Dashcam Installation


Recommended Posts

I am going to install a Dashcam - Blackvue DR500GW/HD - in my RAV4 2011.

For that purpose I need to connect 2 wires to the fusebox:

1) Yellow wire is connected to a permanent positive12 volt supply.

2) White wire is connected to a switched positive 12 volt supply, a supply that comes on when you turn on the ignition key
and goes off when you take it out.

To which fusebox & fuse should I connect these wires without jeopardize the safety of the car.

Hi zkab,Think I would go with the easy option yellow to Battery with inline fuse and white to the back of the ciggie lighter

Thanks for your answer.

Does that mean I have to cut the wire to the ciggie lighter and connect white there ?

I'm going to go for a far cheaper option and the reviews are good (that I have found).

Unlike the Blackvue, I want a in car dvr which is small enough to install and forget and not have to remove it from the car. For a extra £20, there is a hard wire kit so that it does not take up one a cigarette light socket.

I've just not got off my butt and bought one yet !!!
