I really cannot see why a dashcam would interfere with any of the electronics. They are no different than any modern, high-spec car. A leading dashcam company declined to fit a camera to my car for a different reason. All the inside fusebox is permanently 12v live and there is no bulkhead penetration to take a switched supply from the under-bonnet fuse box. If anyone has fitted a dashcam successfully, I would be pleased to hear how it was done and where the power supply was taken from.

Further to the Dash Cam saga. I have now installed my unit with a hard wired feed from the AC Power outlet. This outlet I came across by chance when sat in the passenger side of the car! My camera is supplied with a long enough lead and plug to be able to route the cable behind the glove box and up behind the left A post trim and headlining to camera. I'm assured by the camera manufacturers that there is nothing on my unit that could interfere with any of the Gizmo's on the car.

Anybody mount a dashcam on the rear view mirror assembly?

Its hard to find one to mount there.

We tinted the front glass so we can't mount it on the glass.

I usually mount it using a rear view mirror mount which clamps on to the arm but the MX-30 has no arm. Well, it's very small that I can't use a clamp.

My dashcam specialist declined to fit a camera in my car. Said he could not find a suitable power supply. When you figure out a way to mount it, I would be interested to hear where you picked up the power and how you routed the cable.

I fitted my nextbase dashcam using the 12v socket next to the USB sockets. Tucked wire into the trim above the windscreen, down the windscreen pillar trim , tucked into the door rubber trim and along the back of passenger footwell and just final the 6 inches into the socket are visible if you look hard enough. Turns on with the car...and off with the car, no auto electricians (just a long nextbase lead) required
