I have Nextbase 402, had it fitted by halfords 2 years ago in my 2017 PHEV, not hard wired as at the time Hyundai could not make there mind up regarding warranty and after market electrics wired in to system! (Not long after that they started supplying and fitting dash cams themselves) so wiring was all hidden bar the 6 inches where it was plugged into the l/h cig lighter socket in center consul, when I got new 2020 EV I removed from PHEV and fitted it myself in EV, really easy to do.
I had a "RoadEye" dash-cam ( camera front and rear ) fitted by the dealer as an extra when I bought the car. It could be that this web cam is only available in Australia, not sure about this.
Alas, while the cameras take reasonable videos, and the unit is so well hidden that I have failed to find it. I cannot recommend this product because the phone app to control it is so crappy.
It has a wireless interface, it is a major drama to even connect to it via the app on my phone, even when connected, the menus and buttons are confusing. I would say they have paid some inexperienced app developer to develop the app. I have used it to download mp4 videos to my computer, but it was not easy ... ( sigh )
There must be better dash cams out there.
I got this and this. Was pretty easy to run the wire from the camera to the roof then down the pillar to the fuse box. Works awesome. Trickiest part was I had to flip the fuse for the Acc one but then it worked.
I fitted my own Nextbase 522GW and rear window remote cam., to my 2019 Ioniq E.V (Classic).
I wanted the front camera as unobtrusive as possible, so chose to position it, such that from the driver's perspective, only the cables can be seen:
The rear cam has a wide field of view, so I chose to position it in the centre, of the lower vertical rear glazed portion of the tailgate.
Routing the cable internally through the tailgate panels, through the flexible rubber cable trunking which connects the tailgate to the N/S roofline, thence tucking-in around the periphery of the internal roof lining, across to the offside internal roof/door junctures and across the top of the driver's side windscreen to the camera.
The power cable ran from the camera, over the driver's windscreen, down the A pillar, and to the fuse box.
N.B the triangular(ish) panel facing the driver's door, has to be carefully popped-off to gain access to two screws holding the edge of the knee/under steering-wheel panel cover; the airbag unit remains untouched.
I did purchase the Nextbase hardwire kit, but discovered that neither of the provided fuse piggy-back inserts, were suitable for the Ioniq's teenie-weenie fuses; cue a visit to Amazon for the correct 'Micro 2 fuse tap'.
One final point, don't skimp on the memory card; after an incident, it's no time to find that the evidence you need is hopelessly corrupted.
Hi, I'm in Australia and I wonder about the accuracy of the owners manual.
One item I would like your feedback please is for example on page 5-21 it is stated when the Smart Recuperation is engaged the word "Auto" is displayed in "White" and when a proceeding vehicle is detected the white...
Just got my 38kwh Ioniq, my first EV. I have just parked at a train station with a free to use 7kw charging post. The trip to the station took me down to 39% and could have used it to fully charge but I am leaving the car for 4 days while I'm in holiday and would block one of the two sockets...
Purchased my new 2019 Ioniq with 9 miles on the clock from my local Hyundai dealer on Feb 3rd 2020. 2 weeks later its failed and the AA have taken it back to the dealer with 100% Battery Charged and stuck in turtle mode!! Not happy and hoping a fast fix can be performed as having spent 6 months...
