I decided to read the Jeep manual re power outlets, and learnt that the battery symbol for the centre console outlet is not there to tell me it is supplying 12v, but to tell me it is wired directly to battery and powered all of the time, therefore getting drained all of the time. The Key symbol on the outlet in the media cubby means it is only on once the car hits ACC mode or more, and then powered of when the turned off and door shut.
I moved the plug to now be plugged in under my brake controller in the centre cubby, and it is working as I want, powering off one the door closes.
I will check the cable on Sat to see if it being crimped at all, as it seems to be getting more downward pressure from that position. I have a hole in the cubby for my brake controller, so I can move the wire through there if needed.



The 650s fuse and excess cable are now all kept under the left knee area panel, so even less cable sticking out, it is cleaner than before.
Wouldnt it be more nicer and less tampering if you wired all additional portable accessories like camera or radar to the fusebox - ive used a "fuse tap" and works great. No need to cut or splice wires behind the fusebox. You can still maintain fuse and additional fuse with a fuse tap, yet still close the fuse box door.

Easy to remove if you sell the car.

Re: Dash Cams - Down Under

So...I want to verify that my thinking is correct, or have someone tell me I'm wrong if not!

I can buy the 16GB 650, and just purchase a separate 64GB SD card, correct? Also, is the system overwriting, in the sense that...once the card is full, would I have to manually delete all the footage, or will the system automatically overwrite the most dated footage?

Yes you can use a larger card and yes it automatically overwrites Polizei.

Re: Dash Cams - Down Under

Need to tune the G-Force setting on the camera, this take off thought it was an event lol

Bit of dash reflection, probably the same on most vehicles

Time to update your profile to show a location. It's helpful for all, especially when posting in the Export threads.

Re SD card, it suggests formatting the card every couple if weeks. 64GB will give you several average days of recordings.

Plugging into the never used accessories plug is as simple as it gets.

Thanks, got it updated. Do you know the approximate length (in time) the 64GB card will hold?
