The Magellan MiVue 420 is an easy to use, one channel dash cam that is designed to record everything that is happening in front of your vehicle. The MiVue 420 dashcam records video in crystal clear 1296p Super HD (2304x1296), which is even better than 1080p resolution. The  2.7" hi-definition LCD display makes it easy to play back and watch recorded footage on the unit, and the built-in battery means you can even remove the 420 from the windshield and record videos or pictures outside of the vehicle for up to an hour if necessary (useful for taking still photos of any damage or paperwork after an accident).

The MiVue 420 comes with an intuitive user interface making it simple to access the many possible options should a user wish and, once plugged into your vehicle's power connector, begins recording in a continuous loop.

If you're interested in a front-facing and rear-facing dashcam system, check out the Magellan MiVue 480D, which is essentially the same as the 420, except with the addition of a secondary rear camera for a dual channel set up.

The MiVue 420 attaches to your front windshield with the included suction cup mount. All you need to do is plug the dash cam into the cigarette lighter power outlet, and you're all set! The MiVue 420 will begin recording as soon as you turn on your car. You can also use one of our dash cam installation kits if you'd like to ditch the standard power cord in favor of a more hidden solution that will still power on and off automatically.

The MiVue 420 boasts a high quality F1.8 lens, allowing the MiVue 420 to capture excellent low-light and night time footage as well as clear daytime footage. The MiVue 420 utilizes WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) to account for any lighting condition and still provide excellent quality video recordings at 30 frames per second.

The MiVue 420's G-Sensor continually monitors the vehicle's 3 axis movement. If the vehicle is hit or quickly changes directions, the sensor tells the camera to lock the video from 15 seconds before the incident occurred to 50 seconds after. The Magellan MiVue 420 dashcam also captures and displays the date, time, speed, and GPS coordinates (latitude and longitude) on the saved video.

The MiVue 420 also has a dedicated emergency lock button that allows you to "lock" (or preserve) a particularly important video file that you don't want to be overwritten as the dash cam does normal loop recording. This is useful for saving moments of beautiful scenery, crossing wildlife, outrageous behavior, and other unexpected events you may happen across while driving!

The Magellan MiVue 420 Dash cam also provides a parking mode feature to record incidents while your vehicle is parked. When engaged the front facing camera automatically begins to record if the camera senses any motion or car movement. If your car is equipped with a continuous powered connector the MiVue 420 will record for the entire length of time you are away from the vehicle. If your vehicle does not have a continuously powered connector, Parking Mode will operate for 30 minutes, when the unit is fully charged.

The MiVue 420 comes with a host of features designed to assist drivers while on the road. Magellan’s MiVue 420 DashCam driver assistance features provide added security for you or loved ones no matter the driver's experience, and you can always turn off these features if you so desire.

 

  • Lane Departure and Forward Collision Warnings are accident avoidance features that you can customize to alert you as your vehicle either starts to leave your lane or gets too close to a vehicle in front of you. 
  • Safety Camera Alerts warn you of traffic cameras nearby. Speed Limit and Cruise Speed features help you maintain safe driving speeds. 
  • Driver Fatigue Alert can be customized to various lengths of driving time and warn you when it’s time to take a break.
  • Headlight Reminder monitors the amount of visible light and reminds you to turn on your headlights.

 

Magellan's MiVue 420 comes with powerful software tools, called MiVue Manager, that organizes your videos for quicker browsing, simpler sharing to social media sites like YouTube and Facebook, and overlays your recorded routes in Google maps to see your route synchronized to the video. The MiVue Manager can also take accident footage and synchronize it to show driving directions while displaying the 3-axis G forces encountered during the event.

A Micro SD memory card (8, 16, 32, 64, or 128gb - Class 10 or higher) is required for use with the MiVue 420. An 8gb memory card is included inside the MiVue 420 box, so you can begin using the 420 right away, and upgrade your storage capacity later if you like. The included 8gb memory card holds about an hour and a half of full resolution Super HD footage, whereas a 128gb memory card will hold up to 21 hours of Super HD video.

This item includes FREE ground shipping within the continental United States. International shipping is also available on this item.

With today’s technology, we have the capabilities to take pictures and record videos at our fingertips with our cell phones, allowing us to catch vital moments that were both expected and unexpected. Think about how many times you have heard lately in the news of incidents that were recorded via cell phone by a passerby, allowing for an accurate account of the events that transpired. Luckily, this technology has extended to cars, with the dash camera (also known as dashboard camera, car DVR or car video recorder) increasing in popularity.

