cam devices have GPS tagged video and are heat tested for the Australian market.” She said one of the main reasons people buy them is for clear evidence in accidents with almost half of insurance claims now submitted with dash cam footage.
“There are regions around the world where insurers are giving big discounts for people who have a dash cam installed in their car. People need clear vision and information on where, when and how the accident happened and in order to do this the device needs to carry a host of features.”
The new MiVue760 Ultra records in 4K and comes with the Sony Starvis CMOS low light sensor to enhance number plates, street signs and other vehicles at night or in dark situations. This near infra-red range recording feature is also available on the MiVue840 DC.
The top of the line model, the MiVue860 features a rear camera with two channel dual recording, tyre pressure monitoring and an advanced driver alert systems (ADAS) that detect lane departure, front collision or front departure warning.
All models feature a wide angle glass lens, automatic event recording with 3-Axis G-Sensor for specific crash details, fatigue and headlight warnings and a speed limit display, while four models carry EzyShare Instantly via Wi-Fi for backing up or sharing footage. All models can take up to 128GB capacity cards for capturing hours of footage.
During the launch period, Navman will be active on social media across Facebook and YouTube, supported by radio advertising, retailer campaigns and in-store activity.
RRPs start at $159 for the MiVue745 and through to $599 for the MiVue860.
