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…
