My dealer Is going to un-install my Blackvue DR650S 1 CH from my Auris and fit it in the new C-HR, has anyone else already done this as i am not sure of the best place to position it. I don't want to position its under the all seeing safety until in the middle of the wind screen, which would be ideal but in the manual it warns against it?

regards

I can understand why fitting it next to the windscreen safety sensor could be a problem as that Dashcam has a wifi transmitter to connect to the cloud built into it. Mind you if you don't use that feature I believe you can turn it off.

I'm putting mine where the tax disc used to go- near the bottom left of windscreen. I have also decided not to do a hardwire but run the cable from the 12v under the front passenger seat and up beside the door, using Velcro to fix it. I have a 12v adaptor that I'll leave in the storage box so that I can also run the cable from my Garmin satnav- which sits on the dash a bit to the right of centre of the windscreen. I deliberately chose the CHR without the Satnav option (Icon) as I like my Garmin and didn't feel the need for the capital outlay and ongoing costs of updates for something I'd only need on an occasional basis.

Haven't got a dashcam..So wouldn't know where to stick it...
And didn't get the "navigation" either not gonna pay an extra almost €800 for something like that. Not saying it isn't worth it but I used to use TomTom on my IPhone for navigation and got me everywhere I wanten to go and even when on foot...
Recently got the SYGIC NAV APP WITH FREE LIFETIME MAP UPDATE and traffic warming .
Even has a dashcam function in it and headup display....
And guess this app will go on a Samsung phone + a few GB of music an extra simcard ,connect it with the mirrorlink app and
Off we go...🌏

First wait till you have you Car and see if mirrorlink works becourse you need another Sygic version.
