Brought to you NIMITZ (Original) rear-view mirror mounting kit for Xiaoyi Yi , Xiaomi Mijia, 360 1st and 2nd generation Car Camera / Dashcam / Driving recorder
** Solid mounting + Hiding/concealing + Minimal visual blocking **
GUARANTEED ORIGINAL NIMITZ PRODUCT, NO IMMITATION!
Value: Why need rear-view mirror mounting?
3 Main Advantages:
(1) Solid mounting:
Traditional suction cup would drop/fall in times and causing undesirable bubble wave on valuable car windows tinting film.
Sticker mounting would break tint film if removing and may also drop when the sticky layer get overheated & hardened in times.
On other hand, rear-view mirror mounting is the better choice, no dropping and no damaging windows tinting film.
(2) Hiding/concealing car cam:
Afraid of break-in stealing your car cam?
Do not put car cam at too obvious position, suction cup & sticker mounting would simply expose them easily.
Let's hiding it now behind the rear-view mirror.
(3) No visual blocking:
Putting car cam behind rear view mirror enable getting least visual blocking, better driving observation & attention. No more blocking by gadgets on windscreen.
What are available in this Nimitz package?
This is *Special Edition* by Nimitz specially for XiaoYi and 360 dashcam, so it contains only 2 particular adapters for both brand recorders.
This is not general Nimitz edition (explained in Q&A later).
It also provides a sticker type adapter, in case one would like to stick yi cam to rear windscreen as 2nd cam for rear situation recording.
Updates stock info (June 2016):
Nimitz now offering "improved version" from this xiaoyi/360 special edition, whereby 2 new accessories has been added into package.
Before June/2016: a view of all accessories in Nimitz yi/360 mounting kit special edition.
From June/2016: 2 new accessories added to Nimitz yi/360 mounting kit special edition:
First new accessory is a long pillar:
What makes long pillar a major improvement?
By using long pillar, you can now make better adjusted angle so that yi cam can fully cover up by mirror, no expose some bottom part of the body while using short pillar last time.
Additional tips: it is recommended using after market 300mm wide mirror which the width is wider than stock mirror so that can easily conceal car cam in behind.
Second new accessory is redesigned joint body for 360cam:
This new joint body comes in 14mm ball room size at one end, and the other end with 16mm ball room size.
It allow users reapply the same adapter provided by 360cam which with non-standard 14mm ball size.
In fact, if got any other car cam with adapter that got a ball size around 15-16mm, you can always apply to this Nimitz mounting kit.
Updates stock info (April 2017):
Good news to Xiaomi Mijia dashcam users, Nimitz is bundling new Xiaomi Mijia adapter in this special edition package.
Also got a lot of additional adapters for 360 branded dashcam's 2nd generation, and handy grinding knife, etc.
This special package is now officially support 3 manufacturer cams, namely xiaoyi yi cam (all variants), xiaomi mijia cam, 360 cam generation 1 and 2.
Question 1: Why choose Nimitz instead of cheaper others? (Nimitz VS cheap cap ayam / clone / imitated)
The rule of thumb in biz world: cost = quality always prevail. Nimitz is using better material and better design, see details below.
1.1) Clipping design flaw:
Other maker is using 1 side screw tightening, whereas Nimitz provide both side screw tightening up, balance and stable!
Other maker's diameter of the mounting hole is FIXED, very limited application. User must add more rubber liner inside it to hold on smaller/slimmer pillar. But then it is the rubber liner which hold on to the pillar, not the tightening screw any more, can imagine it? 2 layers rubber line can cause slippery.
Nimitz supports variety pillar size from min 12mm up to 65mm with 2 type of screws of different height. Just need 1 rubber liner to strengthen stability.
** Summary: Nimitz provides both side screw tightening up, fitting variety of pillar size. Stability achieved with 1 rubber liner only !!!
1.2) Screw and nut material:
Nimitz's screw and nut are made of metal, whereby other makers use metal screw + plastic nut.
Nimitz enable consistent strong fastening power, whereby others with plastic nut would degrade fastening power over times.
1.3) Rubber liner design and material:
Nimitz rubber liner is more elastic (flexible), with matte friction finish that provide more grip power.
Others' rubber line is less elastic (flexible), with flat finish that provide less grip power.
1.4) Power cable storage:
Nimitz joint body provides a hanger to store usb power cable neat and tidy, no mess up with cable.
Question 2: Is this Nimitz general/standard package? can general/standard package fit Xiaoyi?
Answer 2: No, this is special edition. Nimitz general/standard package comes with multiple adapters, but those adapters do not fit xiaoyi, this one is special package by NIMITZ to fit both hot selling xiaoyi and 360 dashcam with suitable adapter respectively.
Question 3: Authenticity, is your stock original NIMITZ? I saw some overseas ecommerce site selling at much higher price.
Answer 3: Yes, it is original NIMITZ stock.
1) Every Nimitz package comes with authenticity checking sticker on its instruction manual!
2) Engraved Nimitz brand name on accessory and rubber liner!
3) I got the stock from NIMITZ directly, namely from Nanjing province, China. Not from other famous trading province like guangzhou, shenzhen, etc whereby many imitated/clone products exist.
Question 4: Is your stock June's "Improved Edition" or old stock?
Answer 4: Now all my stock are "Improved Edition" with 2 newly added accessories.

Purchase with Purchase Offer:
100% concealing your dashcam/ driving recorder!
One main purpose applying rearview mirror mounting kit is to hiding up your dashcam.
But what if camera body color is not black? It still visible. Modern dashcam got variety of color, such as grey, gold color in xiaoyi.
For security matter, car cam body color is better 'tuned' into black.
Applying a dark solar tint film on dashcam casing can achieve these purposes:
a) concealing dashcam
b) helps heat rejection
Available now this 100% pure black solar film, best use for this purpose. It is a true solar film, not like plastic film available in Mr.DIY. According to supplier, this film use korea material.
3M -super thin -high temparature resistance -double sided -tape would be provided to stick the film to cam plastic body. This kind of 3m tape is being used for smartphone digitizer sticking up, not same like those being sold in stationary shop. This is super thin & very sticky. (a few short strips cut off, NOT A WHOLE ROLL YA!)
Solar film helps reject heat being absorbed by xiaoyi dashcam, remember, xiaoyi use rechargeable battery, heat do harm to battery.
Using non solar film black paper would absorb more heat because black color does not reflect light. Take note.
PWP: Juz add RM4, u can get 1 piece of darkest solar film (cut off size around 10cm x 6cm) + this 3m tape strips (cut off, a few strips).
Here got simple pictures illustration:
Price: Nimitz mounting kit alone (new batch) - RM25
PWP optional: black solar film + 3m tapes - add RM4
Poslaju add RM7.50 peninsular, RM10 sarawak, RM11 sabah
