I really like the look of how the fitcamX fits behind the rear view mirror with no cables etc.

I have been using a NextBase camera for a few years now and really like it but having a camera without trailing wires sounds pretty appealing.
id.3 Family Pro Performance ordered 8/11/21, build week 17, then 23 then 40, then 45, then 50, then delivery expected in January, 2023, picked up the car on January 16th. Yay!
Order number 31316***

Good luck they made a total b***s up of mine and failed to return to take it all out, I had to pay another guy to install the camera and remove their failure, really poor customer service from RS Connect.

In short, you unclip the housing under the rear view mirror and put that to one side - the camera comes ready installed in a new housing and you disconnect a plug in the mirror, the new housing comes with a piggy back cable - just plug in to that and roberts your dads brother. very neat finish which looks like itv was put there by vw plus no cables to route. I believe they do the same kit but with a rear camera but I decided against that as it would have involved wire routing etc which I was nervous about. Great images, an App to review and it does all the normal auto save in an accident - even came with a 64gb memory card. Cost £170 (when I bought it in Feb 24).
Nice one, love the hastle free fitting and OEM look, just purchased one 👍
Cheers
Chris
