    I recently purchased an Owl Car Cam and have nothing but praise for it. Live view outside and in, create instant video clips, easy install and uses the ODB-II port for power.

    Pics of the owl cam can be found here: https://www.owlcam.com

    It connects to the ODB-II port so it knows when the car is running and when it's off. Also knows when the battery gets low (from say extreme cold), it goes in to ultra low power mode. Cam foot print is decent sized but it also acts as security to take a video from within the car if someone breaks in. Also if the cam is stolen, Owl will replace it for free.

    Sometimes you have to look stuff up..........I looked at this a while ago, looks good but subscription service, uses mobile service. $100 per year after the 1st yr, or strictly wifi no cost. So if you don't mind that, should work out for you. I passed on it.

    RSNav cam looks really promising. For only $65 I'm definitely interested in taking the plunge. My only concern is how its powered. I currently have a mirror tap for my radar detector and I'd like to know if its possible to power both of these from the same wiring harness..

    I wish you could read the instructions. You can't zoom into the wiring harness either so very hard to tell.

    Looks cool! Pretty much plug and play. However the camera records on where it is pointing correct. Itís not as if the front points outside and the screen records inside and toward back of car? Can you verify. Looks like in the vid the guy also records himself pulled over.

    Whichever option you guys end up getting, just make sure to have it run even when the car is parked.

    Ok with Ali link there are install instructions. Looks very easy except for one part for me cause Iím dumb and donít know how to find where to plug the wire.

    How do figure out where to find out which fuse to plug wire in (I assume you pull out fuse, place wire on top of metal part of fuse and push in) for ACC and constant wire??

    I'd personally look for an unused fuse location and/or use a fuse tap instead.

    You just need to use a volt meter to see if itís a constant power. There should be some empty spots which means you just need to pull out the small panel and place the wire in the back and place the appropriate fuse in the location you choose. If no open spots are available, you can buy a fuse piggy back from any parts store. Either way is very simple. Hope this helps

    ok I'm really dumb with this stuff.

    So I would need 2 tap a fuse right? one for ACC and one for constant. Then plug the wire into the tap a fuse and put the original fuse on the tap a fuse?

    Can't I just read manual and see what the fuses do and figure out which is constant and which is ACC?

    Also a dumb questions, but with my volt meter, how can I test to see if power is constant? Where do I put the two prongs since the fuse hole is so small?

    Ok I found on this YouTube video to use horn for constant and home link for acc: https://youtu.be/d93reJHwyeQ

    How the heck do i remove this bottom part of mirror to see the inside to take pics for order? I already broke a clip on the small upper part above it:

    Anyone know how to contact the Ali seller? Maybe I'm slow, but I can't find any way to. I want to see what the dual cam option looks like.

    This can't possibly work with our cars... That piece in front of the mirror is not replaceable. On EU cars the HBA camera is already there... In other cars there are humidity sensors here. Here is a comparison shot between NA and EU cars highlighting the HBA camera:
