Dashcam installation
« on: March 19, 2016, 09:43:11 PM »
Hi, I have a dashcam unit which fits over the rear view mirror but for a decent look the power wires need to be run under the headlining and dash down to the cig lighter.

I'm wary of doing this myself as I don't want break anything...is this something you could do for me (for a charge of course)?

TIA

Graeme

Do it yourself very very easy get a plastic tool similar to a flat head screwdriver and and just pop the wire into the headliner took me 5mins to do

I can post some pics if you need

I just pushed mine in with my fingers.  Just had to yank the door seal a bit to tuck the cable under there, but it's really not hard or a job I would pay someone to do.  Especially if you are just using the cig lighter.  Mine is hardwired and I did it myself with a fuse adapter.

Hi All,

Can anyone recommended the best Dash cam ? I was thinking of the Nextbase GW312GW, but looks a bit chunky, I really would like a Mini cam - any recommendations?? thanks

As above - push in with fingers - then drill a small hole next to the cig socket so you can hide all the wires under the centre console - like this:
