Hi guys.


Looking at getting dashcam fitted professionally.
I know its easy but Id rather get it done properly with wires hidden.

Just wondering if anyone else has hardwired their own dashcam and any bad effects of hiding the wiring such as loose panels etc.


BTW the camera Im going to get installed in this one so I can record rear and front...front only seems 50% protection IMO.

I did three and had no issues with loose panels or visible wiring. The only visible wires are those that come out the headliner to the camera itself. The one in my CR-V was my only two channel. The rear window in my wife's car was tinted too dark for a camera and the way the window was on my truck it wouldn't allow for one. I had no issues at all. Had to remove rear seats in one of my installs. Pictures upon request, although they are in other threads of this topic.

This one I chose as I didnt want to run a lead to rear.....Got good reviews, however, yes crv 2011 got tinted rear but cant do nothing about that....

!!


Although good point, just if I get rear ended.. I need proof too not just front cameras like everyone has.

If you can post pics on this thread...would be great.


Had someone in England state that try recording 720 or 1080 off phone cam through rear window to test tint issue.

Any ideas on that one?
