Thanks for all the replies guys. :biggrin:

Sounds a bit scary to me getting into the roof, down the A frame etc etc. :lol:

I guess I could get a pro to do it and make a neat job as don't think I would be too happy at having a go.

Dan, you are quick to pop up with these 'exclusive offers' but very elusive when you are asked a simple question?


Hi,

I try to respond to all queries - if I have missed a question I do apologise. If you would like to PM me I can certainly try and help in any way possible.

Thanks

Apart from the day you wake up and forget to switch it on or the fuse goes and sods law says thats when it will happen :bigcry:

I think they are great, but as always insurance will find a way to get out of paying up

As for Adrian Flux I am still awaiting a call back after speaking to an adviser from last Oct!


Hi,

If you require a call back please feel free to PM me your details and I can organise this.

Thanks

Hi,
Just to let you know that a number of our insurance schemes offer discounts for a wide range of approved in-car cameras.

Dan.

and if the camera happens to be faulty at the time and not record the incident,
will this be an excuse for not paying out, ?.

EDIT, should read fully, before replying, :biggrin:


Hi,

The policies we sell do not endorse the camera, so there are no terms and conditions ruling out a pay out if footage is not provided. So if it is faulty and an accident occurs then there shouldn't be any issue with being paid out.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Dan.

I mount my camera on the dashboard and the wire is hidden completely and goes straight to the fusebox. :thumbs:

Hello JackDusty, I hope you are keeping well. :thumbs:

I am sorry I have just picked up on this thread. As you know I have a T30... However, I am now on my second camera, installed this one also myself and tucked the cable behind the door frame weather-seal and then pulled the cable through the headlining using the front courtesy / map light for access. Camera is mounted behind the mirror - tidy job with good coverage and clear view. Also there are no air-bags in the way on the T30 - not sure about the T31...

Light is failing now (combined with the snow) - I will post some details over the next few days.

Best wishes, John

Thanks for posting the informative file John. I notice that your windscreen does not have the 'hatched' area at the top of the screen, behind and adjacent to the rear view mirror, thus allowing you to hide the camera behind the mirror.

My T31 does not have a power point as you describe, so the only one, as far as I know, is the one by the gear lever. I dont feel comfortable about going into the fuse board and hooking up there either. So if I go ahead I think I will have to let a pro install.

Further to the comments about insurance discounts - it is that time of year for me as the Insurance is due next month. I spent the afternoon getting quotes. The range is remarkable and ranges from about £260 to an eye watering £1243! how can this be? :confused:

Hello JackDusty,

I am sorry it looks like my installation is not going to help you on your T31. At least you can see the quality of the video through a budget camera, and I do believe that the 0803 is a better camera for low light conditions - than the 0801 camera I have installed. :thumbs:

I mounted my first camera just above the instruments in the centre of the windscreen. It did not interfere with the driver's view in this location. :thumbs:

If you were to consider a self install you could investigate a piggyback fuse connector, you could use this piggy backed off say your power point fuse, without too much intrusion of your vehicle fuses. This could then be connected to a hard wired regulator/connector to reduce the power to 5volts for your camera (subject to checking the specification required for the camera).

Piggyback fuse connector...

Hard wired regulator/connector...

I hope you manage to sort something out with the project. :thumbs: :biggrin:

Best wishes, John

Has anyone had an incident recorded on camera and found it a useful barganing/evidential tool with the insurance company/police?

No - I got the camera *after* an incident where it would have been useful.

I wish I had had it at the time.

To answer my own question, guess those dramatic pictures of the plane crashing into the river and clipping a taxi on the road at the outskirts of Taipei Airport in Taiwan must have been from one of these cameras.

As well as evidential might have been quite lucrative selling to media outlets as well! :biggrin:
