Re: Fitting dashcam

Well that was easy. Temporary fitting using the 12v outlet cable while I wait on the micro 2 tap cable to arrive. I've installed a Nextbase 320XR front/rear set. Both cameras attach to mounts with strong magnets. https://i.imgur.com/g8lwwrO.jpg The power cable. The ferrite is slightly annoying but i...

Re: Fitting dashcam

I've bought x2 Nextbase bundles, including hardware kits, one for the Megane & one for my Wife's CH-R. I've now ordered micro 2 tap cables (amazon is my friend here). At least the fuse box in the Megane is in the cabin. I've confirmed the 12v socket fuse - Renault still lable it as a cigarette l...

From my own research, I think you’ll need a Micro2 fuse tap cable.

Re: Fitting a dash cam.

I've installed a Nextbase 222 with their hardwire-kit. Quite easy to run the cable under the roof and window-trim. When connected to the fuse that's dedicated to the lighter, it works perfectly.

Android auto, what is it good for?

For me just podcasts.
The Megane is a Google car so it's map integration with added car info, like charge state at end of journey is superior to the phones maps.
I can't get plugshare to work in the car, `an error has occurred.... So just podcasts for me.

Re: Horn

Doesn't really suit the look of the car. I've used it several times so far as pedestrians tried to impersonate Lemmings.
