Hi guys

Im planning to get a blackvue dr650 and hardwire it using a power magic pro. Has anyone installed something similar and tell me if I can install the power magic pro in the glovebox of a 2006 is250. Im looking for a hidden install.

you sure you don't want a FineVu CR500.

I have a brand new one in Sydney I'd be happy to do a mean deal on.

I can supply the hardwire kit too.

I installed a Blackvue DR650 in IS300 3 wires if you get the power box. On the JCE10 I used add-a-circuits from Navara (Autobarn) Just get yourself a test light and look for constant and acc power and your set.

Here's footage of how the front looks like. It needs a polarizing filter otherwise you get dash reflections

I had mine installed under the center console wired to the cigarette lighter. (didn't do it myself). It's neat and completely hidden.

Hi Chris,

Yes, I can still do you a deal on the CR500HD

Drop me a PM and I'll see what I can do on the pricing for you.

You want just the CR500? Or you need any accessories as well?

You can find IGN, 12V Constant and Ground in the overhead console connector. I wired my own low voltage disconnect up there. This will save you running the wires down the pillar of the car.

Hey Guys & Girls,


Need your help to hardwire my dashcam in my car.


I have got the hardwire kit but just want to confirm before i do anything:




Will be getting:


Double Mini Blade Fuse Socket Wire Tap



To my understanding I will need to put the red wire from the hardwire kit into the blue end of the Double Mini Blade Fuse Socket Wire Tap and crimp it then find a constant on fuse so i can use the motion detection function of my Mini 0806 dashcam???


TIA

Hi rakddon,

That is correct, however it may be easier to wire directly to the overhead console / dome lamp, like motivetronics has suggested,

Than running a wire down the front pillar trim (Airbags fitted), which the trim cannot be easily removed.

(Not without cutting and replacing a clip).

Constant power, ignition and ground are all available on one big @$$ plug.

Plus this method makes it easy peasy to get the wire down through the headlining trim to the camera itself.

Wire colours you will need to use are

Light blue (Pin 5) battery power

White with black stripe (Pin 1) Ground

Green (Pin 27) Ignition Power (optional, use only if you want the cam powered up with the ignition on)

I hope this helps

Thanks for that.

I believe you are talking about the overhead compartment where the lights are in the middle or sunroof switch is?

How would I connect the wires as i do not want to strip them.

I agree this would be easier though, just trying to get my head around it that's all.

If anyone wanted to know and has the same hardwire kit as above all you need to do is wrap the red wire around the active fuse and the black wire under a bolt to ground it.

very simple to do and your car battery wont drain out as the hardwire kit is a in-built power box.