A dash cam that is installed on the dashboard or windshield of your car will provide a variety of benefits with one of the principal benefits being safety. A dash camera can be configured to start recording when a car is turned on, or configured to record even when the car is turned off. Because of the versatility of the different recording options dash cams offer, they are capable of recording everything that happens inside and outside of the car at all times.

 

Dash Cams in Accidents

One major way in which this technology has helped drivers is by proving a true account of events when involved in a driving accident. When a driving accident happens, such as a fender bender, rear end, or even a driver running a red light, video footage from a dash cam can be used as evidence to prove which party was really at fault. This footage is crucial to defending innocence and proving liability when it matters the most by giving an accurate depiction of the events. This is extremely important since it is common for one or more involved parties to stretch the truth or lie in order to protect themselves or to commit fraud against the insurance company. Having footage from the dash cam removes the “it’s my word against yours” rhetoric, and puts a stop to any chance of lying from either party. As seen in the videos below, dash cams give a true account of what happened and are invaluable when it comes time to prove liability or innocence. Even if the car accident involves an animal rather than another driver, such as a deer running into the road, having a dash cam recording as proof will help expedite insurance claims, and prevent your insurance premium from rising due to false claims. The small investment needed to purchase an entry level dash cam can prevent huge headaches and save on lawyer fees/insurance claims when an incident actually occurs. One incident alone will pay for the price of the dash cam multiple times.

Dash Cams to Prevent Insurance Fraud

Another common instance where dash cameras can prove to be invaluable is when someone is attempting to carry out an insurance fraud scheme, such as staging or faking an accident to receive bodily injury claims. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), from 2008 to 2011 insurers reported a 102% increase in suspected staged accidents. From 2011 to 2012, it was estimated that suspected causes of auto insurance fraud rose 12.7%. Studies also estimate that almost 25% of bodily injury claims related to auto crashes are fraudulent. The top states for auto insurance fraud were New York, Florida, Massachusetts and California, and in very populated areas such as New York City, law enforcement officials say fraud factors into as many as 1 out of every 3 auto insurance claims. Officials estimate that fake auto claims cost tens of billions of dollars annually across the nation. It is clear in the videos below how a dashcam can be monumental to helping unmask these schemes and prove your innocence.

Dash Cams for Parents of New Drivers

A dash cam is also a savvy investment for parents of new drivers or young drivers. Inexperienced drivers are often easily distracted, compromising their safety and the safety of every occupant in the vehicle. A dash camera capable of recording both the outside and inside of the vehicle can be useful for reviewing the driving habits of the new driver to pin point risky driving behaviors. This footage can provide parents with evidence of unsafe driving habits to allow for more open and constructive discussions about the privileges of driving and the responsibilities of a safe driver. A 2-channel dash cam can also help show what your teen is doing when driving the vehicle – whether they are paying attention to the road, texting, or distracted by passengers. Having this information can help correct risky behavior before it leads to an accident. According to a study done by the American Family Mutual Insurance Company, installing dash cameras in cars of teenage drivers reduced the frequency and severity of risky driving events among these drivers by 70%. Helping your teenage driver improve their driving skills will prevent accidents and tickets, making them safer on the road and keeping their insurance rates as low as possible.

 

Other Benefits of Dash Cams

Other benefits of having a dash camera installed include being able to capture occurrences on the road such as road rage incidents. Having a dash camera may help to deter incidents of this nature, or provide law enforcement with evidence needed to catch a culprit.

Having a dash camera can also help you get out of a ticket that you wrongfully received. For example, if you have been accused of running a stop sign or red light, your footage can help you prove your innocence in such a case. An example of a dash cam helping dispute a wrongful ticket can be read about here 

Dash cams can also help keep an eye on your unattended vehicle since most dash cameras have an option to record even when the vehicle is not turned on. This can help prevent vandalism, or provide you footage of vandalism, theft or hit and run incidents to prove the incident to the insurance company and to help local law enforcement find the culprit.

 

The myriad of reasons of listed above show why a responsible and careful driver or parent of a teenage driver should consider having a dash cam in their vehicles. Dash camera technology is more powerful than ever, and offered in small discrete devices at low costs, meaning that there is almost no reason you shouldn’t be utilizing them to make your time and your children’s time on the road safer. The small investment needed for a dash cam will pay multiples with the time, hassle and headaches it will save if you are ever involved in a driving incident or vandalism, theft or hit and run situation.
