I bought a Nextbase and fitted it myself to my 2014 Auris at the time and much cheaper. Yes it’s not hard wired in but enough cable to hide the wire around the windscreen and door and plug into 12v. However if you need the 12v for something else then consider hard wire as Battery on camera does not last long once disconnected

Hi. I to purchased a Nextbase from eBay brand new complete with a hard wire fitting kit. I fitted myself into the fuse box behind the glove box and concealed the wiring behind the doortrim rubber. It was a really easy straight forward job taking approx 15 to 20 minutes. Total cost £59.99.

You can buy a longer cable from eBay for about £1.50. But I just put a cheapo USB extender cable onto mine and ran it under the floor mats so that it now runs off the rear seat 12v socket instead of the dashboard socket. Mine's a Nextbase 412GW, BTW - about £95.

Running the cable around the top of the windscreen is no bother at all - it slips invisibly under the headlining, and then across the door pillar and downward under the rubber seal. The cable can sag a bit in the place where it crosses the A pillar, but a microscopic little bit of white blu-tack will hold it nicely.

Thanks for the replies, will go with getting a nextbase, they have the 212g on special offer black friday for £59.

Hi,

Your comment caught my eye, as had been looking at these cameras, but the 212G seems a bit odd as its not clearly shown on Nextbases main screen, onle the 212, so I just used the online chat, you might find helpful,   the GPS /speed is a god extra feature to have.

Good point countrylad about running to rear 12v. Moved mine to my Rav 4 and might actually consider moving it to the rear 12v. Absolutely agree the wire is really easy to hide, I ran mine around windscreen, around the passenger door seal and under the trim to the socket. My camera is a nextbase 212g lite, not sure what the difference is between 212g, maybe just no gps but works a treat
