Dashcam Connector

Post by Pirots » Sat Nov 30, 2019 6:57 pm

Collecting the car on Tuesday so I have ordered a 32gb Blackvue 750s 2ch. I was looking at the 900 but I preferred the night view on the 750 and got the 750 for under £300.

I have been looking at which way to connect it. Use the OBD port connector or get the magic pro and use empty fuses 86 and 12. The OBD connector looks like the easy solution? Anyone have theirs connected with this?

I will be looking at locating the camera as far away from the mirror as poss.

I have the same dashcam, sadly it was installed by the seller so i haven't checked if fuse or OBD. However the magic pro is located on the side panel that's visible when you open the passenger door, where the airbag deactivation knob is located. That makes me feel the cables are routed towards the fuse box.

I know the same seller installed it via fuse on my Mazda 3

If I am correct? The OBD replaces the Magic Pro.
