How to install a Dash cam in Most Cars

Sorry about some of the glare and wind noise…

For the last few years I’ve been using various dash cams, I am by no means a professional installer, in this video I will share my tips for install, placement and a few things I picked up along the way. As you can see from some of my footage Dash cams are necessary I hope to only ever need to pull footage of North Jersey Mopar runs and sunsets…

This is 1920×1080 with the camera as is out of the box, quality is good, but with all dash cams the dashboad glare annoys me. I use the footage for cruising videos and other stuff so I prefer a clean video.

CPL FILTER ADDED

This is 1920 x 1080 with a stick on CPL (polarizer) I picked it up from eBay for $6.00 for another camera and it happen to stick on this one as well almost eliminating the glare

ProClip Install 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee ( 2011 – 2017 models )

 

After a few months of testing ProClip is officially WorkPlayDrive Approved! No BS just one good solid mount.

This mount was received for free as thanks for my previous videos and social media posts. Free stuff in no way affects my feeling towards the product, I have returned many free/discounted items that were not WorkPlayDrive approved.

http://www.proclipusa.com

One part made specifically for the vehicle married to another made for the phone. This mount is rock solid and worth every penny.
