Nextbase hard wire dashcam

Postby danny81bby » Wed Apr 12, 2017 4:14 pm

Hi
I'm new to this forum and also new to owning a bmw. I've recently bought a 2016 120d m sport and i want to hard wire a dashcam in to it. I've noticed that the fuse box is in the boot with the battery so it looks like a massive job to do. Has anyone ever done this and is it as big a job as I'm thinking?

Thank you

Danny

Welcome mate. I'm sure it's just a case of extending the power cable to reach the fusebox and adding a spade connector to the end of it so that it can be plugged into the fuse box.
Alternatively you can wire it into the 12v or the switched live from the stereo

Cheers pal. I've since found another 12v supply (cig lighter) in the passenger footwell so ill just plug it in there so its an easier cable run

I was about to mention, the newer BMWs have (well the 1 series at least) a handy 12v supply under the glove box!
