Hi,

I'm planning to hardwire my Viofo A119 dashcam (as it came with a hardwire kit) and hoping to put the adaptor in the dome light housing.

Does anyone have a wiring diagram that shows the dome light wiring? I had a poke around the dome light connector (both side pictured below) with a meter at lunchtime but it was somewhat inconclusive...... I found a permanent 12V but couldn't find an additional feed that was alive with the ignition....

Anyone else done this?

Regards,

Andrew

This means absolutely nothing to me, but the manual does include this diagram:

wiring.thumb.jpg.ec15b3f6e098cae9c0115ec1de92fe0a.jpg

 

It calls it the R5 Overhead Junction Box, which I assume is what you are after?

Unfortunately, the entire diagram is too big to fit on one screen, but if you need the whole thing, you can message me and I will send it to you.

Thanks for the wiring diagram! That's exactly the area I was seeking.

It actually looks like I'm going to be out of luck finding a switched 12V feed in that area as all the dome light functions are active whether the ignition is on or off, I'll probably end up running a single feed wire down the left hand A pillar to the footwell fusebox.

Regards,

Andrew

      I am thinking about getting a dashcam for my IS250 (3rd gen) but am amazed at the variety am finding it difficult to settle on a particular make/model. I am looking for a mid-range model (£60 - 120 but not fixed on this) that does not need to be hard-wired in. However, I don't like the idea of a lead dangling down so, ideally, would like one that runs just on an internal re-chargeable battery. That said, it needs to be easily and quickly removed from its mounting point both for re-charging and for security when the car is not in use. If a stand-alone model is not available, then I would like it to be connected to the USB socket rather than cigarette lighter one. Any recommendations would be welcomed. Similar posts by others in this forum have included recommendations but the models seem to be no longer available.

      Hi guys,

      I'm looking into getting a dash cam and I have a few questions.

      1) Are there any dash cams people recommend? I don't care about screens - all i need to know is that it's turned on but I understand most models come with screens now.

      2) I have searched for battery powered dash cams, my ideal was to have one I could charge every night but it seems they don't exist. So i have accepted that I'll need to hardwire. Where is the fusebox in the CT? Is to the fusebox the easiest method to hardwire? Any tips?

      3) Does anybody have any experience in hardwiring anything and how to make wires as hidden as possible (from the mirror)?

      4) Are there any issues I should be concerned with hardwiring in terms of draining batteries etc?

      Thanks everyone.

      Many thanks, Ben

      Hi, Has anyone hard wired a dash cam mounted by rear view mirror on windscreen?
      Maybe get a feed from interior lights by rear view mirror?
