    Hardwiring a dash cam is really the way to go.

    I had the Best Buy geek squad car install tech use this hardwire kit instead of stringing a power cord from the top of my windshield across my dashboard down to the power outlet which I think looks really sloppy. Once installed, you can’t even see it. It plugs right into your fuse box and is activated when you turn your car on with your key. And it shuts off automatically when you shut off your engine. I had the dash cam and the hardwire installed for free because I’m a member of the total tech support plan. TTS Plan is a great value! Plus by using the hardware kit in your car, you still have the option of using the standard accessory plug in power cord with your dash cam if you choose to take the dash cam and use it in another vehicle for a while. You just unplug the dash cam from a hardwire and then Use the standard wire power plug for the dash cam in another vehicle if you want.

    Go the hard wire route!

    I did my research on dash cams, and the general consensus was that hard wiring them vs using the battery OR the power cable was the best way to go because it allows the dash cam to automatically power on if you use a dash cam that has the auto turn-on mode for tings that happen while your car is parked, automatically turns the dash cam on and/off when you turn the car on and off, save you from having to have excess wires exposed, and saves you from having to constantly plug/unplug it. This hard wire kit is specific to the Rexing V1 dash cam w/ rear camera I purchased, and it's priced comparably to other companies' hard wire kits. It gets the job done for a pretty low price. Hope this helps. Thanks. Matthew 7:12

    I have purchased 2 of these. They are very inexpensive for what they do. Easy to install and hide all the wires from sight. I'm keeping 1 in the box for when the camera or power supply give out. I had to cut the fuse off the end and add my own. Car manufactures are starting to put the fuses below the surface so the fuse end it comes with will no longer fit. This is an issue with the cars fuse box. At some point Rexing will catch up and rework this issue. Not a big deal really, just cut it off and add your own.

    I bought this kit believing that this was not included with the dash cam. Well this was included in the package though it was not listed. (Not mad, just mildly surprised). My only problem with this product was that it uses a blade fuse that does not fit in my car. It has a ATO size; you will need to splice it if doesn’t use that fuse. The product picture was somewhat misleading since it doesn’t show the fuse. Otherwise works as intended.

    This hard wire kit enabled my installer to completely hide the wires instead of having them hang down from the camera and plug into the power socket. Whenever I start the car the camera automatically comes on, then shuts off when the car is turned off. This was a relatively cheap add-on for great convenience.

    Connected the cam directly to a switched 12V connection in my car, so I did not need this wiring kit at all. Yet I am sure it will do the job in case you don't have such a 12V connection available. The wire is long enough to pass by the front window towards the battery section of most cars, or better still, the contact switch.

    My car (Honda CRV 2002) has only one power oulet. If I run dashcam via cigarette lighter, then I cannot use my GPS. I use the hard wire kit instead. After connect the kit into my fuse box, any time I start the car, the dashcam is on, so I can free the cigarette ligher for my GPS.

    Says it works with 2017 Ford F250 Super Duty Diesel but the fuse does not fit in the panel. I had to shave down the fuse in order for it to fit correctly and do a little giggling...I have had it in for over a year and it has not come loose.

    Since I didn't do the installation myself I can only tell you what the installation team told me. They said it makes installation easy. Clean insulation so no wires running across your dash. Hard wire is the way to go.

    Great hard wire kit. I have a Rexing V1 hard wired in two vehicles now. The kit comes with everything you need, including a nice little tool for tucking wires under interior molding. Easy plug in to any available fuse location.

    Bought 6 for dash cams. Come with the fuse built into the cord so find an open spot and plug in. Connect to ground and your are ready to go. WOW
