Would it be better on the other side? The wire could hide behind the mirror.Installed the BlackVue DR900S into my Volvo XC60 on the weekend using a magic pro hardwire kit. Ended up taping the centre console 12V for ACC and the passenger seat electronic lumbar support for BATT (my vehicle is not equipped with this option but still has the fuse, the power seats always have power).
Crappy thing about the city safety shroud is that it makes hiding the wires a bit hard on a RHD vehicle. tucked them as good as I could. Could have made it a bit better if I moved the camera further to the left, however it became more of a sight-line issue.
Still working on the back camera the wire is 98% concealed but need to wait for warmer temperatures before I start pulling apart the back hatch and rest of the plastic mouldings. Will post a picture once thats complete.

That turned out really nice! Did you have to remove all the trim to get the wire through the grommet?Cleaned up the rear installation. Ran the wire through the factory hatch grommet and then down. Nice and clean!
Looks great! The shroud looks significantly smaller on the V60 vs the XC60.I bought a BlendMount to mount a BlackVue DR750S-2CH from the mirror. The BlendMount was pricey but the sensor shroud makes it difficult to position anything…the mount works well and I think it’s less conspicuous. Thanks to user mcmanus got some tips to install the rear camera through the factory grommets, cheers!
I haven't really figured it out either, but I know some people will have one that has a really good night time sensor and one that excels during the day. I'd rather have a happy medium of having one that does both decently well.Classic mount for my Viofo A119
I wonder why here are so many people having two cameras or more filming in the same direction, what's the exact reason for that?
