Too many ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I have the av output going to the tv-in of my center console. The image appears to have some noise. Would a ground-loop isolator help with this? I've used them for audio but never tried with video, especially since it's not common to see one that supports three-channel (stereo+video).
Cable type and quality might have an impact on the end result, cable routing may have an influence on the result also

I found a more secure and tidy way to install the DR main unit. I have run the cables underneath the boot floor, and mounted the main unit within a cubby hole with door access. The DualLock sticks really well to the fabric liner.

Notice how the cabling with the DR mounted to the left rear vent pane is slightly more awkward than on the right door above.
This could be alleviated if the non-sided USB-C was used instead of the old mini-USB plugs and sockets, but no huge deal.

Now must go for a drive and replay footage to fine tune the position of the dashcams and angulation of the lenses.

I wonder why I did not come up with this idea four years ago with the SGZC12RC?
It has slightly inferior low light video, but for side cameras, we don't need that much low light quality anyway.
I remember four years ago, I kept on trying to mount the RC on the moving [open/close] rear window square glass pane, and this led to thinking about suction cups, hence Vicovation and Dod dashcams that were available OEM with suction cups.
Side dashcams should have been mounted on the rear vent pane glass all along, because these panes are fixed, and cabling to the rear door's vertical edge is easy.

Your garage floor has wood laminate flooring? I suddenly feel like a second-class citizen (just kidding!). That looks really sharp! How does it hold up to hot tires?

I have to say I don’t think I’ve ever done a burnout in my garage. I need a bigger garage :LOL:
