We’ve all heard the stories of close calls on the roads, and no matter how careful you are, accidents can still happen. A dash cam can help you protect yourself in case of an accident, by providing video evidence of what really happened.
Dash cams are becoming increasingly popular, as they are a relatively inexpensive way to protect yourself on the roads. However, before you can take advantage of all the benefits that a dash cam can offer, you first need to know how to install one.
What You Need to Know Before You Begin
Before you start the installation process, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, you need to make sure that you’re following all local laws and regulations. In some places, it is illegal to mount any device, let alone a dash camera, on your windshield - so please do check before you start. At the time of writing, the UK has no prohibition on this as long as the driver's view is un-obstructed.
You also need to make sure that you have the right tools and supplies for the job. You’ll need a dash cam, of course, as well as any mounting equipment that came with it. If you’re using a hardwire kit to power your dash cam, you’ll also need a few additional tools and supplies as indicated in the guidelines.
Installing/Using your Dash Cam
The easiest way to install your dash cam is with a standard car charger. All you need to do is plug the car charger into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter or 12v socket, then plug the dash cam into the car charger. This method is by far the quickest and easiest way to install a dash cam.
If you’re looking for a more permanent installation, you can use a hardwire kit to power your dash cam. This method requires a bit more work, but it’s worth it for the increased security and peace of mind. An option is to use the Halfords installation service, which makes the process even easier. The kit comes with everything you need to install your dash cam, including the mounting equipment and power adapter. All you need to do is order the package, take the kit which is delivered to your door, to your appointment with Halfords and let them do the rest.
Troubleshooting Common Dash Cam Installation Issues
If you’re having trouble installing your dash cam, there are a few things you can try. First, make sure that all the connections are secure and that the wires are not damaged. You should also check your car’s fuse box for any blown fuses. If you’re using a hardwire kit, make sure that the fuse tap is properly connected to the correct fuse.
If all else fails, you can always enlist the help of a professional. Halfords offers a convenient bundle kit and install package, so you can get your dash camera installed by the professionals.
