    Does anyone install Dashcam?

    Hey all,

    I have been contemplating to get a front dash cam and possibly a rear cam to. I have seen some close encounters, and I want to have proof for insurance purposes.

    Does anyone have one installed? what's a good brand?

    I saw there is one brand REXING V1 that has like over 4000 reviews on Amazon with 4 stars.

    Any thoughts?

    Subscribed to this thread...since I have a dash cam that I have been looking to install and want to know how to best hard wire it to a always in power source (dash and has motion sensor and shock sensor to capture issues during parking)

    I would like to know the location of the fuse box and how to open the trim on the A pillar to run the wire down from the headliner

    I just installed my dash cam. I ran the wire on the driver side using the cig outlet below your right knee. I tucked it under the lower trim to the left side dash tucking it in the weather strip to the left upper pillar. Then I tucked it into the upper headliner to the black box and put the dash right below it. I haven't installed the rear yet but will probably go the passenger side for that one.

    Wow the Thinkware F800 does look good. But it's $450 on Amazon including the rear camera.. that's way out of my budget lol.

    We have a Street Guardian dash cam and it is excellent. It was also not very expensive, but we chose a relatively basic model; for example, ours does not have GPS capability so it cannot record the speed at which we drive (while generally safe and legal drivers, my wife and I did not feel that the possibility of self-incrimination was worth the novelty of having our speed show up).

    Not having your speed showing in the dash cam data is of limited protection, your speed can be closely estimated by observing the images it captures.

    Of course, you are absolutely right. But I don't see the value in spending extra money to make it obvious.

    My main point is that spending money on high quality optical equipment is much more valuable than bells and whistles like GPS or WiFi connectivity. And our Street Guardian camera does a great job in all lighting levels and cost under $130 Canadian.

    I believe you have to be careful about where to install a dashcam as the rear view mirror has a camera that's used for the active cruise control (on higher trim levels). I also want to install a dashcam. I currently have a Rexing V1P. The quality of the front cam is decent but the rear sucks since it's not HD. The V1LG has an HD rear camera though so I'm considering it as well as the Street Guardian.

    I've used a dash cam in my vehicle for the past year or so. The one I currently use is the Frizione 2.4" 4K dash cam. It's a relatively small footprint and has great images. Also you can connect to it via wifi and use a free app to view recordings. It's front only though.

    I haven't put one in my van yet but it's on my to do list.

    Ya'll don't have problems with the van's various sensors freaking out? I can't even use a Bluetooth scan tool in my van because the dash lights up with all kinds of lights and warnings.

    I bought the Garmin 45 Dash Cam with the wire harness. It was easy to run the harness down the drivers side to under the dash where the fuse panel is. I bought a fuse tap and tested with a voltmeter the nearly 40 fuses to try and identify one that is 12v only when the ACC is on. All of them had a maintained 12v whether the ACC was on or off. The schematic here in the link below shows that fuse 27 is switched on only when the ACC relay is closed but that's not the case. Anyone know where I can find the right fuse location for ACC?

    Don't know what fuse to use for ACC but I would like to know too. I have the Thinkware F800 Pro. The link you sent was useful.

    My question is what it the best way to route a wire from the front to back hidden. Not sure what panels to take off or how to take them off. I'v searched youtube but have not found anything for the 2018 Odyssey yet.
