In this video, we will show you how to hardwire a dash cam on a BMW X5. You can use our short video as your guide, or you are weclome to contact us to seek more professional help. Dash cams are important in terms of video evidence, should you ever be involved in a car accident or witness one. Here are the key takeaways from our video:
✔ In newer vehicles -vehicles with push starts and more technology- you must use a relay to properly install a dash cam.
✔ You must connect it to a circuit that does not have constant power. The video shows you how to identify which circuits are connected to constant power and which ones aren't. Do not use a circuit with constant power.
✔ Connect the relay to one of the wires from the circuit.
✔ Using a relay is the only way to properly connect a dash cam to a vehicle, connecting it other ways can cause electrical problems within your vehicle.
