When I was talking to the guy in the service department at my local dealers about a dash cam I was advised that with all the technology around the windscreen not to have one - in fact they have been known to cause problems with the electrics stopping working.

Also I would be very reluctant to have anything anywhere near the windscreen until the "cracked windscreen" issue is totally resolved.

I have one on the dashboard with the wire Velcro' d down the passenger door and into the 12v cubby box. Works fine.

I have one mounted on the front screen, as long as it's not on the chequered part of the screen it's fine. It has never interfered with anything on the car. My screen has been replaced but the crack was no where near the camera.

Mine operates with a dash cam, no problems. Would not want to be without one. In the GT86 I have front and rear facing cams. Other road users following tend to keep a more respectful distance now. Would fit rear facing in the C-HR too, but I suspect the lifting tailgate may cause issues.

Any reason for this? I think that's where I've installed mine!! The only problem I get is the field of vision, to the near side, is slightly impaired due to the big black box already on the screen. I'll take some pictures of mine and upload them tomorrow.

I was told it may interfere with the RSA reader which is in the black box you mentioned

I enquirer above having a dash cam hard wired into the car electrics using a manufacturers kit and was told that this may/could, invalidate the Toyota warranty in case of any claim that could be linked to the installation

Be careful what you do. My ecu burnt out and they phoned me up all super polite and friendly before telling me about the ecu asking where my dash cam had gone and how id powered it. He was digging for things to blame the ecu failure on so they could charge me. One said I bet the [email protected] has jumped it(i dont own jump leads).



I have a motorola one that runs directly off the usb port nicely and for an hour while in car parks.

I had this problem on the bmw, I am pro dash cam but you do have to look at the positioning carefully. Mine wasn't clearly obstructing any sensors yet it still made the high beam assist malfunction.
