- Installation easy but not specific on wiring- August 10, 2018
The installation was easy even with very generalized instructions. The instructions don’t say where to attach each wire. At first I didn’t see any labeling on the red and yellow wires, but on the fuse holder for the red wire it says constant 12v. So I attached the red wire to a constant power source and the yellow to an ignition on power source. The park mode on the dash cam wouldn’t work with this hook up. Then I reinspected my wiring and saw a small black band on the red and yellow wires with a microscopic font saying the red was for ignition and the yellow for constant power. After switching the wires, the dash cam worked perfectlyYes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Works great but- June 18, 2019
The hardwiring cable works great does what its suppose to do BUT The cable is to short i assume its because it can be wired to the inside fuse box which it would reach with no problem but i have a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan and it doesnât have a fuse box I actually wired it to the cigarette Ports in the middle bottom part of dash there is two port one that works with ignition and one that works always with battery So it was easy enough to wire but i had to extend the wire about two feet to reach the middle part of van Other then that parking mode is awesome :-)

- A clutter-free streamlined install- September 30, 2018
I'd recommend this if you're short on cigarette lighter ports, or simply don't want the wire to power the unit to be showing. Install was essentially as easy as connecting the positive (red), accessory (yellow) and ground (black) to the same wires your stereo uses. The install guide recommends hooking up these wires to fuses in the fuse box, but I don't ever see that as being super straightforward, or easy. So I opted for the aforementioned method. I have the wire routed up the A pillar alongside the window, and up above the headliner in my Ford Probe. Very happy with the finished result.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Simple Product, Does Its Job. Quality Harness- July 21, 2021
This worked great on our Q800 Pro installation. Had no problems with it. Wires are decent quality, though I am not a fan of the barrel style fuse holders as they add bulk to the harness. Regardless, I was able to fairly easily route the harness from the rear view mirror of our 2015 BMW X5 to the necessary fuses to tap. Simple product that does its job. Better if you can get it on sale like we did.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Unlocks A Whole Level Of Features For Your DashCam- September 21, 2016
Honestly this should have been included in the packaging for most of ThinkWare's Dash Cams but I can understand that some people would not use Parking Modes or they may feel that the installation of this is too involved. This is a great 'Accessory' that really differentiates what a premium dash cam can do versus a budget one. The Hardwiring Kit allows the dash cam to know when you're actually operating the vehicle or when the vehicle is turned off allowing the dash cam to actually switch modes to best suit the situation. Not only that but it allows you to free up a 12V outlet in your vehicle so you may charge/use other devices. The wires are of decent quality and I would highly recommend using a 'Add A Fuse Tap' to make installation cleaner and easier.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
