Hi

Thanks for the links however I read those, nothing to suggest how to hardwire the piggyback kit or which fuse to use for permanent power to the Dashcam? I require constant power to the Dashcam hence buying the piggyback hardwire kit?

Thanks for the replies so far.

Hi Mike22,

Pacemaker1000 mentioned that he hard wired into the fusebox on 'fuse 60' (caveat - assuming fuse numbers have not changed over model years).

Link to post [Evoque Halogen to LED conversion - complete!] there's also another link in the thread to [Car Dash Cam / Dashboard Camera], which discussed hard wiring a dashcam. JimWooly posted an excellent BlackVue DR550GW-2CH installation 'how to' with photos (including fusebox) and Restyler followed this up with his A118 installation photos.

Hope this helps.

Trev

open up the secret place where the manual is there's a screw ... undo that to put the earth tag onto.... and you want the cigarette lighter fuse... which is number whatever but is in the manual



update have looked for you ..... fuse 52 which is easy to get to and the wire leads off nicely ....


and it works switches off when car is locked and switches on min I open the door ;)

ok I know photo's are great and meant to document it all but it was cold out there.... but I did remember to take this one that if you zoom in does show the numbers of the fuses....




Pic isn't that clear as I had to shrink it.... but if it helps and you want to see the numbers I can email you it .... sorry should have taken more ....

which should work if you have a mini USB 5 volt camera..... works on mine anyway :)

Excellent, thanks Angel.
Mines all tucked in nice but it may be worth me hardwiring then if it's that easy and free up my cig lighter socket.....not that I use it for anything else, but have to agree, once wired to fuse box, can be forgotten about.
Thanks for photo ......ok ok.....off to find the thanks button

I have a new Dash Cam with extended view angles. It uses the 12V socket.

Would you know if the 12v on the evoque, cuts power when the car is turned off? ( to prevent battery drain). How long until it stops providing power?
