G'day, so, where have you guys installed your dashcams?

I just had a Blackvue installed and the installer fitted the front camera under the rear view mirror.

I then had a few problems which I found out was a result of the camera interfering with the sensors in the plastic casing behind the rear view mirror.

A Mitsubishi engineer told me that the car book stated not to stick anything below or to the side of the sensors etc.

Mitzi said the dashcam had to be positioned on the passenger side of the windscreen near the top corner.

I moved mine and all is good, however, anyone else had this problem?

It's a pity there's not a way to hook into the parking camera system. Models that have the 360 degree parking camera system could be hacked to make a great dash cam.

Just resurrecting this thread to find out if anyone has installed a dashcam yet and where did you place it?

Thanks, do you have problems with the sensors/radar stuff?

I asked Mitsubishi Australia if I could mount it where you did and they said it was not recommended, they told me to put if as far away as possible.

I ended up putting it just next to the rippled bit, however, sometimes I have problems with the rain sensor, it didn't work 100%

Then again, mine is a Blackvue giving off heaps of signals with GPS, cloud etc etc.

I have noticed a few strange things from the sensors but I think its their problems and not from the SG. I have one place where it almost always says BRAKE even though nothing is there. I would say 9 out of 10 times I drive through it, it yells it. Lane departure warning comes up when there is crack patching where the tires normally run on the road. The other weird one was it thought i was changing lanes going over a bit larger crosswalk(zebra stripes). That one was a very facepalm moment.
The SG is shielded very well and the GPS antenna is all the way to the corner of the windshield (recommended placement). WIFI is off by default and when turned on you cannot record (another feature so that it is not causing interference while recording).
