attach the front camera to the windshield behind the rear-viewer mirror.

3

Optional GPS receiver: Plug in the GPS receiver and attach it in a corner of the windshield. Tuck the cable into the windshield trim

 

using the pry tool.

the lens slightly downwards (≈10°

 

below horizontal), so as to record video with a 6:4 road to background ratio.

10 Turn on the engine. The BlackVue dashcam will power up and start recording. Video files are stored on the microSD card. When the microSD card fills up, the newest video files will start to replace the oldest video files (called loop recording) – so you will always have the most recent video files.
