So it is fixed. I prefer not to block out the field of vision, so you can’t see the dash cam in the back of the interior mirror.



2、Remove the dash cam, ensure whether it works normally. If it check after wiring, so you can’t ensure whether the dash cam is the question. So before wiring, you must ensure. And then inset the memory card.

Then connect the power to the cigarette lighter and press the key to choose the language after the machine started normally.

Although it may vary depending on the type of car, it is generally clear which position connects and which cable is drawn after the fuse box is opened.
