Haha, what a coincidence Kurt, as mine (exact same dash-cam) just arrived in the post yesterday. (only got back home today)

 

Having fiddled with the settings, (also used the GUI windows tool, its great), I need to figure out a permanent wiring solution.

 

Great to see you bought it too though - great little piece of kit it seems!

 

I'm sure you are as i am very impressed with the video quality! on 1080p with high settings it's just great! :D

 

Did you purchase a mount and if so what one did you go for?

I didn't have much of a chance to try it out yet mate - the camera arrived just an hour after I left for a long weekend road-trip! Great luck eh? ^_^

But I've played around with the settings, and taken a few vids at home and it seems great. It took me quite a while to figure out what all the LED colours mean! I was amazed at how small it is though.

I purchased the windscreen sucker mount that eletepo (cant remember the exact name) sells on eBay, I bought it with the camera. I haven't fixed it to the car yet, but it appears quite sturdy, and easily adjustable so I am quite happy with it.

Just to let you know guys I have ordered this power inverter/cable.

http://pages.ebay.co...id=130978719862

You can get either left or right angled. Right angled will go back across the body of the device and I think it will look neater that way. I then intend to go behind the roof lining down the passenger a pillar and behind the glovebox piggy backing on an acc activated fuse so it stops/starts with the ignition button.

Like kurt I also bought both the suction cup and the permanent sticky mount (may as well at under 6quid for both)

Looking forward to getting this great price and great review from Kurt that really sold it to me

Another cool thing I have discovered is you can configure the device and also view your videos via an android device with usb-otg support.

I've just realised the its the left angled power cable/inverter that's gonna be best not the right angled one either will work but its the left angled one that I think will make it look neater

Steve same opinion i have i'm very happy with it indeed it really has met my expectations

This cable is perfect, left angle it best, it will stay within the area of the camera only and back to the roof lining. Temp wired it under the passenger sun visor and under the passenger A pillar had two people in the car who did not notice the wire going down the side under the glove box, once i get all the right cables it will be completely hidden, the wiring will come from the same place as the rain sensor wiring, will look the business when i'm done!

 

Do you know what ACC cable you're tapping into? it would be great if there is an ACC power supply under the glove box rather than running cables to the radio.

Yeah there is an official app on google play store free! USB OTG 99p UK seller how cool is that! http://www.ebay.co.u...=item3f26b5cadc

The first cable you posted was actually left bud it's correct :D

 

 

BTW i forgot to mention how good the camera feels, unlike the usual china brittle plastic stuff, mobius cam has a soft grippy plastic feel it's great, feels solid

There are a fair few options on the cabin fuseboard I did have a look but cant remember the numbers now. Thing is with the piggy back fuse you can just swap around until you find the one that works.

Haha blatant running of a red light by that accord on the night vid!

Hahaha I just saw this today, and I literally only saw the guy jumping the red light in that video. I had to rewind it a couple times to make sure my eyes were not deceiving me. LOLOLOL.

 

Ah kurt this is perfect, I been looking for a dash cam but wasn't planning to spend the earth on one. This would go perfect with the parking sensor screen and with all the nutters around Croydon and London in general, be great to catch them.

Excellent idea, this is the perfect way to go about it. My DRL came pre-wired with an exact kit like this.

 

This wont require any cutting at all, just a matter of attaching the earth to something, nice one james.

With one of the left angle usb cables like james posted it will fit perfectly behind the rearview mirror or in your case parking sensor screen. I agree on the nutters in croydon and london in general!

 

Like the corsa driver, no respect for other road users.

 

The camera can keep recording if leaving your car parked somewhere that worries you a bit, pressing the on button will switch the camera to recording mode 2 using battery, primary record mode can be 1080p and secondary recording can be 720p, less power consumption and space usage whilst on battery
