#474906 Being Honest Is An Expensive Thing, It Appears...

Insurance is a major ripoff. I understand your trouble. A friend of mine got his insurance canceled because he told them he had a water fire extinguisher in his van. Apparently a bottle of water isn't covered

Pics of my current on going rear set up. Few things need sorting. need to remove my foc sticker sadly.

Cable is held on with a bit of tape temporary this is stop the cable from twisting the cam when the boot lid is closed, the tape is temporary until I am fully satisfied with the setup then I will use some sort of glue that isn't permanent or visible.

Unfortunately there is some slight vibration going on, not enough to bother me but is isn't vibration free like my front cam

James I have taken this prayer from pulp fiction for your use upon the lost souls you call friends.

Read this to them every time they say vauxhall, think vauxhall, breath vauxhall or even look at the site of a vauxhall

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil vauxhall drivers. Blessed is he, who in the name of ford owners and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children"

Feel free to leave out the part where you shoot them in the back of the head with a western although I would recommend this for everyone safety


#457665 Ford Focus Mk2 2007 Main Beam Problem

This may sound daft but have you double checked all connections going to the headlamp and that bulbs are seated corrected and correct type use? Changing your bulb shouldn't have caused so much trouble.

Be careful when/if swapping relays, they can be wired differently you can see this from the wiring diagram on the side of each relay

Good call on that yeah i did notice that going through the updated instructions. Curious to hear about the performance of the new battery from anyone who's got one. The above link i posted also comes with an adaptor, any genuine card should come with an adaptor as standard but that is most definitely a good card to go for




#457638 Help Hard-Wiring Dashcam

Posted by mixmasterlooney on 22 February 2015 - 09:57 PM

2-3A is ideal, no lower no higher, The extension cables are rated at 3A, Standard usb takes 500-1000mAh This is low Amps for usb and this sort is not enough to charge some larger smart phones or devices that require 2mAh.

 

I think your Tech initially connected the camera fuse in slot 1 possibly blowing it. The primary fuse, the one that was removed to plug in the piggy back must go into slot 1 and the cam fuse go into slot 2

After my initial purchase of the mobius in January 2014 i have been running it for one entire year throughout our roasting summer and snowy winter without any problems at all. The only negative experience i had with it was my incompatible memory card, that has been working since a firmware update that is now very old (Firmware 1.77) other than that things have been problem free.

 

Now i have finally gotten around to setting up my second mobius dashcam for rear view use, after putting it alongside my original mobius i have noticed some slight external body difference, nothing major.

Slightly different shape LED on the top and some sort of indent possible mic reposition.

 

Updated my second mobius to Firmware 2.33 original cam still running 1.77, i am impressed with all the new features that comes with firmware 2.33, webcam options and varies frame rate changes different to the standard 29/30 etc.

 

If anyone comes across the SD card issue i initially had i strongly recommend this SD card

Brought to us by Ben, i now have one for my second cam and it works great

 

For £50 including a mount, delivered, i highly recommend the mobius has a proper high quality camera

I think your right as I think k distributors are just part of the carburettor system?


Also modern cars all have variable valve timing that's electronic controlled and distributors are mechanical and fixed in sync with engine rpm. That was a really good one I think, clever
