Hi all, I notice that the boot also has a cigarette power source.
Instead of paying through the nose for a front/reverse setup, can I not just buy two normal "front" dash cams and install one at the front and one at the back?
I appreciate the backs angle and profile is different so may be a pain but fairly sure most cameras have ample wiggle on their bases to get something decent. Anyone tried this? Its just I can get 2 front 1080p cams for £60 or so but a proper synced front/reverse is £200 and the reverse uses the reverse lights source which I have to play about with.
I dont really want to piss about with electricals in cars - notorious problems arise and take hours to root cause. Id rather use the official power jacks.
I know the cameras wont sync, but given most are motion sensor to turn on and record g's and lock that file segment, I assume it wouldnt be hard to get footage from both.
One other Q while I am here. The cams will take up both my power sources -I know extension ones are available to turn 1 slot into 2 (even 4!). Obviously a car battery isnt like a house socket where it can draw from the grid. Can I run my battery dry using extension slots to also charge my phone while used as a sat nav? Might also at times use a coolbox in the boot source too.
Loving the 1.6 I got. Brilliant drive so far.
This has a battery analyser so assuming it works well I guess I can set it all up and report back how well the battery handles many loads.
