    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...
  2. G30 (2017 - Current)
    UPDATE: Using the Technical docs I was able to determine the G30 goes into full sleep after 10 minutes of no user activity. Tapped back into the homelink fuse, locked up the car, put the remote key away, and timed how long until the car went asleep. Roughly 6 minutes on three different tests...

    After some trial and error I finally managed to remove the mirror surround to complete a hardwire for a V1 and Dashcam. The mirror surround cover is in 3 pieces that clip together: To remove, start with the top piece, then middle, and last is the bottom piece. The clips are a pain in the a**...

    Anyone been able to get the rear view mirror light assembly off on a 2014 M6 GC to hardwire a radar detector like a Valentine? It's doesn't seem the same as some videos I've seen on the M5. Thanks for any help removing this panel!!!
  7. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi guys, I just posted a video here that shows how to hardwire (using the V1 hardwire kit) the radar detector in an F10 M5. I used green wire with the brown stripe on it to tap into. It was hard to access the ground bolt, but with a swivel accessory it is possible. I referenced this guide for...

    I'm hardwiring my beltronics radar detector to my 2007 x3 this evening and had a couple questions. 1. Does anyone know if I can use an escort hardwire kit a friend bought online with my beltronics radar? It seems to be the same set up but I haven't found clarification yet. If so, that's great...

    Hello! Right from the start I have to say that I have never posted a tutorial on something like this, so don't be too hard on me!!! I am sure there are better or even simpler ways to do this but this method worked for me. I did make a minor mistake which I will point out but overall it was...

    In case anyone wants to try a similar install, here's a blog I wrote on how I hardwired my radar detector into my 335i coupe's fusebox safely and reversibly (and cheaply and easily): http://www.pearsonfaces.com/fpsurgeon/2009/09/bmw-radar-detector-hardwire.html

    Hello to all, this forum was great for helping me to sort out the purchase of my 750i so I wanted to share back. There was much discussion about installing radar detectors but I didn't want to leave it on the dash in plain view. I managed to find way to install the valentine up to the right of...
