B
Peel off the plastic film from the lens. Peel off the protective film from the doublesided tape and attach the front camera to the windshield behind the rear-view mirror.
C
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.
D
Adjust the angle of the lens by loosening the nut and rotating the front camera. We
recommend pointing the lens slightly downwards (≈10° below horizontal), so as to
record video with a 6:4 road to background ratio. After installation the camera angle
can be adjusting in real time with the LCD screen on.

E
Peel off the protective film from the double-sided tape and attach the rear camera
to the rear windshield. Adjust the angle of the lens by rotating the body of the rear
camera.
F
Connect the front camera (‘R CAM’ port) and the rear camera using the rear camera
connection cable.
G
Use the pry tool to lift the edges of the rubber window sealing and molding and tuck

To record in parking mode you must hardwire the dashcam to your car’s fuse
panel using the hardwire cable. Normal mode and event mode will also be
available while driving. Plug the hardwire cable into the DC-IN port on the front
camera. Proceed to Step I.
Alternatively, if you power the dashcam from the cigarette lighter socket you
will not be able to record in parking mode. Normal mode and event mode will only
be available while driving. Plug the power cord into the cigarette lighter socket and
the DC-IN port on the front camera. Proceed to Step L.
I
Connect the yellow [ACC] wire to a Switched fuse. Referring to your vehicle
Owner's Manual/Handbook, identify a Switched (accessory power) fuse in your
interior fuse panel. Typical examples are the cigarette lighter and car stereo fuse slots.
Remove the identified Switched fuse. Many cars come with a fuse puller tool in the
engine compartment fuse panel.
Remove the sleeve from the end of the yellow [ACC] wire, and wrap the wire around
one of the blades of the Switched fuse. Reinsert the fuse back into the fuse panel.
ACC (Yellow): Connect to Switched fuse slot
GND (Black): Connect to
ground point
B + (Red): Connect to Constant
Power fuse slot
12 BLACKVUE
J
Connect the red [B +] wire to a Constant Power fuse. Identify a Constant Power
(battery power) fuse in your fuse panel. Typical Constant Power fuses are the hazard
light (emergency lamp), tail lights and interior light fuses. If your car has a “Battery
Saver Function” please utilize the hazard light fuse.
Remove the identified Constant Power fuse. Remove the sleeve from the end of the
red [B +] wire, and wrap the wire around one of the blades of the Constant Power
fuse. Reinsert the fuse back into the fuse panel.
K
Connect the black [GND] wire to a ground point. Locate a ground point, such as
a bolt, that is directly on a bare metal part of the vehicle's frame. Secure the ground
wire to the bare metal frame (for example by securing it under the bolt).
L
Use the pry tool to lift the edges of the windshield trim/molding and tuck in the
hardwire cable.

Power cord
Turn on the engine and switch on the dashcam. 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.
Note
yy There are 3 recording modes: Normal, Event and Parking. The dashcam starts
recording in normal mode, switches to event mode when an impact is detected,
and switches to parking mode when the engine is off. A low voltage power cut-off
function protects the automotive battery from discharge.
