2) Is there a mod for getting a courtesy light in the BACK of the passenger compartment? Ditto an extra light in the boot area?
 
Just going to wait and see what happens now....


I just had some led strips off eBay, wired into the existing boot light (one either side). Couldn't ask for more light!

The coolant will get very hot (and if you suddenly open the coolant cap it may suddenly boil).

Why not the dash cam? Was it the 0805 you chose?

I'm sure its in the manual. The idea is you don't need to know how to drive with it as you shouldn't need it in normal circumstances - I believe it does say you may need to turn it off in snow/icy conditions if you cannot get moving.

Didn't turn mine off once last winter, if you find you're not able to move off, or are slipping a lot, then turn it off - otherwise keep it on as I'm sure it will provide some assistance if you misjudge a situation.

With esp on, just let the car manage it unless you start to head towards a stall situation - ESP off drive as you would in a car with no ESP

Actually I think it's a LiPo (lithium polymer) battery which is cheaper and not as good as Li-Ion. I can't remember the exact differences but I think one of them is that Li-Ion can be charged more often without deteriorating.
 


I don't think its a true LiPo pack. If you read the Wikipedia article on the subject there seems to be two types. The type with a dry polymer electrolyte (LiPo), and the type in a flexible polymer casing/pouch with a liquid or gelled electrolyte. The latter being no different to Li-ion packs.

The general manufacture of Möbius cameras may mean that sub par batteries have been used - unfortunately I don't think you'll find a better battery to fit the form factor and case of the camera. If you want to extend it further, you could investigate using a USB power bank as an extended battery.

Dual mass flywheel (wait that's three words)... Brake fluid?

I'll add ya if its ok - no one to really play with! Bit of a crap driver, and I consider myself a fair shooter for not shooting team mates, but I'm sure I'll be useful somehow!

Reformat your SD card and check it for errors. I've occasionally had errors on the card and doing this has stopped them.

No. It means the relay contacts will withstand having 12V @ 30A being run through them.

 

The coil will take 200~mA at 12V.




#477269 Whats Anti-Stall

Posted by Micro on 17 April 2015 - 04:25 PM

Do you mean when it starts to judder and revs increase?

 

The car will increase throttle if rpm drops below idle, which is what I take to mean "anti-stall".

I've just had a glance over the Passenger junction box diagram.  I can see that Fuse 42 is (rear view camera) 7.5A, basically I have everything as optional extra's on my Titanium, to pretty much match the spec of a Titanium X.  But I don't have a rear view camera, meaning would it be ideal to run my Dashcam from this fuse slot?  Rather than piggyback from the rear wiper fuse 6?

 

Sorry mate I think i've got the wrong end of the stick! I was under the impression that you were going to tap into one of the motor wires, rather than the fuse.

 

If the fuse is ignition switched, then go for it - shouldn't be a problem. The issue with empty fuse places is that they may not have the metal contacts inside them (None of my empty spaces have).

My cameras generally get left in situ - to change settings with the app you need to connect your camera to a PC so it needs to be removable.

The sticky mount (not suction) makes the camera a bit shorter.

I'm not too fussed, as I have a set of pry tools.  Plus I had a visual look in the car earlier, just to map out (in my head) where i'm going to run the wire.  It's going to be an easy job, and can't wait to crack on with it.


Aah the pic didn't show up earlier.

I know I've seen one with a massive block on the end nearest the USB end (meaning you had to hide it in the a pillar) - yours doesn't seem so bad and its on the hard connection end.

Ordered!  -_-
 
(Will be ordering all the other bits too: Windscreen holder, Hard-wire USB lead and Mini piggyback)


If you can get the small style hardwire lead they're a bit easier to stuff away inside trim than the big bulky ones.
