Hi,

Has any one fitted the Nissan dashcam (Part No:B8452DF60A) to their J12 Qashqai? It looks as if it fits in front of the interior mirror and presumably there is a power supply there already.

I have had no luck on finding fitting instructions online and help on that would be appreciated.

I'd be more concerned about specifications than fitting instructions.

I held off getting a dashcam until I could get a FullHD one but I'd still like more resolution than that gives - currently using a Nextbase 312GW

Had a chance to look at the instructions..

The Nissan Dashcam comes with a wiring loom a variety of clips, template and permanent sticky pads Fitting requires removing the lower dash trim, A pillar trim and door seal trim adjacent to the A pillar trim. The original A pillar trim clips need to be levered out and the kit ones put in.

Although I have done this sort of thing many times in the past now days my arthritis would make this quite arduous. Also, although overall I like the Qashqai a few niggles are creeping in not least the 26 mpg so it may not be a keeper.

Going to use the dashcam out of my old car despite not being 4k or anything close has a very good chip and lens so has a cracking picture day and night and put up with messy cables.

Have you tried suggesting to the dealer that, since you bought the car from them, they might like to throw in free fitting if you buy it from them? I had various extras fitted to my motorbike by the dealer when I bought it and I only paid the parts cost - which they also discounted 10% (you get a "Gold Card" 10% discount for a year from them).
