    Default Just bought a new dashcam mirror

    I sold my grand vitatra which i had a nice kenwood head unit installed in.

    The upside of this was i fitted a reversing camera and had a nice big screen now i have the grand scenic i don't have that option.
    So i purchased a Wolfbox G840s mirror dashcam with reverse camera from amazon.

    I have yet to install it but it looks a cracking bit of kit.
    Rear camera to be fitted either outside or inside which adds guide lines when put into reverse and records as a rear dashcam.
    Front facing dashcam built in to the mirror and a free SD card.

    I emailed wolfbox and they sent me a free hardwire kit too.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/WOLFBOX-Mir...s%2C511&sr=8-4

    Ill add some footage when i have installed it

    EDIT……

    Fitted this today and it’s pretty good apart from one gripe.
    The image of the rear camera seems to zoomed in.

    it’s almost as if I need to zoom out a bit to show the full view?
    I will add some of the footage once I have been out and about but overall I would give it 8/10 so far.
    Fitting was simple enough with a hardwire kit but in a Renault not so much.

    The shit fuse box meant I couldn’t use the piggyback fuses as they don’t fit into the gap.
    So I had to remove the piggybacks and solder Into the radio harness.
    Then to top it off there’s no acc supply on the radio at all!
    so I had to split the hardwire loom and pull out the acc cable and hard wire that into the fuse box.
    Sounds simple but no…..

    our car you have to remove the whole glove box to access the fuse box. Ffs.
    Ran the rear view cam cable down the roof lining and into the grommet and through the tubing into the boot lid.
    removed the trims fitted camera and refit trims.
    Now the camera is mounted on the boot lid and nice and secure.

    I was wondering how you where getting with it and itlooks like you did a good job mate..
    Is the split view just when you are reversing?
    It does look a bit zoomed in but I guess its very different to what you are used too.
    It looks kind of fish eyed in the pics, Is that the case?

    I have it set on dual view but you can set whatever view you like.
    front or back only or dual cam.

    when you stick it in reverse you get rear cam only and it adds guide lines for parking.
    the fish eye effect seems to be only on dual cam mode to fit everything in the picture.

    Got a busy weekend lined up but will pull the card and upload some video asap.
