Installing my Blackvue DR650GW-2CH

I started with the rear camera, as the wire was going it be the longest to hide, i decided to position it on the passenger side, under the windscreen wiper blade, as directly in the middle was no good because the wipers miss a half moon section of the screen.

once positioned, i ran the wire under the plastic trim, just pushed it up with my fingers, then down the channel where the trim overlaps, the wire fits into this. I held it there with some masking tape, when the tailgates closed you cant see any wire.

I then ran the wire under the rubber seal until it meet the left side pillar



Then again using just my fingers i pushed the wire under it, i left a little showing so you can see.

Then hid the wire under the black trim, this just pulls down


Then again under the pillar, i then pushed the remaining wire under the headlining, then to the bracket that hold the front camera








The front camera was positioned on the passenger side, it cant be seen when driving as its hidden by the mirror
The front camera wire was pushed into the headlining, then down the same black trim


The power wire was continued down the black trim, alongside the door past the plastice cover where the passinger airbag is turned on/off.

I then drilled a small hole eek lol, and passed the wire underneath it so it went behind the lower glove compartment to the power magic pro.

The magic pro has 3 wires the yellow is permanent live, i found that fuse F4 was empty, and marked as spare but permanently life, so i used a 5 amp fuse wrapped it around the spade and pushed it in.
The red wire is live with the ignition on and i found that the fuse directly above is perfect. The black is earth, and i used the upper 10mm bolt, that to the right of the fuse compartment to place the black wire.







i used insulating tape to hold the wires together, then placed the fuse cover back on, the wires fit in a gap between the catch

With the glove box still down i gathered all the wire and taped them together, i then used double sided tape and tapped the wire to the back on the glove box





I used a clip to hold the power cigarette socket, i used insulating take to cove the metal as it also helps to hold the wires and i didn't want it rubbing overtime and possibly shorting the wires, i taped the male and female cigarette sockets together using insulating tape, just to stop them coming apart, i then stuck the access power wire to the side on the glove box, again using double sided tape





I stuck the power magic box using the double sided tape. When the glove box is closed you have access to the on of switch and the wires are out of view
Last pictures are of the front camera and the view to the rear.










I hope this helps someone, and thanks to all for the PM's and advice

Couple of questions :-

1) How have you go on in general with it, and would you still recommend?

2) Is there any better way of routing the cable over the inside of the top of the rear tailgate (eg where masking tape is shown being used)?

Cheers

Ian

Hmmm so do I do it myself, or have it fitted professionally? (http://blackvuehd.co.uk/blackvue-camera-installations-uk/)

And any views on the new Blackvue DR650SGW HD2CH ?

How do you find the image payback on the Blackvue?, I fitted one to the front and find that recorded footage does not clearly show number plates, I was wondering if the Rangie Heated windscreen is causing the clarity drop due to the matrix built into the windscreen glass ?

I appear to have the same camera setup in mine but no instructions. Assuming I know nothing, how can I talk to these things? It tells me it has no wi-fi every time I move off. I know that much.
