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).

Hi OldSalt,

I installed a BlackVue cam just below the rearview Mirror and since then i am occasionally getting "Front Camera block" and the collision icon on the dashscreen is lit amber. should this be placed anywhere else?

The Australian owners manual recommends against mounting anything which emits RFI in the area of the window mounted sensors behind the rear view mirror. A dash cam with GPS is such a device. Here, Mitsubishi Australia recommends mounting dash cams to the left or right side of the windscreen.

That is a very common complaint here, same as toll road E-tags.

I just installed a Thinkware x350 dash cam tied into the vanity light in the passenger side sun visor. I reset the time to off the interior lights at 3 min, but it doesn't go off, the vanity lights just blink. Does this have anything to do with Mitsu using a transistor to shut off the light. Ran the car battery way down and had to charge it to get car to start. Vanity light shuts off correctly when the dash cam is not plugged-in. Any ideas on how to get it to shut off?

Did you install on the left hand edge of the windscreen? There is an area here that the wipers do not reach.
