Idiot Proof Install.

I've purchased the F770 Thinkware 2 channel dashcam - I've used the search button & noticed it's a popular piece of kit Thumbs Up

Is there a fool proof idiots guide somewhere to help me with a hard wire install - current model 14MY L494

As always thanks in advance Bow down Thumbs Up 14MY Autobiography Dynamic - SDV6 - Fuji White Smile

Andy - thanks for the quick reply - is your front cam to the drivers side of the rear mirror - I read it was a pain to remove - access it in that position but I don't seem to have that issue Rolling Eyes 14MY Autobiography Dynamic - SDV6 - Fuji White Smile

Peachy,

Although a RRS1 I can't see RRS2 will be much different, I experimented with trying camera either side of mirror and found if fitted on passengers side with the camera lens being on the end of the unit and curvature of the screen, it put the lens way off centre of the vehicle, and although not a lot of use it made it virtually impossible to align the Lane Departure feature of the camera. In addition the power and rear camera leads are the lens end of the unit and it didn't really make a tidy install to me. Although not the perfect position it is certainly more easily accessible and better fitted behind the mirror on the drivers side.

Cheers
Col

I might be being a bit thick here, but how does the lane-departure feature know that you haven't deliberately changed lane? Does the warning go off quite a lot? "I am never content until I have constructed a model of the subject I am studying. If I succeed in making one, I understand; otherwise I do not" - Lord Kelvin

It's a bit basic really, simply picks up white line markings so every time you change lanes it just beeps at you a lot, which is why I have mine disabled. Laughing I think the general idea is to let you know if you start to wander across the white line a bit.

2-4. Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
Audible warning notifies the driver in real time when the vehicle is leaving its lane. This warning is only enabled
when the vehicle is traveling above 50km/h (approx 30mph)
* Default setting : 80km/h (approx 50mph)

2-5. Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS)
Audible warning notifies the driver in real time to avoid possible rear-end collision when the vehicle is ahead
is slowing or stopped. The warning is only enabled when the vehicle is traveling above 30km/h (approx 20
mph)

 LDWS Setting
1. Verify that the GPS is connected by checking for the green light on GPS LED.
2. Enable LDWS feature by selecting "Dashcam Settings > Road safety settings
> LDWS" on the Thinkware Dash Cam Mobile Viewer.

Cheers
Col

Thanks. I think I'd quickly tire of that. "I am never content until I have constructed a model of the subject I am studying. If I succeed in making one, I understand; otherwise I do not" - Lord Kelvin
