I started this thread a couple weeks ago, looking for an on board camera/DVR system. I finally got it in and wanted show off the install. It was not easy, but I'm pleased.
I put the unit in the center console. It had about a 16" deep compartment that I cut down to 3.5" and made a false bottom. The unit is underneath.
Here is the overhead console. In the garage door opener holder I installed a 3.5" monitor. Just enough to keep an eye on camera placement and to get into the settings.
The rear view mirror install.
The left "Encounter" cam. That tiny hole is the camera.
Here's a brief clip of it in action. My right side camera has slipped a little so until I can remount it, it's pretty much a wifie crotch cam. I also need to reposition the mic as it's currently about at the knee, so audio is not at optimum performance. Video quality isn't well represented here either. The system has various quality settings and is quite good. I lost a lot of resolution to speed upload to photobucket.
