Hi all After a near miss with a sprinter van last year that saw me put the car in a motorway barrier, I decided now is the time to sort a dash cam. Firstly, after reading up on PistonHeads' massive Dash Camera's thread, I chose the Mini 0801 and a 32gb (class 6) micros SD card Fitted the camera first (charging from the car cig socket to test) Nicely tucked out of the way The additonal cig lighter kit And a neat little add-a-circuit Trial fitted the A-A-C. This is fitted into the existing cig socket fuse, with the two fuses then placed into the A-A-C. Removed the trim panels on both the driver and pax side to get behind the console I'm REALLY crap at soldering! Wires tie-wrapped up and fitted to the extra cig socket Trim panels back in Now, finding an earth point is fun. The A-A-C has a ring connector, which attached to an earth up above this throttle bracket (not as illustrated below). PAX trim refitted and the wiring tucked behind the carpet Wiring disappearing up inside the air vent I'm not massively happy with this, so will have a re-think And wiring up the A-pillar. Following the airbag, ensuring it was tucked out of the way should it ever need to fire! Then remove the sun visor so the roof lining will drop a touch Tuck the cable up inside the roof lining and refit the A-pillar and visor and you are left with this Only the wire is visible from the drivers seat. I don't think this will put me off whilst driving, It seemed difficult to remove the headlining around the map lights to try and tuck it behind the tinted mirror wiring. The only issue I now have is that somehow, I'm not quite sure how, but my car cig lighter is still switched live as you'd expect, but for some reason the dash cam is permanent live! As soon as I connect a fuse it switches on and starts charging, regardless of whether the key is in the ignition or the car is locked etc. The car's cig socket remains functioning perfectly normally. No matter, the car is off to SpeedyGee for some other work this afternoon (whilst I'm away working) so he is going to try to figure out where I went wrong!
