    Hi All, I've just received a Roav Dash Cam for Christmas as a present. I attempted to hard wire the Dash Cam into the fusebox in the engine bay. The connector I have (LINK) is all working fine. However, when I try to close the lid on the fusebox there isn't enough room as the lid catches on the...

  9. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    Installing a dashcam can seem rather daunting, but it's actually a relatively straight forward DIY project if you take your time. Modern cars, especially European cars have features which monitor battery load when the car is off and can either cut power, or throw error messages when a dashcam...

    I would like to have a dashcam in my 2014 740i. Of course I can buy one of the many on the market, but I am afraid but it will look like a clumsy addon. Did anybody find a decent solution for this question? Is using the front camera an option at all? Thx in advance for your ideas and suggestions.
