Re: Dash Cams - Down Under

I hope so, installing yourself is a piece of piss. I am going to redo mine and take some pics because I got a few PMs about it. Not sure why, I thought Chris's install pics were helpful.
I do still need to see if my way has caused some cable crimping. I haven;t touched anything since I got it setup.
I reduced the G-Sensor sensitivity massively as it was beeping over small stuff, now it only goes off when I drive through round abouts in my normal manner when no one else is in the car.

I do think the video quality is pretty average.

I'll be keen to see how you set yours up too Snuke, always good to get a few more pics.

I was wondering before mine arrives this week, if it's possible to reverse the cams, so front at the back as it's the better cam for my blind spot and the rear at the front?
Reason being that peeps love tailgating and I've been rammed off the road from behind before and usually I'm pretty observant with oncoming traffic so if I hit anything in front then it's usually my fault.

Re: Dash Cams - Down Under

Us the PMP thing a battery guard or similar??
I saw the posts on how to install the cam but decided I would rather pay than attempt to do it myself. Easy for some but I have absolutely no knowledge of car wiring ect.

Re: Dash Cams - Down Under

I like it. I guess that means you have it working on your iPad. I still can’t get it working on my iPhone. I haven’t tried since the app update two days ago, but that was to fix iOS 8 issues, and I’m on iOS 7.1.12.

iPad connects fine. I'll try my iPhone4, iOS 7.1.2 shortly and let you know how that goes. Meanwhile I'll update the firmware and see if that helps.

Re: Dash Cams - Down Under

A quick format and new firmware install sorted out the image. It's a bit jerky in places so will try to adjust some settings but I agree with you Snuke, it's not the best

Re: Dash Cams - Down Under

Also I might try placing it to the left of the rear view mirror as it seems to take more windscreen real estate from my viewing and so that I can revolve it and view inside the cab without being blocked by the mirror.
Amazing how hot the little squirt gets too.

Re: Dash Cams - Down Under

I’ve got my lens sitting in the centre and it’s not in the way.

Top pic so you have it not under the sensor but behind the mirror itself. I'll try that, thanks for the pic.
