Stick it on the back of your rear view mirror and hide the cable along the roof liner, down the A pillar, inside the rubber door seal to the floor and then under the passenger footwell map to the lighter socket. There's no need to impinge the driver's view at all. Hate seeing people with these mounted right in front of their field of view.

Normally, your Dash Cam is plugged into the cigarette lighter for power. By getting it permanently installed by one of our professional fitters, the power cable can be neatly hidden behind the Dashboard and hard wired to your car's ignition - freeing up your cigarette lighter for any other gadgets!

That's actually not bad.... I'd pay £30 to get it hardwired into the car.

Out of interest does anyone know how the WiFi to your phone works, do you need to have data on your phone or be at home near your router? Hoping it is a bit like Bluetooth.

I don't know for this specific model, but for my yi dashcam you just connect to the cam's access point. No mobile data used (as far as I am aware) just allows the camera to stream video to phone or download files (via WiFi locally).

See no reason why this would be different.
^^ beat me to it!
It creates a local area network n let you access data on devices with same network. Just works like any router.
Having it dangling in your field of view like that is a good way to get pulled up by the Police.
Obviously not whilst driving ????

car looks to be static, however that does not usually not stop people these days using their phones while driving and occasionally injuring or killing someone.

Best to hardwire it, then frees up the cigarette lighter to light up a big Spliff.

I paid Halfords to hardwire one in my ds3 and they did a superb job. Because my camera is to left of my mirror I forget it’s there. No wires visible and no mess, just turns it’s self on when the ignition is turned on
Wouldn't trust someone from Halfords to fit floor mats, let alone do some actual wiring...
And surely a fuse tap would be the easiest way to hardwire it?

Hardwire is simple. Cigarette lighter extension cable,splice into wires on back of cigarette lighter in car to create a hidden extension behind dash. Hide camera wires then plug into hidden socket. Ignition on,camera on. Ignition off,camera off.
No need for the expensive hardwire kit.
£2.95 extension on eBay.
Simples.

It literally takes 10 mins to do it yourself, and you can just use an inline fuse and feed off something else like the cars audio so it stays powered until you lock your car..

you could just wire direct to the battery, but wouldn't recommend it. best way is use the fuse box to test each connection until you find one that stays on with ignition off.
Why have 1 of these in the first place? Is it to record accidents as of when they occur?

Hopefully as proof that the accident was not your fault, saves trying to argue who was at fault and in some cases the need to go to court. Also there is a lot of scams lately of people running up to your car why stationery and throwing themselves against the bonnet and claiming you have run them over, not only could it out up your premium but also get you several points for undue care and attention.



Nof the UK but this is how it happens

Even if she is driving, it appears to be on private land , a car park ? Whilst on the subject the general public need to be made aware if they're in an underground car park with no signal , they're are people who sit opposite the entrance waiting for drivers to emerge holding their phone trying to get signal and record it on cam for later use

No you cannot without a proper hard wire kit with a box that reduces the voltage...dash cam is 5 volt,car electrics are 12 volt..you will fry your dash cam.

Hardly hardwiring using a cigarette lighter socket and also some cars sockets stay live with the ignition off so that wouldn't work for all...a proper kit is £5-£10,use a piggy back fuse adaptor for the wiring kit (which gives out 5v for the cam not 12v,radio fuse most commonly used as on/off with ignition ),connect the earth wire and run the hardwire kit wire/mini usb plug to where you want the camera...job done.

Yes....that's what you need,only mentioned the voltage thing as some automatically think the cam is 12v as it runs from the cigarette lighter and don't realise the lead/plug that comes with a cam reduces the voltage to 5v so when hardwiring you need the kit like you have shown....just make sure you get the right plug for the cam,some use mini usb,some micro usb...some kits come the both.

We hope so. The daft cow is going to hit those metallic bollards if so. And then the insurance would demand the footage from that newly installed dash cam to get out of paying.

Put it high up and to the left of your mirror and you barely notice it. It certainly doesn't block your view. No way would the cops take action, they probably want everyone to have one to record offences and cause of accidents
Probably not best to inform your insurers you have a dash cam, they'd want to see footage in the event of a claim either for or against you, even if it might not be in your best interests for them to see it.
