I bought the three wire accessory wiring kit. Give you a 12v +, 12v accessory, and ground. Gonna run the wires along the head liner. The accessory wiring will go down to the fuse box and tap in there. The rear camera I am gonna run along the headliner to the back. Use the factory loom for the Third brake light to feed the wire to the camera

That's what I got my wife. It's working well. We'll see if it holds up to summer heat..

I was driving along to drop my kids off at daycare, drove through what I saw as a green light which became yellow as I approached the light, when suddenly a wild Hyundai appeared! Very minimal damage was done to the cars (side mirrors knocked together, basically). She called the cops and her husband, who both upon seeing the dashcam footage immediately took my side.

Pay attention to other drivers!

She said I ran a red - YouTube
I know, old history here

I watched it several times and I saw that you did not attempt to slow with yellow warning of a soon to be red light, and even as the blue car came out and you had time to slow and not pass, you instead got mad and laid on the horn and ran off right side of road to defiantly pass. I'd have wrote you both, the other driver for failure to yield and you for just plain reckless driving (and let the judge reduce your's to improper driving).

Nothing personal, just how I see it.
