Useful Information

The Mini 0806 is the latest addition to the popular 'Mini' range and builds upon the many strengths of it's predecessors to deliver outstanding performance and video recording. While it retains a similar style to the Mini 0801 and Mini 0805, it has been tweaked to include additional status LEDs, more ventilation for improved cooling and a magnetic attachment for as optional polarizing filter. All of these subtle features have a significant impact on it's usability, reliability and ability to capture excellent video.

Offering a range of recording options, the Mini 0806 can record up to 1296p at 30 frames per second. Possibly more useful is a full HD 1080p option recording at 45 frames a second to deliver smooth and crisp video with additional detail, which could prove invaluable in the case of an incident. Video can be viewed on the camera's 1.5" LCD screen which also makes adjusting menu settings and aligning the camera easy. To aid in alignment even further, the Mini 0806 can be mounted as a left or right-handed camera, giving a greater level of flexibility when installing.

To improve the quality of the video it captures even further, the Mini 0806 uses a high dynamic range (HDR) to improve it's ability to record in low light conditions and also offers the ability to attach a polarizing filter to the lens using a simple magnetic ring. This can help to reduce glare which may otherwise impact video quality.

The optional GPS module enables the Mini 0806 to pinpoint your location and calculate your speed which can offer additional evidence to help your argument in the case of an insurance claim. This information can be viewed via the software provided with the camera.

The bundle includes a 2° and a 4° mounting wedge which can be used to mount the camera at the edges of the windscreen. By using a combination of wedges between the GPS mount and the camera, you can combat the curvature of the screen to keep the camera facing forwards. While we'd always recommend that your dashcam be mounted centrally, this will be a useful feature to many.

Important Note
The Mini 0806 features two memory card slots and was supposed to switch between card slots in order to offer double the amount of storage. Unfortunately, this functionality isn't effective on the latest firmware version and so we don't recommend this camera if this feature is of particular interest to you. We hope that this issue will be fixed with future firmware updates, and we're in discussions with the manufacturer about this, but we can't give any time frames or guarantees as to when a fix will be made available.

Hardwire Kit
The hardwire kit we recommend for the Mini 0806 is the 12V Cigarette Lighter Power Socket Adapter with the Piggyback Fuse Holder. For the Piggyback Fuse Holder you need to choose from a Mini or Standard fuse type. The alternative hardwire kit is NOT compatible with this camera and should NOT be used.

Reviews

Very Impressed
Reviewed by Chris Been living with this camera for about 2 weeks now and it is an amazing piece of kit. Lets go back to the start, ordered the camera was very happy with the fast delivery, the packaging the camera arrived in was great. The quality during both the day and the night is fantastic, If you get the chance to get your hands on one of these then do it you won't be disappointed. In summary great little camera that is well worth the money.
Great Camera

Reviewed by John It has been a pleasure to deal with the staff at the car camera shop. Got it up and running and very pleased with first results. Still learning the best settings.
Great little camera
Reviewed by Graham I have use of 2 cars, and have been using a Mobius from CarCamera Shop in the main one for around 9 months, and it has been really great, and continues to be so. Although moving the Mobius from one car to another is very simple, it does require accessing both vehicles which is a pain first thing in the morning when I am rushing to get to work and suddenly decide to take the other car because of the weather (one is an MX5, so when the sun is out .................!). A second camera had to be bought, and as I liked the idea of having a screen, have bought a Mini 0806 to go in the Mazda. Its installed next to the rear view mirror, and is producing excellent results. I particularly like the addition of having a screen, and for the camera to be recording the speed, and the very clear flashing light on the rear of the camera provide reassurance that it is recording. All in all an excellent product with the usual good service from the CarCamera Shop. Highly recommended.
A great little camera
Reviewed by George I decided to buy a car camera so I started looking around at what was available. This was confusing as I hadn’t used a dash camera before, but eventually I decided that the Mini 0806 would suit me. But finding a seller was difficult, it wasn’t even available on Amazon. Then I found Car Camera Shop which said that they were out of stock but getting more in soon. I placed an order along with a polarising filter and hardwire kit. I expected to have to wait for weeks but the camera arrived with days. Very good service. The camera was neatly packaged in a small box. The drawback of this is that the User Guide is tiny. You need a magnifying glass to read it! (or very good eyesight). After I had had the hardwire kit installed and the camera fitted to the windscreen I looked at the results and they were excellent. I have changed the video resolution from “2560 x 1080” to “HDR 1920 x 1080” and the video quality from “super fine” to “normal”. This seems to work well and I reckon I’ll get about eight hours recording on a 32GB MicroSD card. The camera installs a program called Qtplayer onto the card which is handy for viewing the videos. And if you have the GPS option it will also show you on a map where the video was taken. I found the protective film on the camera’s screen difficult to remove but with a bit of encouragement from Ian Bellamy of Car Camera Shop I got it off.
5 stars for the Little Giant 0806
Reviewed by John For a long time now I was considering a dash cameras then I thought why, I'm an okay driver don't need it, but since watching the footage on TV and the crazy things other drivers do and just drive off I was convinced that I ought to have one - so the hunt was on. I spent a long time looking and viewed dozens from different suppliers two in particular on the internet with very low prices supplied with very little or no backup at all. I wanted better so after researching I found an outlet who specialised in car dash cams called carcamerashop.co.uk. What a difference to actually talk to someone who not only knew their product but knew what they were talking about, having viewed their range I decided I wanted one small and discreet. I nearly bought the Mini 0805 but then was told a more updated version was coming called the Mini 0806 so having read what this little bag of tricks can do I ordered one. It was so new I had to wait 3 weeks for supplies to arrive but I was determined this is the one for me. It arrived very professionally boxed complete with full instructions how it works plus professional backup just in case. This little camera has brilliant clear daytime recordings and capable to read a number plate at 20yds - I know I paced it out, the night vision was very good, playback was good to excellent obviously allowing for the darkness but driving with street lights on it is damn good and clear. The Polarising filter works really well I can't fault it. I think if you set at 1920 x x1080 - 30fps - 16:9 for starter you will not go wrong but there is plenty to explore have a play. I haven't spoke much about the camera and what it can do apart from the basics, you need to view the carcamerashop.co.uk site judge for yourself they explain it better. Ian Bellamy always on hand to answer any questions you throw at him as well as being a well mannered polite guy they don't come much better. My summary as a user for the Mini 0806: For a medium priced camera you will not better the quality and the amount of information it holds. I know you can get cameras as little as £10 and as much as £500 but you only get what you pay for. The quality recording and playback should put this little camera in a much higher sector it competes very easy with the big boys, 5 stars for a quality camera and supplier. In fact I've renamed it The Little Giant 0806!
Mini 0806 review
Reviewed by Paul

So far its been faultless and really good quality.

Great first impression
Reviewed by Phil

I bought the Mini 0801 about 6 months ago from this site and it's been great. No problems and the service was good when I needed some help setting it up. I was waiting for the new 0806 to come out so I can put the 0801 in my wifes car and i'll take the new 0806. it arrived this morning and i have to say that it's certainly an improvement so far. the box and packaging on this new camera is better and it seems a more robust bit of kit. i got the CPL polarising filter as well which just clips on using magnetics. very impressive. the mount also has wedges so you can point the camera left/right - something missing from the previous camera. i'm going to install it this afternoon and take it out for a test drive so i'll report back with my findings! great service again from this site with fast delivery and even some free sweets!
