Utilise piggyback wiring to connect a dashcam.


Recommended Posts

None of these options were compatible with my 70 plate CEED SW or my facelift ISG 2 22 plate sportage.

 

The second picture illustrates the surplus amount of wire on the main feed line. It is evident that I have collected and secured this excess wire using a cable tie to prevent any tangling. The green tape indicates the use of a piggybacked jumper.

 

The last picture displays a size comparison between the smallest component of the NB HW kit and the micro2, which is the required component. Observe the blades on the NextBase kit one; they exhibit noticeable differences and are not sufficiently close together.
The second one was provided by NextBase customer support promptly after contacting them via phone and was sent by first-class post the next day.

The GT Line S is compatible with the DashCam since it has a power dipping mirror. It is worth noting that DashCams typically do not use HDMI as their major power source. The available options for the connectors are Micro USB, Mini USB, or USB C, all of which include a USB A connector on the power supply side.

I have used a Dongar adapter in all of my present vehicles and would be pleased to provide my advice. In order to install a rear dash cam, you will still need to locate a power source. I managed to connect it to the power socket in the trunk and concealed the wire well, ensuring that it is not easily noticeable.
