Dash cam installation guide

Over recent years, the demand for dash cams has surged, with them becoming a popular item that can be integrated into vehicles to gain quality footage in case an accident arises, which will help to protect them against false insurance claims.

We have the most advanced range of dash cams available which can be suitable for different vehicles, driving styles and budgets that all include the most sophisticated GPS features and velocity tracking alongside being able to detect collisions and lane departures.

Even though there are endless benefits of installing a dash cam, motorists are often put off as it seems quite intruding, however, you will not even know it’s there!

Dash cams can either monitor the front of the vehicle or the rear, or both in some instances, so it probably seems like an impossible task to install it, however this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Firstly, you need to ask yourself where do you want in mounting?

If your device is the simplest mirror mounted camera or front facing wired camera, it is likely that it came with a simple installation kit, so all you need to do is plug it in and go, by attaching it to the window and pointing the lens to road, then adjust the viewing angle by rotating the camera.

When you have secured it into the right place, simply run cameras wire around the body of the car, under its carpet in the foot well, then plug it into the cigarette lighter or other alternative power socket. You can conceal the wire under the windows edge.

If your windscreen is heat reflective, the GPS function will not be able to work, however the camera will still be able to function without it. Be aware that they often have blank patches which allows a GPS signal to penetrate through. However, they are not guaranteed.

Ensure that it doesn’t obstruct the view of the driver.

The higher end dash cams often require hard-wiring into your vehicles electronics permanently. However, you don’t need to worry, our patrols can do this for you, in a location that’s best for you.

At the RAC, we recommended that you invest in a dash cam as it can provide you with evidence in case an emergency arises which potentially could save you tonnes of money.

Take a look at our dash cam range which all go above and beyond their core function.
