    I have a 2015 Mazda 3 without any Homelink mirror, rain-sensing wipers, smart city, etc. I want to add a dashcam to my car but I want to try connecting the wires into the place where these factory sensors would get power from if they were installed. Will this be possible with both always-on...

    Hi forum, first post here.. I got a dashcam and then realized that the accessory socket port is always on, so even if I turn off the ignition, it will still power the dashcam. That is of course unacceptable. I have been asking around for a potential solution for my Blackvue DR750S. Here are...

    I'm getting ready to purchase a 2019 Mazda3 Sedan and one of the first things I'd like to do is install a front/rear dashcam. Specifically, the Viofo A129 Duo. Normally I'll mount the front dashcam just below the mirror and run the wires underneath of the headliner just above the windshield...

    Hello everyone, My dashcam will not turn off whenever I turn off the car. It'll stay on all day and night if I don't unplug it. It seems that the cigarette lighter plug is still getting current when the vehicle is off. Any way to turn that off? Thank you!

    So I was wondering if anyone on here has routed a rear dashcam into their Hatchback? Onto the back window. I was looking into the back and I was thinking I would have to get under the roof lining and through the rubber covers so that I could mount it on the back window. What do you guys...

    Hi, i just installed one of those dashcam that has WiFi access. The one i particularly got was the Yi Dash cam that you can access files and live feed via an app installed on your phone (android in my case). I was wondering if there is ongoing project that can allow the CMU to access the same...

    My car has a big box deal around the rear view mirror, not sure what all is even in there. Wondering if anyone has that and also a dash cam installed. I am curious if it takes up too much space on windshield, would love some pics. Thank you!

    Here's a writeup on how to mount your Dashcam, without removing any pillars or hardwiring the dashcam. I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome and hence i'm sharing the photos and a video sample. Dashcam G1W-CB Tried several positions, this came out least obtrusive and most functional. Wire...

    Hi folks, The first mod I want to make to my about-to-arrive 3 is to fit a dashcam. I have the camera (mini 0805) and a hard wire kit, along with the various bits I will need (add a fuse etc). My questions are: - where should I mount it? I was thinking beside the mirror, but there is such a...

    Have anyone tried installing a dashcam in your unit? If yes, can you show me how it's done? I've been thinking how will I route the cables in such a way that it is hidden. Another problem I see is the cigarette lighter plug which is inside the arm rest.

    Has anybody hardwired a dashcam to their Mazda3? I'm looking to get this done soon. I'm also a complete noob at car modding, so I have a good amount of trepidation. Once I have it done I promise to post a how-to guide :wink: **EDIT (7/10/15)** I felt like I just barely managed to flub...
