Adding a Dash Camera to My Drive Record Unit.


Introduction: Adding a Dash Camera to My Drive Record Unit.

About: As of April 2017 I have decided to no longer post on instructables. The fact that several of my published works have been removed without my consent is inexcusable. Also the insult of an author having no co...

My DRU has proven to be most useful.

It serves as a reverse camera and also records video of the front and rear cameras while I'm driving. For dispute settlements I want the instrument cluster or dashboard readings recorded. Here is how I installed it. First thing was to drill a tiny hole at my steering wheel trim.

Step 1: Mounting the Camera.

I bolted the bracket onto the trim then screwed the camera on its bracket. I routed the wires into the bottom panel.

Step 2: Getting Data and Power Ready.

The 12v supply I took from the pre-installed dc dc converter and I proactively had the cat5e cable ready for this camera.

Step 3: Hooking Up.

Using cable ties I secured the cables and plugged in the camera.

Step 4: Adding to the DRU.

Using the plain default settings on the camera I added it to the ispy software that is the heart of my DRU. Now I have a record of my speed plus turn indicators when I'm driving!
