Time for a dash cam

Recommended Posts

Well, I've avoided it so far but I now think that a dash cam would be a good investment.

The problem is, I don't want my XF interior looking like a recording studio.

If anybody has a neat and tidy dash cam installation in their XF please can you let me see pictures / details?

Thanks

Thanks to Jim's inspiration I eventually decided on

Very highly recommended by a colleague at work who let me see his installation (It was on a Mercedes and it looks superbly engineered). Basically it just looks like it was part of the car's original design.

They are going to install it for me on Saturday. If anybody is interested I'll put a picture or two on this thread.

Here you can see the system before installation and once fitted to the car.

It's very difficult for me to get in position to take the photo so this is as close as I could get.

I doubt that anybody not conversant with our cars could tell that it isn't OEM. The camera itself works well with all the usual functions and is controlled via an app on your phone.

Fabulous looking camera and housing. Good photos as well. Do you know if these are made for the S-Type.

Regards, John

No idea John, but send a message to the seller at the website address given above. He's very quick and very helpful

Excellent work and a very neat installation too.🤙

The eBay seller arranged installation for me Jim. Only took an hour.

This one was more expensive than the one you showed me but you did give me the original idea 🙂 I got this one because I actually saw one in the flesh, as it were. In my view well worth the cost to preserve the classy interior of the XF.
