A couple of months ago I fitted my dashboard camera which is a nextbase duo

Image

I ran the wire under the trim and fitted a cigarette splitter, they don't recommend to hard wire the camera into the car as this can cause damage to the camera

Image

Image

My new steering wheel came today

Image

Time to remove the old one

Image

Image

Looks smarter, plus being slightly bigger than the old one, I can now see the dials better and makes the steering easier

Hello Roy, Please tell me where you gained the following info....
"I ran the wire under the trim and fitted a cigarette splitter, "they don't recommend to hard wire the camera into the car as this can cause damage to the camera"
I feel a "rant" No a mega rant with Halfords if this is true :twisted: :twisted:
A cool steering wheel BTW
Cheers, Mike.
Coming second place makes you the fastest loser.

Only going by what is said in the instructions that came with my dash cam, however you can hot wire cams into the car, check you instructions first, might just be a disclaimer just in-case you wire it incorrectly and then you warranty is invalid

I'm sure if Halfords fitted it, you be fine and if any problems, it will be on their backs ;)

The new steering wheel does look better. It's a little more 'restrained' :lol:

I guess dash cams are getting more popular with more and more idiots and insurance scammers about.
Cheers

The Hard top has been primed and painted. Looks like tomorrow I'll be removing the soft top and fitting the hardtop on
