My new dashcam arrived today, it was not plug and play without taking several panels off. It looked a bit complicated so i rang the main dealer and they said they would fit it for £130 inc vat
I said ok and it is booked in for Monday.
I will scan the install instructions and upload and user guide
£130 does sound a lot as camera it's self is around £140 any local places who may have more experience in those types of things. Dealers I've dealt with near me are at best useless. Hence Nissan UK giving me a £200 good will voucher full tank of petrol and carwow giving me a Amazon £50 voucher.

Now: J12 Nissan Qashqai
1.3 DiG-T MH 158 Xtronic Tekna, Automatic, Petrol arrived 23/12/21

Disappointing its maximum resolution is 1920x1080 - I wouldn't bother with anything less than that. Admittedly it's a 120º viewing angle so things won't be as small as with my Nextbase 312GW which is 140º (as is its replacement the 322GW)

Interesting to note that https://www.transcend-info.com/Article/Dashcam states:

The most common field of view found among dashcams is 130 degrees to 160 degrees. While a larger field of view means more imagery is captured, this comes at the cost of distortion and decreased resolution, particularly around the edges. Therefore, a wider angular field of view isn't necessarily better.
