How to install hardwire for Carplay to achieve 24H parking monitoring

Installing a hardwire kit by yourself does require some technical knowledge and understanding of your vehicle's electrical systems. Below are the steps to help you install a hardwire kit properly, but remember, if you're unsure about your ability to perform these steps safely, it's best to consult a professional installer.

Steps for Installing a Hardwire Kit

1.Turn Off the Vehicle Power

Before you begin, ensure the vehicle’s ignition is turned off to prevent any accidental electric currents or short circuits.

2.Select the Appropriate Fuse Slots

Avoid using fuse slots that are crucial for safety features of the vehicle, such as airbags.

Choose an ACC fuse slot that only powers on with the vehicle’s ignition. This ensures that the dashcam only operates when the vehicle is started.

3.Connect the Hardwire Kit

BAT+ (B+): Connect the BAT+ fuse tap to a constant power fuse slot. This guarantees that the dashcam can consistently receive power.

ACC: Connect the ACC fuse tap to a fuse slot that is powered only when the ignition is on. This setup ensures that the dashcam operates only when the vehicle starts.

Ground Wire: Find an unpainted metal part inside the vehicle and secure the ground wire by crimping and tightening it.

4.Test and Check

After completing the wiring, don't rush to reassemble all the components. First, turn on the ignition and test if the dashcam works correctly, checking for any irregularities such as unstable power or interruptions in operation.

5.Finalize the Installation

If everything is functioning properly, tidy up the hardwire kit and all wiring, and replace any panels or parts initially removed.

Safety Tips
