    Hi, wondering if anyone can share how they secured dash cam wiring from the window to the power source (cigerette lighter/USB/etc). I'm trying to avoid taking any panels off but could be convinced if it looks easy. Pictures would be great.

  7. Installed Dash Cam - little different approach

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    When we got our new CRV, we used the dash camera off our old car on the CRV. The camera is a Vico-Opia 2 that I had it hooked up to Vico's Power-Plus battery management system on the old car but didn't want to bother with that on the CRV. In fact I was looking for a simple, hidden hookup with...

    Hi All. My 2015 CRV Touring has three USB ports and one “cigarette lighter” power supply in its center console, and one additional “cigarette lighter” power supply near the gear selector. For purposes of a dash cam’s “motion detection” feature I want to install, which (if any) of these ports...
  9. Touring Built in Camera as Dash Cam

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    The 2018 CR-V Touring (and other models) have a built in camera that is used for LKAS/ACC and I believe for AEB too. Wouldn't it be possible to use the same camera as a Dash Cam? In theory, it should be possible to just continuously record it on a USB key, or something like that. Has anyone...
  10. Dash Cam Location Tips?

    Mobile Electronics
    I want to install a Garmin dash cam but don't want to block any sensors that may be located on the back of the rear view mirror. It appears there is some kind of round lens sensor there but I'm not sure what it may be. I'm guessing auto headlight dimmer? Any advice greatly appreciated bxman

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    I received a dashcam for Christmas, and also received the wiring to plug it into the fuse box. I have an '09 CRV EX-L. Which slot should I use? I see 7, 22, 23 & 27 are empty. Any of these good, or will I need to combine it with another existing fuse? FWIW, I do want it to shut off when...

  14. Fix for oil draing from variable timing cam sprocket

    Problems & Issues
    I have posted on the long thread concerning the noise issue on cold starts and the vtc valve. I am looking for ideas from like minded technical people who are willing to think outside the realm of the Honda "non-fix" of replacing the vtc valve which does not really solve the problem. Some sort...

  17. Dash Cam

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    If you are using a Dash Cam, what model do you have? I recently purchased a Kdlinks R100 after much research. I wanted a low profile one that was dual channel (front/rear cams), which basically cutout half of the dash cams out there. I've been real happy with it so far and the company has...
  18. Dash Cam Recommendation

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I've been reading several threads on here about using a dash cam and its benefits. I've looked at several online and they seem a little bulky. I don't want to take it up/down all the time, I want to leave it in place. I'm just concerned about theft, I don't want someone causing break-in...
  19. Dash Cam

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I have been thinking about installing a dash cam in my new 2017 CRV EXL. I've been waffling between the Viofo A119, BlackSys CH 100B, and the Thinkware F770. Behind the rearview mirror is the safety camera system and the bottom is a flat black piece of plastic. I'm wondering if that would be a...
