    I also got the next base one for Christmas. Using the supplied mount, I fixed it to the passengers side of the windscreen just beside the rear view mirror beneath the black strip. I ran the wire along the top of the head lining and then down the rubber seal at the a pillar. I then ran it along the bottom of the glove and along the side of the centre console into the 12v in the rear. You can't as we the cable at all and the camera works great

    what about the sensor behind the rear view? isnt it obstructing it? ive decided to put it at the passenger side for now until the new mount comes

    Hi, I have the Nextbase 402G in mine and have it hard wired into the car. I too thought it looked to bluky with the windscreen mount that came with the camera, so used this instead...

    Just a thought -- dash came are good or are they? -- they can also be incriminating with the police having the legal right to confiscate them after a accident -- if you've got a cam that shows time, date and speed be aware with a loop recorder that speeding habits will have been recorded well before or leading up to a incident -- think twice

    Terrible idea having a dash cam, give it to the Mrs

    Why on Earth would you want to provide evidence for your potential traffic offence conviction? Of course, unless you drive like an angel of course! But, having a vxr, I'm kind of doubting that.
