Greatest tool on Earth to prove liability against someone else.....becomes "evidence" in the event that you screw up. If you erase it, then you are guilty of obstruction.

As a lawyer, I always recommend to my clients that they NOT provide a voluntary tool that can and will be used against you in a court of law.

How easy is it to move the camera between vehicles, assuming power and bracket are in both?

Also, how do these cameras hold up to Arizona summer heat? A black camera in full sunlight has to get extremely hot.

very easy, both just slide in/out of the holder and you unplug/plug 3 cables

The front-rear cable seems to show one straight and one angled connector. Does it matter which one goes to the rear? Presumably it'll be a lot easier to fish the straight connector through the rubber tube between the car and the hatch.
Yes use the straight one in the back, the angled one will be extremely difficult to fish through the rubber grommet tube.

Got my preordered 900 from BlackBoxMyCar this week, need to install it soon. They have always done a great job of supporting USA clients, from everything I hear. Their YouTube videos are great, also.

I wouldn’t order from BlackVue, better support from an authorized dealer like BBMC.

Should I use the 12v connection in the rearview mirror. Cant seem to find a consistent answer
The answers may vary depending on camera. For the BV, you can since it does parking mode based on ‘non-movement’. Others like Thinkware need two power supplies (switched and non).

So, here, for the S, the power source there is fine. The X’s don’t have that and need to run to the OBD or fuse block or elsewhere.
