    Dash Cam install

    Hi all,

    I've just purchased a Blackview dash cam and completed a "hard-wired" install myself.

    Purchased the cam from Overdrive in Metrotown mall - Burnaby (suburb of Vancouver BC), it cam with the Power Magic Pro. For accessories needed for the hard-wired install I picked up the following from Canadian Tire; 2 "piggy back" fuse clips, wire snap ties, 3/4"x 1/4" bolt and lock-washers (for grounding attachment).

    Mounted the cam to the passenger side of the mirror,
    Ran the wiring along the top of windshield,
    across the A pillar,
    into the upper driver side door seal,
    across the B pillar,
    into the upper rear door seal,
    down the rear pillar,
    and into the rear fuse box.

    Tested the fuses with the vehicle off to find a live fuse as well as a fuse that goes dead after the vehicle is turned off (both must be a maximum of 10amps),
    "piggy backed" 3 amp fuses to both these circuits to run the dash cam (the Power Magic Pro's specs indicate it runs off a maximum of 3 amps).
    Provided a ground via a bolted connection to the metal beside the fuse boxes (there is a slot in the metal panel that is used to bolt the ground to the body)
    You can see the grounded connection to the right of the Power Magic control box in the photographs - the blue spade connection is bolted to the slot in the metal body panel.

    Runs like a charm. When the buggy is fired up, the dash cam goes into "normal" recording mode, when turned off the cam goes into parking mode - recording starts upon motion detection or a bump to the car.
