Used 'add a fuse' circuits plugged into fuse spots 7 (switched) and 64 (constant) as per the OP's instructions but no luck.

Anyone have any ideas?
I found that 64 and 5 did not work for me. Ended up changing to 68 and 7 - from memory - might have stuck with 5. I tried a few combos and don't recall exactly which one I ended up using. I do remember that one of the fuses I used was NOT empty

I'm also using the "add a fuse" circuits...

Great, thanks mate, I'll give it another go, can you recall what amp fuses you added in the 'add a fuse' for the Blackvue?

So my friend convinced me the other day to get a dash cam for my car. I've seen the videos before on youtube (Russian ones are the best) and thought it might be pretty useful. I settled on the Black Vue DR400G-HD made by a Korean company. Without going to much into it, here's some of the key features:

1080P recording
GPS position recording
3 axis motion sensor to detect large movements such as accidents
Parking mode (turns on to record when it detects movement in front of it)
Continuous recording onto micro sd card.

I also purchased the power controller (black magic) which allows you to leave the camera in parking mode until the car battery voltage falls to a certain state and shuts off so that it doesn't drain the battery.

I followed hardwire guides found on this forum for the V1. This method uses the fuse box hidden behind the glove box. For this install, a constant 12V and a switched 12V line was needed. To connect to the fuse box, you can use mini blade fuse taps (I found some 10A $7 ones from Jaycar). The power controller was installed inside the glove box and the power cable run through the A pillar into the headliner and along the rear view mirror casing into the dashcam.

The HARDEST part would be finding an empty fuse that's the right amperage

Needless to say, I spent the good part of an hour testing every empty fuse slot I could reach through the tiny gap. So here they are:

Constant 12V: No. 2,3,7,64,68,56 I ended up using 64
Switched 12V: 5, 7(this one is not empty so I used 5)

And.... pictures of the install:


Pulling the wire through to the glove box



Make sure you run this AROUND your airbag and hold it down with the included cable holders. You don't want to restrict the movement of the airbag in the event of a deployment.



Behind the glove box, a small hole to work with (esp with big hands like mine)



The constant 12V fuse tap connected



Ground wire connected to this bolt conveniently located in that area



Power controller mounted inside glove box



Wire held down onto the rear view mirror casing for clean look



From inside the car



From the front



I'm quite happy with the image quality and the features are awesome. Now I can have some piece of mind when parking my car. If you are thinking of getting the same one, note there is a version 2 so get that one (didn't do enough research )

Have you figured out how to remove the head light sensor alert that pops up at night? so annoying! because fo the front camera blocking the sensor

Used this thread to install mine today. Only issue was that fuse 5 on my car seemed to be live all the time. Fuse 7 seemed fine though so used this with a piggyback device.

It is a UK car though, so perhaps that why.

I actually haven't had that problem Ian.... Got any pics of how/where your camera is mounted? Could it be differences between the E82 and E9x?

I've mounted mine at the top of the winscreen to the left of the rear view mirror to avoid any issues with the hi beam assist sensor, also just had the top of the winscreen tinted to help hide where the camera sticks on the screen.

It doesn't look like the OP has the HBA sensor hence why no issues with the camera position:

Just remove the screw from behind the airbag cover plate and then pull the panel up not out. There are 2 upside down U shaped clips that hold in place. Just need to apply a bit of horizontal pressure when refitting to make sure it locates properly, took me a couple of attempts to get the top clip in.

Do you guys know which side is the hot side of the fuse port? I used a multimeter with a thin wire and tested both sides and can not get continuity. For ground I'm using that bolt. I hooked it up to slot 64 with 5A fuse for the battery power wire to the power magic pro and it works.

I'm liking the 650 myself. Would love front and rear. Not sure on if power magic pro required though. Would prefer battery to turn itself off at a certain voltage Ala Volphreaks Lithium Ion. Saves stuffing about with wiring

I'm looking at getting the bang for buck alternative, G1W-C $55 USD
It has a capacitor for those high heat Melbourne days!

Anyone got any idea how to hardwire it and hide the cables though?

Group buy on the batteries or the BlackVue DR600/650/750? Li-Ion VPH750/VPH900 might be a bit expensive for peoples tastes. Even mine.

Would be nice to know if the newer models have the "power magic pro" built in.
